In the sixty-eighth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we remember our Herald of the Titans run where we slayed Algalon, took all the loot, and watched all the RP, we discuss the future of HotT and our plans for keeping the raid going for everyone in the guild, we reflect on the journey to completing our goal and the many contributions that our fellow raid and guild mates made to achieve our success, we deny all reports that the expansion is near and question why anyone would waste the level 90 character boost on a Druid, oh and there’s love in the air. again.

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

In the eighteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we are not panicking about Ghost Iron Ore and the changes to leveling Blacksmithing in 5.2, we buy Battle Pets through the RMAH, we figure out that JCs can make their own Primal Diamonds, we discuss auction house ethics when someone mistakenly lists an item too low, we walk you through using a script to retrieve item IDs from Wowhead, and we realize that it’s time to get organized.

The Great Ghost Iron Ore Debacle of 2013

  • Buy and Hold? Who cares; buy and prospect? Panic?!?
  • Blacksmith Leveling Kits
    • What are leveling kits?
      • Leveling a profession from 1-600

Battle Pets Now Listed in the RMAH

  • YES! Now what? Available for scanning yet?

Call from Strumpet – Pet Battle Update

Professions

  • Jewelcrafting
    • Design: Primal Diamond
      • Takes 5 of each uncommon MoP gems and 1 Spirit of Harmony
      • JCs can make use of the SoHs, but if you have an xMute Alchemist, is this better?

Noob Tip

Marketplace Ethics

  • Email from Postblue (night elf hunter, is there any other kind of hunter?)
    • “I have a question, when you find a market mistake I.E. is it ethical to proceed with flipping the item.  I found and item posted for 1k that regularly sells for 25-30k and was very excited.  The person that made the mistake contacted me in game and explained he simply posted it wrong. He then proceeded to offer me 2K for it back which I thought was low.  After a little banter I declined to return it to him because I felt it was his responsibility and not mine to post his auctions right. What do you think?”

How to Setup Wowuction Broker with Items from Wowhead

__rows = $("#lv-items table tbody tr");

__itemids = "";
__rows.each(function() {
__cells = $(this).children("td");
__itemname = $(__cells[2]).find("a").text();
__itemlink = $(__cells[2]).find("a").attr("href");
__itemids += __itemlink.substr(6)+",";
});
__newOutputrow = $("<div />");
__newOutputrow.text(__itemids.substr(0,__itemids.length-1));
__newOutputrow.appendTo("body");
  • Copy and paste comma-separated list into Wowuction and categorize your items by naming the list (i.e. “Herald of the Titans BoEs”)
  • Update prices on broker sheet and enable email notification

Hey, just listened to episode 16 and 17. figured molsen felt like the tank should be geared first and I totally agree.

But Your plan for the gearing is not optimized so after giving it a fast thought I came up with a easy suggestion.

you would need the best gear on all Your 10 level 80s.

hopefully you are not stacking a class so just split up the group in half, 5 80s with diffrent needs of loot and the other half bring their level 90 and boosts you though it all for gear.

(like at freya you leave the 80s at the middle circle, run inn with the 5 90s and zerg her and out. if you run by water with strider you can manage to pull like zero adds)

after the run is Complete, you swap. the next group of 80s and the 5 90s.

Lately Ive been doing ulduar 10 for the proto drake Mount, we was a monk winder Walker 90 and a hunter 90 survival 90. struggeled only with yogg  +1 guardian =)

I dont know if it tracks flasks or you allready know but cata flasks only require leve 80 =) as the MoP flasks require level 85 (great for leveling)

I hope this is readable and that you get my point =)

Friendly regards from a huge Norwegian bitter and salty fan =)

In the twelfth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we start the new Dominance Offensive dailies and wonder at the mystery that is the Brawler’s Guild. We break down a simple method using Jewelcrafting and Alchemy to consistently make gold. We continue the Spirit of Harmony debate and share a mote of harmony farming spot. Totals for week four of our gold-making challenge are revealed. And we honor a fallen hero, Borgaz, and give thanks to the positive influence he left on our community.

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

Dominance Offensive

  • While 5.1 only introduces two new factions, Operation: Shieldwall and Dominance Offensive, they’ve got a lot of content attached to them–World PvP, rare spawns, daily quests, and achievements.
  • Krasarang Wilds
    • Meet the Scout; automatically shows up as a quest when you are in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. From there, you complete The Might of the Warchief with Garrosh… or Varian if you are Alliance.
    • More dailies
  • Deadly cave of mobs!
    • Inside the Lion’s Landing Quarry
  • Rare NPCs
    • There are three rare spawns Horde players can kill in Lion’s Landing that have a chance to drop trinkets and Brawler’s Guild Invitations, as well as many  Lion’s Landing/Domination Point Commission. Killing all three rewards  I’m In Your Base, Killing Your Dudes.
  • Black Prince Rep
  • Advances MoP storyline


Why do I need to get into Brawler’s Guild?

  • Rep Grind?
    • Salty doesn’t know
  • Brawler’s Guild invite is account wide
    • Can get at BMAH, but auctions end at night
    • Can get on regular AH, but avg. price is about 50% higher than BMAH

RIP Borgaz

  • We remember…
    • Sláinte
    • Molsan
    • Grimm

 Borgaz was such a great man. I first met him when he joined our old raid team Floor Tanks in Wrath. He was this amazing hunter that completely tied our team together, always knew what to do, always had what you needed, and always always always gave the shirt off his back to anyone who asked for a spare button, and refused any compensation. We were shocked as a team when we found out he had only been playing the game for less than a year and had never raided when he joined the team, because he played like he’d played the game from day one.

We always got a huge chuckle out of the way he would often mispronounce the names of things in WoW. Those of us from that team still call Orgrimmar, “Orjimmer” :P

Borgaz was with me for the final handful of group quests I needed in Wrath to get my Loremaster title. He spent a good hour with me going all over Icecrown to get it done, and was just thrilled that he got to be a part of me getting the achievement. To this day that night was one of my favorite times of the 7 years I’ve played this game.

Of anyone I’ve ever met in this game, Borgaz was to me the ultimate example of class and kindness. If there was ever a person in AIE who deserved to be Guildie of the Moment, it was him. I’m going to miss him greatly. I’m sending all my well-wishes, prayers, and love to his family. If they are anything like him, they are great, great people.

    • Are we starting a raid team?


Email from Grizzleflotz
I’m a BC baby, new to the podcast community and your show is on my short list of favorites.  You manage to provide excellent information whilst remaining topical and entertaining.  It’s almost tempted me to join the Bitter and Salty guild.  I’ve more than tripled my gold earning capacity since listening and I feel I’ve become a more savvy money manager, so thanks for that.

One question though:  Though there are many items that fluctuate wildly in price throughout an expansion (mats, transmog items, etc.) are there any items that maintain a fairly stable value throughout and are therefore worth relying on for a consistent profit?  There is a seller on my server who farms Scritch for the Hozen Peace Pipes and always lists them for 5k.  I routinely snatch them up and list them for 8-10k and they have always sold–not immediately, but I’ve learned to be patient.  Will the market be renewed with new factions, or did the commendations hurt the market irreparably?  What about craftable pvp items and epics going forward?  It seems like there is a steady influx of new players and alts leveling, even though the main “new expansion rush” is over.

Thanks again for the immensely entertaining show!

–Grizzleflotz AIE

Jewelcrafting and Alchemy

  • Taking lessons learned from gold-making challenge and simplifying my routines
  • Transmute w/ Jewelcrafting + TSM = WIN
  • Multiple layers for transmute procs using Golden Lotus
  • Also looking at Cata gem market and Jasper Ring (level 79 twinks)
  • Prospecting Pyrite Ore; cheaper and more available than Obsidium and Elementium
  • Salty is SOOO meta

Spirit of Harmony: BoE vs. BoP vs. BoA

  • @JetrixAdune Question: If Spirits/motes of Harmony become BOA. For you believe this will affect the mat market more then currently?
  • Follow up: would you also anticipate a surge in the amount of crafted items whose patterns are bought with Spirits?

Gold-Making Tip

  • Call from Plastic Duck from Kilrogg
    • Happy Birthday Jeffery
    • Cave in Kun Lai Summit
