It feels like only yesterday we were unwrapping the gifts of the 5.0 launch but we’re back again to break down a really jam-packed .1 patch. This one is spoiler-free too, in no small part because one quarter of our hosts are very bad at keeping up with the main story.

From the new alliance raid (it’s great) to the housing crisis (less great) and on to the pixielands we break down all the goodies we got over the last two weeks.
