    You can build a ship on hopes and dreams but it doesn’t mean it’ll float

    All we can realistically hope for is blizzard fixing the annoyances of this expansion and they are doing that
    Torghast was boring and had no rewards
    As much as I don’t personally love the new system it does fix the issues with cosmetic rewards and conduit upgrades

    The maw was restrictive and gave no reason to do it daily because you weren’t able to get much done without the eye screwing you
    The removal of the eye and the addition of mounts along with tormentors and assaults fixed that

    Catch up was very slow
    They made each campaign chapter give 2 renown on catch up and boosted the drop so much my shaman who started the campaign yesterday is 40 because of lfr, world bosses, and the campaign. The catch up gear is also a decent ilvl and your ability to upgrade the gear is determined by your main’s progress. My main is rank 4 research so my alt has some 220 gear from upgrades

    Expansions don't all have to be 3 patches long.
    Agreed. Expansions don't need to have 3 patches and in fact several expansions had more or less than 3 patches.

    TBC: It had 4 content patches.
    MOP: It had 4 content patches.
    WOD: It had 2 content patches.

    And Yes 6.1 was a content patch and is acknowledged as such by Blizzard on their official website, no matter how much WoD apologists want to pretend it wasn't one.

    WoW players have grown complacent but the truth is that an expansion doesn't need to have 3 content patches, that's not a rule, so Shadowlands could perfectly end with just 2 content patches like WoD.

    6.1 was not a content patch.

    I would also say 2.2 wasn't a content patch either. 5.3 likely would've been 5.2.5 if they started back then.

    If we go by today's standards if what a .1 patch would add then 6.1 did add Blackrock Foundry. Yes it was already in the game, and the armor was the same as in Highmaul, but still.

    On a wildly different note though.

    I seem to be close to capping on Anima, and I have bought pretty much everything the Necrolords have to offer. I don't suppose anyone has any experience swapping covenants for rewards? Specifically how it ended up working in practice.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Yeah, but I think blizzard tried to pretend it was one. I honestly don't remember at this point.

    That's something, at least.

    Compare that to Patch 2.2, the skimpiest major content patch ever.

    No matter the topic, someone will find a way to redirect it to complain about their current aggro.

    WOD didn't have ANY content patches. It was shit and that's part of why I laugh at anyone who thinks BFA was worse.

    Patch 6.1 was extremely light on content and might have better been named Patch 6.0.5. It was a small set of updates, but using a major patch number may have been misleading. The team had just launched the expansion and was going on holiday vacations, but wanted to get some fixes and improvements in before the next major patch.

    I think Ion talked about how 6.1 was more comparable to a mini patch, which was truly a concept once Legion started.

    I am of the idea 6.1 was supposed to be FAR more than what we got. Likely would've had Farahlon, or a Shattrath Mini Raid as the TRUE beginning of those types of raids. But it appears that may have been scrapped. Highly possible we'll see a Shattrath raid for 10.0 however.

    It had 1 TRUE content patch. And that was 6.2.

    so depending on 9.2 i dont see what would lead us to go back to AU draenor

    like i see that when we go to the light expansion which, as much as i hate to admit, the stupid first ones lore is setting us up for in terms of powerful beings

    but as far as i can see 9.2 is probably going to be us getting to where the sepulcher is and actually managing to get some form of advantage over the jailer for once since he now has 0 allies with him on the other side of that portal and sylvanas either sacrificing herself to save anduin or to stop the jailer himself. 9.3 will lead us back to azeroth because thats where his goal lies since Azeroth is a "unique" world soul and our link to her is why we were able to interact with a relic of the first ones. Whether that brings us into the dragon isles will actually determine the next expansion. If it does then i can see us getting a link to other planes next expansion

    Light and Shadow is likely next. I still stand by my 10.0 theory. Shattrath raid is VERY likely considering Yrel, the Lightbound, etc.

    Dragon Isles can be the next main continent tbh. Doesn't hurt the Light/Shadow plotline at all. If anything, it helps it.

    What next? We'll straight up say expacs we don't like didn't exist?

    You won't get a Shattrath Raid anymore lol. That train left Gorgrond long ago ...

    Your compliance isn't a factor. The fact is that WoD was indeed recognized by Blizzard to have 2 content patches, one named "Garrison Invasions" and one named "Fury of Hellfire".

    I don't mind the idea of an afterlife in WoW. It opens up a lot of potential new zones. But indeed I'm so over these four zones (yes, four). There's far more interesting things you can do with WoW's folklore and the afterlife than what happened here. A Loa zone, a zone for geomancers, the Ancestral plane, O'Grila, A full De Other Side zone. Every small race in WoW has a seed for more interesting zones.


    The fact that all the zone storylines are effectively finished in 9.1s campaign makes me think that the next patch will be a different realm entirely,
    The name 'Sepulcher' doesn't spark much hope for a drastically different zone. But indeed a new zone nonetheless.

    Well, we also thought that Nyalotha would be a new zone or even an expansion setting.

    A huge disappointment as I really loved how that raid looked. It's the most beautiful instance in the game. It's such a shame that lorewise it's all destroyed now, there's not even a chance of revisiting this place in future content bar Bronze dragon flight antics.
