Marty, Thom and Ryan.. well mainly Marty and Ryan 😂, take an overview at raiding in World of Warcraft: Legion so far and break down some of their favourite encounters, what Blizzard have been doing right, what’s not been tickling their fancy and more!


Last Orders

If you enjoyed this episode’s chatter about raiding then why not check out the latest episode of The Lounge.

This month Marty, Thom and Michael were joined by Sil (Battle Chat Show / Girls Gone WoW) as they took a look at Instances in World of Warcraft.

From their first steps into a dungeon to the highs and lows of raiding, they cover it all in this round table discussion.


Many thanks to Ryan from the Blizzard Umbrella and The Raiders Confessional podcast for joining us today!

HearthWatch: A Hearthstone Overwatch Infusion.

What if Overwatch invaded the tavern in Hearthstone and became actual playable cards?  Blizzard have said in the past that Hearthstone will only be pulling ideas and characters from the Warcraft Universe (hence the name Heroes of Warcraft.. Hehe!), but here at The Blue Recluse we like to dream big.

Here’s a selection of Hearthstone cards we have created with an Overwatch flavor.



Which characters from the Blizzard world would you like to see in Hearthstone? Tweet at us (@TBRPodcast) with your own ideas, or make a suggestion and we’ll do our best to create it!

‘Overwatch Beta is having it’s lights switched off for Christmas, while in Hearthstone it’s candy canes and gifts all round… Ho ho ho!’

Even Hearthston now gets to celebrate Christmas with this Winter Veil themed tavern brawl that should hit launchers during this week.
