In the forty-fifth World of Warcraft podcast episode, we make appointments for patch 5.4 and the next expansion, the Dark Below. We cover the release of TradeSkillMaster 2.0 and reveal tips and tricks, and explain Groups, Operations, formulas, math, and even a quick and dirty setup to get you started with making gold using the latest version of TSM. We get all wireless with our peripherals, visit some place called “Funder” Island, and address additional WoW etiquette questions. We cover the Thirty Weeks of World of Warcraft’s least favorite dungeon, and we ask that, no matter what, you refrain from jumping in the pool.

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

I enjoyed what you guys had to say last week regarding player housing. I think it would be really cool to decorate your “home” with in-game trophies, e.g., old gear sets and legendary weapons. I have a similar idea: give players the opportunity to obtain mounts, titles, and gear that is specific to each xpac, e.g., Atiesh, the Amani War Bear, and <Hand of A’dal>. These things don’t give you an advantage in future game play, but from a nostalgic sense they are invaluable. As someone who started playing in 3.1, every time I see a player with the Corrupted Ashbringer I can tell immediately that said player was around during the old days of WoW, saw things that I never will, and probably has a wealth of stories to share. As more “old timers” leave the game, there are fewer examples of xpac-specific gear/mounts/titles. Sadly, that means that new players may never have their curiosity piqued by creative designs of yesteryear.

My favourite Cataclysm dungeon was Well of Eternity. It had fun mechanics and great lore! “Illidan!!! What are you DOING?!!?!”

 

Mildrid (Earthen Ring) / Svander (Dark Iron)

Favorite Cataclysm Dungeon:

Tomb of the Cybermen in Uldum Highlands.  Love the mechanics on the fight where you have to keep replacing the well fed buff, and the other fight where you have to trigger 5 cut scenes in the correct order.  Also great that they got unmistakable voice acting by Shia LaBeouf for the final boss Twain Mark IV.

Singing Sunflower Name revealed!

Hey BS crew!

First off, let me state that it will be an absolute crime if you don’t name your Singing Sunflower “MolSUN”.  Not only is it a fitting tribute to an awesome co-host and BFF, but also the irony of juxtaposing the sunflower, which is all about renewal and positivity, with Molsan’s generally sardonic outlook on things is pure pet-naming gold.

Also, if you have a disgusting oozeling and fail to name it “Dan Gooey”  I will uninstall WoW, move to Canada, buy a horse and stop bothering people.

On a similar note:  I am somewhat of a pet naming enthusiast, and though I’m humble about it, I can’t deny that I’m kind of a “big deal” on my server.  I tend to give my pets names that reflect either their physical appearance or general abilities.  For example, my Emperor Crab is named “Crabface McPinch” and my Anubisath Idol proudly wears the moniker “Dogface Manbody”  I was recently attempting to name my Kun Lai Runt “Mr Smashy” and I was denied.  Apparently the prefix “Mr.” is used in several popular euphemisms referring to several popular body parts that Blizzard deems sexual in nature.  It didn’t bother me until I remembered that “Mr Wiggles” was one of my Blizzard-named pets.  I submit to you that “Mr. Wiggles” is far more provocative than “Mr. Smashy”.  As a little experiment, I attempted to name my pet biscuit-enhanced chicken “Enourmous Cöck” and was successful.  I swear I don’t know what Blizz is thinking sometimes

Cheers,

Questions about mouse over macros and Naga and Nostormo

I really love listening to the show because it has changed the way I play and the way I feel about the game. Up until a few weeks ago (when I found your show) I tended to race to max level and race to grind gear. I thought that’s what I needed to do and I needed to stay caught up with my raid team even though we are just a casual group of friends who raid twice a week. Once there, as I am now, I tend to just work the AH to make gold. I never experienced the game content outside the raids and heroics. I never cared about lore, secondary professions, achievements, pets, mounts, etc.

Listening to you two discuss the game and how you play has made me interested in those other parts. I thank you for that.

Thanks

Pet Battle Email from Kori from Aerie Peak – US <Convert to Raid>

Hey guys,

I was thinking about the tweet I sent Slainte and thought maybe I should provide more info.

Here is my guide to getting your first lvl 25 pet fairly quickish.

Capture an Arcane Eye or few from outside Karazhan. These pets are a single pet fight around lvl 17. You should be able to take them out with around lvl 8-10 pets. It is 3 to 1 after all.

Get the blues if you can, else greens work just fine.

if you can’t find a green, grab a white or grey and upgrade them to green by paying 1000 justice points to the justice point vendor standing on the Temple of Niuzao

Battle lvl 20-21 pets. Capture any blues or greens you can. (or make them with JP stones) Swap out your team to the higher pets, and then fight any pets at least 3 levels higher then your own. Wild pets at this level lose 2 levels of experience when caught, so this trick will only take you up to around level 22-23 pets. Find a good spot with lots of pets in pandaria, (the pools in the vale work well, for example) and battle your way to 25.

All of the power level guides I’ve found assume you at least 1 or 2 lvl 25 pets. This is the quickest way I know to get that first 25.

Hey guys, great show.

As a new listener I’ve only heard a few episodes, but Bitter and Salty is already at the top of my playlist.

I’m also new to WoW, relatively, having started at the end of Cata, so I’m still spending most of my time catching up and experiencing WoW with a first time beginner’s mind.

You’ll probably talk about pet battles again and for when you do I’d like to point out that Mr. Pinchy is freakin’ awesome!  Molsan, Fish up a Mr. Pinchy!  Slainte, he’s just waiting to be the captain of your team.

For the seventeenth week in the World of Warcraft, how could it be anything other than fishing?  Hooray for Mr. Pinchy!  ‘nuf said, eh?

I missed the discounted character transfer weekend, and honestly I’m too cheap to have paid for a character transfer anyway.  However, I took a look at the Bitter and Salty’s “Stay Classy” progress and rolled a goblin mage on Earthen Ring.  If you’d like to toss me a guild invite, I’d love to join.

P.S. Aquoavo, Karazhan, Rogue, Howling Fjord, Dire Maul, Harrison Jones in Grizzly Hills, Remember the Sunwell, PvE, For the Horde?, Flameward Hipogryph, Noblegarden Gearset, What a Long Strange Trip it’s Been, Magister’s Terrace, Stratholme, Bartender, The Violet Hold, and Fishing! Hooray for Mr. Pinchy!

Hi Boys!

Thought I’d send an email for Week 17 of 30 Weeks of WoW: favorite profession. Too much to fit in a Tweet, and I know how much Salty Sláinte loves reading emails. 😉

My favorite profession in WoW has nothing to do with what is most beneficial for my class, and in point of fact, I have a love/hate relationship with this profession. It’s weird and wacky, it’s Engineering.

First, why I love it: there are so many fun, cool, useful items to make. From the chopper to the roflcopter, belt tinkers, bombs, trinkets, guns, goggles, gadgets, thingamabobs, and doohickeys, Engineering has loads of awesome toys to play with.

Why I hate it: Parts. All the freaking weird little parts you have to make BEFORE you can make the item. A framework, a tube, blasting powders, triggers, struts, contacts, a handful of nuts… err, I mean bolts. It’s an organizational nightmare converting raw mats to parts, parts to an item.

To me, though, the rewards outweigh the annoyance of constructing the item. I love blasting open a lockbox or having a belt tinker that projects a “cardboard” version of me to draw aggro. And don’t get me started on how much I adore my roflcopter!

I don’t think I have to tell you fellas how much I love the show and look forward to it every week, but I’ll tell ya again anyways!

Ciao for now!

Ashayo

Fishing! Nah, I just said that to maintain the ‘separated from Slainte at birth’ legend.

Inscription! Nah, I just said that coz Molsans Milling Macro is da bomb.

Cooking! Nah, I just said that so I’d have an excuse to say “rep with ma’ besties”

For the longest time, Jewelcrafting was my favourite profession. The reason was a combination of factors including that it was new, it was a good gold earner, there was plenty of opportunity to help guildies that didnt have the right cuts, and it had some pretty good JC-only perks. It’s kind of fallen out of favour with me this expansion, mostly because I think the first three of that list no longer really applies as much as it used to.

So I’m going to cheat and say my favourite profession is mining-alchemy-blacksmithing. There’s other combinations, but that’s currently my favourite. As an altoholic, there’s nothing more fulfilling than mining your own ore, smelting it, getting your alchemist to trasmute into trillium and living steel, then having your blacksmith make a super useful belt buckle or the like.

Stay professiony San Diego

Really enjoying the podcast – this is my first listen. 🙂

ElvUI and other bag modes – if you go into the configuration for elvUI (/elvUI), you can go to bags and disable the bag addon in ElvUI.

This didn’t affect my OneBag installation at all – just kept me from displaying 4 bags at the bank!

Joanna

I’m going to listen to this tonight while playing because you touch on a lot of relevant topics to me, but without listening, I’d say that dps is about spell rotation, that can end up with a lot of button hitting when the going gets tough. If it’s possible to soulstone a boss well I have possible done that, as well as hitting and equipping my fishing rod out of confusion, or perhaps building a cooking fire.

The Warlock noob. Hmm 5 years playing one and I’m an expert at questing, but put me in a raid and I’m like a toddler on a day out with the grown ups.

As for elvUI. I hated it at first and changed back to Blizzards default, but for me elvUI grows on you, until you just can’t do without it.

Looking forward to having a listen.

The combination of being under-geared, new to the game, and learning to heal had me dead so often it just wasn’t fun. As a self-confessed Altiholic and a fan of dungeon leveling, I have spent excessive amounts of time in Shadowfang.

G’day Lads,

DAMN YOU, I CAN’T JUST PICK ONE!!!

Like most things in wow, I have favourite things for different reasons. There’s been some great times had in several of the BC dungeons as part of the Kara attunement, grinding sporregar rep and ‘erbing in Slave Pens and Underbog was always fun, and I loved the look of the Netherstorm dungeons. But I’m going to choose Opening the Dark Portal as my favourite. This dungeon was different than most; once you started the event , it was do-or-die. This made for an exhilarating and adrenaline filled time, beta cause no one wants to start over again!  The tank would often dash off to the next portal while dps finished off the current one, leaving the healer (me) to decide who gets heals, or sometimes to even go pickup some mob that had gotten through and was beating down the shield. Good times indeed!

For the Horde!

Hey guys, it’s Grimm with another double submission for the 30 weeks of WoW segment. These questions both gave me a lot of trouble, one because there were too many good choices, the other because there were too few.

My favorite Vanilla dungeon is a tough one, because I don’t particularly like any of them. They were all so long and punishing if you failed, I had a hard time getting excited to ever do them. I suppose if I have to pick one, I’ll go with Scarlet Monastery, mostly because I love the run up to it in Tirisfal Glade. The long winding path lined with decaying trees with the Scarlet Crusade’s victims hanging from the branches was so eerie, and being a low level in a world of elites at the time, I found the whole thing pretty daunting. I also liked the environment of the Monastery itself. I enjoyed the different feel of each wing, and really loved the hidden room with High Inquisitor Fairbanks. I also remember longing to know someone with the Corrupted Ashbringer, so that I could see the way the dungeon supposedly changed for a player who carried it. I thought that had to be one of the coolest Easter eggs in the game.

My favorite quest chain, on the other hand, is nearly impossible to choose. Wrathgate and Quel’Delar are both awesome, as are many of the quest chains in Icecrown. But for pure nostalgia’s sake, I can’t not cheat a little and give a tie to the original questline in Eastern Plaguelands with Tirion Fordring, and the original chain to protect Pamela Redpath in Darrowshire, also in Eastern Plaguelands. I think I love the Tirion chain because as a Horde player it was really the first time that I had participated in a long chain with a big story payoff at the end, when (spoiler) you save Tirion’s son from his brainwashing at the hands of the Scarlet Crusade, only to have him killed in battle on the way out. I think it also stuck with me because when I did it, I had just finished the Chris Metzen short story about Tirion and felt for him being exiled from his family, and never really getting another chance to be a father and husband to them. And Darrowshire just felt epic to me because it reminded me of Seven Samurai, in that you have a very small force trying to defend a village from a huge invading force. Plus you are doing all this to protect the spirits of the town, and correct a past wrong, which was a cool twist I hadn’t encountered before that.

Well, I’ve probably rambled on long enough. Thanks for the great show, and I’ll talk to you guys next time.

Hey  Molsan and Sláinte,

For this week’s question “What is your favourite quest chain?” I immediately thought of 3 quest chains. The first one is the Greatmother Geyah quest chain in Nagrand. I think this is the single longest quest chain the game with all the quests you have to do to start it and finish it. This is my favourite one in the game, so long, epic, and lore-packed. Second: The Wrathgate; simply one of the most epic quest chains in the game. Third: the quest chain in Icecrown with the quest called “The Hunter and Prince”. In this one you get to take control of Arthas and fight Illidan! It was  one of the most fun quests I’ve done in the game to date.

Hope you guys have a great show, and I’ll see you next week!

Hey Bit and Salt,

Kanzaki, ER, here and loved that Onyxia fight. 1-shot on my shadow priest. Brings back some memories.

For the 30 weeks of WoW, I’d like to combine question 4 and question 6. I loved Stormpeaks and the Sons of Hodir quest line. More specifically, the Thrusting the Spear quest of soloing  drake while fighting in his mouth. I also enjoyed jumping from drake to drake around thorim and finishing one of the greatest old achievement for a priest, Who needs a Knuckle Sandwich, because priests need to cap their unarmed weapon skills.

Keep it up and always look forward to the next episode.

Favourite Questline. There’s been so many, I bet I’m forgetting some great ones!

I actually really enjoyed the majority of the attunement quest lines. They were long, required effort, and had a rewarding goal that wasn’t just a bit of loot that you’ll replace tomorrow.

The oldest one I recall is the Onyxia attunement (alliance side!) Helping many (many) folks with the Blackrock Depths prison run!

Karazahn attunement is an obvious favourite – very epic, plus it brought out the best in guildies helping each other.

But the quest line that I remember most fondly that is “just” a quest line would have to be the Linken quest in Un’goro. That kind of chain that takes you all over Azeroth, and spans many levels (if you start it at level) was a ton of fun and very rewarding. I still have Linken’s Boomerang on most toons – I remember when it was one of the few ways a pally had a ranged pull ability!

Hey Guys,

So I have two favorites, one is Amberseeds!  I knew I never should have touched that damn thing.  The second one is all of the quests leading up to the destruction of the jade serpent statue in Jade Forest.  I loved learning and reading all of the pandaria lore, and I enjoyed the whole questline where you are revealing the 3 prophecies on the wall as you complete each quest series.

Catch ya laters!

Hi guys,

I will try and keep this short but apologize if it’s not (I get verbose when typing).  I love the podcast!  You guys are the first thing I listen to in the morning and typically the last at the end of the evening.  I’m working on getting caught up on all episodes.

My main is Tazilhoff a level 90 gnome mage on Frostwolf but I’m in the process of leveling up Lowpand a pandaren warrior and Lizat a blood elf paladin on Mal’Ganis.

First things first to get caught up on the last 5 weeks of WoW and add my 6th:

1. My first character was Tazil the gnome mage.  I started playing in BC and I still have him to this day.  He’s my first and only 90 at this point.  Unfortunately I did lose the name Tazil when I realm transferred so he now goes by Tazilhoff.

2. My favorite raid is hard to come up with since the very first raid I’ve ever done was Mogu’shan Vaults.  Which was…well a little underwhelming.  I think that’s because it was using LFR and not with a group of people going the whole route.  The dragon was a fun fight though.

3. I’ve never been able to get excited about Shamans.  Not sure what it is.

4. I really liked the Hellfire Peninsula zone.  It was very epic at the time with the transition through the gate and the big war that was going on.  The sense of scale there was great.

5. My favorite vanilla dungeon would be Zul’Farrak.  That fight on the stairs of the temple was a blast!

6. I liked the quests with Tarenar Sunstrike and Gidwin Goldbraids in the Eastern Plaguelands. The friendship between the two from different factions was a lot of fun and very touching.  “The Paladin Palls” was a good touch.

Last but not least!  I was in Warsong Gulch with my warlock and trying to capture the flag.  I was about five steps away from the flag when I was killed.  But!  I was able to use my soulstone to come back, grab the flag, and capture it for my side!  I thought that was pretty epic. 🙂

I hope you guys are having a great show and keep up the good work!

Favorite Quest Line:

http://www.wowhead.com/quest=28096/welcome-to-the-machine

Welcome to the Machine in Hillsbrad Foothills.  I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s going to pick this, but it’s pure meta-hilarity from the first leg of the chain.  This quest is reason enough to roll horde.

From Tanasttia:

Hey guys,

I’ve very much wanted to participate in your 30 weeks of WoW but kept putting it off until now it’s like Week 6 already.

I thought Tweets would be a succinct way to “catch up,” but I still would hate for you to have to read all that.

Suddenly, I had an epiphany! I will do the first 5 weeks in haiku form (though some are more like haiku couplets). Here goes:

Week 1

figured the game would suck

rolled the most ugly undead

Tardmo the Warrior

like a total noob

left the starting zone too soon

infinite corpse runs

 

Week 2

raided only Mists

two tiers of Cataclysm

fun folks but meh raids

 

Week 3

sneaky stabby-stab

never leveled one past 10

BG resentments?

 

Week 4

I longed for Vashj’ir

since my days in Desolace

plumbing wat’ry depths

 

WoW under the sea!

Molsan can’t understand me

swimming 3D quests

 

Week 5

Healing as Shadow

from 35 to 80

before LFG

 

so hard to choose one…

desert trolls, sunken temples

fathoms of black depths

 

lost centaur kingdoms

mountain complexes of dwarves

Okay… BRD!

 

Week6 HaikuCouplet favorite quest chain? / I like the one with hog snouts / or flights round the world

Week6 HaikuCouplet Part Deux: no, seriously / I really don’t remember / best just say WrathGate


Mentions

@Lumpythegnome The Day Deathwing Came is the best single quest, but Wrathgate is best chain for me.
