I haven't played WoW since Patch 1.04, I'm assuming that was before BC I think.

In my super-lacking experience, having to hike about places is good, sounds like WoW is plagued by chronic consumerism/convenience these days, so they constantly have to go bigger and more ridiculous and such to keep people happy.?

My wife wants to dip into playing wow again, we both quit about 5 years ago and only have accounts with up to cataclysm, what is the process for updating to the latest expansion pack?

Do we have to buy them all, if so where the heck do you do that? I can't seem to find any vendors selling anything except the vanilla game, latest expansion and rarely the old battlechest.

If you can just get the latest expansion, do you miss any opportunity to check out that content?

Buy WoD and start playing. No need to buy old expansions anymore.

Blizzard Forum post confirmation.

I wish I could have skipped the last 5 years of WoW.

Less than a month till Blizzcon, but they haven't really got that many panels for WoW this year.

I'm really hoping they unveil a fair few more artifacts, as that system has me pretty hyped and which one I like will make the decision as to who I level first.

Demonhunters bore me, but could be fun.

I enjoyed MoP. WoD is boring as buggery, worst expansion yet imo (I prefer Cata).

Looks like zero fucks given about WoW right now. I can see why (focusing on new franchises/games to diversify) but right now I don't see any point in subbing to WoW for the next 10 months or so given I've already exhausted what content is available. Hell, I'm even a casual player now. Sucks to be a hardcore player right now.

I can see why they are no longer going to be reporting sub numbers, lol.

As someone who bought WoD because of how amazing it all sounded and was quite disappointed in the whole thing (and dropped my sub not that long after release), Legion would need to be damn amazing to get me interested, especially when they are asking me to fork out another $70 + Sub in order to play. I was really surprised with how long away it is though TBH, from what I have read, WoD is more than stale at this point for alot of people, I can't imagine how many people are going to leave (if only for a the short term) between now and next September (or there abouts), has anything at all been announced for the interim? WoD is more or less finished now isn't it?

WoD is done, there's a new PvP season inc and a minor patch but I think that's about it.

I dropped my sub a while back, I just came back to play casual thanks to the WoW token - even playing very casually I make the cost of a token each month so I've been running a gold-pay sub since the tokens came in. I don't even think I'll bother with that anymore.

Well fuck. They broke DK's.

This is fucking dumb. I don't hate the fury changes - Fury was fucked because the player had no control.

But DK's *always* had control... DK's just had a much more punishing "don't spend all your fucking shit right now" compared to other classes, but you were in control of that. You know *exactly* when a rune is coming - its on a fucking timer for christs sakes and you have like 3 different ways to get some in a crisis.

Its not similar to Fury in *any* way - Because you can't guarantee a crit - and everything about Fury is locked behind being able to crit. No crit, no fun.

I agree completely that in a post-prune world, how DK's somehow still had 5 resources to manage (4 if you run RC) was surprising - but to remove rune types is just dumb. And it won't solve the damned problem either - n00bs will still spend their shit way too fast, unnecessarily and they will still be rune starved and then will still die/do shit dps.

This video sums up their vision for DK's now i think

I don't mind saying I'm nothing but disappointed by wow these days. It seems like blizzard really has stopped trying. New xpac not due out till September 2016? Surely that's a joke?! If legion is anything like wod I'll struggle to stay subbed for more than a month as the game feels like a chore.

Is looking more and more like it's time to retire wow. Blizzard seems to have run out of new ideas and are in no rush to keep current players happy with regular content being added. Sad as I used to love playing WoW
