What’s Up In WoW
The observation from my post in Dalaran is that players are settling down. The big push for our mains continues to a point but there is plenty of other stuff too.
I don’t think that there is a collective “step back” where people are rejecting the game and playing D3 or Overwatch, it is more of a reset of sorts.
For example, my Guild Master and a friend began leveling warlocks. They are doing it for fun and to try out the class. I like how one goes about it these days; hexweave bags, 1000 gold, the two heirloom flight point toys and a portal to New Dalaran — just to start! Last I heard, they were lost in Redridge.
Myself, I have Fierce Fliers done in the pet battle challenge/achievement run. Sneaking by those bosses that drop AP so I can play at pet battling means, to me, that I’ve settled into Legion.
Players are starting to cherry-pick bosses on Argus, looking for the egg drops (for mounts and pets) and also the specific toys. I’ll say it again, I really wish I could look at collected and uncollected on the Armory for toys.
The cycle of push then lull, over and over, seems to be the game in Legion.
Find a project, take some screenshots, go have some fun.
