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

  • Stay Classy

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 ninety-third World of Warcraft podcast episode, we cover the state of professions in the game so far and consider the possibility that Blizzard may be eliminating professions altogether, we ask if Ore is broken and speculate on when it will be nerfed to bring it in line with other gathered materials, we analyze the many focuses of the expansion to determine what is the real gameplay in Warlords of Draenor, we research which profession is making the most gold, we debate the Personal Loot versus the Need/Greed loot system, and we wish everyone a happy 10th Anniversary of World of Warcraft.

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

Professions SO FAR

Drop all gathering professions?

Lack of balance between ore, leather, and herbs

Is ore “broken?” Good time to buy and stockpile?

Fish Shack Dailies

ENCHANT SHACK IS THE GREATEST EVVVVAAAAA!!!!!!

What is REAL WoW gameplay?

Is it questing? Dungeons? Garrisons?!?

A significant portion of gameplay is now sunk into Garrisons

More Garrison addons help (Master Plan and Garrison Mission Manager)

Making Gold in WoD

Inscription is D2M, but OH WAIT

From “Aarondf” on the Consortium forums:

“MANY people didn’t realize that you don’t need to wait for the Darkmoon Faire this expansion AND the fact that the Inscription decks have different names once transformed into the trinkets, I have made a killing on direct trinket sales. Many scribes (and I mean almost all) didn’t realize this and just posted their cards individually for sale, not thinking they could make decks of their own, or trading/waiting to complete their own.“

From Geers on the Consortium forums:

“gold making has been dominated by inscription so far this xpac”

Molten Core

YOU MUST RUSH TO 100, THEN GEAR TO 615.

LIMITED TIME.

Meh…

Happy 10th Anniversary

How do you delete the Corgi pet email?!?

Dungeon Loot Changes

From Rygarius:

We now have a hotfix in the works that will do two things:

  • The default loot system for Dungeon Finder groups will once again be Personal, instead of Need Before Greed. Full premade groups that prefer the latter system will be able to select it manually, as always.
  • We’re increasing loot yield from the final boss of each dungeon.
    • With Personal loot active, each player in a group will now always receive an item from the final boss.
    • With Need Before Greed active, the boss will now drop 3 items to be shared among the group as desired, up from 2 previously.

In the fifty-third World of Warcraft podcast episode, we fix all the problems with professions and request a new UI for crafting,  we wonder if our alts would get any attention if our mains had access to every profession, we get back to our weekly challenges and discuss participating in a new gold-making challenge; Sláinte wants to delete some of his 90s, while Molsan begins powerleveling pets to 25, we give out yet another tip for Blizzcon, and we continue the circle of rage over LFR and Flex Raiding by speculating about a Blizzard conspiracy to get rid of LFR.

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

Professions and Alts

Deleting 90s

Should Sláinte just delete 3 of his 90s? (Druid, Rogue, Warrior)

Weekly Challenge

Finish old dungeons/raids? Mount runs? Level another alt to 90? Level LW to 600 NO BUYING MATS

Weekly Challenge #2: Attumen the Huntsman

Gold Making Weekly Challenge

Dominate the market with one item / process (i.e. Living Steel Belt Buckles, Flasks, etc.) instead a bunch of random items

Try for a week to focus only on one way to make gold and report back with detailed stats and compare it to posting random transmog/flipped items

Kanzaki

Hey sliante and molsan,

Kanzaki from ER here. Was just listening to episode 52 and though it’s not one of your weeks of wow questions, I really liked your question about top 5 wow changes…

So, for me, the biggest change in the game was at the end of the burning crusade: Plus healing gear and plus spell damage gear merged into just spell power. I was a priest that leveled shadow, loved it, but decided to be useful, and would spec into mooncloth tailoring and be a healer at 70. When I hit 70, I was ready to heal, with my mooncloth set and all my plus healing gear. I hated it. I couldn’t do anything right and regulars were a complete disaster. Knowing that I would have to respec my character and my tailoring to get back to shadow, I said “forget that” and quit the game. I came back six months later and started leveling a new alt, but it wasn’t shadow. At the end of BC, healing power changed and I could join my guild in Karazhan for the first time, and I could do it as shadow. Though I have leveled other characters or specced into disc or holy, Kanzaki the shadow priest is my main and will stay that way, on the top of my character list.

Thanks for reading my rant and thanks for the great show.

Sincerely (in shadowform),

Kusof the Pally

Hey Molsan and Salty. Love the show and your tweets.

After listening to episode 52, I wondered what you Molsan (and definitely not for Salty who Hates guild repairs) thought was fair for Guild repairs. I had thought 75g or maybe 100g/day for our mains, but complaints came up every day with 5.4 and the damn timeless isle. Eventually I had enough and just bumped it to 250g a day. I’m on Bleeding-Hollow US, Horde side (who could play as the dirty alliance), and run a small guild of mostly PvPers. But ever since the timeless isle opened up, people are dying all over the place from falling or ganking, or even the Celestials, and repairs are adding up.

I can assure you the guild itself (Flonkerton, named after a silly game on an old episode of The Office) doesn’t have the cash flow to cover 250g/day. But gold is easy  to find in WoW…  and we have an army of alts to cover all our enchants/belt buckles/gems/xmutes/etc, so we don’t have many other costs in the game. And I have several markets I use to make loads of cash. But what level of daily repairs is fair?

And Salty, enjoy your DK vacation. I think we all know you’ll be back on your Pally before too long.

Jellad

Hey Guys,

I know this mail is really close to recording day, so I hope I make it in this week.  I’ve been meaning to mail you for a few weeks now to close out 30 W-WoW but I’ve been so busy!  Well here goes:

Week 27 — A time you made friends with someone in a group?

As I said on another episode, I met my wife in WoW, our two guilds were doing H Malygos in WoLK.  She had a sexy vent voice, and I was hooked.  I knew her for a year before we first met, and it was <3 at first sight.

Week 28 — Your favorite dungeon/raid/world boss?

I love XT from Ulduar.  I think its the funniest audio in the game.

Week 29 — Your favorite Mists of Pandaria dungeon?

This is hard for me because I love Asian themed anything.  MOP is a wow dream come true.  if I had to choose, it would be Temple of the Jade Serpent, although Stormstout brewery is a ton-o-fun

Week 30 — Your main character and what he/she means to you?

Wow, I am not even sure where to start with this.  Jellad is Me, and I am Jellad.  His history is wrapped up not only in world of Warcraft, but in Rift, Terra, and tabletop D&D that I played with RL friends a few years ago.  He has a long and complicated story filled with dream states, lots of relationships, and life and death choices and situations.  I don’t have it all written down anywhere, but its all in my head and my heart.  He interacts, and treats people as I personally would treat someone.  If you know D&D, he is a true neutral.  Good for bad, tit for tat.  Jellad is the first character, and the last character I will ever play.  I make him first in every game I play, and he experiences game life before alts are even a twinkle in my eye.  I know that sounds corny, but such is life, real, and virtual.

I also wanted to touch on some stuff you guys talked about last week

1. Murloc costumes rule.  period

2. I would love to see you guys do weekly challenges again. (2 conditions, no leveling challenges and no gold making challenges)  I have a personal maxed every class/profession challenge due by Christmas. (Currently 5 / 11)

<3 the show

~Jellad – CTR Aerie Peak

PS – Please don’t hate me for hating fishing, but know that i max it out on all my toons, mostly because I am OCD.

Moomoocachoo

I had two toons that never made it to level 20 before I made Moomoocachoo, my feral druid on Proudmoore to play with several friends who quit a week or so later. Moo was originally a boomkin born during WOTLK. It took me many month of play to level her and died more times than I’d care to remember. But Moo was a determined girl and one of my proudest moments in Wow was when she finally dinged 80. I had never done a dungeon, I had no idea how to gem or enchant, but dammit she was 80 and won my heart.In Cata, with the help of our guildie and friend Lurry Dean, Moo made the switch to Feral and finally found her calling at last and NEVER looked back!

Role Play secrets:

Moo hates boomkins and in PVP goes after them for sport.

Moo hates PVPers on timeless Isle and if they get near the edge will blow them over the cliff.

She and Baine Bloodhoof were in love when they were teens, but his mother couldn’t accept a druid as a daughter-in-law,
