Battle for Azeroth Beta - Build 26788
A new build is on the way and character copy is here!

Additionally, today is the day you've all been waiting for. . . character copy will be enabled! Please note that under load, the character copy system could fail to create at times due to volume of requests. If things seem slow, take a deep breath, wait a bit and try again later.

As always, I'll leave this thread open for discussion as long as conversations remain civil and adhere to forum guidelines.

Thanks for your patience everyone!

    Maybe I'm here too early. If it took them 22 build iterations for 5 new item/ability icons, I'm going to be a bit disappointed.

    The finishing touches are last, if anything else that should disappoint you the most.

    Maybe i'm just ignored but did Ion get demoted ? wasn't he the game director ?

    Tom Chilton is an Activision guy. I don't think that was Ion's title, but if so I definitely fear for the overall direction of WoW.

    Yeah that seems weird. Last we heard Tom Chilton moved to another Blizzard project, in which he shouldn't be listed as game director here. Maybe he came back?

    Because he helped to start the project. Anyone who did any work on a project gets mentioned.

    The credits would reflect legion overall not how legion ended. Even if Ion is game director now, he wasn't at legion start. That transition took place during legion didn't it.

    Yes the patch we've all be waiting for 2.2gbs of credits!

    He did not become Game Director until some time after Legion's release IIRC.

    100 exalted rep mount is a unicorn recolor of Dreamweavers in blue as the icon suggests. Also kultiran druid flight form is great.
