In our 80th episode, we are still down a Jen – THANKS ALLERGENS – yet we persevere with our promise to switch to a weekly format/schedule. After some soundboard-on-a-mobile-phone shenanigans we get down to business and talk about what we’ve been up to: Lanntonio finally has some rank 25+ gems, Nevik FINALLY slaughtered some cows, and Breja has already surpassed paragon 100 with his hardcore seasonal puke doctor!

On April 25th at 11:56 NST a 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred 34 km (21 mi) east-southeast of Lamjung, Nepal. The devastation has been widespread and the death toll keeps climbing. Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal affected by the initial quake and continuing subsequent after-shocks. Numerous non-profit organizations have mobilized and arrived in Nepal, but they need your help. If you can help go to bit.ly/paypalnepalrelief which links directly to Paypal’s Nepal Earthquake Relief and Recovery Donation site. 100% of all donations will be directly sent to each respective organization with Paypal waiving all corresponding fees so that every cent donated is delivered to each non-profit organizations helping in the relief effort. Again, if you can, please help.

In this episode:

* As mentioned in episode 79 we had to push all the emails we received from our wonderful listeners due to time constraints. Then we received even more, and as you might have guessed, we had to push those emails to episode 81. Listener participation has been absolutely amazing and is primarily why we do this show, so keep them coming! We WILL get to all the emails we receive, even if occasionally we have to push a few to the next episode. Send in your stories of RNGesus triumph to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com!

* We received a bunch of tweets (as you might) from @Torrack1714, @Nogumebearsteve, @grindexp, @scanline75, @Shepherd_Sieja, @Kagerai_Leblue, @Hawgeye_CTR, @Kherova, and @sastewart111. Thank you for your tweets. Don’t forget that you, too, can send in your thoughts via social media outlets such as FacebookGoogle+, and Twitter.

* We posed the question on Twitter soliciting your opinions on ancient weapons. Love them? Hate them? We wanted to know. Be sure to follow the show on Twitter to participate in future Questions of the Show.

* Alkaizer put together some ideas and suggestions for the future of Diablo III and we discuss a few of the ideas he shared as well as a few of our own. Do you have something you would love to see in Diablo III? Let us know!

* For two shows in a row our beloved segment, Official Forum Thread Masterpiece Theater, makes another appearance. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! Your participation can ensure that this fun segment makes an appearance every show. Send your Official Forum Thread Masterpiece Theater audio segments (or humorous forum threads) to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com.

* If you were lucky enough to score tickets to Blizzcon and have nothing to do the Thursday night before the con, we have an idea for you. Con Before the Storm (formerly known in years past as World of Podcasts) is running a Kickstarter campaign to make this amazing event EVEN BIGGER THAN LAST YEAR … if that’s even possible ^^;

* Blizzard Watch lore master Matthew Rossi is back at again with another Diablo-themed Know Your Lore (Tinfoil Hat Edition) focusing on the potential storyline of what we might see in a second expansion for Diablo III.

* Popular Diablo III Twitch streamer DatModz, for funsies, leveled a fresh monk from 1 to 70 in ~66 seconds. Why? Why not? It was for fun.

* Wizards are in a really good place right now thanks to the changes to the Tal Rasha’s set and our good friend – and wizard extraordinaire – Jaetch put together a video guide of a “Melee” Tal Rasha Wizard build. It looks like a lot of fun!

* Blizzfront is an amazing and useful Blizzard news curator that is extremely mobile friendly. Bookmark it on your smart phones to keep up-to-date on all of the Blizzard goings-ons while on the go!

* T. Mac has another take on the GOD MODE MONK with his GOD MODE wizard video guide. As with other “god mode” builds, this one centers on having an In-Geom. It’s an amazing sword (so as long as it rolls at least 9 seconds).

* Finally, we leave you with this, a HC 4 player Greater Rift 60 clear. YUP. GR60. HARCCORE. Power creep *IS* real ^^;

Other Entertainment/Games:

* While some of the hosts may not be fans of the Halo series, at least Nevik is. Not only does Nevik love the games, but he also enjoys the expanded universe and lore of Microsoft’s Halo series. Unfortunately the movie, Halo: Nightfall, was a big bag of MEH. If you’re a diehard Halo-fan, you may enjoy this … but you can skip it, if you want.

Song of the Show:

Our other beloved segment makes its triumphant return and what better way to celebrate its return than by featuring the latest sick lyrics from our good friend Melkor(ious). Melkor is back with Forum Warriors: State of the Union and as always is an impressive display of lyrical dexterity. Check out more of Melkor’s work over at his YouTube channel.

* Fan of Anime? Fan of Mecha? Fan of Mecha Anime? Be sure to check out Aldnoah.Zero which recently concluded its second (and final?) season over at Cruchyroll.

* One of the best things about Final Fantasy X is the voice acting. Top notch, never any forced moments, especially forced laughter. NOPE.

Song of the Show:

While technically not the official Song of the Show – this beloved segment will be making a triumphant return Soon™ – we didn’t want to leave you without something musical to enjoy. So we bring to you the song/trailer of the Hearthstone: Blackrock Mountain expansion. It’s quite catchy, despite what some of the hosts may think of the actual game :)

In our 78th episode, we are unfortunately down a Jen once more. THANKS ALLERGENS. After an extremely brief introduction we get straight down to business by discussing BREAKING Diablo news and what we’ve been up to: Breja is closing in on seasonal paragon 100, Lanntonio got his witch doctor to the T6 promised land, and Nevik lost his wizard.

* We received a bundle of emails from Shayds and Kherova! We love to hear stories of triumph or tragedy from our listeners, so send in yours to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com!

* We received a metric ton of tweets from @Kherova, @TheQuadler, @BrentDoomfield, @scanline75, @Shepherd_Sieja, @TheInedibleF, @eG_acefisher1, @grindexp, @TheWMWorkshop, @RhoWoW, @shawno, @Gizmozord, @PansFolley, @Skipfridgy, @CruentusRelic, and @Kagerai_Leblue. Thank you for your tweets. Don’t forget that you, too, can send in your thoughts via social media outlets such as FacebookGoogle+, and Twitter.

* We posed the question on Twitter that was quickly invalidated by some late breaking news from Blizzard. Yet it was interesting to see just how far off all of us were for predicting the end of Season 2, when Patch 2.2 would deploy, and finally when Season 3 would start. Be sure to follow the show on Twitter to participate in future Questions of the Show.

* Hours before recording this show, Blizzard decided to finalize and announce their plans for Patch 2.2 and when Season 2 would end and Season 3 would start. Needless to say we were shocked with how soon everything was going to happen. What are your thoughts? Too soon? Not soon enough? Just right? Let us know by sending an email to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com.

* BUT WAIT, SOMETHING ELSE AMAZING HAPPENED! Shattered Soulstone clan member Electryon dropped a little suggestion that BLEW Nevik’s mind. We have Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Treasure Goblin Spooker and soon to be added is The Corrupted Ashbringer and we can probably safely assume to see Frostmourne in the future, but what about the Warglaives of Azzinoth? Melee Demon Hunter anyone? LET’S MAKE THIS A REAL THING!

* Oh yah, and Blizzcon 2015 was announced. No big deal, right? Okay, we’re just being silly. If you’re looking to attend the convention this year, be sure to check out Blizzard’s official tips for securing tickets. Are you planning on being in Anaheim in early November?

* It is with heavy hearts that we regret to inform you that we did not produce an Official Forum Thread Masterpiece theater (again) for this episode.

* Feeling a bit saucy? Need to spice up your Diablo III gameplay? Davlok has you covered with his Gong Mode: Sriracha Edition Monk featured on the most recent Play Your Way Thursday feature. We’re sure it will heat things up!

* We realize that not every one favors the best class in the game, but fear not – good friend of the show and fellow Diablo podcaster Leviathan of Blizzpro and The Westmarch Workshop fame experimented with the changes to the barbarian on the Patch 2.2 PTR and found an amazing build he has coined as the Rock n’ Roll barbarian. Check out his videos where he goes over the build and then demonstrates how the build works in a GR50 … ROCKIN!

* Patch 2.2 is going to shake up the Legendary Ring meta quite a bit and Diablo.IncGamers recently published a guest article going over in detail how the ring meta is going to change.

* If you have been a long time listener of the show the name Matthew Rossi should be quite familiar. In fact we mentioned him last week, and he’s back again with another Diablo-flavored Know Your Lore article over at Blizzard Watch going over the first part of the History of the Nephalem. If you’re even remotely interested in fleshing out some of the lore bits of the game, be sure to check this article (and all of his future articles) out!

* Up until Nevik realized a distinct lack of monk representation he was all in favor of a cyberpunk Diablo. Check out the Fan Art Collection compiled over at Diablo.IncGamers featuring some of the amazing pieces of mash-up fan art.

* Finally, are you a transmog fanatic? Have you come up with a slick look for your character(s)? Be sure to submit your transmog ideas to Blizzpro’s newest Diablo feature: Transmog Tuesday.

Other Entertainment/Games:

* We are all fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead and if you’re a fan too, you should head on over and give the Dead Fans Talking podcast a listen.

* Disappointed by the latest edition to SimCity? You’re not alone and the folks over at Paradox Interactive put together a fantastic game – Cities: Skylines – that should satisfy event he most discerning SimCity fan.

* Finally we leave you with a game that Nevik has already crowned his Game of the Year for 2015. Ori and the Blind Forest by Moon Studios is simply stunning, from the fluid gameplay, to the gorgeous artistic aesthetic and moving plot line you’re sure to fall in love, especially if you’re a fan of Metroidvania-style games.

We would love to hear all about what you’ve been up to since season two started. So send us an email and tell us what amazing loot you’ve had drop!

* Hot on the heels of season two starting up Blizzard decided to tease us with a First Look of Patch 2.2, coming Soon™ to the PTR. Could this mean that season two will definitely be shorter than season one? Only time will tell, but let us know what has you most excited about the next content patch.

* As a preclude of what to expect in season two when it starts community manager Nevalistis will be wrangling together Wyatt Cheng, Travis Day, and Don Vu for another Tavern Talk on Tuesday, February 10th at 11:00am PST. They are likely to do a quick post-mortem on the first season and give insight on what they hope to accomplish with seasons going forward.

* Rumors spreading like wildfire is nothing new for the Diablo franchise and Blizzard Entertainment in general, but this most recent rumor gained a lot of traction and momentum on the Internets. Fact? Fiction? We give our opinions on the matter as well as our frustrations with reporting without credible sources.

Question: What are Your Season 2 Plans?

Tags

, ,

Usually we toss out a question to be answered on Twitter and include the responses on the next show. That’s all well and good, but not everyone tweets and occasionally a tweet may get left out. With as grandiose of an occasion as the beginning of Season 2 is, we figured we offer another way for our listeners to participate and have their voices heard.

Are you excited for February 13th? Will you be taking the plunge and diving head-first with seasonal play? Will you be trying a new class? Or will you dip your toe in to playing Hardcore mode for the very first time? Or will you stick with your existing characters and continue to fine-tune them and push higher in to the Greater Rift levels?

What are you plans, if any, for Season Two? Let us know by commenting below!

[Official Announcement of the start date for Season 2]

Episode 73 – Tyvalir Finds Season 2

In this episode, you will hear from both Breja and Jen. The goal of all the hosts is to start putting shows out on a more regular basis. Sometimes it will be all of us doing a show, and other times it will be one or two people.

In-game, Breja got his Hardcore Seasonal character up to Paragon 75 (despite being really busy with work). Jen got her Softcore Seasonal character, who is using a shield that looks like an octopus, up to Paragon 91. She also killed a great big Treasure Goblin named Snitchley.

Episode 72 – Season 2 Where Are You?

Hey, look! It’s another episode of Shattered Soulstone! Several attempts were made to record the show during the week of Christmas, but that just didn’t end up working out. The Skype gods smited us, over and over again. We didn’t give up, but we did learn why so many other podcasts chose not to try and record a show during that very busy week.

As usual, we started off by talking about what each of us had been up to in-game. Lantonnio has been playing D3 on console and also working on the ladder in D2. Breja has been “dabbling” in D3 Season 1. Jen has been running more bounties in D3 and working on a few last achievements in Season 1.

In this episode:

* We got a lovely email from Rob, who started his email with “Greetings from the Netherlands!”

* Scanline sent us an awesome little “audio email”.

* You can share your Diablo related thoughts, comments, and questions with us by sending an email to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com

* We read, and respond to, dozens of tweets send in by listeners of the show.  Tweets this time came from: @Paidtokill5440, @Sscytheandshield, @xbrokenxfirex, @Jaetch, @Kagerai_Leblue, @Moogyver, @sadromeo, @Rilandune, @grindexp, @JCMonkeyD3, @HomeTownHero008, @Cybrwolf0, @sastewart111, @scanline75, and a couple of tweets from @ShatteredStone. Thank you for your tweets. Don’t forget that you, too, can send in your thoughts via social media outlets such as FacebookGoogle+, and Twitter.

CONTEST!!!

Originally, we planned to sing you all a little “Diablo-ed up” Christmas Carol (as our “Song of the Show”). But, then the recording of the show got delayed and it felt kind of late to be singing Christmassy songs after the holiday had ended. The good news is that we have turned the creative lyrics that Lantonnio wrote into contest that all of you can participate in!

Step one: Record yourself singing this “Diablo-ed” up parody of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”:

You know Magda, and butcher, and
Mephisto, and baal,
andariel, and Duriel, and
belial and Azmodan
But do you recall
The most infamous demon of all

Diablo, the blood Horned Demon
had a very blody huge Horn
and if you ever saw it
you would even say it Rors.

All of the other Demons
used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Diablo
play in any of the demonic games.

Then one Evil Christmas eve
Bielsabob came to say:
“Diablo with your Bloody Horn SO BIG,
won’t you Terrorize the world tonight!?”

Then all the Demons Hated him
as they shouted out with Fear,
Diablo the Bloody Horned Demon,
you’ll go down in Misery!

Step Two: Send that recording to the show Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com. Let us know if you want us to play it in an upcoming episode, or if you would prefer to keep that “off the air”. Keep in mind that we want you to record it “acapella”, (which means you don’t need to put any music in the background – just sing!)

Step Three: All of us at Shattered Soulstone will listen to, and evaluate, the entries. Somebody will win the prize of $20.00 in Battle.net. You must send in your entry before the end of January of 2015.

Links for you to Visit:

* Nevalistis notes that patch 2.1.2 PTR will be available through the holidays.

* Tyvalir popped into the Legendary Workshop 2.0 forum thread on Battle.net to say he’s been reading and following it. There’s some really cool ideas in there to check out. Got a good idea of your own? You might want to take a minute to add your thoughts to that forum thread.

* Nevalistis popped into the Trials – Why the GR System is Failing forum thread on Battle.net to say she is “taking notes”. If you have thoughts about the GR System, it may be worth it for you to go over and post those thoughts over there.

* If you missed it over the holidays, take a few seconds to watch Jaetch’s D3 Christmas Video:

* While you are at it, don’t miss Archon’s video funny Diablo parody video “Leave the Group”:

* The Story of Diablo was updated in December. Flip through this storybook, check out the awesome artwork, and get a “crash course” in Diablo lore.

* Patch 2.1.2 PTR Patch Notes got updated on December 8, 2014.

* Associate Game Designer John Yang, Lead Technical Artist Julian Love, and Community Manager Brandy Camel did a Legendary Workshop Lifestream early in December. If you missed it, you can watch the recorded version now.

A New Segment Appears!

In previous episodes, all of us at Shattered Soulstone have gotten a little “off the rails” while we were discussing what we did in game.  Of course, we want to share with our listeners what each of us has been doing while playing Diablo, Diablo 2 or Diablo 3.

However, all of us also play games outside of Diablo (Shocking, I know!) and also sometimes watch movies and read books.  We figured our listeners do that too, and so, a new segment appears!  Towards the end of this episode, and upcoming ones, each of us will take a moment to share what we have been up to in other Blizzard games, and non-Blizzard games, and also briefly talking about what we have been watching or reading.

…Unless, of course, y’all really don’t want to hear that kind of stuff.  Let us know if you like it or if we should get rid of this new segment.  Your opinions are important to us!
