Nick, Rei, Harv, and Eric are back from their month long break and ready to talk about all the things they did, or didn’t do! First, Rei talks about raiding with too many people who don’t know what to do, and how that can be frustrating. She also mentions that she and Eric were working on the Mechagon achievements to unlock Mechagnomes. Then, she talks about finding an old thread regarding Everquest Next (which never came out) and flying, and compares that to how flying is handled now with achievements.

She also tells a story about a pugger who is having issues with his current guild master, as he made suggestions to the guild and was called stupid by his guild leader. This leads to a discussion about how people need to learn to provide criticism properly, whether it is amongst guildies or on the forums, as Nick even brings up recent turmoil in the Destiny community. They then talk about healing strategies and calling out healing so that groups can work together better. Finally, Rei mentions that she and Eric are in the Wrath beta, and Harv discovers live on the show that he is in it as well.

Eric talks about how the guild is 10 of 11 in Sepulcher of the First Ones and should be able to beat the Jailer before the August 2nd launch of Season 4. He also talks about playing his warlock and how healing strategies are the same or different when tanking and DPS’ing.

Harv recently sprained his arm and has been unable to play any games recently.

Nick pre-ordered Dragonflight and used his level 60 boost on his warlock and had a bad experience, as he accidentally changed specs from Demonology to Affliction and was forced to learn a new rotation in the tutorial which he did not need. He also complained about having to get all the items in his bags returned to him through the mail.

In the news, Dragonflight will be out by the end of the year, Blizzcon is returning in 2023, and there are an enormous number of Drakthyr customizations. Also, Blizzard has separated gender from body type in the character creation window.

Finally, we take a quick look back at episode 116 when people were starting to show their dislike of Azerite Armor.

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.
