World of Warcraft: Shadowlands rearranges soulbinds and alters the Renown UI

Players might be a little bit bored in World of Warcraft right now aside from leveling alts. But have no doubt, Shadowlands is on its way with new content! The current testing phase is about ironing out the issues and delivering a polished experience, and this delay is not just rearranging the deck chairs! Let’s look at the latest development update, which is all about… how the latest build rearranges the order of traits unlocked in the soulbind trees.

Darn it.

Wait, wait, it’s actually fine, this is a serious and positive change because it’s focused on a needed power shift. The prior capstone ability is now the first ability unlocked, this meaning that each soulbind has a knock of power right away. This build also improves the Renown interface substantially and adds a number of items meant to improve progression in the Maw, although the items are currently placeholders and should be working next week. Forward progress is still being made!

Tell you what, leveling alts now may be fast, but it is 100% more boring than it ever was before.

* The ‘progression’ is mind numbing bland. Gear and loot just feels so worthless.

* No point in crafting as all crafting is expansion locked and there is no reason to craft outside of the current (Shadowlands) expansion.

* You play and you KNOW that you will be kicked out of the expansion long before you even get close to finishing it. Yes, you can turn off exp, but to what end? It was supposed to be that these new compact expansion leveling areas were done so players could experience the whole expansion story.

* And, good luck with that since the end of the story is usually locked behind dungeons and raids which no one is doing.

It is just dull, dull, dull. Not to mention buggy as all get out.

But, you know who I feel really sorry for? The people new to Retail WoW that have to level 10-50 in BfA and at the end of it go into Shadowlands without a clue of how to play their character in dungeons and raids. Or even what dungeons and raids are really like in Retail WoW.

Just my 2c based on my experience leveling a Druid 10-50 in WoD. Ten days left on my sub and then that’s over.

Just go back and finish it, what’s the big deal the mobs are scaled to your level right? I mainly just play ESO for the story, Champion Points are nice and all but they make no major difference to me so playing content for the story after level cap doesn’t phase me at all.

* And, good luck with that since the end of the story is usually locked behind dungeons and raids which no one is doing.

Isn’t all that stuff designed to be legacy content any way so you should be able to solo all those 5 Mans and Raids?

Look if WoW isn’t for you then why do you keep bitching and complaining about it, save your money and play something else; paying for something you clearly hate seems like a mentally ill thing to do just saying.

Why the story was fine, it’s the systems that sucked but it’s non progression content at this point any way so plenty of opportunity for people to get schooled through trial and error, I know I certainly will going in as a tank that barely touched BFA’s endgame.

“No point in crafting as all crafting is expansion locked and there is no reason to craft outside of the current (Shadowlands) expansion.”

This is pretty much the only point I can agree with you on. As ever since they tied each profession to it’s respective expansion, it had become a really pain in the rear pigtails to level. As opposed to doing it linearly, before Blizz fudged with what wasn’t really broken.

So yeah, crafting got borked in Legion. Still not as bad as Blade & Soul borking, but borked none of the less.

You play and you KNOW that you will be kicked out of the expansion long before you even get close to finishing it. Yes, you can turn off exp, but to what end? It was supposed to be that these new compact expansion leveling areas were done so players could experience the whole expansion story.

What’s the deal wit this anyways? As long as you got the FP’s in the expansion you are playing, you can fly back to where you where questing and pick up from where you where last left. I’ve never heard of not being able to complete any previous expansions quests lines…as the respective NPC’s and whatnot are still there regardless of your level and progression…

…unless Blizz has completely locked players out of it. Which would be the most asinine thing ingame to date.

That said, I agree that if you have written off WoW that much, you shouldn’t be playing it. The game should be stress releaser, not giving you more stress every time you log on. So put it to bed, and go play something else for a long while.

It was a well articulated response.
