Bind On Equip
Date:7 sept 2014
If you are new to Bind on Equip….Welcome.
If you’re wondering what the fuss is about, we’re not sure either, We are a wow podcast, where we talk about us as wow players and how we play the game.
and now as the sun sets on Pandaria we invite you inside the game with us as we reminisce about the good and bad old days as BOE takes you both ways in the snow!
Yes we’ve assembled a highly questionable team that in all honesty probably wouldn’t even get a gig in the Expendables and we are working through the instances old school Vanilla wow style:no heirlooms, teleporting, instaqueues, riding before 40, flying before 70, or flying in Northrend with the twist of using the newest class to the game, Monks!
In the house this time around we have
as always the Wych,
the lovely Tempeste,
and joining us Berat
So last week we did…strat live
On the grill this week, we are working through…strat dead.
Now we have events this past week in boe land:
It was the birthday or not only the beloved miss B, daughter of the wych, not only the birthday or the Worgen who has captured the imagination of many of our listeners but also the birthday of the main man himself, the mighty wych! Happy Birthday mate- we all know how you celebrate your new years eve, and hats off to you sir!
Also if you need any further proof that Melbourne is the true home of the wych, you only need to google Batmania, and you will see that it was the original intended name for the current worlds most livable city Melbourne. In fact i can inform listeners that it is indeed called Batmania, but thats its secret identity so the rest of the time we are known as billionaire playboy Melbourne, with our youthful ward, Tasmania.
Also for all the Aussie Dads its Fathers Day in Australia, so hope you are having a nice day. Or as i call it- Fathers Day- when you get to act the way you try and act the other 364 days of the year, but this time you get away with it.
lets go over the news thats caught our attention:

News, Observations, Opinion & Discussion topics:
Warlords of Draenor – Dark Portal Updated
The Dark Portal was previously red in beta, but it seems the ramp has now been turned into rubble, along with a few other tweaks.
Warlords of Draenor – Female Gnome Faces
The latest build made female gnomes somewhat less happy compared to the original preview. Her face still does smile when doing most emotes. Keep in mind this is beta, so this facial expression isn’t final!
Warlords of Draenor – Upcoming Tank Squish
- Big changes to tanks and tanking encounters
- removing the power creep thats been evolving where level of defensive abilities has gotten out of hand
- detuning so that tanking classes are 3/5/10 times better at tanking than other classses rather than 50/100 times
- mob damage is being tuned down to match
- armor reduction; plate, mail, shields
- reduced effectiveness; actions that increase health (bear form, guarded by the light), passively reduce damage (def stances, blood presences), actively mitigate(shield block, divine bulwark, shuffle, savage defence), defensive buffs (last stand, divine protection, barkskin, bone shield)
- Resolve has changed to not scale with stamina, just damage over last 10 seconds
It sounds scary but matched with the damage reduction from mobs, Blizz say try before you cry.
They also assure that the tank is far from becoming redundant as they are not nerfing mobs that much.
Valor Points and Lesser Charms Changes in Patch 6.0
- Test of valor is being removed from legendary cloak chain after 6.0
- Item upgrades will be paid for with Lesser Charms of Good Fortune instead of valor or justice
- the turn-in cap for warforged seals is being lifted
- currently it looks like 50 lesser charms for each weapon upgrade
- valor/justice vendors will now sell their items for gold
stand by for renewed gold farmer baiting!

Hi you sexy people,
So I know it was only a short time since my last email but with you releasing so often I feel I have to keep up (giggle)
Candarla actually went raiding on a normal raid and it was well wow, went really well, then we did flex 3 and I realised that I was nowhere near ready, had not done enough homework and so I have stepped back and allowed the more experienced players in my new guild. She has now completed Outland for Loremaster all I have now is Kalimdor, so no pressure at all!!!
I am also looking at running classic raids for achievement runs.
I have to say I nearly had a car accident the other day when listening to 231 and Berat and Wych, sorry Wych but it was one of the funniest things I have ever heard, the innocent voice of Berat and knowing full well what he had done. it was pure gold.
So my Monk is still at 51 but I will be working on her soon,
Lots of Love
Hey Wemb and cohorts.
Gybs here (@awayfromlife). You asked on Twitter to email you about our efforts.
Perseverance can only take you so far; there’s one boss that will beat you every time and that’s the Sha of Attendance. We’ve cut our raid nights to once a week and on the other we’ve taken up a different endeavor. Endgame of Caelestrasz has taken a page from the annals of Bind On Equip are are Rocking the Horde. Rolling on Aman’thul under the guise of members of Rubicon. Our wayward adventurers carried on.
Nilchi, Pallipoweralf, Smellyelli, Shazmak and Sassichick.
Through Ragefire and Deadmines; and onwards to Shadowfang Keep. Dings were a plenty; and deaths thankfully at a minimum.
Ending the night after going from 15 to 22, come Monday night we once again Rock the Horde!
Home- went to TOG drinks last night with Temp, and hadn’t been to one since i started losing weight, so it was a nice boost to see the shocked looks on everyones faces to see how much i had changed.
If you’re not in-game get in there!

Wemb: played a bit on my monk with berat on his paladin yesterday and we worked through a lot of
