    Episode #494: December Patron Q&A!

    Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players! On this episode Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas find out what's on the TSZ patrons minds with the December 2021 Patron Q&A!






    Episode #494: December Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!
    What is the advantage of even adding a second legendary versus just improving the baseline Covenant abilities? If the WoW devs gifted you each with the ability to create your own expansion with full creative control, what would it be? I'm talking story, setting, NPC's focused on, systems, raids, dungeons, music, the whole shebang. What is your dream dot zero scenario? At what age will Jason's twins start playing wow? My kids started around kindergarten/first grade, but when they learned to read I made a rule that they had to read the quest text. What special rules will Jason make for his kidlets? How long before they will be raid ready? Question for the show, what is your favorite zone that wasn't in vanilla? Are looking forward to the new tier sets and would you sport them?

Change to Alliance?

Hey guys! Been a long time listener and love the show.
I have a question that’s been on my mind and thought I’d throw it out there to you guys.
I started at the very end of classic and have been a loyal Member of the Horde from then.
My wife has never played but really wants to and we were thinking on going Alliance because it would make the game new to me again.
I’ve been a avid raider the whole time playing and shoot for AOTC but not much further. I am looking for something similar on the alliance side. Thinking changing to a new server that would be better for alliance as well.
What is your thoughts on the Pros of changing to Alliance?
Keep up the great work!

Thank you
Sophiruss (so-fire-russ) on Emerald Dream

Renewed passion for WoW

I used to play A LOT 10 years ago. Since then I’ve played maybe a few month of each expansion. Since finding this podcast I actually know things go do to keep me engaged with the content. I love the format of the show and keep up the great work.

PS. I looked for the show in instagram and found a shoe store with your exact same name and logo. You should hit them with a cease and desist.
