WoW! Talk! #74: Nighthold and Scaling (Blizzard is Pimping)
Jeremy is still out with computer problems but Nick, Rei, and Eric are here to talk to you about World of Warcraft. Nick gets the obligatory Super Bowl talk out of the way, and then Rei and Eric talk about getting past the Star Augur boss in Nighthold with his crazy backgrounds. Eric talks about changing strategies to get past Tichondrius. Nick mentions a site which tells you how many legendaries you should have received by now, so you can tell if you are overdue for your legendary or not. Rei mentions a guild member who is hording artifact power, so Nick brings up how artifact power will work in 7.2 to let the guildie know that he should not be doing that. Then the gang discusses the drama surrounding the Race to World First for Mythic Gul’dan. Congratulations to Exorsus for winning, but Serenity was hindered last week when someone associated with Method managed to get them locked out of their instance.
Method was also DDOS’ed, but it ultimately didn’t matter as the win came in the second week of raiding. The mobs in Silithus are still scaling, and the gang discusses how there should be restrictions on scaling, and how annoying it is to farm old materials when the mobs can attack you. Rei mentions dealing with that when she visits her farm. Blizzard banned several botters again. (STOP BOTTING, PEOPLE!!!) Mike Morhaime came out against President Trump’s recent Executive Order restricting travel from several Muslim countries, and the show gets political as Nick supports Morhaime for doing so. Then Nick admits to having enjoyed himself a little too much during the Super Bowl earlier. All this and more on this week’s WoW! Talk!
