WoW! Talk! #175: Croman the Barbarian and Leeroy Jenkins
Eric found Croman the Barbarian in Torghast and Nick found Leeroy Jenkins in an unexpected place....
Ryan aka Cognitive Pit from Warcraft Reloaded is here to join Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv in talking about Shadowlands and looking back at 2020! Ryan talks about his time in the Maw and gets into a discussion with Nick about mounting in the Maw. This leads to a discussion of Torghast and how the nerfs affected everyone, and how there is more Torghast coming soon. They also talk about flight and how it is so different being able to fly around in retail than it is having to walk everywhere in classic. Ryan mentions that he joined the Night Fae and Kyrian covenants on his characters.
Rei then talks about how she needs a dropdown menu to be able to choose the right food for her priest when she runs out of mana in mythic+ dungeons. She and Eric have been raiding Castle Nathria as well, and have five bosses down, as they are currently working on the Council. Ryan mentions that he is tanking for his guild and they beat Denathrius. They all discuss their favorite fights in Castle Nathria. Rei starts a discussion about different tools to use to track your progress, including Wipefest and Warcraft logs. Harv, meanwhile, hasn’t been on much to raid and has only managed to join the Night Fae covenant. Eric then talks more about his time in the Maw.
Next, the gang takes a look back at 2020, and how it was mostly spent in Ny’alotha through the content drought. They compare it to Siege of Orgrimmar. Ryan talks about the year in WoW Classic and how it was busy with Blackwing Lair coming out early this year and then the Ahn’Qiraj event and now Naxxramas keeping everyone occupied. Nick asks some questions about if the content will burn people out.
Next, they review the question of the week. Last week’s question was “What Shadowlands zone is your favorite?” This week’s question is “What are you looking forward to in WoW in 2021?” The gang talks about having a year of Shadowlands patches plus Burning Crusade in Classic, so 2021 is looking promising!
Finally, Nick looks back at WoW! Talk! #74, when the race for world first Nighthold was going on.

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!
