Ep IV.VII – The Book of Meloree

This week our guest is Meloree, formerly Mel of Edge (still Mel of Edge on twitter, but not really on twitter unless you’re cool enough to deserve an @mention from him. Maybe try sending Tim Horton’s gift cards to earn his favor.)

Mel, like Vik & Hi-Ya, has not been playing WoW in the traditional sense for well over a year, but is uniquely suited to discuss the other MMO’s he’s been playing and talk about how they stack up against the type of experience a veteran WoW raider may be looking for.

Topics Discussed:

  • Diablo 3 (The Cow Rifts Exist!)
  • Heroes of the Storm
  • Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn
  • Wildstar Beta (Warplots vid link)
  • Hearthstone
  • PAX East & Blizzcon 14
  • Meloree loves Mythic raiding (at least the concept of it)
  • Entry-Level Scotch (Don’t you dare put soda in a single-malt!)

What We’ve Been Playing Lately

Vik – The Stick of Truth, Fall of Cybertron, HotS
Logan – Go Go Nippon, Portal 2: Thinking with Time Machine
Hi-Ya – Diablo 3, mostly just piling up game backlog for fun

What’s In Your Cup

Meloree – Glenrothes 1985
Logan – Sonoran Brewing Company White Chocolate
Hi-Ya – ALL THE CRANRASBERRY (with Bombay Sapphire Gin)
Viktory – New Belgium Summer Hellas Lager

This week our guest was Theck from Maintankadin and Sacred Duty. We follow up our previous episode about Warlords of Draenor alpha changes with a meta discussion about the current state of the game and forward-looking commentary. But first, we jump into an unexpected discussion about Secret World and whether it’s the game or us as the players that emphasize the leveling style over lack of end-game because it’s a secondary MMO. (Then Vik goes off the rails asking why it’s an MMO instead of seemless co-op like Borderlands 2 or Saints Row.)

What’s In Our Cup

Theck – Harrisburg Mountain Ale
Logan – SoCo & Cream Soda
Vik – New Belgium Summer Hellas lager
Hi-Ya – The Blood of Noobs aka Calipco and raw beer-batter

What we’ve been playing

Theck – Beyond Two Souls, Diablo 3, totally not BioShock Infinite, Secret World
Logan – WoW (just for raiding), Heroes of the Storm Alpha
Vik – Heroes Alpha
Hi-Ya – LoL, but just once a day for boosted IP, because stock-piling IP is what cool kids do

WoW Meta-Discussion

  • Content Pacing
    • Is the current pace of content enough to keep you interested until the next release?
    • What percent of your current/peak playing time will you maintain?
    • Would it be better to release partial tiers periodically instead of a massive final tier then nothing for a year?
      • From a Player Perspective
      • From an Organizational Perspective
    • Does the content gap help Blizzard’s non-WoW properties?
  • State of Raiding:
    • 59% of Guilds who’ve raided SoO have killed Garrosh on Normal
    • 43% have taken down 1 heroic boss
    • < 10% have gotten to the last three bosses
    • Does raiding still matter to WoW, or is the illusion of raiding good enough?
  • Is Mythic Raiding the right move, or is it Too Late?
  • Warlords Alpha Changes
    • Are class changes they’ve announced so far necessary changes, are they quality of life improvements, or are they changes just for the sake of making changes to create buzz?
    • Would you be more or less inclined to buy WoD if there were no proposed class or race changes?

WoW Content Release Dates*

  • Dec 8 2009 Ice Crown patch
  • Jun 22 2010 Ruby Danctum patch
  • Dec 7 2010 Cata release (1 year since ice crown)
  • Nov 29 2011 Dragon Soul patch
  • Sep 25 2012 Pandaria release (10 months since dragon soul)
  • Sep 10 2013 Siege patch

HotSCast Whos Your Hero This week we originally attempted to record immediately after Reaper of Souls launched*.  As you may have guessed, that didn’t work out so well.  Instead, we roped in a great guest in Rilandune (HotSCast & Heroically Random) and packed in even more show for you. Our topics include:

  • Heroes of the Storm compared to LoL
  • DoTA2 documentary – Free2Play
  • Diablo 3 (now that we’ve actually played in Loot 2.0)

* to be fair, when we originally scheduled, we thought only 1/4 of us would be getting RoS at launch.

Listen as Logan takes you through a pee and poop filled strategy guide for Jin’rokh the Breaker.

Jin’rokh the Breaker is the first boss raiders are likely to encounter in the 5.2 “Thunder King” raid.

Mostly a tank-and-spank fight, killing Jin’rokh relies on the raid team’s ability to:

  • not stack on the tank
  • do stack in the good puddle
  • kite the orb away from the good puddle
  • stack in the center of the room for Lightning Storm
  • not stack back in the dirty water

For more about Jin’rokh the Breaker’s abilities and what to be prepared for, see wowpedia.

 

————

BTW: for those of you who are inclined to know the stories behind the loot pinatas, you may remember Jin’rokh as a helpful NPC in the original ZG raid.  Oh how times have changed.  Kids, this is what happens when you abuse steroids and performance-enhancing lightning powers.

Vik & Ray in the Morning – The Big Game

Folks, you’re in for another treat this week.

The newest episode of “Vik & Ray in the Morning” is also being syndicated here on the LeetSauced feed while those guys get their site resolved and ready to launch.

Listen in as these two knuckleheads discuss:
– how lame it is that you have to refer to the Super Bowl as “the big game”,
– fun prop bets,
– and Ray discusses that time we thought he was watching Michael Jackson perform, but it was really Brian Boitano.

Let Vik & Ray know what you think of the show, any topics you’d like to hear them cover, and anything else you feel like telling them.  Look for their site: www.vikandray.com to be launching soon.
