Episode 72 – Release-Related Ramblings

Posted: 22nd October 2012 by Kurn in Podcast

Welcome to Episode 72 where Majik and Kurn discuss the release of the Mists of Pandaria expansion and discuss a few things the community seems to really enjoy… and a few things the community seems to really not enjoy. ;)

Hotfixes for October 16

If you’re wondering about the whole “have some birds”/”have some bees” thing, go watch Round 2 of the Majik vs. Kurn Magicka death match. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8H5P9VVgSEc (warning, language NSFW)

And in case you missed how lame the Theramore Scenario was, witness Maj, Kurn and Mhoe doing it at 85. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QykkU0Ph64 (warning, language NSFW)

As a correction, Apotheosis is now actually 5/6 in normal Mogu’shan Vaults, having defeated Elegon on Sunday, October 21st.

Speaking of which, the WoW dragon Elegon is likely named for Ellegon, who is the primary dragon in the Guardians of the Flame series by Joel Rosenberg. (Spoilers abound!)

Cooking sucks right now, Kurn says. (Also, eff dailies.)

Beru talks about her disappointment with world bosses.

Vidyala talks about Pandarian experiences with Golden Lotuses and Valley of the Four Winds.

As usual, Maj and I turned to El’s Professions to quickly level inscription. (And El’s Extreme Anglin’ is a great site for all sorts of fishing news and info.)

Finally, MMO Melting Pot, as usual, has some great round-up posts you should read:

    I was listening to your broadcast and heard you talking about mote of harmony. There are two easy ways to get spirts of Harmony. One, near the flight master at the shrine of seven stars is a guy that will trade for spirit of harmony, 20 exotic leather, 20 ore, ect for a spirt of harmony. The other way is farming, if you lvl enough with the tillers, you can buy songbell seeds. these will give you one mote of harmony. Also you mentioned the chore of tilling, get enough rep with tillers and buy a plough from the quartermaster, and you and till two rows at once. You can also get a sprinkler system, and a pest control system that will water two row, and kill pests in two rows. But we will still have to kill vermin and birds. yuck. Hope you find this helpful

    arg, my name is slyfred, not slydred! damm my fat fingers!

    I was wrong about the vendor selling sprit of harmony for skins ore, ect, it is the other way round, give a sprit of harmony to buy 20 ore, skins ect. damm my dyslexia, lol. but you for sure can farm motes of harmony from songbells plants. so in theory, if you have all 16 plots of land, you can get three spirts of harmony in two days.

    Tired of me yet? just a note, darkmoon faire is coming up. you should be able to fish up motes of harmony, as well as ores, skins and cloth. dont forget to do the profession quests, a quick 5 points. That can be a big help lvling profs in MoP. So stock up on water walking potion now, while it is still cheap. Once the faire hits, the prices zoom up, if you can get it at all
