The Instance #353: Crazy Chen

cgc4u

On this episode of The Instance, why would anyone create a fresh alt before WoD, smart players avoid Trojans, Blizzard wants to call you back, chinese WoW crime group gets some hard time, weapon skills have overstayed their welcome, where’s the WoW / HS integration, subclasses in the game, Diablo themed Hearthstone, and more!

Scott and Dills are gracing the air waves and ear holes this week, Turpster has recently come under the impression that a “Yogscast” was an actual creature native to amazonian rain forest and has not been heard from since. You have questions, we have convincing enough answers for you to believe it. How the heck to start in on PvP nowadays? And, why hasn’t Hearthstone been integrated into Warcraft yet? All of this and more are forthcoming!

The Instance #351: Spies Like Us

SpiesLikeUs-Still4

On this episode of The Instance, SoO has bad trash, you may have been rolling in a dungeon with a TSA agent, get your shopping down now in the game, get your pet back fast, Hearthstone gets a big patch, why some can’t get through that damned portal yet, why no new classes, Garrisons as Zones, and more!

The intrepid trio has returned with a vengeance, I’m sure it has something to do throwing Turpster’s brother out of window. This whole podcasting thing is just a clever distraction to pull off the greatest heist ever. And in that vein, we are here to answer all of your questions having to do with… WoW? Is that it? Should people get achievements for playing many multiples of one class? And, can you get Hearthstone bucks? All of this *dun* *dun* *DUN*, and more.

The Instance #350: The Legend of NethroSunder

greg

On this episode of The Instance, Raiding Prideful Shas, wow devs are clearly Zelda fans, we have a cast for the movie and there are some surprises in there, we get down deep into the whole GregGate, group finder in 6.0 makes sense, mail stuff to people no matter what realm they’re on, supporting alts, more classes want Green Fire, your calls, funny Garrosh movies, and more!

There are a good many happenings in the world of Blizzard and our crew gets into them all. In a remarkable turn of events we decided to have all three hosts appear for this episode. And, much like a sighting of the Bigfoot, no one notable will believe you no matter how much swear they saw it. Going past all of the Worgen and Goblin nonsense? What has been taken from us that we miss? If we have workers in garrisons, won’t that destroy the WoW economy? And, bare with me, what does our Instance team do outside of the game?

Instance Mugs On Sale Now!

I don’t want to have coffee in the morning, I’ve got to have coffee in morning. The receptacle of said coffee is important and the official Instance Mugs are here to receive it… and Christmas is just around the corner, just saying. Having bought the Morning Stream Mug myself I can certainly speak to it’s quality, and this one certainly on my wish list for the holidays.

WoW Streamer Detained by Police, On Camera

When someone gets detained by the police then you know the prank has gone too far. During what was a typical live stream someone decided it would be funny to call the police and tell them that the popular streamer Swifty had “threatened someone with a knife”. Subsequently the police showed up on his doorstep and took him in to fill out paperwork, and it’s unclear as to whether he was actually placed under arrest or not.

The good news is that this most likely easily cleared up as his actions that night were, you know, recorded in front of thousands of witnesses. Apparently this is the second time this streamer has been arrested as a result of a false accusation during a live stream. It’s also unclear as to what action he can take against the individual for the false accusation.

The Instance #349: The Reaping

Diablo-3-reaper-of-souls

On this episode of The Instance, we celebrate 9 years of WoW, lots of little stuff that happened over the week, the undead female is looking…interested, Karazhan is getting the clean treatment, more on why you can’t fly till 6.1, how often we might expect an item squish, calls emails and more!

The Instance crew has returned to give you wise answers in lieu of some midnight conversation. To the people that have no idea what that means, listen to the Morning Stream only available here on the Frogpants Network. Why aren’t we seeing a new class this next expansion? With the up in resolution of the characters in WoD, are the required specs of WoW going up? Why a MOBA instead of straight-up fighting? And, are we looking at purchasing other forms of boosts in the Blizzard store?

The Instance #348: Pre-flight

Azurecloudserpent

On this episode of The Instance, let’s get this flying business out of the way, clarification and details on Mythic raiding, recruiting friends got better, feeling renewed about blizzard games, no free customization, how are those human females coming along, declining numbers and the future, why people cancel in the first place, the absence of Agrra and more!

Scott “I really didn’t mean to cause an uproar” Johnson and amateur Hearthstone card-crafter enthusiast William Dills are once again bringing you another reason to listen to The Instance in the form of another episode. Mr. Mark Turpan was going to join us of course, but then spoke ill of the Yogscast media machine and he has not been heard from since. A lot of questions came up this week and our intrepid crew pretends to find answers for their listening public. What is behind the subscription loss in WoW and how does Blizzard treat existing subscribers? And, what is the real motivation for moving on to Warlords of Draenor? What is there to be excited about in the next expansion?
