Welcome to Plunderin’ Spicy, our new show hosted by Kinder where we talk about the newest rage in battle royales: PLUNDERSTORM!

Actually, Nick, Rei, Eric, and Kura are here to talk about the big reveal from the 10.2.6 Patch. Rei talks about getting into Plunderstorm and figuring out how it worked. She also talks about some of the bugs with the patch including her UI resetting and chat and other server features being broken. Then Rei talks about what else she’s been doing in game such as playing with an old friend and then suffering from disconnects. They review the Hearthstone event and how plenty of people did not get the drops they wanted. Rei also talks about the struggles with learning to tank.

Eric talks about how instead of raiding they ran two groups through mythic dungeons. He also mentions that he does not like Plunderstorm.

Kura brings up that he’s getting orange numbers in his mythic keys. He’s also getting better at playing his Evoker, and his DK is doing well too. Kura played some Plunderstorm duos with Nick and the two shared some of what they learned. Nick talks about how Plunderstorm is reminiscent of when Hearthstone added Battlegrounds, and he is thinking that this could wind up as its own game mode possibly on console. They also talk about some of the outrage at the mode being caused by people not understanding how Blizzard was promoting it.

In the news, Season 4 will have Awakened Raids instead of fated raids. Also, John Hight’s GDC talk revealed WoW’s player numbers for the first time in years and also highlighted where Blizzard went wrong with Shadowlands. And there are new mounts available in the game for completing the meta-achievements for Shadowlands and Dragonflight, the latter rewarding the much requested Taivan mount!

Finally, Nick looks back 100 episodes when they were comparing WoW and Destiny 2.
