In the fifty-ninth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we finally tick off all of our boxes and correct our in-game combat lag, we kick off our Thirty Weeks of Warlords of Draw-nor with an in-depth discussion about Garrisons and Followers, Molsan’s monk dings 90 without being able to move to the left, and Sláinte is wrong about Warlords being free.

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

Combat Lag Saga

Tried SoO and had minimal/typical lag

Skada – Reduced number of segments to keep from 10 to 5

Right-clicked the Combat Log tab and unchecked all of the boxes

Defeated the iron scorpion looking thing then died to trash. Many times.

TWoWoD – Garrisons and Followers

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/11502044

Sláinte

Farming mats will be nice.

Send followers out to raid will be awesome, although I don’t know for how long.

Novelty will prob fade after 5-6 months. Unless constant changes are made.

DAILY follower task = New Daily Grind.

Name my followers after Cities I have visited, or Whiskeys I like.

Molsan

Any impact on the economy?

How will the change gameplay?

How will this affect the environment?

Hello darlings!!

Garrisons kinda sound like a pain in the booty…I mean, maybe I’m just lazy, but I don’t want to have to do what it sounds like I’m going to have to do in order to have my garrison.  And what it sounds like is that you’re getting it because there’s a war, and so you have to do all this stuff to raise your own “army” to fight that war.  Ugh…what I’m hearing is “work work work.”  I just want a place to put Onyxia’s head, plant some melons, and watch some Azeroth Days of Our Lives…is that so much to ask??  On the bright side, it sounds like it has fishing!  =D  And the followers…I wonder if they’re taking the SWTOR approach…send your “follower” off to fetch this or that and it costs x-amount of gold for them to fetch the better stuff, and you have to level that up as well…?  It’ll be interesting for sure, and despite all my griping I’m sure I’ll love it like everything else…hehehe.

Anywho, I hope you’re both doing great!

Tanasttia

Garrisons, Schmarrisons.

I don’t need no stinking Garrisons.

Immediate thought: the fear it will take up too much of my time in-game.

But it’s an interesting idea and looks to be well implemented, a swell little mini-game.

I want to play it on a tablet more so, then build up clever forces and defenses and fight other players’ garrisons like all my students do on their iPhones with Clash of the Clans.

Howdy all ye Bitter and Salty 🙂

After leaving most of my toons languishing in the mid 80s, I’ve finally picked up my Mage and gotten her to 89. Her biggest issue is having to make trips back to Shrine of the Two Moons to maintain her transmog set (aka, keeping up with Magmaw). From the top down…

Helm = Crown of Endless Knowledge

Shoulders = Black Mageweave Shoulders

Cloak = Dark Phantom Cloak (not displayed)

Chest = Black Mageweave Vest

Wrists = Netherweave Bracers

Gloves = Black Mageweave Gloves

Belt = Beach Party Thong

Legs = Black Mageweave Leggings

Feet = Black Mageweave Boots

Staff = Tanjo Staff

Soon to be 90!

Here are a few things that happened this week in WoW.

* I finally hit 10,000 achievement points on my account.

* I picked up a few more Secrets of the Empire and have 9 more to go.

* Thinking about getting into arenas.

Oh yeah – and thank you for the guild promotion and bank repairs.

See you in game.

Blinkphase

Hey this is the misspelling @blinkphase from the twitters I play a ret/prot space goat pally on ysondre and was just wondering what u guys thought about the idea of an expansion in the future being in the afterlife so Idk maybe you go visit a goblin/ gnome NPC and they give you a device that allows you to shift over to the spirit realm and enemies of old are there trying to make their way back to our realm. Would love to hear yalls thoughts on this take care love the show

PS LONG LIVE THE ALLIANCE !!

Dear Bitter and Salty,

Jean Bees and I were talking about my Darkspear Revolutionary title, and how I was thinking of race-changing my main to Troll because it seemed more thematically appropriate given the fallout from Vol’jin’s Rebellion. This led, naturally, into a discussion of Salty’s insistence that Vol’jin is NOT his warchief, and the back-and-forth that often shows up both in the show and in the aftershow comments.

So what’s the deal here? Does Salty *really* not support Vol’jin in his quest to unseat Garrosh? Do either or both of you actually believe that Garrosh is a better warchief than Vol’jin (or, really, anyone else)? If not Vol’jin, who would you (plural) like to see as the Warchief of the Horde (and no, Jaina Proudmoore doesn’t count)?

I look forward to hearing more about this subject on the next episode of Bitter and Salty.

Vol’jin Lives,

Ghraycee of Wowcoholics Anonymous, Proudmoore

Guess who has a priest with two thumbs and a flight path to Pandaria?

this guy!

Thanks to some help from +Jean Bees  (and a whack of XP from Hallow’s End), I was able to get my priest, Arkuchimuya, up to 85 tonight.

Huh. I may actually end up with a level 90 Alt before the end of this expansion!

For those of us who don’t power-level alts, what do +Bitter and Salty – A World of Warcraft Podcast recommend as a leveling strategy?

In the fiftieth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we continue the Siege on Orgrimmar and collect all the empire’s dirty little secrets, we cut deep into constructing expansions and suggest that the main storyline shouldn’t have to flow through raid content, Molsan begins leveling his Shaman and realizes that there are new and amazing addons to install, we get lazy and use rotation macros, in-game quest guides, and addons for automatically turning in quests, Sláinte wins the Recount vs. Skada debate once and for all, we announce our favorite Mists of Pandaria dungeon for our Thirty Weeks of WoW and gently reveal that dungeons are no more.
