WoW! Talk! #165: On Classic and Beta

August 20th, 2020

Max aka Steelwolf from Warcraft Reloaded is here with us today as we talk about recent events in Classic.

But first, Rei, Eric, and Harv are now in the beta! Rei and Eric have been playing and Eric is enjoying the return of long lost abilities. He also enjoyed clearing out his bagspace after copying his character over. Rei, meanwhile, has been tanking on retail.

Steelwolf and Harv, meanwhile, participated in the opening of the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj on classic. Harv made sure to get his Scarab Lord title, while Steelwolf slept through it. They also talked about how on the Sulfuras server, some guilds got banned for griefing and then were blocked from completing the quest because people were killing everyone in Silithus, including the innkeeper. Nick mentions a server where the alliance and horde got layered apart. Harv talked about getting 1 fps at times. Overall, the event sounds like it went about as well as could be expected.

Steelwolf talks a bit about recording Warcraft Reloaded.

In the news, Reckful has an NPC in Shadowlands. Nick is excited for new hunter pets, and Steelwolf has questions about Pet Battles. The Shadowlands pre-patch is out, which would be consistent with a mid-October patch date followed by a mid-November expansion launch. Also, there is community drama over a new toy in Shadowlands, the Mirror of Envious Dreams, which gives the user the appearance of tier 3 gear seemingly endlessly. Finally, Blizzard employees have submitted demands to management for fair pay.

Last week’s question of the week was “What are you doing in game?” Thanks to Kurabara, Ali, Frazley, and Felblades for answering. This week, we want to know what other games are you playing other than WoW? Rei is playing Animal Crossing, Eric enjoys Death Stranding, Harv loves Star Trek, Steelwolf is into retro-gaming, and Nick touts Arcade Spirits. Let us know what you’re playing on discord or twitter or by email!

Finally, we look back at episode #65, when everyone finally got to raid and run dungeons in Legion.

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.

Max loves to play games and make music! He started off with Warcraft II & Beyond the Dark Portal alongside Diablo 2, Mario Golf 64, and Heroes of Might and Magic II: The Succession Wars. He brings huge heat and is always down to slam dunks.
