World of Warcraft begins Legion’s beta testing

    
60

Alpha? That’s so early 2016, you guys. Starting today, World of Warcraft: Legion is all about its beta test, which will run until the expansion’s launch at the end of August.

The beta is purportedly a much more complete version of Legion than what was seen in the alpha, and as such Blizzard wants all testers, new and old, to start over. Those invited won’t be able to import their characters or create new ones but instead will have to choose from several level 100 templates. Blizzard said that there’s no NDA during this beta period, so chatter about it to your heart’s content.

Even if you haven’t gotten a beta invite yet (or don’t want one), you might be interested in reading through the expansion’s beta patch notes. Legion introduces a new hero class, the Demon Hunter, as well as five additional zones, 10 dungeons, two raids, the artifact system, class halls, a revamp to the transmog system, and world scaling and questing.

Not at all what I was alluding to, she said the game was easy now. I was curious if she completed it on the hardest difficulty. Speaking of which, most games have harder difficulty settings I guess you should go on every game board and complain that that doesn’t count as content.
Stay out of shit that doesn’t concern you. I have no interest in your ridiculous arm chair devisms. Go make or point out a better one, then go play that chump.

Bannex19 Recycling content is not adding “new” content.  Why should Blizzard bother?  They can make 1 raid zone then make it into four different, and I use that term loosely, versions.  So you get Raid X, Raid X 10 man, Raid X Hard Mode and Raid X 10 man Hard Mode.

Oh and yes I did complete a Mythic, just to see what the deal was.  All that trouble for a slightly higher ilevel item.  Pass.

Not arguing they should or shouldn’t. But Mages where significantly mobile limited in comparison to other caster classes in MoP. In fairness though, those other classes where reigned in WoD. However, our mobility (or lack thereof) was never been really touched the last 4 expansions.
My issue is I am not sure where you got we where ever that mobile. Just keep in mind, that padding our Crits did gives us a more opportunity to instant case, giving the false air of being more mobile. But that’s a different thing. That is, the issue then is with procs and bursts, and not with movement. :)

No, they’re not specifically alike. Nor could they ever be alike. But that wasn’t the point of my analogy. Rather example of a golden opportunity to turn things around and make a real go of it. And the potential of not making those steps to do so. /shrug

One would expect. But that didn’t really work out for WoD.

Akami BritoBruno Sorenthaz Probably the amount of trial/error you have to go through unless you’re playing on the highest difficulty level (i.e. Mythic Hellfire Citadel I hear is a really good challenge and the quality of the raid is top notch).   In WotLK the difficulty was split between Normal and Heroic, and you could also 10man or 25man the content to get the same rewards, iirc.   But they made most of the real difficulty revolve around the achievements like Alone in the Darkness for Ulduar.   Alone in the Darkness (according to one of my friends at least) pre-nerf was one of the most challenging encounters in the game, apparently.
With Burning Crusade and Vanilla it was more about every class having a role and wiping was way more punishing.   So in the end it probably felt more rewarding to do that stuff.  WotLK though is where they started to greatly reduce challenges in most areas outside of the highest level of content while giving you rewards for just about everything.  So the effort vs reward ratio was drastically cheapened imo.   
But WotLK at least was more balanced between “too much effort for little reward” vs “too much reward for little effort” than Cata, MoP, and WoD became.   Hopefully Legion pushes it back more into the happy middle, though Blizzard isn’t really good with NOT operating on extremes.
