Default World of Warcraft: Legion

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/legion/





A great burning shadow falls over Azeroth once more—World of Warcraft: Legion has been unveiled!

In this dire new chapter of the World of Warcraft saga, the great enemy of the Horde and the Alliance—the demonic Burning Legion—has returned. As destruction rains across Azeroth, its heroes must seek salvation among the ruins of the mythic Broken Isles, ancient seat of a lost night elf civilization—and site of the accursed Tomb of Sargeras, which now serves as a gateway to endless Legion worlds.

To combat the armies of the Legion, Azeroth’s heroes will need to achieve unprecedented heights of power, securing mighty Artifacts—class-specific, highly customizable weapons forged in the fires of lore. They’ll also join forces with unlikely allies in the form of an all-new hero class, the vengeful Demon Hunter, and unify champions of their cause at their class’s Order Hall. Legion also empowers players to boost one character to level 100, making it so anyone can join the battle against the Legion alongside their friends.

Legion also features a new PvP Honor system, a new level cap of 110, new Dungeons and Raids, and much more. Visit the new Legion website for screenshots, feature details, concept art, the announcement trailer, and more.

I stayed up and watched the reveal and a fair bit of the presentation, and to me I get the feeling they may have been working on this expansion before they started on WoD, it sounds like it's going to be quite epic, there's going to be story involving the Emerald Nightmare & Queen Az'Shara. Love the look of the artifact weapons & class halls.

All in all I'm hyped but trying not to get too worked up in case in turns out to be another piece of shit like WoD.

Im a bit torn on the Artifact weapons. I get the feeling, that you get the weapon at the start of the xpac, and it slowly grows/upgrades with you during the way to 110. The only issue i can see is that everyone has the same weapons throughout the whole expansion (bar the 3 different skins/colours for each artifact)

However its good that you can talent tree it like oldschool wow. Although there will eventually be cookie cutter builds that you need to use to be at the top tier of raiding/log percentiles, but theres still a bit of customization there available.

Better fucking not be. If i have to do another shipyard grind for the leg.....

Im guessing it wont be. You'll get the weapon early on in the xpac, level with it and choose your talent trees as well (id say some unlock while leveling, you unlock some from pvp etc)

More from the point of view that the Weapon is something you carry and use for the duration of the xpac that is upgraded over time via the Artifact system.


If you think there isn't going to be frustrating as fuck grindy bits peppered with RNG, well you haven't been paying attention.

As long as its not as heavy RNG as the shipyard, thats ok. I can deal with doing weekly clears for drops or w/e. But if i have to try and do some facebook click quests for a godamn map. Imma be pissed.

As someone with 3 rings.

The shipyard is fine. Literally fine. 2 of every boat and just flat out *ignore* the mod's. Don't waste time on anything but grinding them to epic. Send them out as best Master Plan can work out, and just don't worry about it.

Everyone who tried to "game" the shipyard in my guild, just felt gutted that they'd invested thousands of garrison resources into something that sank. No investment, no fucks given when it sinks. And you'll still clear it well before you get your 33 tomes.

If you want to know whats fucked - I watched a guildie strike out 6 bosses on his final tome - and have to wait till the following week. Another guildie got all 33 in 3 weeks for 12/13 clearing.

I think its stupid that they gated the leg behind the shipyard. I was prepared, so i had my map well before the tomes, but thats not the point. The point im trying to make is that they gated you into it, so you had to use the shipyard.

It doesnt even feel legendary, whats the point of making it legendary, if everyone gets it..

I have re-subbed recently and while i'm on a server heavily in favour for the other faction (barth), I walk around the AH/Bank at SW in prime time and I see maybe 3 people at a time? It really makes me feel, whats the point. They need to address this. While I like the idea of garrisons this is also hurting the game more than anything.

The xpac doesn't look terribly exciting, IMO lich king was really good and maybe cata was ok, but the others weren't good and this looks much the same. I think the game overall has gone downhill since vanilla.

How is this different to the PvP bit of the cloak in MoP? Or the rep grinds? not in the slightest.

Just because the shipyard was quite possibly the most hated aspect of the game outside of Ashran, doesn't mean its different. I'm sure some farmville guru still thinks garrisons are cool.

If you're a healer. its actually terrible, and merely a stat stick with another cooldown for the raid (the actual bubble on finish is useless).
If you're a tank - with the 100% buff to the Vers on use - its godlike, better than any shield wall in the game. But the hp sharing thing is pretty useless outside of "creative use of game mechanics".
If you're DPS - its mandatory, and just serves to piss off everyone with 3min c/d's vs those with 1 or 2 min c/d's. Also you have to scream at ranged who hit it, then waste the explosion at the end.

It is indeed awful. At least the cloak had itself + a relevant thing for each content patch.
