Legion - Increased View Distance
One of the nice features in Legion is the significantly increased maximum view distance. In the comparison that we included, you can see that the view distance is increased, but objects no longer load as far away. This may not be intended, as the Environment Detail setting appears to have no effect on object loading distance right now.

What's the purpose of removing rune regen abilities from Dk's? Why does Frost have talents to regen and unholy doesnt?
Due to a bug in Alpha, Frost is missing baseline Runic Empowerment and Unholy is missing baseline Runic Corruption. (WarcraftDevs)

PvP
Very interesting, although I'm more concerned about tanks being too, uh, tanky in PvP.
We share that concern. Fortunately, we can adjust their health for PvP only. (holinka)

wonder what odds are or of getting the nemisis quests account wide or nerfed a little?4 hours n 2 panda kills
No plans to change these quests - we don't want to diminish the accomplishments of those who have completed them. (WarcraftDevs)

With the changes to Honor and Conquest in Legion how will we get old PvP gear for transmog? Gold?
We're still discussing the exact method, but plan to make them accessible. (WarcraftDevs)

Would sure be nice if PVP box quality also increased with prestige. I only PVP casually and would still like epics
We don't want Prestige to offer player power, as it would then be considered mandatory by many players. (WarcraftDevs)

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

saw your tweets about not teaching calc in high school and opting for stats instead. Reason being? More everyday application?
Yes. I haven't used calculus ever, even as a scientist. Statistics comes up in every day life frequently. (OccupyGStreet)

How have you kept from burning out from game development? I felt they sucked the life and hope out of me after one project...
I was fortunate to start my career at a studio that cared about the long term health and careers of its developers. (OccupyGStreet)
Sadly they are not all like that and many folks may have to leverage early job experience to eventually get a good job. (OccupyGStreet)

I'm sorry to bring up WoW but I just wanna ask, do you miss working on an MMO?
Not terribly. It's really hard to get the amount of change right for a passionate player base. (OccupyGStreet)

    I'll have to disagree, I've had quite fun this year and being on a PvP server makes the dailies pretty fun.

    Also lucky enough to get the mount post exploit which is really satisfying.

    You do realize if you do the dailies each day, and buy a savage gift from the garrison holiday vendor, there is a chance for a mount to drop? Among other free resources (gobs of oil, apexis crystals, Medallion of the Legion, etc)? They take like five minutes to do.

    How does the view distance result into performance? Right now you can do it as well, render distance, but even with a 980 ti 4,4 ghz, 16gig ram any higher then 100% causes sever fps loss, so how is it in legion ?

    Performance seems somewhat improved, even with the longer view distance, but obviously I haven't done any formal benchmarks or raids. Right now there isn't support for loading lower detail things far away in the Warlords client, so you load the full high detail version. Legion just loads lower detail versions of things in the distance.

    I don't expect in raids to be that much different, hope that the lower detail of things doesn't remove immersion, one of the most horrible things in the last 10 years are pop ups for me.. breaks it badly o hai tree I didn't see before! Or suddently the tree has 5 more bushes on it xD

    It really annoys me that they made the mount come from the savage gifts which cost the same as the decorations and the pet. They should have included the decorations in the savage gift as well, I love Christmas but I also love mounts. =(

    how many raid tiers did the view distance cost? people who have quasi-decent pc's already have good view distance. id rather hear about actual content rather than visual effects. SMH blizz.

    That Overwatch trailer was weak. Actually laughed at it in the theater many others did as well.

    Surprised the guy didn't get any flak for this.

    We all know that the minute the casual masses start to unsub for lack of free epics blizz will send them the whole set in the mail .
    So no flak needed there .

    Exactly 0.000162912 tier. Fact.

    Bought the mount on AH. Not interested in the daily quests or decorating my garrison.

    Should be a time of bringing people together, but they take the cheap route every time.
  1. aeuhe4yxzhds's Avatar
    I do hope they increase the distance you see mobs and players. Its 2015 for fuck sake, they should not pop in right in front of you when you are on a ground mount at 200%, its even worse when you fly. Its just unacceptable.

    And when are they fixing they way ground clutter is drawn? Right now it depends where the camera is, and not where the player model is. It's been like that for forever.
