In the seventeenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we fly around and talk to Lunar Festival elders for coins and big experience gains, we cover professions and crafting workflow using TradeSkillMaster, we give out some tips for Tailoring and disenchanting, we explain how to properly stand on your Tillers farm, and we vent and rant about our upcoming Herald of the Titans raid.

In the sixteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we discuss raiding in MoP, but also going back to Ulduar. We learn how to switch talents on the fly and what to do with guild bank tabs. We are relieved to be making gold without stress by buying transmog gear and crafting belt buckles, and we finally determine that we’re just a couple of tillering noobs.

In the fifteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we get all meta and confused, turn on meters for some dungeon runs, search for cool transmog sets and find nothing but human females, ponder about the next WoW expansion, declare WoWuction better than Undermine Journal for watch list notifications, and put our hands all over the Razer Nostromo.

No Decent Way to Lookup/Find Cool Transmog Gear/Sets

Next WoW Expansion
