WoW! Talk! #155: On Blizzard Working Remotely, Burning Crusade, and an In-Office Blizzcon?
The gang is back to talk about what’s been going on with World of Warcraft this week!
First, Harv talks about how he hasn’t played much and doesn’t have much motivation beyond logging in to raid. Nick asks if Harv has been using the Winds of Wisdom 100% buff to experience, but he does not care to.
Then, Nick talks about Blizzard working remotely and some of the news that has come out about Bungie and how they are letting their employees work remotely. He talks about the art teams and cinematics teams being affected most by the change, and speculates that Shadowlands may be delayed a bit, or we may not see as many cinematics as we otherwise might because of the remote work.
The gang then talks a bit about Classic WoW as a way to let Blizzard survive the content lulls, and brings up the recent survey about character creation in Burning Crusade Classic. Everyone is excited for BC Classic but the real hype is for the eventual Wrath Classic.
Rei talks about raiding and how the guild has to practice social distancing on Il’gynoth.
Eric talks about how he is getting bored tanking the Ny’alotha raid. He feels the mechanics are mostly too simple and he is looking for a way to challenge himself as a tank or dps again.
In the news, Blizzard has made getting rank 3 essences across specs easier. They are also adding legacy loot to Legion dungeons now. Activision Blizzard has a new Chief Communications Officer. And the Anaheim Convention Center released a statement that hints at Blizzcon 2020.
Next, Nick and Harv look back at episode #55 from May 2016.
