  1. Really enjoyed the podcast. I finally caught up and have definitely enjoyed the ride. I'm looking forward to more if/when you do them, especially if you can get Faid to join you for every one.

    There are just a couple of things about which I wanted to put in my two cents. First of all, I won't go into a whole diatribe here, and it may just be wishful thinking, but I really doubt that MoP won't be out until November. Every previous expansion, there's been about 4-5 months between the start of beta and the release of an expansion. I don't see Blizzard randomly extending this for MoP even if circumstances were the same. As it is, MoP has arguably been farther along at every point we've seen than any other expansion, Blizzard has told investors it plans to release expansions more often, and I think they know they pushed their luck with Cataclysm as far as the gap between last content patch and release of new expansion. I would put my money on about September, perhaps late August.

    Secondly, I'd caution people that we may see prices for mats go up before they go down. This is what's been happening on my server (Horde-side, at least), as the demand is lessening somewhat, but the supply is going down faster. Herbs seem largely unaffected, but ore and volatiles are actually higher than they were a month ago, by a disturbingly large margin.
