WoW! Talk! #110: Dev Q&A, Pre-Patch, and Classic.
Harv, usually in the chat room, joins us this week as there is a lot of stuff going on! First, Rei and Eric talk about how they’re still running Heroic Antorus. Nick meanwhile has been falling asleep in mythic dungeons and stuck in combat when he’s needed to log out.
Ion and Lore recently did another Dev Q&A. The big news coming out of this is that shaman and shadow priests will have to wait until patch 8.1 to have their classes fixed. Eric mentioned he plays a shaman and enjoys it now. He hasn’t tested shaman on the beta but now it is worth checking out. They also talked about PVP and how War Mode would work on RP realms. This lead to a discussion about how Blizzard tends to force PVP, and everyone recounts their initial decision of whether to roll their first character on a PVE or PVP server. It was also mentioned in the Q&A that mythic cross-realm raiding will be implemented after the top 100 horde and alliance guilds earn the mythic achievement. The gang talks about this while admitting that it won’t affect them. Also, players will no longer be able to swap gear in mythic+ dungeons, and only Harv seems slightly affected by that.
Blizzard recently put out a PVP Rating update, and the gang reviews that.
The last topic is the WoW Classic Dev Watercooler. The gang talks about the decision to use patch 1.12 and they all recount their time in vanilla (or whenever they started.)
Finally, in the news, we talk about the winner of the MDI, the shuttering of the WoW Mobile Armory app, the fastest way from Stormwind to Ironforge, and Ghostcrawler is @ghostcrawler once more!
We also look back at episode #10 from four years ago!
