The glyph system is being updated, so a lot of data is changing. Many of those effects will still be available. (WarcraftDevs)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

I don't, but I am always hesitant that when I say that, for fear players will somehow try to use it to argue for their own agenda.

Here are my reasons:

1) As a player, I needed a break. I had played WoW for nearly a decade without a break, with a lot of heavy raiding. I fully expect I will go back at some point.

2) As a developer, I needed a little distance. WoW was part of my DNA for many years. Jumping back into the game felt like cruising by the house of my ex all the time and asking her how her current BF was treating her, and maybe giving him some pointers on how to handle her. It just felt weird. It has been two years, so that has mostly dried up.

3) As a designer, I needed more broad exposure. When I played WoW, it was harder to find time to play other games. (Blizzard now has so many games, that they make it really hard to play non-Blizzard games too!) When I interviewed at Riot, I struggled with answering some questions because I hadn't played all of the games I should have. I vowed to keep more abreast of the industry and not make WoW (or LoL!) my only game.

    So that's probably going to be 6 artifact variations (not including colors) on release and I bet we'll get several more throughout the expansion.

    If anything, Legion is going to have far more variety in terms of player weapons compared to any expansion before.

    Also, it's good to see the Thunderfury model is confirmed as a rogue weapon and NOT a monk one.

    People thought it was going to be a Monk weapon? eh?

    There was clearly only two choices, Rogue & Warrior the main users of it back in the day, Considering that it has Agility it really points towards Rogue which is what they've gone with.

    Yay rogues got Thunderfury skin >! Also that is probably my favorite skin for the Sub artifact as well.

    The reasoning behind Rogue and Monk is based on the filename for the icons, skywall, which is used for Rogue and Monk artifacts. Warrior had already been eliminated as a choice based on that.

    who gives a F crap about wannabe late classes adopting reusable data. The thunder-fury look alike artifact was marked for warriors & rogues since the beginning; sadly rogues get the cherry this time, but no lame ass monk will claim right in this even for an icon name

    Edit !: In other news, is that a new way to hold weapons?

    Monks will hold 2H weapons like that.

    Totally agree with poll, on "Paladin" at top, "Hunter" at bottom.

    On Thunderfury? Still isn't confirmed for Rogue, that's just MMO-C file naming for their upload?

    Not that I bother with it either way, just Monk still seems *possible* given their Windwalker artifact being described with "Al'Akir poured unspeakable amounts of raw elemental fury into the handblades," which relates to Thunderfury in origin.

    EDIT: Guy 2 posts down is right, though, Druids have amazing forms.

    When I see a comment worded like this, it convinces me Blizzard made the right choice.

    I voted Druid, only cause of the changes to the feral and guardian forms, so BA.

    That monk weapon is a delight. I wish paladins had something similar. We're so focused on blades, when the fantasy we all grew to love from WC3 was all about massive hammers and so on.

    Why the fuck do rogues get an updated thunderfury? That was a god damn tank or fury warrior weapon. What is blizzard even thinking?
  1. Shadowslim's Avatar
    They are thinking that rogues need some love or they will never stop complaining about EVERYTHING !!!

    Jokes aside, I'm so happy right now, hope this is really the thing for rogues. I also think that they changed up assa and sub

    Have you seen most of the rogue artifacts compared to the warrior ones?
