    I wonder if there's some feature we don't know about. They didn't announce it earlier in case it didn't make it.

    I feel like that if anything, that is more likely to be the invasions from 8.3. Especially if we assume that the invasions with a boss at the end is the new emissaries.
    Mentioned it before, but i do definitely think that if it is iterated well, and the devs keep dailies far away from it, it could end up beign a great system going forward, especially if they have several invasion options per zone.

    Dailies only appeared in 8.3 to be "different" from WQs (despite them essentially being the same). I do not expect dailies to appear at all at launch Shadowlands.

    World Quests came before the invasion type thing. If its just invasions....I don't think it will do as well, World Quests need to be more.

    I thknk there might be some, though only related to the covenant followers. Dailies like in 8.3 i definitely cannot see continuing.
    More specifically dailies more like what the Nazjatar followers gave.

    World Quests really don't need to be more. The problem is that people are becoming fatigued by constant WoW, not that WQs are bad. They will tack on some kind of gimmick to make them more unique or accessible but there is nothing inherently wrong with WQs: it's players feeling the inherent repetition of WoW.

    Vanilla -> Mists was essentially the same thing over and over in terms of systems but you can't do that anymore, people get bored if one expansion is too similar now.

    I mean the objectives within the invasions. They give rewards similar to world quests, and additionally can be completed without having ot group with people, encouraging social play.

    I probably should have stated that when i meant invasions i meant as a replacement for Emissaries, and the objectives within as World Quests 2.0.

    They do need to be more and its not the repetition, its just how small world quests as a system are, they don't last too long and by the time the end of the expansion you could finish them all up pretty fast if one wanted to and since its world content...it can be a big issue at endgame.

    It’s WQ alts can use while leveling

    Towelliee said he's probably taking next Monday/Tuesday off because he's that confident it's dropping then.

    Towelliee said I'm his favorite player and Ion loves me too so I'll get doubleplus alpha in 2 days.

    Maybe not a hidden feature but they did announce a "World Quest 2.0" which to me sounds pretty big, surprised they didn't elaborate on it

    Probably because they had very little to show/give us yet.

    Necromancer really would have been the perfect class for this expansion. Doubly so with Bolvar being the main character we follow through the expansion like Magni in BfA and Khadgar in Legion/WoD. Knights of the Ebon Blade upping their power by recruiting a force of Necromancers would have been sweet.
