Hexagons and Holes (on Journalism and Leaks)
Nick ponders what journalism is while everyone speculates on the expansion and also the Jailer is falling....
Nick, Rei, and Eric are back to talk about what’s been going on in World of Warcraft! Nick recaps the state of things, with the main content push of 9.2 wrapping up and the 10.0 announcement just a few weeks away, and Echo winning the World First Jailer race.
Rei talks enjoying the quest to hold Pocopoc like a child shooting things and also the quest to ride the robot where she could not strafe. She also talks about how legendary and tier slots don’t count for ilvl when she couldn’t trade her mythic +10 cape. She also talks about a streamer who raided with them this week and how enjoyable he was as a group member, and this leads to a discussion about the importance of strong social guild members for keeping guild morale up.
Eric talks about finally defeating Anduin (Andy) and getting Rygelon down to 1%. He expects they’ll have him down next time.
Nick talks about his time on the mission table and how he wishes for UI improvements to it. He discusses some add-ons with Rei.
In the news, the 9.2.5 PTR is up and various content has been datatmined. Also, Shadowlands season 4 was announced which means that we are about a year out from the next expansion. They talk about how season 4 will bring back old content and make it relevant so that that content drought won’t feel as long. Also, Activision Blizzard shareholders are to vote on the acquisition, and wowhead has a preview of the Sylvanas novel.
They take a quick look back at episode 108 and then Eric shares his opinion of the post-Anduin cinematic. He did not like how Arthas was treated.
