Why did it take me so long to realise what Sylvanas is doing here.

VAL'KYR.

She'll be redeemed by GOOD VAL'KYR.

To bring all other classes into the fold, we're removing one of the three specializations, with its abilities being merged into the remaining ones, for a total of two focused specs for each class. This will allow us to really step up on class balance, and really condense what a class is all about.

I can't even say this if this is a joke or not.

Looks cool.

I read something about cat form getting an upgraded model or something, as well as some of the faction leaders. Were any screenshots shown during the reveal? Where do I find them?

Apparently they've got screenshots of Genn and Sylvannas with new models on the Legion site, but it's down for me so I can't see them.

Wowhead has some of them.

But be warned, the night elf cat form looks like a wyvrnn for some reason.

I think some of you need to hold off on your unbridled lore rage until we know waht happens in the Broken Shore....given what we know now it seems we're going to be losing a few established characters.

You scared me.

I'm just now coming to terms with the fact that I just recently sold a lot of my really cool staves and polearms on my Hunter after coming to the sad conclusion that I might never be able to use them again. Hearing about the fact that Survival Hunters can now use melee weapons makes me want to team up with Kairozdormu and go back in time to stop myself.

I feel like we have waaaay to little to talk about, so the rage is really unnecessary. I despise random Legion invasions and AU Gul'dan inexplicably going to our Azeroth and finding our Illidan.

BUT

The "lesser" parts of the story seem truly promising and maybe Blizz will "Blizz" this xpac like most of them and let BL have little part in the xpac - giving room to some exciting shit.

I kind of dig that we know almost nothing about the story of the expansion. Not knowing much kind of excites me. Genn being involved again is good.

Khadgar leading the Kirin Tor all of a sudden seems a bit jarring, though.

Overall I think this expansion looks pretty cool. Cluttered as fuck, with the feel of several expansion ideas at once, sure. But if Blizzard actually manages to pull their shit together and deliver the game with as few cut features, quest lines, and dungeons as possible, it might be the best thing we've gotten since WotLK. And even though it's retardedly lore-breaking, I'm excited about the new class weapon feature, but mostly because my main character is a druid, and I'll enjoy the cosmetic options.

Also, as always, Blizzard delivers when it comes to environments. With the lore in such a ragged state, Blizzard's world designing team are the guys who keep making me want to keep playing the game.

Genn looks like English gentleman from 1885.

Sylvannas looks like her old model but it's just HD-er.

Major lore characters I feel may very well die in Legion:

Varian
Thrall
Tirion
Sylvanas
Illidan, for good
Gul'dan, for good

I loved Northrend so much, so I was a bit mirthful when I saw those screens that looked reminiscent of Howling Fjord.

Especially when I would navel gaze how much I missed being there every time I went back to do something from there like Argent dailies.

Box art already on the site. Usually box art isn't revealed until much closer to the expansion's release? Pre-orders coming maybe?

REALLY curious on the Survival Hunter 2handed weapon. It seems it's a polearm, but I can't see melee hunters coming.

Maybe javelin-like polearm? As in throwing and shit? *0*

It's scary because it could be true.

Anyway, you should write a ticket or use the item recovery system, blizzard is pretty chill on that.
