In the fifty-ninth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we finally tick off all of our boxes and correct our in-game combat lag, we kick off our Thirty Weeks of Warlords of Draw-nor with an in-depth discussion about Garrisons and Followers, Molsan’s monk dings 90 without being able to move to the left, and Sláinte is wrong about Warlords being free.

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

Combat Lag Saga

Tried SoO and had minimal/typical lag

Skada – Reduced number of segments to keep from 10 to 5

Right-clicked the Combat Log tab and unchecked all of the boxes

Defeated the iron scorpion looking thing then died to trash. Many times.

TWoWoD – Garrisons and Followers

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/11502044

Sláinte

Farming mats will be nice.

Send followers out to raid will be awesome, although I don’t know for how long.

Novelty will prob fade after 5-6 months. Unless constant changes are made.

DAILY follower task = New Daily Grind.

Name my followers after Cities I have visited, or Whiskeys I like.

Molsan

Any impact on the economy?

How will the change gameplay?

How will this affect the environment?

“as you travel through Draenor, you’ll see your Garrison looming on the horizon”

Hello darlings!!

Garrisons kinda sound like a pain in the booty…I mean, maybe I’m just lazy, but I don’t want to have to do what it sounds like I’m going to have to do in order to have my garrison.  And what it sounds like is that you’re getting it because there’s a war, and so you have to do all this stuff to raise your own “army” to fight that war.  Ugh…what I’m hearing is “work work work.”  I just want a place to put Onyxia’s head, plant some melons, and watch some Azeroth Days of Our Lives…is that so much to ask??  On the bright side, it sounds like it has fishing!  =D  And the followers…I wonder if they’re taking the SWTOR approach…send your “follower” off to fetch this or that and it costs x-amount of gold for them to fetch the better stuff, and you have to level that up as well…?  It’ll be interesting for sure, and despite all my griping I’m sure I’ll love it like everything else…hehehe.

Anywho, I hope you’re both doing great!

Garrisons, Schmarrisons.

I don’t need no stinking Garrisons.

Immediate thought: the fear it will take up too much of my time in-game.

But it’s an interesting idea and looks to be well implemented, a swell little mini-game.

I want to play it on a tablet more so, then build up clever forces and defenses and fight other players’ garrisons like all my students do on their iPhones with Clash of the Clans.

Howdy all ye Bitter and Salty 🙂

After leaving most of my toons languishing in the mid 80s, I’ve finally picked up my Mage and gotten her to 89. Her biggest issue is having to make trips back to Shrine of the Two Moons to maintain her transmog set (aka, keeping up with Magmaw). From the top down…

Helm = Crown of Endless Knowledge

Shoulders = Black Mageweave Shoulders

Cloak = Dark Phantom Cloak (not displayed)

Chest = Black Mageweave Vest

Wrists = Netherweave Bracers

Gloves = Black Mageweave Gloves

Belt = Beach Party Thong

Legs = Black Mageweave Leggings

Feet = Black Mageweave Boots

Staff = Tanjo Staff

Soon to be 90!

Dings and a new car!
