Convert to Raid Presents: The podcast for World of Warcraft and other Blizzard Games!

This week, the CtR crew takes a look at a bunch of changes on the Warlords alpha that have some players up in arms!

Blizzard has removed active mana regeneration from the latest patch (6.0.1 Alpha), and healers are being forced into a more measured style of play. While the community reacts, the question remains on whether or not Blizzard thinks it’s sustainable for raiding in the future.

Several classes were hit by ability pruning this week as Blizzard figures out exactly what each spec needs to survive in Warlords. Some of the changes seem kind of extreme or random, and the gang gives you the details and their reactions to them. Look out druids and shaman!

Also, Blizzard is giving each spec a 5% secondary stat boost. This will not only to give players a little bit of protection from bad drops, but also to help players understand which secondary stats are best for them. But the crew is confused as to why it’s called an “attunement."

 

Also, the guys take a look at the latest mount to hit the Blizzard store, our latest experiences with heroic Thok, the changes to the Timeless Isle, and your questions in another very fun show!
