Episode #38 – WoW Econ 101 (Part One) With Partypooper – Making & Growing Your Fortune In WoW


It’s time for another interview as Josh has real life get in the way a little with the planned scheduling for the week.

But that just means that he gets to bring you this epic interview just a little bit sooner, as he sits down with listener of the show, Partypooper, to discuss absolutely everything and anything you should ever want to know about making money in vanilla World of Warcraft.

Today is simply part one (!) of the economy chats to end all economy chats as Partypooper and Josh wound up covering almost 3 hours worth of material for you all.  This has been split in two so you can all let it sink in over time as this chat is not for the feint of heart! So get out your abacus and your monocle and listen in to one of Josh’s favourite interviews to date.

Part Two to come next week!

Another week, another Countdown!

Ring in your Monday with this fantastic in depth interview with Druid enthusiast and theorycrafter, Taladril, who stops by to chat with Josh about the general state of Druids in vanilla.

We cover whether or not Feral is ‘broken’ or if it comes down to player skill, if Balance can be salvaged in anyway and also why anyone would roll Resto Druid over Holy Priest.

After that, Josh takes a call from listener Swiftdeus, who chats Blizzcon 2018 predictions and what it could mean for Classic WoW, as well a few Hunter points.
