Ali from Dungeon Fables and All Things Azeroth is here to talk with Nick and Katie about THE MOTHERLODE!! But first, she talks about recently doing the Alliance War Campaign, and her opportunity to see Grong, the gorilla boss from the upcoming Battle of Dazar’Alor, ahead of the raid. Katie hasn’t been playing much lately, and Nick complains about how he waited an hour and a half to run a dungeon. They also talk about how it seems everyone with an alliance character is leveling a Dark Iron Dwarf.

Nick then takes the opportunity to talk about his theory that Sylvanas killed Vol’jin. He goes over the cinematics from the Broken Shore, and admits that he remembers them differently. He points out that Vol’jin never says what name he was told by the spirits, although he is clearly addressing Sylvanas. He also notes that Sylvanas has demonstrated she understands how her actions can be interpreted in a public setting, and alleges that she knew she would be named Warchief and faked her shocked reaction. He then asserts that Blizzard is setting up the players choice with Zekhan to be framed around supporting the Warchief or Saurfang, and that once Sylvanas is revealed to be an illegitimate Warchief, players will be free to no longer support her. He compares the player to Nazgrim in Mists of Pandaria.

Finally, the trio gets into discussing THE MOTHERLODE!! They start with the end, and focus on how Mogul Razdunk is the final boss of the dungeon. He is also the head of the Venture Company, who have been pestering players since early levels in vanilla. Nick points out that he remembers killing them early on in Mulgore. Katie and Ali speculate about why Gallywix would work with Razdunk since its only to be expected that he would betray him. Then they talk about going back to Kezan, and the other bosses in the dungeon. Ali likes kicking footballs at the Coin-Operated Crowd Pummeler. Nick thinks Azerokk is reminiscent of Tectus. And Rixxa Fluxflame is not too noteworthy. Katie of course loves everything about the dungeon.
