WoW! Talk! #128: Raiding, Portals, and the Alliance Corp of Engineers

March 20th, 2019

The gang is back and they dive right into a discussion on raiding Dazar’Alor. Order of Corrupted Souls is 4/9H and they talk about raiding Normal and Heroic at the same time and making the switch to raiding just heroic. Rei and Eric discuss using Wipefest and WarcraftLogs to track player performance, and they discuss having difficult conversations with raiders about when its time to improve performance or step away from the guild. Eric laments having to do so when at the end of the day this is only a game. Rei says she prefers to make blanket statements to the guild when its more than one person affected, but ultimately may have to pull some people aside.

Everyone has been running timewalking dungeons. Nick complains about trying to do invasions as they run out of time. He also talks about the popularity of Zandalari trolls lately.

Blizzard released a statement about their reasoning for removing portals, so Nick reluctantly brings up the portal debate. His thinking is this will all blow over despite the loss of convenience but Eric and Harv are more concerned. They review several of the places were portals were removed, and Nick commends the new Portal Rooms for their appearance. Rei mentions that she and Harv are still farming materials from their farm in Pandaria, which leads to a discussion of whether it is worth it to get in on the market for the Sky Golem.

Finally, the gang talks about WoW! Talk! #28 and laments the lack of subscriber information since Blizzard stopped sharing that information. They also talk about Blizzard previewing Tanaan Jungle, and how that was supposed to be TImeless Isle 2.0.

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.
