    There should be a third question about how playtime and boa will be purchased. Via ingame token or real money or a thing of both? I personally am not convinced about BoA but I have so much gold that I really dont care about the price. Won't hurt me to just test the AddOn.

    Seriously. Why not skip both DirectX 11 and Metal and focus on Vulkan instead?!

    At least the essence grind keeps Legions reputation as the most alt unfriendly expansion intact

    Sounds like you have other issues. I get 100fps with a gtx 970 and an i5.

    Given how bad this expansion was I would vote for 0 months aswell , unfortunately I spent around 6. I have been playing this game since mid 2004 and I loved this game to death but Legion turned all that around for me.

    Here's hoping that Battle of Azeroth will fix everything !

    Yes, because its their usual carrot on a stick method of doing things. I played this game for years, but just got completely sick and tired of their ever moving goal post that doesn't seem planned out.

    If I put in 1000 hours into an expansion, that's fine when there are tokens and time goals you are collecting for that WHOLE expansion that won't suddenly become invalid out of the blue. Its like starting over and over and over and over and over, and quiet frankly their graphics engine, content and design just doesn't cut it for me anymore. But its bad game design that is the real kicker. Moving the goal post at an expansion is one thing, moving it 12 times every 2 months inside one is just plane infuriating. Steady players will get sick of the grind (like me) and casuals will feel lost every time they pick it back up having missed tons of story that is pointless to even bother with anymore.

    I played for 12 years, but the real "F this game moment" came with legion and the increase of RNG and decrease of tokens worth direct purchases of choice (Not RNG tokens). If I want to "grind" it better damn well be worth the effort and time or I'm going to give the RNG god blizzard worships the big middle finger and the game using it the same. Last thing I want to do is spend 10 quests gathering tokens to turn them in for a random item of s$%t value. I'm not big into gathering tokens to get RNG crap even ONE time. I'm fine with RNG on level 1... maybe you get a token, maybe you don't on any given drop. But to grind for the CHANCE at something like a loot crate? That's my real world time wasted on a digital romp of frustration I just don't care to take anymore.

    Tbh, sounds like maybe you should just move on from WoW.

    I don't have the technical knowledge to tell you why, it just looks that way to me.
    The textures have 100 times more details, items have way more polygons and everything is just better, so either you might want to consider an optician if you can't see it or you are playing on low settings.

    You can flash your 4,1 to 5,1 they are 99.9% identical - I did it with mine and it's not hard at all - it also means you can upgrade your CPU with a faster one - there are plenty on ebay for pretty cheap.

    No Allied Races, makes this patch useless. There are no major balancing for the likes of Affliction or Windwalker which there should be and who the fuck cares about Ulduar Timewalking.

    Seems like you don't know what vaporware means.
    Legion's Dalaran is an almost exact copy, aside from a few structures and npc changes...which still aren't enough to account for the loading time, don't make stuff up.
    You are telling me people can load any area of the game without an issue BUT Dalaran is just too much...those textures must be amazing /s

    I don't play on a SSD, so don't even bring that stuff up...WoW shouldn't need one to be playable.
