In the eighth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we get into some guild back story, DPSing the Sha of Anger part II, rare items for “Lost and Found,” auction house PvP walls, and we begin a new gold-making challenge.

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

Story / Rant Time

  • Guild Talk
    • All hugs and kisses
    • Bitter and Salty now level 6!
  • Sha of Anger Part II: Pally DPS!
    • Is the Sha considered “raiding?”
    • Is getting tier gear considered “raiding?”
  • Molsan’s Living Steel Daily Quest
    • Why don’t raiders provide crafted materials/gear for their fellow raiders?
    • Is raiding still about showing up 100% prepared, or do raiders help each other?

More Secrets

Auction House PvP

  • Posting low to get bulk-posters to undercut way below market price
    • Example: Carp sells for 2-2.5 gold ea in various stack sizes
    • Post 1 carp @ 1 gold and wait for folks to undercut the 1g per carp price
    • Then buy all the carps!
  • Instead of making gold, do you ever try and alter the market?

Gold-Making Challenge

  • From Daniel… Pick a realm we have no chars on and a deadline (10 days /played?). Start with nothing and see who can make the most gold

Grats

  • Strumpet hits Revered with The Tillers!
  • Jean‘s Monk dings level 85!
  • Rexor’s Monk (Chip) dinged exalted with <Bitter and Salty> guild!

Mentions

  • iTunes Review from Jerome
    • Molsan and Salty, who both were on an old, retired podcast I listened to have moved on to greener pastures, and have put together a terrific show about World of Warcraft. Tips, opinions, gripes, gratz, and more on every show make me laugh, nod, disagree, and cheer, not necessarily all in that order.
    • And of course, the last three minutes of every episode are the best part.
    • Great show, guys. Keep it up!

What we are Thankful For…

Audio Submission

  • Thank you to Lil Miss Salty for the audio intro!

In the seventh World of Warcraft podcast episode, we talk about raiding, farming the old fashioned way, auction house email notifications, finding rare dresses, the Sha Crystal shuffle for Enchanters, and we learn how to pronounce Sláinte’s name correctly.

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

Pronounciation

  • How to say slaun-chow
  • Toon name origin

Raiding

  • Yep, Sláinte’s raiding again!

Farming… The Old Fashioned Way

  • Do you still farm? If so, what (besides Fishing)?
    • Rogue farming: tigers for Tiger Meat, turtles for turtle meat; leather, prismatic scales, and Magnificent Hide… and fish.

Priorities

  • If you could only make gold selling ONE item in the game… what would it be and why?

Economy

  • The Undermine Journal sends me instant messages
  • VOICE MAIL Stumpet101

Rare Finds

  • http://www.wowhead.com/item=13895
  • As of Patch 5.04 the spawn location for this item has changed. It no longer spawns at the end of the row of dresses but at the beginning of the row of dresses. In other words, it used to spawn at the bottom right of the vendor window and now it spawns at the top left. Make sure you look in the right place for it.
  • By far the rarest chestpiece to acquire is the  Formal Dangui sold by Geenia Sunshadow in Moonglade. It’s rumored that it respawns every two months.

VOICE MAIL Jeppy

Enchanting

  • Adding Sha Crystal crafting to MoP Ore Shuffle
  • Jewelcrafting Jewelry for Disenchanting
    • Use Macro to disenchant MoP jewelry:
      • /cast Disenchant
      • /use item:83793
      • /use item:83794

    • Listening to Molsan and Salty(I cannot spell, Salancha) talk about WoW brings me back to the good ol days of logging in the hours upon hours in WoW! I enjoyed the relationships I found in WoW and listening to them chat about fishing, and farming, and UI’s, and questing brings back great memories. These two people know the game and bring to the listener wonderful insight and information. They are entertaining and the hour just flies by. The bloopers at the end are also pretty funny. So… if you’re interested in a new podcast about WoW, the Bitter and Salty podcast is a Must Subscribe! Keep up the great work! Tarqq
