It’s been a whole year since Shadowbringers came out! Yes, just that one year, actually. So we spent most of the episode reflecting on the release and how it’s been. There is plenty of story spoiler in here, so beware if you haven’t finished the expansion for whatever reason. We’re also still finding extra things to do in the game while we eagerly await the 5.3 patch and we discuss our various progresses (spoiler: Pan did finish mentor roulette) and also make some predictions for the 5.3 release date that range from hopeful to quite pessimistic.
