    That's a strong likelihood IMO. The Incubus was a last-second addition in response to a post from a troll from this very forum.

    Yep. Weapons are going to be stat sticks just like in Feral and Guardian Druid.

    Im pretty sure they said it starts at level 5 and you alternate between spec and class talents every level. You get 5 spec and 5 class talents from 60-70 to spend.

    So 65 talents. 33 class talents and 32 spec talents. Thats my guess.

    DRUID FORMS AYY LMAO


    Totally subjective



    A normal loking draconic race would be better than a skinny lame gecko CLASS that they want to sell as "new race"


    1. Blizzard is not correct
    2. the visage form straight up goes against the lore of the dragons in wow, which can turn into any humanoid




    It don't, again, play other games with humanoid dragons, they work fine
    Orcs and humans are not big and bulky. Big and bulky is Tauren, Draenei, Kultiran etc.

    I think they wanted the actual Dragons to feel a level above actual players so we have these kind of "demi-dragons" but I think everyone would have preferred a dragon-magic caster that is a humanoid race 99% of the time & turns into a big dragon just for their big cooldowns.
    I wish you would stop fixating on one or two developers. Its not healthy.

    These roundtable discussion videos they posted are kind of annoying. Like I just want a minute of uninterrupted gameplay of Evoker but it cuts to them every 5 seconds ...

    Alexstrasza has a staff in the key art. Could be a sign that the Evokers use staves.

    I hope the lack of systems means the devs can put a larger emphasis on dynamic and interesting world content. As I get older, I'm becoming more of a casual pug player who does keys when I can, PvP when I can, but would prefer to veer more towards world content.

    Better, more dynamic world content I feel is very important for this expansion. We can't go back to raid(&Mythic+) or die.
    WoD didn't have covenants, good professions and talents, mythic+, world quests. Even if its WoD but with all I mentioned it puts it far above WoD and lets be real here even MoP for end game content. MoP was good for the time, but it wouldn't cut it today.

    Have we talked about this from Blizzplanet interview?

    Greg Burke: So regardless of how the new race looks, will we be able to play our mage-like abilities in and out of human and Draco form, or are we going to be permanently stuck in Draco form when we’re in combat?

    Tina Wang: You are all going to be in Dracthyr form when you are in combat. Yes. But let me talk about the Dracthyr and their customizations. There is more customization than what you saw in the video. there’s actually so many ways that you can customize that Dracthyr. Even the shape of the face. You can have, like these snouts that can look more ancient, or more sleek, or like a more blunt.

    You can even slightly change your torso to be like slightly more slender or slightly bulkier; and the armor that you wear is a type of armor that you will be able to customize at the Barbershop, too. So Dracthyr, I think they’ll also be able to wear shoulders, tabards, belts across their visage and Dracthyr form. While the visage form is able to wear all-armor.


    You will be able to see Shouldersm tabards and belts that your humanoid form wears, plus you can customize your other bits of armor and jewelry at the barber shop. Not as big as some though, but I still thing legs would be good to add too.

    Also they have slightly bulkier options coming not seen for the model shape.

    If you're going to reply to all my posts from 12 hours ago can you consolidate them all into one post, please.

    They then also said only 4 were going to have a mythic difficulty: This tells me they're doing what FFXIV does & it uses the same dungeon for multiple instances. Really its not 8 dunegons; its just 2 slight variations of 4 dungeons. This sounds like how they intend to release it this year: A considerably smaller expansion, even smaller than Shadowlands.

    "90% of people are happy with this" lol maybe 90% of the people still playing this game, which at this point is about 30% of the people who were playing at the start of Shadowlands

    To be fair Blizzard did state 11 years ago that they wanted to add male and female versions of all Warlock pets. So while it may have been prompted by a troll in these forums it has been something on the back burner at Blizzard.

    It's 31 class, 30 spec. Total is 61 or 1 per level starting at 10. You get 2-3 skills for free.

    Blizzplanet: How is the level 70 cap going to work with Chromie Time? Will Chromie Time be stretched to cover level 50-60 as well? Or will we be forced to go to Shadowlands for level 50-60?


    Jackie: Oh, so we’re keeping it. For the new player experience, new players specifically will be sent from Exile’s Reach to BFA, then onto Dragon Isles. More veteran players, people who have already leveled a character to max can choose like Chromie Time to go level in Draenor or Pandaria or Shadowlands. But for new players, it’s going to go: Exile’s Reach, BFA, Dragon Isles.


    Also they are talking about letting you keep soulshapes in some capacity.

    Why BFA still? just why?

    Oh my god... they're skipping Shadowlands. From BFA to the Isles directly.

    That's telling.

    It makes more sense to come in a world revamp expansion anyways IMO.
