    Oh, for me it dosn't really matter what comes out. I just want to be around when it does. Way more fun seeing everyones reaction in real time instead of reading through it later. And that also goes for the reactions to nothing coming out. That's what so fun in these seasons of hype and leaks: seeing reactions, being part of the event. As much as people crap on reaction vidoes and similar (and usually it is absolutely warrented crapping), seeing other peoples reaction to stuff is fun.

    Oh, and happy page 3100!

    They are not from the isles, they predate the WotA.

    They have been led there by a another wild god.

    I fully intend to play a Dracthyr Evoker main in DF unless something changes my initial HYPE. Most importantly, show me the Isles!

    I must say I've thoroughly enjoyed your transformation from suspected blizzard employee to full speed hopium/copium train! Never, ever change

    Give me the Evokers!

    I’ve played this game for a long time. Sure, there’s been some bumps along the way in terms of lesser expansions; however, I still find joy. Shadowlands was, and I say this calmly, an utter crapshoot that “could” have been great with all the HYPE but failed. Unlike many, I enjoyed BFA. So, for me, only Shadowlands (over the course of 16 years of playing) disappointed me. I can’t justify being pessimistic or angry at a game I love because of one expansion.

    TLDR; I am so pumped for Dragonflight Alpha, Datamining, etc. to start.

    At the rate the trees have been posted, I wouldn't hold out hope.

    Also I recall someone posting that some streamer or someone of some import implying that alpha will launch before all the trees are out.

    For me it was the other way round - BFA had so much potential but turned out to be super disappointing, especially the Sylvanas storyline. I'm so glad they managed to fix that with Shadowlands. Meanwhile, the only thing that was missing from Shadowlands was a Thros tier but maybe they saved that for a potential Lifelands expansion instead. And yeah, the start was rough gameplay wise thanks to covenants but that got solved with the ripcord.

    BFA had issues, certainly. Shadowlands had many as well. If the state of SL during 9.1.5 was in at launch, my mind would be very different. In terms of story, I could sit here all day and go back and forth with people on it (I won’t give my opinion on whether I thought it was good or not).

    If I remember correctly, all the new talent trees with the MoP revamp were previewed before alpha began with the exception of the monk class. But I think they dropped them either with or very shortly after BlizzCon so different situation we are dealing with now, for sure.

    Not exactly the best example, but these bonuses made mages pick CS regardless in 9.2.
    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.

    Why not? First build could be just Evoker. First build could be few classes that got talents revealed. Finally, they could just release classes without bothering to put blue post for everyone. There is no rule.

    I'll happily say that I thought the story of Shadowlands was lackluster. The cadence was ALL over the place and the resolutions were tepid at best. I can't say I felt strongly about BFA's story but my god did I love me some corruption gear

    Kind of a bad example tbh because Comet Storm still only was marginally better in ST and worse in AOE. Even then, it didn't revolve around the talent choice at all, because the effect wouldn't depend on you having the talent or not.

    The only thing I expect, no, can count on is that my copium tank will need to be re-filled at a minimum of 40 minutes from now.
