Episode #109 – The Making of Molten Core, The Games Battling Classic For Your Attention: An E3 Breakdown, World Buffs, & Stream Sniping Part Two


What do fire lords and Keanu Reeves have in common? They’re both hot AF and they’re both talked about in this week’s Countdown To Classic podcast!

Another week, another instance history lesson with vanilla dungeon designer John Staats who answers questions from Josh and the listeners about that first beloved raid, Molten Core.

Then, the show talks in depth about the games that will be fighting for your love and attention while Classic is up and running, as we break down all of the big announcements from E3 (Spoiler Alerts for FFVII & FFVIII).

After that, we finish up with world buffs and more stream sniping in a case in reply to last week’s episode.

  1. If you broadcast your location in a PVP game it’s your own fault when you get killed. There was no streaming back in vanilla, why should we make special rules to protect streamers in classic? Either make special streamer servers, or let streamers suffer the consequences for their choice to broadcast their character’s sensitive information (Their location). They certainly broadcast other players’ locations without their consent by showing their characters on stream to hundreds or even thousands of people.
