Episode 36: Warlock Exotic Armor - Part 1

August 23, 2016

Episode 36: Exotic Sandals Vacation MOAR EXOTICS! We’re really jamming to get them all in before Rise of Iron, so we’re moving on to Armor. In what was originally supposed to be a single episode focusing on Warlock Exotics, we somehow managed to drag it out to a 2-parter. We were missing Gabble (our resident Warlock) for this episode, so we hope you like dropslash’s (part time Warlock) voice because you’re going to hear him say “uh” 15,000 times. We chat about creatively naming 3 different Exotics “Nemesis Light”, “Light Beyond”, and “Light Beyond Nemesis” (seriously), lava stones, [...]

Episode 35.5: Strength of the Pack  Well, we made it all the way here. The last of the Exotic Heavy Weapons gets a special show all it’s own. That’s right, this episode is all about Gjallarhorn. Per usual, we’re diving into the history of Gjallarhorn, both in the lore and among the Guardians who wield it, but on this show we also invited our listeners and members of the community to send us their stories. So join us as we tell some truly legendary tales of loss, love, engrams, pronunciation, strange coins, glory days, rage, revenge, regret, insane luck, and a whole lot more as we look back on the Exotic that made us gods of the Year 1 battlefield.

Huge thanks to everyone who sent us amazing stories for this episode!
