So Blizzard took a lot of things that people had been asking for and threw it all at us in one announcement.
- No more orcs? check
- South Seas? check
- Burning legion? check
- Emerald dream? check
- Reworked PvP that can be balanced without affecting PvE? check
- Azshara? check
- Garrison-style common building that is NOT instanced? check
The only things missing are true player housing, naval combat, and trolls.
legendary artifact weapons are a neat idea. However, someone brought up a good point about those. These weapons are the pinnacle of their type. There is no greater hammer than Doomhammer, no greater sword than Frostmourne, etc… What does that leave for weapons in the next expansion?
In the preview they didn’t show the rogue weapons. If Illidan wasn’t showing up in the expansion, I would have assumed it would be his warglaives. With him making an appearance, and Garona as a follower in our garrison, I’m not sure what else rogues might get. Van Cleef’s weapons? Valeera Sanguinar? Moroes?
Since I’m still enjoying the game, I don’t need to be convinced to come back. I am excited that they are still trying to improve the game. I just hope that the expansion brings back some of my friends that have unsubscribed.
