Segment 1: Hot Topic
Thoughts about the current state of the game a couple months into BFA. What are the hits, what are the misses for each of us?

Militus –
Hits. Zone design, Raids.
Misses: Expeditions, Warfronts, class design, Azerite armor, and necklace

Tess –
Hits: Warfronts are fun. The stories they’ve given us are great.
Misses: Island Expeditions. I don’t like them. Only done one and it was enough. Crafting.

Boom:
Hits:
Warfronts – I like them, I just wish they were more often.
Island Expeditions – I really enjoy these.
Raiding – It has been fun. Encounters are great.

Misses:
Rep Grind:
I woke up and decided I will not go after pathfinder for this expansion. I don’t need it. I don’t want to level any alts and the stuff is so close together I don’t know that flying is actually worth the rep grind. If I get it great, if not, I don’t care. I am no longer grinding rep, it just isn’t very important to me any longer.

Dungeons:
Nick made it to iLVL 335 without running a single dungeon. So he is basically going from leveling to raiding. LFG dungeons are no longer a thing, and I think it is on purpose. I feel like Blizzard thinks LFG was a mistake and I remember them mentioning something along those lines a while back. Not LFG as a tool, but the fact it took away the social aspect of the game where you needed to get to know somebody genuinely in order to play. But to be honest it is a feature that I really miss and I want to have LFG dungeons matter, I want reasons to run them and I want to enjoy that content again away from a mythic setting. I don’t like what “timed” mythics have done to the game. I like challenge, but the timer really ruins the event.

Segment 2: Moments of Zen
Tess – WB Drop, again, ha! Exalted on Proudmore, Turtles, and 7th so far. Will get the rest within the week.

Militus – The exalted… with everything. 🙂 My moment in a warfront. Mila and a frost mage is all you need baby. Parsed in 98th percentile on Mother Heroic in DPS! 🙂

Boom – Raid 8/8. Pretty cool. My son 115 and climbing. Can’t wait to raid and stuff with him. Still have not run a dungeon in a long time. G’huun downed!!! Yay!!!

I played so much Destiny 2 this week. At one point I was screaming at my computer yelling “hell ya!” because I was having so much fun. I ordered the legendary collection from Amazon for $39 which will give me all of the content that I have missed. So I am thinking I will be very active in that game for a little bit. DESTINY!

Segment 4: News
Don’t pack heat at Blizzcon (maybe I should not joke about this?) Gun violence. 🙁

Help for your alts is coming in 8.1
As announced during the latest Q&A, Blizzard has added new scouting maps to the game, with the objective to open all flight paths for alts or secondary characters that haven’t leveled questing on the Battle for Azeroth zones. There are two separate items: 7th Legion Scouting Mapand Honorbound Scouting Map.

The Great Diablo Letdown. Not ready to spill the beans about what new Diablo title is coming out. This is like having the ground hog come out and still seeing its shadow. What are they actually going to show at Blizzcon? WoW – Classic, Diablo – Maybe just the switch, Hearthstone – more cards? Overwatch – New character or map? Heroes of the Storm – New character or map? That is about it that I can think of. The community is pissed and I saw many a post asking for their virtual ticket money back. It seems like fans feel betrayed.

Be nice or they might stop telling us things. After the fallout from the last Q&A session I don’t blame wow if they never want to talk to the community again.
