Nick, Rei, and Eric are back this week to talk about what they’ve been doing in the lead up to the Dragonflight pre-patch. Also, with Patch 10.0 coming on October 25th, it is time for the Patch 10.0 quiz!

First, Rei talks about running LFR on her rogue and still managing to dominate the meters. This leads to a discussion about the basic WoW ability that is developed across playing alts. Nick also talks about playing his rogue alt and struggling on the character in Torghast. Rei then talks about DPS’ing as her holy priest and still handling the healing. The gang talks about how LFR allows for this type of performance. Next, they talk about Rei’s attempt at getting the Veilstrider title, and how it is a massive meta-achivement that requires attention. Nick wonders if it is better to work on a meta-achievement or to have a long grind waiting for something with a low droprate to drop. Ultimately he thinks he prefers the steady progress of an achievement. Rei also talks about some mythic+ and timewalking runs.

Eric meanwhile has been helping Rei in Torghast and talks about using meters in LFR.

Then, it is time for that patch 10.0 quiz. The format this time is different, as Nick asks questions about what is coming or being removed in Phase One of the patch on 10/25, in Phase Two on 11/15, or at Dragonflight’s launch on 11/28.

Finally, they take a quick look back at Episode #123, which was the first episode of 2019 and featured lots of discontent with BfA. They also acknowledge that Eric has been on the show for 200 episodes.
