In the fifty-second World of Warcraft podcast episode, we walk the tightrope on the Timeless Isle for coin-filled chests and disappointment, Molsan’s Shaman dings 90 and gears up for Throne of Thunder in about an hour, we speculate over future patches and what Blizzard can do to change how content is delivered in the next expansion, we buy all the things from the auction house using a macro, Sláinte wants to keep the gold in the guild bank all for himself instead of using it for repairs… and still dislikes Murloc costumes, we wonder what we’ve learned from our Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft and plan ahead for future weekly challenges, and we switch markets to make more gold so we can spend even more gold on items like the Ethereal Soul Trader.
Was the Timeless Isle a Mistake?
Is it boring?
Tightrope Walking is for winners only
Shaman is 90
From dinging 90 to ToT… in about an hour
… and my DPS is at the bottom of the meters
Added an AoE macro so I will be ready for next time

I use this to buy herbs “in bulk” below my max price.
Guild Bank Management
What should we do with the gold?
Our current cash flow (aside from generous donations) only covers repairs for two individuals running LFR.
Guild Bank Cleaning
We should discuss plans to clean out the guild bank in preparation for 6.0.

This is why I make and save gold… what are some big ticket items you’d spend your gold on besides Mimron’s Head?

No TWoWoW so now what?
Sláinte is totally wrong about Murloc costumes

Is it really over already? I’ll miss the 30 Weeks segment, but can’t wait to hear whatever you guys come up with next.
I’m answering two weeks at the same time, because I missed Week 26 and /played time and mains seem interrelated to me.
My total /played time between all my existing toons on all servers came in around 344 days. My first main, however, isn’t even included in this number. I deleted her a while back. I know, I can scarcely believe it myself. Onoma, Tauren hunter, was my first Horde character and my first max level character. I leveled her to 60 in Vanilla, and I still remember how excited I was to take her through the Dark Portal for the first time. That’s gotta be like 50 or 60 lost days of playtime, right?
Anyway, for most of BC and the beginning of Wrath, my main was my rogue, Marrsha. She had a name change and a server change along the way, and she was my first raiding toon. I liked sneaking around and pickpocketing and stabbing things. My played time on Marrsha is 70 days.
At some point during early Wrath, I went back and picked up an old abandoned priest alt. Suddenly, I was in love! I was in love with standing back and casting and being able to see what was going on. I was in love with healing. I leveled her up and she quickly became my new raiding toon–my new raid team needed a healer, so I specced Sindei Disc/Holy and she became my new main. She has been my main ever since, and she too, has about 70 days of playtime.
When I quit playing WoW, I eventually came back because I missed Sindei. When I got a FigurePrint for my birthday, it was Sindei who got the honors. I prioritized Sindei’s Darkspear Revolutionary title because, in my mind, Sindei is proud to be a Darkspear and to support and aid Vol’jin.
I admit, these days I find myself playing my Forsaken warlock Shirlea quite a bit. I have just 8 days /played on Shirlea, but she is my current raiding toon and is better geared than Sindei at this point. I even recently considered whether I should move her to the top of my character selection screen… but no. Shirlea may be most played lately, but she is still not my main. Shirlea may be the main of the moment, but Sindei is my main: the character I always go back to, the one who brought me back to the game, the one I love the best.
Thanks for a great 30 weeks, guys!
What did we learn?
What will we do in its place? Bring back Weekly Challenge? Spin the Achievement Roulette wheel?!?

@bitterandsalty and I always have to urge to switch back. Having them just as alts don't do them justice. Love the show

@bitterandsalty Woot! Zen Master Fisherman! First time I've ever had max level fishing on a toon!
