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

This week the guys have very pleasant conversations about World of Warcraft as they catch up on their raiding progression and all of the latest news and views from Pandaria, including: The latest on the race to world first as they prepare to tackle the heroic Terrace of Endless Spring, the latest release candidate for patch 5.1 and what that means for WoW players everywhere, and they'll discuss highlights of the World Championship as it comes to a close... and more!  Laughs, drama, news, and maybe a question or two from you guys.

Thank you so much for listening!

This week, the crew takes a look at the latest news about the end game: Heart of Fear progression and the race to world first, loot as it relates to dailies and LFR for raiders everywhere, and we even take a look ahead to patch 5.1 and beyond. Solarflair and Zhug debate on whether it's okay to have a "pay to play" system for the Brawler's Guild while Koltrane is still recovering from last week's raid night.  Plus, Adobe from My Epic Heals drops by to give us some in depth tips and tricks for playing the resto shaman!  How do we pack in so much show? You be the judge!

Also. Please help those affected by last week's Superstorm Sandy by donating to the Red Cross!

This week, the CtR crew has another fun filled week of WoW news and entertainment for you!  A well known DK almost solos a Challenge Mode, Method speaks out about their #1 (25 man) heroic conclusion of the Mogu'Shan Vaults, 5.1 patch notes could be very interesting for some classes, and of course there are dailies, dailies, and more dailies.  We even have a great discussion on the loot systems in WoW and have a couple of ideas on how to improve them!  Solarflair steps up with his raiding schedule, Koltrane gets all hasty, and Zhug upgrades the CtR Command Center!

This week, the guys give you the latest in WoW news and entertainment, even amidst the various tech problems (which, thanks to the miracle of editing, you won't hear much of)! Paragon beats everyone to the end even though they're only a 10 man, patch 5.1 hits the PTR and the crew has some small spoilers, and The War Room makes it's triumphant return as The Stone Guard gets taken down.  Also, Zhug changes guilds, Koltrane steps in the goo, and Solarflair tanks a vicious Klaxxi in real life!

This week, the guys give away all the secrets!!! No, not really, but they do talk about reputation and dungeon grinding, Exodus being first to close the door on Mogu'Shan Vaults in normal mode, Challenge Modes, keybinding your spells and more... including a politician outed by her competitors for being a WoW player! *gasp*  Zhug makes an apology, Solarflair officially adds another raid team to lead, and Koltrane is having fun with his monk - Wokfu.  It's fast talking and high action on this jam packed show.  Check it out!

Mists of Pandaria landed, and Convert to Raid responds with a great big round of applause! We'll give you our first impressions on leveling, dungeons, the auction house, rep and gear grinding and so much more.  Koltrane was out sick, so we asked WoW Insider Olvia Grace to join in on the fun!  Zhug gets a special present, Solarflair goes on the air with no sleep, and Olivia still has yet to hit the level cap. Also, we'll get you ready for Mogu'Shan Vaults with a brief strategy overview. If you raid (and even if you don't), you can't miss this show!

This show, the guys are getting amped for the release of Mists of Pandaria, and are celebrating with a couple of awesome guests.  Ion Hazzikostas (Lead Encounter Designer) talks to Zhug, and the guys talk to Eatmopie about all of the different monk specs to get you ready.  But that's only a part of what happens!  Solarflair revives his hunter, Koltrane reveals how RAF will benefit his monk (Wokfu), and Zhug may be switching his raiding main after this week's Scouting Report.

This week, the news has been... brief.  But there's still a ton of things to talk about!  A top guild goes 10 man, the devs take to Reddit, and the guys get you ready for Mists of Pandaria with a pre-launch discussion of things you may want to consider before sitting down for a marathon session of WoW.  Plus, Solarflair may be saying goodbye to an old friend, Koltrane waxes poetic about Ulduar, and Zhug gives new listeners a look into what you can expect from the show once MoP drops!
