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

This week, Blizzard turned the Warlords of Draenor alpha into the Warlords of Draenor betal, allowing more people access to test server stability. And the CtR crew was there to check it all out. Aside from lots of crashes and bugs, there were a bunch of changes to explore!

Tanaan Jungle, the entry point in the next expansion, appeared in the latest build. Khadgar, Thrall and others will test your meddle, unless of course you’re decked out in heroic gear from Siege of Orgrimmar. The guys will give you a glimpse into the action, and tell you what awards await.

Some players may be feeling left out in the cold in the beta process, however. The crew takes a look at some of the issues with the beta invite process, and takes you through the timeline as it appeared on Twitter.

Another sticking point for some players this week — faction capitals. Blizzard announced at Blizzcon 2013 that the faction capitals would be at Karabor and Bloodspire. But during the development process, and with the greater development of garrisons, the devs have changed their collective mind. While these cities will still be explorable, auction houses, portals, and all normal faction capital functions will be on the island of Ashran, just outside of the PvP zone. The guys give you the lowdown and their opinions on why Blizz made the change.

 

Plus, the new male human model arrives, Shadowmoon Burial Grounds preview, and a bunch of your questions. It’s another jam packed show, so hang on for another fun ride through Warcraft-land!
