WoW! Talk! #174: More Shadowlands and 2020 Thoughts (feat. Cognitive Pit)
Cognitive Pit from Warcraft Reloaded is here to close out 2020 with thoughts on Shadowlands and a brief look back at 2020!...
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 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!
