WoW! Talk! #190: The Lawsuit
Some raiding chit-chat and then we talk about the news....
Patch 9.1 is finally here and Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv have had a chance to play it and share their thoughts! First, Rei talks about running Mythic+ and her joy at all the other people she is seeing logged into the game with the guild. Then she talks about her attempt at Torghast trying to get the Highlander bonus where you only have one of any given anima power, but she laments that sometimes you are forced to choose an anima power you already have. Then she talks about her experiencing running Tazavesh, the Broker MEGADUNGEON. She accidentally joined a group running it on hard mode, and she and Eric spent 6 hours clearing the dungeon. The good news is that they did enjoy the Infinite Pirate Dragon and they got their mounts for the experience so it was not a total waste.
Eric, meanwhile, has been enjoying the new Sanctum of Domination Raid. Order of Corrupted Souls is now 5 of 10, with Painsmith being a difficult boss. Eric mentions that his current off-tank, Scott, is taking a break from the game, so he is training Matt to be his new off-tank, and Nick asks questions about how transitioning amongst off-tanks works. Eric also laughs about an item he found in Patch 9.1 – a Teleporter Repair Kit which talks about righty-tighty, lefty-loosy being universal, but Eric, as a mechanic, cites examples that are contrary.
Harv hasn’t had much time to play but he is at renown 42 now.
Nick talks about the Sapphire Skyblazer Mount which is available with a 6-month subscription or for purchase in the store. He tries to guess what else the developers could be working on to match the mount.
This week’s question of the week is what did you think of Garrosh’s fate in the raid?
Nick looks back at episode #89 when the gang ran Siege of Orgrimmar and Nick tried to tame Thok.

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.
