Phase 2’s HK Meta, in Retail | Barrens Chat Episode 22

Well, phase 2 in Classic WoW hasn't been received as well as anybody expected. This is mostly due to the imbalance on many servers, and the tactics used by minority factions to gain the upper hand. For the Battle For Azeroth side of things, we discuss raider io and how you can improve your chances of getting into a group when there seems to be nobody online.

Diving back into Retail WoW? | Barrens Chat Episode 19

Sod dives deeper into retail World of Warcraft, giving BfA another chance in preparation for 8.3. We're both excited for the raid and the system changes. I apologize, Guck's audio seems a little off this week. Not too much has happened in classic WoW so we spend a good amount talking about retail for once.

Classic WoW Update & A Pitch for Retail | Barrens Chat Episode 18

Not much has changed in the world of Classic WoW, aside from plenty of unrest with our guild situation. This drives Sod and Guck to check back in on Battle for Azeroth and make a surprise pitch for people to get back into raiding on retail. Will 8.3 be good enough, is the absence of a second raid in Phase 2 going to be enough, or will nothing save BfA?

The End of Retail & The End-Game of Classic | Barrens Chat Episode 15

We start with a lot of discussion around Battle for Azeroth's War Campaign finale. Retail World of Warcraft's story is definitely interesting, but are the systems enough to keep players engaged? Of course we talk a lot about Classic WoW. We've been getting in Blackrock Depths, getting through the mid 50's, and getting lucky with epic drops!
