In the one hundred and tenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we reveal all of our exclusive BlizzCon tips, and put our special guest through a rigorous Q&A to help you maximize your enjoyment of the convention, we learn that Frost Death Knights are almost as awesome as Blood, and even get their own hidden artifact weapon, we switch Mage specs and explain why it doesn’t cost you as much Artifact Power as you might think, we find out that you are supposed to use five specific order hall champions for each class, we learn about passive aggressive loot etiquette by running heroic Neltharion’s Lair, and we confirm that the Headless Horseman mount is once and for all… a lie.

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

In the one hundred and seventh World of Warcraft podcast episode, Emerald Nightmare raiding begins with one-shotting bosses and wiping on eyeballs, Molsan is stuck completing one zone at a time before realizing he can click on a tab to work on profession quests, Sláinte visits Suramar to fight world bosses for bonus roll coins, and then wastes them on double gold, we install TradeSkillMaster, search for great deals, and craft easy-selling components while flipping Thug Shirts, we move ourselves to the front of the queue to run dungeons, and we answer the question that everyone has been asking… does Salty even care at all.

Salty and TCD Raiding

  • Story time

Professions and Zones

  • Molsan thought you couldn’t start a new zone until one was completed
  • Now… All the profession things will be crafted
  • Do as many profession questlines as you can before 110… You get the XP, can unlock flight points, craft gear for yourself, alts, and the AH

Dungeon Quests

  • According to Pancake, you get put into the front of the queue if you have a quest for that dungeon

TSM

World Quests

  • How to do World Bosses
  • Current Story Time

Does Salty Care Questions

  • “With the opening of Emerald Nightmare Mythic and LFR, two new armor tints are available. Unlike Warlords of Draenor, LFR gear resembles actual tier in Legion!”
  • Do you care if LFR gear is a recolor of Legion tier gear?
  • “The quests In Nightmares and Essence of Power cannot be completed on LFR difficulty.”
  • Do you care if you cannot complete this quest in LFR?

Tip of Salt

  • Be THAT friend
    • Help your drunk friends
    • Help yourself

In the one hundred and sixth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we race to max level only to find all the withered things we need to do to get raid ready, Sláinte dings 110, while Molsan lets his Legion companion app tell him how to play, we rediscover group finder in-game to fight world bosses and complete group quests, we regret raid finder almost as much as Ghostcrawler, and blame LFR for him leaving Blizzard, we run dungeons instead of questing, debate over the best and worst order halls, ask you to hearth to your Garrison before returning to Dalaran, but most of all, we want you to not be disappointed in the World of Warcraft.

Leveling!

  • Leveling up for… what?
  • What’s next? World Bossing, Suramar, Artifacting, Keystones, Withered?
  • You ding and… nothing happens; no new talent, no grats in guild chat, etc.

Mobile App Order Halls

  • You can just do these forever… Oh, until you run out of OH resources. GG

Molsan Wonders

  • Why can’t you just get a rez timeout where you die instead of making your corpse-walk through Hightmountain?

EMERALD NIGHT MARE PREVIEW

Salty is Fishing Again

  • Meta phone screenshot of Salty Salty on a raft
  • Death Knight fishing only on mains kk

Happy Pirate Day

  • Who cares

Group Finder is Awesome

  • Created a group, and within a couple of minutes had help in Stormheim to take down elite quest mobs (Stonefang and the eagle for Rigging the Wager)

Challenge: Leveling Together

  • Fresh hundeyz
  • Demon Hunters

Ghostcrawler Regrets LFR

  • Tweet about him regretting LFR?
  • “To be clear, the goal of getting more players into raiding is a good one. But the way Raid Finder turned out removed, IMO anyway, a lot of the epicness of what made raiding raiding. I also haven’t played WoW in a few years, so it’s entirely possible they have solved the problem by now.”

First Dungeon: Darkheart Thicket

  • Tank was Pally… 110
  • Healer was Pally… 101
  • SP and Rogue were 103… I was 103
  • SP damage was pathetic… was around 24K… I was around 50, Rogue and Pally tank were well above that
  • Great if you are an Herbalist
  • Very linear… looked great
  • Never felt like anything was threatening
  • Gained about 16% xp and got a couple of i730 pieces!!
  • Always thank the tank

Hearthing

  • Before you hearth to start your next quest or talk to Khadgar… Hearth to Garrison first

Best/Worst OH

  • Best… Warrior/DK?
  • Worst… Mage? Rogue? (you can’t mount in either)

Salt Tip

  • Do not be disappoint
