We’re back to our normal triumvirate of hosts this episode as we start really digging into the new Shadowbringers expansion. Be warned that we will be discussing story through the first 4 levels (70-73), so if you’re taking your time in Shadowbringers, put us on your podcast backlog for a bit! We take a trip through the story from 70 to the end of 73, and discuss our favorite and least favorite aspects. There’s discussion of the dungeons, instances, and trials, the characters we meet again or for the first time; and all the wonderful music the game has to offer in the early portion of the expansion. In addition to discussing the story progression we take some time to discuss our feelings around the changes to our main jobs and the game’s overall combat mechanics. Finally, we round out with a quick selection of tips for folks getting to the end of the expansion story.
