Episode 58: WoD is here! Lumpen and Kimmi talk about their first impressions of the expansion and share some tips and observations. Of course, there are tons of things to talk about and not enough time, so this is just the beginning.

(Was also uncut for time’s sake, FYI.)

Episode 55: Lumpen and Kimmi give their impressions on the patch and all of the changes. They also highlight a few addons, Lumpen gets a new keyboard, and then rubs salt in Kimmi’s wound. The show was actually recorded over a week ago, but Kimmi had trouble getting quiet time to edit. We do apologize.
