Previous expansion thread: World of Warcraft: Legion general discussion thread 19 July 2016
So Patch 8.0.1 goes live in a few hours and here we are with another new xpac and another new thread!
I think the PvP level continuing on is a great thing but don’t care about War Mode. I left my World PvP days long behind me now and I really doubt I’ll care to go back. When I quest, I really just want to quest, ya know what I’m sayin’?
The news that Strand of the Ancients is being retired is fantastic! Now I’ll be able to block Temple of Kotmogu and Isle of Conquest and still not ever have to play SOTA! Win-win!
I love that Mages get a group buff again!
The listed changes to Arcane Mages seem like good ones, for once.
Legion was the best xpac since WotLK, no doubt, but I did think it was remarkably easy. It was enjoyable enough as an activity, but there was never a sense of achievement. I had multiple times in the past 2 years where I stopped playing for 2-4 months and it never affected my gear rating or my ability to raid or pvp. I managed to get 1 of every class to 110 with their main artifact at 75 AP or more and gear ilvl at 220+, even with vary casual playing time and all that time away from the game (I topped my main out at . I’m curious if BfA will have a similar feel or not.
I’ve deliberately avoided too much information gathering for Battle for Azeroth, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they do, what they kept from Legion and what they discarded. I do know that I don’t give a fuck about any of the new classes. Most of my toons are Gobs now and I like it that way. I got tired of gigantic toons that don’t fit thru doors when mounted; I like little toons that fit in places. I won’t be growing my orcs, although I might change a Blood Elf to a Black Hole Elf or Nebula Elf or whatever it is for Horde.
I still can’t order the CE which is a bummer. I have CEs for everything so far; I’ll get this one as soon as they put it on sale but the wait seems longer than in the past.
The weirdest thing for me is gonna be that I’m going to have to play on my laptop going forward; my desktop OS cannot be upgraded because of the hardware and Patch 8.0+ will not run on my OS (2008 Mac Pro w/ OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 for the curious). I’m sure the 2017 Macbook Pro will handle it fine, tho and I have a dock coming so I can use my regular keyboard and huge monitors.
I seriously hope they fix the stupid tiny default bag, but I’m not hopeful, if ya know what I mean. I also hope there’s a bigger bag for us Tailors to make since we’ve been stuck at 30 slots per for 4 years now.
What’s with Teldrassil & Lordaeron? Do they mean Undercity? Stuff I read was unclear about this.
Again, tho, I’m most looking forward to new areas to explore. Unfortunately, they chose Zandalar this time instead of someplace new, so I’ll have to listen to blatantly racist caricatures for the next 2 years in those zones (minimally: I turn most voice acting off); thanks Blizz. Of course the Alliance gets an all-new place while the Horde gets recycled racism. :rolleyes: Ah well, at least the terrain will be new.
What do y’all think?
