You know what I miss? Frostfire Bolt. They replaced it with Flurry, which functionally works roughly the same, but it doesn’t look nearly as awesome as the shard of ice wreathed in flame.

…wait, sorry. The new Warcraft expansion dropped last week and I’ve been kind of hyperfocused.

Though this episode is old, spoiler warnings are still in effect after the cut.
