I’ve only read the review of the presentation, and it all sounds grand on paper :)
It’s the prime of gnome content we were lacking for a long time. Surely BfA introduced them during war campaign like we couldn’t possibly hope, but this pushes the boundaries to the next level. A sandbox construction site – what could have been better?
The new dungeon I will see in heroic (read: queued) version, or in retrospective like I did with Karazhan in Legion.
I think it’s safe to say that mechagnomes will be the allied race counterpart to gnomes, so make sure you earn Exalted if you want to roll one :)
Still split into two factions, we will finally fight the common foe. The Horde will befriend gilbins, sea giants and makrura, while the Alliance meets some Ankuran race.
I’m not a fan of ‘companion’ idea, it sucked ever since Draenor. The peak of my interest was gaining exalted for all WoD companions, and this is it. I never assigned any of them to mess along in Legion. This time there is some story involved, so I may run with them for a while. We’ll see how it plays out.
It’s gonna be a boss range of naga-naga-naga in all shapes, with a random sea monster in between. But you know what? There will be Lady Priscilla Ashvane as a boss! Hold me – I need to see this. Will Blizzard push it far enough to turn her into Little Mermaid’s Ursula – all mutated and with octopus tentacles? What does it mean lorewise, as she’s currently Sylvanas’ ally? Most intrigued!
Heart of Azeroth
Needless to say, any change here is most welcome. Personally I crave for its visualization, and Blizzard seems to acknowledge that. Basically we put it in a neck slot and forgot about it – we need a certain panel like with artifact weapons.
All zones, yay: including Nazjatar and Mechagon. The Battle for Azeroth flight requirements are most simple:
- Pathfinder 1
- Explore Nazjatar and Mechagon
- Earn Revered with Mechagon/Nazjatar factions
A couple of weeks of lazy gameplay, and we’re there. Bonus: we will get a mechanical parrot mount!
The story makes baby steps so far – we need the revolution within the Horde, period. Asap.
Gnome Legacy Armor
More gnome content!
I will need to test the new mode – if it’s queued.
Kamalia has a point: Barding surprisingly feels like the best choice nowadays. It doesn’t bother me to save a slot for water strider on my bars, and it will totally feel weird to ride across the seas on a manasaber, a horse or a ram. Falling off the cliffs is not vital as long as we get flights. Maybe next expansion?
Excited. I hope we will get the sandbox this expansion truly deserves.
