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.
