In the ninety-fifth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we admit that we are burned out on Garrisons and offer up alternatives to playing WoW without them, we ride our flying mounts on the ground in Draenor and pretend to fly by jumping around and falling, we debate whether or not Nagrand is still the best and our most favorite of zones, we use Handy Notes Draenor to reveal all things resources, treasures, and rares, we try to focus more on questing, but our quest log is constantly full, we farm Dragon Soul and ride Deathwing’s back to make some gold, and we gear up for LFR by running heroic Shadow Moon Burial Grounds so we can feel really good about being tanks.

Bitter and Salty is brought to you weekly by Molsan and Sláinte.

In the ninety-fourth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we ding 100 just like everyone else and head straight into separate Molten Cores, we spend all of our time running our alts through Garrisons crafting Truesteel Helms, Sláinte changes his name and introduces Azeroth to Dark Sláinte, Molsan repeatedly falls off of circular wind platforms in Skyreach, we run Scenarios, Proving Grounds, and defend invasions… all without leaving our Garrison, and we remind everyone that the auction house is neutral, you still need fifty thousand gold in the expansion, and play the game without reading any guides.

Ding 100!!!

Legendary Ring Quest

Gearing Up Beyond i600

Crafted Truesteel Set

Garrison Missions for i615 now to equip at 100

“You can only have 3 crafted items equipped at once” – WHY

MC gives you an i640 helm… Of course the first item I crafted was a helm

Garrison Invasions and Gold Victory

“Once you reach max level, these events are triggered organically. What this means is, as you fight powerful foes among the enemy factions of Draenor (generally in and around the areas for Apexis Crystal Missions) you’ll draw their attention and an enemy force will eventually prepare to attack your Garrison. When that happens, the commander outside your Town Hall will have a quest for you, allowing you to trigger the invasion.”

Each award can be earned once a week

Invader’s Forgotten Treasure can contain an i645 piece or a mount

In the ninety-third World of Warcraft podcast episode, we cover the state of professions in the game so far and consider the possibility that Blizzard may be eliminating professions altogether, we ask if Ore is broken and speculate on when it will be nerfed to bring it in line with other gathered materials, we analyze the many focuses of the expansion to determine what is the real gameplay in Warlords of Draenor, we research which profession is making the most gold, we debate the Personal Loot versus the Need/Greed loot system, and we wish everyone a happy 10th Anniversary of World of Warcraft.

Professions SO FAR

Drop all gathering professions?

Lack of balance between ore, leather, and herbs

Is ore “broken?” Good time to buy and stockpile?

Fish Shack Dailies

ENCHANT SHACK IS THE GREATEST EVVVVAAAAA!!!!!!

What is REAL WoW gameplay?

Is it questing? Dungeons? Garrisons?!?

A significant portion of gameplay is now sunk into Garrisons

More Garrison addons help (Master Plan and Garrison Mission Manager)

Making Gold in WoD

Inscription is D2M, but OH WAIT

From “Aarondf” on the Consortium forums:

“MANY people didn’t realize that you don’t need to wait for the Darkmoon Faire this expansion AND the fact that the Inscription decks have different names once transformed into the trinkets, I have made a killing on direct trinket sales. Many scribes (and I mean almost all) didn’t realize this and just posted their cards individually for sale, not thinking they could make decks of their own, or trading/waiting to complete their own.“

From Geers on the Consortium forums:

“gold making has been dominated by inscription so far this xpac”

http://stormspire.net/general-discussion/15895-whats-your-wod-gold-making-progress-report-so-far.html

Molten Core

YOU MUST RUSH TO 100, THEN GEAR TO 615.

LIMITED TIME.

Meh…

Happy 10th Anniversary

How do you delete the Corgi pet email?!?

Dungeon Loot Changes

From Rygarius:

We now have a hotfix in the works that will do two things:

  • The default loot system for Dungeon Finder groups will once again be Personal, instead of Need Before Greed. Full premade groups that prefer the latter system will be able to select it manually, as always.
  • We’re increasing loot yield from the final boss of each dungeon.
    • With Personal loot active, each player in a group will now always receive an item from the final boss.
    • With Need Before Greed active, the boss will now drop 3 items to be shared among the group as desired, up from 2 previously.

In the ninety-second World of Warcraft podcast episode, we queue up for the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor, we send mains and alts through the Dark Portal to compare DPS and leveling specs, we learn a difficult lesson when we determine that optional bonus objectives are mandatory, we are immediately addicted to Garrisons which causes anxiety, stress, and fun, Molsan boosts a Druid and runs away from the Blasted Lands while Slainte boosts a Shaman without any spells, we review the addon Broker Garrison for tracking follower missions and work orders, and we question why leaving a guild as great as ours is absolutely critical for being a successful raider.

In the ninety-first World of Warcraft podcast episode, we recap all of the major Warlords of Draenor news from Blizzcon, we discuss our first impressions of the Warcraft movie trailer, we ask Blizzard game designers if having a Garrison in Warlords is necessary, we ask each other the questions that we forgot to ask at Blizzcon, we realize that playing a Goblin isn’t as much fun as playing an Orc, especially when abilities are missing from your rotation, and we choose to ignore our own tips and decide to go big and have lots of regrets as we head into the next expansion for World of Warcraft.
