In the thirty-ninth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we care a lot about the valor-to-justice point pricing changes to epic vendor items, we assure you that making bags is still a great way to make gold, we really get into leveling and share our initial stories from our race-to-ninety leveling challenge, we wonder why it’s so easy and difficult to join a guild, we run down various ways of getting bonus and rested XP, and for our Thirty Weeks of WoW, we share our best and worst of World of Warcraft.

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

Death Comes From On High Quest: made me want to quit… Arcane eye “researching” the buildings

Got immediate level 25 guild invite within 5 minutes… They won’t know what hit them.

Getting into a Guild

Got invite almost right away but nobody grats’ted my dings and the guild bank was locked down so I quit.

Tried CtR… whispered a couple people about how to join. One person responded with the Web address… the other responded suggesting I join the channel “ctrlfo.” Sounds so familiar.

Hellfire Ramparts run… We tanked, we DPS’d, we won!! #LetMeCheck

Alliance side is confusing

Secret weapons are secret!

Sláinte

Hello Bitter & Salty darlings, Molsan and Slainte!

In reference to the latest week I wanted to chime in real quick.  I play many different mmorpg’s so I had to really think about what it is that makes WoW different and has kept me in the game (other than the amazing people who play it.)

I decided that my favorite thing about WoW is its depth and variety of gameplay…because World of Warcraft has been around so long Blizzard has been able to enrich its game like no other, in my opinion.  With patches, expansions and time, it’s created a game that provides multiple ways to level, many things to do at end game and a plethora of things to do in between.  We have questing, dungeons, pvp, raids, battlegrounds, pet battles, crafting (including fishing, cooking, etc), archaeology, guilds, transmogrification, ranching, dailies, weeklies, LFR (and flex-raiding coming soon) and more!  They really have listened to their player base and continue to improve our game.

Now for my least favorite thing…it’s a much simpler answer…hehe…I hate the travel system in WoW!  It’s a damn waste of time having to ride birds and whatnot to get from one place to another, and I long for the day they finally get rid of this out-dated system.  Waiting an hour to hearth is another waste of my time.  Give me a system like the one in Guild Wars 2, where I open my map and with the click of a button, I’m where the action is…that’s where I want to be, killing and looting and not finding something else to do in the RL while I wait for my tired, old bird to fly across Azeroth.  😉

Thank you for the show!  And thanks for hanging out with us on Friday night, Slainte!  =D

Your friend,

Juuno of Korialstrasz
