17. WoW Expansions in Review (Part II)

February 25, 2020

We continue our look at the World of Warcraft expansions of the past: Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria. Like last week, we share memories, what we liked, and maybe what we didn't like so much. You'll also hear us chime in on class balance and horrific vision changes that are going live today(!), exploring Diablo and Overwatch in animated form, and why we do or do not have interest in the upcoming Shadowlands beta.

16. WoW Expansions in Review (Part I)

February 18, 2020

It's hard to believe there have already been seven expansions for World of Warcraft, with an eighth, Shadowlands, on the horizon (possibly the far, far horizon). This week we begin a look back at the expansions of the past - the stories, the reputations, the dungeons, the raids, etc. We share memories, what we liked, and maybe what we didn't like so much. Before we get to that, however, we have our regular follow-ups (including our first listener mail) and news (including Ion Hazzikostas chiming in on some things we've talked about recently).

February 11, 2020

There was a lot of news to talk about this week, from the Race to World's First victory by Limit, and some of the entertaining (although possibly exploitative) steps along the way, to announced corruption changes, a Shadowlands pre-cursor novel announcement, and Blizzard's response to the Warcraft III Reforged issues. We also answer a few questions about running M+ keys and talk about our personal progression through Horrific Visions before diving into our bank vaults and void storage to discuss just how much we have collected, and still hoard, throughout our adventures in Azeroth!

14. Top 10 BFA Dungeon Bosses

14. Top 10 BFA Dungeon Bosses

February 4, 2020

We're asking a lot of questions this week: Does N'Zoth really die at the end of Battle for Azeroth? What effect will the "hero ban" have on Overwatch League Season 3? What are we as viewers getting out of Blizzard's move to YouTube for e-sports? And who is the best dungeon boss of BFA? We also discuss the troubled release of Warcraft III reforged and the latest (at the time we recorded) in the Race to World's First for Ny'alotha!

A quick note: At the time we recorded this episode, Blizzard had not responded to the Warcraft III reforged issues. At the time of release, they had issued a statement, which you can be sure we'll talk about on our next episode!

13. Raiding the Dog Boss, the Titan Boss, and Wrathion

January 28, 2020

This week we get into a little lore discussion, answering a question raised back in episode one: what is at the core of planets in the Warcraft Universe. We talk a bit about the first week of raiding, the latest experiences in the assaults of Uldum and the Vale, what the new Mythic+ is like, and Blizzard moving from Twitch to YouTube for their esports broadcasts.

Visions of N'zoth has been out for a week - so what do we think of it and how far have we progressed? What is Alora's fixation with Mentos? Also: Hearthstone and the vilification of Activision, perceptions of pay to play vs. pay to win, Squeakers the Lunar Festival rat, and more!

It's Patch Day! Stuck at work or school while the patch is downloading? Stuck staring at your screen during the six-hour server downtime? What better way to pass the downtime than to listen as we go over the major elements of Patch 8.3, Visions of N'Zoth, like the starting questline for 8.3, Horrific Visions, and the Black Empire Invasions. We're in the endgame (of BFA) now!

January 7, 2020

World of Warcraft patch 8.3, Vision's of N'Zoth, is only a week away and we're going to share some things you can be working on over the next week to prepare for patch day. From grinding rep and gold to collecting materials (hopefully you're doing some of these things already) to making sure you've done any necessary quests, we highlight things you should do to be ready to move forward when the battle against the Old Gods begins.

9. A World of Warcraft Decade in Review

9. A World of Warcraft Decade in Review

December 31, 2019

It's the end of the decade and all the cool kids are doing retrospectives, so we figured we'd try our hand at looking at how the past ten years have treated World of Warcraft. We look at highs, lows, and somehow come to the conclusion that Warlords of Draenor wasn't as bad as everyone seems to think it was. We also talk about a few news stories surrounding patch 8.3, and Rafe rants about the Party Finder system. Happy New Year!

Winter Veil 2019 - Willow (Have Not Seen This)

Winter Veil 2019 - Willow (Have Not Seen This)

December 24, 2019

Merry Christmas from all three of us at Citizens of Azeroth. It's Christmas week and we're spending the time with our family, friends, and loved ones, but wanted to make sure we had something out this week, so we're releasing an episode of Rafe's movie podcast Have Not Seen This that actually serves as a sort of origin for this podcast. In this episode, Alora made her podcasting debut to discuss the 1988 movie Willow. She has some great insights into the movie, including a great "leveling up" theory, and of course, as WoW players, we do bring the movie back to the game several times. If you like what you hear, subscribe to that podcast as well.

We'll see you next week for a return to Azeroth and we all hope you have the happiest of holidays!
