The Tauren & The Goblin #7: On Winter's Veil
Winter's Veil is a time of cheer, yet it pits Tauren reverence vs. Goblin greed....
Nick and Katie sit down for the first time since Blizzcon to talk about how the announcements will affect the story of Warcraft to come. First, they discuss the class mounts, in particular their love for the priest mount. Katie also loves the rogue mount, and they talk about the druid mount as well. They also argue that druids should be able to transmog their feral appearance, and discuss how the art team isn’t big enough to support creating all these different appearances while maintaining racial identity within them too. Then they move into talking about patch 7.2, the Tomb of Sargeras. We’ll finally be going down into the Tomb (except when we go up into the Temple to do the dungeon instead), and we’ll be facing the Corrupted Avatar of Sargeras as well as Kil’jaeden. After claiming victory at the Tomb, the next step will apparently be to go through the portal to Argus. What will we find there?
Nick then tries to predict what the next expansion will involve when we return from Argus. (Hint: It involves the Old Gods!) Before leaving Argus though, it would seem that we should meet up with Turalyon and Alleria. Nick also discusses the quest to get Alleria’s bow and how he feels odd carrying around a Windrunner family heirloom in his bag for no great reason. With Alleria returning, the direction of the plot for Sylvanas and Greymane seems like it may come to the forefront again. They speculate on how long Sylvanas will remain as Warchief and why she is better for the game in that role than Vol’jin or Baine. Finally, they talk about the updates to Gadgetzan introduced in Hearthstone expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. Katie loves the Grimy Goons and both she and Nick would love to see an updated Gadgetzan in Tanaris, even if it means an updated Tanaris. They talk about all the great things about how Gadgetzan is presented in Hearthstone and how it would (or would not) fit in to the current World of Warcraft.
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.
Katie is a long time gamer who has fallen in love with multiple genres. She started young by playing Nintendo 64, Spyro, and Blizzard games such as Warcraft II with family, then eventually moved into playing games in both my leisure time and as a occupation. She loves being immersed in different universes and exploring the characters that live in them, as well as just playing games for a good time.
