    Sure but reputation factions very rarely are removed (only ones I can remember are the vanilla ones for ZG and Wrathion from MoP).

    Oh the grind was awful but the story unlocks were great

    Take MoP but with things like emissaries and m+ and you get a very very good expansion

    I don't think FOMO applies here unless those specific dailies are removed later on/ rewards the dailies offer are removed later. Then I can understand.

    We still have more than 2 months before S1 start for M+ testing (and I think they could gather more people to test M+ between pre-patch and expac launch than now), but I hope we start pre-patch event soon. I'm starting to think it will be barebones like Shadowlands one sadly.

    They weren't so confident when it was current content.

    Because you actually can't. Doing the content at the start of the expansion is a qualitatively different experience.

    And no, rushing through everything at the end is not how WoW should be at the start. It's a markedly worse experience. Your demands are completely absurd, no matter the size of the studio. Maybe you should stop treating games as a chore to finish as quickly as possible.

    They were aiming to have them back up at noon today, either they'll come back in the next few hours or they've had to delay it again.

    The last month of an expac is how WoW should be at start. And every following month should be like that. Every month should bring content and gameplay updates.

    But that is just too much asked from that poor multi billion company that has hundreds of developers and a larger credit list of a new expac than a star wars movie.
    Name one mmo that does that

    Also if you started shadowlands in the final few months you missed out on a lot
    Ignoring the stuff that gets replaced like end of season rewards

    You missed
    All the dungeons in m+
    The maw
    Korthia
    All of torghast
    Vast majority of campaign content
    And millions in passive gold generation

    That ignores also shards of domination and all of the raids before the fated syste

    Hey, I got a Beta invite. Time to try out dracthyr visages in-game! No point spoiling the rest of it at this point, lol.

    I won a key in a giveaway (go me!) and have logged in to the beta, is there a way I can test things like Dragonriding and evokers without completing quests? I don’t want to ruin it for myself but still want to test features and provide feedback on that. The max level sever won’t let me leave the capital city so can’t do it on that realm.

    You could do the bare minimum and still check dragonriding; you get your first mount fairly fast, just ignore every quest that is not marked as part of the campaign until you reach Alex. Still to test dragonriding means to collect the glyphs so you will spoil that part since that will have you exploring the entire isles.

    As for evoker, use the max level server and do dungeons?

    Did literally everyone get the beta? I got an invite this morning.
