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!

This week, Treckie from the top raiding guild in the world, Method, joins Dairies and Pat Krane to talk about all of the new changes to Azeroth with the arrival of patch 6.0.2! Inside, the guys talk about some of the more interesting changes this week, including class balance (and Blizzard hotfixes), bugs in game, the leveling experience, and more. Siege of Orgrimmar has seen a huge nerf for Mythic difficulties, with record boss kills… so maybe now is the time for your team to hit this new difficulty! The add-on ElvUI was in the spotlight this week, as some code was discovered that could allow the developer to really change some players’ game. The gang will tell you what happened and what you should do to make sure it’s not affecting you. Plus, we talk to Treckie about Blizzcon, and how Method plans to defeat Midwinter in the World of Warcraft Raiding Panel! He reveals all of his secrets (not really) on how he plans to take them down in this exhibition/competition.    Also, Blasted Lands and UBRS, soloing legacy raids, where to get your class guides, your questions, and T-Shirts... but only for a limited time!

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...

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...

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 ...
