Happy Blizzcon Hangover, Mobs and Minions! This week is ALL about Blizzcon with our Blizzcon Wrapisode (really, Bay? Wrapisode?). Bay and Ana sit down with our guests Affinitii of <Blood Legion> and Reesi of <CFT> (yours truly!) and talk about all the changes coming to World of Warcraft in Warlords of Draenor. Beware: Anafielle rages are rampant this show; along with Affinitii as he gives her a run for her money.
We start off the show with the usual backgrounds of each of the guests and then quickly transition into a discussion about Blizzcon. For Bay, Reesi and Affinitii it was their first ever live experience; For Ana, her third. Each talk about their own experiences with Blizzcon and what it was like attending such a huge event, as well as what kind of panels were attended and what meet ups went on. Bay met Ghostcrawler and Ana had a complete fangirl moment with Mike Morhaime.
Also, Reesi was apparently Patient Zero at Blizzcon. If you got sick after attending, blame her!
After everyone talks about their Blizzcon experience, Bay moves on to talk about the changes to gear in Warlords. It is a very big deal for progression guilds as it gives them more control over loot. And, sorry Affinitii, you’re just never going to get gear. In addition to the armor changes, they go on to discuss the removal of some stats as well as the addition of tertiary stats. Psst. Item squish! - Affinitii, tell us how you really feel on bosses healing all the time?
Wait for it… New raid structure! Everyone on the show is really looking forward to Mythic raiding and the impact on the game of only have one competitive size for raiding. Reesi talks about it from a 10 man perspective and how she and her guild are going to approach bumping up to Mythic raiding (please, oh please, have a sale on character transfers!) and Bay, Ana and Affinitii talk about what it’s going to mean for top guilds and their progression race. Balance is another huge aspect, as well. One difficulty means it will be much easier to balance every fight.
We finish off the show with our Mob and Minion Q&A and discuss whether or not it’d be a good idea to attempt a merger as a 10 man guild going into Mythic raiding.
