World of Warcraft developers discuss endgame loot tables, Chris Metzen acknowledges Warcraft movie sequel rumor

Want to dig the depth.

The endgame mechanics for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands are still under a degree of scrutiny by players, to the point that the developers have taken a moment on the official forums to outline the overall philosophy at work for loot tables and how the three structured reward paths (M+, top-end raiding, and ranked PvP) are meant to provide comparable rewards to players with dedicated groups for all three. Of course, the thread in question is full of people pointing out the ways in which even comparable item level rewards do not actually make these paths comparable, but the attempt was made.

Meanwhile, in the land of unconfirmed rumors, it looks like Chris Metzen has taken note of the rumors flying around about a potential second Warcraft film. The rumors remain just that, however; Metzen does not work for Blizzard any longer, after all, and he acknowledges that he’s simply passing along what he has seen. Still, if you wanted more fuel for the rumor fire this morning, you now officially have it.

Oh god. I worked so hard on forgetting their choice of actor for Lothar.

And now they want to bring him back. 🤦

Sure fine, make another one. Fuck my childhood some more, why don’t you. Can’t wait to see Lothar and Garona couple. Maybe Chris Tucker can play Trollbane.

Genuinely laughed out loud at your Chris Tucker reference. Man.. what a hot mess of a movie it was. The fact that they want to revisit it scares me to death. I wish they’d made a CGI movie and just call it a day.

I really enjoyed the original Warcraft movie and would have loved an extended edition as they had shot a whole bunch more of stuff.

But at this point I am somewhat skeptical of a sequel, it’s been a while and as MOP reported a while back they sold off a lot of the props and stuff at auction, which I would have thought indicated they were not needed anymore.

Then again, I suppose for another Warcraft movie it doesn’t actually have to really follow-on directly if it takes place a fair bit later. Whatever happens I would like to see Duncan Jones returned as director if this was real.


A Warcraft 2 movie?

Yeah, sure.

Like Alice, I too try to believe three impossible things before breakfast.


Warcraft 2 movie? Yes please. The first movie wasn’t bad by any stretch, it just struggled with trying to introduce and do all that it wanted to.


I just hope Duncan Jones gets to helm again.


…it also a nice way to put that they’re killing off the Bonus Role mechanic in Shadowlands. /le sigh
