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 June 2022 Patron Q&A!

Episode #526: June Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

This week we asked our Patrons "What are your thoughts on raid tuning, how accessible should different raid difficulties be?"

  • Jason and Spencer's answer to the question.
  • How can they make final bosses more interesting?
  • Do you think they are intentionally making it harder to complete tasks in the game so players have to be online playing the game more?
  • What are your feelings on raiding in season 4?
    • While I like the concept of how they plan to hand out gear, here we sit discussing how punishing these raids were, do we really want to go back in there?
  • Is mythic raiding too hard?
