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 December 2021 Patron Q&A!

Episode #494: December Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

  • What is the advantage of even adding a second legendary versus just improving the baseline Covenant abilities?
  • If the WoW devs gifted you each with the ability to create your own expansion with full creative control, what would it be? I'm talking story, setting, NPC's focused on, systems, raids, dungeons, music, the whole shebang. What is your dream dot zero scenario?
  • At what age will Jason's twins start playing wow? My kids started around kindergarten/first grade, but when they learned to read I made a rule that they had to read the quest text. What special rules will Jason make for his kidlets? How long before they will be raid ready?
  • Question for the show, what is your favorite zone that wasn't in vanilla?
  • Are looking forward to the new tier sets and would you sport them?
