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

This week marked the first public raid testing in the beta, and the CtR crew was there… kind of. When Blizz tried testing Gruul and The Butcher, the servers were having some stability issues. Many raid testers were outraged that something that is being tested as a beta had failed. Down servers added to the fact that the first two bosses released for testing have been a part of Blizzard games before sent the flames to the forums and Twitter.

On Friday, Blizzard was set to have more raid testing, but this came to a halt after a real life fire in Irvine shut down the power substation. While power was restored that morning, the developers postponed the test.

The patch notes for Warlords of Draenor revealed that Hunters will be getting Aspect of the Fox again, this time retooled into a 6 second raid wide cooldown! Feral druids are getting a little bit a love from the devs with a level 100 talent that can transform your cat into Saberon form. Thunder Cats are go!!!!

 

Also, we’ll have the latest news about Ashran, transmogrification for your weapon enchants, the new female Tauren model along with all your questions and so much more!

This week the CtR crew returns for another fun filled show!

The Heart of the Valorous goes live again, but why did Blizzard only make it available over a weekend and not during the rest of the week? And will valor caps increase any time soon so that we can upgrade more than one piece of armor per week?

Warlords beta patch notes have been released! The crew gives you some of the highlights and tries to calm you down as the game continues to be developed. The guys also discuss the feedback process for all of these changes and how that works with the communication from Blizzard to its players.

Want to know more about how your Garrison will work in Warlords? Wowhead.com recently posted all of their datamined information about garrisons, including an in depth look at the buildings that you’ll be able to choose from. How will these buildings help your gameplay? Are there any overpowered perks from these buildings? Find out inside!

Also, Rob Pardo, Chief Creative Director for Blizzard Entertainment, is leaving the company after 17 years. Where he’ll be moving to and why he is leaving are still unanswered. But while Pardo leaves the building, Mike Morhaime answered an open letter about (the lack of diversity) in Blizzard games. Is there a tie between the two?

 

Plus, leading the raid for mythic teams in Warlords, pre-release reviews, beta blues and Pat makes some BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS!
