Round Table Fodder

3.3 in all its Glory
Overall thoughts?
Any sore points?

Class/spec changes. Any clear winners/losers at this point?

Faster Rep gains
Earning rep where it had stopped before (Silver Covenant, Alliance Vanguard, etc)
BoA Head/Shoulder enchants
X-faction mailing of BoA items

Weekly Raid
– How has it been to get the groups?
– 5 EoF and 5 EoT instead of 10 EoF
LFR
Dungeon Finder
– X-battlegroup PUGS (has the asshat quotient increased or were PUGS always this full of asshattery?)
– Need before greed
– Disenchant option

Frozen Halls
– How are you finding the new 5-mans?
– Battered Hilt.. any thoughts?

Are there any changes that caught you by surprise? Thing that you weren’t aware were changing.

2009 Retrospective – The year of Wrath
Was Wrath a success in your eyes as a player?
What were its weaknesses?
What lessons do you hope Blizz learns from Wrath for Cataclysm?

***SPOILER AND SPECULATION ALERT***
Arthas speculation:
– The 3.3 trailer and dialog in the Frozen Halls implies that there is a shred of (the good) Arthas left in the Lich King and that is that shred that is holding back the armies of the Scourge.
– There is also an implication that someone must take up the mantle of the Lich King when he falls or the Scourge will attack.
– Who do you think it will be.. or hope it will be?

2010 Looking Ahead – Cataclysm
What feature listed for Cataclysm has you most excited?
Will you be leveling one of the new races? new race/class combo?

Next YEAR…

Our next show will be Thursday January 7, 2010. We’ll be speaking with Ringo and Beli from Flinthammer Hall. Have a very merry holiday season and a happy new year.
