Hello, Readers.

Since last week's newsletter, there's been a reasonably last minute-ish announcement about a preview of Patch 8.2 being livestreamed, said livestream happening, and, following the livestream, YouTubers have been coming out with their own takes on Patch 8.2. It's quite interesting watching these takes, as rather than them being based on speculation, a select group of World of Warcraft YouTubers had the privilege of going to the Blizzard heardquarters in Anaheim, and being able to play and give feedback on the patch. We've included the initial reaction of Taliesin and Evitel in our news segment. However, if anyone wants other perspectives, then Wowhead has a round up of all the creators involved.

Make sure you keep an eye out for more information, as the PTR should be going live sometime this week. Also keep a careful eye out for spoilers; not everyone seems to know how to use spoiler tags and it sounds like there are going to be plenty of juicy story pieces.

I hope you all have a good week.
