Episode 74 – Elite Hardcore Altoholic

This week TNB welcomes Tristan from The Elitists podcast. We talk with him about being in a hardcore raiding guild and what that means. In addition, we talk about his podcast and his secretly (or not so secretly) suffering from Altaholism. We also talk about what the Limited attempts in ICC mean and YOUR chance to get published on WoW.com!

Blizz announces change to Resilience (link)

Blood wing is now open. The first hot-fixes already incoming (link)

Arthas will be available to kill on 2/2 if you’ve cleared the lower spire and killed each of the wing end-bosses.

How Limited Attempts Work:

  • The limited attempts applies only to the following bosses: Professor Putricide, Blood Queen Lana’thel, Sindragosa, and the Lich King.
  • The limited attempts are shared between these bosses, so if there are 15 attempts total and your group wipes 5 times on Professor Putricide, you will only have 10 attempts for the remaining encounters.
  • The limited attempts has increased this week to 15 and will increase to 20 when the Frostwing Hall opens and more will be added in the weeks following that.
