World of Warcraft warns that ‘time runs short’ to prepare for Shadowlands

Time is running short to get ready for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands — or so Blizzard would have you believe.

While there is no set timetable yet for Shadowlands’ pre-patch or official launch, the studio is giving its playerbase a heads-up that people might want to get certain activities done sooner rather than later. This includes claiming the Uncorrupted Voidwing dragon from Ny’alotha, grabbing rank 4 essences, and getting the huge Brutosaur mount. Blizzard also gave everyone notice that the PvP seasons will be changing their format with the pre-patch and that certain mounts would become much more difficult to attain in the future.

Blizzard also gave notice that a few US realm connections that were supposed to happen this week have been delayed “due to unforseen technical issues.”

Over in WoW Classic, the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj are about to open, and the events that will precede this momentous events will start on July 28th. Blizzard posted the details about how this complex event will take shape, so make sure you give it a read if you’re planning to participate.

Forgive me, I can’t not post this …

Time grows short for the people running Blizzard to get their act together or, as others here at MOP have said repeatedly, the mythical “WoW Killer” will be revealed to be Blizzard itself.

will be revealed

Old news, friend. Everyone already knew the only company capable of killing WoW is Blizzard themselves.

I have zero interest in their recycled grinder content. They use that formula for everything at the end of expansions. I also tend to be the type that starts new characters during expansions. So I am more excited about new race customization and the new starter experience.

I never think that all mounts should ever be gotten easily…

…but there has to be a better way than pointless grind. So no thanks, Blizz…I rather go for the things I can get without losing my mind and/or soul in the process.

They’re just not worth it, IMO.

Now the question is whether or not the time gating on reputations/cloak progression is bad enough to where I’ll be able to get stuff done in time or not. There’s too much daily content to do between Nazjatar, Mechagon, and the N’zoth stuff, and rep gains for daily quests are for some reason still set to be stupidly low (50-75 apiece? wtf?). Probably will take me at least another week to get to Revered with Unshackled/Rustbolt so I can actually use flying in BFA areas, which is partially irrelevant since the N’zoth areas are just reused areas that I can fly in.

A safe estimate would be:

Shadowlands sometime in November
Pre-patch sometime in October.

So a little over 2 months (give or take a couple weeks) to “be prepared”

Im a bit upset they are removing the 5 million gold Dino mount though. Unless they plan to replace it with a 5 million gold mount from Shadowlands, that also has an Auction House NPC on it.

Would this stuff go to the black market vendor thing I’ve heard of once?

Well Blizz time runs short to give me Beta because I cancelled my sub until I get that invite as I explained in my reason.
