In the thirty-eighth World of Warcraft podcast episode, the remote auction house is down and we don’t know what to do, we dislike change and thus are scared of TradeSkillMaster 2.0, we ask that the LFR bashing stop once and for all, we announce that Major Payne is no more, we add more Molsan Methods and a new gold-making tip, we clarify a few housekeeping items regarding our upcoming leveling challenge, and we address the Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft question: What is your favorite profession.
Bitter and Salty is brought to you weekly by Molsan and Sláinte.

Pet Battle Email from Kori from Aerie Peak – US <Convert to Raid>
I was thinking about the tweet I sent Slainte and thought maybe I should provide more info.
Here is my guide to getting your first lvl 25 pet fairly quickish.
Capture an Arcane Eye or few from outside Karazhan. These pets are a single pet fight around lvl 17. You should be able to take them out with around lvl 8-10 pets. It is 3 to 1 after all.
Get the blues if you can, else greens work just fine.
if you can’t find a green, grab a white or grey and upgrade them to green by paying 1000 justice points to the justice point vendor standing on the Temple of Niuzao
Battle lvl 20-21 pets. Capture any blues or greens you can. (or make them with JP stones) Swap out your team to the higher pets, and then fight any pets at least 3 levels higher then your own. Wild pets at this level lose 2 levels of experience when caught, so this trick will only take you up to around level 22-23 pets. Find a good spot with lots of pets in pandaria, (the pools in the vale work well, for example) and battle your way to 25.
All of the power level guides I’ve found assume you at least 1 or 2 lvl 25 pets. This is the quickest way I know to get that first 25.

Will more/extra gold help us level faster?
Will need to utilize a 2nd account. Is that allowed?
Can we have alts… specifically bank alts?
TWoWoW Week 17 – Favorite Profession
Sláinte – Fishing… Like Duh
Molsan – Enchanting
Baloku, Earthen Ring
Hey guys, great show.
As a new listener I’ve only heard a few episodes, but Bitter and Salty is already at the top of my playlist.
I’m also new to WoW, relatively, having started at the end of Cata, so I’m still spending most of my time catching up and experiencing WoW with a first time beginner’s mind.
You’ll probably talk about pet battles again and for when you do I’d like to point out that Mr. Pinchy is freakin’ awesome! Molsan, Fish up a Mr. Pinchy! Slainte, he’s just waiting to be the captain of your team.
For the seventeenth week in the World of Warcraft, how could it be anything other than fishing? Hooray for Mr. Pinchy! ‘nuf said, eh?
I missed the discounted character transfer weekend, and honestly I’m too cheap to have paid for a character transfer anyway. However, I took a look at the Bitter and Salty’s “Stay Classy” progress and rolled a goblin mage on Earthen Ring. If you’d like to toss me a guild invite, I’d love to join.
P.S. Aquoavo, Karazhan, Rogue, Howling Fjord, Dire Maul, Harrison Jones in Grizzly Hills, Remember the Sunwell, PvE, For the Horde?, Flameward Hipogryph, Noblegarden Gearset, What a Long Strange Trip it’s Been, Magister’s Terrace, Stratholme, Bartender, The Violet Hold, and Fishing! Hooray for Mr. Pinchy!
Thought I’d send an email for Week 17 of 30 Weeks of WoW: favorite profession. Too much to fit in a Tweet, and I know how much Salty Sláinte loves reading emails.
My favorite profession in WoW has nothing to do with what is most beneficial for my class, and in point of fact, I have a love/hate relationship with this profession. It’s weird and wacky, it’s Engineering.
First, why I love it: there are so many fun, cool, useful items to make. From the chopper to the roflcopter, belt tinkers, bombs, trinkets, guns, goggles, gadgets, thingamabobs, and doohickeys, Engineering has loads of awesome toys to play with.
Why I hate it: Parts. All the freaking weird little parts you have to make BEFORE you can make the item. A framework, a tube, blasting powders, triggers, struts, contacts, a handful of nuts… err, I mean bolts. It’s an organizational nightmare converting raw mats to parts, parts to an item.
To me, though, the rewards outweigh the annoyance of constructing the item. I love blasting open a lockbox or having a belt tinker that projects a “cardboard” version of me to draw aggro. And don’t get me started on how much I adore my roflcopter!
I don’t think I have to tell you fellas how much I love the show and look forward to it every week, but I’ll tell ya again anyways!
Ciao for now!
Fishing! Nah, I just said that to maintain the ‘separated from Slainte at birth’ legend.
Inscription! Nah, I just said that coz Molsans Milling Macro is da bomb.
Cooking! Nah, I just said that so I’d have an excuse to say “rep with ma’ besties”
For the longest time, Jewelcrafting was my favourite profession. The reason was a combination of factors including that it was new, it was a good gold earner, there was plenty of opportunity to help guildies that didnt have the right cuts, and it had some pretty good JC-only perks. It’s kind of fallen out of favour with me this expansion, mostly because I think the first three of that list no longer really applies as much as it used to.
So I’m going to cheat and say my favourite profession is mining-alchemy-blacksmithing. There’s other combinations, but that’s currently my favourite. As an altoholic, there’s nothing more fulfilling than mining your own ore, smelting it, getting your alchemist to trasmute into trillium and living steel, then having your blacksmith make a super useful belt buckle or the like.
Stay professiony San Diego
TWoWoW Week 18 – Best and worst thing about World of Warcraft
Really enjoying the podcast – this is my first listen.
ElvUI and other bag modes – if you go into the configuration for elvUI (/elvUI), you can go to bags and disable the bag addon in ElvUI.
This didn’t affect my OneBag installation at all – just kept me from displaying 4 bags at the bank!
I’m going to listen to this tonight while playing because you touch on a lot of relevant topics to me, but without listening, I’d say that dps is about spell rotation, that can end up with a lot of button hitting when the going gets tough. If it’s possible to soulstone a boss well I have possible done that, as well as hitting and equipping my fishing rod out of confusion, or perhaps building a cooking fire.
The Warlock noob. Hmm 5 years playing one and I’m an expert at questing, but put me in a raid and I’m like a toddler on a day out with the grown ups.
As for elvUI. I hated it at first and changed back to Blizzards default, but for me elvUI grows on you, until you just can’t do without it.
Looking forward to having a listen.
