(FYI, i havent been keeping up with any class, cause blizzard stopped giving me beta access after i skipped cata)



Im well prepped, i have every class @ 100 (avg ilvl690~) besides monk and DK, Been feral druid main since very late classic (feral/guardian since the spec split), with my goto alt enh shaman.

If either are radically changed to the point of unplayability when the patch hits, ill skip legion like i skipped CATA/MOP/WOD. might return when flying unlocks to see what its like, then stop again and wait for the next exp...

Yea i played it a little in wod..have my own 705 pally but in reality his gear is shit. Regardless i could see how rng would fuck with you.

It seems the changes appear to be positive for ret.

Mine was a holy alt. The other two is the lock and rogue with the latter getting near no love.

Is AP collection that slow n difficult? Can only max one artifact? ..surely that cant be what they stick to.

So who's been on since the prepatch? Haven't been able to get the time to get on. Had a stack of shit i was supposed to sell prior to launch. But didnt have the time. Now I've got a few hundred follower upgrades that are worthless (sale value)

Yeah i jumped on soon after servers came up, to see what unlocked on the transmorg from completed quests, some nice surprizes

didnt do kazz or bosses


every one of my characters has empty spell bars + no talents, so spent a while putting them back in. some characters, i have no idea wtf is going on, will need to work out spells and rotations on a target dummy.

had a heart attack when i logged into my warrior, i had 2x ilvl655 axes equipped instead of my epic 705 ilvl swords..... was a tense couple of moments, but found them in my bags.... *thanks blizz*

my hunter had a 655 blue polearm equipped (was survival, now Marks), found my previous 705 gun in bags, oh and get this, if you dont take lone wolf talent as marks, can you still summon and play with a pet!

bug?oversight?intended? when they announced only BM was keeping pet, with survival going melee, and marks solo hunter, i thought they where shooting every hunter main in the foot, and trying to force them to quit the game, just didn't believe the reasoning behind it (going back to the core fantasy for class specs). Honestly havent met a single hunter main who actually likes BM...

I still maintain the dev's are trying to kill off the game, by pissing off the players to the point where they quit and dont come back with class/spec and game changes. when they get to a certain point, the bean counters will give the go ahead to kill it. and they can transition to a fresh project, instead of a 12yo one.

So the update is interesting. I'm not too fussed on 'nerfs' etc.

I did see a couple of the legendary weapons linked. 895 ilvl is kinda impressive.


Also noticed, when exiting, it's been crashing...

Game feels really weird. I do kind of think the same as above, wondering if Blizzard is intentionally trying to kill off the game.

I did not manage to get an alpha or beta invite so it is all new.

Like: Warrior Fury spec, Priest Shadow, Warlock Demo, Gnome Hunter, Shaman..

Dislike: Priest DisciplineI just cant work it out), Pally Prot, Warrior Arms.

Fury Warrior is excellent fun. Quick, somewhat straight forward and strong. Cant wait to get the artifacts. I have scrub Tenaan gear, with an overall ilev of about 685 or so and it is destroying Draenor heroics.... No big deal, but a very nice change.

I quite like the new talent system as a whole.

Roll yourself a female Gnome Hunter and have a look at the facial expressions when they are attacking. Absolutely brilliant detail. Very amusing.

Holy butflarks - what have they done to Ele shamans. Totems, the core of the class - can only cast 2, one on a 5 minute cooldown, the other replacing a spell, & needs %50 maelstrom before you can even cast it (and I could only get 2 spells to cast Malestrom - a new mechanic that is a DISENABLE, not ENABLING mechanic.
4 heals and your OOM, fire elemental is bugged and doesn't auto attack.
My main (Mouselet, QuelDorei) turned from a PvE powerhouse into a weak glass cannon. Got so fed up I stripped Mouse, entombed him in the truly secret location on Azuremyst Isle (haven't seen it documented anyware hehe) to wait out legion. I've now goosed up my frost mage to 100 (Schpad÷inkle, QuelDorei) whom I hadn't played since cata and made him my main. That class at least seems relatively unmolested, and even with inferior gear and zero idea what I was doing still easily outclassed Mouselet.


Don't know whether to be angry, or sad.

It will be interesting to see how bad the queues are on the 30th August? Usually Frostmourne gets hammered
