Ideally I think every dungeon should have the Torghast/Visions treatment and scale from 1-5 players, but that's just one of many ways to satisfy that particular niche and not necessarily the best one.
    Yeah, would be great if people wouldn't repeat 1000x every bullshit said by Asmon or someone similar. But sadly this is world we live in.

    Btw, on PVP side you pretty much will get what you want with solo shuffle. I always avoided rated PVP, but I'll try first time.

    Solo dungeons would be really cool, maybe call them Delves like ESO? Make the bosses complicated and puzzle like.

    "little Timmy's guild cant afford to put aside a day for mythic plus dungeons"
    ok then little Timmy's guild needs to just not require it because lets be honest its only like world MAYBE 200 where it would be useful
    shit dude im in a heroic guild and we do mythic plus on fridays

    "youll need meta mdi comps"
    nope and never have needed that just look at the break the meta event

    people really do scream fire when they see a light

    because that stat stick trinket is super good from the dungeon compared to your BiS from the 5th boss
    this is the same screeching that came with the removal of the covenant lock with "people will change every boss"

    +20s will be a bitch to get for like 3 weeks in pugs but then they will be relatively easy to do
    those who arent socially inept will find them a bit easier to do just like they have for the last 6 years
    the only complaints will be from the people like cantrip

    Well, there you go, pre-expansion event testing.

    World of Warcraft is their biggest source of revenue. They're not going to do this so long as they don't have anything to replace that & that ain't happening until they figure out how to monetize overwatch porn

    "The Introductory Quest Line
    Elemental Storms in Badlands and Un’Goro.
    These Storms will change the surrounding area’s weather and enhance enemies with additional powers.
    The Return of Uldaman as a level 60 dungeon."

    So, do we think that "The Introductory Quest Line" means all of it, or do they literally mean ONLY the intro part of the full questline? Additionally, it would be cool for them to not test the other two Elemental Storms for funsies

    Dracthyr and the prepatch events aren’t coming with the launch of prepatch.

    They’re both coming in ‘stage 2’.
    Which is probably the 8th of November

    (SLs prepatch launched Oct 13ish with the prepatch event not starting until Nov 10th for reference… but we know prepatch is obviously gonna be shorter than SLs was.)

    That's a shame. But I guess it makes some sense what with the elemental stuff being tied to them waking up.

    Maybe that's phase 3 of the pre-patch?

    Phase 1, just the 10.0 patch.
    Phase 2, Dracthyr
    Phase 3, Events?

    Who knows.

    The datamined “what’s new” text I was talking about.
    Looks like they’re gonna launch DE, Events, and Uldaman at the same time.

    I do hope the delay between Phase 1 and 2 isn’t that long though. I’d prefer at most a week but I’m expecting two.

    Assuming they didnt change their mind about the event lasting two weeks I think we will have to just accept waiting those two weeks.

    In SL they switched both pre-expansion event and pre-season from 3 to 2 weeks, probably because all feels pretty dragged by week 3. But would be nice to start Evoker sooner (so week 1 - sorting out initial bugs, week 2 - evoker, week 4 - event).

    Even without event pre-patch will be pretty good trade - we lose KSM/PVP mounts, but gain talents on top of borrowed power (cause it works inside Shadowlands) + every content become fated for 5 weeks. I hope they change few minor stuff too to help people with meta achiev (for example reducing Venthyr party cooldown from weekly to daily).

    Oh come on. That was at most a -3/10.

    Though i'm confused it didn't occur to Mighty that saying "They have plans for the next 8 years" might not be quite the doom and gloom message he is imagining

    I believe someone said the green variant of the open world sets would be the unique rewards.
