#203 - Convert to Raid: LEGENDARY

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, there's a lot more information being data mined in the Legion beta build, including a list of LEGENDARY ITEMS as well as Artifact Weapon talents! The list of Legendaries is quite long (56 at current count), and is split up between different roles, classes and specs. The guys go over what we know about them -- which isn't a lot -- and how we'd like them to be for Legion. What makes an item Legendary? How could the developers better capture the fantasy of these items, and how will these items affect players both personally and as part of a raid team? With many (but not all) of the Artifact Weapon talents now data mined in their very early stages, what do we see? How do these talents feel when it comes to basic gameplay options, and what do our players hope for Legion? Plus, more info on Gnome and Goblin Hunters, sign up for your free Moose, follow us on Twitter for free stuff when we have it, your questions and so much more in this very fun episode! Join the Bazoobagwabo Nation at converttoraid.com for videos, audio, our forums, guild information, tons of links for raiders and more! Follow us on Twitter @ConverttoRaid and individually: Pat - @PatKrane Tattve - @LoS_Gaming Gizmo - @Gizmozord Sharku - @Sharku_CTR

Blizzard released a whole bunch of WoW on the world, opening up the Legion beta for data mining and allowing streamers, friends and family to play an alpha build! The alpha build features the Demon Hunter and not much else, including character creation and the starting zone in Mardun. It's a throwback to Outland and has a familiar feel for those that have played through The Burning Crusade. This isn't much different from w...

Tovo from Line of Sight Gaming and Sharku join this week’s crew as we make that final push toward Anaheim! With less than two weeks until Blizzcon 2015, Blizzard HQ isn’t dropping a ton of news. But the news we do have is incredible, especially if you like esports.  Activision Blizzard (the parent company) is creating a new eSports Division in the company, separate from both Activision and Blizzard Entertainment games.

This week, there wasn’t a ton of World of Warcraft news, but there’s still a lot to talk about as we all get closer to Blizzcon 2015. Like Blizzcon 2015! The map and schedule for Blizzcon has been released, and there were a couple of notable things missing, including no live raid event. Is it the recent guild turmoil, no new raid to preview, too many other games, or is it that Blizzard’s focus is more on eSports? The guys discuss whether or not this is a significant move by Blizzard. Pepe has already made...

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...
