Silence is Golden: Unless You're Playing With Ventrilo

Aug 12, 2008
My adventure in "World of Warcraft" begins again. As I take the reigns of my level 60 Draenei Priest, I begin to feel that nervous chill that always seems to overtake me before I enter any raid. This time, my guildmates and I are headed to Blackwing Lair; a quaint, little sight-seeing trip through the Blackrock Mountains. I've planned for everything. Potions and bandages are at capacity, my bags are filled with food and drink, and I've customized my interface to make for quick and easy healing. So, why is it that after our first encounter, half of us are dead on the ground with the other half scurrying about like blind mice with a sugar rush? I'll tell you why... we lacked communication.

You see, before a battle begins, everyone can type out strategies, orders and words of encouragement and they'll each be well-received and understood. Unfortunately, once you're in the heat of battle, typing is not only the hardest thing to do, but your words are often lost in the chaos and missed by fellow party members. Sure, you can try to use WoW's built-in voiceover technology, but after enough people are on, it starts to sound like your talking on poorly-constructed walkie-talkies... not to mention the unexpected drops and gameplay slowdowns. If you're looking to avoid your guild's demise, you'll need something that was made with MMORPGs in mind: Ventrilo.

With Ventrilo you can create a flow of communication for your raid, using easy to follow instructions. While other freeware programs claim they can do the same, Ventrilo gives users a much more customizable solution to their role-playing needs. The real proof is from the experience of real gamers.... All of them tell us that once they experience ventrilo's quality of service, they will never go back to the free (but low quality) solutions. With these options on hand, raids can now go off without a hitch and my Draenei Priest can return to Blackwing Lair without fear of death through lack of teamwork. Until you can experience the true quality delivered by a properly hosted ventrilo server, then you will have no idea the quality experience you are missing.

One of the best offerings to the MMORPG community is Ventrilo's ability to create a channel specifically for raid leaders that can be heard by the party on a separate channel. This nifty feature gives your fearless leader the ability to bark his commands to the masses without hearing the comments of the group, allowing him or her to maintain a clear mind and concentrate on the objectives. For a quick, but incredibly detailed tutorial on how to set up a raid channel head to www.guildventrilo.com. As that tutorial will show you, in just a mater of minutes, you can be experiencing game quality like never before.

Now, as I head back to the monster-laden wonderland of Blackwing Lair, I move with confidence knowing that our group is working as a team. To help your next raid run just as smooth, try what we and countless others have done: rent a Ventrilo server.
