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:

Episode 72 Delayed

Just a note to let you guys know that Episode 72 was supposed to be recorded tonight (Monday, October 15th) but will instead be recorded on the evening of Thursday, October 18th, due in part to Kurn’s bronchitis. The amount of coughing she would have to edit out of the show would have taken WAY too much effort. πŸ˜‰

In the meantime, RATE US UP on iTunes, you slackers! And send us mail! We love mail for our MOLL-E segment. You can reach us at podcast [at] blessingoffrost [dot] com.
