    The crooked shitposter with no eyes is watching from the endless thread.

    From the space that is everywhere and nowhere, the crooked shitposter feasts on memes.

    He has no eyes to see, but he dreams of infinite memeing and trolling.

    Yeah but unless you preorder I don't think you'll have access to them until launch. Same way with Demon Hunters if I remember correctly.

    Most likely first week of pre-patch will be just class changes and playing around with new talents, then 2 weeks of pre-patch event - some catch up stuff in Badlands and Evoker starting zone. Technically early access, you will catch up to rest if you plan to main Evoker.

    WoW expansion never had typical pre-order bonuses, because these vanish when game releases. In WoW you just get some parts of expansion content before main launch (DH, 4 Allied Races, DKs for Allied Races, Evoker).

    I did say say a bronze dragon. He also didn't come out of nowhere as he was the one that helped us investigate the Timeless Isle in MoP and we helped to power up his artifact. They did show the trial and his involvement "off screen" in a book. He let Garrosh go as a way to have a connection and introduce the "iron" weapons. It was no more nonsensical then anything else in WoW. The difference is you are purposefully trying to find ways to make it sound more nonsensical while not applying the same treatment to every other story in wow.

    It wasn't universally hated. It wasn't even a bad story. The entire thing gets memed because of the time travel aspect and people not being able to understand it. It is no worse then any other story.

    I miss when this thread could discuss actual upcoming content in a practical sense rather than in a philosophical sense because this content cycle is now more than 6 months behind schedule.

    It has nothing to do with Blizzard being behind schedule. It just has to do with information being released about the expansion. Threads that are more chat rooms then threads always lose focus when there is nothing on-topic to discuss.

    When you stop with this "oh we are 6 months behind we should have everything by now"? During 10.0 launch you will expect 10.1 released and 10.2 revealed already?

    Things were delayed. It's not first time in history things were delayed. They won't speed things up and launch Dragonflight 6 months before current plan.

    The lack of information on the Dracthyr has everything to do with the work in rehauling them or adding more customization to them. So if you complained about them on social media, and are wondering where that blogpost is... there you go.

    I would expect a whole new body shape for the dragons, and/or a new body type for the visage forms. Or they are adding very very very barebones visage forms (horns and eyes) for the other races which would still take ages to do. (Imagine being the artist who is forced to add dragon horns to gnomes and goblins because a couple lore nerds SCREAMED about how necessary it is for their fantasy)

    Because half of you people refuse to acknowledge there's any delay at all. And don't get me started on the ones who are actually thanking Blizzard devs for being more cagey & secretive.

    Imagine being that artist 12 months from now when 95% of all Dracthyr characters made are just using human, blood/void elf or night elf visages anyway.

    The amount of disconnect from the "diehard" WoW fans and the casual player is insane. It is very obvious why Dracthyr are only humans and elves and they just... don't get it. Or think they matter enough to force artists to do trivial things that will have little output.

    We are refusing to acknowledge 9.1 and 9.2 were delayed? Could you point out who refuse that?

    Don't get me wrong, I despise humans and blood elves, but I don't fault them for adding so many varieties of Blood Elves.

    He didn't say that at all. He said people were refusing to acknowledge a delay. He never mentioned 9.1 or 9.2...that was you.

    Delay of what? What after 9.2 was delayed?

    Not necessarily. They still could have a blog post about their specs or some abilities or whatever, but at this point we know basically nothing about the class. Two months and we have nothing. It’s getting ridiculous. And I don't think it's because they're redesigning the race. I doubt they're going this far because of feedback.

    With their recent blog post mentioning the Druid and DK talent trees again, we won’t get any new information this week either. No idea what’s going on, but it’s pretty poor.

    Wow, how crazy and unpredictable that this testing cycle is similar in setup to the past 20 years of testing cycles. Wild. No idea what's going on.

    Cope: This is the most atypical the testing cycle has ever been. And based on what we've seen Dragonflight is the smallest expansion ever.
