In the ninetieth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we upgrade to 6.0 and stare longingly at our character screen, we answer Thrall’s call and prepare for the Iron Horde in the Blasted Lands, we raid UBRS and spoils and get replaced by far superior tanks, we welcome the Headless Horse Man back and save his candies so we can dress up like Arthas, Slainte updates his Macro Toolkit to fix his Blood DK rotation, Molsan levels his Goblin by clicking on all the Candy Buckets, we break the game by fixing the auction house for Blizzard once and for all, and we recommend that if you’re attending Blizzcon, you should go big, or go home.

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

Soloing Old Content

OH MY, from Washer: “To offset the effect of this change on players’ ability to solo or otherwise do old content, we’ve made a change to the combat system that gives players scaling bonus damage and reduced damage taken when fighting enemies that are lower-level and from a prior expansion. With the sheer amount of content involved, and the number of special-case mechanics found in boss fights over the years, it’s quite possible that there are some exceptions or quirks for which we’ve failed to account.”
