Gamescom Legion Stream - Patch 7.1 Return to Karazhan
Slootbag streamed from Gamescom today with WatcherDev. Karazhan is coming back as a dungeon in Patch 7.1!

Patch 7.1 - Return to Karazhan
  • Karazhan is coming back as a large five player dungeon with all nine bosses.
  • The old Karazhan will still exist, you can still go and farm it for things.
  • There will also be a small additional raid between The Emerald Nightmare and The Nighthold that wraps up the Stormheim story.
  • Patch 7.1 will also have outdoor content associated with Suramar that pushes forward the Nightfallen story.
  • Patch 7.1 is coming to the PTR right after Legion launches!
  • Encounters have been play tested internally, it is good to go.

Game Development
  • There was a period where the team focused on faster expansions, sacrificing things that they shouldn't have. This made the experience worse.
  • The focus going forward is a steady stream of content.
  • Priority #1 is making sure that you don't run out of things to do.
  • The team is never going to rush an expansion, they will be released when they are done.
  • Ensuring there is always content in the live game while working on the expansions is important.
  • Raid tiers should last around 4 to 5 months.
  • This time around there won't be a content drought - "Don't worry, we got you!"

    Yeah they totally butchered Monastery by changing the path. And new Scholo is way better than that old clusterfuck. Merging bits of SM was the best thing they had done in a long time since at that point keys were worthless. Although that was the case since 3.3 for most dungeons.

    Ion already said that 1 year expansions are not the plan anymore, it was unreal to think it could happen, they already have more content in Legion than WoD had after 6.2 at launch lol. They are also adding bare minimum 3 new dungeons and 2 Tanaan style areas, and that looks like it may have already changed because Karazhan wasn't even one of the things they mentioned in their content to come so they are keeping a lot of cool stuff from us a secret.
