In this episode, we are joined by a very special guest, Archon the Wizard! After catching up with what Archon has been up to we get down to business by discussing what we’ve been up to in-game: Lanntonio cleared Inferno … on the Playstation 3, Nevik inched his wizard closer to paragon 100, Breja came to a realization about his puke doctor, and Jen has been planning and preparing for con-crud.
