In the twenty-first World of Warcraft podcast episode, we profess our love for Outland and for being able to say it correctly, we get back into the Transmog business, Elegon goes down, and Healbot is installed. We look for efficient ways of obtaining Justice points at level 80, we figure out what a Vermling is, and we introduce Bitter and Salty’s Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft.

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

Tillering

  • Call from Strumpet
  • Upcoming change in 5.2 to buy the farm:
    • “Players that have grown attached to working the land at Sunsong Ranch can now acquire the farm from Farmer Yoon via a quest. The farmhouse becomes a rest point like an Inn, where the player can bind and instantly log out. Work orders will pour into the farm from factions across Pandaria, and completing a work order will earn a reputation boost with the issuing faction. The option to take over the farm is available to characters that are exalted with the Tillers and have unlocked all 16 farm plots.”

Bitter and Salty’s Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft

Hey guys,

I’m a little late getting caught up on my podcast listening and I just listened to ep 20. You guys were talking about having trouble keying your PTT on vent or mumble when things get real busy. I’m sure you have received many suggestions by now on this issue but, I just wanted to give my suggestion about that. i use the grave(~) key as my PTT key. It is positioned just right in my opinion. As my hand rests on my keyboard during raiding I can reach that key with my little finger from just about any place on the keyboard.

 Love your show, keep up the awesomeness.

In the nineteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, love is in the air and we’re hot for some love token grinding, we review the 5.2 valor point reset and Elder Charm changes, we explain the upcoming changes to Fishing and break down pool migrations, we reveal more Tiller tips, and we deliver breaking news that valor points actually won’t reset after all.

Love is in the Air!

The Valor/Justice Point System and 5.2 Changes…

  • Valor/Justice and Conquest/Honor Resets
    • “With 5.2 we won’t be changing current Valor items to cost Justice, but they will be much cheaper (discounts from 50-75% off their current costs). You’ll need to acquire Valor after the patch is released to buy pieces for their discounted rate, or to buy the new 5.2 Valor items, but we’re also introducing new items to spend your Justice on, including heirlooms and Pet Battle stones.”
  • Elder/Lesser Charms
    • “While Charms won’t be converted, Lesser Charms of Good Fortune will no longer be used to purchase Elder Charms in patch 5.2. Instead Lesser Charms will purchase Mogu Runes of Fate. They’ll be purchasable in the same way; once a week, 90 Lesser Charms can be converted to 3 Mogu Runes of Fate via a quest in your faction’s Shrine. Mogu Runes of Fate will be usable for bonus rolls on 5.2 raid and world bosses only. Elder Charms will continue to be used for bonus rolls on 5.0 raids and world bosses, and will now be acquired as item drops by killing enemies in the new 5.2 Thundering Isle outdoor zone.”

  • Grimm fighting it out with Bashiok on Twitter

OH WAIT… THANKS, ZARHYM!

  • After reading your feedback and locking ourselves in dim, florescent-lit rooms for much deliberation, we have decided that we are NOT going to convert Valor to Justice and Justice to gold when 5.2 ships.
  • In addition, we’re making a change to ensure that there are some gear rewards available via the Kirin Tor Offensive and Sunreaver Onslaught, the two new factions with which players can earn reputation in 5.2 without raiding. The patch was shaping up to be a real challenge for players who don’t like raiding (including LFR), as our original design meant that no new Valor rewards would be available to them without needing to run Throne of Thunder. You can expect to see the Valor rewards on the Kirin Tor Offensive and Sunreaver Onslaught quartermasters updated on the 5.2 public test realms in the near future. These rewards are ilevel 496 and will only accommodate a few slots, as they aren’t intended to be very attractive to raiders (including those running LFR), but should give non-raiders something to shoot for in 5.2.

In the sixteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we discuss raiding in MoP, but also going back to Ulduar. We learn how to switch talents on the fly and what to do with guild bank tabs. We are relieved to be making gold without stress by buying transmog gear and crafting belt buckles, and we finally determine that we’re just a couple of tillering noobs.

In the fifteenth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we get all meta and confused, turn on meters for some dungeon runs, search for cool transmog sets and find nothing but human females, ponder about the next WoW expansion, declare WoWuction better than Undermine Journal for watch list notifications, and put our hands all over the Razer Nostromo.
