In the one hundredth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we explain the differences between Personal, Guild, and Master loot, and decide to roll need instead, we determine the best system for finding a group in-game for questing and raiding, we wonder if it’s worth leveling all characters to 100 before Legion, including bank alts, we propose all new challenges for Legion, and agree to complete several of them, we update the community on the successful raid progression of the Bitter and Salty raid team, we discuss Blizzard’s intentions for creating Warcraft content outside of the World of Warcraft, we review methods for Canadian gold-making using custom TradeSkillMaster groups, and we decide to get everyone a Yak mount.

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

Guild Loot/Master Loot/Personal Loot

Best Method to Find a Group

  • In-game group finder?
  • Battle.net status spam?
  • Custom guild channel?

Before Legion Leveling

  • Is it worth it to level all alts to 100 before Legion?
  • Because of lack of character slots, leveling banker… got stuck without a Hearthstone

Voicemail – Dominia’s Favorite Moments

Legion Challenges???

  • First to 110?
  • Level 1 goblin bank alt and 50K gold in one month
  • Actually completing a challenge?
  • Make noodle carts for Illidan

Bitter and Salty Raid Team

  • Firelands full clear with mount
  • Heroic Bastion of Twilight… Sinestra was tricky… needed a guide
  • Heroic Dragon Soul… Ultraxion 25-man solo with drums and flask
  • How much can one solo? Pandaria raids?

Warcraft Becoming More than World of Warcraft

  • Harbingers, comics, videos, movies… what about the game itself?

Voicemail – Celia from Scenarios

Gold Making with Canadians

Transmog/Appearances

Yak Mount

  • The Yak mount is pretty much essential for WoW now
  • How do we get everyone a Yak mount?

Ask Bitter and Salty

In the ninety-ninth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we bathe ourselves in the glory of accurately predicting the pre-Legion patch release date, we explain exactly what will happen to Garrisons before Legion, and decide whether or not it will burn and drown in the Shipyards, we fix everyone’s bank storage problems by mailing each other Hexweave Bags and vendoring all the things, we declare that appearance unlocking and the changes to wardrobe and transmogrification are clearly the best things ever, we love and hate everything you can and can’t do with the Legion bind-on-pick-up crafting reagent, Blood of Sargeras, and we ask that you bring not one, but two bags, so you can mix it up this year at Blizzcon.

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

Pre-Legion Patch

  • 7/19! Salty was right!!

What Exactly is Going to Happen to the Garrison

  • Disappear? Burn to the ground? Submerged somehow by your Shipyard?
  • The trader in your Garrison’s Trading Post will no longer sell the bags of gold for blood or garrison supplies

How to Fix Bank Problems

  • Hexweave Bags
  • There will be no bigger bags added to Tailoring in Legion
  • 24-slot bags will be easy to make

Wardrobe Changes

  • Appearance unlocking!
  • Where to find a missing appearance!
  • Improved Transmog interface with a preview!
  • Save looks as outfits!
  • Outfits by spec!
  • Transmog weapon enchants!

What is Blood of Sargeras?

  • Q&A with Senior Game Designer Paul Kubit (Professions lead)
  • Measure of “a measure of how much you are playing the game”
  • Used for crafting
  • Obliterum… an item obtained at max level that increases iLevel of gear. The application of Obliterum will use Blood of Sargareas
  • Obliterum forge can increase iLevel to 850
  • Can’t unbind it… using it as a measuring tool… a protection for those with a lot of gold from just buying “power”
  • Can’t be BoA either… Don’t want players to rely on alts… although, Blizzard loves alts? Do you think they do or don’t?
  • You can obliterate anything into… Obliterum

Suggestions for Pre-Patch Pre-Legion Day One

  • Sell everything

Random Stuffs Before the Patch

  • Outland Raiding for Full Crystalforge Set
  • Chasing Outland Rares
  • Elemental Plateau Farming for Air stuffs
  • Getting factions/rep grinds done… Argent Dawn

THERE IS A FISHING ARTIFACT

  • WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN???1!?

Salty Tip for Blizzcon 2016

  • Bring two bags and switch it up

In the ninety-third World of Warcraft podcast episode, we cover the state of professions in the game so far and consider the possibility that Blizzard may be eliminating professions altogether, we ask if Ore is broken and speculate on when it will be nerfed to bring it in line with other gathered materials, we analyze the many focuses of the expansion to determine what is the real gameplay in Warlords of Draenor, we research which profession is making the most gold, we debate the Personal Loot versus the Need/Greed loot system, and we wish everyone a happy 10th Anniversary of World of Warcraft.

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

Professions SO FAR

Drop all gathering professions?

Lack of balance between ore, leather, and herbs

Is ore “broken?” Good time to buy and stockpile?

Fish Shack Dailies

ENCHANT SHACK IS THE GREATEST EVVVVAAAAA!!!!!!

What is REAL WoW gameplay?

Is it questing? Dungeons? Garrisons?!?

A significant portion of gameplay is now sunk into Garrisons

More Garrison addons help (Master Plan and Garrison Mission Manager)

Making Gold in WoD

Inscription is D2M, but OH WAIT

From “Aarondf” on the Consortium forums:

“MANY people didn’t realize that you don’t need to wait for the Darkmoon Faire this expansion AND the fact that the Inscription decks have different names once transformed into the trinkets, I have made a killing on direct trinket sales. Many scribes (and I mean almost all) didn’t realize this and just posted their cards individually for sale, not thinking they could make decks of their own, or trading/waiting to complete their own.“

From Geers on the Consortium forums:

“gold making has been dominated by inscription so far this xpac”

http://stormspire.net/general-discussion/15895-whats-your-wod-gold-making-progress-report-so-far.html

Molten Core

YOU MUST RUSH TO 100, THEN GEAR TO 615.

LIMITED TIME.

Meh…

Happy 10th Anniversary

How do you delete the Corgi pet email?!?

Dungeon Loot Changes

From Rygarius:

We now have a hotfix in the works that will do two things:

  • The default loot system for Dungeon Finder groups will once again be Personal, instead of Need Before Greed. Full premade groups that prefer the latter system will be able to select it manually, as always.
  • We’re increasing loot yield from the final boss of each dungeon.
    • With Personal loot active, each player in a group will now always receive an item from the final boss.
    • With Need Before Greed active, the boss will now drop 3 items to be shared among the group as desired, up from 2 previously.

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.
