A post on the World of Warcraft

It is Blizzcon Week

There are never enough ‘I love you’s.

It is Blizzcon Week

Rather than breaking down any information point by point, I will say that it is good to see that the design arc is in place. If 7.1 came out two months into Legion, is that any indication of the pacing? Could we really be flying in four months instead of ten months?

I watched the Opening Ceremony on Twitch. I have, of course, read Blizzard Watch, Wowhead and MMO Champs. And, I’m pleased to see the company doing so well. It seems that just 18 months ago, there was a lot of misery and the tolling of the death knell of WoW.

Over all, after reading the What’s Next for WoW panel notes; I really felt relaxed. There is content coming but, baby, we have time; plenty of time to do what we’d like.

The beginning of an expansion should be full of excitement and anxiety too. We are weak and don’t know our way. We don’t have that mental list of milestones to achieve and we don’t know what is “important” to the success of our character. Now, we are more settled in; feeling stronger and have a better awareness of tasks and goals.

Now that the Group Finder has divided Mythic from Mythic Plus as a category, I think it is time to put Mythic in the Cue like LFR and Heroic/Normal dungeons. Create a sure and solid divide of what Mythic Plus is supposed to be. This is the one glaring flaw in their design to funnel all “things” like professions, order hall, mission quests etc. through the Mythic dungeon experience. I can see it. You can see it. It must be done.
