so we got some of the old dungeons back and remastered? sweet cant wait for it
I don't know how I feel about a new UBRS. Especially as a 5 man dungeon. UBRS was one of those classic puggable raids that was so much fun, I don't know if I want that memory changed so drastically. LIke ZG becoming a dungeon instead of the 20 man raid that was so much fun for my guild for so long. Yes it is all well and good to revisit the past and for folks who never got the chance to see it, to use it as something fresh and new, but sometimes we want to hold on to something of the past. With that said though, It was such a fun place, with some really historic pieces of gear (Lava Dredger anyone?) it will hopefully be just as much fun in a new and fresh way.
New auchindoun looks awesome and I guess I will spend my whole day looking at that garrison, probably.
Honestly,I dont know how I feel about the whole time travel thing.... I'm glad blizz is including draenor, orc, and draenor lore and all but I feel like they could have got some better story than, "Oh garrosh escapes and travels time." Come on blizz your better than this. either way im sure it will still be a great game that ill love ahaha.
So, having had the opportunity to attend and even get a question in at the Q&A panel I have to say I'm incredibly impressed with the direction they're taking raiding. This new set up is going to allow them to focus on the really tightly tuned material that is going to be competitive while opening up more and more content to groups of players that have irregular/morphic schedules. Their focus on making stats engaging and removing the cascade effect is going to really make gearing up interesting without making it feel like there's necessarily a single BiS list for your character (Maybe lifesteal and cleave each have their place so an item for you that has either would be great).Further, the morphing of stats as well as set bonuses make playing your various specs much more accessible, as a tank I'll be able to dps an LFR if I feel like it without losing lot of performance. Completely looking forward to this xpac, I might even brush up on some lore.
I'm ready to see some more information on Item squish and how it will be handled. The Garrisons look like fun (Your farm on speed) and the new skins I'm truly excited for. BLIZZARD TAKE MY MONEY!
I really hope blizzard can do something about their broken timeline. I'm an active role player and its tough to get into character in northrend knowing Arthas is already dead haha. I know it would take a TON of time and resources but a man can dream. And the recognized it in the Q and A. Admitting is the first step ;)
With all the new changes, this will be an interesting expansion for sure!
I just wonder how awesome the mythic only mounts i'll never be able to get will be.
I am REALLY looking forward to this expansion! I mentioned the Toybox and heirloom changes to my wife (who is a big collector of vanity stuff!) and she flipped out. We asked for bigger bags.... we don't really need bigger now.... How will this effect the tailors, I wonder?
Woot for more complex raid fights by switching to mystic.
Love the idea of expanding flex raiding!
I wonder how they'll implement the new character models. I really hope they give us a free character customization so that we can see all of the new customization options.
I really feel like people need to stop whining about the 20 man mythic. How many times do you have to answer the same question? I come from one of those 10 man raiding guilds myself, and I'm excited to start building up the rooster and kick ass with more guildies. I think the merged realms will go a long way to that goal.
As I read through a lot of these questions, I can't help but to giggle at some of the answers. xD More red shirts! I loved those ones. Can NOT wait for this xpac; so excited for player housing! I hope they evolve more with the pet battling system too. Hint hint, add breeding!
Only having 4 dungs for 9 levels feels very weak. We have nearly the same number opening when we hit 100. I really hope they decide to add one or two more to balance it out.
New expansion is shaping up nicely. Like what I have seen so far as the changes in the flex raiding since WoW has been losing more and more players as of late. Hopefully, this new xpac will get some former players back as every expac usually does, but keeps them this time playing, instead of burning through everything in a month or two then getting bored and leaving. Can't wait for it to come out, looking forward to the new content and Mythic dungeons.
I have a lot of capped toons, and I have heard mixed reviews about the fact we will be able to use the same gear with each spec and it will shift when we swap to primary and secondary specs. I hear on one side that it's catering to the group of people who don't want to spend time fighting for their gear for each available spec, but I've also heard it's for those of us who have a plethora of toons and simply lack the time to grind raids/LFR's/flex/dailies/etc to get enough to kick our pixal selves into the next bracket. Personally, I think it's both, which makes sense for a company and the player. I have two toddlers, but still find a way after work once they are asleep to do my dailes and get some raiding in, putting my capped toons not at the tippy top by far but still averaging around 510 item level. So, I look forward to having more time to run more things as well as getting them all to the upcoming cap, without running out of bag space for two sets of gear and going cross eyed scrounging for that last quest giver for the last daily before the reset happens lol. So far I haven't actually been anti any of the new changes, and I like how it's being formatted to cover every type of wow gamer.
Theyre doing what people want which i hope turns out well.
Really loving all the new features so far apart from the mythic mode. As a 10man heroic group, getting 7-8 more "good" raiders will be a bit tough but at least you can built to it while raiding normal or heroic (lol flex and normal sorry...).
