This podcast covers several subjects relevant to both the pre-launch 3.0 patch and the eventual launch of Wrath. This includes mechanics changes as well as gameplay and class synergy discussion. Voice quality and leveling is still a work in progress. Bear with us!

I always look forward to these podcasts.

Is there a way to normalize the sound? Lore is very quiet, and you, Cider, are much louder. But as always, a great discussion. :)

you failed to mention glyph of frenzied regen, it is probably the most important bear glyph of all, on 1st reaction i thought "what did you just say glyph of maul is terrible" but after re-looking at the glyphs and with the change to swipe i guess CC will not be that important so the maul glyph may be worth getting. Depending on who instances work out and how often i have to be in bear and be in cat for a given instance my third glyph will be mangle for when i have to go cat.

and yes awesome ending!

Regarding Lore's discussion of the crushing blow change, if for some reason a level 79 tank is tanking for a raid with some level 80 members, that tank will be subject to crushing blows. (I imagine 10-man Naxx is the most likely venue for this to happen) Just something to keep in mind.

Did you guys change something with the mixing? You both sounded very distorted from the usual sound quality.

We're using entirely different software. It sounded fine about 15 minutes before we recorded, but something changed between the full recording and the test on quality we had done.

Having had a chance to look at it again, next podcast I'm going to try something a little different.

about the defense crunch for uncritability when patch 3.0.2 comes out and we lose Anticipation Defense and defense rating on our gear, it is not completely unheard of is that resilience is a good way to cover the uncritability. It scales faster than defense does, a throwing weapon here, or a gem there can help a lot.

Oh and about the inscription thing, the PTR definitely has it there, trainable and working, so..... I'm gonna go with 100% sure that it'll go live in about 2-3 weeks with the patch. So those who want to power level through it, start collecting yourr herbs now, cuz it uses herbalism mats.

No problem. I didn't have a problem listening to the podcast, it just took a minute or two for my brain to conform to your new robotic voices.

Damn Cylons.

>>When the Paladin invasion failed, things looked grim. Lore turned to his robot army.<<

On a side note:
Nice podcast :-D

As an aside, I was really glad that you guys hammered on the topic about lose of defense. I compared my EH gear on live vs the same gear on Beta and I went from 517 to 464. :(

That was a pretty unique way to end an awkward conversation. I'll have to try that sometime. :)

Thanks for the last 2 podcasts in quick succession.

I love them. You guys are some of the sanest voices on the web in the wow world I know about, and its very refreshing. I appreciate all the control you exercise on this site too - keeps it nice & clean.

I'm so looking forward to being able to tank everything, and being able to choose our tanks based upon skill alone (assuming gear is up to par). You guys did a great & fair job covering the issue.
