Episode 77 – Full Party

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 77th episode, we are back up to full strength … in numbers. After discussing all of the pharmaceuticals we all are on we get down to business by discussing what we’ve been up to: Breja has been here, there, and everywhere, Jen has been slowly leveling their seasonal hardcore Demon Hunter, Lanntonio managed to slip some puking in, in between games of Hearthstone, and Nevik continues to pursue the perfect greater rift to climb the leaderboards.

In this episode:

* We received a pair of emails from listener Adam! We love to hear stories of triumph or tragedy from our listeners, so send in yours to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com!

* Hot on the heels of Patch 2.2 PTR, game designer John Yang informed us on Twitter that the old Chocolate class sets would be receiving a 7th item to help add some flexibility in gearing for their set bonuses.

* Microtransactions are coming, but not for the NA/EU regions. We share our thoughts and opinions on this development and they may or may not surprise you! What are your thoughts and opinions on microtransactions in Diablo III? Send an email to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com and let us know!

Song of the Show:

Unfortunately Nevik has been devoting almost every waking moment to grinding away in Season Two and forgot to find something to treat your ears to. Fret not! Our next episode will almost assuredly (for really reals this time!) have a musical selection at the end of the show. Until then, enjoy some sweet chords by guitarist Jonas Lefvert.
