Episode 95 – LEMON-gendaries

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 95th episode, Nevik does the heavy-lifting all by his lonesome as Breja, Jen, and Lanntonio were sadly unavailable to record. With Season 4 officially open Nevik gets straight to business and talk about what he’s been up to: getting shut down by Kadala.

In this episode:

  • We read and respond to a pair of emails from Pooleh and Funktropus. Listener participation has been absolutely amazing and is primarily why we do this show, so keep them coming! We WILL get to all the emails we receive, even if occasionally we have to push a few to the next episode. Send in your stories of RNGesus triumph to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com!
  • How did your first weekend of Season 4 go? We inquired on Twitter how kind RNGesus has been to you. Be sure to follow the show account, @ShatteredStone, on Twitter for future Questions of the Show.
  • Season 4 is HERE! Nevik shares his season 4 exploits including the highs and lows sprinkled with a few tips and/or tricks that might help your seasonal journey.
  • OFFICIAL FORUM THREAD MASTERPIECE THEATER IS BACK! With season 4 starting, complaints of the current end-game meta of XP farming trumping everything are popping up and Nevik finds such a thread for our enjoyment. Your participation can ensure that this fun segment makes an appearance every show. Send your Official Forum Thread Masterpiece Theater audio segments (or humorous forum threads) to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com.

  • This past Tuesday, September 1st, members of the Diablo team answered questions from the Reddit community in another Reddit AMA Diablo Q&A. If you’re not interested in digging through the hefty thread, DiabloFans, BlizzPro, and DiabloII.net all have great round-ups to give you the TLDR.
  • TamplierPainter is back with another amazing piece of art, this time focusing on our favorite Lord of Terror (well … there is only one Lord of Terror), Diablo.

Other Entertainment/Games:

  • Wait. Other games and entertainment exist? It’s not all SEASON 4? We kid, we kid. Without Breja, Nevik skips over talking about the only other thing in the world: Fear the Walking Dead.

Episode 30 – Pronouncing the Inconceivable

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In this episode, our 4th Musketeer sadly could not join us on account of a medical emergency (don’t worry, everything is fine). Nevertheless the rest of the crew gathers to discuss what we’ve been up to in-game: Breja levels up during the course of the show, Jen smashes through a portion of Act 1 Nightmare, and Nevik cleared Inferno with his melee demon hunter.

In this episode:

* We read, and respond to, another mountain of email we received from our wonderful listeners. This batch comes to us from Zesty, Lord Bacon and Master Do. Thank you for the many emails! Keep them coming!

* Considering the volatile subject of WHERE’S THE PVP? we give our takes on the situation in an attempt to put the whole thing in perspective. Some good ideas come out of the discussion as to how we’d like to see PVP implemented.

* In lieu of our font of knowledge, Lanntonio, being absent, Nevik attempts to give a (brief) market report on set pieces.

* Sadly the podcast, Dungeon Crawler, will be coming to an end. That means the gaping hole that is Diablo podcasts will be even larger. Their final episode will be released Sunday, December 23rd. #sadface

Housekeeping Note: We did not get around to going in-depth with a specific class and its potential, or most popular builds on account of going long with our discussions resulting from the fantastic emails we received. Rest assured we will cover each class in detail, either on the podcast, or through blog posts on this very blog. Cheers!
