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