Overview of the Show:
Ever listen to a podcast and wish they talked about what YOU wanted to hear about? Well now is your chance! Each and every week I’m going to sit down and do just that. With Season Two of the Epic Questions podcast, I take YOUR Blizzard Entertainment game questions and bring a different perspective to each and every one of them. Here at the Epic Questions Podcast, no question goes unanswered, and no listener goes unheard.
Asking Questions just got a little more Epic.
What’s Different With Season Two:
Season 2 of Epic Questions is going to be a little more discussion focused. Previously on the show, we answered every questions we received. As much as we love questions, it became hard answering the same questions we had just answered a few weeks prior, or just last week. So you control the show, and how often it is produced. A new Episode will be recorded as soon as we receive 5-10 solid questions to answer on the show. Questions will be reviewed by the hosts then hand selected for the next Episode.
Previously the show was only answered World of Warcraft based questions. But this time around, we are going to deep dive into the whole Blizzard Universe. But have no fear, the episodes will be split into two different categories: World of Warcraft Only, & Blizzard Entertainment. This will make it so you folks that only want to hear Warcraft discussion don’t have to skip through episodes to find the information you want to hear.
From time to time, the show will invite special guests to help with some or all questions on different topics, so if you have anyone you want to hear from, let us know!
Welcome to the Epic Answers portion of the show! This is the part of the show where I take questions submitted by members of the Warcraft Community for the Legion Q&A and give a quick recap to each and every answer given by Blizzard.
Question: Any plans to make Balance of Power skins account wide? Can we expect to see further alt catch-up mechanisms?
Question: No hidden shadow appearance after 30 Il’gynoth kills – when is bad luck protection coming?
Question: Were 7.1.5 secondary weight changes successful?
Question: What is the reason behind making second trait on relics another layer of RNG?
Question: Any chance we can see more relic drops/options? Currently choosing by ilvl, would be nice to choose by trait.
Question: How come legendary items don’t change effects with the specialization, just like Tier sets?
Question: Any plans for reducing the large barrier to spec-swapping presented by Legendaries? Having multiple Legendaries for a single slot is another mechanic that makes it difficult to play multiple specs.
Question: Any plans on buffing underperforming legendaries? Enhancement bracers for example do literally nothing right now.
Question: Plans to fix unlucky players with legendaries being benched with raids?
Question: What are plans for craftable legendaries? Do you think there will be more than the 4 in 7.2?
Question: Why do developers insist on making AP a long term system when it has so much effect on the game?
Question: Wouldn’t it be better to make AP class wide? Why must I gather all AP from the beginning for every spec’s weapon and stay far behind according to other players?
Question: What will happen with Suramar AP rewards if 7.0 AP items are unusable?
Question: Any plans to extend Artifact knowledge catch up in 7.2 to follow same trend as compendiums in 7.1.5?
Question: Tier 20 Set bonuses seem lackluster, why?
Question: Since there are now 6 pieces for each tier set, are players expected to wear 2pc vs 4 pc combinations in 7.2?
Question: Do you intend to release better Tank Trinkets?
Question: What is the design idea behind the new group buffing traits?
Question: Mythic raiders seem to be burning out faster than ever due to the grind, any plans to address that?
Question: Some WQ do not feel worth it – eg gold rewards. Have you considered different rewards – eg one that has a WF version of the item?
And to wrap up the show, Epicinsanity gives a personal response to the Q&A.
