WoW! Talk! #153: Titanforging, Brazillian PUGs, and Invasion Thoughts
Eric's got a hot take on titanforging, Rei struggles with pugs, Harv is pet battling, and Nick is just watching the cannon balls fly by....
The gang is here to talk about the latest World of Warcraft news. But first, Rei, Eric, and Harv chat about what OoCS has been up to. They discuss Love is in the Air and how Harv doesn’t like the holiday. This is the one time Eric has bad mount luck. Then, they talk about their experiences with Horrific Visions and how everyone is at either level 9 or 10 with their cloak. Rei shares a story about how she was running mythic Hellfire Citadel and broke the instance. Matt, from the guild, managed to lose a shaman character, which is an impressive feat. The gang talked again about Horrific Visions and Eric suggested that coalesced visions should drop from raids or PVP. Harv shared that he’s been making a ton of gold since 8.3 dropped and gives Rei a run for her money in that department.
In the news, Nick mentions that Ion did an interview with Warcraft Radio about the World First Race. Complexity-Limit won the World First Race, beating Method by adding a pure shotcaller to the roster. Rei and Eric share their thoughts about giving up raiding to run the group instead. WoW Classic has trailers for Blackwing Lair. Blizzard posted a developer update on Warcraft III Reforged. Madeline Roux is writing the novel that will bridge the expansions: “Shadows Rising.” Blizzardwatch had an excerpt. Activision Blizzard earned $6.49 billion in revenue in 2019. They also dropped off the NVidia GeForce Now service.
Finally, Harv looks back at episode #52. Nick notes that the appearance of N’Zoth in Hearthstone 4 years ago impacted the reception of BfA today. They also talk about some of the April Fool’s jokes from that year.

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.
CD Project Red is sorry and says they'll do better, Lucasfilm Games is doing better in sharing the Star Wars license, and fan sites need to do better in speculating on trademarks.
We finish up Act 1 with The Heist, meet Claire, learn about Rogue, and meet T-Bug for the first time before infiltrating Konpeki Plaza.
This week we recap the Maldraxxus portion of the campaign and talk about the great characters you meet, like Marileth, Vashj, Emeni, and more!
Happy New Year! We're making somewhat educated guesses about what lies ahead in 2021 for Final Fantasy XIV! Also we goof off a lot in this one. It's fun!
