    Just... A new race, a new class, a new continent, new dungeons, new raids. A customizable, GW2-esque flying mount. Massive talent and profession overhauls.

    On paper, this seems like the exact thing most of the people here have been moaning about wanting for years.
    This screams its great for me honestly.

    Talent System looks interesting, I really like the humanoid form of the Dracthyr, and improved Flying that is instantly available is always a plus.

    It can only be good.

    I am so happy theres no Torghast/Island Expeditions/Warfronts crap.

    I don't mind a more grounded/less dramatic angle for the expansion. This dragon race looks shit though. Lack of the cancer that spread through this game (grinds, borrowed power etc) is enough of a positive I'm staying neutral.

    Personally I'm super interested to see what they could do with this.
    Granted the picture was so bad quality it was sort of understandable. The later red one was a much better looking image.

    There is nothing to do but dungeons and raiding.
    Its still quite early. Hopefully we'll see more stuff later on

    My thoughts on this reveal:

    The presentation was really disgusting and felt so creepy corporate clean. Really bad. Especially the third group laughing scripted at stuff that wasn't funny at all.

    I liked the cinematic. Good idea to construct the trailer around this wholesome titan watcher chungus.

    Don't like Dracthyr. The furry form design is repulsive to me and the humanoid form really bland, including the mental problem hair colors. Disappointing they didn't made some races playable that are really grounded in the lore.

    Can't really say much about Evoker. Sad that it is tied to the Dracthyr and only encompasses 2 specs. A Dragonsworn class open to all classes with some exclusive customisation options for all races would've been way cooler. Empower sounds like it will become tedious really quick.

    Dragonriding sounds fun, but not really a big selling point to me. But I'm biased as I prefer exploration on foot.

    UI overhaul is long overdue and very welcome. Looks great.

    Return of talent trees is my favorite feature so far. I'm looking forward to test it out.

    Profession system looks interesting. But it will only be a selling point, if it is impactful and itemization is less randomized.

    Zones looked great. Really liked the new gnoll models.

    Not that excited about this, as the core feature (new race/class) doesn't appeal to me. Really expected some secret additional big reveal/feature at the end to sell this to a broader audience. It remains to be seen, if the remaining stuff will make a return worthwhile.

    Yeah even I'm shocked that we whiplashed around to people shouting Torghast, Island Expeditions and Warfronts are/were good. It seems more like people enjoying being contrarian than consistent.

    No release date.

    No Pre-orders.

    I am calling mid/end of next year till the Expansion is out.

    Enjoy 12 months of Shadowlands.
    HAHAHA. Mid-End of next year for this? Oh, come on. It can't be THAT bad.

    I'm a bit gutted at the new race being linked to the new class (not fun) and at their draconic form looking so weird... love the humanoid form though.

  10. #49950
    so you can only be a human or an elf?? what kind of stupid design is that?

    Yeeee, this post should be saved as an example.
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    People are still waiting for the next non-filler expansion...

    It's not coming, not in 11.0 or 15.0

    These type of expansions are the best we will get.

    There seems to be a few people with a pathologic need to piss on everything, though.

    Seems the name of the game for Dragonflight is getting the basics up to snuff.

    So, this seems like a back to basic expansion.

    Prof and UI revamp.
    New race/class. Kinda like Demon hunters though if you think about it. Demon hunters were added as only blood elves and night elves, so it makes sense.
    No Artifact power system.
    New more in depth talent system.
    Dragon Riding, which is flying but more interesting. Kinda like GW2.


    Basic 5 zones. No world revamp. No new systems. Im half hyped half depressed. It looks cool, but it feels like its missing something. Wheres the big new feature?

    The website lists some dungeons and raid

    -Neltharus, stronghold of the black dragonflight
    -Uldaman gets expanded
    -Life Pools of the red dragoflight

    First raid is an "ancient prison of the Primal Incarnates" that we go into "before their malevolent power can be unleashed against the Dragon Aspects." From the sounds of it, I guess an opposing group of primal dragons.

    Considering they only really gave us an appetizer and introduction of what it is, I thought it was pretty good. There's still a lot of stuff they left out which kinda gives me more confidence because I know there's more stuff coming. They don't need to reveal everything in a first expansion look IMO.

    Is that not what everyone wanted? No grindy systems or borrowed power?

    The "big OOMPH" of the last three expansions have been pointless grinds designed to drag out engagement numbers. Quality is better than quantity.
