WoW! Talk! #67: Impression and 2016 Blizzcon HYPE
The Blizzcon Hype train starts as the gang speculates on Warcraft IV, Patch 7.2, and more! New WoW! Talk!...
Rei, Eric and Jer are up to facing Xavius, but haven’t downed him yet — probably because Jeremy has yet to unlock his third relic slot on his warrior. Eric was even nice enough to donate a mythic relic to him, too! Eric goes over their struggles with Xavius. Nick then brings up the topic of crafting mats in Legion, and how expensive they are. Rei advises using Warlords of Draenor flasks and potions since they are readily available. Nick has secretly been hoarding fjarnskaggl. Bonus events are back, and Nick enjoyed the Outland timewalking, although he wonders about how difficult it is supposed to be. Jeremy talks about why he hasn’t completed his class hall quest yet, and Nick shares his experiences working to unlock his other Death Knight artifacts. Eric was able to get the hidden appearance for the Blook Death Knight artifact.
In the news, Tom Chilton is working on another project at Blizzard so Ion Hazzikostas has replaced him as Lead Game Designer on World of Warcraft. Perhaps this is related to Tom slipping the subscription numbers in an interview with a Polish gaming magazine, although Blizzard denies that happened. Patch 7.1 is coming on 10/25 with the Karazhan mega-dungeon, the Trial of Valor raid, and the Blood of Sargeras vendor. Withered J’im was the world boss for two straight weeks and Blizzard has said they will fix it. There was also a hotfix applied to Mythic+ Artifact Power rewards. All this and more in this week’s WoW! Talk!
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
Jeremy handles assets for the writing team and co-hosts the WoW! Talk! Podcast. When he isn't busy reading up on things related to, or raiding as a rogue on WoW, he's busy playing Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night over and over. He currently looks forward to when Samus and Alucard both have a new 2D side-scrolling adventure to burn through. He may be waiting a while, though.
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
Melty Blood gameplay, Granblue has a patch, SFV new skins, Nick All Stars Brawl is legit and a cake for going 0-2.
