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!

For videos, audios, and all things CtR, join us online at converttoraid.com   This week Tattva joins the crew for WoW talk and more!   Not only is there a bunch of new stuff in the latest build of the Legion alpha like dungeons and hunter pets, there’s also more information on how legendaries will work (or more importantly NOT work) in the next expansion. Will these changes help make the raiding race more fair?   Other big news that just dropped is about how mounts effect the leveling experience. In the next expansion you will not be able to rely on your Water Strider mount to help you stay above the fray, as they will only work in previous content. More inside.   Plus, the history of Warcraft in book form, Overwatch and Heroes news, and much more in this fun episode!   You can follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/converttoraid or individually: Pat Krane -- http://twitter.com/PatKrane Dairies -- http://twitter.com/BoredMind Tattva -- http://twitter.com/LoS_Gaming
