    I think this is another point for 10.0 azeroth revamp. What do you guys think?

    Might be, curious why it's just boots, probably a random choice, if it's just a tease for 10.0

    I personally think the updated skyboxes for SW and Org are a bigger deal. Apparently they only turn HD when the weather hits, implying there may be a nice new default skybox incoming.

    What exactly is doable in this build? You can't even check raids if they are soloable, at least Antorus and Uldir.

    +Though it's a recolour I'd argue the Green Serpent is iconic to the expansion so was much sought after.

    I'm just saying there are other Legion mounts that would have been much cooler to add and people would actually be using..





    I'd say these were both pretty iconic legion mounts that were never given to players so were good candidates.

    Or for an outlier...
    WoD mounts were 20 shades of wolves and like 10 elleks
    MoP cloud serpent
    Wrath is a horse with no wings

    All were common mounts during the expansion
    I’m not saying they aren’t lazy but I am saying it’s not worse than the past

    Hmm. That is a -1 for the 10.0 revamp, but it could still be if they are slowly introducing stuff? COPIUM

    It was always going to be the character select screen gear, I don't think its a +1 or -1 for a revamp. If anything it points to them significantly caring about new players and how they see the game, which is a bigger point towards a revamp more than anything.

    The character select gear seems much more fitting with what we have currently. Hand-picked sets that evoke the fantasy of each individual class. This is just the gear you spawn in with when you make a new character. I guess to make it look less like everyone got up to fight right after finishing dinner.

    How would the alternative make any sense at all? When you spawn in at level one you're a brand new recruit with effectively no experience. You should be in extremely plain, clean gear provided to you, like someone just handed you a bundle of clothes and said "Alright, put this on and report back here, make it quick". Not in some wicked sweet gladiator armor or looking like you just strolled out of a Kirin Tor council meeting when you know literally one spell.

    The character creation sets are there to give you a glimpse of what that class looks like down the road. The starter sets are there to be an unassuming initial set of gear.

    I don't mean starting the player with the character creation preview set, I was answering to someone on whether this set would be the preview.

    When you spawn in I imagine this set should be somewhat fitting, looking that bit better than the old dirty shirt.
    Now this should be a nice precursor to the Exiles reach Warfront lookalike gear. You start with basic plate, and by the end you are decked out in much more impressive looking regalia.

    Y‘all should really step down with your world revamp expectations before you get disappointed when the next expansion is just a generic one like all the ones before.

    We might have some very small clues and hints that maybe could point towards it, but you always have to think about the cost-benefit factor. Attracting new players to WoW in 2022? The amount will be tiny, at best. This game is 18 years old by the end of next year. It will be easier to generate cash with a WoW mobile game than to revamp the entire world in a game that’s almost two decades old and is long past its peak.

    I‘m not saying it’s definitely not happening, but some here are way too optimistic that it will be the case for the next expansion based on basically nothing. Calm down your expectations and be hyped when a world revamp is indeed announced.

    But that wouldn't be a disappointment for people who don't want revamp.

    That's not the fundamental purpose of a revamp though. Or even really a secondary concern. As it is, new players don't get sent to Cata-era stuff, they get put through Exile's Reach, dropped in Stormwind/Org and then go immediately into BfA and Shadowlands, so they don't need a new and improve experience.

    Revamps are for existing players, not new ones. Because it's previous players who even understand what is happening, no random new player is gonna get excited about (to use Cata examples) the bridge in Redridge being complete, or Desolace/the Barrens having green overgrowth, or Auberdine being destroyed. For a new player those are simply places that are how they've always been, the benefit of the change is purely for people who understand what those locations were prior. Just like hypothetical flourishing Westfall, or rebuilt Gilneas/Stromgarde, or a floating Exodar would only be for the players who were around to see westfall farmland or those three cities in ruins and want to see them improved and rebuilt.

    IMO, what people should hope for are world updates as opposed to a full world revamp. Given the sheer amount of zones alongside whatever new zones we'd need for the story, I feel asking the current dev team to do the entire world again is just asking for a lot of zones to be half done at best & endgame to suffer for it. Besides, generally speaking the updates people request tend to be a lot more focused in certain areas. Gilneas, Tirisfal, Darkshore...places like that. I'm not sure when I last heard someone talk about wanting a Stonetalon or Un'goro revamp. Plus given all the sadness people had losing their old fave vanilla quests/dungeons...unless Zidormi is going to be in every zone & WoW is going to balloon more in size, a lot of chains that people like will be lost.

    Now world updates...there's a lot you can do there. Fix up Gilneas, give us Exodar & Silvermoon on non-TBC servers to remove the load times, mix in some new updates to see the progress made in Stromgarde & the like...then we've got something to build on. This also allows for future updates to some old world zones as they fit in the story, meaning the world is growing with us rather than just set in a time capsule around X expansion. Plus that can come into effect for several other continents as well, we aren't just limited to the main two. I'd love to see what this expansion has done to places like Icecrown or Storm Peaks.

    They can do each continent at a time, like Kalimdor expansion with the new city for Night Elves being the Alliance capital and Orgrimmar being the Horde one, and Eastern Kingdoms with Quel'thalas revamped/rebuilt being the Horde main hub and Stormwind the Alliance one.

    We don't even need both continents. We only need it to be either Eastern Kingdoms or Kalimdor, back to roots and remastered!

    If Blizzard keeps making generic expansions based in cosmic places, then I think it's better for the game to actually die so Blizzard can focus on World of Warcraft 2 because these cosmic themes are interesting at first but they get old very quickly. After all, these themes aren't what made this franchise so successful.

    We need more character development, Blizzard keeps adding more and more characters every expansion but forgets about the old ones. I mean, Genn is going to be a refugee king in Stormwind forever? What about the Nigh Elves? Did someone say forsaken? The last time I checked Sylvanas isn't even their leader anymore, and they don't even have potential homes to settle in... Trolls? Who? Anybody?
    Azeroth must be remastered!

    Do people think we are getting another patch for this expansion after 9.1.5? I mean I kinda didn't think this would be a thing. If we do is it going to be on levels of 8.3? Where the budget felt completely butchered? To be fair that was kinda happening to all Blizzard IPs past two years or so? *slow blink* I think Blizzard would know if they don't make any content they probably wouldn't be looking at any revenue until the next expansion comes out.. if one even comes out.

    I did think of the positive tho.. if we get a final patch that ties up the end of the expansion. We shouldn't see much of Sylvanas next expansion. I am hoping to not see much of Tyrande and Jaina too. It's not that I mind the WC3 girls but they been getting quite a bit of spotlight in BFA and SL. There is other characters in the franchise. I wouldn't really want a loose end tbh.. but if it were to be a rushed, low budget patch. I really don't know what would be worse... I will stick with former as we have had three expansions with Sylvanas.

    As we have just heard of patch 9.1.5, I am guessing we will not know for a bit.

    We will definitely get a 9.2, doubting that is just uttlery asinine. The quality and quantity of it may be up for debate, but they won't just end SL without giving us a conclusion.
    MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis.

    9.2 is 1000% confirmed and happening, as is 10.0. The only thing up for debate is 9.2.5 and 9.3 (and i guess 9.3.5, if 9.3 happens)

    Nobody serious is doubting the existence of 9.2 as it was indirectly announced by Ion half a year ago (he never called it 9.2 though), people are doubting the existence of 9.3.
