Episode 106 – Nevik’s Bloody Tip

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 106th episode Nevik and Breja are back to talk all the Diablos with you. It has been another slow week in terms of exciting news, so instead we focus more on formulating plans for next season: Breja is thinking of going softcore, and Nevik keeps flip-flopping on class focus.

In this episode:

  • This is another one of those rare instances where we did not receive a single email, but that’s understandable with the holidays looming and the end of the season still a ways off. 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!
  • Will the crew manage to make it out to Blizzcon 2016? Will there even be a Blizzcon next year? We discuss the hurdles that prevented all of the hosts from attending this year’s convention.
  • Speaking of Blizzcon, Blizzard has released the official Blizzcon 2015 Photograph Gallery taken throughout the duration of the 2 day convention. Contained is a gem that has hit full-meme potential.
  • The Patch 2.4 PTR will be undergoing a complete progress wipe with the newest update in an effort to collect more accurate tuning issues after a couple of bugs skewed the data way off the chart.

Episode 105 – Shattered Hoodstone

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 105th episode the Patch 2.4 PTR is here and the hype train is going at full speed. CHOO CHOO! We then get down to business discussing what we’ve been up to: Breja continues to struggle finding time to play, Nevik is recharged, and Lanntonio is contemplating focusing on a single class next season.

In this episode:

  • We read, and respond to a solitary email from first time contributor, Ryan. 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!
  • The PTR for Patch 2.4 is HERE! We sound like a broken record, but each and every single patch continues to improve upon the game. Do you have any souls left to reap? Needless to say, we are excited and give some impressions from the brief amount of time we’ve had on the PTR.
  • Does all of the free content we have been receiving rule out the possibility of a 2nd expansion? Why is Team 3 giving us so much without asking for anything in return? While the former question is still up for debate, a recent interview from PCgamesN with Josh Mosqueira gives some insight on why so much has been added to the game without being locked behind a pay-wall.
  • Recently there was a job-posting for a position to return Blizzard classics to the glory that they deserve. Does this mean Diablo II is being remade? We discuss what the position could mean for the heralded pinnacle of the series.

  • Even with everything that Patch 2.4 is bringing, there has been MORE datamined from the client and DiabloFans has been happy to share. Do note that everything datamined might not be intended for 2.4, it does highlight that there is indeed a metric ton of cosmetic options coming in the future.
  • With the dust settling on the info-dump from Blizzcon 2015, community manager Nevalistis put together an official Blizzcon 2015 round-up including links to the extensive coverage from the show.

Episode 104 – Mother Grabbing Blizzcon

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 104th episode we are back and have a ton of Blizzcon tidbits to discuss. Lanntonio joins us mid-stream while getting down to business discussing what we’ve been up to: Breja decides to get physical, Lanntonio’s world has been spinning, and Nevik decided he needed yet another monk.

Episode 103 – Party in Mah Pants

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 103rd episode we are back at almost full strength (in more ways than one) with Jen rejoining us. We then get down to business and discuss what we’ve been up to: Jen completed Chapter 4 of her seasonal journey, Breja spoiled a Pizza, and Nevik’s static charge has been nullified.

In this episode:

  • We read, and respond to an audio email from Kherova. 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!
  • We, well Nevik, failed to come up with a timely Question of the Show this week, but we did come up with one for our next show! What do you hope to hear out of Blizzcon 2015? Let us know and all responses will be read on episode 104! Be sure to follow the show account, @ShatteredStone, on Twitter for future Questions of the Show.
  • Botting is still very much on not only our minds, but those of our listeners. Especially after someone on Twitch managed to accidentally stream their bot running. We continue the discussion at length (maybe too long?) about some of the possibilities as to why there hasn’t been a response from Blizzard and Team 3 yet.
  • Jen is back with another installed of Jen’s Lore Corner this time delving in to the lore behind King Leoric’s beheaded wife, Queen Asylla.

  • With Blizzcon 2015 ALMOST HERE there has been a lot of Diablo-themed cosplay popping up on the internets. Mr. Jechgo captured some at the Quebec City Comiccon 2015 (along with a lot of other cosplay).

Episode 102 – Piles of Nevik’s Corpses

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 102nd episode we are back for a well-timed recording as Nevik’s Niners got absolutely demolished. We then get down to business and discuss what we’ve been up to: Breja took back the top host puke doc slot, and Nevik laid two pancakes to rest.

In this episode:

  • We read, and respond to an email from Ogopogo. Listener participation has been absolutely amazing and is primarily why we do this show, so keep them coming!
