In the thirty-first World of Warcraft podcast episode, we visit the Isle of Thunder for Lightning Steel, we realize that nobody wants healers in scenarios, we wonder about gold-making etiquette when buying an item from a guild member, we obsess over the Two of Nobles, while everyone else obsesses over mounts for the Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft, we discuss the Loremaster achievement progress, and we work with the Tillers to dig up some Dark Soil.

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

Week 10 #TWoWoW – Favorite Mount
Sláinte: Time-Lost-Proto-Drake

Hey Guys,

My favorite mount is the Imperial Quilen, it looks so epic and regal. I think the wings are my favorite!

Strumpet
I said in my plea for help that I would send a tweet with my week 10 answer, but then people would see it, and it would be, like: SPOILER! So email it is.

My favorite mount? Before Christmas, I would have said my Onyx Netherdrake – cause it’s cool and hot and classy, but my answers changed after Christmas.

Ground mount: Ruby Panther (I know it isn’t technically a ground mount, because it can fly, but it looks stupid when it flies, so I try to only use it for ground. Jeppy gave me this for Christmas, and I love it!

Flying mount: My Blazing Hippogryph. I saw this on the Trading Card game loot site, and put it on my wishlist JUST IN CASE. Although my family never gets me anything from my wishlist. Anyway, to my surprise, my cats (with the help of Mr. Strumpet) gave it to me for Christmas last year. I LOVE it!!!

Mwah mwah

Grimm
Hey guys, it’s Grimm checking in to tell you about my favorite mount in WoW. I’d have to say that my favorite is the Frostwolf, partly because I’ve always liked wolves and love the look of the white wolf in particular, and in game find them to be one of the few mounts that Tauren look decent on, and partly because I worked so hard to get it. You see, back in my day, to get a Frostwolf mount you had to run an insane amount of Alterac Valley to earn the tokens to buy it. I don’t remember the exact amount, but I spent the better part of a month doing nothing but chain running AV just to get this mount. But to me it was worth it, and it continues to be one of about 3 land mounts that I still use out of the dozens I have collected.

Until next time

@lucasmines the talbuk mounts from Nagrand! I always use my silver or cobalt war talbuks when stuck on the ground

@NevAHAddict fav ground mount-Kodo for my gnome but I use the Headless Horseman’s one most of the time, flying has to be Netherwing Drake

@CSprandel My fav mount still to this day is my Netherdrake. Over a month of dailies on a PVP server. Its a testament to persistence.

Farli@TheOvercut
@bitterandsalty Ghastly Charger! Love pulling it out and admiring in low level BG’s while teammates try to complete “objectives” *cackle*

@wicked1281 Headless horseman mount took 3 years of 5+ toons for it to drop on an alt I don’t play. Accountwide mounts FTW!!!!!!

@Austduskwing Celestial Steed. Because it was the only mount many of my alts could afford back before account shared mounts. #Sparklepony

@LegendOfDeepzz my blood bathed frost brood vanquisher from wrath because has the coolest /mountspecial ever

@Moogyver Without a doubt, my Turbo-charged flying machine. At least until I one day get my Mimirons Head. Oh yes… it will be mine.

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.
