Join forces in a new public event—Dreamsurge, earn Forsaken and Night Elf Heritage Armor, undertake Heroic difficulty in the Dawn of the Infinite mega-dungeon—and more.
… Does anybody feel that things are a bit rushed?
Still a 10.1.X patch, so no, not really.
not i. bring on the new stuff!
In a way yes. It’s strange that all of their catch up mechanics are for extremely low ilvl/brand new players when you’d expect them to focus on retaining mid range players. How many new players are really coming back to wow? Most of the people who played at the beginning of dragonflight outlevel almost all of the catch up stuff anyway so it doesn’t really even benefit them.
Sooo… how about not making us wait an extra week arbitrarily for new customization? There’s no good reason it can’t just be available on the 5th with the rest of the patch, but I guess it was too optimistic to think that Blizzard ever actually cared about the players over their stupid metrics.
it’s not supposed to. it’s catch-up gear. it’s meant to get you caught up so you can do current content. the intended gameplay cycle isn’t “just keep doing catch-up content and unsubbing until the next catch-up patch”.
I wonder if I’ll even log in to see any of it. There’s really nothing new. The heritage armor is just a long-delayed promise which is akin to having never even done it.
There’s nothing in this that makes me want to play. Ah well.
That’s your take. Nothing in this patch is all that special.
Woohoo nice! Good speed of content release without invalidating gear efforts because there is content between seasons
new holiday stuuuffff !!
Yaaaaaay! chilibean is readyyyy
I like the part where they say, “Upon completion of the Eastern Kingdoms Cup, unrestricted flight including both flying modes will be enabled throughout the game.”
They’re making content for a population that just isn’t there though. The amount of people who would return mid expansion is extremely small and they usually come back for promotions anyway, not this.
hmm yeah that’s a good point. i’m sure at least a few people around here are pumped for the heroic megadungeon though!
Somewhat decent trolling attempt 2.5/10.
Why? Because we aren’t sitting through 9 months of no updates?
I’m looking forward to seeing the changes to Hallow’s End! I have the mount but it’s still my favorite holiday event.
Good one, you made me look again. hahaha
Apparently, the imp is still free to troll wow’s subscribers.
No lol, what do you want them to do release less content?
Same here!! Additionally, I love this whole time of year on WoW (Brewfest, Hallow’s End, and Pilgrim’s Bounty)
They could have given ilvl 418 to 421 as catch up gear or for casual right now. Giving out 408 is laughable at this point. My alt monk that I haven’t play in months did a few normal raid farm and is already at 420 lish. There is no reason not to give out better ilvl at this point.
Most people are either on break, stop playing and working on alts to try out. Why not make is easier to gear alts and let people have fun.
