Citizens of Azeroth: A World of Warcraft Podcast
38. Welcome to the Shadowlands

38. Welcome to the Shadowlands

November 24, 2020

Shadowlands is live so we break from our usual format to talk just about the latest World of Warcraft expansion. How did we feel about the pre-patch events? What can we expect heading into the new content? What will there be to do as our time in the Shadowlands begins? How are you picking a Covenant? We discuss all of these and more and welcome your questions and comments about the beginning of a new era of World of Warcraft for future episodes!

37. Looking at the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Leveling Experience

37. Looking at the Shadowlands Pre-Patch Leveling Experience

November 3, 2020

As we mentioned last week, there isn't a lot to do in Pre-Patch except level alts. So why do we have so many problems with how leveling is currently handled? Not that we'll have to worry about it for long, as Shadowlands has gotten its new release date and will be here soon (and not Blizzard Soon(TM)). We also get silly about lockboxes and discuss anniversary events, Metzen's new board game endeavor, and Blizzard going into overdrive for the rest of the year.

36. Shadowlands Pre-Patch Is Here - Now What?

36. Shadowlands Pre-Patch Is Here - Now What?

October 20, 2020

The pre-patch has dropped and your character has now been reduced to level 50. Now what? Although the pre-patch brings a revised leveling experience and some new abilities, it also highlights a problem with Warcraft right now - a lack of things to do. We talk about the latest developments in retail, classic, and beta World of Warcraft, as well as discussing the ramifications of a key phrase released in the Shadowlands survival-guide and whether Blizzard could let an expansion end with us losing. Be sure to check us out on Warcraft Radio (and throw a rating or review in).

35. Pre-Patch Is Coming But Shadowlands Is Delayed

35. Pre-Patch Is Coming But Shadowlands Is Delayed

October 6, 2020

We finally got a release date for Pre-Patch but with it came the news that the actual Shadowlands release is being pushed back. Rafe and Chris talk about that as well as Mike Morheim's new game company, Diablo changes, support classes, and multi-boxing. 

NOTE: Due to recording issues, the audio quality on this episode is not up to our usual expectations. We apologize for this and if we had time to re-record the episode, we would have.

34. Changing Mains for Shadowlands

34. Changing Mains for Shadowlands

September 22, 2020

This week we talk about motivations behind changing our mains for the new expansion. Shadowlands pre-patch can't be far off, evidenced by the huge Developer Update we got, but for now we have the last two of the Afterlives shorts to chat about. We also talk about computer specs for Warcraft, what lies in the future for Classic, and how you too can get an evil demon cat companion in the game!

33. We Have a Shadowlands Release Date!

September 8, 2020

We have a Shadowlands Relase Date! Hope you've put in for that time off the week before Halloween, because that's when the Shadowlands open. We also talk about the "Afterlives" animations we've seen so far, Garrosh getting unceremoniously censored, Thrall's role in the new Horde, what we're planning on having as a main in the new expansion, and more!

32. Epic In Game Events

32. Epic In Game Events

August 25, 2020

Rafe is exploring Shadowlands Beta, but it's hard to follow the narrative when you get "Epic In-Game Event!" instead of the actual event. Chris is digging further into Hearthstone and Diablo 3 events. And we debate whether Mak'goras have ever actually been presented as honorable challenges in the World of Warcraft.

31. Controversies and Injustice

31. Controversies and Injustice

August 11, 2020

The Gallywix RMT Controversy surprised a lot of people. Don't know that that means? Don't worry - we'll explain it. We also talk about Blizzard's tribute to Reckful, money issues in America (yes, really), the controversies surrounding the opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj on Classic, and WoW in a VR setting.

30. Shadowlands Enters Beta

30. Shadowlands Enters Beta

July 14, 2020

The big Shadowlands streaming presentation last week might have been disappointing - or it might have gotten you excited about World of Warcraft again. Either way, we break down the information revealed, including Shadowlands moving into beta testing this week! What do we think about the collector's edition (with the return of the art book)? What about gender swapping at the barber show? Listen on to hear our reactions to all of this and more!

BONUS: Have Not Seen This Warcraft Excerpt

BONUS: Have Not Seen This Warcraft Excerpt

July 7, 2020

It's our week off, but we wanted to take the opportunity for a little shameless self-promotion. Recently, Rafe's other podcast, Have Not Seen This, looked at the 2016 film adaptation Warcraft. You can hear a snippet of the conversation here as Rafe and guest Luke Kunka talk about how buff Gul'dan is and how none of the Mak'gora challenges seem to be played fair. If you like what you hear, you can find the full episode on your podcast players or by following this link. We'll be back for our regularly scheduled episode next week!
