Episode 27 – Tikari Talks!

It’s time, yet again, for another episode of Blessing of Frost! Our guest this time around is the newly-promoted-to-officer Tikari, a rogue who joined us in Apotheosis just before Cataclysm launched. Our General Chat topic consists of a discussion of the various hooks Blizzard uses to get us to keep playing, followed by why we’re still playing so many years on.

As noted in the post for last week’s podcast, Blizzard went out and immediately added Valor Points back into T11 content, shortly after we recorded the podcast. Hooray for being out of date?

Please note that due to Majik heading to Maine with his girlfriend and her family, there will be no podcast for August 2nd. We’ll return on August 9th, 2011! In the meantime, feel free to keep up to date with all the latest Apotheosis-related happenings at the Apotheosis website or Kurn’s blog.

Have a great couple of weeks and do try to stay frosty if you’re in the northern hemisphere. 😉

Episode 26 – Various Valor Point Vexations

After a mistakenly extended vacation from the podcast, Majik and Kurn are back with episode 26 of Blessing of Frost. Today’s show discusses the many issues with the Valor Point system and Kurn clearly has a lot to say on the matter.

Please bear in mind that this podcast was recorded before Blizzard announced they would put Valor Points back into Tier 11 content normal modes. More on that decision can be found here:
