    Unhappy Tier sets NOT returning in 9.1, raid sets will use existing legendary armor models.

    This is so, SO underwhelming.

    Not only will we not be seeing class sets return in 9.1, but the raid armor sets are simply going to be a transmog-able version of the legendary sets that we've seen already.

    No new conduits either. No new customizations. No new heritage sets.

    Here's the interview on WoWhead: https://www.wowhead.com/news=321033....-mega#comments
    Kupo.

    Oh how I wish I could say I'm surprised...

    Honestly who needs new conduits when there are plenty of them already out there that nobody uses. Rebalancing some of the underused conduits I think would be time better spent anyway.

    Colour me unsurprised.

    This expansion is just as bad as the last 3-4 have been. Not sure why anyone believed it would be any better?

    This game really has a habit of being good at the start, sucking all through the middle, then getting good at the end. Every expansion recently.

    My questions if that's true is: Why bother, then?

    We are getting some new covenant transmog sets and mounts though.
    So, lets not be too harsh. We are still in quarantine, working from home and all that.

    Even if it's disappointing, it is understandable. We also know they had several people leave for different studios, so i'm sure they have been re-organizing.

    I think no new race customizations is more disappointing. That was supposed to be an expansion fearure, like allied races.

    the legendary sets actually look awesome.

    it makes sense they use it. its torghast/maw themed. currently the full set is unobtainable anyway.

    it also works the same way its worked since multiple expansions though. the nighthold sets were based on some pieces that were obtainable in EN.

    There was a set for each class though, not 4 total.

    Makes sense, I never expected Tier sets in the first patch. Originally there was going to be no plan for them but the outcry for them made them change their mind. This change happened way too far into development to see in the first raid after Nathria.

    Stop using covid as an excuse. If they didn't provide their employees with a means to do what they need to from home, it's on them as they're not hurting in terms of profit like the restaurants and other things are. That tired sad excuse needs to stop.

    Especially when you compare their output to Square Enix who have been in lockdown much much longer in Japan. With a smaller team too.
    Kupo.

    No, it isn't understandable anymore.

    Delays would be acceptable in this case. Launching new content without new rewards is just garbage. It immediately kills that content - No good reward = Nobody does it.

    Not everyone likes covenants, and no, Quarantine is no longer an excuse. Blizzard has had a year to prepare to work from home at this point, which they started off by telling us it wouldn't affect them that bad in the first place - They should be capable of it by now.

    i agree with this sentiment so much, they have more ample chance to adapt to the pandemic than other industries.

    The guy that did all the covenant ability animations and worked in some class design, i don't recall the name. I have heard of more, but didn't keep track. I know quite a few went to dreamhaven, the new Morheim studio too.

    They tried to delete the middle patch in WiD, it was a disaster. I think they recognize the burnout cycle now and are ok with subs dipping for a middle patch and coming back for the long, relaxing last tier.

    How about making sure the middle part is good too instead?

    ah I found him. Looks like he was only an effect guy though if his art station is any thing to go by so you wouldn't think that would effect sets at all.

    other then him though i could only find one other dev leaving recently so It would seem unlikely that the impact would be large.

    I mean, if they’re gonna skimp on anything it’s the middle tier when subs are traditionally lowest. Also factor in the pandemic, I’m sure productivity has suffered a bit.
