World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth

The prepatch hit yesterday, resulting in a lot of extra downtime. They've rolled back the new 'community features' until they can stabilize them.

Otherwise, the stat-squish, artifact-weapon nerf, major class/spec changes seem to be going pretty well. Usual "many addons broken, lots of LUA errors" stuff, but it seems tolerable to me.

Something I didn't see in the news regarding yesterday's pre-patch was that all level 110 characters have a gift in their order hall's weekly mythic+ chest.... enough wakening essences to buy a new legendary from the Dalaran blacksmith. And you get to pick which one you want (or pick a BoA legendary token to send to an alt!). Order hall missions that awarded artifact power now, instead, award Wakening Essence, so scooping up specific legendaries you want should be a whole lot easier now.

I really should get around to picking up BFA. I am on the fence on joining at the start but the one thind I did enjoy with WoD was being day one.

I started around Pandaria but I was still leveling my first character. I quit but came back just before WoD, then quit WoD and came back basically after Legion was over.

Lol, chatting with someone in b-tag chat, I just discovered that blizzard bleeps:

"hetero" (and heterosexual, and transexual)

but doesn't bleep: homo, queer, a/bi/homosexual, trans or dragqueen.

Strange. =D

Heads up for reputation grinding (if you didn't already hear), Magram and Gelkis can now get to exalted.

Did anyone start an SLU Community?

I suck at grouping with people on stuff because I get serious Tunnel Vision when I'm questing, but if we have a chat going and someone wants to do something, I do try to pay attention and join in.

If we haven't started something, let's do it!

I guess it would need to be a Blizzard Group, so that it can be cross-platform - so would allow for cross-faction in WoW. Or start one for each faction so as to make Community groups.

Oh what the heck, I'll give it a go. (I'm bored in WoW right now anyway, not much to do but wait for more content to drop)

I'll private message people on this thread with a join-up link, if anyone else wants to jump in, lemme know either here, warcraft or battle-net chat! =)

eta: Sending invites seems rather buggy at the moment, ugh.

The real reason is The Alliance is the enemy.

From what we've seen at this point, the real reason is she wants the Alliance to be the enemy. Anduin had no intention of doing anything at all to the Horde after the Legion was defeated and was only gathering up Azerite because he was worried it was too dangerous to leave laying around. No plots, no plans, just tidying up. I can understand Sylvanas having concerns about the future of that stockpile, but the whole thing with attacking Dark Shore, trying to kill Malfurion, and then burning the World Tree down is deliberate incitement to war when there might have been a time of peace.

So there is a mini event today. The Kiren Tor Pub Crawl. Start with the ghose at the entrance to your faction bar in Dalaraan.

That video is a let down after the one for Jaina.

Itís also a let down for the lore. Sylvanas was more interesting as a complex character and I donít think this leaves that in place. For her to say she was a fool suggests she regrets she didnít flee the battlefield, which is not her at all. This doesnít seem good for Forsaken lore either. Is Sylvanas going to just be another boss like Garrosh? At least he retained his complexity.

And from a lore POV, I donít see how Tauren druids could even stay in the Horde; all the recent ones are basically students of Malfurion.

Blah.

Iím just on a free account now, is there a way to join a community from there? I canít log in or patch but I still have Battle Net. Thanks.

I hope the lore turns around before I finally come back to the game.

Much like Canada and US relations. Geographic proximity.

Also, gotta keep those subscriptions up, yo.

Perhaps. That might be why the plot is as it is, but whether it succeeds is another matter.


I would rather have seen Vol'jin have a better story than he did.

Of the many different reasons I thought it might happen, my favorite was definitely "Teldrassil was an Inside Job! (Jaina did it, to whip up anti-Horde sentiments among the allies).

Bummed they didn't go that route.

Given that both Jaina and Sylvanas seem to be hopping on the short bus to crazy-town, I really really hope they don't pull another "Madness of the Warchief" stunt like they did with Garrosh. It's too soon.

OK, the hippogryph mount is nice, but the bat is much cooler.

I just wish the bat was -smaller- .. if I can't fly through a doorway on a mount as a goblin, it gets axed from the "Summon Random Favorite Mount" pool.

And, fwiw, here's me at the moment... all tricked out in magenta/purple, just like his beady little goblin eyes.

What options are there? Garrosh 2.0 or a cringey redemption arc?


Whatever happens, I don't see myself subscribing for the whole expansion and what game time I do sub for will be playing my alliance characters.

Since there are daily Darkshore quests to get appropriate gear, I've gone through the initial scenario now with my 3 110 heroes.

2 Horde and 1 Alliance.

Man, that last unwinable Alliance quest in Darnasus...

I wonder if there are plans to change the 'dead' portals to Darnassus from Dalaran, Stormshield, Exodar etc. I imagine 'dead' portals to UC will be the next problem.


No boat from Exodar or Stormwind... why not Stormwind to Exodar now (and Silvermoon to Orgrimmar)
