Episode 21 – Patch 2.1 and Leviathan Have Arrived! Patch 2.1 is finally released and Seasons are almost here, but the most exciting news is the addition of a third co-host! Everyone please welcome the newest member to the Workshop, Stephen “Leviathan” Stewart! Leviathan has been a long time fan of Diablo and is going to make a great addition to the team. This week the team looks at what to expect in the new patch, some new information we’ve gotten from the developers streams this past week and what our plans are for Season 1.

We’re not entirely sure what Chris Arnone’s excuse is; surely that magnificent beard of his could have compensated for the other two absent individuals on our production team… Happy Labor Day weekend! We will celebrate by not working on a show this week.

Episode 28: Warlords Release Date! Good news, everyone! We have a release date! Warlords of Draenor is slated to go live on November 13, 2014! Which Edge crew member had the closest guess? Will did! Speaking of release dates, Matt went into further detail discussing the raid release schedule. That leaves about two and a half weeks to level to 100. Is that enough time? Is it too little or too much? One of the newest features in Warlords is the Group Finder. Will offers his take on the new feature and what it means for players and how they handle group content. Will thinks that it’ll be a new game changing feature that will seed widespread use and could even revitalize the raiding community!

Too bad we ran out of time and couldn’t get around to discussing what our predictions were! When do you think the expansion will drop? With the beta becoming more and more polished with every build, Will wanted to take a look at the approximately levelling speed going from level 90 to 100. How hard do you plan on levelling?
