Countdown To Classic

Jul 10, 2019

Less than seven weeks to launch and there's more to talk about on the show than ever! Listen to Josh discuss a wide range of topics with the listeners, who continue to call in for a fun chat.

Today, Hunter extraordinaire Zeroed stops by to chat about all of the Hunter issues that have reared their ugly head in the beta, causing concern for everyone wanting to roll their beloved ranged class in Classic.  Vanilla dungeon designer John Staats stops by again for part one of an epic two part conversation about the making of Karazhan, which while not being playable in vanilla, was very much a part of the vanilla design process.

Next, we unite former nemeses in a call about vanilla raid history, as members of famed guilds Nihilum and Death & Taxes stop by to bury the hatchet and fondly reminisce about their feats back in the day.  After that, we go over some detailed theorycrafting about warriors, warlocks and priests amongst others, and then finish up speaking with the host of the fantastic podcast 'Convert To Raid', as Pat Krane stops by to talk about what it's been like coming back to Classic in the beta after so many years with retail.
