    I read on Wowhead you have to treat it more like a rhythm game, press the associated button when the attacking orb is close, not immediately when it appears.
    Managed it after reading that, only did it once though (only had 2.5 evenings in Nazjatar yet)
    But your duty to Azeroth is not yet complete. More is demanded of you... a price the living cannot pay.

    The annoying part is when they start getting spammed on all 3 simultaneously.

    like 5 balls per second and on all 3.

    Falls into the category of people believing that them not wanting to play = the game is "literally unplayable and shit". Meanwhile, BfA just got an injection of life with 8.2.

    As usual, Blizzard's damned if they do, damned if they don't.

    'Member how "nobody cared about 8.2" as well, yet the thread reached (and will continue) hundreds of pages.

    8.3 is the next big patch for WoW, bet your ass people care.

    I am curious about when we'll see 8.2.5 on the PTR. I'm sure it'll have Mechagnomes and Vulpera so it'll likely have some kind of big stream reveal first, but how long after the raid will they wait?

  5. #8865
    Surprised to see people actually caring about retail still. BFA 1 month after launch...
    Classic wow is the next best thing, play into that for the next 1 1/2 - 2 years and then hope the next retail expansion is fun.

    I don't think it will have separate reveal stream, but I can see them revealing PTR on next Q&A.

    Based on last few patches, 8.2.5 dates are:
    - News Stream - Late July
    - PTR - Early August
    - Release - Late September/Early October

    It’s probably the last patch of the year.

    8.3 PTR likely after Blizzcon
    Whatever...

    It absolutely will if it has big things like allied races in them. Unless Mechas and Vulpera get pushed to 8.3.

    Then what afterwards? Classic will have its share of hype for a while but if no new content comes to it after a couple years then it'll stay as the side chick to most World of Warcraft players.

    And I'm saying this as someone who has never played Vanilla, played the Classic beta, and look forward to playing Classic and Current WoW.

    Nostalgia only lasts so long, how many people in the world are still playing the SNES? N64? Gamecube? PS1? etc etc

    Nostalgia doesn't last long, it's not sustainable.


    "Things that aren't bugs" already is a sign of people not quite remembering Vanilla's true state. The other thing is, game design has changed since 2004. There's plenty of things we don't go back to and no before someone snarkily says "so does that mean microtransactions are good?" No it doesn't but some gameplay designs back in Vanilla would be questionable post Wrath or even anytime now. Weapon skills, hit max to be able to hit something right(Even though that seems dumb, missing attacks always annoys us and in a game where combat is important it gets grating).

    Its ok to at least remember the past or....preserve it, just don't acting like it was the best ever or even timeless. Unless you're talking about music cause thats even more subjective.

    Someone who was watching a streamer and lost hype becuase of that probably wasn't interested in Classic to begin with.

    I think Classic will be frozen in time and they’ll work on TBC servers.
    Makes no sense to keep working on it, as any changes mean it’s not Classic anymore.
    Whatever...

    Classics actual intended audience was never the gaggle of teens invested in streamer culture.

    Well I was rhetorically asking in the context of the last choice. Since the poster said look to Classic for 1.5-2 years I assume that's admission it'll get stale fast after that if Blizzard does nothing.

    Which is the point I was trying to make, Classic and then nothing will not be able to sustain itself and will be relegated to side-game status once 2-3 years have gone by.

    8.3 PTR likely after Blizzcon
    I agree with this. Expecting 8.2.5 PTR to hit around a month after 8.2 went live is reasonable.

    I would think that the time between 8.2.5 hitting live would be shorter than the wait between 8.1.5 and 8.2. with 8.3 PTR/Live going up right before Blizzcon.

    Reason being I don't know how much BfA exclusive content 8.2.5 will really bring (as in I don't consider the Worgen/Goblin remodel BFA exclusive as that will be rolled out to everyone, any timewalking shenanigans as well, etc).

    Also, 7.3 went Live almost exactly a year after Legion release. While I do expect Blizzard is staggering out BFA releases even more, I feel like there's a chance we could potentially see an 8.3 release before Blizzcon since that'll begin in November.

    And since we know they de-coupled raid releases from patches, just in case 8.3 did manage to reach live say late October (~4 months after 8.2) it doesn't necessarily mean they'd have to release whatever 8.3's raid is two weeks later.

    When 7.2 launched, we didn't get to do the ToS raid until almost 3 months later. This gave ample time for people to still do Nighthold. As it seems Blizzard is more concerned about ample raid time than strictly when x.x.0 and x.x.5 patches release.

  17. #8877
    I'm guessing if 8.2.5 PTR is in July or August, it will sufficiently spoil what 8.3 is about and allow for a livestream before Blizzcon that details everything that happens.

    Then we get Blizzcon with 9.0. I really really doubt we'll see anything about 8.3 at Blizzcon because they'll be hyping up the next expansion, and we don't have Gamescom this year, which leaves a reveal stream as the only way to showcase the patch.

  18. #8878
    What's exciting is we know what we're getting with Classic. 2 months from now we'll be playing a version of wow that's absolutely in the top 3 best versions of the game. We get to play that for a good 1 1/2 - 2 years and then figure out what to do next.

    Hopefully blizzard realizes that they had the formula very close to perfect with classic.
    If blizzard could tweak classes a little bit more but inline with classic design + introduce today's raid mechanics + keep a an open world interactive game, we are there folks!

    Totally agree, the space between the 8.2 Stream and Blizzcon is pretty big, so they have to do a little 8.3 Stream I guess in October after 8.2.5 goes live around mid-late September. As I could see the PTR for 8.2.5 going live 1-2 Weeks after Mythic Opening, which will then also be 1Month after release, like in 8.1 (could be earlier since we have just the small 4th July Holidays in which nothing happens).

    Also I would say the Eternal Palace Cinematic shows the endboss of BFA, but maybe it doesnt spoiler the plot of 8.2.5, which could be the final split and first glance of Sylvanas Endgame starting with the Defense of Thunderbluff. So what I mean is that the PTR doesnt need to wait until the Third LFR Section opens, since it doesnt spoiler anything for the PTR like they couldnt open 8.2 PTR and Stuff because of the Xal Questline.

    If it really is a Sylvanas themed patch it would be cute if they tied it around Halloween release.
