    Anyone else remember watching the Shadowlands Features Trailer and feeling like something was missing? I recall watching it and being like, "Huh, that's it?" I don't want that for 10.0, please!
    Yeah, same. It's the only feature announcement where I felt that way. I think that classes and races are important hype generators in those, because they are much more tangible of a feature than "ascend the tower of torghast" or "warfronts" (regardless of how bad those features ended up being).
    The shadowlands trailer flat out announced each zone separately, making it feel like they had extra nothing to present

    Because it was, expansion didn't had new class or new races, it feels empty and boring

    the other features were also minor with showing only torgast and covenants

    I just went back and watched the Legion and BFA features trailer and you're right! In Legion and BFA, they showed the zones but didn't name them. Naming them certainly added to the SL features trailer. I agree with you that adding new classes or races may generate more HYPE; however, even without those additions in the SL trailer I simply didn't feel much of a connection. On the flip-side, I really enjoyed the SL cinematic.

    Then they should go for a new race(s) then. Theres enough classes to go around.

    I think the opposite. We already got 10 new races in BFA, I think we need a new class. They can't rely forever on borrowed power each expansion without adding anything that last.

    And how many classes does this game need? There's enough of them, I get that it adds hype but its not like there's no variety.

    In theory, just one. Druids can cover every possible role, so all other classes are unnecessary.

    The question of "how many classes does the game need" is irrelevant. It never mattered in the first place, as the game always had more classes than necessary.

    The game doesn't *need* anything and variety is the spice of life.
    The only argument against new classes is "balance", but a class would affect far less the balance than the constant extra system layers added on top of layers on top of classes, so I refuse that logic.

    I watch that every once in a while when i want to feel hyped. The WoD and Cata ones also got a great reaction.

    I don't think any reaction has ever been bigger than "New character Models".

    By the time 10.0 releases, it will have been almost 6.5 years since the last class was released. Its time. Honestly, if they really wanted to generate hype they would do 3 things.

    1. New Class.
    2. New races.
    3. Player Housing.

    Those are the 3 biggest things they could do to generate hype.

    The legion announcement cheering from the crowd is more impressive when you consider it was Gamescom and not Blizzcon that would be loaded with fans for WoW

    Make it 18 years without a new rDPS, and 10 since the last healer.
    Also, glad to hear I'm not the only one that sometimes just randomly watches crowd reactions to reveal trailers lol

    Don't forget there was no new classes that could use mail armor, and there was no new class that can use bow.

    This is how I imagine Undermine to really be --- or rather anything heavily Goblin/Gnome tech. Mechagon's questing zone should have been the actual dungeon areas.

    The same is true for cloth.
    You are welcome, Metzen. I hope you won't fuck up my underground expansion idea.

    As someone with the terrible life decisions of maining both hunter and shaman at different points, I think we're ok without more mail classes lol, just fuse it with plate or leather so we can have nice things

    That link is broke.

    Also, yes its far past time we get another ranged class. What class could be a rdps and a healer?

    I suppose you could have a dragon class with ranged dps. If they did add a dragon class I will be disappointed if it doesn't have 4 specs. Although, I think every spec should potentially have abilities from every flight. Like a heal from red or bronze, and a defensive black flight ability.

    Tank spec- Mostly Black and Bronze. Heals wounds rewinding time.
    Healer- Mostly red with some green and bronze.
    Ranged DPS- Mostly Blue with some bronze and green.
    Melee DPS- More like a druid form. Abilities from all flights, but takes the form of a dragon to fight.
