WoW! Talk! #118: Emissaries, Morhaime, and the Dev Q&A

October 17th, 2018

Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv are back to talk about all the WoW news from the last two weeks. But first, Rei talks about Order of Corrupted Souls getting up to Heroic Vectis. Nick asks about beating normal G’huun, which they did recently, and then shares his experiences running LFR. He complains about all the mechanics and wants his LFR to be easy so he can be carried. They also talk about running Mythic Dungeons in the future.

YepX sent in a tip about waiting until Wednesday when the Azerite Armor scales up to turn in your emissaries and quests, since you get more with your reward at the time. He also submitted a link to a forum post about a new holiday idea for quests and stories in the Tavern. Everybody likes the idea but Harv who doesn’t care to hear NPC stories, but even then he would welcome the ability to get more mounts.

Nick talks about some research he’s done on Emissary Quests, pointing out that there seem to be two groupings of Emissaries, with Tortollans, Talanji’s Expedition, and Zandalari making up one group, and the Voldunai, War Campaign, and Champions of Azeroth making up the second group. He also reviews how this relates to Legion emissary quests.

In the news, Mike Morhaime is stepping down as Blizzard President to be replaced by J. Allen Brack. Ion and Josh did a Dev Q&A that gave Nick hope for his Legion paragon rewards, calmed Harv about Azerite Armor, and concerned Eric about DK tanking. The Blizzcon schedule was released and people are expecting some sort of Diablo announcement, and Blizzard has added an Inclusion Nexus to the event. Nick closes the show by taking a look back at episode 18.

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

Chris has been playing World of Warcraft since 2007. When he's not playing his hunter in Azeroth, he's probably playing one of his many alt hunters. If not doing that, he's probably playing a different hunter.
