So, patch is tomorrow, and here’s the list of changes with my thoughts on them.
A Scaling World
Lore chapters within zones and scaling – couldn’t greet it more. I would finally be able to see the coolest ‘Rambo’ story in Redridge and what not – today you outgrow a zone halfway, if not less.
Been there, not interested. It was fun to run Molten Core during a holiday anniversary event, but until they make it available via group finder and with extra rewards, not my thing. Skipping this like I did with Black Temple.
Silithus: The Wound
Yes, please. I expect it to be a small and quick questline like we had in Draenor pre-patch in Blasted Lands, but I’m eager to receive this lore reward and go awe with the big sword after Argus kill tomorrow.
New Battleground: Seething Shore
Not interested – I’m not into PvP at all.
The thing is that you upgrade them for 300 whatsits (not 50 like now) and could also buy tokens for 1000 for a random legendary piece for your spec. Not interested in farming, although if I have enough for tokens, I would try to win some transmog options that I don’t have yet.
Mythic Keystone Dungeons
Couldn’t care less about dungeons. Stopped worrying about any Legion dungeons in Spring when I had a tourist run through Karazhan and Suramar dungeons.
Dungeons available to any player from level 20 – more mount drop chances. Also introducing more toys – I understand this is an attempt to give more reasons to run the outdated holiday errands, but frankly I think we don’t need more toys, and I also like to consider a holiday done. Not happy.
Not a fan of selfie camera, especially with those most awful emotion screenshots my twitter is swarming with. But they would deliver some filter quests along, which I’ll be running with interest.
Not available with the patch. Shame, as I was so eager to test the new leveling system with them :) By all means I’ll level every race of 6 for fun and achievement.
