On this episode of The Instance, new ITV is up, Flex Raiding is rad, Blizzard kills auction houses and people seem believe that it was the right move, brewfest is still a thing so grab your steins and enjoy the beer, SoO race to world first, judge stops the Activision deal, world of tweets, calls, emails, and a great timeless Isle guide!

Professional address changer, Scott Johnson, and MLG Hearthstone superstar, Dills, have graced us with their internet personas once more.

Scott and Dills are here for our listening pleasure. Turpster, however, may have engaged with you last week but now he is actually engaged, I’m told to real-life human being. Ladies of the internet, I’m very sorry for your loss. What’s the real problem with buying characters in a game like this? What if the Horde gets a council instead of a Warchief? Horde side?

On this episode of The Instance, Hearthstone continues to be pretty awesome, Reaper of Souls seems alright to us, the WoW TCG is coming to an end, a word on Connected Realms and Faction Balance, some insight from blizzard on how things are going on the backend, the EU need not wait much longer for their Hearthstone beta access, World of Tweets, WoW Challenger challenges challenge modes, and more!

The Instance #338: Got To Know When To Fold Em

Instance-338 copy

On this episode of The Instance, we have TWO great interviews on the show, first with Chris Metzen, Doug Gregory, and Laurel Austin about the fantastic Burdens of Shaohao video series, then Turpster sits down with Tom Chilton and Cory Stockon in Germany’s GamesCom for a nice talk about the state and future of WoW, and then Dills and Scott load up on the Hearthstone impressions in the first week of beta. We smatter in your calls and questions as well, making this one of the most epic shows we’ve done! Enjoy!

Scott and Dills not only speak with WoW developers but even more so with our beloved community. And your questions will help us go twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom. I don’t know what that means either. Is it worth leveling slowly just so you can see all of the zones? Is the Dark Below really a hoax? And finally, why is it that people come back to WoW?

Also, we giving away more free stuff! Go here to enter.

On this episode of The Instance, 5.4 hits with a trailer like none before it, BattleNet 1.0 is in the hands of the people and we have some thoughts, Reaper of Souls and The Dark Below are names to remember, the deal struck between Vyrian and Jaina, when you out-level a zone, guild leaders have a new training tool, you will be happy to be Burdened, we give away a comic book collection, and loads more!

Our trifecta of podcastedness has returned with a vengeance to answer your questions for the public sphere. What does one do when you out-level a zone? Should guild leaders use LFR to train their fellow raiders? And finally, has Blizzard missed the boat with Blizzard All-Stars in the wake of the recent International Dota 2 tournament?

The Instance #335: Alchemists Anonymous

1381246-the_alchemist_marcel_lorange

On this episode of The Instance, we get an update about where Titan is headed and what that could mean for subscription-based games, some investor call numbers that are interesting and conjures up images of Bobby Kotick swimming in seas of cash Scrooge McDuck style, Warcraft movie details emerge around what the plot could be, the Forge is now the Arena (confusing, I know), PTR videos show the in game store, proving the proving grounds (again), why is 25 supposed to be epic, the song you remember most in WoW, and loads more!

Much like the 900 numbers that Scott calls on The Morning Stream, we’ve got answers. They may not be to the questions you’ve asked but whatever, psychics! Is it hard to come back to WoW? What you bought versus what you earned? What’s in a price point, really? Aren’t we all just price points waiting to happen? In the end, Blizzard has our money.
