Convert to Raid: The podcast for raiders in the World of Warcraft!

The guys are dressed up in their tuxes to celebrate the coming of 2013 with a look back on the best of 2012.  Not only will there be a countdown of our great production bits -- boss intros, songs, and the finale from Koltrane's Legendary Staff quests -- but we have Josh Allen stop by (Lore from Gamebreaker TV's Legendary), and all of the information we have on patch 5.2 which lands soon on the PTR. Tons of information? Check. Loads of fun discussion? Check. Incredibly weird and funny bits to savor before the new year hits? Check!  Looks like this show has got it all.  Enjoy, and happy new year from all of us to you!

While the guys wait for the end of the world (according to the Mayan calendar), they've got a lot to discuss! Koltrane talks more about the Arcane Mage, Solarflair levels his boomy, and Zhug shares a casually legendary tale!  Also, the guys take another look at the state of raiding in WoW, especially after all of the developer interviews in the last week or so.  Also, Elegon is on the chopping block, and the boys take you through the action blow by blow. Plus, it's the CtR Holiday show, so we have presents for everyone, including you!  If you'd like to win a Cinder Kitten pet, please head to for more information in the post for this show. Happy holidays, from all of us to you!

On this special episode, Pat Krane sits down one on one with Ion Hazzikostas, Lead Encounter Designer for Blizzard.

This week, patch 5.1 hit the live servers despite what Zhug said in the last episode, so the guys will take a look at some of the changes as they see them right now. They discuss dailies, dailies, and more dailies (now with flagged opposition), item level upgrades, the Legendary casual questline, the new standard time, and much more -- including the big changes to LFR and LFD, and lots of class changes too!  Plus, Zhug apologizes, Koltrane may dust off his 2 button keyboard, and Solarflair just tries to find the words.  Also, the guys take down The Spirit Kings in the War Room and give you the blow by blow and a ton more.  Hang on tight... it's gonna get freaky!
