Nick, Rei, Eric, and Harv are back this week to talk about all the latest goings on in the World of Warcraft community! First, Rei talks about what she's been doing in game. She talks about how she's been working on her professions, and how the tool to check guild member's professions has been fixed. This leads to a discussion of online chat and how people need to be in the chat program to respond to requests to do stuff in game. The group also goes off on a tangent talking about keyboards and typing speeds.
Eric talks about how the guild has beaten Normal Sylvanas and Heroic Terragrue. Nick asks if anyone got Sylvanas' bow, and this leads to a discussion about non-hunters using the bow and letting it split into glaives like in the cinematic.
Harv, meanwhile, has been enjoying the raid. He mentions that he likes the Kael'thas fight as there's alot of AOE for him to burn down. They also talk about when to cast hero\lust and talk about raid mechanics from prior raids including Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'Alor.
Nick talks about the recent events surrounding Blizzard. J Allen Brack has resigned and has been replaced by Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra. There has been no acknowledgement by Activision Blizzard of the employee's demands. Nick mentions that Luis Barriga, Jesse McCree, and Jonathan LeCraft are no longer with Blizzard. He talks about how there is currently a stalemate where the company is not acknowledging demands and that is how the company wants it as they are hoping to wait out the employees.
They also discuss an article that compares the toxicity in WoW and Final Fantasy XIV and says that Square Enix did a better job of moderating their community early on to keep it clean, and it has paid off.
Finally, they discuss episode #92 where murlocs seemed like they might be playable.
