The second part of any three-part series is sluggish. Viewers have already been introduced to the characters and everyone knows there’s another installment coming, so nothing is going to be finalized. To keep the audience captive, creators enjoy wrapping character development in a neat sandwich of action. Consumers have their experience of Part 2 bookended with memorable pieces, while they subconsciously absorb a deeper understanding for the hero/heroine in the “boring part.”
In a nutshell (too many food analogies?), that’s exactly the experience that Episode 1.2 of Blackfathom Deeps will deliver. You’ll be engrossed by the excellent use of Life Tap and bemused by the shamans ability to never run out of mana while barely healing. All while listening to the tank tell every mob what it can and cannot do during pulls.
