Thanks man, was looking for a simple comparison. i don’t see why they wouldn’t keep it pretty similar. Also gives them plenty of time to figure out what they plan on doing for after Phase 6. Whither/Weither/Weather/Wheather (<-----FOR real I have no idea) it be BC or 1.13 :clap:


Does it specify when the Unarmored Mounts will be available for purchase?

What month will most of the population hit 60?

You know they won’t be in classic right?

Nice time line. I appreciate the effort you put into this post, with nice formatting and all. Very informative and easy to digest

I don’t think it takes this long again. Many of those things were being developed and had to be hard-wired into the client back then. Now, they are already there and Blizz just needs to flip a switch.

I also don’t see them taking 7-8 months to open BGs.


why not?

if they release too early they risk upsetting no-changers who thought they’d have more time because time between content was long in vanilla. and if they follow the schedule they get a bunch of extra months of subs from us


Might be worth considering that Blizzard stayed they will modify the release timeline based on people’s progression.

Assuming progress occurs 10% faster, maybe escalate your timeline 10%?

It hurts sometimes…i just wish we could have one. Can’t we just have ONE!!! :disappointed_relieved:

Hahaha! My sympathies. I have 5 friends called ‘Shaun’, and they have 4 different spellings between them. I had to add pictures to their profiles on my phone… I still get it wrong

If that is the case and AB will not drop be for July I think I will give up before then tbh

WSG/AV came out early and BWL as you can see is coming out 2 months earlier than the original timeline. I’d expect AB to come out a little ahead of phase 4 so probably in April/May.

Also consider BWL is like 6 months from name day. 6 month subscriptions expiring. So if you follow that formula, Phase 5 will be in August, and Naxx will Feb 2021.
