Great podcast for some, not so for others.

The show just isn’t for me anymore. Pat is fantastic but Thyst isn’t my cup of tea. To be fair, she’s a lot more tolerable than she was a year ago when she was trying to mount Pat on air, but with the addition of the incredibly unfunny Stats, it’s time to move on. I’m sure he’s a nice enough guy, but not for me. I miss the old cohosts, but it’s understandable that they had to move on, now it’s my turn. Thanks for the years of entertainment, Pat. Best wishes in the future.

Happy Pilgrims Bounty!  This week: Pat Krane, Koltrane and Dairies dig a little deeper into some of the new features revealed at Blizzcon in a very fun show with a couple of classic CtR bits just in time for Turkey Day.

A new post-Blizzcon video with the devs has surfaced, and with that come some new insights to Mythic Raiding, and the guys take a look at the pros and cons of the new system from all types of raid difficulties. More information on garrisons was revealed through the interview, including why they weren’t implemented for guilds.  But what does the CtR crew want and expect from such a feature?

Plus, more on armor changes from Ghostcrawler, speed kills now on WoWProgress.com, patch 5.4.2 and you, and we get to a ton of viewer questions. Plus, Dairies moves west, Pat gets shushed, and Koltrane loves your brains.

#122 - Convert to Raid: Who's to Blame?

Podcast cover
Read more

This week, the guys are back for another look at the latest buzz in the WoW community!

The Warcraft movie announced some of their cast members this week including Rob Kazinski, who claims to have a huge WoW background and plays a mean DK.  How important is it for our crew that the cast and crew of the movie play World of Warcraft?  Is there a meaningful difference to us if these guys are fans of the movie magic they’re producing?

Armory Stats show (as reported by MMO-Champion) that raiding numbers in Mists of Pandaria have dropped steadily over the expansion, with only 10% of raiders completing Siege of Orgrimmar.  Has the luster of raiding worn off, is the pain and toxicity of LFR too much for players to handle, or is it just a matter of time before those numbers start climbing again?

It was Greg “Ghostcrawler” Street’s last day last week, so how can we welcome the newest guy (Celestalon) to the forefront of the Blizzard community?  By blaming him, of course… for everything!

Raegwyn is back at downing bosses all by himself, and recently he took on (and defeated) Dark Animus in 10 man normal.  Find out how he did it, and what other encounters we should expect being soloed soon!

Could Blizzcon be changing for the future?  The Blizzcon follow up survey from this year certainly alludes that could be, possibly even splitting the panels from esports.  The guys break down how it could happen

All that, plus there are a ton of viewer questions in the mail bag, so Pat, Koltrane and Dairies give you their insights on your questions!
