Casual fun is my speed - I'm leveling a demon hunter (non-hardcore) and I'm slowly pecking my way to 70 with the help of adventure mode and rifts. I did the story mode through Act 1 because its one of my favorite acts but the ability to do non-story stuff as a seasonal character has been great. If anything, I'm not exactly sure what you're supposed to do on a seasonal character at 70!

@MyNameIsIllegal Nah, never played a barb! I am rather terrible at melee characters unless they have some sort of spell effect like Crusaders. Ha!

I played a crusader in Season 1 and had way too much fun doing that. If you want a relatively hardy character, a crusader is honestly your best bet - they really pound for pound do a ton of damage and stay alive much longer than my main, which is a wizard. 


For season 2 I might finally try a demon hunter out.

@JanInCognito Is iTunes or other RSS podcast feeds not an option for you? That being said, they have gotten a Youtube channel.

@orangegoblin82 As someone who gets to see a lot more of the behind-the-scenes, I would say that the budgeting being considered is extremely conservative and meant for the long haul.

@Atieno @AlexZiebart If anything, I was happy that WI was one of the only sites that could or wanted to tackle some of the glaring issues with representation in WoW, despite the fact that the WoW public at large has no desire to tackle it. The issue is that whenever a site takes a swing at it, people lose their shit, even if the ire is aimed at Blizzard.


Elizabeth Harper's work regarding some of the sexism and issues going into WoD was really good and also I felt a good critical analysis of the situation, even as someone who quit over a lot of that stuff.

Definitely use an email if you want to donate to patreon. Facebook logins seem pretty hit or miss right now.

Also thank you to everyone who likes the phoenix!

Well, then it comes down to including a lady panda and everyone shouts, "But it -has- to be Chen!" 

 

Because most of their notable, recognizable protagonists in most of their stories are men. So it isn't really a trailer issue so much anymore. It was deliberate, I assumed that much, but deliberately putting in dudes and centering around men fighting had a purpose but it illuminates a much larger narrative problem.
