Bitter and Salty – Episode 44 – Scratching It OffPosted by Bitter and Salty
In the forty-fourth World of Warcraft podcast episode, Blizzard binds epic weapons to your battle.net account and if you’re trying to get your character LFR-ready, just buy some gear already. We continue to hold each other accountable while we ponder dungeon and raid chatting etiquette. We try to convince ourselves that it’s better to use and display loot from Blizzcon than to sell it all, we explain why the tank role in LFR is tops, and give the hard sell on why Flex Raiding matters. We talk more hardware: video cards, keyboards, and mice… oh my! We toss out our fourth Blizzcon tip, but not before we determine the longest break we’ve ever taken from WoW for our Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft.

TWoWoW Week 23 What’s the longest you’ve been away from the game?
Sláinte – 2-3 months
January 2012 – September 2012
Tried playing other games
Participated in s4uc3d
Was SoR’d by none other than… Sláinte
@JoyPenny of Earthen Ring and Draenor
wk 23: The longest I have gone without playing is a year. I initially started playing on my husband’s account, and he chose to stop his subscription to focus on studying for an exam. (this was all before we were married) Eventually I just couldn’t take it anymore, and so I started my own account. 7 months and 1 marriage later, I was able to use the Scroll of Resurrection to coerce him back into the game.
That being said, I do take a Wowcation every year when I go into Crafting SweatShop Mode for the holidays. Also whenever anything breaks, I am very quick to boycott until it’s fixed. Maybe that makes me flighty or maybe I’m just a brat, but if the game doesn’t feel right, I just can’t play.
wk 22: First I need to say that I name ALL of my pets. I tend to favor names of past family pets, punny names like Kaity, my Little K.T., and old man names like George, my Blossoming Ancient.
My favorite pet to run with is my Dark Phoenix Hatchling. She’s not my highest level or my best battler or most rare… but she’s the one I Most enjoy hanging out with and seeing. She’s named Cramoisi, which is literally “Crimson” or a Purple hued red.
wk 20: Most sought after loot is the Ashes of Al’ar. I only have it on a Tournament Realm and the pink and orange streamers are my favorite part.
wk 19: Resto Druid, with Misty Monk as a close second. I do NOT Ever play in those weird animal stances with the exception of my purple birdie, Orca for swimming, and Emergency Monster Tree. Even when I have to DPS I am a Sparkly Elf and not a Boomkin. ew. But I am a healer to the core and enjoy all healing classes.
wk 17: Fav Profession is Herbalism on my Druid, and Fishing on everyone else. Herbing is so relaxing, just flying around gathering, never messing with mounts… I love it.
wk 18: yes, everyone is right, it’s the people. But for me in particular, it’s getting to play with my husband. The game is the most fun for me when we are playing together (He Tanks, I heal). And this impact extends into our lives from listening to podcasts together to buying one another things for gaming to just spending time together… Instead of the Spouse Aggro that so many talk about, Warcraft enriches our relationship and provides us with something very special.

@bitterandsalty I think longest time away was 23 days due to joint computer & Internet issues – not bad for nearly 8yrs playing 🙂

@bitterandsalty 6 months to study for my GMAT exam. A friend of mine needed a healer and would message me almost everyday to come back &Heal

@bitterandsalty Longest away was one expansion: WOTLK. Came back about 4 months before Cataclysm. Why? Still trying to figure that out.

Dude, sorry to hear about your back. Also sorry you are recording tonight. My answer for #30WoW: I’ve never taken a break from WoW other than vacations,so I guess my answer is Ethereal Soul Trader
