WoW! Talk! #84: Vomiting on the Lich King (The ICC Experiment)

This week the gang tries something a little bit different. Nick needs his Unholy Death Knight artifact appearance from Ice Crown Citadel, so with little in the way of news to talk about, the gang travels to Northrend and raids during the show. On their way there, Rei and Eric talk about Tomb of Sargeras, having gotten up to the Fallen Avatar. Eric talks about Maiden of Vigilance being a special fight with its Guitar Hero-eqsue mechanics. (And shout out to all the color blind raiders!) He also mentions Mistress Sassz’ine as being a fun fight, as it involved fighting a whale and octopus as adds.

Rei brings up the Sisters of the Moon as a fight she enjoyed. Nick, meanwhile, has completed the achievement Free for All, More for Me, which requires doing each of the Free-for-All PVP World Quests in each Legion zone 20 times. Doing so rewards a mount. Nick also mentions that he was able to get the special mob to spawn from Army of the Dead and Apoclypse for his Unholy Death Knight, which is required to get the hidden artifact, and the reason the trio is heading into Icecrown Citadel.

In Icecrown, Rei mentions the time that some people got stuck on the Gunship fight for three hours until she showed up to help them. Eric also recounts stories from their past. Nick bumrushes Saurfang and prevents anyone else from getting loot, although he misses the chest because it blends into the decor. Rei and Eric reminisce about Precious and her ribbon not dropping. They then lead Nick to Professor Putricide, and Nick goes off to collect his appearance while Rei and Eric proceed. Putricide puts a debuff on Eric and Nick that causes them to be stuck throwing up. Nick’s debuff remains all the way to the Lich King, where he vomits on Tirion, Arthas, and finally Bolvar once the fight is over.

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.

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
