Apparently the part where Chris decides to take a vacation.
Welcome back to Episode 32 of the Lounge. Since Chris is away until the end of May, I decided to record a special solo Lounge, to tide you over until our late May podcast.
Ryan has some things to say about Halaa - We discuss how to get your War Talbuks with a little help from a friend.
Blizzard has released a new Item Restoration service - Is this a good thing for the game?
New Guild Perks announced - which perks are going away, and what are the new ones.
- The Doctor Is In (Level 10) - Increases healing received from bandages by 25%. Does not work in battlegrounds and arenas. Replaces Chug-A-Lug.
- For Great Justice (Level 20) - Increases Justice points gained by 20%. Replaces Happy Hour.

GoGoMount - For all you mount collectors, this solves the burning quesion: Which one should I ride?
Druid Symbiosis - Unbelievable. Simply unbelievable.
Great information from MMO-Champion, and one of their readers who translated this shit from Chinese to English.
Thanks for listening,
Ryan (Lohrdook - Hydraxis) & Chris (Drakkmur - Hydraxis)
The show is lots better with the two of you, but still okay solo. Enjoyed your tales of Haala…the jerk who wanted you to say “please” to stop being an asshole is just such a classic WoW idiot.
Going by memory, your microphone seems a lot more prone to pops from plosives (the burst of air that hits the mic when you say a word beginning with P, for example), and it seems to vary in volume a fair amount, perhaps as you’re speaking nearer or farther from it. There are a contraptions to help with the plosives.
It sounds like shared mounts will be going live with MoP, which makes a vendor/repair mount a much more attractive purchase. It’s not a necessity, but it can save you 20 seconds or more several times a day to vendor junk in your bags or top off your repairs. It’s handy to vendor stuff if you’re out questing or grinding for a long time, and in outdoor instances can avoid a delay when someone joins your random dungeon and says “drrrrrrr i have to go repair” or “hrrrrp i forgot poisons!” If the only difference between the 20k traveler’s tundra and (possibly) 75k yak is updated consumables/reagents, it’s harder to make an economic case for the yak, but anybody with a 100k gold should have at least the tundra. People blow 20k on an epic pair of slippers that will last half of a tier, while these mounts stay useful indefinitely.
The Argent Squire is a small human.
@Arg: Well I guess I was talking from the perspective of having the Tundra Mammoth already; I have so many tabards and cloaks and astral recall, and 15 min. hearthstones that getting to Orgrimmar has never been a problem. So the only thing I’ll be missing, which is updated water or whatever, I will have plenty of access to.
Maybe if I got the proceeds for being the repair mount, I’d consider the Yak. I’d rather spend my money on the JC mounts which are going to be super expensive…and there are 5 of them!
We are recording our regular podcast this Tuesday…just in time for the launch of Diablo 3!
You dont sound angry, just drunk. Sorry dude not one of your better recordings
