Been waiting for this for way too long, but now that it finally happened I honestly think that they should have just skipped Cata, MoP and WoD and just go for Legion, because quite frankly this whole thing looks so bloody awesome that I cannot even begin to describe just how excited I am to be able to take the Demon Hunters for a spin around Azeroth. In case you are living on the other side of the moon or just like me you quit WoW and any other Blizz game for good (at least up until this new expansion comes around or you decide to try out one of their free to play, but pay to win titles) and you haven’t seen the trailers and presentation for the newest World of Warcraft expansion, then my friends I give you: Legion!
World of Warcraft: Legion – Overview
So there you have it, the nice and fuzzy reveal of the newest expansion which should make things even more interesting for us poor mortals who have no idea if they will live to see the defeat of Sargerasor die somewhere in the process (like for real you know … in a traffic accident or something). Now if they get it right this time then we will have something to play for a slightly longer time than the last time, because other than that Warlords seemed pretty badass as well (a little to hellbent on emphasizing the awesomeness of the orcs, but either way it seemed promising) and still somehow managed to get the coolness out of it. Now let us hope that this will manage to live up to the expectations and it won’t mess things up somewhere along the way as well, or at least that it will mess them up just a little less, eh?. I mean after all Illidan is a pretty cool guy and we all wanted to see him back in action in one way or another … Oh right, in case you missed the teaser at the end of the video here it is:
World of Warcrft: Legion – Cinematic Teaser
Yep so there you have it … Illidan brought back to life in a nutshell. We should see more of this on launch day, but up until then we can only just speculate what exactly will the story turn out to be like or let Nobbel do that since he usually does a much better job than anyone else at it. I for one hope it will be nice enough and prove to be a valuable revamp, but clearly people have had their fill with this game and I am afraid that regardless of how good or bad everything will be in this expansion people will come back to play it and then leave after a month or so. And as you would expect the launch zones will be overcrowded and the rest of the world would be empty once more epsecially if they raise the boost cap to 100 (which I hope to Elune that they would not so, but you may never know). Still … Maybe they will do something to add a little more stability to them servers this time … One can always hope, right?
Finally there is the problem of the guides because as with every new expansion the update of the guides should follow. But given the dire circumstances it is quite possible that by the time Legion hits the markets sometimes next year, there really will be no more need of any guides, since the game basically holds your hand with every ocassion it gets. From the fabled gold guides that got you 20k in a day that were more or less rendered useless as well with the introduction of the tokens that are bought with real currency to the integrated quest helper and the ever easier quests for everyone to level up in 3 days of playtime the game really needs little to no guidance. I mean honestly who needs a guide for dailies and garrisons and other farmville-like crap? But still in case you feel the need to get some extra help do please help yourself to the sidebar and choose from the ones that are still available from among those, will you? … Now things are clearly not looking very well from my perspective, but as always there already is a fan base that will be returning regardless of what the story or gameplay may be like and that clearly is what drives Blizz to keep putting these expansions out no matter what … Until the end of days … And beyond!
