WoW! Talk! #163: On Classic w/ Blazzin Bob

July 22nd, 2020

Blazzin Bob, formerly of Watchpoint Radio and OWL Recap, joins us to talk about his new show Warcraft Reloaded! But first, Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv are here to talk about what’s going on in WoW. Rei got two BoE’s at once and also has been tanking on an alt while Eric dps’s. This leads to Bob and Eric chatting about tanking, and Nick asks about swap mechanics in classic. Eric then talks about getting into the beta and everyone raves about the enormous number of customizations that will be available in Shadowlands. Nick watched the Devolver Digital Expo and talks about how Blizzard should use the inspiration of Devolverland to make Blizzcon a virtual experience on the back of their MMO technology.

Bob talks about launching Warcraft Reloaded and his passion for WoW Classic. He talks about how he met his co-hosts Steelwolf and Cognitive Pit. He talks about missing dual spec and having to choose between raiding or PVP’ing. He and Nick reminisce about drain tanking as a warlock. He talks about the upcoming Ahn’Qiraj patch and the preparations players are already undertaking for it.

In the news, the Steamscale Incinerator mount is available with a six-month gametime subscription, or for $25 in the store. Blizzard is dropping the store fee for changing your character’s gender; that will now be available as a feature at the barbershop when Shadowlands launches. Also, in Shadowlands, Gladiator mounts will be account-wide instead of character specific.

Finally, the gang takes a look back at episode #63, when Legion finally went live.

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.

IT System Engineer by day, avid gamer by night! Bob has been gaming his entire life and first started standing on a chair playing the arcade version of Super Mario Bros. Now he plays all kinds of games but focuses mainly on Overwatch.
