In the forty-fifth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we make appointments for patch 5.4 and the next expansion, the Dark Below. We cover the release of TradeSkillMaster 2.0 and reveal tips and tricks, and explain Groups, Operations, formulas, math, and even a quick and dirty setup to get you started with making gold using the latest version of TSM. We get all wireless with our peripherals, visit some place called “Funder” Island, and address additional WoW etiquette questions. We cover the Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft’s least favorite dungeon, and we ask that, no matter what, you refrain from jumping in the pool.

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

OMG The Formulas!

General Tips

Exit WoW and log in… if WoW crashes, your changes are lost

Use the TSM software… force update, log off/on to WoW to see changes

If you use an addon updater, override TSM UJ and TSM Wowuction to force 2.0+ update

The Quick and the Dirty

Create a global group and a default auction operation

Assign operation to group and you’re done

What Effects will TSM 2.0 Have on the Market?

I enjoyed what you guys had to say last week regarding player housing. I think it would be really cool to decorate your “home” with in-game trophies, e.g., old gear sets and legendary weapons. I have a similar idea: give players the opportunity to obtain mounts, titles, and gear that is specific to each xpac, e.g., Atiesh, the Amani War Bear, and <Hand of A’dal>. These things don’t give you an advantage in future game play, but from a nostalgic sense they are invaluable. As someone who started playing in 3.1, every time I see a player with the Corrupted Ashbringer I can tell immediately that said player was around during the old days of WoW, saw things that I never will, and probably has a wealth of stories to share. As more “old timers” leave the game, there are fewer examples of xpac-specific gear/mounts/titles. Sadly, that means that new players may never have their curiosity piqued by creative designs of yesteryear.

My favourite Cataclysm dungeon was Well of Eternity. It had fun mechanics and great lore! “Illidan!!! What are you DOING?!!?!”

 

Mildrid (Earthen Ring) / Svander (Dark Iron)

Favorite Cataclysm Dungeon:

Tomb of the Cybermen in Uldum Highlands.  Love the mechanics on the fight where you have to keep replacing the well fed buff, and the other fight where you have to trigger 5 cut scenes in the correct order.  Also great that they got unmistakable voice acting by Shia LaBeouf for the final boss Twain Mark IV.

Throne of Tides Beautiful and fun.

I kinda hate all dungeons so I’ll pick the one with Raz. Or the Well of Eternity one only cuz I could destroy meters on the last boss. Either one. Whatever.

Singing Sunflower Name revealed!

Hey BS crew!

First off, let me state that it will be an absolute crime if you don’t name your Singing Sunflower “MolSUN”.  Not only is it a fitting tribute to an awesome co-host and BFF, but also the irony of juxtaposing the sunflower, which is all about renewal and positivity, with Molsan’s generally sardonic outlook on things is pure pet-naming gold.

Also, if you have a disgusting oozeling and fail to name it “Dan Gooey”  I will uninstall WoW, move to Canada, buy a horse and stop bothering people.

On a similar note:  I am somewhat of a pet naming enthusiast, and though I’m humble about it, I can’t deny that I’m kind of a “big deal” on my server.  I tend to give my pets names that reflect either their physical appearance or general abilities.  For example, my Emperor Crab is named “Crabface McPinch” and my Anubisath Idol proudly wears the moniker “Dogface Manbody”  I was recently attempting to name my Kun Lai Runt “Mr Smashy” and I was denied.  Apparently the prefix “Mr.” is used in several popular euphemisms referring to several popular body parts that Blizzard deems sexual in nature.  It didn’t bother me until I remembered that “Mr Wiggles” was one of my Blizzard-named pets.  I submit to you that “Mr. Wiggles” is far more provocative than “Mr. Smashy”.  As a little experiment, I attempted to name my pet biscuit-enhanced chicken “Enourmous Cöck” and was successful.  I swear I don’t know what Blizz is thinking sometimes

Cheers,

Big Steve

Questions about mouse over macros and Naga and Nostormo

I really love listening to the show because it has changed the way I play and the way I feel about the game. Up until a few weeks ago (when I found your show) I tended to race to max level and race to grind gear. I thought that’s what I needed to do and I needed to stay caught up with my raid team even though we are just a casual group of friends who raid twice a week. Once there, as I am now, I tend to just work the AH to make gold. I never experienced the game content outside the raids and heroics. I never cared about lore, secondary professions, achievements, pets, mounts, etc.

Listening to you two discuss the game and how you play has made me interested in those other parts. I thank you for that.

Thanks

At first I really enjoyed this podcast, but with the host change, meh, not so much. Not a fan.
