It’s been said that World of Warcraft‘s patch 6.2 will not be the end of the expansion’s patch cycle, but boy, it sure does feel like it. Just looking at the preview for Hellfire Citadel you can see an enormous collection of show-stopping bosses and battles, covering almost every major enemy that players have encountered on Draenor up until now. It even throws in some new ones, like Tyrant Velhari the anti-paladin and Xhul’horac the void revenant. And this isn’t the finale?

The full preview shows off all of the bosses with designer commentary on each one. While it won’t give you a comprehensive idea of how to beat each boss, it does offer hints. Several of the encounters are also designed to be references to previous content, such as being devoured by a boss, facing a boss-level encounter without a single boss, and even taking control of a raid boss for a brief time. Check out the full preview for all of the details.

TomTurtle The artwork in this expansion has been top-notch, IMO. It’s just a pity that so little of consequence *happens* in all that grandiose scenery…

Sick of Blizzard. Sick of WoW. Sick of recycled unimaginative bullshit.

hardy83 CosmicGuitars They have been saying they wanted to get expansions out faster for at least 5 years while in fact going in the opposite direction. They have said a goal of a year. No matter how WoD did, they would like to get expansions out faster.  And most of the players will believe “faster” only after they achieve it.

Paaperclips Well… the quote is “”We’ve got plenty of more story to be told after this,” Hazzikostas says when asked whether patch 6.2 would be the last big content update for Warlords of Draenor.”

1) The “plenty of story to be told after this” could be told in a 7.0 that is announced at gamescon. lol. 

2) Plenty of story after this could be a patch or two after 6.2 while still keeping to the 6.2 is the last raid tier goal they had preciously announced.

Not gonna lie, the fel-infused baddies look really good. It’s very neat to see a mix of  corrupted Orc and Draenei in there.

CosmicGuitars While I’m sure they are going to release at least one more major patch after this, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they are going to hurry this expansion considering how disappointed many are with it. I’m sure they just want to move on and push lvl 110 and forget Garrisons ever happened and go back to a stupid amount of dailies like in Pandaria.
