Druid Takes Down Onyxia SoloEdit
Didn’t this used to take 40 people? Serennia of the Vanquish guild on the US-Cho’gall realm pulled it off, and has the video to prove it. For those that remember Onyxia very well, the video is heavily edited. Phase 2 lasted 52 minutes for this guy.
The latest podcast talks about the the leaked information of WOTLK and we were given the warnings about posting, sharing, etc.. As I recall, the case was made in which this information was pretty much stolen.. aka a breach of contract..right? Did you guys give in and look up the information and satisfy your curiosity anyway?

You guys have a really great show with a lot of awesome info. My only complaint (which I’m sure you have heard before and will not change) is your bias towards the horde faction. I don’t mind hearing about it every now and then but it seems throughout the majority of the show there is some kind of alliance (usually gnome, which i’m not a fan of myself, but they are my faction!) bashing. I’ve done my fair share of horde bashing but honestly after hearing it over and over in your show I’m not sure if I will be tuning in again.
