    Those two don't really have a connection, though. Demon Hunter suffers more from being overly simplistic class design. A third spec of that would hardly have helped.

    Yeeee, I am not a WoW dev, so I do not make claims on how simple is creating (and maintaining) a third spec for a class.

    Demon Hunter doesn't feel lackluster because it doesn't have a third spec, it feels lackluster because it has a super simplistic rotation and lacks interesting rotational mechanics, operating on basically watered down rage. If they had done a better job of making its movement gimmick feel rewarding instead of awkward (momentum/rush) or automated (blade dance) it would be a much stronger feeling class. Or if they had actually given it some new and unique resource mechanic like a more active fury management trying to stay close to but not go over the edge of demonic power.

    I have never had any interest, at all, in Holy(pr), so the class essentially has always had two specs for me, but it has never felt lackluster because disc and shadow are both engaging.

    Then you lack any sense of creativity I guess. There have been so many good fan concepts for classes and specs, it would have been really easy to give DH a third spec.

    Shadowlands is on sale for 50% until march 9th. Whenever they announce an expac its purchasable right away and the previous one merges into the subscription game. Could this mean that there will be no announcement until atleast march 9th?

    Yeee, because all it takes is a good concept, and everything else just happens. You lack sense of reality, I guess.

    Is the merge always immediate? Completely arbitrary and vague recollection: but it seems to me like that's usually a thing that happens at prepatch, isn't it? Because otherwise you have an entire year where the expansion is just free with the sub cost.

    Holy shit and I almost bought it a few days ago. I'm so glad I waited a few more days.

    The time has come, I guess.

    Will play this patch, but im not looking forward to Blizzard leaving us totally in the dark yet again when it comes to story. Decent shot we wont get any santisfying answers out of this, just more convoluded mess that we gotta wait "to see unfold".

    That was expected anyway, because they are going to wait at the very least until all the 9.2 cinematics are shown to announce the expansion. The Jailors defeat being the notable one, which will happen on March 8th when guilds defeat him and the world will see the end raid cinematic.

    The campaign will conclude at the end of March. So 10.0 announcement is going to happen after March 9th. Probably middle or end of March or early April.

    Yeah I have a vague memory this is how it tends to work. Especially considering the expansion is announced while the expansion is still awaiting future patches. Would be weird if the game was "free" during that time, but maybe I am wrong.

    Of course, with how this expansion has worked it wouldn't be completely out of the question to have it work differently in regards to when the expansion becomes part of the base game.

    Interesting. That is the week the raid fully opens and makes the last 3 bosses available.

    How exactly is Blizzard leaving us in the dark this time? The expansion is releasing the last patch in 5 days. Yes the story will take a while to get to the end, but you do usually have to experience the story as it is released.

    Wut? You would like it to be all revealed or on the patch day, or maybe even before it?

    Can anyone translate this? It seems to be circulating Chinese social media, as the source of the leak is a student intern at NetEase who has since been fired.
