On Classic and Beta
Steelwolf from Warcraft Reloaded joins the gang to talk about the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj while Rei and Eric are enjoying the beta....
Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv are here to talk about all things World of Warcraft! Eric is in the beta, but he hasn’t played much. He comments briefly on playing a mage in Exile’s Reach, the new starting experience. This leads to a discussion of bag space.
Harv has been playing classic and poked around the Ahn’Qiraj events. He still has aspirations of getting the Scarab Lord title. He also slept through raid last week.
Rei has running with several pugs lately. She, Eric and Harv review their performance, and Eric gets stressed out. They talk about pugging at the end of an expansion and compare BfA to other recent lenghty content lulls. Harv shares a story where he stacked acceleration on Thok back in Mists.
Nick considers the recent rumors of World of Warcraft coming to the Xbox. While he doesn’t believe them, he speculates that we may not get a launchdate for Shadowlands until the Xbox launchdate is announced, as perhaps Shadowlands would be a launch title. He also considers that WoW may not be explicitly coming to Xbox, but with Xbox gamespass allowing Xbox games to play on your pc, maybe it can also allow pc games to play on your XBox.
In the news, major changes to Pet Battles are on the Shadowlands beta. Also, the Blizzard Gear store has a Vol’jin statue.
And in late breaking news, Jason Schreier at Bloomberg News released a report that Blizzard underpays its employees. Nick looks over the report and says Blizzard probably should pay more but needs more information.
Our question of the week is What are you doing (or not doing) in World of Warcraft?
Finally, we look back at episode #64 in the aftermath of everyone hitting 110 in Legion and Chris Metzen stepping away from Blizzard.

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
Rei is the 1 of the 5 SEELE members and the Ops Director at MTB. She enjoys anime, baking, cooking, gaming ( fighting, puzzle, rhythm, RPGs ), and spending WAY too much time working on spreadsheets. Current Games: Tales of Crestoria, WoW
Auto mechanic, car enthusiast, gamer, runner and almost never serious, Eric has been ditching responsibilities and gaming since age 7. His favorite genres are FPS and racing, although most of his game time is currently spent on WoW
Chris has been playing World of Warcraft since 2007. When he's not playing his hunter in Azeroth, he's probably playing one of his many alt hunters. If not doing that, he's probably playing a different hunter.
Hammerdance returns this week along side Tableslam and NoHitJerome!
Rei and Eric had fun watching the MDI while Kura was enjoying the questing and Nick is looking forward to some books.
A grab bag of topics ranging from early pulling to getting stranded for a day in Frankfurt.
Its a wild ride this week, strap in!
