WoW! Talk! #100: A Look Back and a Look Forward
We look back at our first episode and we look forward to Battle for Azeroth!...
Patch 7.3.5 is upon us but first Nick is a bit preoccupied by the Eagles heading to the Super Bowl. Once that’s out of the way Rei and Eric talk about checking out the sword in Silithus. Nick mentions that he’s been playing WoW more again. Rei and Eric talk about some of the bugs they experienced after the patch. Nick discusses his enjoyment in doing the Insurrection storyline in Suramar and praises Blizzard’s character interaction.
YepX tweeted some feedback from the last episode. He comments that Blizzard should allow for solo queuing of raid bosses, and Rei suggests that instead it is much more valuable to work with players who can teach you how to do the boss right. YepX also says that the Blood of Sargeras missions are worth the reward. Everyone agrees that follower equipment should be Bind-on-Account.
The gang then discusses the problems with patch 7.3.5 including the extended maintenance on Friday. Nick talks about how there was a lack of testing on the PTR for such an ambitious patch, and Blizzard needs to figure out a way to encourage people to play on the PTR. Nick also points out that complaints about leveling being slowed can be offset by how long it takes to grind out the gold for four WoW Tokens.
Nick also apologizes for not being ready for Patch 7.3.5 last episode. Since that content is live, the gang decides to have him quiz Rei and Eric on the content in Patch 3.3 Fall of the Lich King. Play along at home and compare your score!
In the news, best wishes to Chris Metzen who is recovering from spinal surgery! Also, the Mythic Dungeon Invitational is returning in 2018.

Melty Blood gameplay, Granblue has a patch, SFV new skins, Nick All Stars Brawl is legit and a cake for going 0-2.
