We’ve finished the Heart of Thorns story and it’s time to dig in and discuss what we think of it! We’ve got Gem Store, community, and game news and then launch into a heavily spoiler-filled discussion about the HoT story. If you have not finished playing the story and don’t want to be spoiled, bookmark this episode and come back when you’re done. Let us know what you think of the story in the comments to this post! Valiant’s Internet decided to interrupt the show again a few times; our apologies![symple_box color=”red” text_align=”left” width=”100%” float=”none”] Warning: Aaron and Miko were a little excitable this week and let fly a couple of naughty words. This episode therefore contains swearing; please do not watch/listen if you are offended by such language.
