WoW! Talk! #49: Legion Launch Speculation, Legendary Restrictions, and Class Fantasy

Rei makes her triumphant return as Nick prepares to step away for a bit! The gang talks about how Hellfire Citadel Heroic has been going for them, and then gets into the news with IGN’s preview of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1. Activision-Blizzard’s latest earning call did not go well, but without subscription numbers it seems WoW is doing fine. Legion is still on pace to launch in the summer. There’s an RPPM bug affecting trinkets. Legendaries will be restricted to one per character at the start of Legion, and will be disabled entirely for the Mythic World First race. Legion’s system requirements have increased significantly. And finally the gang discusses whether Blizzard’s idea of Class Fantasy is dangerous.

Also, a contest is announced to win a pet from the Blizzard Store! Send a timestamp and episode # from your favorite clips of the first 49+ episodes of WoW! Talk! to wowtalk@mashthosebuttons.com and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a pet. It’s an all new WoW! Talk!

Hosts

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.

Jeremy handles assets for the writing team and co-hosts the WoW! Talk! Podcast. When he isn't busy reading up on things related to, or raiding as a rogue on WoW, he's busy playing Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night over and over. He currently looks forward to when Samus and Alucard both have a new 2D side-scrolling adventure to burn through. He may be waiting a while, though.

Rei is the 1 of the 5 SEELE members and the Back Office Manager at MTB. She enjoys social gaming ( AKA gaming as a group IRL and GW / WoW ), cooking, anime, and spending WAY too much time organizing or making more spreadsheets.

Auto mechanic, car enthusiast, gamer, runner and almost never serious, Eric has been ditching responsibilities and gaming since age 7. His favorite genres are FPS and racing, although most of his game time is currently spent on WoW
