Gamescom 2015: Blizzard answers more World of Warcraft: Legion questions

    
37
Let's do this old gag again.

Everyone who cares about World of Warcraft wants to know more about Legion, even though the details are likely to remain vague for the next few months. Another interview took place on the Gamescom floor centering around customization options, confirming that among other things players will likely be able to transmog other weapons in place of the artifact weapon that will dominate most of the expansion. There are no plans to allow other customizations for races outside of the elf-only Demon Hunter, however.

Blizzard also hosted its Q&A at the end of the event, but if you’re hoping for extensive new information regarding the expansion you will be sorely disappointed. You can check out the archived stream down below, but the majority of it is taken up with recaps of the central reveals. One bright side that comes out of both sources is the confirmation that players will get an additional character slot in Legion, so you needn’t worry about deleting a character to have one of every class on a given realm.

Grimmtooth don’t forget the bad requirements to get flying in the expansion.   Already gave up on the unfun ones in wod.   I’m starting just to hate blizzard in general and don’t really trust what they say anymore.

SallyBowls1 Zophie Winters chosenxeno Timewalking should be an all the time feature.  It would shorten queues and everyone would get something out of the deal. Win-Win.

Of course, since it makes sense Blizzard won’t do it for some vague “balance” issue.

Try multitudes of them for starters. So it’s not even in the singular….
…or is this is one of those “What month has 28 days” trick questions?

ManastuUtakata CharcoalCrow Greaterdivinity  IDK. More studios seem to be dropping expansions all together (EQ, EVE) Bliz have been saying for years they wanted an annual expansion. Although they are still not there yet.  If you launch about every year. then you are going to get an announcement about every year, regardless of how the current expansion is doing.

anatheod Yeah.  The post launch interviews provided new info; the Q&A did not.

ManastuUtakata Greaterdivinity CharcoalCrow EVE has been chugging along since before WoW.  Back when they were doing expansions, they were every six months.  Their project management methodology is Agile, which is all about cutting scope not extending dates.  My impression is Agile is gaining practitioners, especially in gaming.

Sorenthaz SoMuchMass usagizero I agree with you. But they already said no flying at the start but the WOD-like criteria to start flying will be announced and you can start working on it. And they did say how new iteration of follower is different (fewer, give in-world buffs. etc.)

There was so much more detail than I was expecting at an announcement. Although there is so much more to know. E.g. the lock and hunter changes were very interesting but they did not have to share them now.

SoMuchMass I would have asked, “With such a short life-cycle between WoD and Legions, is Legions going to be free?”
