Wondrous Tails #34: 2019 Retrospective – Part 1
Hello 2020 and goodbye to 2019, you were here for way too long. In the first of our two part retrospective we examine the first half of 2019, starting with the series of 4.5 patches, Requiem for Heroes. While it feels like the 4.X series ended years ago, 2019 gave us some juicy story that gets even better after you finish Shadowbringers (SB2).
After we talk about ships crashing into walls like birds to a window, we soar into our favorite 4.5 changes and wonder how long 2019 really was because none of us remember it starting. We reflect on the split nature of the story as we saw comatose friends trying to distract from a literal war with a massive imperial threat, and discuss how that did (or did not) work for us.
Peppered within the story chat are some discussions about game systems introduced 12 short months ago that we also assumed were there all along, or at least for several years, and a couple brief attempts by Pan to drag us into the present by talking about Realm Reborn relics. Or… something.
