WoW! Talk! #91: PUBG, Blizzcon, and WoW 2?
Could a PUBG-style brawl work? Also, Blizzcon speculation, and can WoW 2 happen?...
Patch 7.3 is out and the gang is finally here to talk about it! But first, Nick mentions the recent hurricanes and how Blizzard has released a charity pet, Shadow, with proceeds going to the Red Cross. Then, Rei and Eric discuss what they’ve been up to in game by going over all the content in 7.3. They talk about their time raiding in Heroic Tomb of Sargeras. Rei talks about healing an emerald nightmare group. Then they discuss their efforts questing in Argus. Eric mentions that he enjoyed the moment when Velen and Alleria battled Talgath, and Velen stopped him from escaping.
They briefly discuss the Mythic Dungeon Invitational, but cannot say much because no one has watched it. They then talk about the Lucid Nightmare mounts, and how Eric had to help Rei get through the Endless Halls part. Eric also complains about having to click on a chair when everyone else in the area was standing on top of the chair, making it hard to target. They also talk about the new Legion invasions and the Seat of the Triumvirate dungeon.
After patch 7.3, Nick runs through the recent news. The Blizzcon virtual ticket is now available for pre-purchase. There will be weekly videos including behind the scenes vignettes and developer Q&A’s. The ticket will also cover ALL the panels from Blizzcon, including the voice actor’s stage. The virtual ticket also comes with two in-game mounts, the Orgrimmar Interceptor and the Stormwind Skychaser. They alone are worth the $40.
In other news, Prince Farondis has disappeared from Azsuna. Also, Blizzard has a new show Gladiator’s Summit, about WoW PVP and Arenas. Also, Blizzard has purchased a building in Los Angeles that will become the Blizzard arena for esports events.
