It's a shame Warfronts fell flat, would have loved to see the eventual (unlikely) Pandaren vs Pandaren Warfront in Vale of Eternal Blossoms.

Has anyone in history enjoyed Island Expeditions? I stopped doing them the second I hit exalted with Honorbound.

They're better now than when they launched. I recently did a bunch with Anoregon and Berordn and I had a good time. I wouldn't try pugging them, though, personally because voice communication seems helpful and I don't feel like dealing with a bossy "leader" like I got the few times I pugged some in 8.0.

The amount of parallels I can draw between WoW and GoT right now is staggering

I'm absolutely sick of the GoT influence being there in WoW. Yeah, yeah. Fantasy influences fantasy - I know. But I thought we peaked when Varian got wildfire'd felfire'd out of existence.

And I was absolutely wrong.

PS - there's nothing inherently wrong with GoT, in theory, I just think its sort of "brutal, grimdark" storytelling and influence doesn't mesh well with WoW's aesthetic. I know people won't agree with me and that's fine but yeah.

Bizarrely enough, in it's current state it seriously feels like WoW influenced GoT TV series more than vice versa

I'm spoilering this just in case but if you mean

motivations being out of whack and characters being completely out of character?

then yeah i agree
They're referring to
a character capturing a city and then inexplicably burning it down with everyone inside for no reason. Dany is Garrosh 3 or Sylvanas 2

This but also the
Viserion's ressurrection and design looked like straight out of WotLK
and another possible finale plot point that I don't want to talk about yet but I'm sure to return here if it comes to fruition.

Alas, talking about
character motivations
, touche.

Dany not buying cold weather flying
almost doomed them

Which was roundabout what I was mentioning without going too far into detail in case someone clicked spoiler without really thinking too hard about it.

Yeah. My biggest problem with media in all forms right now is this desperate need to be the edgiest, darkest, grim thing out there and how you can write a great story about war, loss, triumph, sacrifice etc
without shitting on your characters that have existed previously completely fine without this type of writing and characterization before.

Spoilered just for safety.

Ended up creating and leveling up a Demon Hunter just to do another shuffle, but now I'm interested in twinking him. Kinda hard though, I can barely find people to do current content, finding others to do heroic/mythic ABT will be insane here.

I should take the easy way out and level up to 111, then get 233 blues. But eeeehhhh, I wanted to do something right for once.

Gonna get back into some of my alts soon. As much as I love my balance druid main (I chose well this expansion, haha), the fun factor with a few of the other classes is a really fresh spin on things, especially the Demon Hunter.

What are you guys finding most fun these days?

I've been leveling alts and working on professions. World Quests for easy gearing, etc. It's been a good change of pace and it's easy enough to not get burned out on while waiting for 8.2.

Streamers are hyping some info up for release in 10 minutes.

Seems safe to say it is a beta date for Classic.

Can you buy the CE with B.net balance? Also seems like the beta sign-up site got nuked, I hope having the general opt-in enabled on my B.net makes me eligible. Edit: There's a new check mark for the WoW Classic beta on the general sign-up page now, but you need an active sub to get invited.

I know they've said Classic will update incrementally like it originally did, but I hope they get some synergy going with current WoW. Meaning, say, AQ for Classic comes out during the down time between patches for the main game. Makes sense to keep people subbed to me.

Finishing up my achievements, to be honest. If I can solo it, I'm doing it.

That Deathwing mount is insane. Shame about Classic being August, I really wanted it to be July.

Oh well.


I'd get the new CE but the shipping alone would cost me an arm.

This is pretty cool. Maybe I'll save names just in case.

The mount is a reward, apparently, for completing the holiday event which shouldn't be too hard even with World Quest gear. You should get it!

I wonder if Classic will support older OS.

Thinking about busting out my old PC with Windows XP which I used to play the original on to get that extra old feel.

I'd expect that Classic will probably support whatever current WoW supports. It's literally like a visual/mechanical shell over the modern client.

That rag statue is very cool but that kind of stuff isn't for me. I usually regret buying CE-type stuff.
