Weekly Podcast Roundup: March 1st, 2010 through March 8th, 2010 {WoW}

Mar 8th 2010 1:53PM Thanks for including CASTaclysm. We're proud to finally be delivering this podcast and can't wait to see what the future holds!

Breakfast Topic: Hi ho Silver, away! {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 9:45AM In a game that has no way to "win", mounts to me sort of represent rolling the credits on various facets of the gameplay. I love the idea of the use of mounts as trophies for completing all the hardmodes of a particular dungeon.

My personal favorite mounts, which I do own, are the Furious Gladiator's Frostwyrm and the Swift Spectral Tiger. No two items have ever elicited so many whispers.

And before you nail me on the Spectral Tiger, I'll readily admit that I won the mount alongside many others at Blizzcon 2009's "Loot Elemental" booth. (Notwithstanding the fact that I won the trip to Blizzcon from the Mtn Dew "Choose Your Side" promotion... Yeah, it was a lucky year.)

Enter to win a Creative WoW wireless headset {WoW}

Oct 1st 2009 7:56AM I need these headphones because while it may be clear to people sitting directly behind me that I'm playing WoW, it wasn't clear to those on my sides. These shiny WoW symbols on the earcups should take care of at least 180 degrees of notification.

I suppose I could wear my Blizzcon minted Cataclysm shirt to notify the other 180...

The Queue: Trinket-Palooza 2009 {WoW}

Sep 17th 2009 10:57PM Just so you know, Heroic Leap IS actually being reintroduced, just not by the same name:

"Rocket Jump - Activate your rocket belt to jump up to 20 yards, every 2 min "

Goblins are getting this ability as a racial.

Breakfast Topic: So when is Patch 3.2 going to hit? {WoW}

Jul 16th 2009 8:59AM I'm telling you right now...

Tuesday, August 18th is the day. And here's why...

August 18th is exactly 17 weeks from the start of Arena Season 6. No Arena Season has ever gone shorter than 17 weeks, and the last two Seasons (4 & 5) both went for 17. Season's end always coincides with patch day.

And remember we'll know for sure the second they announce the "two-week notice" on Season 6. They have made a commitment to that announcement, and without fail, the patch hits on the day the season ends.

Guessing on the patch 3.1 release {WoW}

Apr 8th 2009 2:55PM Let's look at this practically...

Arena will end on or shortly after the release of the patch.

Arena will end the 14th (or the week after).

The patch will hit on the 14th, most likely, coinciding with the end of the season.

Ready Check: Guide to Naxxramas (Kel'Thuzad) {WoW}

Jan 27th 2009 9:24AM This also frees up another DPS slot for 10 man to make sure you burn him fast through Phase 3. I'm seeing several guilds doing this now that all the MT's are well-geared.

Many guilds will still opt to bring the OT though, simply because the rest of Naxx provides various fights that require it.

Jan 27th 2009 9:19AM A couple comments for melee heavy groups:

Our guild often has around 9 melee DPS for KT in 25-man (Plus the tank makes 10). We arrange in a 4-point square around KT, with the tank on one side, and three groups of three melee at max hit box each around KT.

(If you use Deadly Boss Mods like we do, typing /range will give you a box that tells you whether or not you're within that 10-yard range of someone else)

Each melee cluster is its own raid group so that healers can designate someone to heal "top, middle, and bottom" when the frost blast hits.

Oh, and I almost forgot, we have two offtanks doing nothing until Phase 3, lol. If we had less melee, they would become a part of the 4-point square.

Generally, we one shot KT with this set-up.

Despite the craziness of frost blast, the number one killer of our players is Shadow Fissure. The worst is an offtank that has massive guardians distorting his vision of the ground.

If you're healing, interrupting frostbolts, cc'ing someone, offtanking, main tanking, DON'T GET TUNNEL VISION.

Like we say before every KT attempt, "Ok this fight you're gonna need 6 eyes."

Jan 9th 2009 4:01PM The poster who put this up, Runthak, is actually Markco. He posted the gold-making tip on the wow forums. He actually writes a gold-making blog as well at

That is where the original post on all of this can be found. Just thought it was interesting. I wonder if Blizz was ready to fix this before they saw this post...
