Bit disappointed to hear the time skip clarification, that was interesting and could have been quite fun.
So the time skip might mean graphical updates for older zones finally? or is everything going to be instanced so that only the max levels can enjoy it?
People complaining about swapping are not even close to a hardcore player. Real hardcore players progress will be with class comps changes, hardcore players have a ton of alts to use in their progressions and people are complaining to the need of create another same character with the same class wtf, you are limeted ones! Hardcore players probraly not even care to the swap, they will have similar diferent class character but with other covenant if it will be a need. I'm tired of blizzard creating systems and systems, and something like covenants are not suppose to be like only a changeable build for each little situation. If you are a hardcore player that don't have a tons of alts or/and want to play with especific class and spec, you are not that hardcore, you will know the better covenant suitable for you in the situations you want or learn to know, or just embrace it and stop crying (this is not a moba).
