wow Legion Release Date Revealed

8 posts in this topic

20200-legion-release-date-revealed.jpg

Save the date: August 30, 2016!

 

All we knew about Legion's release is that it was going to happen after the Warcraft movie (i.e. the beginning of June) and any date before or/on September 21st. Now we know that it's going to be released on August 30!

 

Blizzard Icon Blizzard Entertainment

Defenders of the Alliance and the Horde—a great and ancient enemy has set its sights on Azeroth once more, and soon the land will be consumed in a storm of fel fire. Starting on August 30, kingdoms will burn, heroes will fall, and the world will stand on the precipice of destruction with the launch of World of Warcraft: Legion!

All hellfire is about to break loose, so steel yourself for the return of the Burning Legion by pre-purchasing World of Warcraft: Legion digitally at www.wowlegion.com. Players who pre-purchase will receive an instant level-100 character boost, as well as unlock early access to the new Demon Hunter hero class prior to the expansion’s release.

Learn more about the sixth World of Warcraft expansion on our Legion site, and read the full press release.

Quite a few people are upset because the last content update before Legion happened 1 year and 2 months before the expansion's release. It's quite true that World of Warcraft is currently living one of its worst periods ever, with interest to the game being beyond minimal.

 

On the other hand, as someone who is in the Alpha, I can assure you that the game needs quite a lot of work at the moment. It's better to wait a bit and have everything at a perfect state once Legion is released. Moreover, Blizzard has never released any World of Warcraft title during the summer, which make sense since people (hopefully) have better things to do during this period. It's smart to have Legion released at the last day of summer. Unless you are a school or university student; then you are probably destined to skip class or miss an exam!

 

Do you think Legion is long overdue? Or you don't mind the wait?

Looking at where they are in development I would say this is a good time frame.  Of course I am super excited and want it all now... but I also understand that these things take work and a lot of testing.

TBH I feel like they should have left at least a small team on WoD fixes and tuning. From a pvp standpoint the game is a joke right now due to tuning and there are still the matter of demo locks/surv hunters being nigh unplayable in pve.

 

The buff wipe glitch and the action bar reset glitch are getting out of hand with no hope until legion and the fact holy priests get insta killed on kilrog by performing a certain fight mechanic has been around since august. Not to mention the slew of minor glitches (inspect glitch is getting old). I've bug reported all of these several months ago.

 

The game just feels like it was abandoned for overwatch/HoTS this year and they gave up on fixing it until legion.

I'd rather wait longer to have a well executed expansion than have the expansion earlier but with a lot of cut-out and rushed content. Am I satisfied with the release date? Yes,no, maybe? I think the release date is alright, from what I've seen on the current Alpha server they have quite a lot done not to mention that they don't show everything that is technically already done and/or close to finished.

I'm quite satisfied with the content I've seen of Legion so far.

Also I have no idea why I made such a long post but hey, I'm excited

I kind of figured this would be about the time they'd be releasing it, but it's really good to see them actually say it. :) I'm really excited for this one. From the outside (no alpha T^T) it sounds like it's shaping up to be something great. With the speed they're putting out updates to the alpha, I'm honestly not all that concerned that it is being "rushed." I mean, we all knew the September date was the worst case scenario and it's pretty normal for their expansions to release a month early. They've still got four months to finish and polish it up, which seems like plenty of time at the pace they've been going at, right?

They have been making small but frequent updates. So yeah, they still have time and they will obviously make it, even if they lower the pace a bit because of working during summer.

 

My estimation (and it's just an estimation) is that we might be seeing the Beta between mid May and mid June.

      Blizzard revealed Prestige rewards for the upcoming Legion PvP Season 4.

      Prestige 1: Pet: Alliance Enthusiast or Horde Fanatic Prestige 2: Artifact: New Appearance Prestige 3: Toy: Honorable Pennant Prestige 4: Mount: Prestigious Bronze Courser Prestige 5: Title: The Honorable Prestige 6: Artifact: New Color Prestige 7: Pet: Dutiful Squire or Dutiful Gruntling Prestige 8: Toy: Prestigious Pennant Prestige 9: Mount: Prestigious Ivory Courser Prestige 10: Title: The Prestigious Prestige 11 Artifact: New Color Prestige 12: Toy: Elite Pennant Prestige 13: Mount: Prestigious Azure Courser Prestige 14: Title: The Unrelenting

      Prestige 15: Artifact: New Color Prestige 16: Toy: Esteemed Pennant Prestige 17: Mount: Prestigious Forest Courser Prestige 18: Title: The Unstoppable Force So storm the Battlegrounds and Arenas, gladiators. Glory—and glorious plunder—await!

      Following Blizzard's announcement that Destiny 2 would be exclusively available via the Blizzard app, caused prices of WoW Tokens to reach an all-time high in both regions.
      The last time we witnessed WoW Token prices spiking was when Blizzard launched the WoW Token to Battle.net Balance exchange.
      Europe
      Token prices are slowly going down, but in Europe they spiked at 251,000 Gold for a single token.

      North America
      America didn't see such a dramatic increase. Just a little above 140K Gold for one token.

      To stay up to date with latest prices, don't forget to follow WoWTokenNA for North America or WoWTokenEU for Europe.
