Episode 103: "The Garrison Gambit"

Guest host Kristin returns! With Katie going down to PAX East during recording, Kristin was kind enough to not only guest host—but guest host with the voice she'd lost only the night before!

We talk about 6.1's best features and how it's been affecting us, and what we're doing about S.E.L.F.I.E.s, Blackrock Foundry, raids, followers, world bosses, garrisons, and much more!

Episode 100: "BA-BAM!"

It's episode 100—we're as surprised as you are! It's an action-packed episode! (Well...it's packed, anyway!)

February is a big month in WoW with lots going on!

Love Is in the Air! We talk about two new achievements for this year, one easy and the other is really hard! 

Here's the post by a guildie about how to get charms easy-peasy:

Every expansion has an easy way to make Lovely Charms for the Valentine's event, and WoD is no different. Go to Spires of Arak, 58.6 45.0 and kill Stingtail workers and drones. The mobs respawn almost instantly, and die like they're made of flash paper and balsa wood. I created over 500 charms in less than an hour. Extra bonus: bring a bodyguard from your garrison and level up his rep at the same time. i leveled Delvar from nearly 0 to maxed out while I was making charms

Look! It's the new Mystic Runesaber! There is major squee!

Episode 99: "Be Like the Cool Kids"

Episode 99: "Be Like the Cool Kids"

Sad news this episode, as we talk about the terrible fate of WoW Insider. It's being closed down by parent company AOL and this affects people we know personally.

Next, we cover very welcome crafting news—Draenor goods are no longer time gated! We're so happy for that!

Blizzard announced some changes to Fishing that were not well received. They have since reverted their changes and added a new item to make everything better.

Followers may expand their prowess yet even more than before.

Eric changed the load out of his buildings in his Garrison to something that is better than nothing.

The Twitter integration is working in the PTR!

World of Warcraft: Chronicles is a new thing!

Katie discussed 10 Secret Locations, which will be the source of new wallpapers for Eric.

Eric's happy with the way lockouts are being handled in Highmaul.

And finally, we discuss answers to the First Class Question that Eric proposed in social media!

Episode 94: "Blook!"

Episode 94: "Blook!"

A new episode and we chat about Garrisons mostly—but since there's so much intertwined and connected to Garrisons we actually branch out and include a bunch of other topics as well.

Did you know you need only unlock level 3 buildings once for all your characters? I did not, which is why this Warlords of Draenor Garrison Level 3 Blueprint Guide by WoW Insider was so helpful.

Plus, Katie has found a new pet website, Battle Pet Roundup, which sounds pretty keen!

Oh, and our favorite follower? Why, it's Blook, of course!
