Mythic Blackrock Foundry kicks off this week, as does the race to world first! While there are returning favorites like Method, Paragon, and Midwinter, some teams have changed their rosters and upped their game to claim their spots amongst raiding royalty. The CtR crew lets you in on who are the surprises, and whether or not this raid tier will be finished by the end of this week’s lockout.

The CtR War Room opens its doors for the first time this expansion to take a closer look at Blackrock Foundry, but of course with this crew it’s gonna get weird! Get ready to usher out the young ones as Convert to Raid presents another reading of 50 Shades of Raid.

Hans’gar and Franzok are doing more than just trying to pound raid teams into the ground. They’re actually making players sick! Players are reporting headaches, confusion, vertigo and nausea from a combination of the moving conveyor belts and player movement. The guys will give you their take inside this show.

 

Plus, patch 6.1 and daily dungeon quests, WoD soundtrack nominated for another award, your questions and a lot more!

This week, raid teams raced to Gorgrond as the Blackrock Foundry raid instance kicked off in normal and heroic modes. Initial impressions are good from player reports, and the encounters have some good variety to keep all kinds of different players challenged. Especially the trash!

The guys go over the details, give you their opinions, and provide some key information that could be important for your team.

With the opening of the Blackrock Foundry, now raiders can finally get some Tier 17 gear in this expansion. But are the bonuses overpowered, or are they just “nice”? Plus, find out the worst part of the new gear (according to Pat Krane).
