Show review

I love the information to provide from week to week. The dual perspective is also nice as well, I am coming from a horrible hard core player, I max out at heroic raiding, and M+ at 10-13. I love the game in general, with the exception of pet battles. My option to improve your show would be to cut back on reviewing the same thing more then once. If your viewers missed it they can use the rewind button. Yes I know I can use the fast forward button, at the chance of missing something good. In the end I would love a 45 min pod cast.

Episode #365: December Patron Q&A!

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players! Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas sit down to talk with our Patrons about what's on their minds for the December Patron Q&A!

Episode #365: December Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

  • At what point did we get the itch to start creating our own WoW content and when did you feel like doing it?
  • What do we think about horrific visions so far? Do you think it’s going to inform Torgast and how they do that?
  • How much time do you spend researching the game and raids? And do you just pick up pointers through experience as you go or do you go out of your way to find particulars for the show?
  • So I have more of a discussion topic than a real question...... What are your thoughts on corrupted gear. I listen to several WoW podcasts, and in some of them, they feel the system is too complicated, and they will just purge off all corruption and just opt out of the system entirely. I will personally let some website decide what is the optimal corruption level for me.
  • Name one thing that is no longer available, which you would like back in the game OR one thing that you would introduce if you had the chance.
  • Visions is less than a month away. What would you say is the main thing we should be focusing on before it drops?
  • Since the decade is almost out, what has been your WoW high/low points this decade?
  • Which WoW title would you have in real life?
  • Do you use any particular add-ons specifically for M+?
  • do you have any rituals for the holiday around the game?

Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players! Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas sit down to talk with our Patrons about what's on their minds for the November Patron Q&A!

Episode #360: November Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

  • Are you guys playing Diablo this season?
  • What do you think of the new Guild Recruitment tool and what features would you like to see added?
  • After watching Ion at Blizzcon I just felt left wanting. I was very excited because it felt like blizz was saying “hey guys we listened and were making changes you wanted!” However I still wanted something new too. So it got me thinking and I can’t get the thought out of my head. The WoW team is all about a slow release of content throughout an expansion. Maybe the something new (class) we want is coming, but it’s coming in 9.1 or 9.2. What do you guys think of this, what class do you think it would be and why is it Venthyr Vampire like class?
  • What surprised you most about blizzcon announcements?
  • I was curious of how long and when you found out what your "thing" was in WoW. For example, I started playing in 2007, but didn't have a "thing" until 2009, when I saw this white drake mount (the 50 mount achievement) and I thought that I needed to have that! Since then I was obsessed with mounts and getting the next achievement.  So to sum up: What's your "thing"? And when did you discover that you wanted to play the game in a certain way because of it.
  • Hey fellas, with the changes to loot in M+ and the 15 box change, do you see an uptick in people getting in each week especially at the beginning. Also your thoughts on the changes?

Episode #354: October Patron Q&A!

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players! Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas sit down to talk with our Patrons about what's on their minds for the October Patron Q&A!

Episode #354: October Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

  • How are you guys feeling about returning to static gem slots ie wraith days. For me I really enjoyed using different gem combination to get the bonuses and knowing exactly what I want to gem. Nowadays I don't like the randomness of getting a gem slot.
  • For both hosts, what is your personal ranking of xpacs? Such as for me #1 is Cata as its when I really got into the game and then so on and so forth.
  • Starting with a softball one first. In these 8.3- times; what races would you guys like to see playable next? I'm a bit disappointed in mechagnomes myself, but absolutely fun with some new additions.
  • What's your take on professions in this xpack? I find them a bit underwhelming. To be fair, you can live quite comfortably without investing in them and I'd wish that was not the case. Do you disagree and think they have quite an impact and if not; what would you like to see change in 9.0 and beyond?
  • Damage meters, should they exist?
  • To piggy back a bit on anger’s question.... where would you guys like to see the titanforging system change become? I personally would like to see a wrath type system where you can earn a certain amount of tokens for things you run to upgrade and making crafting worth it again. What would you guys think of a system more like that?
  • What end game progression system would you like to see in the next expansion? It is pretty clear that there will be some type of system like the AP stuff in the last 2 expansions so I wanted to get your view and hopes for what they could do with that system. I for one hope they bring weapons back. I absolutely fell in love with the concept of Artifact Weapons. With how incredibly integral weapons are to most classes it was super nice knowing you didn't have to worry about getting that really annoying weapon drop. And not only working on increasing the power of them, I also loved how cool they looked and you could work on unlocking different appearances. That was super fun and cool to me! And every class and spec had their unique ones. OMG SO AWESOME!! Maybe they could do something different than the linear talent system they had. Maybe tweak it a bit where you don't unlock everything so you had to choose between some really epic talents. Also, maybe instead of Weapon Drops from Raid Bosses or Mythic Plus Dungeons they would drop appearances instead. I know this is just a pipe dream because they probably would get a lot of flack for going "back to an old system" but I think it would be just the coolest thing.
  • In the past it was quite common to have bosses in each tier with some sort of "healing gimmick", or something different that healers have to do strategy-wise. This can take the form of bosses like Dreamwalker, Avatar of Sethraliss, or Tsulong, where the fight ends when the boss is healed, not killed. Or something like Chimaeron, where as long as everyone was above a certain health threshold, anything extra healing-wise was "wasted". Or even Sinestra with managing dispels, or Behemoth where there are distinct healing "windows". What are your thoughts on fights like this? Should there be more of them? Less of them? Are there other cool things Blizzard could incorporate with healers and healer mechanics?
  • Jason, how do you think the possible removal of titanforging will affect a group like yours? It already seems hard to keep a group farming bosses they do not need much gear on. At least with titanforging there is always a possible upgrade on any boss......
  • Do you have statistics on where your listeners hear your content? How much trouble is it to upload to all the content delivery platforms?

Episode #350: September Patron Q&A!

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players! Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas sit down to talk with our Patrons about what's on their minds for the September Patron Q&A!

Episode #350: September Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

  • Do we think they are going to cut BFA short?
  • How do we get interviews at BlizzCon and can we choose who we are going to interview?
  • What do we think about guilds being opened up to Cross-Realm, also what do you think about raids being opened up sooner?
  • Since I assume we're either going to get WC3 or at least get a date at BlizzCon what is some advice for someone (me!) that never played it before?
  • I main a healer (currently resto shaman) but I’m deciding what to play next expansion. My guild often has tank troubles so what I would like to do is play a class where I can Main Heal and OS tank, I'm currently thinking of pally but what are your guys' suggestions for classes that can do this and why?
  • Buddy of mine and myself were arguing why blizzard released classic. My buddy thinks blizzard released classic to revive wow and basically keep it afloat in the event blizzard comes out with another failing expansion (in his opinion) he thinks they will also probably need to re-release a few fan favorite expansions to keep players coming back and subbing to and playing the game. I think he's totally wrong, i think they released it for the sole purpose that the community asked long enough and blizzard simply delivered. In my opinion, with or without classic people will sub and play the game if they want to, regardless if there is an earlier expansion like classic that they can also play if they get bored of WoW now. I am curious on your thoughts about that, and also curious a little bit of what you think blizzard will do in regards to rereleasing older expansions or patches and how do you think they'll approach that convo if and when more people start asking. (Obviously years later but just an idea)
  • I recently started a new account on a different region and I have noticed what a new player of the game actually needs to get through with their character to get going in the expansion. Stuff that a experienced players just take for granted today can probably cause headaches for a new player to the game. The need to get to friendly of each faction while leveling to get world quests unlocked isn’t communicated before you even start leveling. So if you have not quested in all zones you need to do questing even after reaching max level to unlock wqs. An experienced player knows that flying is a thing but it isn’t really communicated anywhere in game for new players. The difficulty to handle outdoor content with absolutely no gear is a daunting experience. Benthic is a thing but to even survive the outdoor content in Nazjatar to get the pearls is really hard to do with level up gear. What would you guys think blizzard should do in the future to make the experience more accessible for new players. Do we really need to have to go to 3rd party sites to figure out how the game works?
  • Would you rather: New classes OR new class specs? ie; there are "rumors/spoilers" about a new tinker class, but perhaps additional specializations for a few classes. like a RDPS DK, A Warlock Tank spec, or even a rogue healer). I Don't think it would be ideal to add a new spec to every class, but the ideology behind theory crafting it can be fun.
  • Spencer it is kind of hard for you to answer this as you play a druid who can do it all as a druid so Jason, if you could have one new specialization for your 15 year main, what would that be like?

Show review

I love the information to provide from week to week. The dual perspective is also nice as well, I am coming from a horrible hard core player, I max out at heroic raiding, and M+ at 10-13. I love the game in general, with the exception of pet battles. My option to improve your show would be to cut back on reviewing the same thing more then once. If your viewers missed it they can use the rewind button. Yes I know I can use the fast forward button, at the chance of missing something good. In the end I would love a 45 min pod cast.

the most informative WoW pod!
