    My guess is on 10.1 information dump, since that PTR is likely to go up any week now once 10.0.7 is released next week.
    I doubt that, from what I gathered on Towellie stream it's something more involving. Imo it's either 10.0.7 surprise drop (very unlikely, although EU has very suspicious two long maintenances this week) or some event connected to WoW. Or maybe you are partially right and it will be 10.1 reveal + some event for stream.

    It could absolutely be an event. I think they want to engage as much as possible with streamers right now, to pull people into DF.

    But at the very least it's probably likely the streamers will know everything and share different bits of information on their streams, coinciding with Blizzard's own info dump.

    With how the PTR is structured right now, we could have a 10.1 PTR while the 10.0.7 PTR is still running as well.
    But your duty to Azeroth is not yet complete. More is demanded of you... a price the living cannot pay.

    I don't think so.

    Its probably something huge, but then again, its most likely nothing.

    Probably another watch streamer x hours and get this type of thing.

    Do you genuinely think people are gonna play a game without all their transmogs, mounts, achievements, characters etc.?

    Sequels to MMOs never work and might as well be new IPs.
    The only way I could see a WoW 2 working would be for it to be a new engine so you could get stuff like action combat, physics, etc, but old assets carry over. You can still wear the same transmog and pepe on your head and totems on your back and ride the same mount you've been riding. So it'd be more of a revamp rather than a totally new game. The big problem with this is that old content - questlines and raids - would not be able to be carried over, since it would be impractical to go through the game and update all the mobs and raids to account for a new combat system, so in WoW 2 you would only have access to content made after the switch over.

    I read War Crimes and what happened to the Heart was never mentioned. Presumably it began decomposing, was burned, and the ashes either buried or dumped into the ocean, or maybe sealed away in a vault in Dalaran or back into the Vale.

    I didn't say 10.0.7 would release this week. I said it'll release next week, with a 10.1 info dump either this week or the next being likely.

    Edit

    I think Spring technically counts from 20 March - 21 June, with Summer being from then until 23 September.

    The Dragonflight roadmap lists 10.0.7 and 10.1 as releasing in the Spring, unless I'm reading it incorrectly.

    So 10.0.7 may be in two weeks, not one, on the 21st of March.

    That would leave them about a 13 week window before Summer begins.

    10.0.5 hit PTR on the 19th of December IIRC, and was released on January 24. So about a 5 week PTR cycle.

    10.0.7 hit PTR on the 31st of January, I think. So a week's gap.

    If 10.0.7 goes live next week, it'll be 6 weeks. 6 or 7 weeks seems fine since the patch is a little meatier.

    But 10.1 is definitely a bigger patch, and needs more testing. I think it's very possible it hits PTR within 3 weeks from today, possibly even this week but probably more likely the next two weeks.

    This is the issue when trying to create a new and potentially better game.
    It is not a new WOW expansion, it is a NEW wow game people want.
    Ergo if you want to keep your progress on your old game, you should play WOW 1 - with all the expansions.. Not have all your progress on WOW 2 - a totally new game, that many people want.

    Next class won't be until 12.0 at the earliest. Blizzard could even do something like class skins or new specs to push back a new class even further. While the Tinker/Mechanic is an inevitable future class, it could be years before it becomes playable.

    Out of embarrassment or what? Did content creators think it was coming this week?

    I'm not expecting 10.0.7 until the end of the month. It's a meatier patch than 10.0.5 and still doesn't feel entirely ready to ship, plus the heritage questlines have yet to be tested (I'm guessing those will come up this week). 10.1 is tough after that, I definitely think they'll want to ship before Diablo 4 releases but assuming a release a week or two before that game launches, it's going to get a little under two months of PTR time which feels very breakneck. The ~60 day patch cycle is very impressive but I hope it's being built on a sustained foundation and the team isn't getting overworked to right the ship.

    Nobody thought 10.0.7 was coming this week? I meant because I saw my name on the thread

    I mean the unreal engine is great for what it is. But i think a lot of the games that use it look way to similar. They don't have soul, they don't have an artistic expression. They just look realistic and highly rendered and thats about it.
    I highly prefer wows unique aestetic to stay the way it is.

  17. #2017
    10.0.7 next week... Good one. I mean I main ret and it would be great to get that totally broken rework next week, but yeah, that's not happening. They will need at least two more weeks to balance the spec. At least. My guess is: three weeks from now. At the earliest.

    Made an account to post this here, there is this leak from a year ago, witch is kind of accurate, but not exactly. Example he predicted white transmogs.

    Sure, be he also failed to predict completely basic stuff like why we are there, or who we fight? The mechanics of why we are able to finally find the Dragon Isles is wrong, the premise of who we fight is wrong, the premise of a stripped back covenant is wrong.
    Being extremely generous here we could argue that plans have changed. I could maybe see the reason we find the Dragon Isles having changed. But no chance the enemies we fight there being different. The zones are designed to accomodate elemental forces, and besides Brackenhide the zones don't have any indication of having been made to accomodate Death Themed enemies.
    The world revamp dream will never die!
