Theorycrafting and Class Discussion / Re: 8.1.x stuff

There were a few announcements in today's Q+A:

* You can buy Elixir of Tongues, which lets you understand the other faction's speech.  This is intended for cross-faction RP use.  It doesn't make your speech understandable to the other faction unless they also use it.  This is in the hotfix notes so it may already be live.

* In patch 8.2 (so not PvE season 2 but season 3), AP will be used to unlock new stuff on the neck, rather than traits on Azerite pieces.  Azerite pieces will still exist, but should be fully unlocked as soon as you get them.

* Arathi warfront rewards will stay at 340/370 in season 2, while Darkshore warfront rewards will go up to 370/400.  (Having two warfronts rewarding 400 gear would cut too much into how rewarding heroic raiding is.)

Subnautica is free on Epic's new game launcher for a week.  Next week Super Meat Boy will be free, I believe.

(I think you can also claim these via the web.  I already had the launcher installed because I thought about playing Fortnite once.)

It appears that Darkshore is buggy AF. Last night I and others went in and not only did we get the horrendous lag (*) that I saw on release day, we got utterly broken instances. Basically the NPCs stand around, the gated story bits don't move forward, you can't interact with anything, etc. To put icing on that cake, when you quit out of the broken instance you get a half-hour deserter debuff and can't even requeue.

I went off and did the Jaina storyline thing instead which is long and grindy and I'm glad I had my kid around or I would have completely missed the meme-achievement you get at the end.

I'm enjoying the meta of the newest expansion, although my games tend to follow one of two paths: killed in 6 rounds or less from aggro rush (Odd Paladin is the worst for me) or games that last forever (noting that I play Frost Jaina).

Not a fan of the new adventure mode, Rumble Run, because it reminds me too much of Witchwood's Monster Hunt. I played that one until I completed and haven't touched it since and my day one gut feeling is that RR is going to be the same. This is a stark contrast to Kobolds & Catacombs' Dungeon Run, which I still play at least a couple of runs of each week.

Shouldn't it be Gretzky or Gordie Howe?

I always played Diefenbaker when I made the Canadian Civilization in CIV 1.0 ...

What generates more culture, the Great Pyramids or a hockey rink?

Curious what Apert and the other Canadians think about Civilization VI's latest new Civ, available in the upcoming expansion.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH CANA-DAAAAAAAAAAAA.
