WoW! Talk! #95: Antorus Before Us

November 28th, 2017

Nick, Rei, and Eric are here to cap off the Thanksgiving weekend by talking about WoW! First, Rei and Eric discuss what they’ve been up to, including fishing and raiding on some off specs. They have also been doing the special anniversary world bosses that are up for the week. Rei talks up her love of spreadsheets. They also talk about the Antorus raid coming on Tuesday and how they are struggling to get some new recruits ready. Eric mentions that he will look over some guides to raid but not until just before they go in. Nick brings up that we’re going to be getting the final Legion cinematic that should tie together several plot points and he is excited about that.

Nick also discusses what he’s been up to lately, including catching up on some panels from Blizzcon. He watched the Voice Actor panels, and feels bad that the panels were changed because they were now livestreamed. He also watched the Stay A While and Listen panel, which featured Jeff Kaplan and Ben Brode talking about how they got jobs at Blizzard, and then ended with a gut punch story from Micah Chatterton about his son. Nick then talks about the oddity of Vanessa Van Cleef waiting in the Rogue class hall for your character to level up. He also discusses how he wound up running and looting the Halls of Valor twice in one night.

Recently Ion Hazzikostas and Josh “Lore” Allen did a WoW Q&A. The gang talks about some of the news including confirmation that hunters are losing the second pet, the lack of class-based raid tier sets in Battle for Azeroth, and Ion’s decision not to share how Aman’thul’s Vision will drop at the end of the raid. Also, they mention that orcs and trolls will be able to stand up straight in BfA.

Elsewhere in the news, WoW Streamers have been invading RP realms as part of Project 60, and communities have clashed as a result.

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
