What im looking forward to?...Stupid question. What im always looking forward to.Achievements, lots and lots of achievements!
That's just pathetic. The best thing, guild-related changes got dumbed down to a new UI screen that should have been there to begin with. Guild BoA items and rewards for legendaries etc are gone as well I guess. So are guild-only patterns? I was hoping this would lower the amount of guild hoppersAlso Path of the Titans, while I might not have understood the system (well, they never gave a detailed explanation really), it sounded interesting.Overall, they do what they unfortunately did with WotLK - got insanely lazy. Compare Ulduar to any other raid instance; look at hardmodes in U vs those in ICC... devs shifting focus from putting effort and time into end-game to 'more achievements! guild achievements! new UI screen! wooooo'... Really doubt I wanna go back into a game where every 2 min I get an achievement and it's all about points, rep n stuff rather than completing real challenges in raids. I understand the need to cater for more casual gamers, but that doesn't justify removing all the cool ideas for others.</grumpy rant>
Good stuff, but I'm still waiting for the notes:*Death knight class has been removed and changed into a town crier cult with no weapon abilities or other useful skills as such (gold begging trainers will be added to all major cities).*Paladins are no longer available to the horde faction. *Shamans are no longer available to the alliance faction.
No Path of the Titans and no guild talents? I thought I was reading a joke, but it's real. :(And heroic SFK and DM released later?Well I suppose they were just throwing out ideas just to get our attention for Cataclysm and developing Path of the Titans was probably getting a bit late. Good thing archeaology will stay though.
What... Path of the Titans was one of the most awesome potential improvement to the game in years and they scrap it because its to tricky to get right... fail... another massive error for Blizzard...Looks like not many people will be interested in Archeology then... its gonna be mainly cosmetis items and collectables... what a waste of a potentially fantastic porf... why cannt you dig up parts of trade recipes that are thought to be lost to time etc etc... the you could make it also a trading game within a game to get the other parts of the recipes... a'la inscription decks... come on guys get the thinking caps on and make me wanna keep playing this damn game!Good call on dropping guild monies... that was a bit fail IMHO...
Hmmm not sure, was more excited with the first announcements. Archeology no longer feels like a cool new profession. Path of the Titans? Gone, and incorporated in the medium glyphs.No word about recycling?Guild talents removal, can understand it but not happy about it either, but new system seems OK. Have to wait and see.Must say I like the downhifting idea of raids. Happened to me quite a few times we would start on wednesday with 25 man and then on the following night not all or even half the members would be back. This would make that problem less cumbersome.With the removal of the Path of the Titans I hope they will finally find some time to develop a new login screen which gives people opportunity to organize the login screen (i.e. character order etc. Maybe view mail for all characters there too? Or access bank slots from alts and move them to others?ANyway, I feel a bit less enthusiastic, but then again I have confidence in Blizzard in still making it worthwhile.
Massive disappointment. I may wait until after the expansion is released to see if I'm still interested in the game to be blunt.
O_O Holy crap. I like quite a few of these changes. ;)
hey blizzard! why dont u cancel EVERYTHING u anncounced earlier and restart new? cause seriously.. path of the titans? GREAT IDEA... & its gone.Guild Talents? A specialisation on raiding or leveling.. twink guilds would be awesome, go there, race up to 85 & than switch to ure raid guild and go on raiding.. why is that bad? WHY?Why do u remove these 2 things that EVERYONE was looking forward to regardless of being a hardcore raider or just casual acm farmer or whatever. everybody loved this idea, some even prepared for that (twink guilds e.g.) and u CANCEL it.. why do u slowly turn this game into the biggest letdown blizzard has released ever? I bought all ure games, played 'em all, looked @every change and never ever screwed u up THAT big.. it's just sad seeing how a good game gets that ruined :(More annoucments like that and i'm gone.. but not for good..
To the post above me, that's a big overreaction. I've only played WOW for about a year now, but I even saw Guild Talents as complicated, considering up to over 500 differing opinions on what to get as talents. Also, Path of the Titans looked pretty cool, and I'm sad that it's gone; but I doubt that everyone was looking forward to it. And btw, it's better if you write persuasively without too much emotion, otherwise it just sounds like QQ. ~Better578EDIT: How is that ruining a good game? Cata still looks fantastic and I'm looking forward to it.
I think we're just going to have to trust blizzard in making their (hopefully) correct decisions on removing PotT and guild talents, although i'm disappointed these things are gone blizzard will hopefully try and keep up with our demands of gaming and keep us entertained for years more. fear not, people that are enraged by the sudden removal of these systems for i'm sure that blizzard will hear your cries and come up with something to fulfill that gap.
hmm. 3000 new quests i wonder if most of them are chains that go something like this (part 1) hey i got a great idea it will change all of azeroth and make it more fun (part 2) go to this instance that is not shipped with the xpac (part 3) yeah we changed our minds lets forget we even mentioned this.
One thing... the quests..... are OVER THREE THOUSAND
Blizzard sucks....Everything i was truely looking foward to is gone cause of second guessing... they didnt have to take things out, they could have twicked a few things... such has for the guild talents, when the GM wants to choose a talent, he can send out a guild wide "Ready check" It will stay on the screen for a few days and count how many people want the talent and how many people dont, majority wins... its not that hard blizzard, grow a brain and THINK!I really dont like anything the've done with this expantion... i LOVED the idea of guild currency, was confused on PotT but it wont matter now, i just hope everything works out, but i better still see those guild heirlooms
Unfortunately they removed the path of the titans for now..I was really looking forward to that.. but still medium glyphs would be awsome too :)Good job blizzard, Cataclysm on its way!
