The playerbase is not always consistent, and they're not often very articulate, but there are many complaints regarding the current state of WoW which are entirely valid.
    Individuals on the forum, maybe. The average opinion of the forum as a whole? At most, it's an understatement.

    There are many valid complaints, but compared to all the baseless whining, they're a small minority.

    It's not clear how they get their physical bodies, so we can't rule it out. For that matter, we only see the gestation process of one world soul. We don't actually know how they were made. And technically, they aren't born from world souls. They are one and the same.

    Yeah, I get they don't want to drag these events, but Dracthyr alone should be week 2.

    There could be one positive from this. During XP buff start they said: "Don’t delay. The winds will shift once more when the new dracthyr Evoker becomes playable during the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, and the experience buff will no longer be available."

    And have XP normalization to linear for 50-60 aka massive XP nerf in pre-patch. So it could be best window to level all 50-60 chars.

    Talents are going live next week. So many classes still have significant bugs in their talents though. They probably need the time before they have the events live to make sure everything actually works.

    If this testing is like all others then the bugs are likely already fixed on their internal build, and are just not pushed to the playable version yet.

    The previous mention of it was that it would disappear when the Dracthyr was out, so likely in the second phase.

    Anyone know the status of white/grey item transmog? I thought it was supposed to be coming with DF but unless I am missing something I didn't see it enabled in the beta.

    Oh god the covenant discourse
    We've had that stuff with BFA and even Legion to an extent just with different systems and I'm sooooo glad to be done with it

    Patch actually coming out 25-10. Everyone act surprised!
    I will not reply to posts that are non-constructive or contain flaming and/or trolling.

    Havoc DH is a good example of how the spec performs well number wise, but the design philosophy is shit.

    - We now need to spend talent points, multipe sometimes to get what we had as base in SL, which is the lowest point in DHs history. There is not anything new nor there is addition that synergize with the way Havoc plays. Their entire approach is so cheap that they take an existing talent/skill and make 2-3 talents out of it.
    - We now need to sacrifice utility for DPS, e.g., no stun whatnot. This mutilates the fun out of the spec, given Havoc does not have as much utility as some other classes have.

    ----

    https://www.wowhead.com/news/retribu...nt-tree-329400


    To put it bluntly, Retribution's talent trees are not in a good spot - we've had mostly the same issues for essentially the entirety of Alpha/Beta, there's been few changes made, and even less communication about them.
    I followed beta, this is a fucking fact. They ignored the feedback.

    From the same link.

    Before I get into the details about the tree, I want to take a moment to talk about what this article isn't about. Firstly, it's not about whether or not Ret will be a good spec in Dragonflight. A poorly designed spec can still be tuned to be strong, and a well designed spec can be undertuned and never brought.
    ----

    And for those who think I main Retri and I am crying. I main Havoc and I stuck with Havoc throughout SL. Right now, Havoc is in a good spot numbers wise, yet, I can see crystal clear that Blizzard's approach to Havoc talent design is just fucking cheap.

    I've seen nothing but silence outside of users going "so...what's the situation" so your guess is as good as mine.

    Was this ever an actual Blizzard announced feature anywhere, or was it just something that was datamined on wowhead where they made an article hyping it up as just speculation?

    Blizzard did say it would be coming during an interview.

    Also, they actually did say they wanted to increase the character limit per account with Dragonflight, but so far I couldn't find anything about that in the patch notes? Let's hope that's not another "promise that didn't make it in".
