Covert to Raid #121 - Ghostcrawler Calls It Quits!

This week on CtR, Treckie from the top guild in the world (Method) joins Koltrane and Pat Krane to talk about the latest news and views from around World of Warcraft, including a big shake up at Blizzard Entertainment!

Greg Street announced that after almost six years as Lead Systems Designer he’s calling it quits and moving on to new (as yet undisclosed) opportunities.  The guys discuss what Ghostcrawler has meant to the WoW Community over the years, and Koltrane’s cat left some clues as to where he might end up.  Plus, the guys take a stroll down Memory Lane to their favorite G.C. moments.

It may have been a short work week here in the U.S., but Community Manager Crithto released a huge post on gearing and stats for Warlords of Draenor.  Will gearing be simplified for the next expansion, or will it be just as confusing?  The guys discuss some interesting developments and what it could mean for players at the end game.

A warlock from Russia (YouTube handle: Snowball) managed to solo Immerseus in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid instance!  Was this flawed design, or are warlocks that overpowered?  The crew weighs in with their opinions on having anyone be able to solo current content.

Treckie comes fresh from DreamHack Winter and gives some great insights on raiding in a top guild, including his views on Mists of Pandaria raiding and what’s to come for Warlords of Draenor.  And if you want to take your game to the next level, he’s got some stellar advice.

All of that and more on a very fun show!
