Horde for Life 153: Warcraft Santa

Warcraft Santa

 

No its not December yet we have proclaimed Tom Chilton as our Warcraft Santa!

Dustin gets a new phone, Kristine loses a cat and Rich calls Dustin… and then the entirety of the Alliance… scumbags (digging a hole Rich) Oh and HFL is now on Google Play!

Once the dust settles the crew actually talk a ton of Warcraft. Artifact leveling, world quests, rep, raiding (Ursoc one shot!) and some gameplay flaws that seem to work against those players who love playing alt characters.

The crew also touches on the question, is content coming too fast?

But one of our main discussions tonight is Tom Chilton leaving the Warcraft team, what that means for the current game and some serious speculation on what he will be doing now. Crazy theories abound and we would love for you to chime in!

Panda Hate

 

Storms be damned we recorded 152!

Yes it was a long time coming, but it has been a busy start to the fall so cut us some slack 🙂

Rich tries to explain away his excuses for not playing, Kristine is raiding again and Dustin had a child!

Once we finally get rolling, we learn in this episode that the entire HFL crew has emotions ranging from dislike to deep seeded hatred for the Panda as a playable character, who knew?

Lots going on in this episode, so give it a listen!

Horde for Life 151: Legion Launch… for some of us!

Episode 151

Legion Launch… for some of us!

This was a fun episode, mainly because Rich got carried for nearly the entire 2 hours. While we deftly and definitely went down many rabbit holes (apologies to both California and Oregon residents!) we did manage to cover a lot of ground with respect to what may very well go down as the best Warcraft expansion of all time. We also – as promised – fulfilled a listener request to do an MMO 6 pack segment with the magic developer wand.

Give it a listen and tell us what you think!

Horde for Life 150: Lock Tight Ogres!

Episode 150

Lock Tight Ogres

 

We were super excited to be joined by Brian Black aka Rho from the Realm Maintenance podcast and were not let down one bit.

This 2.5 hour opus tackled the good, bad and ugly that the Legion Invasion events have brought with it. Additional topics cover a range of issues from PvP to the upcoming Karazhan content and a large dose of Warcraft Legion Lore.

As a side note, this podcast was recording exactly one day before Blizzard’s Friday 8.19 hot fix (# 3) that appears to have finally mitigated a lot of the XP issues we were seeing with the invasions.

Episode 149

Transmog Six Pack Special

Tonight’s show was recorded just before the Legion Invasion event (which we will cover in great detail on episode 150) which is just as well because we are able to FINALLY complete our much belated Transmog Six Pack!

We have also included links to the very gear we discuss below

All this plus oddly enough some home improvement stories… and what do Skeletor and Mike Tyson have in common? hmmm, only on Horde for Life!

Valorous Aegis Greaves (plate) – White with light blue gems, from VoA in Wrath, my favorite for holy pally

Stormrage Leggings (Druid T2 from Ragnaros in MC)

Kilt of the Night Strider/Kilt of Living Growth/Wildheart Kilt/Feralheart Kilt

Horde for Life 148: Legion Pre-Patch Blues

Episode 148

Legion Pre-Patch Blues

Lots of good discussion on episode 148, so much so that we are not able to fit it all in. Apologies in advance for teasing and not delivering the transmog MMO six pack, but it will come fast and furious on episode 149.

That said we get to a lot tonight, starting with Dustin abusing the host… or maybe the host is trolling Dustin, one can never tell! When things finally get serious we settle down to share our angst for CRZ in capital cities, a move that Blizzard is finally backing off of.

But we spend most of the evening detailing all you want to know about the pre-patch, the good bad and ugly… hint, do not get too used to those artifact weapons as they may go the way of garrisons.

Additionally we praise the modding community as unheralded heroes even as Rich struggles with updates to over 70 mods, talk PvP and Dustin tells us why Pokemon GO is the greatest mobile game ever launched.

Be sure to listen to the outtakes at the end of show! Two and a half hours… are you not entertained!
