World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth collectors editions, game datamining

Going nowhere, going nowhere

When can we start playing allied races in World of Warcraft? Probably as soon as we can pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth, based on current expectation. And when will that be? We just don’t know. What we do know is what the collector’s edition appears to be packing. Yes, it’s mounts and a pet, that’s always what we get, but it looks like it’s going to be two mounts based on faction and the previously spied Tortollan pet!

It looks like Alliance players will be getting an armored Seabraid Stallion (there seem to be new horse models out there) while Horde players get an armored raptor (representing the Zandalari Trolls). Obviously, nothing has been confirmed yet, but that’s what everything is pointing toward… and if that’s showing up in datamining, it might not be that far off.

As far as the actual game rather than the box for the game? Yep, WoWhead is datamining the heck out of that too – check out the mounts and beasties, music, pets, maps, and talents for just a taste of what’s available. Or don’t spoil yourself. You choose.

Meanwhile, Chris Metzen is apparently enjoying the heck out of Legion now that he’s no longer working at Blizzard. So that’s certainly a point of interest.

Boy the artists sure aren’t the ones sparing efforts, the rotting engine stepping firmly into living-dead territory that’s some gorgeous looking eyecandy.

Another romp through uncharted waters to enjoy despite the devs best efforts to the contrary rather then thanks to them? Been there, done that…

Freaking engineering got even MORE useful.

Scuba suit? Transmog pad? Portable stable? These are all things other games try to sell you as microtransactions!

Yeap but others games does not time gate you desperately to keep you subscribed…

Quest campaigns.. 1 quest per week (lol?)… lfr opens 2 months after a patch..

At this time i would prefer microtransactions for fluff stuff than blizzard ridiculous time gates..

Although it was immensely off topic, im glad I was able to provide you an avenue to vent your frustrations :P

I was genuinely frustrated because of the comparison with other games :P Every game has its pros and cons.

Not gonna lie…looking at them reverting all the homogenization of the past few expansions and adding back some uniqueness to classes is looking real nice. And enchantments reducing threat? Are they actually going to make threat matter again? Please Blizzard, don’t do this to me…

Err…the threat meter is still there as far as I am aware.

Threat exists, it’s just irrelevant given how much threat tanks generate compared to dps nowadays. I miss the days of needing to fight to hold threat, and for tanks who could grab threat early and maintain it without DPS needing to hold off at the start of the fight or throttle their DPS during burn phases being prized commodities for guilds : P

*clears voice*
*opens hymnal and commences the blasphemy*

(Refrain)
Whatsoever you nerf
To the least of my classes
That you nerf unto me

When I was Shaman, you nerfed my totems
When I was Warrior, you nerfed my chargin’

Now enter into the home of my Metzen

Whatsoever you nerf
To the least of my classes
That you nerf unto me

When I was Paladin, you nerfed my buffs
When I was Druid, you removed class-based fluff

Now my travel form is boring and unearned

(Refrain)

When I was Rogue, you buffed my stealth speed
When I was Mage, you ignored my Frost pleas

Now I gank newbies to make myself happy

(Refrain)

If it’s true that collector’s edition sounds entirely skippable – which I appreciate.
