In the thirty-seventh World of Warcraft podcast episode, we play how we want to play and hit the buttons we want to hit (even if it’s one), Sláinte switches over to ElvUI, we fly through patch 5.4’s new raid, The Siege of Orgrimmar, we level Blacksmithing with Ghost Iron Bars until we realize that’s dumb, we convert the super-secret rare MoP gear market into a Molsan Method list for you, we speculate on how the in-game economy will be affected by Virtual Realms, we reveal our favorite Wrath of the Lich King dungeon for our Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft, and we challenge each other to become double agents.

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

Pet Battles

Dear Bitter and Salty,

After listening to your show the past two weeks, I finally took the time to write in about leveling Battle Pets quickly. Much like you as I was progressing through the Trainers through the various zones and needed to level up other pet families then the ones I had at level 25. I ran into the same issue in trying to identify a way to level a pet up rapidly and ran into the same suggestions of doing the dailies, but as you are aware when you are at that point you can’t use that process fully until you’ve beat the trainers you need to level pets for!

So I stumbled across one comment about taking your low level pet and putting it in a team with two other 25’s and taking it to Dragonblight in Northrend. At all of the dragon skeletons throughout the zone there are Dragonbone Hatchlings (http://www.wowhead.com/npc=62852) They are in the area in an abundant amount and hit fairly weakly and respawn fairly quickly. So if you are looking for a rather fast way to level up a low level this is one way. Keep in mind this will get fairly mind numbingly boring very quickly considering you will be facing the same pets over and and over.

With that in mind I wanted to find another way that wasn’t so grindy and so boring. So here is where I get to the “secret”. With your leveling pet in the first slot, (get it up to level 3 at least, so it isn’t one shot), go around the world and hunt all those other pets you know your OCD is telling you to collect. Let that leveling pet take a hit or make a hit, and then rotate it out. Rinse and repeat as you travel around the world trying to collect rares. So kill two birds (two dragonkins, whatever) with one stone, level a pet and collect all the things!

I found in one weekend of moderate playing, while waiting for Raid Finder queues to pop I was able to level at least one of every pet family to max level and not feel like I was fighting the same stuff over and over to the point of insanity. Meanwhile I was collecting all the pets I didn’t have and picking up the rares.

I know you also touched briefly on this but if there is a certain pet family you need, hop over to wowhead.com orwarcraftpets.com and see if there is a high level version in a Northrend/Cata/Pandaria zone you can hunt and capture a rare that you don’t have. When you capture them they will be around level 22-23 saving you a lot of leveling. I distinctly remember needing like two turtles since I had none anywhere past level 3 and was able to pick up two I still needed to capture in MoP zones saving me a ton of time.

As always great job with the show and I look forward to the next one! Good luck and good hunting!

Catch up Wk 15:

Vuhdo. Oh my goodness. It started out years ago as just something to make healing easier, and now, it has morphed into my entire casting interface, no matter who I’m playing. I love that I can bind anything (spells, potions, bandages) to my mouse. And that there’s a whole area of “hostile” spell bindings for fighting. Top that off with complete customization, auto buff renewal, and profiles I can save and load throughout my acct… And you have one satisfied caster.

Wk: 16

Violet Hold

I just love it! As far as the Wrath Dungeons go, it’s totally my favorite. I like that it’s in Dalaran, it’s all in one room, and there’s that gamble on who you’ll fight. Its quick, easy, and totally different than any other Instance I’ve done.

In the thirty-fourth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we fall behind what’s happening in patch 5.3, we continue to argue about herb and ore prices, we wonder what the rare MoP BoE armor and weapon market is, we ask why one would run both TSM and Auctionator, we sort of figure out how to manage in-game whispers, we realize wow-pro is broken in Northern Stranglethorn, and we progress in LFR, pet battles, and with our thirty weeks of World of Warcraft by answering the question: what is your favorite Burning Crusade dungeon.

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

G’day Lads,

DAMN YOU, I CAN’T JUST PICK ONE!!!

Like most things in wow, I have favourite things for different reasons. There’s been some great times had in several of the BC dungeons as part of the Kara attunement, grinding sporregar rep and ‘erbing in Slave Pens and Underbog was always fun, and I loved the look of the Netherstorm dungeons. But I’m going to choose Opening the Dark Portal as my favourite. This dungeon was different than most; once you started the event , it was do-or-die. This made for an exhilarating and adrenaline filled time, beta cause no one wants to start over again!  The tank would often dash off to the next portal while dps finished off the current one, leaving the healer (me) to decide who gets heals, or sometimes to even go pickup some mob that had gotten through and was beating down the shield. Good times indeed!

For the Horde!
