Revisiting Reputations, the Trading Post, and the Lawsuit
We send off 2023 by looking back at changes to Reputation and how the Trading Post has been working out....
Nick, Rei, Eric, and Kurabara are back to talk about what’s been going on in World of Warcraft. But first they talk a little about the just released GTA VI trailer.
Back on topic, Rei talks about running Mythic+ and losing keys to people disconnecting. This leads to a discussion of people faking a disconnection to get out of a key and still to get loot from the run even if they were not there to complete it. Nick suggests some ways that Blizzard could try to mitigate these problems. They also talk about if Mythic+ is easier this season and wonder if they are too easy. Rei also talks about the Superbloom activity and how people keep dying because they are in Warmode.
Eric talks about completing Normal Fyrakk and starting on Heroic Amirdrasill. They talk about the Legendary axe dropping and the crafting mats required to equip it. Eric also talks about running a +20 Blackrook Hold at three in the morning.
Kurabara talks about playing his Evoker and saving his dream seeds for his BIS items. He talks about enjoying the post-raid story and his discovery of rule 34 as it applies to Alexstraza and Ysera despite them being sisters. He also shares an anecdote about finding out his sister’s boyfriend plays WoW.
Nick talks about Season of Discovery launching in Classic and the reception generally being positive since the servers and queues were overwhelmed. They talk about the controversy over the Warlock tanking rune being locked behind the Blackfathom Deeps raid and how Blizzard moved some mobs outside the raid so that was not a problem. Nick still expresses concerns about Classic+ adding too much new content.
In the news, Activision was trying to establish a mobile store on Android, and McFarlane Toys has pre-orders for a new series of Warcraft figures.
