The Tauren & The Goblin #53: On Rastakhan and Katie’s Trip
Nick and Katie are back to talk about Battle for Azeroth this week! They lament not having played as much as they’d like, and then start to delve into what’s going on with Rastakhan given the revelation he will be an Alliance boss in Patch 8.1. Nick suggests that Bwonsamdi will be involved in the fight in some capacity, and then gives his crazy theory about the true nature of Bwonsamdi. This leads to a discussion of the loa and their relationship to the world, and how Bwonsamdi is different from all the other loa. Vol’jin’s claim that the loa told him to appoint Sylvanas as Warchief is examined. Nick wonders if the forces of Death are trying to claim the Horde for themselves. Katie shares her theories for Vol’jin and Bwonsamdi.
Also, Katie took a trip to Blizzard this past week. She talks about checking out the library which is like nerd heaven. She recounts getting to see the famous orc statue. She does not have any secrets about the future of WoW she can share.
Colin emailed in asking about where to start with the lore. Katie responds with her recommendations for the books to go with. He also asks about us covering Alliance lore, which will eventually be covered. Both Katie and Nick have interest in getting through Kul Tiras to talk about that side of things.
Also, Katie will be on the Warcraft Panel at Con Before the Storm this year, and Nick will be on the Pod Before the Con Warcraft show a few days earlier.
Our next show is scheduled for October 3, at 10:30 pm E, with special guests The Training Dummies, here to talk about Brewfest!
