Dev Q&A – Oct 11, 2018
Let’s be reminded every time that we watch the Dev Q&A from the WoW guys that they are not professional speakers. With only an hour, there should be a sense of urgency that is lacking. Josh Allen explaining each question to Ion as if he could not understand it is frustrating. So are trips to time’s past in the game.
In a nutshell: everything will be great in 8.1.
When is 8.1? We don’t know. It is going on the PTR. Some guess January which means months in our current state of play. But, things will be awesome. Trust, my friends.
Azerite gear is going through changes, as it should. Of interest is that, in 8.1, we’ll see a spec specific trait on the new outer ring. That sounds pretty good to me.
Tanks and Healing classes will be looked at. We are reminded that all healing is not about Healing Per Second numbers, silly players! And tanks should not complain unless they are not good tanks who see the entire playing field; tanks are generals of our army — who cares about class differences? (just a little sarcastic, apologies)
And then the usual stuff; pvp things and rep things and alt things and realm sharding things. Yes, they are aware and are working on it.
Oh; and Blizzcon, we are promised, with be huge!
I’m glad they do these things. We can feel like we are being listened to with our concerns. It is fun to watch with a ham and cheese sandwich.
