Episode 58 – “Raid Team Noah”


Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 58 titled Raid Team Noah!

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 Saturday, April 25th, 2015. And was released on Tuesday, April 28th, 2015.

On Today’s episode we quickly go over our weeks in video games, then we jump right into covering all of this weeks news inside the Blizzard Entertainment Universe covering Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and World of Warcraft news. Then we drop a basic campfire and  start our World of Warcraft discussion!

This week we correct ourselves about legendary rings, then we discuss the 675 ilvl cap for Followers, new features to an outdated UI, what Blizzard would have to do keep us around for 5 more years, and raid mechanics. Then we switch things up and move onto the StarCade! This week we cover a Blizzard Arcade Free to Play game called Sniperzzzzzzzzz! Then we jump into our Blizzard Entertainment discussions where we talk about Heroes of the Storm and what future Heroes we would like to see! Then we take a look at another amazing Diablo 3 Community Creation! Then we move onto the IceBox where we have two emails from YOU the  listeners!

1.) On last weeks episode, we had some big confusion about the Legendary rings Proccing buff over it being an on use item, and we correct ourselves after being called out!

2 .) With the Follower iLvl capped at 675, do you think blizzard is trying to reduce the 100% success rate missions to help diversify how you run your mission tables?

3.) Does World of Warcraft have the ability to really keep bringing new features to this now dated UI or has it reached its breaking point for innovation?

4.) For World of warcraft to go another 5 years what things do you as the player need from Blizzard to help keep your interests in both the game and the MMO Genre?

5.)  In light of recent Raids have the fights become overfilled with Mechanics making them more of a dance of random luck over finesse kills?
