World of Warcraft: Classic dragon griefing, Argus redux, and BFA end boss

    
15

Fun fact: Did you know that Blizzard had originally been considering Argus — the late Legion content update — as its own full-fledged expansion? While the studio didn’t go in this direction, the thought of doing more with the destroyed world hasn’t gone away entirely.

So could World of Warcraft players ever go back? J. Allen Brack may have dropped a hint that more Argus expeditions are in our future when he said in an interview that, “We’ll continue to think about it and continue to experiment.”

And as the countdown is happening for Patch 8.2, speculation is running wild as to the final Battle for Azeroth boss coming in Patch 8.3 (which will also be the final major patch of the expansion cycle). Icy Veins guesses that either N’zoth, Magni Bronzebeard, or Azeroth’s World-Soul will be up for the task.

Meanwhile over at WoW Classic’s beta, popular streamer Asmongold has reintroduced to the community the concept of dragon griefing. I mean, what else do you call kiting a dragon world boss into a capital city to rain down death and destruction?

Part of the fun of kiting NPCs around. I remember super old videos of folks kiting that dragon and someone even managed to do it with Lord Kazzak.

You call it “clever use of game mechanics” and “fun”.

speaking of old school griefing, will warlocks be able to summon that giant burning rock demon to lay waste to low level towns on pvp servers?
will my hunter be able to hide somewhere in a low level town, cast eyes of the beast, and send his level 60 pink flamingo running after low level players killing them with one peck?

I resubbed after 7 years to find a totally different game. The character models look great, as do zones, its almost like WoW 1.5 but not quite 2.

Biggest gripe so far is the dps specs for every class I tried are just variations of the old school combat rogue…

The classes are horrifically boring this expansion. Like….really bad.

Yeah pretty much every class now has point builders and then spenders… it’s really quite stupid and it’s something that Cataclysm started.

Asmongold’s mom needs to start giving him Pedialyte before child protective services take him away from her for being malnourished.

Sounds like something out of a low budget sci-fi/horror flick

And, we wonder why gaming disorder has become a thing.

People make all these comments about how he looks, and I don’t get it. He seems fine to me. I don’t see any acne, the facial hair’s maintained, nothing about him suggests any issues to me. He looks like a regular Joe who happens to play games most of the day (to make money entertaining people, which, at current, is sitting at over $40,000 a month), so of course he drinks soda and stuff, just like most gamers. You hear people talk of their plans for a new expansion (or even Classic WoW) and they talk about preparing snacks and drinks like sodas to have on hand (often the old classic, Mountain Dew). But this guy does it and it’s bad? It’s clear that’s not all he eats and drinks all day.

The guy might have a “meh” personality (it’s for entertainment, kind of like Jim Sterling or Angry Joe, and I feel more inclined to laugh than get upset when he says he’s a “literal god” about something bragging about himself and then messes it up a minute later), but it just feels bizarre that people hate on him so much that they go to jokes about his appearance or health. Just comes across as petty and mean, and makes the people doing it seem like much worse people than Asmongold at his loudest.

At one point recently he mentioned that he gets 3,000 calories per day, which is a shocking amount considering how skinny he is. So he’s probably one of those people with a supercharged metabolism that can eat like a freakin black hole and never get fat.

Plus his chat has been pushing him to sub the soda for water, and it seems to have worked to an extent, kinda.

Some people are too worked up by the neckbeard persona, but if you’ve seen any of his vlogs you can tell he’s overreacting when he’s on stream.
