    I am having a great time in game so far, I really think this has been one of Blizzards better launches, most of us haven't experienced any issues and everything seems solid. Will be interesting to see if queues will be needed tonight when everyone else is home and playing..

    "and we’ll revisit it again a couple of months down the line to assign the final score"

    EXCUSE ME??? IT IS RELEASED AND THEY ARE CHARGING MONEY FOR IT. REVIEW AND SCORE IT NOW AS YOU CLAIM IS YOUR POLICY. OTHERWISE YOU LOOK TWO FACED.
    That policy is different game to game. I have seen games that have stated they are in beta and major parts of the game are not up and running and they get judged as a released game. Then CoE is given a pass for doing the same thing. You learn to take what this site says with a large grain of salt. Still what I call my internet home. Place still one of the best game sites out there. 
    But they actually went so far as to publish an article explaining in great detail why this would be their policy. 

    @BillMurphy How much does Blizzard pay you to discard your own integrity?

    Yeah they got me back in the fold for now at least. Haven't played in years since I wasn't interested in neither Panda land or WOD but this expansion seems much more interesting. Here goes I guess.

    Going to pass - so no.  Those that are - enjoy.

    Had to create a new account but am a long time member and creeper.I have started playing again but it's been like 5 years since I played the game in it's current form. I am enjoying the game on a new recently purchased comp. I do have a huge favor to ask of the community and of anyone thinking of getting the game but has not purchased yet and would make a new account. I was going for a refer a friend to get all the bonuses but messed up and applied the content to an old account. If anyone is thinking of getting the game and starting a new account, I would greatly appreciate the chance to try and refer you so we both get bonuses. Thanks!

    So you had to create a new mmorpg.com account AND a new Battle.net account???

    Something seems REALLY fishy about this guy

    No. WoD and Garrison's were such a let down that I'll always wait for any Blizzard purchase. They are in the same category as EA now with game releases. All advertising, zero content.

    As of right now, I see no reason I will be buying Legion in the future. After watching streams and feedback, it is the same dungeon/quest crawler game with nothing to do outside of that.

    No, my last foray was when I returned from vanilla to try Cata and I called it quits for good afterwards.

    I played the last couple of months and had some fun, but I didn't buy the xpac. I've cancelled the sub for now because I'm playing other mmos. I'll play again for a month or two after the hubbub has died down and maybe the xpac goes on sale.  Right now I probably have at least 10 other games I want to make progress in before this.

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking as well; I mean as far as the sale goes.  Blizzard usually discounts their games during the holiday sales.  I figure I'll pick it up then for both me and my son.

    I read that someone got to cap in 5 and a half hours. Crazy! Not sure why people do that. To each their own I guess.

    I sure am. The game is better than it's ever been and I have been playing since vanilla. Blizzard did exactly what they needed to do to make this game immersive and fun again. They added a level of depth to the game that it's never had. From professions, to PvP, to artifact weapons, etc. They have also managed to update the graphics, which while not cutting edge they are satisfying.

    So on professions, can every player get every recipe easily as with Warlords of Draenor?  Depth would be how it was before; where some recipes were rare and required braving the depths of a dangerous dungeon just to have a chance at acquiring them.
    Crafting now has their own leveling system.  So you now have one crafting level (i.e. 1 - 750) and then you also have proficiency in each item crafted which is only increased by creating specific items.  The higher your specific item proficiency the better the item level of the item.  You also can break down items you don't want that you crafted and apply those mats towards upgrading other items you crafted.  

    Same goes for gathering... The higher your proficiency in gathering a specific node (i.e. ore 1 or ore 2) the more you get from mining it.  

    So for example you could have a blacksmith that specializes in two handed swords.  

    You also have to do an entire separate questing system for professions to get new patterns...  Some will have you complete dungeons, some will have you kill specific bosses etc.

    You really can't compare Legion to Warlords of Draenor...  I have been playing for 10 + years and WoD was awful compared to every other expansion.  I've played the beta and blizzard has done a lot to improve the game.

    Nope, I played it at the very beginning when it had limited zones (I am all for world pvp), since this is just another "grind the levels till you are maxed and sit in a capital waiting for a instance to pop up" expansion I have no urge to buy this one.

    Looking at the Twitch streamers, it looks just like another "+10 lvls poor graphics no innovation selling out for quick cash" expansion.

    But I am happy for the ones that still enjoy this game.

    Nope. Can't do the old boring themepark MMO thing anymore after playing games like Archeage and BDO. With all their faults, they upped the expectation of virtual worlds for me.

    I enjoyed the invasions quite a bit got some gear for my alts had hours of fun. Launch, got as far as my artifact weapon quest just couldn't get into it staring at the zone map. No flying and thinking all the work last xpac is now worthless and all this all over again, nty. Got sucked in after a long break so I just chalked it up to an expensive peek.

    Nope. I have no one to play with and they destroyed my classes, so I don't see much reason to return.

  • Spankster77Spankster77 Member UncommonPosts: 487
     If Korean grinders are your thing (i.e. archeage, BDO) you will probably be disappointed as the grind in WoW doesn't feel like a grind.  Sure it's there but not like go kill 10,000 of a specific mob to go up 1/2 a level like 55 + in BDO or the Hasla gear grind in Archeage.  As well as there is no player housing and such.

    WoW is well, WoW.  If you expect it to be something different, you will be disappointed.  However, if you are looking for a much improved version of WoW, I think you will enjoy Legion.  The crafting has improved, the gathering has improved, they have separated instanced PvE and PvP specs so balancing will be better, they added weapon specs which adds more depth and customization to classes, leveling isn't as on rails as you can chose to start in any zone as the zones scale with your level, and they did a really great job with the texturing, shadowing, and lighting to modernize the look and feel.

    WoW is not WoW any more, in my opinion.   It's New WoW.  And I like the old one better.  I liked it when it was challenging enough to be interesting.  I liked it when not everyone was a Hero.  The fact that every player gets an artifact weapon shows how much the game has devolved into a Everyone's-A-Winner scenario.  It wasn't like that in the beginning.  Back then, only the most devoted players could acquire the rarest items the game had to offer, which is what gave those items value.  Now?  Well ... 'nuff said.  I'm glad you're enjoying the game and I sincerely wish I could as well, but it's nothing like the game it once was and I felt compelled to point that out after reading your post.
