Grabs hold of download link like a drowning person would a life preserver. Needs me some Massively Overpowered goodness to help me get through the day. :-)

SO glad you decided to go the whole hog! I also think you're absolutely doing the right thing by making MOP a full website. For several years now, I always had the feeling that you were too big for the old format -- that the effort you all put in to mass.com couldn't be contained by the AOL blog format. Way to go! :)

Great to have the podcast back! One observation, Justin you didn't put the title music credit in the show notes. Is it original or from a game?
Look forward to many more!

Great 1st(?) podcast! Really happy that you are carrying on. Liked the feedback regarding pet classes, especially Loremasters in LOTRO. I agree that you can let the pets do all the dirty work while occasionally throwing balls of fire. Looking forward to seeing the site soon(tm)!

Welcome back Justin and Bree! It's great to hear you two ruminate on the world of MMOs once more. :-)

Thanks for taking my question on pet AI. I still think pet AI is atrociously basic. This is very noticeable in dungeons, raids and PvP though I'd add open world content at times as well. Blizzard has slowly made pets in WoW better over the years such as the ability to mitigate area of effect damage. But in general, pets don't keep up with human intelligence and the demands for competitive play.
