    Episode #391: May Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!
    When does Ahead of the Curve end? How do you feel about Spotify buying Joe Rogan's exclusive rights? What are your thoughts on the balance of the covenant abilities? Like is Spencer gonna have 4 druids in different covenants in case one is stupid OP? I just returned to the game and I was reflecting on how the NPC vendors etc. add to the story telling in the game. What are some of your favorites on each side and why? The Vulpera give you a feel if they are survivalist and encourage the player to be careful. The Dwarves often have a hearty “Great to meet you!” and “See you soon!” With all the great new customizations coming to shadowlands, are there any specifics you hope will come next? Either xmog or your characters themselves

Breath of fresh air!

Hey fellas, want to start by saying thank you to you both and the people that make this podcast happen, I listen to it religiously every reset and always look forward to what you may be discussing next! You talk about the game in such a way that it’s easy for people to comprehend and personally gets me pumped for the next week of WoW. This podcast alone has changed the way I play and has help me help others with little tricks and tips that might not be common knowledge and further my own understanding about certain aspects of the game as I also main warrior. You are both truly a breath of fresh air and brilliant at what you do. Keep up the good work!
Much love - Andy 🤙🏼

Wow-a-wee-a!

Great show!! Been listening for about 3months now and the optimism and enthusiasm you guys have for all things WoW is just fantastic! You both have a very balanced view of the game and give good criticism when it is due, often echoing the very thing my own group discusses during raids/ m+. This show has quickly become one of the highlights of my week, long may you continue! xx
