In the one hundred and twelfth World of Warcraft podcast episode, world quest bosses drop legendary and hidden artifact weapons as long as you remember to loot them, Molsan falls in love with the Holy Priest, and running Skyreach over and over isn’t enough to break him, Sláinte’s headset and computer melts down mid-raid, and he decides to go wireless for the first time, we discuss how to properly level Cooking by avoiding your Garrison and participating in Pilgrim’s Bounty, we explain how Fishing is not painful, but relaxing, especially when using a laptop while watching TV, and we break down shoulder enchants, making gold with fishing lures, and we help copy weak aura strings into your game.

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

Email from Eelor

Greetings Molsan and Salty,

Thought I would take the time to write you an email after hearing how you don’t get to many of them. I can only imagine how much work goes into producing your show on a regular basis and I want you to know it’s much appreciated. I thoroughly enjoy the format, the loosely scripted back and forth that harkens back to some of the old radio shows before TV. Listening to you guys kind of makes me think of Felix Unger and Oscar Madison hiring a goblin kodo caravan to take them from Crossroads to Ratchet. ( I’ll leave it to you guys to decide who is who) 😉

Between Molsan, who lifts up the hood of the game and dives down the rabbit holes of WoW’s unique characteristics, and Salty, the classic raider who takes the simplistic view and just has fun getting shinies, you guys have nailed it. You struck on the formula that gets me immersed in your show and in-turn gets me immersed in the game through the show, which is exactly what I want in a podcast.

I work 70 hrs a week and game time is limited which wasn’t a problem until Legion. This expansion is just too much fun to walk away from. As a  trucker, podcasts are the best way to pass the miles and it wasn’t until Legion that I thought of WoW podcasts to somehow bring the game with me on the road. I have tried a lot of them and I do have a few that I really like a lot but I have to let you know that Bitter and Salty is definitely my favorite of them all. So thanks!

  • Couple of footnotes; passive-aggressive add-ons, hysterical but true! …love it.
  • Also, how do you copy and paste weak auras codes from that Web site. I suppose I could look all that up but any extra tips would be appreciated.
  • Finally, artifact power, OMG, what a channel for my OCD. I could make a list:  things I could do but instead I have to grind artifact power! Lol!

Sincerely,   Eelor…Draenei Resto Shammy on Moon Guard.

No BlizzCon, No Tip

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.

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

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?

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
