In the sixty-fourth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we discuss all things raiding by comparing our experiences with flex raiding and LFR, Molsan chickens out on tanking LFR on his Death Knight and chooses to solo Naxx 25 instead, Sláinte sets the official date for our Herald of the Titans raid, we get our level 80 trinkets from the Dark Moon Faire, we continue to over-analyze our auction house workflows and begin looking at our own sales data, and we cover Mythic-tier raiding and the changes to raid team configurations for our Thirty Weeks of Warlords of Draenor.

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

In the forty-seventh World of Warcraft podcast episode, we’ve got super big plans and lofty goals before patch 5.4 drops, Molsan steals Lei Shen’s thunder — and his hat — and completes ToT; Sláinte tanks LFR and almost gets kicked from a group for the first time; we wonder why PvP is part of the legendary quest line; we tally up our slash played for our Thirty Weeks of WoW; we hit you with some quick TSM operations tips; we remind you to charge your battery before you attend Blizzcon; and we ask the party for help when running a heroic scenario for the first time.

/played is 108 days, 6 hours across all toons.

This is probably less than most of you old-timers, but it’s a pretty scarry account of all the sleep that I’ve lost since my beginning in 4.1.

Ashayo

Numbers are scary, but they don’t really tell the full story. I’m sure you guys are like me, and have days, weeks or months of AFK time at the Auction House!

Or similar amounts of time watching for the TLP out of the corner of your eye. Well, not Slainte – lucky bastard guy!

Anywho, for what it’s worth, here are my crazy silly stats for both accounts. It excludes realms that I just have a couple of lowbies that I didn’t spend much time on. And of course,

alot of the time, I’m logged into both accounts at the same time.

Quick catchup – Fav Cata dungeon is Throne of the Tides (many of the others had mechanics that were very pug unfriendly). Least fav profession – First Aid ; though I’d prefer they buff or enhance it rather than take it away.

In the forty-fourth World of Warcraft podcast episode, Blizzard binds epic weapons to your battle.net account and if you’re trying to get your character LFR-ready, just buy some gear already. We continue to hold each other accountable while we ponder dungeon and raid chatting etiquette. We try to convince ourselves that it’s better to use and display loot from Blizzcon than to sell it all, we explain why the tank role in LFR is tops, and give the hard sell on why Flex Raiding matters. We talk more hardware: video cards, keyboards, and mice… oh my! We toss out our fourth Blizzcon tip, but not before we determine the longest break we’ve ever taken from WoW for our Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft.

@JoyPenny of Earthen Ring and Draenor

wk 23: The longest I have gone without playing is a year. I initially started playing on my husband’s account, and he chose to stop his subscription to focus on studying for an exam. (this was all before we were married) Eventually I just couldn’t take it anymore, and so I started my own account. 7 months and 1 marriage later, I was able to use the Scroll of Resurrection to coerce him back into the game.

That being said, I do take a Wowcation  every year when I go into Crafting SweatShop Mode for the holidays. Also whenever anything breaks, I am very quick to boycott until it’s fixed. Maybe that makes me flighty or maybe I’m just a brat, but if the game doesn’t feel right, I just can’t play.

wk 22: First I need to say that I name ALL of my pets. I tend to favor names of past family pets, punny names like Kaity, my Little K.T., and old man names like George, my Blossoming Ancient.

My favorite pet to run with is my Dark Phoenix Hatchling. She’s not my highest level or my best battler or most rare… but she’s the one I Most enjoy hanging out with and seeing. She’s named Cramoisi, which is literally “Crimson” or a Purple hued red.

wk 20: Most sought after loot is the Ashes of Al’ar. I only have it on a Tournament Realm and the pink and orange streamers are my favorite part.

wk 19: Resto Druid, with Misty Monk as a close second. I do NOT Ever play in those weird animal stances with the exception of my purple birdie, Orca for swimming, and Emergency Monster Tree. Even when I have to DPS I am a Sparkly Elf and not a Boomkin. ew. But I am a healer to the core and enjoy all healing classes.

wk 17: Fav Profession is Herbalism on my Druid, and Fishing on everyone else. Herbing is so relaxing, just flying around gathering, never messing with mounts… I love it.

wk 18: yes, everyone is right, it’s the people. But for me in particular, it’s getting to play with my husband. The game is the most fun for me when we are playing together (He Tanks, I heal). And this impact extends into our lives from listening to podcasts together to buying one another things for gaming to just spending time together… Instead of the Spouse Aggro that so many talk about, Warcraft enriches our relationship and provides us with something very special.
