In the twenty-second World of Warcraft podcast episode, we share our feelings about the 5.2 patch, discuss leveling a pet to 25 in less than 10 fights, we get into the iLevel 409 bind-on-equip item market, we ponder the gold-making etiquette when selling items to friends, we run Naxxramas for Herald of the Titans gear, and we ask about your first character for week 1 of our thirty weeks of World of Warcraft.

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