Countdown To Classic

Jun 19, 2019

What do fire lords and Keanu Reeves have in common? They’re both hot AF and they’re both talked about in this week’s Countdown To Classic podcast!
Another week, another instance history lesson with vanilla dungeon designer John Staats who answers questions from the listeners about that first beloved raid, Molten Core.
Then, the show talks in depth about the games that will be fighting for your love and attention while Classic is up and running, as we break down all of the big announcements from E3 (Spoiler Alerts for FFVII & FFVIII).
After that, we talk world buffs and more stream sniping in a case in reply from last week's episode.
