Countdown To Classic

Jul 3, 2019

Did somebody call in about Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker?!?

Countdown To Classic is back again as we inch another week closer to launch day, and we've got more topical issues and game related chatter for you.

Callers from far and wide hit the show up to discuss the minutiae behind using Thunderfury, a pro-world buffs reply, and Twitch sensation Dr. Lupo stops by to talk about his history with WoW and give his thoughts on how well WoW Classic and streaming will mix.

Then we hear from a couple of European players who have concerns over the recent news from Blizzard about EU servers, and finally, vanilla dungeon designer John Staats is back again to discuss the making of Wailing Caverns.

Highlights Below:

  • Calling Countdown #1 - The Ins & Outs of Swinging Thunderfury w/ Zorn - 3:00
  • Calling Countdown #2 - Leave World Buffs Alone w/ Fahq - 25:15
