Episode #62 – Classic As An eSport + PvP Tips With OhhGee + Talisman Of Binding Shard


Countdown To Classic kicks off another the new week with a jam packed episode!

Listen in as Josh speaks with avid PvP and budding eSports caster, OhhGee, on two equally epic topics.  Firstly, OhhGee breaks down the possibility for WoW Classic to succeed as an eSport, then we go into the state of PvP in vanilla WoW, as well as battleground breakdowns, weapons and items to look out for and general PvP tips and tricks.

After that, it’s time for a listener call touching on topics such as the one off legendary item, Talisman of Binding Shard, as well as Classic desires and playing as an older gamer.

Highlights Below:

  • Classic WoW as an eSport – 3:30
  • Everything PvP + BG’s – 54:25
  • Calling Countdown – 1:55:35
  • Shout Outs – 2:20:50

  1. Wow (pun intended)! I learned SO MUCH from this podcast, thank you Josh, for inviting OhGee, and thank you OhGee for talking about all this.

    I just had one thing to point out – you mentioned that backpedaling is bad, never do it, and even unbind the key because of how slow it is and how much better it is to strafe, but I do have to say that I HAVE seen people use the slowness of backpedaling to their advantage – for example in Warsong Gulch, I’ve seen druid flag carriers go up to the little roof just above the tunnel entrance and drop into a hidden area inside the roof that puts them out of line of sight for most players and also makes whoever is chasing them miscalculate and drop from the roof, because the only way you can drop into that area is by going slow, and aside from toggling the “walk” key, backpedaling is a more efficient way to do this. Just wanted to point that out 🙂
