As before and usually. Next patch will not come before last wing in LFR CN. We still missing two last wings for LFR. Then seaaon 1 is about to end.
I'm okay with an extended lull. I really regret not exploring the different Legion class campaigns with all the artifact weapons. Now in SL, I have some time to play three alts to explore the other covenant campaigns.
I sure hope so, and that it includes flying and fixing old content being solo-able again (I.E. Legion raids). Assuming everything will be ready and not rushed. Quality > quantity
they better release it asap along with new reward system for m+ and raid othewrwise the game will be deserted in few weeks.
Whatever you do devs, please don't rush because some people might complain they're already bored. And for those who are planning to take time off work as soon as an announcement comes out, DON'T.Now content wise, I'm hoping to see them push the lore and story in overdrive. The launch content was a bit short (per covenant at least, once you add them up there's obviously an ok amount). It was also a bit 101 and introductory. Develop the new characters further, who on earth are our Soulbinds with whom we're apparently bffs with? How about important characters meeting properly? The Morgraines super DK family reunion, Thrall and Draka? Vashj and Keal Thas? Was Garrosh just a tease? More on Vol'Jin and Tyrande arcs? Other ghosts who might show up such as Varian, Durotan, Grommash (real timeline ones not AU).Something more about the very suspicious Brokers as a side plot perhaps? Anduin becoming a temporary vilain against his also appeals to me, but that feels like it would be more of a 9.2 (something Uther could get involved with, not failing again at preventing another LK, potentially a good point for spirit of Varian or maybe even Arthas / Ner Zhul getting involved somehow?) Other stuff:New BG?Proper class balance (I know I know, I'm so dreamy and optimistic)New mechanics and more rewards from Torghast?A dungeon or two? One could be Maw themed and the other Oribos Broker conspiracy themed.It's pretty much confirmed that class tier sets are coming back in some shape or form, and obviously a new raidOK I shut up now.
I wouldn't expect anything till April honestly. what with LFR not being done and Blizzcon coming upI mean sure they could totally go "surprise we're dropping 9.1 1st week March" but that seems unlikely lol
So perhaps April for the next big raid. Hopefully we get 9.1 in late Feb or March for flying and a smaller Trial of Valor sized raid to tie us over until April-May.
You guys realize Garrisons were Blizzard's crack at player housing and yall hated them so much they'll almost certainly never attempt it again, right?Anyways, I hope Blizzcon has some serious story info and not just more vague "I promise all this %^&* I can't/won't tell you about will be good" hype like became the norm in BFA. I miss the times where they were just excited to tell us what's happening instead of just playing every single solitary thing close to the chest out of, idk, fear?
Of course it will, they really can't afford to push it to summer. Imagine raiding Nathria and these 8 dungeons for 6 more months. We need more content in short time spans
Gonna guess 9.1 end of march and raid mid-april
I would say late March or early April, they need to keep the four covenants relevant on each patch, this is an amount of effort far greater than the patches from previous expansions.
They could introduce a soul-thief faction, sort of covenant, that you can join at the same time, and give you the ability to switch to another covenants signature ability without leaving your original :P
I still need a month or 2 to get the M+ season 1 mount :)
We really need new content. In 1 month, upped 4 chars from 50 to 60, finished all Covenant storylines, CN 10/10 normal on two of the 4 chars. My sub just expired, and i have no need to add another. A new raid in March would be great. But we dont have nothing on test servers (they are still BFA).
I suspect we’ll get an an announcement of a filler story patch at the virtual blizcon in feb (likely launching mid March to coincide with the maxing of renown for those who are keeping on top of it), with a story to build up to the next raid in the .1 patch (which, given the length of the last few m+/Pvp seasons, I’d expect to be around the end of April/ start of may time. I don’t mind a bit of a wait for raids as long as we have something to pass the time. Shadowlands has a lot of potential for a rich lore environment, and an opportunity to tie up various story arcs. Hopefully we get to see this.
