Vulpera look amazing imo. Great mount too.



Horde deffo won this round. I like the mechagnomes and if Tinkers are real Ill make a Tinker mechagnome, but thats about the only class i would make one I think, they seem too specific(?), I dunno... feels weird to have a robot warlock for example.

edit: uh oh, from mmo champion:


  • Reach Exalted with the Rustbolt Resistance
  • Earn Achievement The Mechagonian Threat
    • Complete the following Mechagon Island quests: “The Legend of Mechagon,” “A Quick Ear Hustle,” “This is Our Vault Now,” “Let’s Get It Started,” “You Must be This Height,” “Machinations for Mechagon,” “Only the Best Will Do,” “To Mechagon!,” “Prospectus Bay,” “We Come in Peace…and Profit,” “The Resistance Needs YOU!,” “Rescuing the Resistance,” “My Father’s Armies,” “We Can Fix It,” “Drill Rig Construction,” “Send My Father a Message,” “Welcome to the Resistance,” “Operation: Mechagon – The Mechorginator.”
Yeah I havent done Mechagon dungeon and my guild is dead so guess im SOL >_>

This is repost from the 8.3 patch thread in Gaming.


I just resubbed for WoW Classic about a month ago and I dipped into retail and realized I had the entirety of Legion to play through. I've been slowly working through Legion working on Suramar (I hate this so far, this city is a jumbled mess of dead ends, stupid quests, and forced stealth), Broken Shore, and trying to find groups to run the Legion raids because I never saw the content. I just grabbed BFA for $30 because it was on sale and now I feel overwhelmed with the sheer amount of shit I have to catch up on. I can't imagine what coming to this game for the first time ever must feel like.
Well, the nature of the game is that most of the content outside the current expansion is pretty much irrelevant. So you don't really have to catch up on any of it.

The mechagon dungeon is not hard and will likely be easier once 8.3 releases. Ya def do not need a guild to run it.

WTF you doing Bliz? :( They even banned the casters who didn't say anything and pulled his prize money. I was kind of excited for the new content drop too this really took the wind out of the sails for me.

Oh my bad there's a thread about that already in gaming:

I understand that, I've been playing WoW since release but I stopped after Warlords and completely missed everything from Legion on. I just want to see all that content I missed even if I trudge through the entirety of Suramar, which I'm doing now. Illidan and the Tomb of Sargeras are some of my favorite parts of the old lore so this entire expansion is basically made for me.

Ahh. Legion was quite good, it's a shame you missed it when it was current.

Is the class design still horrible? I want to get back into this, but tbh if my class (ret paladin) is still boring to play then I won't bother.
Yes, it is. Still using the largely awful redesigns as the base class design, and unlikely to change significantly, not least which because modern Blizzard just can't do complex class design. It's why PvP's been at an all time low of depth/enjoyability since WoD came out.

Aye ain't worth it coming back if you didn't enjoy your class during early stages of BFA.

I do hope they change things around come 9.0

iI am flabbergasted, dumbfounded, I am completely flumoxxed at the experience I just had in wow...

I just spent around 4 hours if not more doing Operation Mechagon with a pug. Oh no, 4 hours if not more in a pug, what sort of horror story do you have for us Rhaknar?

I...don't. It's a wonderful story. We were 5 people that had never done it, only in about 400 ilvl, we wiped a ton (especially in the first half), but nobody ever sniped at anyone else. Nobody pointed fingers. People owned up to mistakes. The group never fell apart, we even took long breaks because someone had to grab a smoke, or a shower, or start making dinner, we ported to Boralus and flew back for repairs (you cant use repair mount in the second half of the dungeon)... and we still finished it in good spirits. I honestly havent had an experience like this in WoW since... vanilla? cata/wrath? I am honestly shocked, and it's a shame it happened in the wake of the Hearthstone shitshow, as it's the most positive thing Ive experienced in WoW in many years.

Oh and the dungeon is fantastic btw, feels like a actual 5man raid, which I never thought the Kara mega-dungeon did.

Alright thanks. I'll just sit it out and wait until 9.0 then.

Honestly, they'd have to do a complete 180 for me to come back. Maybe I'm expecting too much.

I guess I should ask now since I'm in the middle of it. Do the Suramar mobs stay at 110? Should I just work at 120 and finish Suramar at a later time? It seems awfully time consuming when I could be working on unlocking Argus and leveling and earning gear instead of all this cash I don't need atm.

I would definitely get to 120 first to make all the Legion stuff easier if you're just in it for content tourism. You can always come back. That's exactly what I did. Got to 120 before grinding out Broken Isles Pathfinder. At 120 you'll also easily be able to get into the Legion transmog raid runs.

1000 pets collected DONE !
I had to level multiple missing professions (and some even twice), do some shady achievements, send an alt army to collect charms and even level an alliance to max level... But it's done.
I had to brag somewhere : o

Grats. You are very lucky. Most pugs would have broken. It's probably a testament to how hard it is for 400s to get a group in Mecha that they were willing to tough it out.

Yeah, I'm gonna catch up on BFA content and run stuff with my guild while I still can and work on Suramar later. The place wouldn't be so bad if they didn't have 9000 quests and some of them just straight up require you to dump thousands of mana into a person just to move the chain along. Also the constant running back and forth across the entire city map to talk to 1 person and then turn in a quest. This entire chain was dreamt up by a sadistic person.

Congrats! I’ve been over 1000 for awhile now so I totally know how annoying some of that is.
I still need to finish collecting some of the new ones from 8.2, but I’m kinda hoping that there will be some cool new pet content in 9.0.

Indeed new content is always welcome, especially since Gnomeregan and Stratholme have been quite fun. I also hope they'll resolve or advance considerably the shadowy figures plot, maybe in the next pet dungeon (Blackrock) ?

My dude trying hard to dodge and he got a whole two races working against him.

Lor'themar: Thank you again for leading our forces in Nazjatar alongside me, Thalyssra. Your insight and courage were key to our victory.
First Arcanist: It was an honor, Lor'themar. I am relieved the war is finally over. Now you have no excuse to refuse my invitation to visit Suramar.
Lor'themar: Well, uh... I have been away from Silvermoon for some time. No doubt my people require--
First Arcanist: Halduron has assured me that Quel'Thalas is quite secure. And Rommath said that if you put up a fuss, he will teleport you to the Nighthold himself.
Lor'themar: It seems my closest allies are conspiring against me!
First Arcanist: Would it really take a conspiracy for you to spend time alone with me?
Lor'themar: No, my lady. It would be my pleasure.
First Arcanist: A suitably chivalrous answer, Regent Lord. There may be hope for you yet! Perhaps I can even teach you to relish the... simpler joys of life.
Lor'themar: Perhaps you can, First Arcanist. Perhaps you can.
First Arcanist: I will accept, if you will stand by my side, as counselor... and friend.

I've heard that so many times from random people over the last two years.

Even people that normally wouldn't say such a thing.

Boss fights are seldom a representation of a beings actual true size. Just like things you see in cinema and in game might be different.

It's been established that the old gods we fight are just fractions of their true size anyway. The sentient tip of the iceberg, more or less.

I did Mechagon on launch week with a group of friends. We were definitely undergeared (3 people below 385), so it took us a few tries to get all the way through the dungeon, but it was some of the most fun I've had in a 5 man in years. The simple-yet-challenging fight design definitely recalls BC and Wrath era dungeons for me. I had forgotten how much fun it could be to go through a challenging 5 man where your main obstacle is just clearing the fights, instead of beating a timer.

If you can find a good group for it, I'd recommend giving the Hard Mode version of the dungeon a shot. Beating Hard Mode King Mechagon an incredibly awesome experience.
