A) No.  He's not.  Theyve said trolls and KT were NOT coming with launch since almost immediately after expansion was announced.  If you didnt know you hadn't been paying attention.

B) youre unsubbed but 'have to play around with guys like him?'  I dont have the slightest clue what that could even mean.  

Un-subbed to wow and complaining (literally, just complaining) about it.  Its ok to NOT like it.  Its ok to voice that opinion, just like his is OK to counter it.  If you dont like it, dont play it.  

...and there goes their attempt at a 'cash grab.'  You just achieved victory over evil blizzard.  Raise your sword in defiance, you internet warrior you.

Not being a toxic asshole - just teasing a guy who navigated a blizzard site to visit a wow thread to let everyone know he quit wow. its ironic and weird. Were all adults and this is a forum site where users can post and comment. 

Regardless - sorry to hear you dont like the xpack. I love it and the vocal community who complain about every facet of this expansion drives me crazy. If you dont like it, then quit. If you have constrictive criticism to give, then provide it. No need to post about it constantly to let the world know how the new wow expansion doesnt fit you. 

Dont forget that WoW and literally every other game you play is made by a company whose ultimate goal is to make money. Advertising a discounted service  that compliments a feature that was just rolled out is just a smart business strategy, and literally has no impact on how you play the game (and you can buy it with WoW gold for probably 100k)

unsure if me disagreeing with you makes me a "toxic asshole" - but if it does, apologies.

Even though this guy got a point in not advertising quitting wow like you beat cancer. I can still see what the other guy means. It is something when you've been playing it for years on end only to see it run down corporate cash grabbing hands. Kind of makes it easier to stop playing it. 

Although I don't play WoW I still navigate here since there's other games besides WoW, like HoTS, Diablo 3 and Overwatch. So I can see keeping up to date on a game that is very much interesting to follow in case of 'it might get better for me' hope peeks up from the maybe grave of games. 

I still like the genre, the game lore, the fantasy of it. That's why I follow it.

Oh I wish I could grab that sword and raise it, but baby boy Anduin and little angry Sally Sylvanas just keep shouting at each other.

But I must give it to them, they got *filtered* done. All it took was a few demons and Daddy Varian to die.

I'm not even surprised... Although that one wasn't advertised, it's certainly not unexpected ("cough" Kul'tiran and aspecially Zandalari racials "cough").

From a corporate point of view Activision Blizzard are failing. Activision/Blizz's stock value has more or less been cut in half since last October, where shares were traded (on NASDAQ that is) for about USD 83. Current stock value of one share is about USD 43. So - again from a corporate point of view - they absolutely had/have to do something, because they are losing investors. IIRC someone already posted those thoughts in the cash only pig mount thread. That mount, the removal of certain items from the store as well as those paid services might be short term attempts to fix the current state (or to keep the stock from falling even further, although it seems, stock value stabilized at around USD 42/43), because they generate raw cash for blizz.

We might still praise Blizz for creating great games - in the past - and revel in those nostalgic memories but times change. I'm up for discussing the current state of Blizz's games as I seem to be not quite as negative some of you - I still love the entire WoW universe for example. In the end ThomasC got it quite right:

You're not going to make her WoW jealous by talking about how your new girlfriend game is so much better than she WoW is.

So weren't they talking about how Zandalari Racials were probably going to get nerfed not long ago?

Guess it would be after people pay to race change and suddenly the racials are found to be way too OP a few months down the line?    Gotta have that empirical evidence after all that a full heal (that can be combo'd with the newly available paladin class to be unstoppable!) and various Loa buffs to choose from actually beat +1% to random-*filtered* stats that other races have.    But hey, those race changers will definitely miss the bonus to herbalism right? 😛

They already did - well sort of. On PTR Regeneratin' used to heal 25% of max health every 1 sec for 4 seconds, was not interrupted by damage and had a short cooldown of 1 minute, 30 seconds. I guess even Blizz had to admit that was OP 😄

For Reference: Live state is 100% health over 6 seconds (17%/sec), interrupted by damage, cooldown of 2.5 minutes. Still quite the potential for bubble-shenanigans...

Yeah but they had talked about potentially needing even more nerfs after that, it was even reported on this site a couple weeks back.    Regeneratin is still op as hell for paladins, especially tanks with last stand (or in pvp in general)

And yet because the paladins with that one spec using the ability means it needs to be nerfed to the ground for other classes ?

Same with damn Belf and their arcane torrent to rid of zul minions or the same creep in Kings Rest. Its a niche thing for one spec. 

I'd rather have it unable to be used during bubble as a minor fix. Don't need to ruin it for all other classes.

Paladins just make it "auto OP".    If you're able to full heal through knowledge of boss timings or after say, using a polymorph and blinking away in pvp, it's still far stronger than any comparable racials.

      Goblins and Worgen will have their models updated in World of Warcraft's upcoming Patch 8.2.5. Blizzard also confirmed they're next in line for Heritage Armor!
      Their models haven't been updated since Cataclysm, which makes them the oldest models in the game right now. At last year's BlizzCon, Blizzard revealed a preview of new Goblin and Worgen models, which are slated for Patch 8.2.5.
      Note that this is a work in progress and the models we're going to see in 8.2.5 may be completely different.
      Goblins
      The new model makes Goblins look more neutral and not angry all the time. Blizzard has done a lot of work, improving their limbs, eyes, mouth, and the grin while casting looks really cool.


      Worgen
      Here we have new Worgen models. The male model looks fiercer and the female model no longer resembles a fox, but I still don't get it why the female model's using Human eyes. It looks way too cartoonish and doesn't make a whole lot of sense.


      Heritage Armor
      In Rise of Azshara, Gnomes and Tauren got their Heritage Armor and the good news is that both Goblins and Worgen are next in line for Heritage Armor with their model updates. If you main a Goblin or a Worgen, Patch 8.2.5 will be really good! Do you like the updated models?

      Void-Touched Emissaries (Beguiling affix) have been nerfed recently and Queen's Decree: Hide now debuffs players.
      The hardest-hitting handmaiden has been hotfixed and now debuffs players with Queen's Decree: Hide, instead of herself, which makes Beguiling much more forgiving and opens up new strategies. Players can now simply LoS her and wait for the debuff to expire. The change is included in today's hotfixes.
      Beguiling, the new Nazjatar-themed Season 3 affix, is active instead of Reaping since July 9th.
      (Source)
    • By Starym
      The hotfixes aren't stopping or getting much smaller, as we just got our 4th in 4 days. Today we have more Eternal Palace tweaks, the Beguiling affix nerf, Blingtrons get upgraded and more.
      July 12 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Blackwater Behemoth The Oxygen-Rich Membrane buff acquired before fighting Blackwater Behemoth now persists through death as intended. Some marine life necessary for the Blackwater Behemoth achievement Intro to Marine Biology were stubborn and did not want to be collected. They are now interactable! Queen Azshara Fixed a bug that sometimes caused players to get damaged by Arcane Burst through line of sight in Heroic difficulty. Fixed a bug that prevented players who jumped when Stay! was cast on them from abiding to the decree in Heroic difficulty. Operation: Mechagon K.U.-J.O. Venting Flames, Furnace Flames, and Noxious Stench now ignore line of sight caused by objects other than dropped Junk Cubes. Mythic Keystone Dungeons Affix: Beguiling Void Touched Emissary no longer gains a stacking Shadow damage dealt buff. Players hit by Queen's Decree: Hide now take a 12 second duration stacking Shadow damage taken debuff. The UI for Essences earned in Mythic Keystone Dungeons now state that the dungeon needs to be completed in time. Heroic Warfronts
      Fixed a bug where players would receive 340 item level gear; the Azerite reward still remains for end-of-match. Items
      Blingtron 7000 models have been upgraded to more reliably defeat their model 6000 counterparts. Oxidized Refuse Remover now deals 200% increased damage. Weapons imbued with Enchant Weapon - Naga Hide no longer proc off absorbed damage. Budding Deepcoral no longer prevents underwater swimming mounts from swimming quickly while in Nazjatar. Heart of Azeroth The Well of Existence (Essence) now floats near you while airborne on a flying mount and no longer interferes with having a Battle Pet active. The cost of the Rank 3 Essences available from the Rustbolt Quartermaster has been reduced to 15 Galvanic Oscillators (was 25 Galvanic Oscillators) for the first Essence. Subsequent Rank 3 Essences now cost 6 Galvanic Oscillators (was 15 Galvanic Oscillators). Player versus Player
      Arena Resolved an issue with The Robodrome's Zap spell which could target players who were not staying in the starting area after the Arena match began. Items Vision of Demise now shares a cooldown with other on-use trinkets. Quests
      "The Eternal Palace: We Can Make It Stronger... " no longer removes extra Eternal Ornaments. Abandoning and reaccepting “Pack Your Bags ” prevents players from collecting items necessary for the quest. Previous hotfixes.

      Blizzard have sent out three days of free game time, giving unsubbed players the chance to test out Rise of Azshara, the latest World of Warcraft content update.
      Players with inactive accounts were gifted three days of game time on July 9th and the gift can be claimed until July 28th from within the Battle.net app.
      We noticed this on an account which has been inactive since March 25th. We believe the account must stay inactive for an extended period of time to be eligible for the three days of game time.

      If you've been unsubscribed for a long time and would like to give Nazjtar and Mechagon a shot, check out your"Gifts tab. There do not seem to be any mails associated with the game time this time around. The account received game time, but no "come back" mail thus far.

      Blizzard earlier today clarified how Aqueous Reliquaries drop in The Eternal Palace raid and that there was a data error calculating their drop chance this week, so starting with next week's raid reset, the amounts will be fixed.
      Aqueous Reliquary is an item which drops in the new raid and is required for the new Essences. It seems you don't need complete both Normal and Heroic to maximize your drops. Let's assume you kill Queen Azshara and get X Aqueous Reliquaries on Normal, then, you kill her on Heroic in the same lockout and you'll receive Y Aqueous Reliquaries. If you, however skip Normal and go straight to Heroic, you'll get the total number of drops, meaning X+Y Aqueous Reliquaries. The same is probably going to apply to Mythic.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Can someone please confirm if the aqueous reliquary items drop from normal and heroic if you run both within the same week? Thanks!
      Yes, but you don’t have to do both to maximize your drops.
      If you kill Azshara on Normal, you should get some of the drops (x).
      If you then kill Azshara on Heroic in the same lockout, you should get some more of the drops (y).
      If you skip Normal and go straight to Heroic, you should get the total number of drops (x+y).
      Killing Azshara on Heroic, then killing Azshara on Normal will result in no drops of those items on the second kill.
      Having said that, we had a data error calculating Aqueous Reliquaries this week, and when we fix it, more will drop. To avoid impacting players who have already killed the bosses, we’re fixing it at the beginning of next week. Starting with next week’s raid reset, the amounts will be corrected.
