Episode 129 – Necromanceritis

Jen and Vesper excitedly discuss the Necromancer class that was revealed at BlizzCon 2016. Can’t wait to play one, and check out the new sets, Legendaries, and skills!

In this episode:

* Vesper and Jen share what they’ve been up to in-game – including both successes and disasters.

* You might be wondering why you haven’t heard Lanntonio on Shattered Soulstone in a while. The reason is a sad one. The apartment that Lanntonio and his family were living in had a fire, and they lost almost everything.

There is a Fire Tragedy Fund GoFundMe set up to help Lanntonio and his family. Please consider donating to it if you can (and/or posting the GoFundMe on social media so others can help, too.)

* We read and responded to tweets from @aliennationer, @nevikjames, @Mjpenn316, @Shawno, and @The_Breja.

Got something to say? Send a tweet to @ShatteredStone and we will read it off in the next episode. Or, you can send an email to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com. We will read it in our next episode.

Episode 128 – Diablo is Love, Diablo is Life

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

Blizzcon is rapidly approaching with a surprise or two awaiting Diablo fans. There’s also a surprise awaiting our listeners, but you’ll have to listen to discover what that surprise is.

In this episode:

  • Our guest host discusses what (s)he has been up to in Diablo 3 with the end of season 7 and the beginning of season 8.
  • Blizzcon is almost here and (some) Diablo fans are in a fervor expecting the moon with Diablo-related announcements at the convention. Will there be another expansion? Will Diablo IV be announced? Will we be let down again? A healthy discussion of keeping our expectations measured ensues as well as what could possibly be announced at Blizzcon.
  • Our Question of the Show for upcoming episode 129 is: Did Blizzcon 2016 satisfy your expectations? Send your answer via twitter (@ShatteredStone) or in an email to show@shatteredsoulstone.com.
  • We read and responded to tweets from: @Rilandune and @nevikjames. Thanks, guys!
  • We received an email from Age sharing a few answers for Jen, their sentiments on set dungeons, and that they have been going back through our back catalog of shows! Thank you for dedication!
