Great podcast for some, not so for others.

The show just isn’t for me anymore. Pat is fantastic but Thyst isn’t my cup of tea. To be fair, she’s a lot more tolerable than she was a year ago when she was trying to mount Pat on air, but with the addition of the incredibly unfunny Stats, it’s time to move on. I’m sure he’s a nice enough guy, but not for me. I miss the old cohosts, but it’s understandable that they had to move on, now it’s my turn. Thanks for the years of entertainment, Pat. Best wishes in the future.

This week Tattva joins the crew for WoW talk and more!

Not only is there a bunch of new stuff in the latest build of the Legion alpha like dungeons and hunter pets, there’s also more information on how legendaries will work (or more importantly NOT work) in the next expansion. Will these changes help make the raiding race more fair?

Other big news that just dropped is about how mounts effect the leveling experience. In the next expansion you will not be able to rely on your Water Strider mount to help you stay above the fray, as they will only work in previous content. More inside.

Happy Pilgrims Bounty!  This week: Pat Krane, Koltrane and Dairies dig a little deeper into some of the new features revealed at Blizzcon in a very fun show with a couple of classic CtR bits just in time for Turkey Day.

More information on garrisons was revealed through the interview, including why they weren’t implemented for guilds.  But what does the CtR crew want and expect from such a feature?

Plus, more on armor changes from Ghostcrawler, speed kills now on WoWProgress.com, patch 5.4.2 and you, and we get to a ton of viewer questions. Plus, Dairies moves west, Pat gets shushed, and Koltrane loves your brains.

We’ve got a glimpse into how
flying will be rolled out for Legion, so let the salt start…
flying! Blizzard released Part One of the achievements needed to
take to the skies of The Broken Isles, and they include completing
all story quests and exploring every part of the new continent. Are
there concerns amongst the players, and how have the developers
responded?

Overwatch open beta starts this

the insight from both new and veteran players to see how this game
is shaping up before the official release on May 24th!

Heroes of the Storm will allow
coaches in comms for the Summer Championship. How will this change
the game, and is this the right timing for a move like
this?

Plus, Diablo Season 6, a DARGON
