    WoW is running on custom engine, on 20 year old spaghetti code and made with custom tools. You can bet your ass that any developer, no matter how experienced, will have a long acclimation period.
    Over 1.5y of acclimation? We all know that WoW is old, but these numbers are an ass pull. They would not be able to so shit if new workers had this much learning, because people come and go all the time.

    With how long Dispersion was the final talent, I am kinda used to it.


    Idol of Y'Shaarj: Shadowfiend causes you to gain a benefit based on your target's current emotional state.

    Ok, this one sounds hilarious.

    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.

    1 to 2 classes on the first Friday each month, and once they all are done, the Alpha starts.

    Wow, Dragonflight 2024 release confirmed??!

    The fact they went full force on the old God stuff is glorious
    Interesting to see a corruption make it as a talent and I can't wait to try different builds on the mythictrap calculator since wowhead will need 5 reposts and 3 articles before making one

    It's a downwards trend. Obviously the next first friday of the next month has 0 talent trees. 2 > 1 > 0.
    I will not reply to posts that are non-constructive or contain flaming and/or trolling.

    They don't need to be out before alpha. The vast majority of people won't have access to alpha.

    Anyways, the Shadow Priest "Idol of X" talents look super fun! Would love to take all of them haha.

    But, I guess that would be madness, right? Right!?
    Yeah the Idol choices both look kinda neat. I'd probably go N'Zoth but I need to see what Y'Shaarj's does.

    I think it's halving the amount, so next week we will get the shared talent tree and one of the specs of a specific class, after which we will get one spec tree, then half the talents of one tree, quarter of a talent tree, etc.
    Once we reach a single talent being revealed we will then start going into developer livestream where they constantly iterate on how much speed rogue sprint will give.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Once more it is proven that Shadow Priests ultimately fail in containing the Void, succumb to the whispers, and become utterly crazy and unstable.

    Only a select few mortals are allowed to control the Void with mastery and lucidity.

    The Warlock class has a void creature as a servant so it isn't as rare as your fanfic makes it out to be.

    I hope they give demo locks perma Doomguard/Infernal again. Or at least give us viable builds to use more than only the felguard.

    It was your beloved Blizzard that stated that Alleria Windrunner of the Ren'dorei is the first mortal to successfully defy the Shadows' whispers.

    Both Shadow Priests and Warlocks are paltry novices who cannot compare to the Ren'dorei.

    The really missed the opportunity Legion provided of expanding demons to a hunter-like system. They did a little with glyphs but there really should be more customization with the pets.

    How so? All the Idol talent sound like "mastery and lucidity" to me.

    You can literally summon a "Thing from Beyond" that serves you. It used to be a minion of N'zoth and now the Priest can control it. You can also control Void Tendrils and Lashers, both Old God minions.

    So you admit you were wrong because a novice is successfully containing the void.

    And we care about that because…?

    I hope these few select mortals aren't able to become spriests because otherwise following your logic they can't control the void and blow up the entire existence. Another reason to wipe those few select from the face of Azeroth once and for all.
