We're not dead! The podcast is still alive!
There were some things that've kept us from recording, alas. It's all explained in this shorter-than-usual episode. Have a listen!Read More
In this episode, we posit that perhaps the mage is the baseline class for all other classes. We explain why/how. Then it's on to the glorious transmogrification changes that're upcoming in Legion, some PvP antics, why we play at all and the differences between Katie and Eric, and much more!Read More
We're alive! And back!
This episode was posted a bit late—but think of it as being first with tips for next year's Hallow's End!
Plus, we talk about raids, pets, toys, and much more!
Enjoy—and see you soon with more new episodes!Read More
Today's special guest in absentia is Eric's spousal unit. The three of us, in our own special way, cover a whole bunch of topics! There's flying, garrisons, pets, treasures, holidays, and more!Read More
There's a new expansion!!
We cover (almost) all that's known about the expansion so far, including:
We're back with all sorts of things to talk about regarding Patch 6.2 and Tanaan Jungle and so forth!
Among our topics:
There will be flying in Draenor! Super-exciting news and a dramatic reversal from Blizzard! We'll all be able to fly—once we perform a handful of tasks...
Check your progress on WoWhead's wonderful tool here.
We go on to talk about preparing for Patch 6.2, including why you should get every single Apexis Crystal you can get your hands on before the patch drops. If you get the maximum, you'll have three iLevel 695 items on the first day! MMO Champion explains how.Read More
Katie and Eric address the state WoW is in and wonder whether the combination of Garrisons and the edict against flying are the worst things to happen to the game, and if that's why we haven't been logging on much lately.
But wait! Solutions are offered and optimism is raised—a tiny bit...
Plus Eric proposes a week-long experiment!Read More
Golly we cover some news! First, of course, there's the latest hubbub about flying!
Then there's all this about subscription numbers, Garrisons, and the influence of all upon everything.
Then there's talk about loot optimization in 6.2.
And pet news!Read More
It's all about Mother's Day and chores and the like! Namely, doing chores in-game and what impact that has had on larger gameplay. Subscriptions took a hit and we ponder whether that's because or in spite of Garrisons.
And we talk about the influence—and lack thereof—of guilds and many other topics on the topic-rich episode!
So many topics this episode—and lots of links for the show notes!
Have either Katie or Eric bought or sold one of those new tokens? Find out?
Then, Eric has a new scheme for managing his full bank and void storage and all of that via a new transmogrification scheme, inspired by WoWHead's new transmogrification guide.
Both Katie and Eric are looking forward to the new Timewalking feature.
Pepe is getting new costumes and there's a new Left Shark pet coming in 6.2! There is excite!
And let's not forget about the new mounts in 6.2!
And before the show ends, Eric makes Katie feel special because of Starcraft II!Read More

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!Read More
Quite a few topics this episode as we start with some interesting patch notes then get right into the main course, a post on the official forums that's about Garrison chores and having "nothing to do."

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!Read More
