Episode #110 – The Making of Scholomance, Melee Leeway + Layering Commentary, AV in the Beta, & Stress Test Races


With the beta now being 6 weeks old, those who have been fortunate enough to spend time with it have begun to notice a few things which warrant a conversation about their implementation in WoW Classic.  Today, the listeners touch on some of those points.

We first hear all about melee leeway and get some further commentary on the layering examples that we’ve seen pop up thus far.  This is followed by a correction from an IT expert on the technical side of layering as touched on in earlier episodes.

From there, we hear all about how the AV weekend went, and then about a couple of server firsts in the third stress test from a pair of speed runners.

And, finally, we hear once again from vanilla WoW dungeon designer John Staats, all about the making of Scholomance.
