WoW! Talk! #102: Talking in Guild Chat, Warcraft III, and Transmog.
Nick, Rei, and Eric are here to talk about the latest goings on in the World of Warcraft! First, Rei and Eric talk about their time doing mythic plus dungeons and getting Heroic Argus down to 1%. Then Nick talks about how much fun he had doing the Rogue class mount questline where he had to sneak into various capitol cities to assassinate characters.
Warlock Jr emailed in some questions! First, he asks the gang what other games they like to play. Eric plays lots of shooters, Rei plays lots of crazy games, and Nick just plays Hearthstone. Then, he asks how to break out of your shell when joining a new guild. Everyone gives him the advice to just start talking. Its also recommended to run dungeons and raids with others to give something to start talking over.
The Warcraft III Invitational happend last week, much to Nick’s surprise. Alisaunder from the chat room provides the info that Foggy won, and that ongoing patch support was announced for Warcraft III. There was no announcement of a WCIII Remastered, but Nick and the gang think they could see something coming on mobile since Blizzard is all about that space since Hearthstone.
In Transmog news, people were upset with changes in 7.3.5 that caused old dungeons and raids to drop personal loot, making it impossible for people to farm for any transmog outside of their class. Blizzard announced a fix to this that will allow raids 10 levels or lower to drop loot as though a full group is there, so players can resume farming as they once did. Nick brings up a reddit post that talked about changes to the transmog system that should be made, and the gang agreed they were spot on.
Nick looks back at WoW! Talk! #2, from October of 2013. Warlords of Draenor was about to be announced and Nick found a pretty accurate leak. Also, there was talk about connected realms and openQueue.
In the news, there will be an achievement to commemorate the Starcraft 20th Anniversary, battle.net got WoW specific icons, and the Trial of Style returns this week!
