WoW! Talk! #136: On Patch 8.2

July 9th, 2019

The gang is taking a break from playing Patch 8.2 to talk about all the new content they have to work through! First, Rei talks about some new pugs the guild ran with and how they performed. They discuss pugging Mekkatorque and how Eric hates his dialogue.

Then, the gang talks about Patch 8.2. Rei went to Mechagon and there’s so much junk to pick up that she has no bag space. Nick talks about doing Nazjatar and the gang looks at the new follower quests. Nick wishes they could be better followers. Harv complains about the verticality of Nazjatar and enjoys the relative flatness of Mechagon. Rei unlocked the jetpack so she is excited.

They also talk a little about the new transmog features. Nick just wants to get to the Tauren Heritage Armor – he knows that flying will come in time. Nick also points out that the pattern for emissary quests has changed and he will track them.

In the news, Blizzard announced the Sylverian Dreamer mount, which many are thinking points to the Dragon Isles as part of the next expansion. The mount is $25 in the store, or free with a 6-month subscription. Many in the community are upset about another store mount. The gang discusses the pros of using a 6-month subscription when possible. Blizzard also announced a sale on the CE items for Warlords, Legion, and BfA.

A remastered version of the final Warcraft III Human campaign cinematic was released.

Finally, the gang looks back at episode #36, when flying was just coming to Warlords of Draenor.

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.
