Sure, there’s the new cosmetic vendor, but it’s the same mechanics + a cosmetic vendor and a weekly mission. Still doing the same thing over and over for Azerite.An Arathi re-skin that we’ll do once a month for free Heroic gear without working towards it. Remember that there’s no guarantee that the random item you’ll get will even help you. It’ll probably just grant 395 TF with a socket to an LFR player again. Oh, and half of the playerbase shouldn’t even bet on doing the instance right away. They’ll have to wait another few weeks.Re-skinned world quests that give you a currency for even more cosmetic rewards. Still world quests with no new open world gameplay styles or mechanics. Maybe the item you get from these will give you an upgrade, but considering this is a slot machine, it most likely won’t.A gated questline with like 10 minutes of content a week. Exciting.I’m not hating to hate. I don’t hate the game, nor do any of the players who are voicing their opinions. We’re concerned about the game we love and hate the direction it’s going in. 7.1 was amazing, and even though 8.1 > 6.1, the dislike ratio on the actual videos show that the community isn’t happy at all with the direction this game is taking.Courtesy of Genegerbread on the forums
Oh, that's me! It's true though xD
It was a great post. I'm just going to wait until the 22nd of Jan before I even log on.
thanks for the guide! once I do the new content, I'll be love leveling and getting more heritage armors!
I wish Blizzard would increase the rep gains from Legion World Quests. It's an unbelievably long grind to unlock allied races, when most WQs only give 75 rep per pop. Highmountain Tauren rep is extremely slow going. I actually halted leveling on this character just so I could keep making use of LFG for Neltharion's Lair without outlevling Legion. I know if I don't do it now, I will not likely go back after getting to 120 and do the rep grind later, so it's now or never. At least Nightfallen went quickly.
Seems to me, WOW is only interested in end gamers raiding and mythics. For those of us who enjoy the game in a more casual mode, we know that our professions are useless to us since the high end gear requires grinding mythic duns and raids. Professions are a joke. Too bad, I used to enjoy them.
Leveling & Alts, Classes changes are OK. The rest is garbage. Who really cares about new content that nobody liked the first time around (warfronts and islands). Givez uz da raidz!
For anyone complaining about "no raids til January" - This has happened with EVERY patch that has released at the holidays, over the last 3 expansions. Before that, they would just delay the patch entirely until after.They do not want to put out a new raid, right before they go off for the holidays for 2 weeks, with minimal staff present to maintain operations.Seriously, grow up/get over it, go play another game instead of complaining that this one isn't consuming your life. It shouldn't be consuming all your free time. It's also the holidays, go see friends and family. Be a person. This is not new, this was expected, and informed to us over a MONTH AGO, before even Blizzcon, that the raid would be after the holidays. Pay attention and have some memory retention...
"World and Questing Time to level from 1 to 110 has been reduced by approximately 25%. Legion World Quests for the Highmountain Tribe, Nightfallen, Army of the Light, and Argussian Reach now reward increased reputation."
So just out of curiosity, as it wasn't mentioned anywhere in the upcoming January release either, but weren't we supposed to get Pathfinder 2 so we could fly? Are those new storyline quests part of it, does anyone know? Thank you in advance.
