    Totally forgot that they had a “historian”, though I wouldn’t actually be surprised if they did there job really well and they did have a great data base but then people higher then them just don’t check it, or do check it and just don’t care.

    A lot of shadowlands feels like it’s stuff they couldn’t have possibly missed so instead they just ignored it.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    Here's the obvious, I guess:

    - Demon Hunter talents.
    - Final two dungeons.
    - Raid testing.
    - Any remaining professions specializations.
    - Additions to the HUD update.

    Here's what I'm hoping for on top of that:

    - MUSIC!
    - Surprise, Survival now has dual-wield!
    - Alpha is now Beta, get a key as a Twitch drop.
    1.) People shutting up about lore, claiming they know more than Blizzard will ever will
    2.) DH talents/skills
    3.) Beta announcement (I don't see that happening though)
    4.) Some form of end game testing so we know what to expect (will it be more like ZM, or more like the covenant zones with boring WQ's)

    I can definitely relate to that a little too well.

    I think these are two different departments. They do have an archival department with "historians" that archives the history of the company and handles material related to it. They were a very busy department for Blizzcon. Besides that, they did have a head of lore. Did they actually listen to them? Doubt it. Elder scrolls has a head of lore and you can see how busy they are.

    Who did you hear it from? Last week wasn't the case simply because of delays. This week should be different no?

    My bet:
    They preparing beta for next week, so small patch this week maybe.

    Doubt it. They unload content whenever and the content unlocked is as big as Blizzard can pop out.

    What's weird? Last week patch was also not on Tuesday. Delays happen every PTR.
    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.

    It'll probably be every wednesday from now on because of last week's delay. They want equal amount of time to pass between phases, they won't do 1 day less just to go back to Tuesday schedule.

    True. Also last week was a massive build, so I get it.

    Max just said tomorrow morning, so yup.

    When will they do something with druid tree? Holy shit other classes get constant updates and druid has got absolutely nothing. The disparity is insane.

    Enchanting, hello? Haven't seen much about that at all yet. Like where's the zing?

    Have they implemented some kind of threads of fate? Or something for alt leveling in general? Imo it should be exactly as fast as it's in SL after 9.1.5 + option for slower 60-70 leveling through old world.

    I don't know but I am planning to level at least a few alts by just gathering.
