Submit Questions for the Developers
We have our first interview in a long time coming up at Blizzcon and as always, we want to let the community ask questions! This time our interview will be covering the design of Legion.

If you have any questions you think we should ask, be sure to add them to the comments of the linked post for consideration. We will pick the best questions and add them to our list!

  • Don't post any questions in the comments of this news post. Use the linked topic instead.
  • These should be questions about Legion, not Warlords of Draenor.
  • No class specific questions please. This includes things like balance between the different healing/tank/DPS classes and specs.
  • Keep questions reasonably short.

None of the main stage panels, although I'll probably sit in on the voiceover panel again this year. Thank you! (DaveKosak)

Character / Items
for my own sanity, could u pls confirm that droprate for Medallion of the Legion was not nerfed in 6.2.2? Not seen it in weeks
There have been no changes to its drop rate since Tanaan went live with 6.2. (WarcraftDevs)

Please fix Legendary Ring's explosion getting wasted during Soul Capacitor trinket procs.
How is it wasted? Your contribution should get captured and amplified further by Soul Capacitor. (WarcraftDevs)

PvE
why don't you let us use the (repair) mount in both Socrethar and Tyrant arenas?
In general, you can only mount outdoors – those areas both are fully enclosed. Engineers can drop Jeeves wherever, of course. (WarcraftDevs)

PvP
So what did folks who played and watched think of 6v6? (holinka)
6v6 format works well, enjoyable to watch and looks like great fun to play. Few thoughts though... large buff icons on name plates is annoying, especially when you have players clumped up. possibly allow BL/TW in 6v6, hard for loser to comeback and this should help without being OP. possibly making some maps that suit 6v6, would be awesome.
Thank you for your thoughts. (holinka)
I like objective based better than arena for sure. Matches can get decided a little early on control points however.
Yea control point maps play no better with 6 than they do with 10 sadly (holinka)

Have you considered 4v4?i mean why did you missed the 4s as bracket i can't see it being more unbalanced than 2s but can be fun tho
2 healers 2 dps. yuck (holinka)

Lore
Life Tap is surrounded by what seems to be fel energy, so my Q is: Is fel power converted life force?
The way I would describe it: Fel is chaotic energy. Warlocks convert life into fel, draining the victim as a source of power. (DaveKosak)

Misc
The most challenging part of game development is getting people to stop playing Overwatch. (Muffinus)

    Chances are 95% of the closed beta invites will go to media, streamers, and youtubers. They have already said there will be open beta tests on certain weekends starting the weekend after Blizzcon. I'm not holding out any hope for a closed beta invite since I do none of those things stated above.

    I've become such a huge fan of Travis Fimmel after finally getting into Vikings and having watched all 3 seasons in a short period. I can't wait to see how he does in this movie.

    Ever heard of artistic license? Dalaran and Ironforge both appear in the film even though they weren't really a factor in the First War. They made it a flying city for the film because it's more visually interesting.

    Proof the developers don't even play the game.

    Context man, context. He immediately follows up that statement by saying its a movie about character. He was emphasizing that the story is just as important as the visual technicalities.

    Holinka also proves he doesn't even like PVP. 2 Deeps + 2 healers vs... Man, so many ideas for that.

    It's annoying. They should quit or be fired.

    EDIT: Not to mention creating the whole flying issue out of THIN AIR. Just total incompetence, yet they act like everything's fine.

    I like how they push and hype up this movie (insane new technology, wait what? I mean WHAT?) but this is not a LotR, SW or a Matrix. I think who really love Warcraft will be disapointed and those who don't know about this "orc vs human thing" they will get just another Avatar.
    I just hope this movie won't be profitable to make another one and they can direct those resources back into the game.

    Blizzard do not really put ressources into the movie... not much. and it is a video game movie.....so yeah expect the worse, anticipate the bad, hope for the best. But we know what happen to video game movie most of the time.

    The moment, I started thinking about this movie being bad is the moment they said 2 tribes fighting.......human arent really a tribe, or where LOTS of clan(tribes) that decided to ally.

    They already explained why they did that. It wasn't done out of ignorance, it was done intentionally, with Metzen and Blizzard's approval. They retconned certain details to make some things look cooler, who cares, get over it. It'll probably make the movie look that much better to the masses.
  1. Oozlz's Avatar
    Its the same as changing history to make people accept "cooler and better" things when those things are in fact false. I know its all make believe, but what is the point of having established lore if you are just gonna ignore it and change it instead of building upon it? IMO that makes me care alot less about the franchise as a whole if I know they can and will just change events/ ideas that have happened just to suit their needs going forward instead of building upon it.

    How the heck do you even know what it is or isn't? We haven't even seen a proper trailer yet. This is outright blind hate you're displaying here. Settle down and give them a chance to prove your concerns wrong. It already has a lot going against it as a video game movie. But if it's a good movie, it deserves huge profit and a franchise on the big screen. And did you even consider how many more "resources" will come their way if this movie's a success?

    As for "insane new technology", he's not wrong. ILM is working on this movie, the best in the business, the people who did Star Wars visual effects. And they themselves have said this is some of the finest work they've ever done. One of their leads was quoted saying there were 3 times in the companies history where they felt they made something groundbreaking. The first was the T-Rex from Jurassic Park, the second was Davy Jones from Pirates 2 and the third is visuals in this movie. So what does that tell you?

    I think you should reserve judgement until we see the damn thing.

    Because sometimes, when you write something 20 years ago, you don't consider everything, and some ideas don't even come to you. So 20 years later when they'd like to change certain details taking what they know now into account, what's wrong with that? They're not changing entire themes, just details. I'm sorry but I see a lot of complaining over nothing from people who just like to complain about change. I see nothing wrong with it. And a lot of times the story can actually be made even better and richer when they go back and revise it.
