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

Draynoer “Release Date”

But what does it mean?

Does it make you want to go on hiatus or get all alts prepped and ready for expansion packs?

Did any characters get a boost?

Stay Classy Not Classy

Strumpet changes char to Tauren and upsets people

Blood Elf Monk update… Feralas is for Skinning and Dire Maul Ogres

Left out of Raiding

Why raid when you can watch someone else stream their own raid?

TSM Application Closed Beta

Updates to the TSM desktop application:

“In addition to updating AuctionDB’s market value and min buyout prices for the realms you have selected, the application will update AuctionDB with a handful of new global market prices. These are based on horde and alliance across US and EU combined.”

According to Sapu, “This tells you exactly what people are paying for a given item. The way we are determining this is unique to TSM, and extremely accurate compared to TUJ and similar websites.”

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.

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.
