Was Legion planned last minute?
We all know something went horribly wrong with Warlords of Draenor to cause them to change the end boss last minute, and scrap most of the announced patches/content.

I feel that the expansion after WoD would've been that ogre continent they mentioned, but the backlash from the AU Universe caused them to change their mind.
>>
It wouldn't surprise me. Nothing about it comes off as well thought out or planned, it's mostly a mashup of unrelated themes with nostalgia sprinkled in.
>>
Legion, believe it or not, was planned during warlords development. This was confirmed at Blizzcon in 2013

>>323284487
What went horribly wrong with WoD was timegating content and forcing you to do garrisons, and disabling flight at launch.

People need shit to do, and reason to do it other than "Because if I don't I get fucked on progression."

Wrath knew what was up. You can cry casual on it all you want, but you had something to do that was FUN and not forced. And the forced shit had a way around it. Didn't like dailies? Run dungeons with a rep tabard. Don't like dungeons? Do dailies. Don't like either? Convert your raid tokens.

PvP was accessible to all in WotLK, raids were puggable and servers would pug. Hardcore raiders had a reason to pug old content for mounts and achievements, dungeon gear could get you in to pugs, and was enough to entry level you in to a raiding guild.

Exploring was fun and the world was beautiful, there was reason to camp and gather resources, and there was human interaction wherever the fuck you went.

The worst part of WotLK was the year long content drought while Cata was finished. But even during the drought you had shit to do and the content was interesting enough and challenging enough to keep everyone going until Cata.
>>
>>323284487
the boss was changed last minute because blizzard thought people would get bored of another orc raid boss after Garrosh, Blackhand etc

they probably always planned gul'dan to be the greater enemy out of the iron horde and for his story to include the burning legion, so having archimonde be the last boss was a convenient addon as a prelude to legion

the only thing that's probably done last minute is grom being pulled as the last boss and archimonde being put in

judging by the fact you only spent 22.5k on your garrison

roll more alts, level them to 100, set up their garrisons

Actually what you're seeing there is 11 characters with garrisons, 8 of which are level 100 with level 3 inns, a few treasure hunters each, level 3 salvage yards, level 2 jc huts and a level 3 barracks (for extra followers). Most of them are still on level 1 shipyards

The problem as I see it is the really good gold earning ones such as champions honor, blingtron's vault, medallion of the legion and elixir of rapid mind just come in so infrequently even with all these garrisons that the level 3 shipyward actually seems to be the most reliable source of large gold pools

Unfortunately you really need an oil rig otherwise your alts are always fairly short

>>323286334
ahh those were the days. the 10 man was pure elite sex with 10 of the best, handpicked from the guild.
as an elemental shaman, i could actually top the dps meters in 10 man.

25 man was pure shit, getting all the good trinkets and rings last, harder to get the achievements because of time and planning constraints.
after Wotlk there was no reason for me to hardcore raid anymore, i felt like i had did it all, shit, i was satisfied after progressing through vanilla AQ 40 and Naxx 40.

Mmmmm dem buffets. ICC had great fights and I think everyone can remember the mechanics for them. They were fun and challenging.

>>323286334
Nice bait. I'll take it.

You could do the regular dungeons to gear for heroic dungeons which geared your for 10N. 10N gear was good enough to pug ICC25 up to Saurfang. 10N was enough for 10H and regular 25N. 10H was enough for 25N and parts of 25H. 25N was enough for 25H.

And no shit you needed to do the content to progress. Are you retarded? If you tried to go full dungeon heroic in to 25H of course you'll be fucked. Don't be retarded, progression flowed nicely and was easy to understand. 5N > 5H > 10N > 10H/25N >10H/25N > 25H.

And if you want to sit around and tell me WotLK had a single bad progression raid outside of TotC then you can go fuck yourself with a rod of molten steel. TotC wasn't even bad, but compared to Naxx, which allowed people to see content that only the elite few saw in Vanilla, Ulduar which replaced hardcore mode in favor of meta achievements that kept players visiting well after ICC came out and beyond, and ICC, it was really lackluster but still memorable.

Dungeons weren't anti-social facerolls, you had challenge modes to prevent exactly that, and it rewarded you with a set that only cool dudes had.

Which all got trumped by LFR gear. So nobody bothered with them except for the first two weeks LFR was disabled after launch.

And if you mean Tanaan, too little too late. Leaving the game content starved until the very last patch doesn't make the whole expansion good.

What exactly was 'bad' about them? Were they too easy? Too fun? Did you not go for the hardcore modes if you wanted a challenge or try the achievements? Bad is a very subjective term.

And nigger it is not a meme that less than 10% of the player base cleared naxx in vanilla. I never said people couldn't get in there, I said that ICC naxx gave people a chance to see content that the majority was never able to.

Some people, including myself, never saw the point of them. And I'm one of the fags that hung around Ironforge/Orgrimmar showing off their e-peen back in the day cause I was also retarded.

Yet I never saw a point for achievements, cause there was no tangible benefit in gameplay. Reputation was more intoxicating when people could recognize you by your name alone.

I still get what your point is though, but not everyone will.
>>
>>323288859
I meant Ulduar hard modes. Which could not have been made into a thing without the achievement system. And raid achievements now fulfill that role after Ulduar but to a much lower extent.

I do agree multiple raid difficulty settings are a terrible fucking idea though.
>>
>>323288860
But those are alternative ways of gearing that's all I was suggesting. Why do you need to deconstruct my post like that?

You were 100% required to do them until Timeless Isles came out. Don't even try to fucking pretend this wasn't a thing when it was one of the most talked-about issues back then.

>If all you did was LFR everyone was gonna laugh at you.
Not the point. LFR was a major feature and it was nothing but dog shit. On top of that, the increased accessibility further diluted the feeling of progression you would normally get from being a hardcore raider. There was no reason for me to strive to see the "true" endgame when most of it was already laid right at my feet.

>Timeless Isle "Epics" weren't even good, not even as an entrance to raiding set.
>>323288293
Not the point. Welfare epics were just another way to pander to casuals(a running theme in this expansion, in case you haven't figured it out) and make them feel like they were special. Just like LFR, it further diluted the feeling of progression you would normally get from obtaining epics legitimately. These kinds of ketchup mechanics also contribute to the whole "Play the patch, not the expansion" problem that's continued into WoD.

>Dungeons weren't anti-social facerolls, you had challenge modes to prevent exactly that, and it rewarded you with a set that only cool dudes had.
Most people were facerolling challengemodes, FYI. When I can easily pug something, it's not far from being completely trivial.Also, making the absolute top tier of content challenging doesn't do a whole lot else for the rest of the game.

>And Pandaria was one of the best designed maps and interesting places in the game.

>>
>>323289274
>You were 100% required to do them until Timeless Isles came out.
That's actually a lie and a great way to spot the people who skipped MoP.

You were required to do golden lotus only at the start of the expansion, which got patched after all the complaining. The later reps that would be "required" were like the shado pan, raid related for raiders to supplement their drops and no dailies or grind attached to them, only the raid, and then minor reps for casuals to do like the kiron tor offensive or lion's landing. Which were not necessary and gave gear as an intro to raiding that was an actual alternative to LFR.
>>
>>323289506
>Because you were implying they were comparable to MoP's

Well what were MoPs? Because all I remember was crafting, world bosses or rep grinding so you had the appropriate rep to buy valor gear
>>
>>323289379
>Even when I was in full MC epics in vanilla I thought I was in welfare gear because Naxx was alreadyo ut
The main difference is that hardcore raiding was more or less the only place to get epics. Even if you didn't think it was special, a lot of people did because, not only were they an upgrade stat-wise, they were also an upgrade visually, both in their "quality" and in their actual physical look, which was a step up from the rags you were wearing while on your trek to 60.

Post-cata, the only thing left to make you feel like your character is actually progressing are the numbers, exactly like you said, which is the most sterile and fucking dull form of progression imaginable.
>>
>>323289854
MoP didn't have a garrison. That alone should show you the biggest difference.

Doesn't matter when the development started when they had to pull devs off it to fucking put flying back in the game. how many months did we fucking wait for them to fix little spots in the sky that would just kill your character because "lol flying was intended." they made so many things worse caving in and putting flying into draenor.

So which is it, kiddo? You also had to grind a few of the other ones for supplemental gear, gear rerolls, and profession recipes.

Again, this was a huge point of contention for the playerbase for the longest time, and if all you're going to do is plug your ears and pretend it didn't happen, I'm not even going to bother trying to convince you.
>>
>>323289854
Those were the same plus H Scenarios, but you actually had to do something for them instead of sitting on a Garrison.

They weren't that far apart. In any case, you were required to do dailies for a decent portion of the expansion(not "a very small period"), which contradicts your statement that you were never forced to do them ever. So, again I ask, which is it, you big gay baby cunt?

And this is only one issue I had with MoP. I listed a whole bunch of other reason why I thought MoP was worthless garbage that you seem to have just forgotten?????

4.2 was great with heroic Rag being one of the best bosses in the wow history
After wotlk killed old zones cata at least tried to fix them
>>
>>323291250
I'm telling you a simple fact

It was no different to anything you did in Vanilla, BC, WoTLK, Cata or MoP. If you go back to Vanilla and BC in particular you would have actually found there is significantly less to do then there is now

And no it was not compelling content either
>>
>>323291478
>if you go back to older versions of the game you'l see they are less developed
>so it's ok to get a newer version lacking development too

You are supposed to move forward, not stagnate. Why do you keep defending this shit?
>>
>>323290881
Raiding is the only valid point on this list, and we're going to be stuck with that shit for another 8 months or so.

Everything else is stuff everybody did within the first few months, recycled content(fucking mythic dungeons, really?) or it's arbitrary busywork that gives nothing of value like pet battles or apexis/oil dailies.
>>
>>323291680
If you only want to raid that's your problem. This has been the same forever.

A new raid comes out. Players beat it within a week and then they complain there's nothing to do again.

Every single fucking patch since Blackwing Lair, 11 years ago
>>
The real problem of wow is that we are too powerfull. Remember the vanilla trailer. There was this powerless drawf with a bear. No edgy armor set. No powerfull super power just him and his bear in the snow. We wont have that feeling anymore
>>
It has even more pandering than Orclords had. Looks like a rushed project to me.
>>
Reminder we lost Maraad just to further the temporary, rushed (and not to mention cut story arc) on a mary-sue Yrel. Lets not forget losing the Alliance's admiral when Nazgrim at least gets a raid encounter.
>>
>>323291174
>you were required to do dailies for a decent portion of the expansion(not "a very small period"), which contradicts your statement that you were never forced to do them ever. So, again I ask, which is it, you big gay baby cunt?
You were never "100% required to do them". If you wanted to do dailies at the start you had to do golden lotus rep to unlock them and golden lotus became irrelevant once 5.2 hit. Which is it? It's never. You were never required to do dailies, not even for rep.

>And this is only one issue I had with MoP. I listed a whole bunch of other reason why I thought MoP was worthless garbage that you seem to have just forgotten?????
I don't care about them? LFR is trash and challenge modes don't even give gear. I'm the faggot talking about alternate forms of gearing, just saw you blatantly lying in one post and corrected you. Get over it.

I play what my friends play. Nothing is more boring than a MMO you play alone.

Granted, only a few people I know still play XIV at this point so there's no real point in continuing to play. Especially now that my raid group is dead, and a majority of the raid community is concentrated on one server.

I haven't played WoW since shortly after Cataclysm came out... wonder if it would be fun to try again.

You wouldn't have it even with a new franchise as long as Blizzard's the one making it. Blizzard is literally the DBZpowerlevelfags of vidya in how they make games. Everything has to be bigger and better and more shiny.

I always found it funny how Jay and Dustin who were both devs in other companies inferior to Blizzard in profit margins somehow managed to get in, get entrusted as lead devs, then fuck everything up.

It kinda sums up how Blizzard had no long term plan to raise up their own kids if some old fogey from Red Alert could call all the shots to your most famous franchise before WoW came along.

Honestly I wouldn't bother with the shipyard.

I'm running inn/salvage on 18 100s right now (10 blue/8 red) and fiddling with the shipyard for anything other than your main is just a waste of time with little returns for your effort.

It might be worth it to you to grind out some honor gear until ilvl 675 so you can trigger the weekly "goodie" quests (the ones that yield the elixir and medallions).

>tfw 3 million gold

It isn't even a lot anymore. I've been trying to offload it on guildies for a bargain until I feel poor again, but not a lot of people are biting.

>>323294796
Get to about 94-95, do bonus objectives in Gorgrond/Talador until only one thing is left to do, then pop on EXP potions and heirloom gear and complete them all in one big run. Straight to 100 in maybe fifteen minutes.

Pinky promise it's just a side effect of killing time when I wake up too early. The xpac has been out for over a year, and all of these characters have just been a level-cap stable I've had since about late Wrath (monk excluded).

>>323294796

I have a "path" I end up taking almost every time (full starter zone, gorgrond/talador outpost chains + objectives, spires until 100), but I can't say that it's the best because I really don't bother reading about stuff like this. Heirlooms combined with the garrison XP elixir have made it so 90-100 doesn't take more than a few hours if you know where you're going.

What I hate about Warlords of Draenor is that to get into Hellfire Citadel pugs, you NEED the achievement for killing normal/heroic Archimonde, just to get into a group killing one of the first bosses.
To rephrase that, you need to have killed the final boss before you can join a group killing the first one.

So many people sell heroic Archi runs that it completely devalues the achievement anyway.

This is why I can no longer play my alts. Half of these pugs won't even take a main's armory link (the kicker here is that this is the same class alt on a different faction) as proof of competence.

Haven't left yet, but strongly considering tapping out of raiding.

20m was a downgrade for me in terms of fun. It's the great ~12m core we had from last expansion with ~15 other people I don't really care for. Hate it.

Unfortunately WoW still has the only kind of PvP I enjoy (yeah, I know, no accounting for taste) so I'll probably still play casually now that you can stay subbed with gold. Hopefully the 5m content they promise in Legion will be worthwhile, but I doubt it.

I came home from work a few days after 6.2 launched, dragged myself to my computer, opened the game and just sat there for a few minutes wondering why I still "played" this if it wasn't satisfying, entertaining or engaging. I uninstalled the game later that night and haven't looked back.

I left because I don't really enjoy how the endgame is dealt with in themeparks like WoW. Sure raiding can be fine if you manage to find that one guild that isn't full of shitters, but what else is there to do outside of raiding? Absolutely fuck after like 2-4 weeks of an expac launch. I felt the exact same way with both WoD and Heavensward, both had the exact same problem with good leveling content and fun stuff at endgame for like 2 weeks, then they both felt either boring or a chore just to log onto every day.

Sad thing is I have always been a sucker for MMOs so I'll just be playing another one in a month anyways, I just hope it won't be another awful theme park.

As much as I hate all the stuff they fucked with in WoW, it's still one of the only MMOs I have a lot of fun grinding in. There is just something about the game, either the art style, combat, addons, something that feels missing from other games that try to copy WoW.

>good leveling content and fun stuff at endgame for like 2 weeks, then they both felt either boring or a chore just to log onto every day.

that's how WoW always was since Vanilla.
after getting to level 60, all you did was raid whatever tier was relevant at the time and then AFK on your mount until the raid lockout resets. the only thing else to do other than raiding was pvp and that was an unbalanced clusterfuck.

> Every class got homogenized
U wot mate, classes have stronger identities than ever before now. All have a different resource mechanic and play uniquely. If you think that looking up elitistjerks for talent specs or trying to figure out whether 3% more crit or 6% more damage on curse of agony is better and having two dozen "utility" abilities you use about once in a year was better design, then jesus.

Had you raided in vanilla, you would know that each hour of raiding requiring 2-3 of griding to get the reps, pots, consumables and attunements in addition to random gold for repairs and all.

The issue for people is that they're literally playing +5 hours a day. Vanilla WoW raiding, aside from PvP ranks, required maybe 2-3 hours of work a day albeit that was spread unequally because raids were 4-6 hours and new release was followed by intense weeks.

I admit, I started in wotl
But I tried nostr, and vanilla end game raiding was shit

Classes are unique from each other, but still most specs have 4-5 ability at max rotations. It's like playing a MOBA character now.

I only dropped wotlk faster than WoD, and only because in wod raids were locked at release

If you want complex rotations go play XIV.

I didn't think any expac was really that bad. The only questionable one was Cata due to Dragon Soul being a shit raid.

Senegos: Ten thousand years ago, I found myself mixed up with a rebel alliance of sorts.
Senegos: This was during the pinnacle of Queen Azshara's power over the elves. Her abuse of magic had grown dangerously strong.
Senegos: We plotted to use the Tidestone of Golganneth against the queen.

Senegos: Cenarius. I can wield the Tidestone, but I must warn you: we risk destroying the entire Well of Eternity!
Cenarius: That, my friend, is precisely the plan.
Illidan: Fah! We need simply to do away with Queen Azshara herself, not the very source of our people's power.
Farondis: I agree. We are firing a cannon at sparrows.
Tyrande: We are fighting the greatest danger our world has ever seen!
Tyrande: Even now, Queen Azshara colludes with demons. She puts our world at risk.
Cenarius: Very well. Prince Farondis, you can secure the Tidestone of Golganneth?
Farondis: I shall have it arranged, Cenarius.


Attendant: Here it is, my Prince: The Tidestone of Golganneth, one of the seven Stones of Creation, and treasured relic of the kaldorei.
Farondis: Very good. Leave me.
* Attendant leaves.
Farondis: I'm sorry, Cenarius. I believed in your cause, but I couldn't bring myself to turn against...
* Azshara enters.
* Farondis kneels before Azshara.
Farondis: My queen.
Azshara: You've done me a great service today, Farondis.
Azshara: What a shame that you won't LIVE to reap the benefits of my gratitude.
Farondis: ...what?!
Azshara: This whole valley is filled with plotters and schemers.
Azshara: Cavorting with Cenarius behind my back? I will NOT tolerate dissent!
Azshara: You must all be taught a lesson.
* Azshara uses lightning to blow up the Tidestone.

WOTLK had shit to do the entite expansion

Dungeons were always useful
Pvp was semi balanced after the first patch
The world was more interesting
The lore was interesting
Pugging raids was still a thing
Professions didnt suck

Only thing that is better now is making gold

Probably already been said considering the size of the thread, but Legion was being planned back in MoP. Wrathion's whole shtick was that the Legion were coming back and we had to prepare.

WoD was the biggest cashgrab filler I've ever seen.

i think (reading usual blizzcon on mmo)
they said legion was in developent at the same time as wod
that explains why wod is shit, you'll get the other half of wod with legion

>>323310505

>see wrathion in drake form at the end of WoD
>that's it

it's so bad, so, so fucking bad, it really killed any set-up they had in MoP. And now they pull shit like bringing back Calia, which could lead to fuckloads of interesting story-related things, but nope, she's a pacifist priest in the order hall doing fuck all - And the worst part is people still use these characters and their return as a means to get hyped for something.

I'm not even shilling like most WoW threads turn, but every week I consider jumping back into FFXIV with a few of my friends.

>why did you leave wow?
My guild that I had been raiding with since Vanilla disbanded sometime in early Cata (A month or so before the Ragnaros v2 patch) and my desire to play the game died with it.
>>
>>323298146
as far as im concerned, warlords was the unexpansion. bc adds flying, wod took it away until it was no longer relevant. BC had a major city, wod took them away in favor of a couple tent camps on an island nobody cares about. Bc had instances that remained relevant throughout - wod had the easiest 'catch up' gear yet. Honestly, for the longest time i figured the next expansion would send us back to northrend and take away wotlk addition. my hope for first cuts? death knights

>>323301884
playing devils advocate for a moment, wow tokens are less cost efficient than subs and thus make them slightly more money, also sparkle ponies and cash shop shit.

but yeah, i agree.

>>323284487
Farahlon would have been an isle, like Pandaria's isles, they even said so before WoD was released and the size of the map for it confirmed that.

You want to know what really happened? Rob Pardo left Blizzard. He was the last member there with a voice that actually cared about the direction the game was going in. Now all they care about is how they can win over the super casual scum that pretend to be nostalgic for things they never experienced and mindlessly throw money at everything Activison-Blizzard makes. Legion is quite literally WoD: Part 2. You can even tell that Class Halls were supposed to be much more like Garrisons than they are, in a rush job they removed as much as they could, but you still have some Garrison missions left over. The game is dead and rotting like a fetid corpse, Legion will only bring more disappointment to anyone who actually cares.

So the game is going to be for a year or more without a content update?
>>
>>323313427

6.2 was also the longest the game has ever went since Vanilla with no content patch. From WoD launch to 6.2 was 222 days.

6.1 was not a content patch, they said so themselves and were quoted as saying it was a mistake and should have been named something like 6.0.5 or whatever, instead of being labeled as a content patch when there wasn't one.
>>
>>323313595

Most likely so. Wrath did it, Cata did it, MoP did it and sure as hell WoD will do it too since blizzard has no idea what they're doing. XIV might be kind of a shitty game, at least you knew for the most part you were getting a content patch every 3 or so months.

They could've planned something to bridge the expansions with, some events, smaller dungeons which would be mostly story oriented so there doesn't have to be superelaborate boss fights... Anything. It would also mean more people will keep subbed before the expansion hits.
But instead you get more than a year of nothing.
Wow, WoW.
>>
>>323308309

The only good thing about it was the introduction of the WoW token in conjunction with garrisons printing money.

I've already sold enough gold to buy Legion and will probably never have to pay money for any of this stuff again.

There is, of course, the opportunity cost of doing literally anything else productive, but my friends still make this game (especially the PvP, as shit as it's gotten) pretty fun.
