Episode #278: August 2018 Live Call in Show! is ready for Download!

Questions we covered today!

  • What do you think is the thing in BfA that we like the most? (Anything new)
  • What is something we don’t like in BfA?
  •  
  • How do I fix my Resto druid mana issues?
  • How excited are we for the raids coming out next week?
  • What was our leveling strategy for BfA?
  • How do we feel about BfA professions?
  • Do y'all think the fact that everyone knows dungeon and raid fight strategies going into the instance takes away from the fun/excitement of the game?
  • What are your thoughts about data mining when it comes to WoW? Have we gone too far? Or are we going to continue knowing about new content months before official announcements?
  • What other non-blizzard games do you play/played?
  • I’ve noticed with groups forming early on using similar armor types to increase chances of upgrades for others who may need them....that mail-wearing groups make it much harder to do since only Hunters and Shamans use mail. If you were to guess what Blizzard might create as the next mail-wearing class...what would it be?
  • What have been your favorite story bits so far in the expansion and can you tinfoil hat about where you want the story to go and where you think it most likely will go over the next few patches?
