WoW! Talk! #77: Lawncare Thoughts and the Patch 7.2 Quiz

Jeremy returns in time to talk about Patch 7.2! But first, he, Rei and Eric have been raiding heroic nighthold and discuss their experiences getting up to Heroic Star Augur. They also tried some rated battlegrounds which didn’t go very well. Nick meanwhile has been checking out Un’Goro Madness and really didn’t find anything worthwhile there. Dave emailed in to ask about Inscription, and the gang talked about Vantus Runes being valuable, while Jewelcrafting seems especially underserved. Alisaunder wrote in to advise Nick on how to handle his pet battles, and Nick mentioned that he’s been using his garrison and the pet battle world quests to build up his menagerie. Nick then recounted a story that made him sound like a whiny teenager again because he didn’t want to mow the lawn, and compared it to the pet battling he doesn’t want to do, but is more willing to do because he gets a mount from pet battling, and having a mowed lawn isn’t worth the same to him. Rei proves herself to be the most adult member of the show, as she does all her chores first before playing.

Nick then asks everyone else to take the Patch 7.2 quiz to prepare for the coming patch. Its already on the background downloader with a release candidate on the PTR, so it will most likely go live in the next two weeks. Despite not taking it, Nick is the real winner of the quiz because he’s too proud of his Sentinax joke. In the news, Blizzcon 2017 was announced for 11/3 and 11/4, For Azeroth has been extended to 3/26, Brian Holinka and Matt Goss each did Developer Q&A’s, Dalaran exploded on the PTR with PVP as everyone got to fight Nomi, and finally Blizzard announced the WoW Arena Championships, which prompted a quick discussion of PVP in Call of Duty and Destiny.

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.

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.

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.

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
