Episode 40 – Epic Invasion

Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 40 entitled Epic Invasion!

We are a your Blizzard Entertainment and Steam Free to Play discussion podcast. Each week we discuss anything that falls in between or outside those two glaciers. From talking about the games you love, the worlds you live in, AND maybe even a few you haven’t even heard of yet. Join Kilroy and Epicinsanity each week as we sit down and discuss the topics no one else is talking about as we bring you new points of view in a not so standard podcast format.

The show was recorded on Monday, December 1st, 2014. And was released on Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014.

On Today’s episode Epicinsanity is alone, but have no fear, Kilroy will be back after this week. He’s just in Europe right now for his Anniversary. So this week Epicinsanity is just going to break down the upcoming information you need for this weeks Raid releases, World Bosses, and more in the Warcraft segment. Then he moves onto talking about the Starcraft Developer Blog and discusses unit changes. Even though its the holiday time of year, its time to summon our inner demons and talk about some Diablo PTR. Then Epic moves on to talk briefly about the upcoming Hearthstone Expansion Goblins vs Gnomes and this months card back theme. Then he covers the upcoming holiday skins for Heroes of the Storm, and answers some questions about Overwatch.  So sit back, relax and enjoy Episode 40 of the Frozen Nerdz Podcast.

Seal of Tempered Fate

Seal of Tempered Fates are the new bonus roll for this raid tier. There are a few ways you can get  your weekly cap of 3. If you have a level 3 Dwarven Bunker (A) / War Mill (H) you will get 1 free Seal each week. Also there are  two Follower missions that may grant you one Seal.
The main way to obtain these will be via the following weekly quests. You can mix and match between the four types. However, the more you buy into the same type each week, the more it will cost you.

Gold 500 1000 2000
Apexis Crystals 1000 × 2000 × 4000 ×
Garrison Resources 300 × 600 × 1200 ×

Starcraft

Legacy of the Void: Multiplayer Development Update – November 19, 2014

Unit Changes

A few thoughts on some points we are seeing discussed on specific unit changes.

  • The HERC overlap with the Hellbat (and somewhat with charge upgraded Zealots) is something we’re aware of and would like to address.
  • Interceptors are not free. Their cost still remains the same
  • We’re also looking at changes on many other things including:
    • Various abilities we aren’t happy with
    • Exploring new unit ideas on both Protoss and Terran
    • Exploring ways to make the upgrade process more interesting and dynamic
    • Exploring ways to reduce micro in the game that can’t really be seen vs. increasing micro that players can show off.
