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.
Off we go into this week’s topics:
How was your patch day?
New Instances (cannot be launched)

THIS WEEK’S DISCUSSION TOPIC:
25 man raids versus 10 man raids. Which do you like better, what differences make them easier or harder, should they drop equal level gear?
