In the sixty-sixth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we fail miserably at Herald of the Titans and complain about all the things we did wrong, we commit ourselves to properly preparing for the next raid by leveling Cooking to make Seafood Manifiques, we ask all the pet battle and pet collecting questions you could ever want or stand to listen to including what it means to be a true collector, we level more alts to help other guilds Stay Classy, and we blow our minds by resetting all of the events of the Cataclysm.

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

In the fifty-fifth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we noodle about the scroll behind the Sha of Doubt and the failure of our weekly challenge, we admit that we can’t play the game without guides, addons, and cookbooks, Sláinte enrages when thinking about the Horse Man’s mount and Hallow’s End, Molsan’s Mage dings 90 while mousewheeling candy buckets, we setup new guild ranks and guild bank repair permissions and watch our gold slowly drift away, we further speculate about the next WoW expansion and why we will and will not support Vol’jin in the Emerald Dream, and we put everyone on high alert and ask that you wash your hands and avoid the Occulus at Blizzcon.

Hi,

Molsan and Dangui,

Here are a few things that happened this week in WoW.

* I finally hit 10,000 achievement points on my account.

* I picked up a few more Secrets of the Empire and have 9 more to go.

Oh yeah – and thank you for the guild promotion and bank repairs.

See you in game.

Blinkphase

Hey this is the misspelling @blinkphase from the twitters I play a ret/prot space goat pally on ysondre and was just wondering what u guys thought about the idea of an expansion in the future being in the afterlife so Idk maybe you go visit a goblin/ gnome NPC and they give you a device that allows you to shift over to the spirit realm and enemies of old are there trying to make their way back to our realm. Would love to hear yalls thoughts on this take care love the show

PS LONG LIVE THE ALLIANCE !!

Dear Bitter and Salty,

Jean Bees and I were talking about my Darkspear Revolutionary title, and how I was thinking of race-changing my main to Troll because it seemed more thematically appropriate given the fallout from Vol’jin’s Rebellion. This led, naturally, into a discussion of Salty’s insistence that Vol’jin is NOT his warchief, and the back-and-forth that often shows up both in the show and in the aftershow comments.

So what’s the deal here? Does Salty *really* not support Vol’jin in his quest to unseat Garrosh? Do either or both of you actually believe that Garrosh is a better warchief than Vol’jin (or, really, anyone else)? If not Vol’jin, who would you (plural) like to see as the Warchief of the Horde (and no, Jaina Proudmoore doesn’t count)?

I look forward to hearing more about this subject on the next episode of Bitter and Salty.

Vol’jin Lives,

Ghraycee of Wowcoholics Anonymous, Proudmoore

Guess who has a priest with two thumbs and a flight path to Pandaria?

this guy!

Thanks to some help from +Jean Bees  (and a whack of XP from Hallow’s End), I was able to get my priest, Arkuchimuya, up to 85 tonight.

Huh. I may actually end up with a level 90 Alt before the end of this expansion!

For those of us who don’t power-level alts, what do +Bitter and Salty – A World of Warcraft Podcast recommend as a leveling strategy?

In the sixteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we discuss raiding in MoP, but also going back to Ulduar. We learn how to switch talents on the fly and what to do with guild bank tabs. We are relieved to be making gold without stress by buying transmog gear and crafting belt buckles, and we finally determine that we’re just a couple of tillering noobs.

In the eleventh World of Warcraft podcast episode, we ask if it’s worth it to achieve max level cooking, the impact to the change to Redbelly Mandarin pools with patch 5.1, the Potion of Luck and is it worth crafting and using, synchronizing addons for multiple computers, and the week 3 update to our gold-making challenge.

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

Pandaria Cooking

  • Why train, when its cheaper to buy in AH.
  • Is there a need for Non-Raiders?

Fishing

  • Change to Redbelly Mandarin pools in Jade Forest
    • https://theunderminejournal.com/item.php?item=74860
    • Patch 5.1 removed pools of Redbelly Mandarin from the Jade Forest
    • Overall, price spiked to about 14g each after the patch, now down to about 11-13g (range higher on EU realms: 12g-23g ea avg price)
    • Patch was released on 11/27, and quantity took a dive and keeps falling
    • Can now be found only in Townlong Steppes (Inland, and not many locations) or in Vale of Eternal Blossoms (but pools are shared with two other types)
    • Find one of the spawn locations and fish in open water (1/3 drop rate for RBM)

Alchemy
@Grozlok@bitterandsalty @Molsan What happened to Potion of Luck? It’s gone missing from the Undermine Journal.

@walkstweets@SaltySlainte @bitterandsalty No, not really. Cost of mats is not equal to the return.

Are Potions of Luck worth using?

  • Greater Potion of luck changed to Potion of Luck in 5.1
  • Crafted with one Golden Lotus (down from three)
