Episode 53 – Previewing Mists of Pandaria

Episode 53 is here and with it we look at talent options for Death Knights, Druids, Hunters, Mages and Paladins, with the other five classes coming next week. Note: we could be wrong about how cool any of this stuff is. We’re often wrong. Majik has been consistently wrong for nine years, for example.

I tweeted asking people to let me know what they were most looking forward to. Thanks to all for replying, please follow them!

@_Rades: GHOUL VOMIT (Vile Spew)
@buglamp: bearhugbearhugbearhugbearhugbearhugbearhugbearhugbearhugbearhugbearhug
@Achloryn: I’M TAKING UNHOLY BLIGHT FOREVER
@walkstweets: Boundless Conviction: Holy Power gets to get different than Combo Points! Hurray! Healing-wise, cooldowns are exciting between Void Shift (Priest), Vow (Priest) Ascendancy (Shaman), Healing Tide (Shaman)
@TiaOfET: excited for the surprises as I have no idea what to expect other then what @DuridJaymz gave away!!
@JoeEgo812: Anxious for losing Auras. Holy Avenger means I can use the Angry Man for AoE healing too.

Addons suggested by @oathblade/Nightwill:

Addon Control Panel

Elephant

GTFO

Remember, Apotheosis of Eldre’Thalas is recruiting! Warlocks in particular, but we’d also look at a resto shaman, an enhancement shaman and other ranged DPS classes. We’re 4/8 HM in Dragon Soul and would love to see some apps!

As always, please rate us up on iTunes and shower us with love in your review — and you get a shoutout on the podcast in return.

Episode 52 – Reviewing Rated Battlegrounds

Our topic for this 52nd episode is rated battlegrounds! What are they all about? How many people can play at once? What are some good strategies and tips for your RBG group? Our guest this week is Merkavah, a raider in Apotheosis who has taken charge of the Apotheosis RBG team.

Some helpful addons:

BattlegroundTargets – a basic enemy raid frame to show you names, roles and specs of the enemy’s team.
Healers Have to Die – an addon that points out enemy healers and also shows when your healers are in trouble.
DeadlyBossMods – an addon with many PVE functions, this will also show you timers for flag captures and the like in BGs and RBGs.
