Gamescom 2016: World of Warcraft brings out the hard content three weeks after Legion’s launch


For some players, the real fun of World of Warcraft: Legion won’t start until a month after its August 30th launch. At the Legion-plus-three-weeks mark, Blizzard will unlock its more challenging endgame content, including the Emerald Nightmare raid, nightmare dungeons, Mythic+ difficulty, and the new PvP system.

Blizzard had a lot to say about its new endgame at Gamescom this past week. The studio said that thanks to the Mythic+ mode and titanforged equipment, it should be able to introduce new dungeons in the future without rendering previous ones instantly obsolete. Mythic+ dungeons require mythic keystones, which are designed so that players don’t get locked out when they want to run dungeons with friends during the week.

If you feel as though your class is somewhat unbalanced right now, it probably is. Blizzard admitted that current classes are balanced around level 110 as well as 110s with artifact weapons. So stay the course and your class should get better!

Patch 7.1 will contain a mini-raid and the new Karazhan mega-dungeon. The next raid after that will be Nighthold in early 2017. You can watch the full hour of developer talk after the break!
