How to play Wizard's Staff: Every time you drink another beer, you duct tape it to your "Wizard's Staff".  Each can represents a level, and every 5 levels you have to fight a "Dragon" (do a shot).  At any given time, the person with the most levels, can boss around any other wizard below them who has less levels than they do.  To initiate a wizard's duel, you must strike staves, and any beers that shake loose are lost 'levels' forever.


Welcome back listeners, to Episode 17 of the Warcraft Lounge.

Drakkmur's interview is finally up on Warcraft Econ's Hall of Fame.  If you're interested in learning more about how Chris made his gold, this would be the spot.

Nerfbat incoming for the current tier of raiding when 4.2 hits.  We don't talk about it that much (because by the time it happens we'll be too busy exploring the Firelands) but T11 content got AOE-nerfed.

Here's an example of how Wowhead can show you all the new items introduced to the PTR.

The Reins of Poseidus now drop off of Poseidus in 4.1  Mount collectors are on notice.

NPC Scan: If you want to find those pesky rare mobs, I can't think of a more useful addon.

Legendary what?  They have datamined Tarecgosa's Rest, the latest in a long line of legendaries soon to be immortalized in Trade Chat.  We give our take on how should get the staff, who shouldn't, along with making the case for one type of healer to get it.  Here is the article Chris liked, written by Scott Andrews of WoW Insider where he explores the thought processes behind handing out the staff.  (The comment section is particularly helpful, because lots of readers weigh in on what their guild is doing.)

Premium services are on the horizon, and everyone has lost their minds.  We have very little details about them, but we offer our perspective on exactly what Activision/Blizzard is really trying to do.  For those people on the forums who are convinced Blizzard will make money hand over fist and are interested in putting their money where your mouth is, here is a link to the chart for ATVI and TD Ameritrade.  (As mentioned in the podcast, here is the perspective on premium services of The Noisy Rogue.)

New loot list for Patch 4.2 (In progress) courtesy of MMO-Champion.  For the time being, just know the new Hyjal faction drops cloaks, belts, trinkets & rings.

Thanks for listening to this week's episode.  As always, you can find us on our Facebook page and Twitter (@WarcraftLounge).  We will give a shoutout to any listeners who give us a 5-star review on iTunes (not Podbean's page, although we do appreciate that too!) and if there are any topics or subjects you would like us to tackle, shoot us a line anytime.

The most politely hurtful thing you need to ever say.

Welcome back listeners to Episode 16 of the Warcraft Lounge.  In this week's Episode, we tackle all things Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub, including that pug-wrecking final boss of Zul'Gurub Jindo the Pugbreaker.  We review a couple other problem bosses like Nalorakk and talk about what players can do to make their groups more succesful.

Plus, money making tips for 4.1.  Is there another way to make money from Archaeology?

Hey DKs wake up.  Soulstones can be used on dead players, Warlocks.  Along with Shamans, you're officially on the clock as being responsible for having your new abilities ready.  (Spirit Link Totem + Baradin Hold Meteor Slash...)

Here is the Loot List for Zul'Aman and for Zul'Gurub, courtesy of Wowpedia.  Plan your runs accordingly.



Correction: Although it is apparently the intent of Blizzard to have items that are Needed be soulbound, it is not in yet. [Slated for 4.2]  The asshattery continues, although some are worth more than others and may be worth getting kicked for.  Just saying.

Thanks to Adam of the Noisy Rogue for taking the time to give us a review; we appreciate the candor and our listeners would probably enjoy his style greatly.  I even managed to find the review which drew me to his site in the first place.

Thanks again for listening; we appreciate all of your suggestions and comments on our facebook page, and on iTunes.   As always, any five star reviews will get you a shoutout on the next podcast and feel free to whisper us in game.  We're more than happy to talk.
