In the fifty-third World of Warcraft podcast episode, we fix all the problems with professions and request a new UI for crafting, we wonder if our alts would get any attention if our mains had access to every profession, we get back to our weekly challenges and discuss participating in a new gold-making challenge; Sláinte wants to delete some of his 90s, while Molsan begins powerleveling pets to 25, we give out yet another tip for Blizzcon, and we continue the circle of rage over LFR and Flex Raiding by speculating about a Blizzard conspiracy to get rid of LFR.
Professions and Alts
@Ennvina Could the profession UI suck less? Absolutely. What do you mean by breakdown specifically?

@the4tracker Would love to see more discussion on this topic from players. Alts are cool, but alts just to get around the prof limit bug me.

Should Sláinte just delete 3 of his 90s? (Druid, Rogue, Warrior)
Finish old dungeons/raids? Mount runs? Level another alt to 90? Level LW to 600 NO BUYING MATS
Weekly Challenge #2: Attumen the Huntsman
Gold Making Weekly Challenge
Dominate the market with one item / process (i.e. Living Steel Belt Buckles, Flasks, etc.) instead a bunch of random items
Try for a week to focus only on one way to make gold and report back with detailed stats and compare it to posting random transmog/flipped items

Call from Strumpet
I think there are raid encounters that are made to fail in LFR
Galakras, but not Jin’rokh
Is there anything else that has more QQ than LFRz?
Hey sliante and molsan,
Kanzaki from ER here. Was just listening to episode 52 and though it’s not one of your weeks of wow questions, I really liked your question about top 5 wow changes…
So, for me, the biggest change in the game was at the end of the burning crusade: Plus healing gear and plus spell damage gear merged into just spell power. I was a priest that leveled shadow, loved it, but decided to be useful, and would spec into mooncloth tailoring and be a healer at 70. When I hit 70, I was ready to heal, with my mooncloth set and all my plus healing gear. I hated it. I couldn’t do anything right and regulars were a complete disaster. Knowing that I would have to respec my character and my tailoring to get back to shadow, I said “forget that” and quit the game. I came back six months later and started leveling a new alt, but it wasn’t shadow. At the end of BC, healing power changed and I could join my guild in Karazhan for the first time, and I could do it as shadow. Though I have leveled other characters or specced into disc or holy, Kanzaki the shadow priest is my main and will stay that way, on the top of my character list.
Thanks for reading my rant and thanks for the great show.
Sincerely (in shadowform),
Kusof the Pally
Hey Molsan and Salty. Love the show and your tweets.
After listening to episode 52, I wondered what you Molsan (and definitely not for Salty who Hates guild repairs) thought was fair for Guild repairs. I had thought 75g or maybe 100g/day for our mains, but complaints came up every day with 5.4 and the damn timeless isle. Eventually I had enough and just bumped it to 250g a day. I’m on Bleeding-Hollow US, Horde side (who could play as the dirty alliance), and run a small guild of mostly PvPers. But ever since the timeless isle opened up, people are dying all over the place from falling or ganking, or even the Celestials, and repairs are adding up.
I can assure you the guild itself (Flonkerton, named after a silly game on an old episode of The Office) doesn’t have the cash flow to cover 250g/day. But gold is easy to find in WoW… and we have an army of alts to cover all our enchants/belt buckles/gems/xmutes/etc, so we don’t have many other costs in the game. And I have several markets I use to make loads of cash. But what level of daily repairs is fair?
And Salty, enjoy your DK vacation. I think we all know you’ll be back on your Pally before too long.
I know this mail is really close to recording day, so I hope I make it in this week. I’ve been meaning to mail you for a few weeks now to close out 30 W-WoW but I’ve been so busy! Well here goes:
Week 27 — A time you made friends with someone in a group?
As I said on another episode, I met my wife in WoW, our two guilds were doing H Malygos in WoLK. She had a sexy vent voice, and I was hooked. I knew her for a year before we first met, and it was <3 at first sight.
Week 28 — Your favorite dungeon/raid/world boss?
I love XT from Ulduar. I think its the funniest audio in the game.
Week 29 — Your favorite Mists of Pandaria dungeon?
This is hard for me because I love Asian themed anything. MOP is a wow dream come true. if I had to choose, it would be Temple of the Jade Serpent, although Stormstout brewery is a ton-o-fun
Week 30 — Your main character and what he/she means to you?
Wow, I am not even sure where to start with this. Jellad is Me, and I am Jellad. His history is wrapped up not only in world of Warcraft, but in Rift, Terra, and tabletop D&D that I played with RL friends a few years ago. He has a long and complicated story filled with dream states, lots of relationships, and life and death choices and situations. I don’t have it all written down anywhere, but its all in my head and my heart. He interacts, and treats people as I personally would treat someone. If you know D&D, he is a true neutral. Good for bad, tit for tat. Jellad is the first character, and the last character I will ever play. I make him first in every game I play, and he experiences game life before alts are even a twinkle in my eye. I know that sounds corny, but such is life, real, and virtual.
I also wanted to touch on some stuff you guys talked about last week
1. Murloc costumes rule. period
2. I would love to see you guys do weekly challenges again. (2 conditions, no leveling challenges and no gold making challenges) I have a personal maxed every class/profession challenge due by Christmas. (Currently 5 / 11)
<3 the show

PS – Please don’t hate me for hating fishing, but know that i max it out on all my toons, mostly because I am OCD.
I had two toons that never made it to level 20 before I made Moomoocachoo, my feral druid on Proudmoore to play with several friends who quit a week or so later. Moo was originally a boomkin born during WOTLK. It took me many month of play to level her and died more times than I’d care to remember. But Moo was a determined girl and one of my proudest moments in Wow was when she finally dinged 80. I had never done a dungeon, I had no idea how to gem or enchant, but dammit she was 80 and won my heart.In Cata, with the help of our guildie and friend Lurry Dean, Moo made the switch to Feral and finally found her calling at last and NEVER looked back!
Role Play secrets:
Moo hates boomkins and in PVP goes after them for sport.
Moo hates PVPers on timeless Isle and if they get near the edge will blow them over the cliff.
She and Baine Bloodhoof were in love when they were teens, but his mother couldn’t accept a druid as a daughter-in-law,
