Is it over or will it be a week by week staggered release which we know they love to do.
I don't think Blizzard can encrypt content when it's been released to live servers.
That's where I'm at.
They can with cinematics at least. The Eternal Palace ending was on everyone's hard drive as soon as 8.2 dropped, but it couldn't actually be decrypted without clearing the raid.
DPS DK was so much fun in WotLK, running a different spec every raid tier sometimes two. Always browsing the EJ forums looking for what crazy thing came up next. The shadowfrost build was probably one of my favorite WoW moments, although it was hilariously broken. I remember pulling like 60% of my 10-mans damage on Onyxia just demolishing whelps with howling blast crits. Got nerfed pretty quickly but it sure was fun.
The mechanic difficulty of the first three phases is definitely highly dependent on your exact DPS numbers. For instance, if your DPS lines Manifest Nightmares up with 70%, and one of your intended soakers gets it, then they'll have to make a split-second decision on whether they should try to soak the Delirium or call for someone else to get in it. But having slightly more DPS (or slightly less) will prevent the mechanics from overlapping that way.
Compared to the rest of the fight though, P4 is actually really stable and predictable. If you can survive the Hysteria transition and have enough DPS to break the shield, then you've got it!
Things went quite well at the 50% transition from the outset today, we still needed a bit of practice at Phase 4 once we were getting into it reliably, but it went down on only our fourth or fifth 'proper' phase 4.
I am going to be opening a 5th account unless one of my 2 inactive ones has been inactive for 2 years, I need to check that. I last played them in WoD so it's possible.
Sylvanas said:Ah champion, I wasn't certain you made it out of Orgrimmar. If the traitors know of your service to me, they'd have put you in irons...or worse. Saurfang's ill-considered challenge may have ended the war prematurely, but it doesn't matter now. Countless souls h ave been fed to the hungering darkness. Though I cared nothing for the living, I did pity the Forsaken. For the great injustice that made them what they are. I understand the cruelty of fate better than anyone.
But despite all I taught them, they stubbornly clung to hope. To life. They will learn the truth, along with all the rest.
My bargain with Azshara will yet bear fruit. The armies of Azeroth will fight her master, and he will line their streets with corpses. In the end, he too will serve Death.
Enough reflection. There are preparations to be made. Nothing lasts. When next you see me, you will understand.
Seems like that's where they want to be going at this point, but the legacy content may not allow it for a while. I wouldn't be surprised if that's part of why it looks like we'll be heading to alternate realities soon. In the Shadowlands and the Emerald Dream, the Alliance and Horde don't really have any reason to exist and we can work together there while they work on some long-term retooling of Azeroth.
Seems like a lot of that is just early work for 8.3. Even the heart questline isn't having us meet Wrathion directly even though he's being referenced.
That's not always the case, they've added items and models into the game way earlier than they're intended to be used more than a handful of times. Tons of stuff in Legion comes to mind. It's possible there's going to be more quests released over the weeks but I wouldn't personally count on it.
