Real life: home/work:
Temp: I am on holidays! So far I have written a book for kinder and written 22! Tomorrow I have to be at aldi to buy a magazine rack. Thursday we are rearranging the room and I still have some other bits and pieces to do!
Wych: Short version – last week sucked! This week looking up! Enjoying my week off work so far & loving having some play time for the 1st time in ages.
In game Adventures:
Anyone is welcome to join the Pants On Head guild unless we have booted you before for being a dick! Log into the Jubei’thos oceannic realm on the horde side and join the BOE channel. A friendly officer will quiz you and you will be rubbing shoulders with us before you know it!
Our guild & Raid team: Crazy Train?
The guild is thriving and busy with new people hitting 110 every day or so!
CT, we have four toons raid ready- well done Conti and quite a few heroic ready and some more well on their way. As soon as we have a viable 10 at 840 we are starting, so far we have one tank, two healers and one dps, the others can join us when they have the gear. I am taking a far more relaxed position this time around and expecting people to be self sufficient and sort their own game out! I hit 828 today so won’t be long.
So what have you been doing?
Wembli: Spent Sunday doing tons of world quests- more than 12 as we covered all the emissary requirements. First getting order hall resources, then just doing the remaining emissary ones we needed.
Berat: Mostly world quests on the monk, with the odd guild run, and working on the priest and warrior, both at 106.
Temp: I am loving doing world quests, Wemb and i jumped on last night and smashed out a quick 3. Got some resources and an upgrade. Awesome! I have only done a few dungeons – but they are fun, I don’t seem to get drops in dungeons – RNG is not loving the mage.
Now that we have some time off, Wemb and I have been catching up on Suramar quest chains and have finished 5/11 chapters. Today we completed the Val’sharah zone.
Wych: Fully focused on my hunter who hit 110 yesterday – completing the zone leveling guides as well as my Hall, Class & profession quests.
Where is your toon at?
Wembli: just ticked over the 820 ilevel. Haven’t been focussing heavily on gear yet- trying to get my artefact, followers, order hall and class quests humming along.
Done 2nd artifact going for third.
Berat: 842 iLvl, haven’t really done much besides questing for the week, although I getting lots of 840’s off world quests. GRATS!
As always, I need resources desperately!
Wych: hit 790 ilevel today when I started Azsuna – need to get that finished and then start on Suramar to complete my Hall/Class quests.
Wembli: nothing shiny to report!
Berat: Got my warlock to 110 for some alchemy/flask goodness – it’s affliction, so I can take a while to kill many things at once 🙂 Also, all but one Artifact quest done on Jub Jub (Rogue, still not sure which spec to go).
I thought while I was on holidays and Wemb was not I might level my priest >< I don’t have time to do anything!! I did manage to get my artefact weapon and guild hall and trained in all the professions. Otherwise she is just hanging out in my garrison making 30 slot bags.
Wych: Nothing to see here – need to focus
Wembli: I like how you can use the world quests to target what you need, resources, gear, rep LOVE IT!
Berat: I keep finding new places to see.
Wych: Really enjoying the story lines, I think when I run my alt through I’ll pay a little more attention rather than focusing on the guide that can’t be named.
Temp: Mythic Eye of Azshara –
Heroic with Taute tanking, Berat healing, Deddy, Wemb and I dps …
Berat: I think I’m suffering from too many alts, as I usually do at the start of an expansion, it’s almost frustrating trying not to play all of them at once, so I decided I needed to get my Alchemy alt up and running, then I’ll probably get the Tailor/Enchanter and Blacksmith, with an Engineer in there somewhere.
Temp: This is the first time I have felt like I have SOOOO much to do on SOOO many toons and not enough time to do any of it!
Wembli: I think at the start the sheer number of things you are trying to get established and on top of at once. We want to get into raids as soon as we can, but there are a lot of different things you are trying to get on top of at the same time.
Wych: The hunter quest line is bugged in Suramar which means you need to run through about 50% of the quest there before you can actually complete the initial quest in that line.
What have you discovered?
Memorable pvp moments?
Berat: A couple of times that my warlock has been set on and ganked by a max level, that person has been immediately set upon and killed by a pair of max level horde nearby. Very satisfying 🙂 Today, I healed some hordies while they ran from alliance into me and other hordies, doing world quests.
Class Hall stuff?
Berat: The class halls seem to be a little flatter as time goes on, but they’re spacing things out, I got to do a couple of new Illidan quests today, I love the one in Black Temple, laughed my arse off.
Temp – I love mine!
Berat: Finding all the crafting quests to be a lot of fun.
Wych: loving the LW quests – I keep get side tracked doing them when I should be focusing on the main story
@wemb @BindOnEquip clarification on the nuts out comment. BM Hunter, dual pets, N.U.T.S is one of them. #nothingsuss
Thank you @bitterandsalty @BindonEquip @AllThingsAz and @ConverttoRaid for your work. My exercise and car ride entertainment rock. @Warcraft
@BindOnEquip hit 110 after a 3 year break… holy cow the quests. there’s so much to do! it’s hard to feel like you’re keeping up.

@BindOnEquip hunter is 110, max skinning, loving world quests, 841 ilevel, been in a few dungeons! Also got LW mount recipe but not 800 yet

Paid BattleTag Changes Now Available
While we’ve always provided players with one free BattleTag change per account, now we’re pleased to offer an additional paid BattleTag change service for those of you who would appreciate the opportunity to choose yet another new moniker.
BattleTags do not need to be unique. You can use any name you want, as long as it follows our Naming Policy. Each BattleTag is assigned a numeric ID to create a unique identifier (for example, FallenSlayer#3592).
Your friends will now automatically see you listed under your new BattleTag, but otherwise your friends list will not be affected by this change.
Preview – Mythic Keystones
Blizzard shared a preview of the Mythic+ dungeon system, with a few noteworthy things:
As in WoD, three levels of difficulty and rewards: Normal, Heroic, and Mythic. Heroic and Mythic difficulties are only available at 110, and no queue for Mythic via Dungeon Finder.
Keys of Stone
From September 20, the first time you complete a Mythic dungeon each week, you’ll be rewarded with a Mythic Keystone for a specific dungeon, chosen randomly from among all Mythic dungeons to which you have access. Your very first Keystone will enable access to Mythic Level 2, offering both increased difficulty and rewards.
We Move Swiftly
To activate, venture to the specified Mythic dungeon,
place the Keystone into the Font of Power just inside.
If you don’t interact with the Font, the dungeon will operate in its default Mythic state.
When players activate a Mythic Keystone,
a timer begins counting down, and the group has a fixed amount of time to defeat the dungeon’s bosses
this timer is quite forgiving—its purpose is not to encourage speed runs, but rather to provide a gauge for a well-executed run.
Whether or not you beat the time, a chest containing a couple of pieces of loot awaits you at the end of your run.
If you successfully beat the time,
your Keystone will be upgraded to a higher level and attuned to a new random dungeon.
If you don’t beat the time, your Mythic Keystone is “depleted.”
A depleted Keystone can be used to try to beat the timer in the hopes of getting a fresh upgraded Keystone, but runs started with a depleted Keystone will not award loot.
With each increasing level of Mythic difficulty, the health and damage of enemies will increase.
In addition, at Levels 4, 7, and 10, new modifiers are introduced that will require players to adapt and evolve to succeed.
Example Keystone modifiers include:
Raging—Non-boss enemies enrage at 30% health remaining, dealing 100% increased damage until defeated.
Bolstering—When any non-boss enemy dies, its death cry empowers nearby allies, increasing their maximum health and damage by 20%.
Skittish—Enemies pay far less attention to threat generated by tanks.
Volcanic—While in combat, enemies periodically cause gouts of flame to erupt beneath the feet of distant players.
These modifiers are visible on each Mythic Keystone, and all Keystones of the appropriate level will have the same modifiers during a given week.
Mythic Keystone Rewards
creatures do not drop loot normally during a Mythic Keystone run,
upon completion of the run, players will find a chest containing two high-quality items for the party.
item level of these rewards starts at item level 845 for Mythic Level 2, and goes all the way up to item level 865 for a Mythic Level 10.
these items also have a chance to be Warforged or Titanforged, allowing them to potentially scale all the way up to item level 895.
After completing any Mythic Keystone dungeon within the time limit (whether using your own Keystone or someone else’s), a reward chest will be available in your Class Hall the following week. That chest contains a guaranteed piece of gear with a power level reflecting the highest Mythic level you completed during the prior week, up to a maximum of item level 880 for a successful Mythic Level 10 clear. It will also contain a new Mythic Keystone for you, which allows you to jump right back into your weekly Mythic dungeon adventures.
G’day BoE crew,
I was listening to episode 301 and, for some reason, I thought of a random thing I wanted and I wanted to email Wych about it. So, here goes… ahem…
I want the show notes on the web site.
Thanks to you all!
Love your work Grim!
Hi Sexy Crew,
Firstly I love the new format.
Id to feel that I need to reiterate that the “loony Bin” was my words and I call it that as my coping mechanism and to belittle that was a difficult time for me.
So WoW news, I am probable a bit weird (well you know that already) but I got my artefacts for all 11 toons as soon as Legion dropped. I then thought what should I do next and shock horror I chose my Druid to start, She is feral and now Leel110. I’m now working on my Hunter as a Marksman, “Lone Wolf” spec. she is Level 102 and pushing out around 65k DPS, so i’m pretty happy. The lore is incredible and I still cry when i have to kill the corrupted Ysera.
In real life, we’ve had a few challenges, a funeral for a friend, a wedding and a big party.The party was fancy dress and Claire went as Batgirl and I went as Lara Croft, White T, short shorts, knee high boots and not a lot else. we were very popular!!!
We are off to Italy in 2 weeks time (but Claire is going to be away for the week before) and then planning next year’s Holiday, looks like Africa will be the destination.
Anyway take care you wonderful people
Love you lots
Time for a game before we go…
BOE WOW SMACKDOWN!
Soundboard:Wow Smackdown intro
The team’s next challenge is to find you the coolest zone in all of wow! We’re leaving Legion out because we haven’t had time to get to know them properly.
Using a knockout format this time, zones will go head to head until only one is left!
Bind On Equip – Wiki Super Challenge!!
I’m a place, a person, a piece of loot, an event or even an expansion. What am i?
I’ll give 6 clues ranging in difficulty from Legendary, Epic, Rare, Uncommon, Common to Trash.
You get one guess for each clue, using your name as a buzzer. Then i invite you to answer and if you are right you win, scoring the amount of points that clue was worth.
If multiple people answer i will ask them in turn.
if you say two answers or say an answer instead of your name to buzz in, you are giving other people clues.
All facts come from wow-wiki, so….y’know…
Shouts or Sledges before we go?
Wych: HUGE shout out to 2 very good friends of the show – 1 for the money cant buy Skylanders they sent to the Worgen as a belated B’day present & the other for helping us be able to have some fun & forget our troubles for a while. Plus of course everyone who sent good vibes – you all rock!
Any nominations for the working title of this episode?
