Battle Pet Hotfixes and Talk Azeroth: Flex Raiding
2013/09/27 at 12:15 PM
This week Olivia takes us through some of the recent forum complaints about LFR and Flex. Is it too easy? Too hard? Or have we just totally forgotten what it's like in new tiers? And is Flex taking away all the good raiders?
She also gets into your viewer questions, dealing with last week's responses to the Censer of Eternal Agony, and its issues with PvP flagging on PvE servers. Lastly she dives into the complete farce that has been the start of season 14, with the conquest vendors being up and down like your average yo-yo, the gear issues and the impact on rating.

If you tested the store before the wipe, you will get after redoing the introductory missions.

2013/09/23 at 11:03 AM
Olivia dives right in to the World First race from her secret lair in the USA, wondering why the bosses are dropping like flies this time around and putting her pet theories out there for your examination. Next up, she's been besieged with emails about the Censer of Eternal Agony which is purchased from the Timeless Isle, and used either to mercilessly gank people like the black-hearted snakes you are, or for some fun world PvP, depending on your perspective.
