Yesterday was a GOOD DAY (TM) to be a Warcraft Fan.

There will those of you yesterday who frankly couldn’t be arsed to do all the work I did and break down the Dev Chat properly. For you? I’ve prepared this handy Visual Guide to cover the relevant highlights. Without further ado?

Beta Begins May 12th, 2pm PDT

Well, only if you get an invite. I’ll bet that you’ll see beta codes on ‘popular’ websites very soon, so don’t panic if you don’t have one yet. Just hang around in the right places and you’ll bound to just find one, lying about. Don’t try and bribe people though. That never ends well.

Put it away, Wayne ^^


 

Class Order Halls are *Not* Garrisons

YES I CAN FINALLY STOP THANK YOU

You’ll have to work for your loot in the next Expansion, people. No more ‘free’ Epics. Except I’m guessing some of those alts won’t be leaving your Warlords base as soon as Legion drops. Just try to stop gradually so you don’t go cold turkey, ‘kay?

Yes we KNOW you like Vanilla, STOP ASKING ^^

(However, this discussion did end up with the admission that Blizzard are looking to improve the 1-100 ‘traditional’ grind for those of you who can’t afford a boost. So that’s encouraging.)

We heard you like Mythic so here’s MORE MYTHIC

So, there’s no more Challenge Modes. Instead, we have Mythic + which is where you get a Keystone and you run a dungeon and then you can stick affixers in it and they give you more loot and…

TOO. MUCH. MATHS

On second thoughts, don’t worry about it. It’ll be great. Just turn up prepared, ‘kay?

MANY CINEMATICS COMING SOON (TM)

They’re just not in Beta. Because, you know,  IT TAKES A WHILE. There’s still lots of other stuff to do. You could mog your Artefact Weapon with a Pitchfork or throw your Demon Hunter off Highmountain Peak. It’s not like there’s NOTHING, right?

YEAH we forgot about LORE and STORY in Warlords

Yup, Ion Hazzikostas admitted they screwed that up. They’ve fixed it now, though. Anything is possible on the Broken Isles.

Well, maybe not everything Be sensible, guys?

Mostly, there’s going to be SPOILERS EVERYWHERE so if you don’t like that stuff, probably time to leave for a bit :D

I’ll see you people for the pre-expansion event. For everybody else? PARTY TIME :D

  1. Excellent summary! At least from my perspective, that’s all good news. The Class Hall mission system, in terms of fewer “champions” and I have to do something to assist them with their missions, just sounds like something I’ll be doing on 6-7 alts instead of on 23, as long as the rewards are worth it. But that’s definitely okay.

    Hopefully they don’t go too overboard with the cinematics in the name of story. That’s been one of my complaints on SWTOR is the current content isn’t much more than moving from one cinematic to the next killing a few mobs in between each one.
