In the one hundred and third World of Warcraft podcast episode, we determine the exact moment that Legion goes live in the US and the EU, and plan for all the DDOS attacks, we announce the raid schedule for The Emerald Nightmare, and plan to get our mains and alts raid-ready on or before September 20th, we debate about the reliance on addons for raiding in Legion, and whether or not Blizzard should nerf boss encounters so we can play with Stock UI, we are embarrassed to admit that we use mouse wheels and macros to make gold and do DPS, and we tell you exactly where you should not eat when you’re at the Anaheim Convention Center this year for BlizzCon.

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

The Race to 110 by September 20th

Gamescom interview with Ion Hazzikostas

  • Artifacts and artifact power will be relevant throughout Legion

Content Longevity and Relevance

  • Investing in artifact power on a “main” and then they nerf you… rage quit?
  • Keeping raids and content relevant longer
  • What if you experience raids and content later in the game? Are you a lesser WoW player?

DDOS

  • What does it mean and why is WoW always down?

New Segment: Molsan is Embarrassed

  • Mousewheel is back!
  • For auctions and DPS
  • If you use macros or a guide, does that make you a good or bad player
