Thank you Morgan and Talie for this lovely content, Taliesin is one of the few WoW content creators i admire. But i have to say something. Last time i watched Morgan's video, he had a pretty long "shards of domination" discussion. on the verge of 9.2 realise and during ongoing 9.1.5 playerbase decline. In this video, you guys are talking about how cool dragon riding is, some Tuskarr stuff is mentioned in the title. Meanwhile players like me, tbh, expected Warhammer 40k vibes from 9.2 instead of Dune/Zoomer themes, and Skyrim/High Fantasy/Full revamped foundation of the game on wich next 3-4 expansions would be built upon starting at Dragonflight, like Ion said in one of his interviews. In my mind, we had Vampire theme in 9.0, it was cool, Tolkien/Dark Fantasy theme in 9.1, wich is also cool. And after that we had tier sets and content degrade back to BFA level in 9.2, only good thing was the Zereth Mortis zone. Dragonflight alpha lookslike generic BFA-like expansion aswell, new interface is just like an UI addon, and dragon riding lookslike some regular world quest. New talent system is basically pruning and reshuffle of old BFA/SL talents and spells. Are you sure you guys didn't false advertise when was talking about (quote) "complete overhaul" during Dragonflight announcement trailer? Hogger and dragon aspects got their new 3D models, but players like me still use 8-BIT WOTLK Glad mounts on retail for 14+ years, meanwhile Scarab Lord mount was updated back in 7.3.5 to a good quality 3D Model. This really puzzles me. So my question is, do you guys really believe that you're discussing stuff that matters? Or just trying to please your average subscriber? Why would you downgrade quality of the game again instead of continueing where you left off in 9.1? Instead of giving us real Warcraft experience and really dope patch themes? I admire your effort to give something to strive for in m+, like new "m+ hero" achievements, it was also nice to make gladiator 2400 +50 wins, so more people could reach it (but downside is, its value is low now bcz it can be produced unlimited amounts of time instead of being percentage based), and it is great to see professions in Dragonflight becoming something so much more than they was before. This is great. But overall, please patch up some old 3D models that players actually use (armor, mounts), introduce legacy pvp vendors for people with old achievements, this is as essential as giving players other ways to progress their character (professions, m+). You guys are focusing only on "new" content, but not on the game as a whole, and somehow manage to underdeliver new content by bringing up less iconic designs and ideas, and always discussing some generic, routine stuff in your interviews. If i won't get a new badass cinematic-like 3D model for superdated Deadly and Furious Frostwyrms during DRAGON EXPANSION, i'll literally make screenshot in new cool looking armor on my old 8-bit Drake near updated Hogger, call it "brightfutureBlizzard.jpg" and put on as a wallpaper or social network picture, i'll also cringe alot.Tooltip of Furious drake should also be edited to "Some of Azeroth's mightiest dragons have been summoned across the veil between life and death to serve new masters with undying loyalty (But Hogger is more important lorewise)" (jk)
Please let us name our dragons! Dragonriding is already looking to be an amazing addition, like a 4 out of 5 from what I've seen and heard of it, but being able to name our dragons would add like .5 to that score for me!
i just pray and hope that blizz does good by this expac please dont let this turn out like shadowlands or wod
"They're still very much dedicated to the alt-friendly philosophy we began to see introduced towards the end of Shadowlands. Dragon riding mount aesthetic customization unlocks will be account-wide. They're still discussing dragon riding progress itself."If progression won't end up account wide, they have learned nothing. A bit worrying that this even needs discussion.
If they let us name our dragons I hope it's per character and not a shared single name in the mount book
please come out the beginning of december and not the end. so hard to get time off around the holiday. that's all i want.
I really like that guy!
I feel DS is still "On Course" for 22 because a lot of the normaly amazing art assets and cinematics coming out seem like they have been farmed off to third party design factories like fiverr. The art direction and skill design is super sloppy and inconsistent across the board.
Taking bets that by late October they will announce they are delaying til March. xD
