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

Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas sit down to talk with our Patrons about what's on their minds for the February Patron Q&A!

Episode #311: February Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

What's New this Week in World of Warcraft!

  • Turning on Warmode, how much honor I get from each kill, is there some sort of system for deciding how much honor you get?
  • Is honorable kills the only way to get conqueror of azeroth?
  • What are some Middle School appropriate games you'd recommend?
  • What should we expect from Azerite Armor and the Heart of Azeroth in the furture?
  • Thoughts on the negativity around this expansion?
  • What’s life like in a top 100 team?
  • If you could have any pet (class specific or battle) from wow in real life, what would it be and why?
  • I've started to think about tools to use outside the game to help me play the game, I've recently come across people using spreadsheets as help. Are you aware of it?, any known good resources, etc, etc. Also, anything else other than spreadsheets?
  • I was looking through some of my old hard drives and found some of my old raiding videos from WotLK and Cata which I used to see if I could change or do things better. And the age old question popped into my head of which was harder 10 man or 25 man raiding?
