#112 - Convert to Raid: Flex Is Not LFR!

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

Convert to Raid is the podcast for raiders in World of Warcraft! Our panel of avid players will talk about the latest buzz in the game and how it affects the end game.

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

Zhug and Dairies welcome Jules Scott from Tauren Think Tank back to the show, and they have a LOT to talk about.  The race to world first is underway, and the pacing is fast! The first wing of LFR is now open, and do players need an adjustment on expectations for Flex?  Are 5 man dungeons no longer needed, or does Blizzard need to change up their thinking on what raiders really want?  And are the Legendary cloaks too powerful to ignore?  We'll attempt to answer those questions, plus: Dairies goes 13 of 28 in SoO, Jules loves her mushrooms, and Zhug works it on the mailbox for repair money, and much more!
