The art book has a quote from a concept artist who worked on, among other things, nailing down the look of the Legion architecture and environmental assets. He says their direction was to move away from the techno-industrial Legion of BC, and incorporate a more elemental, magical look. One result of this is all of the organic-looking fel stone building material, which looks almost grown rather than hewn.

Personally I really dig it, the stoneshaped look gives me evil Titan vibes and makes the Legion feel less "extraterrestrial" and more "otherworldly/hellish."

What are the new Order Hall Tree options in 7.2? Is there a 3rd Legendary Unlock one?

I really hope there is given I've just got my 3rd Legendary and it's insanely good for Ret. ¬_¬
Sorry fam.

Jesus Christ if they're seriously going to let us equip more legendaries down the road then they're going to have to extend tier set bonuses to include boots, bracers, and belt.

Fuck sake. The entire point of many of Legion's gearing/itemisation changes (not to mention them not bringing back Reforging) was to make it easier to go "Item has higher item level? It's an upgrade" - Legion has been a disaster in that sense.

Which art book are you thinking of? The CE artbook doesn't have any quotes like that.

It's such an easy handwave too.

The Outland variant probably had soldier type demons who had to learn how to maintin their structures by themselves due to the normal class of engineer-type demons being absent.

One supposes it could be justified that on Outland the Legion was using its mo'arg technicians on the front lines because it had to assemble stuff on-site and teach Kael'thas' blood elves how to re-purpose naaru tech, while the current invasion doesn't need to bring them along because the size of the portal in the Tomb allows them to teleport in prefabricated structures and machinery.

In which case we could then perhaps still encounter them operating things on Argus despite their absence on the Broken Isles and it wouldn't seem quite so strange. After all, there weren't mo'arg and gan'arg running around on Quel'danas either, which arguably makes sense because the Legion's strategy as the Sunwell didn't involve building new forge camps on-site there either.

Just Order Hall Resources greyed out due to not having enough, I think.
