    They didn't find out shit. There is no time travel element to midnight. No clue why people are misunderstanding this

    Something definitely happened there, I listened to Metzen again and he doesn't mention time travel, so either some of us got confused by the "return back to" + "tribes" combo, or we're missing something?

    Metzen promised me something epic : It was just anduin whining in the sand.
    As a complete trilogy, I do think it's epic. But just tWW, not really.

    Yeah it works better as a trilogy and they probably were aware of that! I'm really excited for the nerubian and xal'atath lore though

    Yeah, real underwhelming to be given three expansion announcements at once.

    /s

    Lol are you for real? What more do you want?

    "No big feature" idk I would consider the heroic class talents a big feature. It is literally class skins.
    Did you see the example they showed of how for warrior it makes their skills lightning infused? Their stormbolt is aoe now even. And 3 per class, 2 per spec, gunna be interesting to see what they all are. I am very nervous but also excited for warlock...
    I want my fucking metamorph back...

    And TWW goes directly into a Void expansion when the Nerubians have a deal with Xal'atath, so there's a clear narrative connection already.


    Seems more like they realised a single expansion simply isn't enough to tell a proper story, so they deliberately stretched it out over several. TWW is then act 1, Midnight is act 2, TLT is act 3.

    Calling TWW filler is then like calling the first third of LotR filler. You don't go full ham in the first act.
    I know it's a change in philosophy but we used to get act 1, 2 and 3 in one expansion. I'm sorry but I do feel underwhelmed for paying 50 bucks for just act 1

    Honestly, I think it's just the useage of "old world" that probably threw people off.
    To the people who have wanted a world revamp of some description for a long time that phrase means world revamp, though coupling it with what I assume to be a joke on how long it has been since Silvermoon was relevant probably threw some people off as they took it more literally.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    3 expansion announcements where 2 where just a name drop and a slight hint at the story (WHICH IM HYPED FOR!).

    What I want is some big feature like player housing or whatever.

    Maybe trolls too, but then again, I don't think the Amani would lift a finger to help even if the world was at stake.
    Please Blizzard, don't Villain-bat the trolls. It's bad enough most named troll characters are dead.
    I don't play WoW anymore smh.

    We were always going to get new talents, so I dont see it as a big feature. I do still think it can be an absolute W with them being focused on class identity, just not a big feature.

    You're still getting a full expansion. It's just not the full narrative.

    If you're buying a doorstopper released in 3 volumes, you're not paying the price of a single book for it either.

    I think the issue is that you're not getting things you told yourself absolutely must happen. It's not that there's any issue with what is coming, but that your expectations were totally off.

    Warbands and Delves definitely seem to be more significant features, too. Solo open world adventuring being recognised as an officiall progression track seems rather significant.

    Wonder what Varodoc thinks about the new Alleria look.

    It's more then new talents, because these talents have an effect over your entire class, plus it's a new section, not just more added to your spec.

    So now you have.

    Your class talents
    Your spec talents
    And your choice of 2 heroic talent trees

    I do not. But we all already know the answer anyways.

    I dont disagree, I did try to keep my expectations low but metzen hyped me up :P.

    Delves isnt a new feature really, is it? we've had similar stuff before and just to be clear, I fucking LOVE these, I think DF not having any of these "scenarios" is such a missed opportunity. I really look forward to having them as an evergreen feature, but again, not a big NEW feature imo.

    Warbands is nice sure, but I pretty much only play 1 or at most 2 classes anyway so its not something big for me.
