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

This week, the CtR crew sets their sights on patch 6.2, as more raid bosses get tested on the PTR!

Four of the new bosses for Hellfire Citadel were put up for testing, including Kilrogg and Gorefiend, which have some unusual mechanics. And while the mechanics are interesting, there may be something more interesting happening in the background!

The Warcraft movie release was moved back to June 2016. Does this mean that the film is able to contend with other summer blockbusters, and what are the pros and cons of such a move?

More information was released and revised for patch 6.2, including some cool new pets, profession updates, and yes… costumes for Pepe. Even the legendary ring was updated to reveal the new group proc and how it may upgrade over time. And we’ll give you the details!

 

Plus, the WoW Token hits the EU, more on the new Timewalking feature and what it means for 5 man content, your questions and so much more!

This week Blizzard put patch 6.2 on the test realms, and if you’ve been looking for more content, here it is!

The Tanaan Jungle will open, and includes a brand new raid tier with Hellfire Citadel. Archimonde will be the last boss of the instance, which brings up a couple of different questions. Will this tier bring in a storyline involving the Burning Legion? Will we see Sargeras? And on the other hand, what does this mean for the real world timeline of Warlords of Draenor?

Opening the Tanaan Jungle is only the beginning of new content. Players will be adding to their garrison with the new Shipyard, which will not only be the initial way to get to Tanaan, but will lead to naval missions as well.

A new Mythic dungeon difficulty was announced for 6.2, where players can tackle tough team content for item level 680 loot on a weekly lockout. But is reworking of current content a great catch up tool, or something that will be set aside rather quickly?

The Timewalking feature will also be coming to 6.2, where old school dungeons from previous expansions will be scaled to challenge players that have out leveled them in a new sort of “heroic” difficulty. Does this light the way for more scaled content, like Timewalking in old school raids, or will this “renewing” of old content be met with indifference?

Plus, more on the Legendary Ring (and it’s new proc), some BIG class changes for raiders in 6.2, and more in the jam packed episode of Convert to Raid!

This week, the CtR crew is joined by streamer and mythic raider Brutall!

The WoW Token hit North American realms, and after just a few days the market price is down considerably from the original 30,000 gold price set by Blizzard. Were players surprised by the movement, and is the WoW Token a “win” for all parties involved?

Blizzcon general admission tickets go on sale this week. Are you prepared? The guys break down the information and get you ready to hit your F5 buttons!

Also, a group is managing to 5-man flexible Blackrock Foundry difficulties, and are now 10/10 normal and getting into heroics. What does it take for groups like this to succeed?

Plus, Forging Gorehowl, building your own Shadowmourne, our deepest apologies, your questions and much much more!
