    if that's the case, well that's a very, very good news

    As someone who skipped BFA and waited until I could get ShadowLands without paying those pricks anything for that garbo expansion, I'm quite liking the 5 minutes I got to play tonight before the game kicked me out of maintenance.

    No, if anything it’s “tank pulls big group, group is good enough to kill everything and moves on or group isnt and wipes and everyone complains” there’s no “take your time” still.

    I'm one of the folks dealing with the broken character models, and since the new customizations were the big thing I was looking forward to, it's not been great so far.

    I would wait a week or two to be honest. There’s quite a few bugs, which is standard for a prepatch this size, and it will take a bit of time to iron everything out.

    It's a mess, couldn't log in for 2 hours.. Can't even start to unlock mechagnomes (the quest giver just isn't there!) and everything feels just a little off...

    Haven’t actually done any thing yet but the prepatch opened up old taken names so I made some new characters with names I want to use on a new server.

    What specifically has become unkillable? I just did my standard runs of LFR and Normal Antorus to kill Shatug and F'harg on my main and primary alt last night (still looking for their mount drop), and was able to take them out without issue? My main's iLvl is currently ~120 and my alt is ~100 with the squish in effect. Not saying you didn't have some kind of issue, but what did you encounter that killed you?

    I feel like people overhype prepatches. For the most part, your character feels slower and you're mainly just waiting for the new expansion to kick in so you can level again.

    I've been able to login, changed a few abilities around on my DK so it's prepped for 60 and new abilities that will need to be bound. I've had few changes to customisation on a few characters, nothing major, but just a few tweaks. Now I'm messing around with another alt, but, being realistic, I'll still be doing Emissaries, Assaults and the like to farm gold whilst working on Achievements.

    The servers seem relatively stable so far, when you actually get on them (EU). Also the game doesn't like you swapping servers and as a login queue has begun to form, I'm just going to stick on one now and mess around with the characters there.

    for a crappy pre-patch with no content other than new hairstyles the login servers sure are getting hammered

    Wonder if this is somehow related to the strike going on at their French office.

    People always underestimate how many people play for the art assets of this game.

    Open world rare/elite mobs between 1-2M health pre patch which were trivial before patch.

    Are now mobs I cannot kill at all, I've tried around 10 or so different ones in original BfA (8.0) content and on Mechagon island.


    So far my experience with instanced and pre-legion legacy has been fine.


    The issue seems to be poor scaling - my health pool was reduced by a factor of 26, my power by a factor of 21 - but the mob health by only a factor of 7.

    I sure hope it is

    Wait for Shadowlands (or at least the pre-patch event) unless you're interested in leveling alts.

    Well. There is no actual gameplay content so not sure why you would be subbing.. to see the new char gen?
