    That'd defeat the entire purpose of the class. If anything, players should be locked into the actual dragon form when in combat, akin to Worgen.

    Right after they let Worgen enter combat in human form.

    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.

    Wasn't it already confirmed we're going back to the Forbidden Reach? I remember hearing that in an interview a few months ago though I could be wrong.

    Dragonmaws have bluish grey skin, while Black Iron has a more Brown-Blackish Grey skin.

    Yep. Dragonmaw still have unique skin tones and unique glowing eyes. They just lost the tattoos.

    Is Blizzard going to attend Gamescom this year?

    I want to know the release date.

    I would imagine if scaleface is correct and the expac is due november. Release date announcement somewhere this month would not be unlikely.

    No worries, that guy seems to be stuck in the past and still thinks that current Blizzard (or NewBlizzard! as I call them :P) is working exactly the same way as they did during wotlk including scrapping content that's already finished or throwing away zones after their initial usage even though Steve Danuser already confirmed we will go back there. But maybe he thinks because the stuff isn't in the patch notes it's scrapped haha.

    Yep, Steve already said as much in the T&E podcast interview thingy on twitter space. No clue why we are even discussing this tbh.

    I could see them revealing the release date once we get to Beta in 3 weeks? Basically revealing a roadmap like they had for Alpha with different phases for leveling stress testing, pvp, m+ and maybe raid testing aswell as a pre-patch and release date at the end?

    Possibly. Although they didnt reveal a roadmap? For example, I don't know whats going to be tested next week and the week after. The only thing they said was that they would have a new build each week, but thats not really a roadmap.

    They posted one with the first build =)

    Here is a breakdown for what players can initially expect to see in the first phase of Dragonflight alpha:

    Phase 1 Zone Experience: The Azure Span
    New Race and Class: Dracthyr Evoker
    Dragonriding
    New Interface HUD Revamp
    Talent Revamps for Death Knight, Druid, Hunter, Priest, and Rogue
    Professions: Alchemy and Blacksmithing
    Full details on the following phases will be shared as we get closer to them, but here are the current plans for the zones:

    Phase 2 Zone Experience: The Forbidden Reach
    Phase 3 Zone Experiences: The Forbidden Reach and Waking Shores
    Phase 4 Zone Experiences: The Forbidden Reach and Thaldraszus
    Phase 5 Zone Experiences: The Forbidden Reach and Ohn’ahran Plain
    Phase 6+ All zones are expected to be playable

    B. Players have a GO GO GO!! mentality right now and some are leaving dungeons if they pull extra mobs or don't do a skip or die when they chain pull
    For real? That sounds aweful lol. I'm wondering how Blizzard could aim to fight this behavior. Maybe removing the m+ timer or (which they won't do haha) banning of details? You can hate all you want againt Diablo Immortal, but it's actually refreshing to not have logs/dmg meters and people seem much chill there even though it's a hack and slay mmo lol (although fair enough, I only played a bit during release so that may have changed).

    Anyways, atleast in a testing environment people should chill out - this isn't a demo ...

    I don't think they are going to be there. But after Legion set the precedent it makes sense for people to ask.

    For Legion they announced whole expansion there. Right now all their big projects are already announced and even have release windows. They can easily wait for next Blizzcon before announcing anything new.

    Its the logical result of turning M+ into an e-sport.
    'Normal' players see actual 'good' players do highly optimised and practised routes and want to be like them and repeat what they do without the coordinated and practiced group used during the MDI.

    Whenever a game shows players how they 'should play' more casual players will try to emulate it and fail. No different from LoL where silver/gold players pretend they are playing on the Worlds stage.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Blizzcon 2023 is a long way off tbh. D4 may well be out before Blizzcon. An exact release date will probably not come until after beta has launched. But they do have other properties they can present there.

    Nah, most likely survival game and 11.0 will be main reveals for Blizzcon 23. They need strong set for return.

    For gamescom I expect heavy Dragonflight promotion, release date (15th November?) included. Even more likely Beta start, event lines up with end of Phase 6 of Alpha.
