“Blushing is the color of virtue.”
Lost in Legion
Bloggers, I love you. Same with Podcasters. Seeing shared experiences and frustrations below the strata of the Elite in the World of Warcraft is grounding and re-assuring. I’d even say that this is crucial to my enjoyable playing experience.
A Good Book Has One Plot raises some questions that I find worthy of answers, though I can not answer them.
Which leads me to think …
Am I totally wrong to think that the Emerald Nightmare is corruption from the Old Gods that started long before the current invasion of the Legion? It seems that our own positive Wild Gods have been corrupted like our besties in Ulduar; Thorim and Freya etc. I see tentacles when fighting Xavius, I don’t see fiery demons.
And, in the next raid, Nighthold; aren’t we dealing with Gul’dan — the asshole from the last expansion? Cleaning up Azeroth, so to speak. This will be patch 7.2.
So, if 7.3, way down the line, when we take the fight to another planet really the beginning of Legion? This must be when we see Wrathion with his “vision of many planets beyond Azeroth” hinted back in Pandaria.
Are we now simply cleaning up a messy planet and not dealing with the Invasion yet?
In High Mountain we are resolving some old tribal problems to get them to all work together against the invasion, for example. We are feeding junkies in Suramar with a long back-story of isolation. On and on, we don’t seem to be fighting the Legion.
We need a “the story as we know it” recap.
The invasions with the portals opening introduced us to the Broken Isles which seem to have been moving along for quite a while. We do see some demonic portals in a few quest lines, which we close.
We need to resolve Sylvanas and Genn Graymane so we don’t have a civil war, we need to resolve Jaina, Anduin needs to make a postive impact as the leader of the Alliance and, finally, Wrathion needs to show up — but that all looks to be 7.3. Could this expansion be a three year expansion?
7.0, 7.1, 7.1.5, 7.2 are all patches to clean up our past stuff and to help unite the clans to fight the Legion. I’m sure I have the sequence awry but; no wonder players are confused as to what are we doing in the game right now — we are not fighting the Legion; the namesake of this expansion.
Patch 7.2 must also be the Tomb of Sargeras raid; somewhere in there.
All that being said: I’m having a great time! I love raiding and am lucky enough to be with a team that plays regular.
