Podcast Number 2: Patches And Sauce

December 13, 2009

This week Fen, Esta and Sauce talk about their experiences in the new raid content, patch day, the new dungeons, and all things patch 3.3 and beyond.

We introduce Sauce, talk about how we came to know him, and Fen reveals that before he knew Sauce well he didn’t think highly of him.  Esta’s cats and Fen’s dogs do their best to destroy the show.
