Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players!

On this episode Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas find out what's on the TSZ patrons minds with the May 2022 Patron Q&A!

Episode #520: May Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

This week we asked our Patrons "What's coming to World of Warcraft that you are looking forward to most?"

  • Jason and Spencer's answer to the question.
  • Do you believe that we can expect a fundamental shift in the way Blizzard designs future expansions and communicates with its players, or do you think they will revert back to "systemcraft" and "knowing what's best" for the players?
  • What you guys think is the best cinematic reveal to date (including vanilla)?
  • How do you feel Blizzard is doing on tuning each of the raid difficulties and what, if anything, do you feel they need to communicate about the tuning?
    • Is there less opportunity to recover from mistakes made during execution, even with gear appropriate for the raid?
    •  What do you like about how the raids are designed and what would you like to see changed?
  • I want to know what is your fondest memory of WoW?
  • What would y’all think about them bringing back the scrap bot from BFA but also have it return valor spent to upgrade said item along with the crafting materials for that type of gear?
  • With the training of our dragonflight and the importance they’re putting into it. Do y’all think that either a whole raid, a raid boss or a mythic specific dungeon will require mechanics using your Dragon like Occulus did in Wrath?
  • When doing less important WoW tasks, are you in game soundtrack or listen to music kind of people?

Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players!

On this episode Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas find out what's on the TSZ patrons minds with the March 2022 Patron Q&A!

Episode #511: March Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

This week we asked our Patrons "What do you think of ZM so far?"

  • Jason and Spencer's answer to the question.
  • Brainstorming better loot systems for the Game.
  • "How you feel about the race to World first and the complains about the length. Personally I don't have an issue with the fact, that it takes more than two weeks to kill the final boss of a tier. The event around the race is something the guilds decide to do and I think Blizzard is not supposed to balance the game around these."
  • "I'd be interested in a "Expansion Review", top things you liked, top things you disliked. Maybe a wishlist for next expansion. Points to sustain, points to improve."
  • "Would be really interested to hear you guys discuss the proposed Season 4 that's planned for later this year and what you think about it."

Feb 1, 2022

Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players!

On this episode Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas find out what's on the TSZ patrons minds with the January 2022 Patron Q&A!

Episode #501: January Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

This week we asked our Patrons "What's your favorite tier set of all time?"

  • Hey Spencer and Jason, I have two questions and wanted to ask before I forgot them. The first one being how do you two feel about content creators/ the people how follow them trashing on WoW excessively? I am not saying all creators/followers are like this but I think some "groups" are just a little too harsh or seem like they just want to start arguments for lack of better words and it really brings me down.

    The second question being on a lighter note, if there was one zone you could pick to live in which one would it be and why?

  • Why did you first choose the current role (healer, tank, dps) you are in and what makes it fun/exciting for you?

  • My question would be if you think we are seeing more of the shift they were doing in 9.15 (respecting players time, more alt friendly) in 9.2?

  • I can't get invited to keys, any suggestions?
  • Set piece drops vs. Tokens. Do you think their newly announced system, including tokens, will provide the bad luck protection, while still allowing teams to progress at the speed they desire?
