Episode 18 – Tour of Villainy

I think we’ve broken our own record again, making this the longest episode. This wasn’t the intention, but I guess we’ll see if everybody who said “longer episodes please!” really meant it 🙂 I promise that this won’t be a habit and future episodes will get back under the hour mark.

This is part two of our guest interview with Rich. There was some very important, last minute news that was added just before we posted though which takes a little time to get through.

In this episode we discuss:

Episode 17 – Take Three!

Apparently you can only attach 1 media file per post in the RSS2 feed, and since the Infected PDF was the second thing I attached it took over.. Just like Sigler, I tell ya!!

So, here is the actual podcast episode… again.. I tried once before and it didn’t seem to take. So I just renamed the file, and we’ll see what happens!

Sorry, time is up and I had to remove the file from the post and the server. You can still listen to the book for free on Scott’s site though! I just found out that the limited time was on Random House/Crown’s side — but we are allowed to mirror it indefinitely. So, I’ve put it back up 🙂

Episode 14 – Building Healers

This is a bit of a continuation from last episodes information on different character builds. A listener specifically requested information on building a good healer which is why the healing Defender is discussed in-depth here.

As we go over in the episode, we are aware that Defenders are much more than healers (that they indeed are more buffers/debuffers than healers), but since there was a request specifically about healing, here it is.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Some quick news (Rikti portal XP update, and a contentious TF/SF change)
  • Villain Strike Force information
  • New Valentine mish in Atlas Park
  • Information about the Manticore/Sister Psyche wedding event
  • Our Defender/Healer disclaimer 🙂
  • Listener feedback
  • Another request for SGs to promote – here is your chance to get your SG some exposure and recruit some new blood! Send us your SG details: Name, Server, Website if you have one, the type of SG it is (role play, farming, PVP, etc.), and how to contact you in-game.
  • Also, let us know a preferred day/time for an in-game meet up!
