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

Athaerick is back from his summer of fun, and the guys give big grats to the Convert to Raid lowbie raiding team, discuss the new team forming for Mists of Pandaria, and dive into all of the latest news from Blizzard HQ.  They even have a big discussion about LFR in Dragon Soul and try to analyze the good and bad, talk about the changes to LFR in Mists of Pandaria, and try to figure out if and how people may change up the way they use this raiding tool.  Plus, they take care of several listener questions along the way!

The guys discuss the latest news from around Warcraft-land, like the latest WoW subscription numbers, the raid schedule for Mists of Pandaria, and the latest update to the quest line for the next Legendary weapons.  Also, Preach (PreachGaming.com) stops by to give us the overview on every single class and spec on the beta!  If you have a question about which spec you should roll in MoP, you should get plenty of answers.  It's yet another show, packed with loads of information and a ton of laughs!

Koltrane returns for a fun filled show! The guys discuss the release date of Mists of Pandaria, Koltrane names his panda, Zhug debates which version of MoP he's going to buy, and Solarflair hears what a real English accent sounds like as Olivia Grace (WoW Insider) joins the show with fellow PVP aficionado Mike B. (Gamebreaker.TV) to discuss everything PVP.  From cataclysm and expansions past to all of the new Mists of Pandaria battlegrounds and statistics, we've got it covered on this week's show.  Very fun, tightly packed, and full of all sorts of knowledge you'll want to know!

This week Solarflair and Zhug pug in Jules from the Tauren Think Tank to help discuss the latest news and issues of the day, including PTR 5.0.4 going live, a funky green button on Battle.net, heroic raid testing on the beta, and even the illusive "nude drood!" We also break into the mailbag to answer a lot of your questions and give a little guide to new raiders wanting to pug into normals. Also... Blizzard has challenged us to challenge you, and we need your help!
