If you don't quit whining about class balance, the Governator will come over to your house and impregnate your maid.

Welcome back listeners, to episode 19 of the Warcraft Lounge.

The Midsummer Fire Festival is in full swing.  You can get crazy guild rep just by honoring the flames, and desecrating the opposition.  Don't forget, there are also fires located in Northrend and Cataclysm zones to snuff.

Here is the bear, Arcturis, from Ryan's dreams.  While you're up there, why don't you grab Skoll, Gondria & Loque'nahak?

The 4.2 Patch Notes.  Damn, there is a lot to keep track of.

SONS OF BITCHES!  Looks like Blizzard is onto us!  Here's why:

With the release of 4.2 all Valor Points will be down-converted to Justice Points, and all Conquest Points will be down-converted to Honor Points. To curb the ability to sell items back to the vendors after the conversion for the higher currency, we’re instituting a new sellback policy for items purchased directly before currency down-conversions.Items purchased within the two hour window before the release of 4.2 will lose their ability to be sold back to the vendor when the realms are brought down for maintenance. No refunds will be granted for items purchased during this time, either by the in-game vendors, or our support departments.

As an example, I buy the Vicious Gladiator's Battle Staff at 2:30 a.m. The servers come down for the release of 4.2 half an hour later. Normally I would still have an hour and a half after the servers return to sell the item back to the vendor. With this policy change though, upon logging in my item can no longer be sold back to the vendor.

This policy is only in effect for maintenances that include currency down-conversions, such as the release of 4.2. To ensure you don’t purchase the wrong item with the inability to sell it back, we recommend buying well before the final two hours so there’s time to change any incorrect purchases.

For more information on the down-conversion please refer to: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2880562

Here is the Ghostcrawler blog regarding class balance, that got everyone's panties in a bunch.  I am pretty sure, on his last day of work, he is going to rip into the playerbase.

Courtesy of Ready4Raiding, here is a strategy video for Occu'thar. Watch it, learn it, watch it again.  Don't be 'that guy'.

Courtey os Learn2raid, here are the rest of the Firelands strategy guides.

Here is the skinny on the new policy for Arena Weapons Season 10 Conquest Point weapons will only be purchasable once a required minimum sum of Conquest Points has been reached during the current season. For example, Ruthless Gladiator's Pike costs 3400 Conquest Points to purchase. However, players must first earn a total of 11650 Conquest Points during Season 10 before they are able to purchase it. Season 9 Honor Point weapons will only be purchasable once a required minimum sum of Honor Points has been reached during the current season. For example, Vicious Gladiator's Pike costs 3400 Honor Points to purchase. However, players must first earn a total of 18500 Honor Points during Season 10 before they are able to purchase it. Once the minimum sum of points required to purchase weapons is reached, all available weapons can be purchased for their listed costs. The point requirement is not reset once a purchase is made.

Despite Ryan trying to be a better citizen of Azeroth, he keeps running into people who buy into the above philosophy.

Welcome back listeners,

This week our hosts discuss what they've been up to in preparation for patch 4.2  Ryan has become a Pokemon trainer, using Petopia's guide to rare and unique pets in Azeroth.   Chris has jumped guilds, and advises listeners how to deal with joining a guild that is far more progressed than you are.

Here are 2 of the pets: Ashtail & Olm the Wise

If you want to see complicated, here is the Elitist Jerks forum for Marksman hunters.  Keep this in mind, the next time some blowhard asshat tells you they can perform the calculations better than Elitist Jerks.

For those who don't believe it, here is the Baradin Hold where the hunter completely owned Pit Lord Argaloth.

Mount Alert: The Winged Guardian goes on sale this week.  Not for nothing, but it looks incredible.

Courtesy of the tireless work of MMO-Champion, here are the Firelands will feature 3 vendors, who all have completely different sets of gear.  Don't pick the wrong one, or you will be completely screwed. (No pressure)

Here is the Dev Watercooler blog where they do the post-mortem on Talent trees.  Let us know in the comments or on the Warcraft Lounge Facebook page, which 31 point talent you think is A) the best and B) the worst.

As always, the link to the Patch 4.2 notes.  (If you've been nerfed, tough shit.  Build a bridge and get over it.)

At Chris's recommendation, here is Learn to Raid and Tankspot.  These two resources will serve as excellent starting and ending points for the beginning, intermediate and hardcore raider.  Also, here is a picture of Aliena and a Papapaint audio clip.  If you haven't seen nor heard either...click you fool!

Thanks again for listening to our latest episode, you can get ahold of us on Twitter (@warcraftlounge) or on our Facebook page, and if you hop on over to iTunes and give us a 5-star review we'll mention you on the next podcast.

Regards,

Ryan [Lohrdook - Hydraxis(H), Dynam - Gilneas(A)] & Chris [Drakkmur - Hydraxis(H)]
