#196 - Convert to Raid: Normals NERFED!
This week, Tattva (from LoS Gaming) and Sharku join the crew!   The face of raiding may be changing as Blizzard announced nerfs to 6 encounters on Normal mode Hellfire Citadel this last week. In some cases mechanics were tuned down so that casual guilds didn’t have to worry as much about personal responsibility as much, and on other bosses Blizzard removed mechanics altogether. Is this a case of tuning the encounter so that more people can see it, or could this be telling of what’s to come for normal mode...

#189 - Convert to Raid: Good Timing, Blizz!
This week, Blizzard announced a subscription loss of 1.5 million for Q2 this year. Hopefully this week’s expansion announcement at Gamescom will help keep the balance! Mick Montgomery (host of The Starting Zone, StormCast and more) joins the CtR crew as they tackle the recent sub loss and possible reasons behind it. Even though WoW remains the top MMORPG, there seems to be a lot of criticism over Warlords of Draenor. Do the numbers reflect a failure by Blizzard to hold a particular audience, or is it that ...

This week, CtR welcomes the guys from Line of Sight Gaming, Tattva and Tovo! In a recent interview, Cory Stockton (Lead Game Designer) announced that there were no more raids planned for Warlords of Draenor. If that’s the case, how long will we have to wait for the next expansion, and is there enough content in 6.2 to bridge the gap between Hellfire Citadel and the next expansion? What can Blizzard do to avoid another long lull between now and the next new content? Guilds are racing to world first in Hell...

#182 - Convert to Raid: No Flying... Ever Again???
This week, the gang is back for another romping ride through the latest news and opinion in World of Warcraft! Blizzard’s Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas is making headlines again, this time in a recent Polygon article. Hazzokostas announced that Draenor will not see flight at all, and this direction includes future expansions. Does flying matter if the developers can create meaningful flight points?

#181 - Convert to Raid: Is "Casual Hardcore" Still Possible in Warlords?
The CtR crew is back for some great discussions, so get ready! Since our last show, Blizzard announced a 2.9 million subscriber loss in Q1 as a part of their quarterly investor update.

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 on...

This week’s show leads to some very fun and controversial conversations… be prepared!

I'd love to hear why.” the CtR crew responds with an in-depth conversation trying to figure out what improvements WoW would have to make to capture the MOBA crowd and make PvP less of a daunting experience for players new to this aspect of WoW.

Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas and Community Manager Josh Allen (a.k.a. Lore) took to Twitch this week to talk about dungeons and raids in World of Warcraft. A lot of ground was covered, ...

Are there any possible solutions to this pe...

#171 - Convert to Raid: The Race to Blackhand!
Mythic Blackrock Foundry kicks off this week, as does the race to world first!

#170 - Convert to Raid: Blackrock Foundry Opens!

#168 - Convert to Raid: Blackrock Foundry Coming Soon™
This week, the CtR crew found out that Blackrock Foundry (the next raid instance) will be coming February 3, sooner than many players anticipated! While some are undoubtedly relieved to be moving on, is there concern that the beginning of this expansion is moving just as quickly as Mists of Pandaria? Or was Highmaul really supposed to be more of an introductory raid that would lead into the “real raiding” of Blackrock? There’s more information data mined from Patch 6.1 from the test servers, including char...

#167 - Convert to Raid: Patch 6.1 Hits the PTR!
The guys are back with a brand new show in the brand new year! Over the break, the last boss of the Highmaul raid was released in the Looking for Raid difficulty.

With about a month until Blizzcon and the next expansion for World of Warcraft, the CtR crew gets you ready for the 6.0 pre patch and beyond!

#156 - Convert to Raid: Healing in WoD!
This week, the guys at Convert to Raid learned that players will be losing out on some key items in patch 6.0.2 (coming soon™). For example, with the pre-patch, players will no longer be able to start the legendary cloak quest. And come the expansion in November, the cloak quest will be taken out completely. What does this mean for raiders, especially those switching their mains for Warlords of Draenor? Also, Justice Point Heirloom vendors will be taken out of the game for a bit as the brains at Blizzard c...

#153 - Convert to Raid: The Tank Squish!
This week, Derevka joins Pat Krane and Koltrane for a very fun show with news direct from the Warlords of Draenor beta! Tanks have been very strong in the beta so far, and according to Chadd “Celestalon” Nervigg’s recent post, too strong. To avoid “power creep,” tanks will be getting many of their abilities reduced in effectiveness, essentially making them more squishy. Of course this will be done for all tanks, and creature damage will be reduced to offset the issues. What does this mean for tanking and h...

#153 - Convert to Raid: Beta LFR is... LFR
This week, the beta continues to get a workout, and the CtR crew is tracking the action for you! LFR for Warlords got a first look on the test servers, and it was… LFR. Not quite what the developers promised at Blizzcon with “Tourist Mode," but they also mentioned that in this first pass it was probably overtuned. If the LFR doesn’t change significantly, however, how will that translate into how these different difficulties are used by WoW players? Mythic raiding also got a workout on beta, with 6 bosses ...


#152 - Convert to Raid: Rehash and Eggs!
The CtR crew is back, and this week we debate the latest big news from Blizzard!

But the Alliance bike will be available for purchase from a vendor, and no specific price tag was mentioned. While at Blizzcon, developers said that not all races would be reworked by the time Warlords was released, but they will manage to rework every race except for Blood Elves. With all of the artwork that is new and improved for WoD, can any...

#150 - Convert to Raid: Beta RAGE!
This week marked the first public raid testing in the beta, and the CtR crew was there… kind of. When Blizz tried testing Gruul and The Butcher, the servers were having some stability issues. Many raid testers were outraged that something that is being tested as a beta had failed. Down servers added to the fact that the first two bosses released for testing have been a part of Blizzard games before sent the flames to the forums and Twitter. On Friday, Blizzard was set to have more raid testing, but this ca...


#149 - Convert to Raid: Building Your Garrison!
This week the CtR crew returns for another fun filled show! The Heart of the Valorous goes live again, but why did Blizzard only make it available over a weekend and not during the rest of the week?

#146 - Convert to Raid: BIG Changes for Warlords!
This week, the CtR crew takes a look at a bunch of changes on the Warlords alpha that have some players up in arms! Blizzard has removed active mana regeneration from the latest patch (6.0.1 Alpha), and healers are being forced into a more measured style of play.

Was this a communication breakdown between the developers and the rest of the WoW community, did something go wrong, or is this “working as intended” according to the development plan? Blizzard has made the wait a little easier, however. This ...
