Nick, Rei, and Harv are back to talk about all the news that they haven’t talked about the last few weeks. First, Harv talks about raiding and getting up to Sylvanas. Nick talks about how he got a mount as a result of the new patch. Rei talks about her experience managing the guild as they are raiding with a new group lately.

Next, they get into the news that they haven’t talked about lately. First, they talk about the Season of Mastery that is being implemented in Warcraft Classic. Nick compares it to the seasons in Diablo III.

Then, they talk about the Sunwarmed Feline coming to retail WoW. Nick wonders what this could say about where we are headed next. He also mentions an article that was released about the Shadowlands Character Creation UI Redesign. They also talked about the World of Warcraft Community Council and how it will only work if Blizzard listens to the Community. They also talk about how the Community is suspicious of content creators. Also, Ion gave an interview with Venturebeat about the state of WoW.

They also discussed the Blizzconline cancellation announcement. Nick is happy with this as it means Blizzard can take time to figure out what Blizzcon could be like in a virtual space. They also talk about Notorious Studios and how people were upset there were no women employees announced, and Nick points out that was the point. They also talked about Jen Oneal leaving Blizzard and how that’s a bad look for Blizzard. Finally, they talk about Bobby Kotick’s actions sacrificing his salary and the few wins that #ABetterABK earned, especially with the contractor improvements.

Hosts

Nick Zielenkievicz

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 Liou

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

Eric Knutson

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

Christopher Greer

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.
