    Why would the expansion be out at the end of the year? Good god people how many times does it need to be said Blizzard is on a 18 month expansion development cycle now for it to finally sink in? 5.4 won't be until September at the EARLIEST which puts the expansion in spring of 2014. I honest to god don't get the problem in that. Are players going to actually start whining that we aren't getting a year of no content?

    ask that again when you wait for a year after 5.4 for the next exp

    I too think things are going too quickly, and don't mind the year wait between the last patch to the new new expansion. Of course my attention span is more than a gnat and can always find something to do in the game.

    If Blizzard were to implement something like that I would assume they would give players a reason to do it such as transmog items or pets or other vanity things.

    This is borderline trolling. Blizzard flat out said Siege of Org was the last raid of Mop. Please stop with the 5.6+ patch nonsense.

    You guys are thinking about this all the wrong way. If it is level scaling, then it wont be just for raids. It could be used to go to a zone where your friend is say a level 25 zone, and level with him while getting decent xp. Also it would allow people to do stuff like the scenarios from MoP, and dragonsoul lfr next xpac.

    Why is it too early? Are you joking? You want tier 14 to go on for nearly a year? Really? Why? I'm probably rather jaded but I wouldn't be surprised if I dug around in your post history to find you bitching Blizzard out for having raid patches last longer than 6 months. It's fine.

And I don't think it would be simple to remove mastery on all pre-85 raids as specs that stack mastery, like arcane mages, would be completely useless.

    If this is the new feature they plan to release I think it will be pointless because the old raids with the current class mechanics will never give the feeling that the game had in previous iterations. And at that point you might as well just solo it at 90.

    Also, saying this will be just as good as legacy realms is like saying megablocks are just as good as lego. No it fucking isn't.
    Because if Blizzard were to implement this they would start and stop with character scaling and call it a day. Right. Whatever.

    Exactly my thoughts. In my opinion, the problem WOW had was never the time between patches, it was always the time after the last patch until the new expansion.

    For the unannounced feature, my money is on some sort of scaling. Optional scaling for lower level instances.

    They've used low level battlegrounds and challenge modes as a test bed (for the function itself rather than peoples interests) and they think it'll give people more things to do. I... can't see it being useful at all though. So will be disappointed.

    Glad to see patches coming faster, but it's a little too fast for my guild :P

    Just stop. We haven't gotten a new daily since 5.2 and 5.3 has none. Just shut up already. You won. No more dailies.

    Sure, anyone having an opinion that doesn't match yours is clearly "throwing a hissy fit." Because there aren't a million reasons CRZ is awful, right?

    However, it is a option that can be toggled on your Portrait Menu, so that those interested in Mount Farming / Pet Farming / Solo Raiding can still do that, but those wishing to go back and experience to a degree what The Black Temple was like at level 70, then they can! No need for Legacy Servers, as we'll be able to go do the old raids as they were designed then, at the appropriate level and ilevel.
    This is definitely what the new feature is. I would bet all my gold on it. The only question is if we will be able to queue for it using an LFR type system, or if it will be only for premade groups like challange mode heroics.

    It's called power creep. A level 60 today is significantly more powerful than a level 60 from vanilla wearing the exact same gear.

    CRZ is fine. Get the fuck over it already. Oh and the only major outstanding bug with the feature will be fixed completely as of 5.3. I will be waiting with baited breath to find out what the new burning issue with CRZ will be when the last legitimate complaint is finally stamped out for good. The only thing left is the only thing Blizzard has flat out said they don't care about which is people in your mmo isn't a bug it isn't unintended and if it bothers you then you are playing the wrong game.

    My guess is next Expansion is March 2014. If 5.4 comes in September, that gives 6 months... a reasonable amount of time.

    Here's some bullet points from the interview:

    -There will probably be less new pets in 5.4 compared to other MoP patches.
    -The "Big Unannounced Feature" is releasing with 5.4.
    Looking on Blizzard's track record for this expansion, the big unannounced feature is extremely likely to have to do something either with Pokemon ("pets") or (Kung-Fu) Pandas or in any case something else Asian & anime or manga (e.g. Yu-Gi-Oh).

    Pokemon dance studio? Pokemon party battles? Pokemon raids? New customization for Pandas?

    Either way, it will probably be something completely uninteresting to someone like me who has unsubbed and is playing other games atm. I would only re-sub for Legacy (Vanilla, TBC or WOTLK) servers.
    NINJA TURTLES as the next playable WoW race/class combo. WoW has got Kung Fu Pandas, Pokemon and recently even Transformers in it, so I don't see how Ninja Turtles would be any less pathetic than current "WoW" is.

    I think the new feature is cross realm BoA's.

    They've significantly hinted there'll be a 5.5 to completely wrap up the expansion and lead into the next expansion.

    Honestly 5.4 will probably be out at the end of July/beginning of August. When Blizzcon comes around, we'll be 2 months into the new raid and they'll show off the next expansion.

    They even stated that they're working on a way to bridge the lack of content between one expansion to the next so I wouldn't be surprised if the next expansion was out next March/April.

    Your response is exactly why I think it is the feature. The devs stated that a lot of players would say ´meh´ when they heard what the new feature is. I don´t think it is a huge new feature as much as it is a feature that was easy for them to add. they already do item scaling with challenge modes, and they do character scaling with low level pvp battlegrounds. So they are just combining two techs they already have. Also, depending on when you started and how hardcore you are, a LOT of people have never seen those early raids, especially the late BC ones.. and running through them with a lvl 90 is completely different.. they aren´t even raids when you do that. I will probably run at least each of the Vanilla and BC raids once to get a feel for the encounters.

He must just want WoW to die a horrible death. People use Old Raids for Tmog runs. Remove the inability to raid it solo and people will NOT raid them. But I suppose he wants all the classic stuff to be trashed before he's trashed for turning a multi-million dollar game into a sub-par Shrimp-Boat.
    Why do you play this game? Seriously? You seem to only stick around to bitch about everything.
