From a intergalactic war to...  new quillboar models.  Space filler for voidlord expac, IMO.

Actually, I still believe N'zoth has a presence here. But it's been long awaited since an actual Horde vs. Alliance expansion!

It is set on islands. Sometime during the conflict, naga will emerge (think of pandaria and the show up of Sha). Bam! N'zoth stuff coming right after and we've got ourselves a story - a story they are not telling right now cuz they'd spoil themselves the ending of Legion.

 

I hope so

Literally no1 gives a shit about pvp (besides the 2-3% of the players. Even crossfaction raiding (which would make storywise no sense) would be more useful.

It's not hard to figure out what the story of the next expansion will be in the broad since. Horde and Alliance fighting for control of the new islands and for Azeroth itself, At some point we figure out that the old gods are influencing the fighting between both sides and horde and alliance will have to team up yet again to stop the old gods from gaining control over the titan Azeroth.

I'm just facepalming about more trolls. How many Zul'recyles are there? We've had dungeons and raids which have been brought back with random graphic tweaks to be run again. We've had several run ins on the various continents with the troll empire remnants. Hemet Nesingwary couldn't be prouder of all the spirit animals we've killed over the last decade.

It's a worn out concept. It doesn't fit thematically anymore either, how are hut-dwelling jungle savages a credible power compared to Draneii spaceships, Illdari spaceships, Ebon Hand death metal fortress, the various spike-techs of the orc and goblins including air fleets and such, etc.

Feels like an excuse to re-use art assets. We already see the "giant troll berserker" in the one picture. Are we going to see a -third- version of Zin'rokh? Or kill another giant snake god? Maybe hear someone crying about hoodoo, that would be a novel and not tired thing.

I have a few questions if you don't mind:
Are artifact weapons and all the grinding done in Legion going to impact and transition into BfA or can I just do a do-over ? I havem't been playing and thought it was kinda pointless when in the near future a new expansion comes out, so could I basically just beginn again or do I need to grind in Legion still ?

 

Am I going to be able to start questing in the new Zones with getting Level 110 immediately or will I have to do something in Legion first ?

 

And at last, when will the soonest be, Icy-veins can predict the probably most potent classes in the new expansion ?

 

Thanks and I hope it is not too much of a bother.

Blizzard has traditionally always allowed massive catch-up mechanisms between expansion transitions. The first quests in the new XPacs so far always were on-par or even better in rewards than even the highest tier raids of the previous xpac.

 

This means that, if you're fully mythic-raid geared, you're likely only be using those for the first few hours into the new xpac. Players that reached level 120 will have far outgeared your level 110 uber geared character, no matter what. So at best you can use your 110 gear for the first two levels or so.

 

As for the artifact, that is new, and seeing these new other upgrade mechanics, I'd say it is likely that either everyone will start with the same artifact power (i.e. "maxed out" with 110 traits) and leveling it further to 120 with new traits for everyone, or just removed entirely.

Grinding in Legion to prepare for the new xpac will provide you almost no advantage other than the first few levels (110 until ~113). Let's just say that a person starting with green gear at 110 leveling to 113 in just a few hours will give them the same gear as you started with at 110 with your raid gear.

Am I going to be able to start questing in the new Zones with getting Level 110 immediately or will I have to do something in Legion first ?

So far you never needed to do anything in the old xpacs before you can enter new xpacs. All you need is the level requirement, and then you will get a message when you are in dalaran or your main city (Orgrimmar or Stormwind) telling you to go speak with Sylvanas/Anduin (Or another NPC that breadcrumbs you to that xpac)

1 hour ago, TheKaiser said:

And at last, when will the soonest be, Icy-veins can predict the probably most potent classes in the new expansion ?

The beta before the xpac goes live will likely be the best time to estimate which classes will be better than others, but FOTM is really just that, it can change from one moment to the other. Rather, you should probably look what playstyle you'll like the most (This will be overhauled like always), and you either do that in the PTR when it goes on the PTR or the XPac pre-patch (Usually a month or so before the xpac goes live)

 

 

The best preparation you can make for this xpac, assessing by your questions, is to level certain classes that you like to 110 before it goes live. So if you like casters, level warlock, priest, mage, shaman to 110, or if you rather go by style (healers for example) then level those. That's the only realistic preparation you can do for now. You don't need to deck them out in top tier epics (Because that's explained further above)

We're getting rid of our Artifact weapons, but some elements will be transitioned over to Heart of Azeroth. You can find more information about the new Artifact here. As opposed to Artifact Power grind in Legion, we're going to collect Azerite to empower the Heart of Azeroth. As it gains levels, you unlock traits (different circles).

Both factions will level up in their respective new zones. Scaling works similar to Legion, so it's entirely up to you. Each of the new zones consist of 3 subzones.

It's hard to jump into conclusions right now; the alpha has not started yet.

How can people already bitch about what's going to be in the x-pac when they've only seen a trailer and an hour of conference ?

They described some mechanics, they told us the starting story, but what if they weren't fucking telling us the whole content of the x-pac ?

Maybe it looks like the xpac is not complete because it fucking isn't, that's why this 28/11 we're not going on kul'tiras yet.

And also, we fight because it's been since 5 xpacs that shit's going on between the horde and the alliance, it's a wonder how an all-out war hasn't exploded yet. Because yes, at the start of the xpac right here, there is literally nothing else to do than fight each other.

While levelling, Zandalar will be the only available zone for Horde, and Kul'tiras for the Alliance. As soon as you hit 120, they both open up, so eventually you will be able to experience all the zones.

I do agree with your point. From someone who bought the virtual ticket and watched some relatively in-depth videos, I personally believe it has some major potential.

Looking back to WoD, the reason that expansion was a failure was almost entirely due to an extreme lack of content, and, everyone's least favourite feature ever, garrisons. Legion didn't have that. It certainly had it's flaws but it was actually quite a success. I've seen many returning players come back and like what they've seen for the first time in years. It's undeniable that many of the successes of Legion will be carried over to BfA. It's also undeniable that many of the failures will scrapped completely. 

For the war part, there was a lot in Legion leading up to this (Broken Shore). And it looks like more is on it's way. And all we can do is wait and see how they make it work.

IMO, this is very likely, and probably the most interesting approach for Blizzard to take late in the expansion. Old Gods strive when they can turn people against each other. They weaken their enemies indirectly through creating conflict, only to show themselves later on to finish the job. By the time we see N'Zoth, we should have faced many casualties from our war. Or maybe N'Zoth didn't create any conflict. Maybe he was just waiting to see when a full out war would erupt so he could take advantage of it. This all seems extremely interesting, and I personally really would love to see something like that happen. If that is the case, the occurrence of a Void expansion after BfA would be pretty likely.

      Everything you need to know about Legendary items after Antorus opens next week!
      Antorus, the Burning Throne raid opens next week and Legendary items can be once again upgraded up to item level 1,000.
      The maximum item level of Legendary items in Legion is 1,000. "A Titanic Effort" is a new quest that must be completed in order to receive Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a single Legendary item. The objective is to collect 50 Wakening Essences.
      The reaction's intensity is accelerating by the day. We may win the fight against the Legion only to lose something very dear to us. Is this a portent of some greater upheaval to come? What fate awaits our world, <name>? I will seek answers at my forge, as I have done all my life. Your answers, I suspect, lie elsewhere.
      Note that the quest needs to be repeated for each Legendary item upgrade.
      Waking Essences
      Where to get them?
      Weekly Order Hall Cache grants 20 Wakening Essences. Emissary bags drop Wakening Essences. It's best not to complete any emissaries on Sunday / Monday in US (Monday / Tuesday in EU) so that you have all three up after next week's maintenance to maximize the gain of Wakening Essences from world quests. Antorus bosses drop Wakening Essences even on LFR difficulty. First Random Heroic Dungeon of the day grants 5 Wakening Essences. Wakening Essences can be obtained from weekly PvP quests (2v2, 3v3, 10v10), but the amount is TBD. Once you loot Cursed Shard, you get 10 Wakening Essences. "The Cursed Shard" can only be completed once. New Legendary Items
      Two new Legendary items will be available after Antorus opens.
      Insignia of the Grand Army is rewarded from "The Death of a Titan" quest. The objective is to kill Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher. Unlike other Legendary items, this one is guaranteed. It empowers Netherlight Crucible traits by 50%.
      Light Powers: Infusion of Light, Light's Embrace, Light Speed, Refractive Shell, Secure in the Light, Shocklight. Shadow Powers: Chaotic Darkness, Dark Sorrows , Master of Shadows, Murderous Intent, Shadowbind, Torment the Weak. Aman'Thul's Vision drops from Argus the Unmaker as personal loot. During the latest Q/A, Ion didn't want to reveal more information about the item. What's interesting is that the item ignores the Legion Legendary cap of 2. Maybe we'll see a phase similar to Kael'thas Legendaries, where all players can loot them.
      Item Effect Source Aman'Thul's Vision Approximately 1.4 procs per minute Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you 3,840 Speed, Avoidance, and Leech for 12 sec.

      Aman'Thul's Grandeur
      When empowered by the Pantheon, your Intellect is increased by 3,831 for 15 sec.
      Drops from Argus the Unmaker. The item is not listed in the standard Legendary loot tables. Insignia of the Grand Army Increase the effects of Light and Shadow powers granted by the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. The Death of a Titan (Quest) - Defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher. Crafted Legendary Items
      All Legendary items crafted after Antorus opens should have an item level of 1,000 by default.

      Everything you need to know about Legendary items in Patch 7.3.2.
      In Patch 7.3.2, Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. Blizzard also added Legendary tokens and a ring that empowers traits from the Netherlight Crucible.
      Upgrading Legendary Items
      In Patch 7.3.2 Legendary items can be upgraded to item level 1,000. The Cursed Shard quest is started by looting Cursed Shard. The item has a variety of sources. It can drop in LFR or you can get it by doing the first Random Heroic Dungeon of the day. Once you bring it to Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran, you will get 10 Wakening Essences. Collect 50 Wakening Essences to get Awoken Titan Essence and upgrade a Legendary item to 1,000.
      Sources
      The Kirin Tor emissary bag did not reward any essences on PTR, but this can be random and needs further confirmation. Maybe they can only be collected from Argus faction bags. Antorus bosses drop a random amount of essences. Garothi Worldbreaker dropped 4 in LFR.
      Source Amount Status Mythic Order Hall Cache (Once a week) 20 Wakening Essences Confirmed Antorus Bosses (Each boss) 4 Wakening Essences (LFR 1st Boss) Confirmed Emissary Bag (Complete 5 World Quests) ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA First Random Heroic Dungeon (Once a day) 5 Wakening Essences Confirmed Weekly PvP Quests (2v2, 3v3, 10v10)
      ? Wakening Essences Amount TBA Cursed Shard (The Cursed Shard quest / one-time-only) 10 Wakening Essences Confirmed New Legendary Items
      Two Legendary item will be added in Patch 7.3.2. The legendary ring will be available to players that defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher and the trinket is a drop from Argus the Unmaker. The ring's affix increases the effects of Light and Shadow powers from the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. You can find more information in our Netherlight Crucible guide.
      Light Powers: Infusion of Light, Light's Embrace, Light Speed, Refractive Shell, Secure in the Light, Shocklight. Shadow Powers: Chaotic Darkness, Dark Sorrows , Master of Shadows, Murderous Intent, Shadowbind, Torment the Weak. Recently, Blizzard updated one of the Path of the Titans trinkets (Aman'Thul's Vision) to item level 1,000 and now it is a Legendary item that does not count toward the 2 Legendary cap. Path of the Titans trinkets can be upgraded with Pantheon's Blessing up to item level 1,000, so we're not sure yet, if all trinkets will be of Legendary quality after upgrading them to the maximum item level. More information can be found here.
      Item Effect Source Aman'Thul's Vision Approximately 1.4 procs per minute Your spells and abilities have a chance to grant you 6,716 Speed, Avoidance, and Leech for 12 sec.

      Aman'Thul's Grandeur
      When empowered by the Pantheon, your Intellect is increased by 6,700 for 15 sec.
      Drops from Argus the Unmaker. The item is not listed in the standard Legendary loot tables. Insignia of the Grand Army Increase the effects of Light and Shadow powers granted by the Netherlight Crucible by 50%. The Death of a Titan (Quest) - Defeat Argus the Unmaker on Normal difficulty or higher. Legendary Tokens
      Patch 7.3.2 adds new Legendary tokens to help keep gameplay on your main rewarding. Legendary tokens will start dropping when you collect ALL Legendary items on your class, in other words, on your main. Collecting ALL Legendary items designated for a single specialization won't suffice. Legendary tokens are BoA, so they can be sent to your alts (even when they are on a different realm). Use them to discover a random Legendary item.

      You can start collecting Wakening Essences right away when Antorus opens. You don't need to loot Cursed Shard or accept any quests first. All Legendary items that drop after Antorus opens will have item level 1,000. All crafted Legendary items will be of item level 1,000 by default when Antorus opens. Awoken Titan Essence is used to upgrade a single Legendary item to item level 1,000. You need to collect more Wakening Essences in order to upgrade additional Legendary items. Legendary tokens won't drop unless you collect ALL legendary items on your class. Blizzard mentioned in the latest Q/A that the team is closely monitoring the drop rate of Legendary items. Two legendaries are a standard for raiding, so they may increase the drop rate of the first few Legendary items on a character. At the moment, Blizzard has no plans to increase the Legendary item cap to 3. If you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments.

      Redditor Vorsa believes to have found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison in Battle for Azeroth by studying the maps!
      It's kind of an open secret that there will be moderate to heavy Old God involvement in the plot of Battle for Azeroth, potentially even later being revealed as the spark for the renewed Alliance/Horde animosity. N'Zoth and the Void Lords were expected to be the next expansion after Legion for quite a while, but with BfA it seems like we're either getting a mixed bag with PvP focus and Old Gods, or, which I think is more likely, BfA will be the bridge expansion between us fighting the Legion and then full on fighting the Void Lords in the next one.
      However, redditor Vorsa has delved into some old maps and thinks he found the potential location of N'Zoth's prison/Ny'alotha on the Battle for Azeroth map. It makes perfect sense if we'll be getting to see the old god/his city in BfA, as it's positioned smack down in the middle between Zandalar and Kul Tiras:

      So, is Ny'lotha going to be BfA's Argus type final patch? Is it going to bridge over into a full-on Old God/Void Lord expansion or will be dealing with N'Zoth himself directly in BfA? Will the whole Horde/Alliance scuffle turn out to be a complete Old God manipulation?
      What do you guys think?

      In order to improve the AoE performance of Shadow Priests in short duration multitarget situations, changes are planned for the class with next week's maintenance.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the next weekly maintenance, we'll be shifting around some of Shadow Priests' damage sources with the goal of improving their AOE damage performance in short-duration multitarget situations - namely dungeon trash packs.

      The nature and lifetime of dungeon trash packs makes it hard for Shadow Priests to ramp up to their full damage potential as part of their rotation. These changes should improve that situation, with a mostly neutral effect for overall performance in longer-duration raid fights.  Void Eruption No longer deals a separate damage event for each of your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch on each target. Instead, deals a single damage event to all targets that have EITHER your Shadow Word: Pain or Vampiric Touch. Void Eruption damage increased by 700% Shadow Crash Cooldown reduced to 20 sec. (down from 30 sec) Insanity generation increased to 20. (up from 15) Missile speed increased by 60%. Mind Sear (Passive) Damage increased by 50%. Heart of the Void (Legendary) Increases Void Eruption’s damage by 75% (down from 300%) and heals you for 25% (down from 40%) of the damage done. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff. The overall effect is mostly neutral. Shadow Word: Pain/Vampiric Touch Damage reduced by 4%. Developers Note: This is compensation for the Void Eruption buff in extended fights.

      World of Warcraft is currently on discount and redditor Gankeros pointed out an interesting fact; a level 100 boost costs just $25 and that's not the only thing!
      Level 100 Boost for $25
      Up to 8 World of Warcraft licenses can be attached to a single Battle.net account. The best thing is that the level 100 boost is account-wide, so after you activate the secondary game license, you can use the level 100 boost on your main (primary) license.
      Go to Account Management and under "Game Accounts", navigate to World of Warcraft and select the "Play for free" option to create a new World of Warcraft license. You should be then offered a WoW bundle for $25 / 25 EUR.
      Other Benefits of 2 World of Warcraft Accounts
      The standard Battle Chest comes with 30 days of game time and Black Friday is the ideal time to buy another WoW copy in case you've ever wanted to try out multiboxing. ISBoxer should be your go-to multiboxing software for World of Warcraft. They even offer a trial and it's really easy to set up. Don't forget to recruit yourself before doing any of this!
      If you don't need Legion, it's still good to least buy the Battle Chest for gold making. The first account is obviously your main and the second can be used for sniping. It gets even better if you have two monitors and you log in simultaneously on both accounts. Sniping is well worth it and the account will pay for itself in the long run. What exactly is sniping? The process of constantly checking the last page of the Auction House for cheap deals using preset filters. The main issue with a single license is that you can't be logged in on two characters at the same time. With two accounts, you can have one constantly sniping the Auction House, while you're playing your main.
