Kurabara is off this week but Nick, Rei, and Eric are back to talk about what’s been going on in World of Warcraft. First, Rei talks about running the megadungeon and her experiences with a tank who would only communicate by typing Chinese. Then, they talk about playing when the power goes out as Rei felt bad that a key got bricked as a result, while Nick complains that he couldn’t play Diablo IV because of a power outage. Then, they talk about running Time Rifts and how those are helpful for leveling alts. They also talk about group loot and master loot and how personal loot should be brought back just for LFR.

Eric, meanwhile, talks about downing Heroic Sarkareth again and how he’s still a struggle. He also talks about watching the Great Push and trying to learn what he can from observing high level play. He talked about his experiences in the Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon and did not care for the Bullet hell part of the gauntlet.

Nick talks about his struggles completing the Trading Post for July, as the increased requirements were not copacetic with his desire to play Diablo IV. He also describes his experience queueing for timewalking dungeons and then getting dragged into Normal Brackenhide instead. This all leads to a discussion about the coming items on the trading post including the Blood Troll transmog in August and the class armor and weapon sets coming later this year. Nick posits that they are still going to offer tendies for real money but they are going to make players really clamor for it before doing it.

They also talk about Blizzcon tickets selling out and nerfs to the Burning Chains in Neltharus.

Finally, they look back at episode #143 and wonder about how much this year’s Virtual Ticket is going to cost.
