Nick, Rei, and Harv are back and this week they are joined by Just Crisp to talk about Mythic Raiding! They talk about how Just Crisp has been raiding since ICC and mythic raiding since Warlords of Draenor. They talk about his experiences raiding in Sanctum of Domination, being 5 of 10 and stuck on Painsmith because of a desyncing bug that is making the boss more difficult than it should be. They also talk about the preparation required to raid mythic, including the collection and maintenance of consumables, as well as the effort spent on running carries through heroic to fund the enormous cost of raiding. They discuss Just Crisp’s history and his class choices, raiding as a hunter, working on a demon hunter, and starting as a warrior.

They talk about the dedication required to be a streamer and his goals for 2022 to stream World of Warcraft daily for the year. They also talk about what can happen in a guild when they are struggling against a boss, and how they may have to talk to lower performing players to get them to improve. They discuss the mechanics on Painsmith and other raid bosses. They also talk about how Blizzard has been handling mythic raiders for the last few expansions, and if gearing is better in BfA than it has been in other expansions. They also talk about what is coming in Patch 9.2, in particular the second legendary which is gated behind a twenty-eight day reputation grind.

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.
