    Well said FrodoFragins, I am also expecting some classic upgrades in 2019. Just like the clash of clans come up with a new update and increase their popularity again. 



    I'm actually expecting a D2 remaster as well.

    each new expension im alway coming back to wow.

    Im reaching max level, get gears up, do all the instance, this time, full gears set in mystic.

    but after, im alway bored, the rep grind not something who make me log back in, the pvp not realy well done even if they have try to make it better, the only thing left for me would be harder mystic instance and raid, for get better loots.

    but all my quest are done, and since im not realy enjoying the pvp... it mean nothing.....

    idk why, but eso can keep me hooked far longer that wow, same for final fantasy 14 and many others mmorpg, hell even revelation online a crappy f2p games got me hooked for 4 month.....

    for me wow that only a very short time love, im not understanding why, they are blizzard, they should be good to keep peoples hooked... i feel like they try do it only with gears grind and rep grinds....

    the npc mission become totaly useless after you unlock all the zone and finish the main story...

    im not understanding why im bored of wow so fast all the time....

    maybe they could add better garnison ( they have make it useless ), daily reward ??

    daily mission ??? the world mission give only useless reward or reputation at some point.

    the island got me after bored after something like 20 runs, when you notice that always the same.


    im waiting until the 5 and will probably unsubs yet again, but all the time, i think.

    it worth it for sure !! got alot of fun play wow again.

    waiting for the next exp i guess

    Since the launch of BFA I've been mostly playing my main (90%+ of my time). I've been going through and hitting all the quests I could find, following the story etc

    I've started to find my log in time going down and as some others have mentioned its odd. The expansion seems solid enough and perhaps even one of the better ones. A couple things that stand out to me:

    Weapons as mentioned. For two handed users a one handed weapon shows up and for Hunters only a polearm shows up (as the 325+ option either as a WQ or Emissary reward).

    Normally I play a lot of alts. Currently I have zero motivation to play another character through everything. This becomes a "thing" when you consider that the Allied Races all require Reputation unlocks. For a reason I can't explain this wasn't really an issue for me in Legion. I have all four of the Allied races that could be unlocked with the pre-order... unlocked. I even leveled those for the Heritage Armor etc

    I will of course unlocked the two newer Allied Races... but I can't honestly see me leveling either one of them. Unless my desire to log in or play through everything again suddenly changes. I'm not really sure why it didn't bother me during Legion... and with BFA I have no desire to play through any of it again.

    I hate the Pathfinder grinding for access to flying.

    I'm still grinding WoD's Pathfinder to this day, as playing solo on my alts and getting through WoD sucks ballzzzz, or maybe I just hate the WoD Pathfinder grind. 

    Legion didn't seem as bad, and BfA's seems improved over Legion also.

    When I get to this point where I log in, do the same sort of dailies to move a little bar, then log out, it's about time for me to move on.

    Luckily, I'm on my Horde and experiencing the story from their perspective, so that should give me another month of play time the way I play.

    After that, if I STILL don't have WoD Pathfinder/flying unlocked for my alts, I'll move on to something else.

    Gut Out!

    What, me worry?

    I've been playing for a month trying to unlock the allied races and I unknowingly screwed up my 3 highest level characters by getting them over lvl 110, now i can't finish the Legion Storylines because they are tied to dungeons and raids which got locked after hitting lvl 111.

    I'm really hating that. Leveling a new character to lvl 100-109 then locking exp gain seems more appealing yet much slower than trying to get high ilvl enough to solo those dungeons.

    It's really upsetting.

    Other than that i'm loving the open world content.

    So apparently folks aren't supposed to be getting items beyond iLvl 355 yet.  However, folks have gotten Mythic dungeon rewards of iLvls up to 385.  Someone in my guild linked a reward from the Warfront WQs that was at level 390 lol.

    These folks responsible for itemization in BfA.  Whoowee.

    It's a bug.  Those items will get revoked.

    I think so too.  That's a pretty large gap in item level.  I don't think they let the mythic+ go live with those items still in players' hands.

    EDIT- to correct myself.

    Everyone complains (including me) but they keep coming back. It's bloody addicting. I always say I won't buy the latest expansion..... but I always do.

    True for most part. And some stick with it no matter what. But...

    WoD is proof that a bad expansion can drive off a vast amount of players.

    We'll see if BFA is better, same or worse in WoD in terms of retaining players.

    Huh?  WoD was far superior to Legion in just about every facet.  I stopped playing Legion less than a month after launch.  Legion was a horrible change to Wow.

    I have not bought this expansion.  I will wait until at least the first major patch before I try it.

    I haven't reached BfA-content yet. When the expansion was released I started playing on a new Warrior. Only reached level 75 and I'm having a blast so far. Yes the game is easier, but there's so much content. I'll probably switch to TESO in a few months or wait until Camelot Unchained, but I am pretty sure I'll enjoy the game until then.

    Of course you forgot to mention this is your opinion. Mine is completely opposite, weird how that works.

    I agree that Marksman Hunter is not in a good place.  I enjoyed the way it played in Legion, but I guess many didn't so Blizzard decided to rework the spec again ... but the BfA version does not feel like an improvement to me.

    And on the Mission Tables, man, don't even get me started.  I'm glad their significance has been reduced yet again in this expansion, but why are they still in the game at all?  The developer who came up with the Mission Table concept must have some dirt on a higher up that they're using as blackmail to keep their garbage idea in the game.  They really need to put a bullet that shit.

    I kind of disagree on the MM.  I feel like it's in a better place now.  It still revolves around Aimed Shot proccing Arcane shot buffs, but it seems more fluid to me even with the Haste changes.

    It's still (and likely always will be) a crutch in PvP to rely so heavily on a cast time ability, but combining double tap with camoflouge is a helluva stealth opener. 

    The spec suffers from the whims of RNGesus.  Lock and Load is not nearly reliable enough to depend on for anything.  Crit and damage buff procs really make me feel like I have limited control over my damage capabilities.

    Tables are not mandatory In the least. I just ignore them.

    I need to play with it more with my Goblin Hunter, but my initial impressions in the pre-patch left me feeling a bit "meh" about it.  Maybe it'll grow on me over time.

    You know people say this, but it's not entirely true, is it?  Sure, you can ignore them ... if you don't mind sacrificing multiple additional flight points in the enemy's territory that would greatly increase your efficiency in those regions.

    I suppose that after a certain point, they're optional, but the game pushes you towards them initially.

    The haste buffs from Azerite Armor definitely help.  That's kinda been a sticking point for me throughout the expansion though, as I'm not a huge fan of these buffs they seem to be pushing to replace the stacking of secondaries ala Legion.

    Here's my review - rushed to release several months early for no apparent reason (dont coincide with a movie release or any gaming con's or any anniversaries) and pushed out without full beta testing while ignoring the mountain of test reviews/complaints/bug reports they did get. Azerite gear is clunky and doesnt really serve any purpose - and the traits you unlock with that slow azerite grind are somewhere between lackluster and useless, plus the three slots they take up - chest, helm and shoulders lack any secondary stats at all, so they dont even provide stat stick benefit.

    Everything is gated behind time sinks - rep, wq's, war fronts, new races, raid, LFR ... and most of it is just killing time waiting or endless quests of kill 10 of 'x' and return their heads/bones/eyes because apparently the battle between horde and alliance requires mass mountains of frog eyes and murloc hides.

    Another issue is scaling - you're at your most powerful at the old legion cap of 110, then each level from 111-120 you actually slide backward; even though your level, ilvl and health pool keeps going up with gear upgrades and each level earned, secondary stats of mastery and crit scale quite badly, and haste at least to my destro warlock main feels like it scales even worse, making cast times actually get longer and resource regen slower as you get higher level. For example at 110 I may have an ilvl of 210 with 300 haste and a haste percentage around 34%.. by 120 while my ilvl is 310 and haste may be 580 but for some reason only equates to a 9% haste ... so my formerly 1.7 second chaos bolt now takes 2.4 or 2.5 seconds to cast.

    Other than that though ... the art and design of both ally and horde zones are phenomenal, the story us so far quite good and interesting and the sounds/ambiance/music is awesome.

    Been playing BFA since it went live, 3 toons to 120, and at Raid Ilvl. But the fun has dwindled, rep grind is a real dull experience once again. New 120 feel very under powered compared to 110-119 level toons. With Arathi opening and the gear drops from there, Dungeons, WQ's etc are not longer needed for fresh 120's, and redundant outside of faction grinding. BFA was fun for 2 weeks or so, now its dull and the Azerite gear, what a huge cluster truck of an idea.......

    Think BFA has taught me its time to move on to something new.
