In the eighty-second World of Warcraft podcast episode, our friends and family that is the Bitter and Salty guild work together to finally reach the Stay Classy guild achievement, we attend Sunday Scholomance with some help from BarovHelper only to fail once again on the last boss, we remove even more things from the game including dual spec, we recommend running Tol Barad for honor, leather, and mounts, we wonder what raiders do for fun when they’ve moved far beyond LFR, and we get all upset because Blizzard is taking our flying mounts away only to give them right back to us in Warlords of Draenor.

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

We are Staying Classy

Guild Achievement unlocked!

Which dailies do you run for Valor?

TOL BA RAD

What to do when you’re too good for LFR

Level alts and… that’s it?

In the thirty-second World of Warcraft podcast episode, we catch up on our Loremaster progress and talk about things we like and dislike about the old zones, we wonder how we can make our weekly guild mount runs more fun and efficient, we continue to spy on each other at the auction house, we talk outfits of all kinds for our thirty weeks of World of Warcraft, and we help out a lazy, profession-less Mage.

Hey guys,

As far as week 11 goes. I don’t really have a favorite outfit. I like a couple of pieces that could make a cool outfit but I am generally too lazy to transmog stuff. I really like the new tier 15 pieces, but that’s pretty much all I’ve got

Twitter

@benredington Favorite gear, Tier 3 Dreadnaught’s Battlegear for a Warrior. Only obtainable via BMAH

@GrimmAIE favorite gear set? The t15 druid set. It’s a Sleepy Hollow tree with a giant spider in it! Looks like a druid ate a warlock.

#TWoWoW Week 12 – Your proudest moment/achievement?

Also, if your trying to become best friendlys with the tiller squad. Mouse over their xp tab it will tell you what item they like as well as what FOOD they like. IF you have 5 foods that they like in your bags when you talk to them, then they will give you a food turn in quest for about 2000 rep with them. But the quest is only available once a day and you need the food in your bags.

Love the show.

Week 10 #TWoWoW – Favorite Mount

Hey Guys,

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

~Jellad – CTR – Aerie Peak

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

@Mominatrix75 my 2012 dodge charger! Oh you mean in wow…my pretty ruby panther.

@ladiciuswarrior toss up between rivendares charger and ashes of al’ar since I got them both on my first attempt :)

@Kenichan Big bird! Er I mean the one that drops in heroic Sekketh Halls xD

@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 nineteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, love is in the air and we’re hot for some love token grinding, we review the 5.2 valor point reset and Elder Charm changes, we explain the upcoming changes to Fishing and break down pool migrations, we reveal more Tiller tips, and we deliver breaking news that valor points actually won’t reset after all.

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

Love is in the Air!

The Valor/Justice Point System and 5.2 Changes…

  • Valor/Justice and Conquest/Honor Resets
    • “With 5.2 we won’t be changing current Valor items to cost Justice, but they will be much cheaper (discounts from 50-75% off their current costs). You’ll need to acquire Valor after the patch is released to buy pieces for their discounted rate, or to buy the new 5.2 Valor items, but we’re also introducing new items to spend your Justice on, including heirlooms and Pet Battle stones.”
  • Elder/Lesser Charms
    • “While Charms won’t be converted, Lesser Charms of Good Fortune will no longer be used to purchase Elder Charms in patch 5.2. Instead Lesser Charms will purchase Mogu Runes of Fate. They’ll be purchasable in the same way; once a week, 90 Lesser Charms can be converted to 3 Mogu Runes of Fate via a quest in your faction’s Shrine. Mogu Runes of Fate will be usable for bonus rolls on 5.2 raid and world bosses only. Elder Charms will continue to be used for bonus rolls on 5.0 raids and world bosses, and will now be acquired as item drops by killing enemies in the new 5.2 Thundering Isle outdoor zone.”
    • http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/blog/7189123/52_Currency_Conversions-06_02_2013
  • Grimm fighting it out with Bashiok on Twitter

OH WAIT… THANKS, ZARHYM!

  • After reading your feedback and locking ourselves in dim, florescent-lit rooms for much deliberation, we have decided that we are NOT going to convert Valor to Justice and Justice to gold when 5.2 ships.
  • In addition, we’re making a change to ensure that there are some gear rewards available via the Kirin Tor Offensive and Sunreaver Onslaught, the two new factions with which players can earn reputation in 5.2 without raiding. The patch was shaping up to be a real challenge for players who don’t like raiding (including LFR), as our original design meant that no new Valor rewards would be available to them without needing to run Throne of Thunder. You can expect to see the Valor rewards on the Kirin Tor Offensive and Sunreaver Onslaught quartermasters updated on the 5.2 public test realms in the near future. These rewards are ilevel 496 and will only accommodate a few slots, as they aren’t intended to be very attractive to raiders (including those running LFR), but should give non-raiders something to shoot for in 5.2.

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.
