Happy Holidays and Happy Feast of Winter Veil! The gang kicks off WoW! Talk! #71 by dispatching with the news that the Nighthold Raid will open on 1/17/17. Then they talk about what they’ve been doing in game, as Rei, Eric, and Jeremy have continued beating Emerald Nightmare, and doing a little Trial of Valor. Eric discusses what in particular he enjoys about the Guarm fight. Nick confesses that he bought gingerbread and milk from the auction house. Then the gang responds to an email from YepX, who asks about difficulty in finding a source to learn your rotation, raid difficulty, and group finder frustations.

Jeremy shares his experience as a fury warrior, and Nick advises YepX to find a rotation that works for him and modify that based on other sources that he reads. They also talk about how training dummies are not always the best way to learn a rotation. Nick also agrees that raid bosses are more complex, and then the gang talks about their Group Finder experiences. Nick advises starting your own group if you are not comfortable joining another group. The gang then talks about their favorite things from 2016: the end of Hellfire Citadel, Demon Invasions, the new content in Legion, and Friendship Moose. Overall, 2016 showed just how awesome Blizzard and the Warcraft Community can be when allowed to fulfill their potential.

Then, the gang shares what their wishes and predictions are for 2017. What are your Warcraft or Blizzard predictions for 2017? Share with us at wowtalkmtb@mashthosebuttons.com or @wowtalkmtb on facebook and twitter. Thanks for listening to us in 2016! We’ll all see you next year!!!


Nick Zielenkievicz

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 Liou

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

Jeremy Dupire

Jeremy handles assets for the writing team and co-hosts the WoW! Talk! Podcast. When he isn't busy reading up on things related to, or raiding as a rogue on WoW, he's busy playing Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night over and over. He currently looks forward to when Samus and Alucard both have a new 2D side-scrolling adventure to burn through. He may be waiting a while, though.

Eric Knutson

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
