Key Ring in Classic?

Sounds awesome

Interesting that they mention patches, instead of phases. What will there be to patch that isn’t in a phase? Very curious to see how patching and phases differ or if they are the same thing.


There will be a lot of bugs to fix post-launch.

Expect everything above level 40 to still be essentially an open Beta.


Any reason for just not throwing it in there in launch? the key ring is pure QOL, it just feels like a weird decision NOT to have it on launch.

They used the modern client which removed the keyring some time ago, and now the current programmers can’t just add it back like flipping on a light switch, they have to go back to the reference client and learn how to do it :stuck_out_tongue:


Yay! Gimme back mah keyring!

Not trying to be a downer, but man it really seems like they rushed the release. Not even putting that on the devs. Probably some Activision suit’s decision.


You can’t have your cake and eat it too. There are hordes of people screaming for classic to be released as soon as possible. Those people are more than happy to wait for minor stuff to be added in later, if it means they get their game sooner.


I think it was a dedicated player base decision. There is way too much hype, which leads to way too much demand, which leads to way too much pressure. If they had kept the information under wraps until it was time to release, they would have a fully functional product.

That’s how it was until the keyring was added like 5-6 patches in.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Good question, how could I forget that.

Green has appeared. Dun dun dun.

I might even be one of those people. I’m just saying…clearly they won’t have all the features implemented by launch. But who knows who made the call for the release date. Maybe the devs thought they could have it ready by August 26th, and hit unexpected roadblocks. I think it was just a decision handed down by Puppet Brack…I mean President Brack.

In any event, this particular issue is hardly game-breaking…in the short-term. But since it’s being added in the first patch (whenever that is) I don’t see it as a problem. But that said, I think it’s a further testament to ‘release when it’s ready’ isn’t really a Blizzard mantra anymore.

I know, I know, “no changes”, but imagine if they expanded the king ring to hold the UBRS Seal of Ascension, Drakefire Amulet to enter Ony’s layer, Onyxia Hide Cloak for fighting Nefarion, and maybe the Ahn’Qiraj bug mounts. And my Diablo pet :wink:

Bag space is super super tight in Classic even if you have full 18 slot bags in your bank and character.

Know that you’re loved my friend.


So, Key Ring’s are content :slight_smile:

1.1.1 came out ten days after release with multiple bug fixes and additional features.

1.2.2 came out three weeks after 1.2 and included multiple bug fixes.

Almost every major patch that Blizzard released, had a smaller patch following it with bug fixes. I mean, look at the patch notes for BC.

Even so you have the mailbox and a minimum of one bank alt. Five if you’re not playing both factions and only use five primary classes.

wait what why would it not be available at launch
