Welcome home, raiders, to the podcast devoted to the end game in World of Warcraft. Listen to the latest news and views on raiding, insights from our players...and a bunch of really bad jokes. It's Convert to Raid!

4 Year Anniversary Special! | Convert to Raid Ep186

Yes patch 6.2 dropped this week, but it’s time to celebrate 4 years of CtR (and Koltrane’s last show)! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll groan at all of the bad jokes the guys have in store for you. And they’ll play back a TON of incredible audio bits created since the show began. Visit Koltrane “In his robe,” Head to Blizzcon in a panda suit, join the guys as they make fun of raid bosses before they down them in epic fashion, sing along with Pat Krane, and finish it off with a very special legendary tribute to the Funky Monk himself. And there are plenty of laughs, feels, and fortune cookies along the way! Don’t worry, WoW players, they’ll also give you their impressions of patch 6.2, the recent developer interviews, the Hellfire Citadel raid instance and much more. A little something for everyone in this very special, SUPER show.

Patch 6.2 Lands This Week! | Convert to Raid Ep185

The crew returns for another CtR this week, and this time they bring along world class raider, Treckie! Blizzard didn’t give much warning on the actual date, but patch 6.2 is set to launch Tuesday (June 23)! It’s time to get your characters ready for all of the great new content — the Hellfire Citadel raid, Tanaan Jungle, flying (to be released in a future patch), and much more. But what are some of the things you can do to make sure you’re on top of your game? Another large part of this release is the final chapter of the Legendary Ring quest line. The guy will give you some the basic idea of what you’ll need to do — all while trying not to give you too many spoilers along the way. Ion Hazzikostas, lead game designer for WoW, followed up last week’s Q&A with more on the forums this week. Included are more insights to some of his answers on the stream, and he also fields various new questions, ranging from class questions to encounter design and more. Also the Battlenet News returns as Blizzard lands at the PC Gaming Show at E3 to talk Heroes, Diablo, and StarCraft II, and we finally see how Tavern Brawls will work in Hearthstone. Plus, there’s a bunch of news for CtR Guild members, including information for the big Blizzcon party, the new raid tools exclusively for the CtR Guild and more!

Flight Coming Soon™ to Warlords! | Convert to Raid Ep184

This week the CtR crew is back to talk all about the busy week in WoW! Blizzard posted a few announcements and other articles this week, the first being that Warlords Season 1 will be ending soon. This means patch 6.2 is around the corner, and we may even be able to make a good guess as to the exact date! The rage/debate for flying in Draenor has come to a definitive position from Blizzard. Players WILL be able to fly in Draenor after one character earns the achievement of Draenor Pathfinder. There are a number of different parts to this achievement (which the guys will tell you about), and once you get it all of your other characters will benefit! Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas and Community Manager Lore (Josh Allen) held the long awaited Q&A for game development, and covered a wide range of topics: Flying, Garrisons, Professions, Dungeons, Classes, and of course Raiding! The crew will take you through their highlights and give you the good, the bad, and the hilarious. Plus, the 6.2 Armor Preview, the news from all around Battle.net and much more!

| Convert To Raid Ep183

This week, the guys are back for all the latest WoW news… and beyond! Players got a preview of Hellfire Citadel in the form of a new post on the World of Warcraft website. Inside, it gives a broad overview of the characters and encounters raiders will face along with some very green pictures. Designers also gave some of their notes and insights on how they approached the encounters from a design perspective, which is a very cool twist! MMO-Champion released the latest raiding statistics for Blackrock Foundry. And while the health of raiding overall looks great, is there too large of a gap between heroic difficulty and mythic? The guys will give you the breakdown inside this episode. The Q&A with Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas was pushed back a week to make room for a Heroes of the Storm lifestream event, and players erupted online. The CtR crew takes a look at some of the issues Warcraft players are facing right now, including the fact that WoW has to share the spotlight with some of the new Blizzard IPs. Because it looks like we’re heading into a new age of Blizzard Entertainment, CtR tries out a new segment! The Battlenet News takes a look at the big headlines from other Blizzard games. Heroes of the Storm officially released this week introducing Johanna as the latest hero, Hearthstone will be offering hero skins soon™, and Overwatch has been releasing a ton of gameplay footage over the last couple of weeks. Also inside: World of Warcraft is to be one of the first to be inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame, fans react to Koltrane’s announcement last week, your questions and much more!
