WoW! Talk! #176: On Torghast, the Maw, & 9.1 Speculation
This week we consider when 9.1 may be coming, talk about what we like to yell in combat, and Harv hates the Maw....
Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv are all back in this new year to talk about what’s going on in World of Warcraft. First, Rei talks about how other people in her raid are not doing their preparation so she finds herself needing to do everything. She’s using a profession add-on to track who can make what, and that is not working lately. Also, people are trying to bring alts in to the main progression raid, which is hampering their progress. Then she and Harv get into a discussion of how to play a hunter since Rei has been playing a hunter alt. Additionally, she mentions that warlock healthstones have been nerfed as they cannot be brought into Mythic + instances; they must be created in the instance by the warlock, as people were getting them from warlocks and then bringing stone into the instance.
Eric found Croman the Barbarian in Torghast and now has him as a follower. Also, Order of Corrupted Souls was able to get through four more normal bosses to put them up to Sire Denathrius in Castle Nathria. Harv, meanwhile, still has not been playing much so he reviews how to use misdirect properly for Rei’s benefit and briefly asks about the Great Vault.
In the news, Complexity Limit won the world first race for Mythic Castle Nathria on December 23rd. Blizzard Cosplayer Jarod Nandin passed away from COVID-19 complications, and we extend our condolences to his family and friends. Blizzard announced World of Warcraft: Exploring Azeroth by Christie Golden. And Leeroy Jenkins made a cameo in the Politico Playbook this week.
Our question of the week is which Warcraft character would you like to find as a mission table follower in Torghast?
FInally, Nick looks back at episode 75 which featured talk about Nighthold and Heroes of the Storm.

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 Ops Director at MTB. She enjoys anime, baking, cooking, gaming ( fighting, puzzle, rhythm, RPGs ), and spending WAY too much time working on spreadsheets. Current Games: Tales of Crestoria, WoW
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.
Geo and SpryFox cover the latest poll, Taking the Angle, where they discuss the dream duo comp, hot mics, the best gun sights, plus much more!
This week we bid farewell to Anthem and possibly the term "looter shooter," we look further at the CD Projekt Red hacking, and Nick is getting tired of Henry Cavill being in all the video game movies.
This week we talk about the recent Classic Era server survey and break down a ton of loot systems in World of Warcraft.
This week the lads sit down and discuss the demo for Outriders and Robs goes deep into Valheim alongside other news and happenings.
