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 September 2021 Patron Q&A!

Episode #478: September Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

What’s New this Week in World of Warcraft!

  • Could Blizzard craft a good survey to capture player feedback, do you think after a new patch is launched, a survey sent to the player base about what they did and didn't like in the previous patch would help inform the dev team better than the current system they have?
  • Where do you think gearing from M+, PvP and Raid should be in 9.2 with the coming tier sets?
  • How do you prioritize the opportunities presented by timewalking?
  • Now that they are bringing back Mage Tower in some form for Legion Timewalking. I wonder if they could bring back the Challenge Modes for WoD and Mists Timewalking with some unique transmog?
  • Where do you think I should look for a new raid team that fits my unique schedule?
