Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

Alright stop, collaborate and listen! Jed is back with a brand new episode!

The Great Virtual Hope

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Our first live episode! In this episode, we discuss the upcoming addition of Virtual Realms to the game. Virtual Realms are sets of realms that are joined together and act as one realm. Players on the same Virtual Realm will be able to join guilds, access a single Auction House, join arena teams and raids, as well run dungeons or group up to complete quests.

We also discuss a new raid tier in between LFR and Normal called Flexible Raids. These raids will allow anywhere from 10-25 players (and anywhere in between) to join a group and complete a raid. This will also work through BattleTag/RealID, allowing people from other realms to complete current content.

As always, if you have a question/comment or if you are a GM or officer and would like to be on the show, you can send a message to us at or on Twitter at @leaderpodcast! We will also be recording live from now on, so be sure to check us out when we are broadcasting here.

All Mages, All the Time

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

This episode, we had Malon of @ArcaneTactics fame on as our guest. He is an officer in the guild Nightshift on Wildhammer EU. We discuss how raiding has changed throughout the expansions, switching from 25-man to 10-man raiding, and recruitment. We also discussed Malon’s ongoing #MageTips on his Twitter feed! (I cannot recommend reading them enough for any raiding Mage or raid leader out there.)

We would love to hear more from you! Send any questions, comments, or feedback into us at or on Twitter at @leaderpodcast.

In this episode, we have Boom aka @RogueDarren as our guest and talk about his guild Chi Cerca Trova on Durotan. CCT is a 25-man guild, so we discuss some of the challenges with keeping a 25-man guild running.
