One of our hosts would like to apologize for not making it all the way through the show sober. On the other hand… this audible disaster does make for a whole lot of fun.

(Thes) Blue Post: Bashiok: Evolving Raid Encounter Difficulty
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2580598282?page=3#42
“It’s always been our intent to offer new raid tiers in Cataclysm that are difficult to provide challenge to the raiding guilds, and then gradually allow older content to self-nerf as people gear up through VP, and then eventual literal nerfs to the content. That’s something we’ve been communicating for some time.

Burning Crusade swung the pendulum one way, and Wrath of the Lich King swung it back too far the other. We’re attempting to find that middle ground “

Firelands Q&A
Q: A majority of T11 fights favored having little to no melee DPS. Will Firelands encounters fix this?
A: We see this to be more of a class issue than a role issue. Blah blah, PVP, we dont want to be hindered by set raid types… Yeah, there will be certain aspects of fights in firelands that will provide melee classes a chance to shine.

Q:Do we have any plans to include events similar to the Wrath Gate?
A: We have a short cinematic or two, but nothing on the scale of the Wrath Gate cinematic for 4.2.

Q: In Cataclysm, it has been hard to find unique raid mounts such as Siege Engines in Ulduar or Drakes in The Eye of Eternity. Can we expect to see battles using unique mounts or vehicles among the Firelands raids?
A: We were worried players might be suffering from a little bit of encounter vehicle fatigue. We’ll do it when it makes sense for an encounter, but we don’t want players to get sick of seeing fights on vehicles.

  1. Hi, can you tell me the name of the opening song?

  2. And the intro/outro music used in the last two shows is by/from….?

    (I apologize a little if this has been mentioned during either show, didn’t hear in in #78 and haven’t had time to listen to #79 yet. Should be in show notes, so only a little, though. :)
