Aggregated reviews for 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.

Welcome back   (5/5)

So glad you’re back! You guys have been with me through some rough times, like when I couldn’t find my keys, when my 125 gallon fish tank shattered, etc, etc... Seriously though, this is the podcast I look forward to more than any other. You are my comfort food. Keep up the great work!

Welcome back Pat and Thyst!   (5/5)

I really missed the gang at CTR. Not like anything was happening between February and June...

Where did you go pat?   (5/5)

We need an update on when business will return as usual! I know this “yeeted” but would love to hear your high energy and passion for blizzard again. I miss you guys

Almost done   (5/5)

I’m almost catching up. Episode 71!

Great podcast for some, not so for others.   (3/5)

The show just isn’t for me anymore. Pat is fantastic but Thyst isn’t my cup of tea. To be fair, she’s a lot more tolerable than she was a year ago when she was trying to mount Pat on air, but with the addition of the incredibly unfunny Stats, it’s time to move on. I’m sure he’s a nice enough guy, but not for me. I miss the old cohosts, but it’s understandable that they had to move on, now it’s my turn. Thanks for the years of entertainment, Pat. Best wishes in the future.

Fun podcast   (5/5)

Hey guys, you should just call retail WoW “modern” if you’re looking for something inoffensive other than the word “retail”

Best effin podcast for classic context   (5/5)

Josh does an amazing job on this podcast with tons of guests. He’s responsive on Twitter as well. Love the interviews with John Staats and hopefully he keeps getting him in

Zayj   (1/5)

Lost its way. See other reviews. Agree with their take. Can’t listen anymore

Downhill fast   (1/5)

I really use to love this cast. They just don’t seem very informed about the current content and listening to Thyst is just too unbearable. (I won’t get into that, just read other comments.) Bring Koltrane back and lose Thyst. Start actually playing the game and bring your love of wow to your listeners.

CTR is back!   (5/5)

Thank you for going back to Convert To Raid and producing such great content.

Went downhill   (1/5)

Not what it used to be? As a podcast to give you news and updates, they seem poorly informed about the details. Usually haven’t read up on or experienced the topic on the table. Also the jokes are lame, even if you enjoy lame jokes.

Unsubbed because of Thyst   (2/5)

God she is awful. Moving on.

Thyst is the worst   (1/5)

Thyst ruins everything she touches.

Used to be my favorite WoW show   (1/5)

Dumb inside jokes and cringe worthy sex jokes killed this show for me. Once Koltraine left the show should have died. I like Pat..but the cohosts are terrible.

It’s been better   (1/5)

Pat is a great host but thyst could use a lot of improvement the sex jokes and pandering to how amazing blizzard is just ruins it.

Shadow Priest   (2/5)

Listened to you for years. Unfortunately, you guys don’t seem as funny as you use to be.

The podcast might have lost its shine.   (1/5)

I used to listen to this show week in week out a few years back. I took a break from online gaming and also from this podcast. I recently started playing online games a little over a month ago and have tried to enjoy this podcast like I did in the past. Unfortunately every time I try and listen to the show, I end up turning it off because I realize I’m not even listening to it. I think the host seems full of himself these days and the cohosts let him be the center of attention; whereas in the past the show was about World of Warcraft and Blizzard games in general and do a good job staying focused talking about the game itself. Just sharing my thoughts. I’m sure others might not agree with me (I’m in the minority) and maybe the podcast no longer caters to me. Maybe in a few months I’ll give it another shot. Regardless of my opinion, I hope others enjoy the podcast as much as I did in the past Cheers.

It used to be great until Thyst   (1/5)

Thyst is full of negative remarks nonstop. Even belittling classic players. I was a loyal listener but no more.

It's like Tina Turner said...   (2/5)

Things ain't what they used to be! This show jumped the shark years ago. The better hosts left. The format changed. CTR used to be a WoW podcast that fathered a WoW mega-guild. Now, CTR is a club that just happens to share its name with a second rate podcast. #VoteKoltraneIn2020

Cringe fest   (1/5)

Please tell your guest have sex before the show so they can get all the cringe sex horny jokes out b4 you start recording please stop the cringe

CTR FTW   (5/5)

CTR is the best guild in WoW!

Pat, please kill Sharku. Seriously.   (1/5)

Tried listening to the show after about two years away. Second voice I heard was Sharku. Deleted episode, unsubscribed, and went to write a bad review, only to realize I already had left one. Seriously, can we get a different cohost? Please, Pat, please get rid of Sharku. Love the show otherwise. Keep up the great work.

The Show is an Inside Joke   (2/5)

My main issue with engaging with this podcast is the shear amount of inside jokes the crew spews at each other. Poor attempts at being funny and references to other Blizzard games, albeit with the name Convert to RAID, make it frustrating to listen to. The last bit to add here centers around the mindset that all the members share - that being that Blizzard as a company is this beacon of all that is good and can do no wrong. They offer little to no objective takes on the decisions Blizzard makes. Just don’t bother listening, there are much much better podcasts out there.

Best WoW podcast /10chars   (5/5)

Super engaging and awesome crew. Love giz's irreverance haha

Show just not what it used to be...   (2/5)

I’m not pinning everything on the changes but lately it feels like this place is just a bunch of people that sort of play a few games here and there but mostly just sell you on why you should pay for some New blizzard service. The increase in polka-ey background music, the new self-important guest co hosts (looking at you, thyst) - it’s just too off topic too often. This used to be a Warcraft podcast and I guess I’m just salty that it changed so much / so fast. You know when it really took a nose dive I think... when dairies left. And that’s an odd statement in itself cause that Dude seemed like he didn’t want to be there for the last few times he was on. Gah, I don’t know... just really disappointed at where the show has gone. Pat was awesome and more and more he’s just sort of turned into a mouth piece for whatever new product blizz is hawking.

Tonight!   (1/5)

I used to like listening to his show. But I just don’t anymore. It would be nicer without pat I think. It’s annoying listening to podcasters who think everything blizzard does is the right thing.

Pat is amazing!   (5/5)

What can I say. This is the gold standard for what a blizzard podcast should be!

A great way to keep up with blizzard games   (5/5)

I like the new format. It’s an easy way to keep up with what’s going on with blizzard games, and I like hearing the opinions of everyone on the show.

Every Week It Is Awesome!   (5/5)

This podcast, with its heroic music to headbop to, is always fun to listen to! They cover the news in Blizzard, always with spunk and personality! -Frazley

Great entertainment   (5/5)

Always a fun show no matter what they talk about! Keep it up!!

It's good.   (5/5)

Listen to this podcast if you like blizzard games.

Convert to Sharkoo?   (2/5)

Sharkoo talks way too much. I usually turn of show if he is on. I would like to hear the opinions and news from the other hosts more than listen to him ramble.

Great blizz podcast   (5/5)

Consistently great week after week

Great Show   (5/5)

Always a great listen. One of my favorite podcasts. Its a shame they play Alliance though.

A dying podcast   (1/5)

This was an amazing podcast in its day (2011ish). While the game it follows has new life breathed into it each new expansion, the podcast simply continues to whither. These hosts just seem tired of wow more than anything.

Cheers love!   (5/5)

Longtime listener here, fantastic podcast, and super entertaining people to listen to while I'm at work on a 12 hour shift. Used to listen to this podcast while I served in the military and kept me up to date with WoW which kept me sane! Keep up the awesome work!

Not The Same   (3/5)

Without Koltrane offsetting the negativity and monotone droning from Dairies ithe the show is hurting. Pat even picks on Dairies when he doesn't participate in watching other content. Pat is great and does very well at maintaining postivity and flow. Honestly, dairies still needs to go. The new blood that's come in since Koltrane has been great. Love #DADJOKES! But since WoW is on the decline and the new format, I don't know how much longer I can hear about Heroes of the Storm and Neverwatch. It just seems like the filler for the show become the main attraction.

Keep up the good work   (5/5)

Great show, look forward to it every week

Great show   (5/5)

Thanks for the show!

Finally!   (5/5)

Been looking for months for a decent WoW podcast and I finally found it! I'm no casual but I'm not quite hardcore, somewhere in the middle. And these guys present everything in such a way that I can get my head around it. Also very funny guys. Just fun and informative. Love it.

Great!   (5/5)

Informative, fun, and funny!

*THE* WoW Podcast   (5/5)

It's still weird knowing Koltrane left over a year ago, and that hole in my heart was never filled again. However, it's still one of the only WoW podcasts I listen to and I can't suggest it enough.

10 out of 10   (5/5)

Nearly perfect...just needs more Koltrane!

The best.   (5/5)

Let's face it. This isn't the WoW podcast we deserve, but it's the one we need right now. The best WoW podcast (or just straight up podcast) on the internet. kickedtripod - John

Keep Fighting the Good Fight!   (5/5)

This Podcast is AWESOME! Long time listener and will continue. Keep on Keeping On!

Awesome entertainment, great hosts.   (5/5)

I've been listening for the past 2 years and they keep me coming back every week with great hosts, even the new ones, yes, even Shark. Dairies, Pat and the Los Gaming guys are a great addition. Former Death and Taxes player, and a classic raider. Thanks a lot for the show.

The best WOW podcast by far!!   (5/5)

I found out about these guys on forum post on the World of Warcarft website. I figured I would check them out. These guys make the show informative but fun at the same time. Always great info and always the best tips. Love the show subscribed and look forward to more great podcasts!!

Always a pleasure   (5/5)

one of my favorite podcasts and part of the reason I joined the guild -Zarkeh

Really enjoy the show   (5/5)

I love listening to the different personalities that come on this show. It keeps me informed and makes me laugh at the same time!

Too Bad So Sad   (5/5)

Amazing podcast, gets me through my day. Long boring days as a trash man. So sad to hear Dairies deleted his Overwatch account. Well I have to go a Ice cold Throwback Mt. Dew is waiting for me. Keep up the good work! Best Regards ~ Gnarly - CTR (take your pick)

Great Raiding Alliance Podcast   (5/5)

CTR is a great non-horde centered podcast. Very funny and informative.

Awesome podcast!! 🐗👍   (5/5)

Been listening to these guys for the last 6 months and love the show. Informational and funny!! It's a must listen to before raiding each week.

A Must Listen for WoW Players   (5/5)

One of the most enjoyable Podcasts for WoW to listen to. The hosts are engaging and while the show focuses on raiding, they seem to cover every topic from A to Z. A must listen to Podcast for anyone who plays World of Warcraft and even those who don't.

Thinner of Malorne Approves This Message   (5/5)

This may be the best podcast about World of Warcraft. Even though its focus is on PVE, there is still a lot of interesting news and discussion throughout each episode. I particularly like the regular flow of each episode and the way the cast of speakers get along with each other. It's all about the lewt. Thinner, 100 Combat Rogue Guild: Wicked

Not just for raiders   (5/5)

This is a professionally produced podcast that focuses on raiding. However, as someone who does LFR at most, I still find the podcast an excellent listen due to the quality of the show. The team also spends a chunk of time talking about the latest WoW and Blizzard happenings so it's worthwhile for non raiders. I would say it's one of the bestWoW podcasts (maybe the best general WoW podcasts - it's the best I have heard at least).

I like it a lot   (5/5)

Yes indeed

New listener   (5/5)

Great podcast filled lots of useful info and good laughs to boot!

Outstanding!!   (5/5)

I am new to listening to Podcasts and have listened to a lot of them. This is by for one of the best. Good information and funny too!! Highly recommended.

Welcome Home Raiders   (5/5)

Great show guys!! Entertaining from week to week. Keep up the good work!

Awesome Podcast   (5/5)

Thanks for your hard work guys. Awesome show every week! (Especially when Dairies is gone?)

Best podcast!   (5/5)

Love CTR!

Fantastic podcast   (5/5)

Great podcast it has been one of my favorite wow podcast and one of the only podcasts in general that I listen to regularly keep up the good work

These Youngsters Rock!   (5/5)

Everything about this podcast is upbeat. Pat, Koltrane and Dairies blend a perfect informative and comedic Mug of Rousing Coffee for this old player. Hey, at 64 I need all the help I can get!

Love you guys!!!!   (5/5)

Love the show, it makes my drive to work much more enjoyable. Keep up the great work and hope to see you in game 😁

Excellent WoW and Blizzard games commentary   (5/5)

I've enjoyed listening to yall. It makes me really miss raiding! You seem to capture the best aspects of WoW and I appreciate the ongoing commentary about all things Blizzard.

Convert to Listener   (5/5)


Best wow podcast   (5/5)

Of the many out there this hits the perfect balance of humor and raiding information. Highly recommend.

Great WoW Podcast   (5/5)

Very entertaining podcast. I look forward to it every week!

Excellent show for wow players!   (5/5)

This is the best show for wow players particularly for Raiders. Lots of come robbery and laughter it's a good feeling I like the host says beginning of the show, it feels like home.

Welcome home raiders!   (5/5)

Fortune cookie say - this podcast is fantastic. They are a great team and bring the information to the listener in a fun way.

Koltrane Rox <with the X means more>   (5/5)

CTR is a refreshing podcast where the guys have fun and are knowledgeable about WOW and have wonderful insight into the game. Continue to do good work Fellas

Only podcast I listen to!   (5/5)

I've never been into podcasts but Convert to Raid is the only one I will listen to. These guys are funny and very informative. I enjoy listening to them each and every episode!

Fortune cookies   (5/5)

Clearly a bazoobaguabillion Bongos !!!!!

Fun podcast   (5/5)

Good info, show moves along nicely and is more importantly fun to listen to. -Maddy Thrall US

Please   (5/5)

Just rename the show "Koltrane's fortune cookies.......and some WoW stuff". It's an amazing show, keep up th egreat work guys.

Find your raiding nirvana!   (5/5)

This is seriously the best WoW podcast available. I have no idea why it took me so long to find it, but I'm sure glad I did. It's informative without being stiff, and hilarious as well. Fortune cookie say: listen to the podcast!

informed, entertaining, succinct   (5/5)

this is the best wow podcast. hosted by modern-day, socially-functional nerds who are blessedly free of the seemingly prevasive tendency of other wow podcasters to ramble and whine. the hosts know what they're talking about, express themselves concisely, and make every effort to hit all sides of a topic. preshate-cha!

Best cast around   (5/5)

Can't wait each week to hear the guys and the new fortune cookie. Keep up the great work.

Impressed!   (5/5)

I really enjoy the shows. They seem to go so quick. What I wouldn't give for a daily show. Keep up the good work.

Newish watcher, love the show.   (5/5)

I turn on CtR as I'm relaxing for the evening after raid. It's a great way to catch up on the news, and I love checking out all of the fun banter between the crew. Loving the show guys, keep it up!

Great Podcast   (5/5)

Hands down the best podcast there is. I'm always looking forward to the next episode. Keep up the great work!

Fortune cookie say...   (5/5)

Convert to Raid is an amazing WoW podcast keeping me up to date on Warcraft news at work.

Great show and humor!   (5/5)

Love the show keep the ep. Coming fortune cookies say?!?! Ahhhh

Great podcast!   (5/5)

Excellent podcast, always entertaining and informative!

The Best Around (Nothing's going to eve keep them down)   (5/5)

Cannot speak highly enough about this podcast. I've been listening for several months and love all three of the casters as well as the content they bring. They truly are not only the best wow podcast but are in my opinion the best podcast period. Because I listened to this podcast I have decided to take up raiding seriously and have been loving every minute of it! Thanks guys you rock. Tistheseason Kel'Thuzad US

Da best out there   (5/5)

Koltrane is my fav:3

Well produced, informative, funny   (5/5)

The Convert to Raid Podcast is an extremely well-made podcast. There's never any dead air. When I'm listening to WoW podcasts, so many are dry and unscripted. CTR is polished, full of raiding info and blizz updates, and a weekly horrible fortune cookie quest.

Fortune cookie says...   (5/5)

Koltrane for president!

CtR, What a place to be!   (5/5)

Great Podcast! Great Guild! I've made so many great friends in this guild, and I owe it all to this podcast.

Holy raids batman   (5/5)

Well done on the podcast. But please NO MORE FORTUNE COOKIES, my stomach is full.

The premier WoW podcast!   (5/5)

CTR, for what it's worth, is the best wow podcast I've come across. You guys bring me the closest I've been to a 'Diggnation' feel, which has a special place in my heart for life. The relationships and fun you guys have make this the premier wow podcast, not to mention the wealth of knowledge brought every week. Thanks for this podcast, it's made wow podcasting worth listening too!! -Huntosaurus, Dranei hunter of 'At least we win AV', Shu-Halo

Keep it up!!   (5/5)

Awesome work guys

Raiding show FTW   (5/5)

Great end game raiding podcast for WoW. Keep things entertaining and fun to listen to.

your show   (5/5)

Awesome show this is Gadazlian from CTR Mobus and the 2nd was my Birthday

Incredible   (5/5)

Sometimes you can say to your buddies... THAT was incredible..., like when you listen to Convert to Raid! This show rocks. New fan listening to you guys from Dairies' hometown of serene Seattle. Keep up the good work guys!

Sweet   (5/5)

Sweet a** podcast. Incredible.

Informative   (5/5)

This cast is gerat for us that don't have the time to always keep up not only with the latest in raiding but with WoW in general.

Great Podcast   (5/5)

If you want actual news and good ideas for future game play this is for you. Great production value, info, and host that know the game this is it. Listen and enjoy.

Best ever!   (5/5)

This is by far the best WOW Podcast I have every heard! I have a 45 minute Commute to work and I spend that time laughing and shaking my head. Colt is Awesome!

Downhill since Dairies came on   (1/5)

Pat and Kolt are great and the chemistry they had with Solar was good. The chemistry now with Dairies just isn’t there. He sticks out like a sore thumb with his negativity and can come across as rude. You guys have a great thing when all is said and done but you took a step back and I don’t see this show progressing with Dairies.

Mah Favorite WoW Podcast   (5/5)

Awesome podcasters, great content, love dem' cookies... What can I say? If you have any interest in WoW, or more specifically, raiding, give these boys a try. You will love it!

Best WoW Podcast   (5/5)

I’m a WoW addict and I only listen to CTR and The Instance. Both are fantastic, but I like to raid and CTR is the best in terms of combining both entertainment value and talking about news/ class changes/ encounter mechanics/ game features etc… Love these guys.

Love me some convert to raid!   (5/5)

It is great to have found this podcast. If you are looking for a fun, and informative, podcast on WoW and raiding this is for you!! Enjoy!

Nice   (5/5)

Koltrane makes my knees weak and my liver quiver.

Great Source for Information!   (5/5)

This podcast has more than just raid information (Although it is primarily about raiding and classes). The hosts and cohosts will keep you up to date with all news, WoW related. The jokes never get old and the content is tastefully delivered. 100/100 bongos for Koltrane and his fortune cookies! :)

Thank you guys!   (5/5)

Searched many wow podcasts with my return for Warlords. This one sits at the head of the table this holiday season. A very nice mix of facts and opinion on everything new in wow. Could listen everyday. Keep up the great work. For the Alliance! (Hellak, Crushridge)

Favorite WoW podcast.   (5/5)

Love this podcast. Find myself laughing from the fortune cookie to bailing on the music. Never miss a week.

Loving the Podcast!   (5/5)

Always listen to you guys as you are all very entertaining and good to see people my age having a good time doing the things they are passionite about. Moving back to the US in March of 2015 so decided to join up with CTR on Aerie Peak. Woo! See you all ingame.

Thanks   (5/5)

Thanks for the wonderful podcast. Nasilsin - CTR Emeriss

The best wow podcast around a must listen!   (5/5)

If you're looking for a one stop WoW podcast or a just a bunch of them, then look no more CTR has it all, this is a must listen if you only have time for 1 or a must add to the collection of podcast you listen to if you're not checking it out then youre really missing out there's nothing bad I can say about This podcast!

Love the show   (5/5)

Was just recently told about the show and now I cannot get enough of it! Your show reminds me of the interactions I have with my guildies but still considering a realm change to join the CTR community.

Awesome Show   (5/5)

Great show guys!! Loved all the input for how to gear up in WOD.

Great show!   (5/5)

Keep up the good work guys. Keep those fortune cookies coming. 100 out of 10 bongos!

Eshelon of team Face Pull   (5/5)

Best wow show out there. Best community. Best way to experience the game. Shoutout to the Entire FacePull team!

You keep making it...   (5/5)

...I keep downloading it. Keep up the fantashtic work! You guys rip on Kol too much for his fortune cookies though. Give the poor guy a break. :-)

Keep on Keeping on...   (5/5)

Amazing show as always. Listening to you guys again brought me back from my WoW hiatus. Shout out to all the CtR guildies, and my Sparkle Motion raid team members "Never doubt our commitment!” Next stop WoD!!! Kannon, Convert to Raid - Sha

CTR or Bust!!   (5/5)

This is an extremely entertaining and informative podcast, but it's the fortune cookies that take it to the 5 star level.

Love it!   (5/5)

Best WoW podcast out there! Wish it were a daily show instead of weekly! Keep up the good work!

Easily the best WoW Podcast   (5/5)

This show is amazingly entertaining, and I look forward to listening to it every single week. I'm not even playing WoW anymore, but I still listen to the podcast to stay current until WoD drops. Koltrane makes the show without a doubt, Kol 4 Prez. Pat leads the show extremely well and you can tell he has some serious experience as an audiophile. Ares is slightly eliteist, but his attitude and ideas add alot to the discussions. Thanks guys!

Fortune Cookie Say...   (5/5)

Come for the fortune cookie, leave with awesome WoW info and updates! Love the hosts and the guests they bring from time to time. It all meshes together very well! My only beef is there is only one a week (I know with content thats all that can happen, but I want more!)

Fortune cookie says   (5/5)

This show is very punny! That one guy from Seattle has a voice like Kristen Stewart's face. 10/10. Would listen to again.

They Got Hazzikostas!!!   (5/5)

Oh man I've been listening to this show forever, but once I learned Ion Hazzikostas was going to be on the show, I had to write a review. You've hit the big time fellas!

Good Stuff   (5/5)

I just found this podcast recently and I have gone back through all the previous episodes. I'm hooked. I love the show. I think Dairies balances out Koltrane, and Zug keeps them both level. Just my thoughts. Keep up the great work!

Dynamic Trio!   (5/5)

I love the interaction and banter between the hosts, and all the while I get to hear their takes on the current happenings in WoW. Keep those Fortune Cookies coming, Koltrane!

boom.   (5/5)

One of the best podcasts for WoW for sure. Well produced, funny, and Koltrane has the voice of an angel. If you love bad jokes & raiding, you're in for a treat.

5 stars!   (5/5)

I laugh at every single fortune cookie that is brought out. Love them. The podcast is really enjoyable and for someone who hasn't been progression raiding since end wrath and looking to get back into it in warlords. It's a good listen for all the good updates! Thanks for the time and effort you guys put into this it's awesome!

Welcome home raiders   (5/5)

If you love Warcraft raiding you'll love this bright and well engineered show. The cast will always bring a smile to your face. Krushe - Sha

It's a SHOW, and it's GREAT!   (5/5)

I do my best to catch the Live show Sunday morning, but I STILL download and re-listen to the podcast every week. The humorous bantar is worth a second listen. Keep it up guys!!

Derevka   (1/5)

I can't believe they have him on the show again. This is the guy who made a derogatory comment once (on this same podcast) about welfare because he's an elitist. These podcasters will befriend anyone who they think will get them more subs. I'm glad to see Pat has great integrity. I'm done with CTR.

Great but flawed   (4/5)

The show is a great WoW podcast. The content is top-notch, and always very informative. This is all great, and that, but the one major flaw in this podcast is the same that has infected The Instance: the people. Koltrane, Dairies, and Pat Krane know what they are talking about. They are all experienced, and know the difference between CC and Si, Si. But, unfortunately, Dairies seems like he would rather be ANYWHERE else than doing this podcast. Koltrane has way too much energy. He seriously needs to fricking calm down. And Pat Krane. Well…he is a good frontman, but his laughing seems a bit forced to be believable. All in all, this is a very good WoW podcast, and should be listened by everyone. (BTW. The Instances Scott Johnson seems like he is getting tired of recording his podcast. Well, after 300+ episodes, anyone would feel like him.)

I love being jealous   (5/5)

I listen every week and enjoy every podcast. Though since all my toons are on non-CtR servers I, sadface, must live vicariously though the community. That though never stops my love of the show. #CtRAllRealms

Korkey, aerie peak, US   (5/5)

Awesome podcast, wether you play wow or not, these guys are awesome. Fortune cookie says: 5 star review

Best WoW Podcast   (5/5)

I thoroughly enjoy every episode, even the ones on the slow news weeks. Koltrane is always classy and Pat is entertaining as well. Dairies inclusion as the pesimist of the group is also a great dynamic for the three hosts, giving some great advice as well as a counter to Koltranes forever optimistic outlook. I love the guild advice and many of the mini segments. Good job, guys.

Lore was right!   (5/5)

About a year ago now, a few of the WOW shows that I listened to weekly went off the inter-webs, due to the host moving on to bigger (and Blizzard) things. I struggled to find a new weekly podcast that I found both entertaining and informational. Some were good, but none really had that "awe" factor that kept me coming back week in and week out. In the mean time I all but stopped playing. Even though i was (briefly) unsubed, I always looked forward patch notes, expansion rumors, ect. Back in April, I want to say, I had been watching an archived (youtube) episode of The Weekly Marmot, or maybe PST, can't remember which. But Josh had recommended and mentioned Convert to Raid. (I recall him doing this quite a few times looking back). So I decided to see if the show was still going and check it out. Well I am still listening, and you have brought me back to looking forward to listening to a weekly podcast. I enjoy your show and I enjoy the chemistry you guys have with each other. In doing so, you have, to an extent, rekindled the "magic" of the game to the point i have resubed, and am leveling a few characters in preparation for WOD. I have even considered raiding, even though I WAS an avid PVP'er. Though I am sure my computer will need to be upgraded to be able to handle the new graphics, I am looking forward to WOD, and I very much enjoy your so, yes even the fortune cookies! Please keep up the superb work, and Thanks!

Highly Recommend   (5/5)

Great blend of entertainment and information! Dakotabear/Savvydruid US-Uther-Alliance

WoW fix at work   (5/5)

Great show! Love the chemistry between the guys. Unlike some other WoW podcasts, these guys obviously do their homework, prepare for the show, and don't stumble over each other. Thanks Pat, Dairies, and Koltrane! Keep up the good work. Celph (Self) @ Spirestone

Awesome!!   (5/5)

My favorite podcast for all things WoW. I never miss a week.

Hooked   (5/5)

Started listening about a month ago. I have since gone back and downloaded old shows just for the listen. They help keep me up on my drive to and from work. Keep up the fortune cookies! Midionor-Blackhand

I love the show   (5/5)

Great show   (5/5)

The amount of coverage that you guys have is amazing. Love that it's to point every week and if I'm away from a computer I don't have to worry about something I missed.

Entertaining Podcast for PVE content in WOW   (5/5)

The crew here unserstands its content and the audience. Never short of laughs and a good time, also providing great insight and up to date news for World of Warcraft PVE content.

The Only Reason I Get up out of bed on a Monday   (5/5)

Pat Daries and Koltrane are the only reason I wake up on Mondays. Thanks a ton!

Awesome   (5/5)

Used to be a hardcore raider in wrath and cata quit the game and recently certain back, great guys to listen to and only one of two podcasts the other being the instance where the guys actually seem to enjoy the game makes me wanna put my raiding cap back on and strive for greatness

Amazing Fortune cookies   (5/5)

Keep the Fortune Cookies going!

Phenomenally entertaining   (5/5)

So glad I finally found this podcast. These guys are hilarious and deliver a wonderful mix of entertainment, goofiness and core WoW information. These guys have a wonderful chemistry on air and have created the best WoW podcast I've heard to date. Keep it up!

Inflammatory Opinions Man   (5/5)

They say they read their 5 star reviews on the show, but I know this one will never make the cut: The content is good, but HOLY GOD is Koaltrane annoying. He sounds like he’s trying to imitate Ron Burgandy the entire time. When he’s talking normally he sounds like a regular guy, but every time he tries to be funny here come Ron Burgandy voice. God, it’s annoying. This podcast cannot even begin to compare to the instance. Turpster alone is funnier than all of these guys put together. That being said, it take a solid 2nd place behind The Instance.

Simply awesome   (5/5)

Great way to stay up to date on all things Warcraft and stay entertained at the same time. This is a must podcast.

Great Cast   (5/5)

I love the show and am listening to all of the podcast one at a time while i am driving down the road. I love the fortune cookies!!!!

:D   (5/5)

Without this podcast, I may have never learned about oqueue! For that and much more info, thx CTR!!

An amusing weekly WoW show   (5/5)

"Fortune cookie say..." "Oh boy." That aside, this is a good hour and a half for catching up on WoW and alpha news of the week. I'm usually sleeping during their early Sunday live broadcast, so I iPod it through here.

Amazing   (5/5)

Can't get enough of koltrane's "YEEEEESSSS"

Best WoW Podcast   (5/5)

Love the show! Been listening for a while now, and among other WoWpodcasts , this one is the clear winner. Various perspectives offered on many topics. I wish there was more going on in WoW currently, but you can always safely guarnatee when news/updates are offered they will be covered here!

Truly enjoy this podcast   (5/5)

Been listening for months and I really do enjoy these guys. The fortune cookies are great, many bongos given. :) It’s fun, informative and even though WoW has been around for years, these guys make it sound new and fun.

Fortune Cookie Say...   (5/5)

I really enjoy watching this podcast and hearing a professional opinion about new and current content! No screaming back and forth (except Kolt yelling "what?!") It took me a while to get into the show but recently I have been watching and waiting every week. Keep it up and hope to see you all in-game or mumble sometime!

Great Podcast!   (5/5)

Enjoyed the cast all the way from Finland. Glad Koltrane enjoyed it here! More Fortune Cookies please, maybe two an episode?

More Fortune Cookies   (5/5)

I listen to 15 Blizzard related podcasts and this one is my favorite. Why, you ask? Fortune Cookies! Koltrane is the best. I make my Guild (Vision on Anvilmar) groan every week. Keep them coming! Rokkmarr 90 Dwarf BM Hunter, Vision Guild on Anvilmar

Awesome stuff fo show   (5/5)

Love listening to the show, helps me start my week off just right.

Great WoW Podcast   (5/5)

I used to listen exclusively to The Instance for my WoW podcast needs, but that show has seriously declined in my opinion as time has gone on. I happened upon Convert to Raid and I must say, I have been very pleased so far. The hosts are all clearly knowledgeable about the game and their take on the week's news is always a pleasure. Keep up the good work!

You guys rule   (5/5)

I love the show guys! Even if Daries is a buzz kill. Mr Koltrain makes it all work though, it helps that he reminds me of Ron Burgandy. Thank you for all the hard work, you guys are awesome and make my Mondays epic.


Started listening a couple months ago and didn't look back. Best WoW podcast out there. Helping me keep interested in the game too. Good job guys! 11/10 for sure.

Truly refreshing, quality content   (5/5)

Pat, Daries, and Coltrane have a great chemistry and keep the show always feeling exciting and unique. I really love the guest hosts and wish there was a way to get Slootbag and Trekkie on in a more frequent role because they bring so much energy to the show.

CTR   (5/5)

Awesome podcast Zhug. Between you, Dairies and Koltrane, you have not only kept me entertained since you were raiding with Good to the last drop, but you have also helped our guild with a lot of raid lead strats and tips to make play much more enjoyable through end game content. I have also incorporated Koltranes fortune cookies as a pre raid laugh/faceroll. Keep up the good work guys. We appreciate what you do. From all the slackers at Professional Slackers on darrowmere. Leucian@darrowmere

Best of the general WoW content podcast.

Great for new raiders!   (5/5)

These guys always do an excellent job breaking down the World of Warcraft news, and are an excellent resource for anyone who wants to get into raiding in WoW! Keep the fortune cookies coming!

Was a five star   (3/5)

Was a great podcast that i looked forward to but ever since daries came on the show with his more serious kinda of arrogant attitude toward wow and raiding and general topics just kinda of sour the fun and enjoyment of listening to the show and i will just shut it off depending on dairies attitude that week Bring back solarflair!!!!!!

so sad when i have to miss it   (5/5)

I have recently had to work on Sundays and was unhappy to have to miss the live show, I am really glad that its available on itunes the next day!!

Love it!   (5/5)

I've been watching Legendary for a few years. just started listening to this. didnt realize how good of a show it is. Great work guys!!!!

Love this show!   (5/5)

Fortune cookies are the best!!!

Dynamic trio captures the essence of WoW raiding!   (5/5)

This is a "must see" show for anybody who's ever raided in WoW!!! Pat hosts a formidable cast that shines a light on all aspects of raiding in the Warcraft universe. Koltrane and Daries bring to life the contrast between casual and hardcore players as it often plays out in game. I find myself relating to and wanting to bolster the arguments of both players! There's no other podcast for raiders in the World of Warcraft, period. Keep up the great work fellas!

One of my two...   (5/5)

One of my two must-listen to podcasts every week (the other being Legendary). It has excellent news and topics regarding the overall state of the game while teaching you how to become a more successful raider. Can not recommend enough. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I hail from MSP along with the "CtR Headquarters" :-)

Great show!   (5/5)

Love the show and listen to every one. Especially the legendary quest! You guys make work easier and I can learn a thing or two about raiding while I'm at it. koltrane great fortune cookies sir! Keep them coming we all know pay loves them.

Easily the best WoW podcast   (5/5)

They don't spend a ton of time talking about 'what i did in WoW this week'. Production is top notch and they give great information on various topics. These guys are humble, down-to-earth, respectful, funny, and just love to have a great time. Easily the best WoW related podcast around.

Awesome!   (5/5)

Fun, professional, and enjoyable resource for WoW. Thanks for good times!!!

Awesome Show!   (5/5)

CtR is one of the most entertaining WoW shows around! The guys cover useful information while making you laugh! Highly recommended!

They help me keep up with EVERYTHING WoW :)   (5/5)

The show is GREAT! I can always count on the guys to keep it fresh, funny, and family friendly. If you are a raider, or want to be a raider, or just want to keep up on WoW news, along with brighten your day, Convert to Raid is the show for you :) -Panduhh :)

GG   (5/5)

Great shows this year! Thanks and God bless.

Fun and Professional   (5/5)

An excellent podcast for raiders in the World of Warcraft, and great fun even for those who don't raid. High production value, great host chemistry, and an impressive round of guests. Always in my top 5. "Fortune cookie say..."

Best WoW podcast   (5/5)

I listen to you nut jobs every week on the way to work. You get me through the week. Keep up the great work!!

The Go-To WoW Podcast   (5/5)

I can't get enough of the Podcast! I've found myself daily updating in the morning just to see if they're giving out a bunus episode! This podcast is where I go for all of my WoW news and is the reason I got back into playing the game - everyone keeps the excitement going in a great way!

Not just a great show.. but a great community   (5/5)

These guys are awesome. Can't speak highly enough about them. Also... Hello... Koltrane...

5 stars!   (5/5)

This is a fantastic show from guys with really good chemistry! It is very entertaining for anyone who likes World of Warcraft

Professional, smart and funny.   (5/5)

Great show. Pat keeps the show moving, it rarely gets bogged down and topics do not get over analyzed, but still thoughts are discussed in a intelligent way. Kolt brings the funny and a good opposite to Daries. The interplay between the hosts is genuine and you can tell they are actually listening to each other, something a lot of shows do not do. Highly recommend this to all WoW players and aspiring podcasters . This how it is done. I would give six stars if I could.

One of my top 3   (5/5)

I've played WoW on and off since beta. I never stuck with it long enough to get to max level or experience the full amount of awesome that was to be had. I always loved the idea of the game, but didn't have any close friends that played a lot and so would lose interest and jump to a different MMO before coming back. About a year ago I really got into the game again. I decided to look beyond the game and started listening to some podcasts. This is one of the podcasts that I fell in love with and it helped give me the sense of connection and community to the game that I was lacking because of my lack of RL friends playing. Since then I have finally achieved a max level toon (Troll Balance Druid), joined an awesome guild (The Wayfarers Coterie on US-Cenarion Circle-Horde), done some raiding, and generally finally found what I always thought was waiting for me in WoW. Keep up the great show and thanks for the motivation to finally get to end game so that I could experience raiding. :) (Similar reviews will be popping up on the other 2 podcasts that complete my top 3.)

The Personal Touch   (5/5)

We CtR guildies and fans of the show feel like we know you guys already, but being able to interact with you all at BlizzCon was truly a treat. I was happy to be able to thank you in person for starting this guild and to let you know the positive effect it's had. I would not be raiding, let alone playing, were it not for this guild and my guildies, many of whom I know will be lifelong friends. Thank you again! @Devlynne_CtR

I don't play WoW   (5/5)

I do not play wow. I haven't played it for about six years. However, I enjoy this podcast even though I have zero idea what the heck these guys are talking about half the time. They still make me laugh for the most part and that is pretty good.

Fortune Cookie Say...   (5/5)

One of the best WoW Podcasts out there. Pat, Koltrane, and Dairies are an amazing combo. They have a chemistry as good as the guys on Top Gear UK. This podcast is so awesome you'll want to punch your momma in the face.

The best   (5/5)

After returning to WoW, these are the first people I listened to to update myself on the game. Such a great show.

Great, Great Show!   (5/5)

If you love to Raid in the World of Warcraft, then this is the podcast for you! It's so helpful! I LOVE IT. Thanks guys! I look forward to hearing CTR each and every week!

Great Podcast   (5/5)

Great Podcast! Koltrane is hilarious. You guys have a great combo: noob(koltrane) casual(Zhug) and hardcore(Dairies). Great info on end game without being too serious

Ian Townson   (5/5)


Thanks guys!   (5/5)

great podcast   (5/5)

Love the podcast, its helped me to get to the end game and make it more enjoyable to heal and dps.

Greatest endgame podcast EVER!!!   (5/5)

I have now been listening to this podcast for around 6 months and I never miss a show in my opinion it's the best endgame raid podcast out there and it has helped me become a better raider since coming back to wow after a year off. I will keep listening until they stop casting and just a shout out "fortune cookie say"

Spicy Water!   (5/5)

I just started listening to WoW podcasts and this is number one. I look forward to my 45 minute morning drive to work with the CtR guys. You all do a great job in keeping things interesting for us that can only LFR for now and strive for flex. Thank you for that. I was laughing my end off with this week's episode and realized that I too like to spend most of raids drinking spicy water! Koltrane - we could be best raiding friends! Fortune cookie says...!

Fortune Cookie Say...   (5/5)

I love this show, the only reason I listen is for the fortune cookies, there is basically no reason to listen to the rest of the show after it, but I do anyway because I'm obligated jk love the show guys, good job and keep it up

Love it   (5/5)

Koal-train's corney jokes make me cringe, but also brighten my week. Daries is a bit of a tool... but 2/3 hosts are awesome :)

Great Podcast..Always one of the first downloads for work every week! Keep doin what your doin!

My new favorite source of WoW news/info   (5/5)

BUFF MAGES. you guys have become my daily doze of happiness. I am a new raid leader and listening to you guys has helped me so much with forming the core raid and knowing certain things to be a good leader. So thank you. Also Kol's fortune cookies are so funny. Have fun at Blizz Con!

LFM CTR FTW   (5/5)

Awesome show!   (5/5)

We're up all night til the sun, I'm up all night to get some, I /roll to get lucky!

Pat Krane for Horde Warchief   (5/5)

The production of this podcast is at a level higher then most. The information, debates, and comedy keep me going for the 1.5 to 2 hours of entertainment. Not only has Convert to Raid delivered an excellent show, but also a large community of like minded Warcraft players. These gentlemen's talents and walks of life mesh so well; it's like pairing Rogues with Stealth, Warlocks with Demons, Paladins with Bubble-Hearthing. If this is your first WoW podcast, or first podcast in general, this is a must have to subscribe to. I'm more excited for Zhug, Koltrane, and Dairies weekly discussions then 5.4 dropping. Keep up the excellent work CtR! -Fearlocked, Demonology Warlock, Wrymrest Accord - Reported for Awesome

Legen...wait for it....DARY!!!!!   (5/5)

Just started listening to the show a few weeks ago, and I must say you guys rock! Having recently started back playing a few months ago, your show has helped me get caught up on some things I missed as well as inform me of upcoming content. Keep up the awesome work guys! (Hunters rule)

Great WoW Raiding-Focused Podcast   (5/5)

This show is great for raiders of all kinds from very casual to hardcore types. This show covers all things involved in the raiding community from interviews with top raiders, players who are great at their class, developers and more! The hosts are very funny, have great chemistry and the production quality of the show is top notch as well. I would recommend this show to anyone who is interested in raiding, regardless of the level at which they raid.

Love the podcast!   (5/5)

Just found this and think you guys are great! Funny and informative. Also, thank you, Koltrane, for mentioning the left handed Razer Naga. I didn't know this was out there.

Great show!   (5/5)

Love the podcast! It's entertaining and helps me get through the work day!

Funny, Informative   (5/5)

While it has a raid focus, it covers WoW news and events. Perfect for listening .... in your robe.

Solid   (5/5)

Perfect show for raiders

These guys are HIIIIIIILARIOUS   (5/5)

Seriously, even if you don't raid, these guys have enough going on to keep you in literal stitches. Freaking stitches, I think I might be bleeding right now FROM MY SPLITTING SIDES! Even if you don't consider yourself a raider, these guys are worth a listen for their opinions on WoW alone.

My favorite podcast   (5/5)

These guys are great. Canceled my sub but after listening to a few of these shows got my interest back and re subed.Definitely my favorite podcast.

Best Podcast for Raiders   (5/5)

My favorite podcast. New raider who has only been playing the game for a year and you guys have helped me out tremendously. Whenever I run out of new material to listen to for the week at work I go back to your earlier episodes. They are all gems and are all enjoyable. Thank you and keep up the good work. P.S Koltrane is the best and so are ALL of his fortune cookies. GO MAGES!!!

MistakenCrayon   (5/5)

Best Wow podcast out there by far thank you guys for all the work you do. Hilarious and informative!!

Absolutely my favorite   (5/5)

This is absolutely my favorite WoW podcast. You guys rock. Hey Koltrane.... ETT baby!!!

Funny as *Bleep* and Keep em coming   (5/5)

Been a listener for a while know and i have to say that you guys are one of my favorite podcasts. Keep up the good work and dont ever stop them Fortune Cookies 30 Bongos out of 5 Bongos. =D

Where Community, Raiding, and News come together   (3/5)

As a recent member of the Convert to Raid Community, I feel lucky to have stumbled upon the Podcast, as this was the impetus to come back to WoW after 3 years off. Very few podcast, of any genre, have the production quality, relevant topics, and chemistry between Dairies, Pat Krane (Zhug), and Koltrane, that this podcast displays. Whether it is "The War Room", interviews with top raiding members, or the banter among the three hosts, you cannot go wrong for a pure entertaining podcast option. Add onto this the incredible community on Aerie Peak US that these fine gentleman (and ladies) have created and fostered. I consider myself lucky to be part of this close knit community. Take it from this old healer guy Doktorpope…make this a stable part of your podcast rotations.

Fortune Cookie Say.... CTR 5 star review!   (5/5)

I have been listening to this podcast before I started playing WOW, a fellow co worker would bring in his IPOD at work and would play this during our work day, The charisma between Pat Krane, "The Ragin Mage" Koltrane, and Solarflair was great but since they have replaced Solarflair with Dairies the show has only gotten better! I started playing WOW after listening to CTR because of how much fun you guys made it sound! Thank you!

Best WoW podcast   (5/5)

Hands down the best WoW podcast. Entertaining, funny, and very well produced every week. Keep up the good work guys!

Just what we want to hear.   (5/5)

Well informed. Well thought out podcast. These guys are pros Thudd

5 Stars!   (5/5)

Love the show, keep at it! Naoyuki Aerie Peak CtR. Co-Host to the Monk Meditation Podcast.

<3   (5/5)

Fortune Cookie Say: Amazing show, love all of you, and don't forget MAGE POWA!!!!!

One more added to the list   (5/5)

I have started listening to many WoW podcasts recently and just started listening to yours and have thought it was super awesome. Go Koltrane WOOOO!!!!

Legendary info   (5/5)

Glad I watch Legendary on GameBreaker, because they lead me to this Podcast. Quite a bit of info in here, and on CTR:Too, too!

Fortune Cookie Say...   (5/5)

Koltrane, Zhug, and new co-host Dairies have done a great job with Convert to Raid. While the show is focused on raiding in the World of Warcraft, it's the personalities, chemistry, and production quality that make this one of the best WoW podcasts out there. Even if you're only an LFR raider, you may find this show quite enjoyable. One of my personal "top ten" WoW shows.

Gone downhill   (2/5)

This new guy Aries or Hairy or whatever his name is, seems kinda elitist and even rude. On the latest episode, whining about kol trane interupting him, it was obviously not intentional. Grow up. Bring back solar flair or someone from gamebreaker or anyone else really.

Keep doing what you do!   (5/5)

Awesome podcast! Got an ipod just to be able to listen to it on the go!

great show   (5/5)

Love the show this and Legendary are my two fave shows to listen to

Convert To Raid WINS!!!   (5/5)

I listen to CTR at work, along with CTR2, and these guys are simply the most entertaining and knowledgable folks around! Of all the podcasts for WoW, there is just no comparison to how unique this podcast is. I've enjoyed every minute of each of the guys and have learned so much valuable information. I would give it more stars if it weren't for the limit. Keep up the Great Podcasting!!!

Mighty Fine Podcastin'   (5/5)

Super entertaining show about Raiding in WoW. I usually listen on Tuesdays while I grind valor.

Best there is   (5/5)

Gilgamesh- Bleeding Hollow. Hey guys been meaning to post a review for ya. Love the show. All 3 of you do a great job. Kolt is a riot. Darys input is always good advice and Zug always produces a great line up of content to discuss. Its perfect to get a WoW fix till i get off wrk. Thanks for the awesome show.

Great podcast!   (5/5)

I am an old school raider that stopped playing wow towards the end of Cata. Having recently reactivated my account I have found the Convert to Raid podcasts extremely informative and funny. If you enjoy discussions about raiding, wow news, patches, classes, and extremely dorky wow banter then I suggest that you check out this podcast and Convert to Raid Two!

Love it   (5/5)

Not much to add besides what's already been written. I started listening while the usual host was out of the country and really liked it, now that things are "back to normal" I like it even that much more. The hosts are funny, the content is relevant and I like that talk strats without going overboard with it. Great show. -Mongojerry

Zug for head of sanitation kolt for pres   (5/5)

Great podcast strong content regarding wow and patch notes. My go to podcast for melodious voices of mages and incoherent ramblings of a minnesotan. All in all if your looking to start a raid or are needing news aboot what's ahead of you in your raid this is where you need to be.

Anti LFR only   (2/5)

Really disappointed with episode 100. The strong opinions that everyone should enjoy the game the way the cast does and if not be punished with delays to LFR are ridiculous and annoying. I used to enjoy this show when it was more inclusive to others that are less "hard core", but no longer.

Awesome group of guys   (5/5)

Great podcasts, I enjoy them on a weekly bassis, Keep up the good work. Fortune cookie- "One who promises to go on a blind date is bound on pickup" thx Bloodlizzard @ Arthas-US in the guild - From The Internet

Fortune cookie say......don't get intimate with a warrior, you just might catch.....THE CLAP! :P Rombe - Draenor US

Great cookie show!   (5/5)

Dakker-Destromath Just started playing again but never stopped listening. Great show with lots of laughs.

Best WoW podcast ever!   (5/5)

I am the Raidleader for Raiders of the Lost Artichoke in the guild Convert to Riad Gallion and have one of the best teams I have ever been in. This would not be possible if not for this amazing show and the community they have created, Thank you guys so much!

Very entertaining   (5/5)

Been playing WOW for about 4 months now and find your podcast very entertaining. really makes my 2 hour commute go by fast. Also CTR2 is a great resource adn has helped me improve my game. Duinravincah -character assassins on cenarius.

Love the New Line Up!!!!   (5/5)

Just got through listening to Daries, Zhug and Koltrane, this new line up is great, can't wait to hear more!!!!!!!!!! !!!

Great show this week   (5/5)

Loved the show this week keep up the good work!

I Love You   (5/5)

I love you Jules... & Koltrane Thank you all for having them on this show!! Love, Jom @ CTRgalleon


Hey it's Gizmozord aka Jiz aka the dirtiest little green goblin hunter you'll ever meet from The Underbog US server. Great show! Always gets me through Monday afternoons at work!

Helpful, Informational, and Funny!   (5/5)

This is probably my favorite WoW podcast since Blue Plz, and it's helped inspire me to try new classes. Solar motivated me to get a hunter as my second 90 (following my Druid) and I have a Mage following it up soon after hearing Coltrane talking about his class. The hosts are excited about the game and bring that enthusiasm to the show.

Whether you're a hardcore WoW raider or a casual raider, this is the podcast for you!   (5/5)

I've listened to several different World of Warcraft podcasts for a while now, and this is definitely one of my favorites. It's got excellent production quality, awesome hosts who are well-versed in the ins & outs of the game, and it provides very useful info for anyone interested in raiding. If you're a WoW raider or just a fan of the game in general, you should definitely be listening to this show!

You had me at "Fortune Cookie" say...   (5/5)

Keeps getting better all the time.

Great job   (5/5)

Loving the new host lol keep it up Kolt much love for the show BUFF MAGES DELETE LOCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Blazin

Perfect blend of comedy, news, and good ole fashion banter.   (5/5)

defintely my number 1 podcast. Until this podcast came out and made a guild, i never even considered to pay money to transfer characters over. now ive transferred my mains and even am playing ALLIANCE! wow, u guys truly converted me. Could use a little more female presence, some of the best podcasts have a hot chick voice to enjoy. We need more Jules!

Great Job!   (5/5)

Pat would be proud! Great job on some wonderful topics, can't wait till next week.

The best WoW Podcast out there!   (5/5)

As a podcaster myself, I think I listen to CTR more than I do my own show. Wait. Don't read that part. CTR is a immensely fun and entertaining show, great chemistry between the hosts.

I love this show!   (5/5)

I love listening to CTR every Monday morning along side TTT, and Girls Gone WoW. Zhug, Koltrane and Solarflair make me chuckle every week, and I enjoy their bits. Keep up the good work, gentlemen!

why do u hate me?!   (5/5)

these are 3 of the best podcasters ever. i love this show! my husband no longer plays wow but with each new show we listen to what "fortune cookie say" together. i love that part of the show and FENG! i've gotta get that for a msg alert on my phone! but sadly, these guys hates trolls. :( holytosh, troll priest

Love the show   (5/5)

This show Is great. New listener sent by lore. Great to hear that people are still this interested in my happy addiction. (WoW)

Your podcast should be a built in feature!   (5/5)

Your show is amazing and it should be a added feature into WoW! I've just stumbled across your podcast not too long ago but what an eye opener! The insight and knowledge you guys bring to the game is phenomenal l ! I love the humor and entertainment value you guys provide too! I use to listen to music while doing my dailies and gearing my toons but now I listen to your back episode of the podcast! Thank you guys for providing such a great podcast and I can't wait to listen to future ones! You have made a fan for life! Yours Truly, Hoofwhite. P.S. Being an old vanilla player, your podcast is like my Carbonite Addon, I can't live without it!

Bezowbegoody!   (5/5)

I have learned much about WoW from podcasts and websites, especially yours. I eagerly await each episode. I enjoy the banter from Zhug, the professional demeanor of Solarflair, and the wild banter of Koltrane, as well as the most excellent audio love y'all bring. Sincerely, Zpanku 75 Monk and leveling! CTR2

Hard capped charisma   (5/5)

Awesome WOW podcast! Makes me laugh out loud every week, and constantly has me trying new classes and specs with all the great information they provide! They are great with the WOW community and recently started a guild for their own. Recent guests have included raiders from some of the top progression groups in the world, who provide great insight on their class, and the state of WOW.

So fun! <3 Solar   (5/5)

Dat voice, mMm. Awesome podcast every week! Always a joy and a good laugh. My birthday is May 3rd, can I has a solarflair hidden in a cake? *winky face*

Makes me wish I still played   (5/5)

Awesome show very professional and informative!

Ouch!! Too good to be true!!   (5/5)

Thanks for fhe guilds on Aerie Peak. Even pays for leaving the horde!! FOR CONVERT TO RAID GALLEON!!

Simply Awesome   (5/5)

This show continues to be one of the most entertaining and informative world of warcraft podcasts out there. What these hosts have done for our community is amazing. In a world of random dungeons, LFRs, and an overall decline in guild community, this show and the CTR guild on Aerie Peak has set out to change wow for the better. Your avid fan and guildmate Sueshi

I Listen...In My Robe   (5/5)

Great podcast, great guilds and a great group people come together to bring us a well produced gem weekly for my ear holes to savor. Thanks guys!

Awesome Show   (5/5)

just love the banter between the hosts, great content, and Yes i look Forward to the Jokes every week.

Simply the Best   (5/5)

The week cannot go by quick enough! These guys are great and I look forward to listening each and every week. Very happy they came out with CTR Too. They are simply the best. Rexigar Stormrage US

I put this stuff in my ears all the time...   (5/5)

And it's ok! If you allow it, this podcast has the power to improve your deeps, heeps, and tankification through sheer osmosis alone! Give a listen as the best three hosts in the castoverse pour golden liquid knowledge into your earholes. You won't regret it.

Entertaining and Informative   (5/5)

I listen weekly to this podcast while at work. This show helped re-invigorate me to play World of Warcraft. Our guild had been struggling with progression as well as finding and keeping members of our single raid team. Our old Gm stepped down and I took over the reigns using the principles that the Convert to Raid team put into their guild on Aerie Peak. Now our once struggling guild is one of the largest and one of the more popular guilds on our server for experienced and new raiders alike. We are running two teams currently with a third forming soon and our progression was enough to hold top 10 on our server for a bit and a consistant top 20 since the middle of 5.1. A big thanks from me and my entire guild over on Saurfang US, many of our Prog team also listen to your podcast and none of us can get enough keep up the good work and see you in game. Sarvoc 90 DK Saurfang, Nex Mortis GM Lillith 64 DK Aerie Peak Convert to Raid Azuregos P.S. Sorry im not on more on Aerie Peak

Great   (5/5)

Don't really play wow anymore but I listen to every new episode when they come out.

Brilliant!   (5/5)

Play a mage, Nayruan, on Aerie Peak US. Guild: Pinnacle When you guys joined the realm I decided I would try and listen to the podcast. Very mad I've been missing out for so long, Love the Show! Hope to see you guys at Blizz Con


Simply the funniest show on the interwebs. Sooooo good your going to download old shows just to be entertained.

Fantastic!   (5/5)

Easily the best wow podcast I've listened to. Gives me lots of laughs on the way to and from work. Thanks for making my commute much more enjoyable!

Fotrune cookie say: best podcast ever!   (5/5)

Excellent podcast full of humor and useful information about all things WoW. Zhug, Koltrane, and Solar compliment each other so well, and the production level of this cast is superb. This is thee podcast I look forward to on a weekly basis. Also if you need any information about how to own as a mage, look no further than the master mage himself, Koltrane; or if you like playing a subpar class like a hunter or something they have that covered as well!

This is my Boom Stick with Zoomkins   (5/5)

What an insightful interview. I have a lvl 90 balance/resto Druid on Sisters of Elune. I've never really been able to push her to do the huge numbers like some of the others in my guild so, when I heard this interview I kept playing back segments over and over to pick up all those subtle little clues as to how to play this truly enigmatic, yet captivating class. I am always waiting for those awesome procs that I am now beginning to recognize and, wow to hear how they work together.....sweet!! Thank you for grabbing him and thank you Zoomkins for sharing your wealth of knowledge. And grats on your success. I've got to tell you that to get to listen to CTR while doing the hard business of accounting at month end, is a real treat for me. You all always make me smile and my co-workers are always looking at me wondering why I am laughing so hard, while the rest of the office is quiet enough you can hear a pin drop. I just love you guys. And BTW... I am leveling a hunter on Aerie Peak in CTR Galleon. Can't wait to "grow up" to join the raiding. :) GEESH you guys are great!!

Quality Audio for Raiders   (5/5)

Have been listening to these guys for quite some time. If there is new raiding or just interesting WoW topics, these guys are all over it. They always have great perspective and give honest points of view on all that is going on in WoW. Whats even better is that their 10m has been on the same pace as my current 10m for quite the last 2 patches making it fun to see how they are handling the new boss encounters. Keep it up guys and congrats on the successful guild launch. Danski - Stormrage

Fan-tastic   (5/5)

Well-produced, extremely entertaining, AND informative (with great guests). Highly recommended for anyone in the WoW-verse. I listen to it while I work and while I play. Also, I believe two of the three are working voice professionals (and Solar also has a great voice), and it's never ever dull.

It's great!   (5/5)

This has been a long time coming. I've been following the show since somewhere in the 50 area, only coming so late because of my lack of playing WoW for so long, started back in Wrath, but didn't get really into it til mid-late Cata. I started looking into podcasts and found a few I liked, mainly The Instance, but then I heard a few add's for CtR and from the first episode I got my hands on, I was hooked. Koltrane for President.

Your why I started listening to podcasts   (5/5)

I have never picked up and listened to any podcasts until a friend had me listen to yours. I have been a loyal listener ever since and feel dumb I haven't wrote a review yet. But really guys I love all of you and the show is more than I could have ever wanted! Thanks!

Great Podcast   (5/5)

This is a great podcast that has a bunch of information on end game raiding, but great fun as well. Love this podcast.

Reignited my love for WOW   (5/5)

Thank you guys so much for this podcast! When I couldn't play wow for a bit this podcast really kept my attention and made me even more excited for raiding. Doomlegend

Another Great Show!   (5/5)

Thanks for another great show guys. It's lways a pleasure listening to you guys, keep doing what you do! Ashexion, Convert to Raid Azuregos

Awesomeness   (5/5)

Great podcast! Very funny and informative, love listening to all three of you keep up the great work!

podcast for a GM/RL   (5/5)

If you are a GM/RL, this is the podcast for you. My favorite segment as a RL/GM is by far the leading the raid segment and my favorite aspect of the entire podcast is anything that has koltrain recording his robe. Please give us a koltrain soundboard :D

awesome   (5/5)

One of the best podcasts out there and THE best world of warcraft podcast BAR NONE.!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you , CopperBottom

Great podcast Great guild   (5/5)

They have great weekly tips for in game content

Great podcast   (5/5)

At first I didn't raid and I hated coltranes same old game show voice all the time. Then that turned into the two things I like the most about the show. Keep up the excellent material guys and keep telling me what I like even if I don't know it at first. Late.

Great job fellas!!   (5/5)

Humor, informative and even some strategy tips! What else could u ask for! Keep it up! -- Brewbs the Brewmaster Monk on Area 52 in my robe!!!

Pocast about raiding in World of Warcraft may be .. Epic Loot?

Great podcast   (5/5)

If you're a raider or even remotely interested in raiding in WoW, then this show is a "must listen". The show is highly-produced, extremely informative, and always entertaining. Keep up the great work.

Outstanding WoW Podcast   (5/5)

The show balances informative news updates and analysis with great humor and host chemistry. Well worth the sub and keep up the great work!

Perfection   (5/5)

I have been listening to you guys now for about 7 months and there is no nobody that can compete with the quality you guys bring to this podcast.

Excellent Professional Podcast   (5/5)

The production value of this podcast is excellent. Full of WoW information and a very fun listen.

Awesome as usual!!   (5/5)

Have been listening since episode 1! You guys put out volumes of information for us WoWphiles and keep it fun and entertaining to boot. Keep up the great work!! Cursonmaheed, warlock, Aggramar US

Simply the best WoW podcast   (5/5)

CTR puts me in a good mood. I save CTR on my ipod for a stressfull work day, and it brings me right back up. It makes me laugh and informs me. I love everything about the show and community/guild. Thanks guys, for all of the awesome you put out every week.

Better then church!   (5/5)

CtR is great, lots of information and humor. Plus Koltrane sounds like Will Arnett!

Long time listener and all the awesomeness. Latest episode and its rockin open was sweeeeet. Great relationship and feed off of each other perfectly.

Great Info and Fun!   (5/5)

" Download and have a few laughs" Been meaning to post this for awhile, But after Koltrane's Bruce Willis quote last week HAD to make the time! The show and hosts are just the best in podcasting! Very professional, lots of great information and done so with lots of laughs.

They got me raiding again   (5/5)

I have had mixed experience raiding since Vanilla. My incredible high at downing the Lich King turned sour in Cataclysm and hesitant in MoP. Then I discovered these gentlemen at Blizz Gone. I gave them a listen and found them to be one of the most polished, professional and focused podcasts I have ever listened to. They all sound like they do radio for a living (maybe they do?), without all of the ums and likes and distractions of many of the amateur podcasters out there. They provide worthwhile news and tips and specialize in the raiding, which few other podcasts can do well. After a few listens, I started LFR, and before I knew it, the guild officers had asked me to become a raid leader for our small social guild. After just a few weeks of 2 hour raids, we have downed two bosses, and I put the credit for getting me excited about raiding again clearly on the shoulders of these three remarkable men. In fact, my desire to raid again is so powerful now, I am working up a new character in the convert to raid guild. If you are a raider, or want to be, and can only listen to one podcast, make this the one.

Love your show guys keep up the good work

Helping me get back into it   (5/5)

I raided hardcore in EQ and moved into WoW with a faction of my guild, who quickly became contenders for world firsts. I, however, quit before TBC was announced - now that I resubbed everyone I know is long gone. This podcast is SUPER helpful in getting me back into the uber mindset. A must listen for all WoW fans.

Fanny packs?!?!   (5/5)

I have been listening a while but this podcast stole my heart when they started explaining ignis's pot as his fanny pack. You guys are great!

Compelling, and Rich...   (5/5)

What sets this show apart from the others is the fact that the hosts have great chemistry and are reasonably intelligent. Other Podcasts have maybe 8 minutes of relevant material and over an hour of completely unrelated bloat. These guys actually spend the entire show speaking at length about relevant issues in the game. The show segments are thought provoking and intuitive. Love it! Kolt, you forgot to take out the trash, and the hamster got out of his cage again last night...

Great WoW Podcast   (5/5)

Converted (yes, I went there) from another WoW podcast and haven't gone back. Great chemistry, content and quality.

Raiders of the Lost Artichoke- CTR Aerie Peak US   (5/5)

This is the greatest, super fantastic, lovely and helpful raiding podcast ever! :) If it wasnt for these guys I would still be sitting in all alone with no raid team! Thanks for all the hard work! :D

Love these guys   (5/5)

The talent in this show, the work put into it, and the fandom it has really make this podcast an amazing listen each week. Thank you! I'm always excited when I see your guild tag in my LFRs now.

Not Trolls   (5/5)

It's so nice to be able to listen to a great podcast that still sees the joy in the game. A nice vacation from the "WoW is dead" trolls. Plus, the Convert To Raid guilds on Aerie Peak are great. Half of our Horde raid team rolled new alliance toons and we are loving it. Keep it up guys!! Love, Py :)

Excellent podcast   (5/5)

I've recently found these guys and with a long ride to and from work everyday I'm working my way back thru old episodes. Fantastic, very entertaining and informative for what is literally my only hobby. Warcraft.

Amazing   (5/5)

A great podcast for a wow player and his son

Awesome show!   (5/5)

Just like the title says, awesome show guys! Helps pass the time while driving for work!

CRT for life!!! BREWHAHA!!!

Wow...   (5/5)

I have only listened to episode 65 and only 30 seconds because a friend told me I "must listen to this" where you guys sang we will Wok Fu...and I knew I would love it. Downloading every episode to listen to at work. Coming from a fellow podcaster I can say these guys are freaking you guys :)

Fabulous Show!   (5/5)

Love you guys, keep up the awesome show

Amazingly stupendous   (5/5)

Halaa! Great show gentlemen! Always entertaining! Keep up the good work!

The Best   (5/5)

Mages FTW

Greatness   (5/5)

love the podcast and the guys. Friend turned me on to it and listen every week while i am at work. Keep up the awesome work that is Convert to Raid.

Best WoW cast out there!   (5/5)

High production value, solid format, and very entertaining!

Excellent   (5/5)

Love the shows. I just got back into the game after two years, and this has been my favorite WoW podcast hands down. The conversational style is great, and the group's enthusiasm really shines through. The War Room has proven very helpful. Keep up the good work!

CtR is a Perfectly Legal Ear-Drug.   (5/5)

CtR blows other podcasts out of the water with its hosts' palpable passion for the game they play. Rather than simply cover news or detail raid boss strategies (which they do in abundance), the hosts add a personal touch to their coverage, making the show one that any WoW player can relate to. The show has a very round-table feeling to it, like they're recording it in the next room over while you're playing WoW, but with a very professional production quality. Keep up the good work lads!

So Much of Win!   (5/5)

Fortune cookie saaaaay: This is a great podcast. Informative, entertaining and funny. if you're looking into getting into raiding of any sort, this is the podcast to listen to Very professional production value as well. Keep it up folks

One of the best WOW podcast   (5/5)

I get a kick out of this show every week.. I'm completely new to wow and I have learned so much just by listening to these guys... I joined there guild and have been having a blast... Keep up the get work

Always a joy to listen to.   (5/5)

I look forward to this podcast every week. Fantastic production value, funny bumpers, and the boss intros are EPIC. Lots of valuable info for the more casual raider.

Fun for raiders and non-raiders alike   (5/5)

Love this podcast - great content, fun hosts, pro editing, and just a splash of the bizarre.

Fortune cookie say this podcast is like...   (5/5)

a hug from raiding friends. I don't raid but love this podcast. I found it while listening to the instance, and loved it so much went back and listened to all the episode. A great podcast which makes me wish I had time to raid.

Best WoW podcast ive ever listened to   (5/5)

It suprises me that this show isnt more well known. This blows every other WoW podcast out of the water. The production value is phenomonal. The chemistry, the segments, and sound bits, not to mention the voice acting and love that is put into this show makes it something that I look forward to every week. If you dont listen to this show and you do any level of raiding you are seriously missing out.

episode #80, BEST FORTUNE COOKIE EVER!!!!   (5/5)

I loved episode #80 fortune cookie. Nice job I nearly peed myself.

Single-handedly brought me back to the game   (5/5)

I want to thank CTR for being the reason that I came back to this game. This podcast is hilarious, clean, and professionally done. The hosts are genuinely love the game and it shows. I may have to switch to Arie Peaks now!

Love the show   (5/5)

A good buddy of mine recommended this show and it helped me come back to WoW. It has a great balance of both humor and intelligence, which keeps me listening each week. Love the show, keep up the good work guys. Gurio, AIE Fidelis

A must for any WoW Player!   (5/5)

Thanks to The Instance "BlizzGone" episode I've started listening to the CTR podcast. Their insight into raiding, into the game that I love playing is great as well as the interaction between the "players" is great. This is one of the best produced podcasts for the World of Warcraft and I highly recommend it for anyone out there who is thinking about raiding, who is already raiding, for anyone who wants a good laugh. The segments are great and so funny. I've gone back and started listening from the beginning just to enjoy the laughter amongst the guys.

Upset AIE   (5/5)

I enjoy the show. IMO best WoW podcast by far. I don't care that left to go your own path. But to say you left to create your own gaming community upset some people , since AIE helped in some part make you successful. It's a game anyone is free to do whatever they want. But majority of AIE worship the podcasters for some reason. Just players like the rest of us. Keep a good showing going, your way better than instance.

Awesome Show!   (5/5)

I love listening to the show (sadly not live) but it helps pass the time doing dailys and provides helpful and entertaining information.

Got to   (5/5)

You rock! I recommend this show to everyone now.

Man Crush   (5/5)

I think i could listen to Koltrain talk about quilting and love it. You guys are a great team and bring some much needed entertainment to my daily quest grinding. My son and I both love the show. Keep doing what you're doing!!! :)

Great Podcast!   (5/5)

I listen to a few different WoW podcasts, and this one takes the cake. Between the crazy bits and fortune cookies, to in depth raid encounters and raiding news, this podcast has it all! Great listen for anyone whos thinking about raiding or anyone who is currently raiding. Keep up the great work guys! I look forward to your show every week!

Awesome podcast for raiders and   (5/5)

I started listening to these guys about Episode 70 or so as Mists Of Pandaria started to approach, and I find this is becoming my favorite podcast to listen to in my drive to and from work locations . Great podcast on WOW and raiding in WOW, and very entertaining! All they need is a hot lady in a bikini adding her raid knowledge to the mix and they have me for LIFE!

Amazing Podcast   (5/5)

Great info, funny and outstanding production values

My favorite podcast   (5/5)

This is honestly the best podcast for raiders and WoW players. I never miss an episode. They constantly provide great information in a fun/hilarious/interesting way and it has improved my raiding performance tenfold. Keep up the great work guys

Fortune Cookie Say... (Oh Boy)   (5/5)

Entertaining, WoWducational, Up to date (except when Blizz suprises them with info an hour after they record of course) and bazoobagwabo. This helps me look forward to a long closing shift as a pizza delivery driver on Monday nights. Thanks guys!


This is the greatest podcast ever!!! I love the host and all that they bring to this podcast, from the jokes to indepth raid encounters. Its all GREAT!!! Keep up the great work guys.

There is only one issue.   (5/5)

If they got rid of 'Solarflare' the show would deserve a six star rating. He brings the show to an immature level by taking the game WAY too seriously. Games are ment for fun. Not a part time job like he treats it.

Great podcast   (5/5)

One of the most informative WOW podcast out there. Scott, Dills, and occasionally Twerpster, lol, have a great chemistry together.

Welcome home, players!   (5/5)

Wonderful voices, excellent segments. The hosts know the game and love to talk about it. Something for every WoW player. Made for raiders, accessible to casuals.

Love it   (5/5)
