Welp, looks like Blizzard's gone full on night elf snuff porn again.

As always.

Man the Alliance kind of got shafted on the races... I guess the Voidelves have a newish model, but the Yellowed Eyed Draenei and the Darkirons are pretty boring. Both the Light Draenei and the Elves are kind of an asspull if you ask me, they haven't been around long enough. Especially compared to the unique models that Nightborne and Zandalar trolls have and the time taken establishing all three of the Horde's races.

Not the sub races I'd have wanted. The fact that you have to literally do quests with a main just to fucking unlock the ability to create a new character AND THEN have to complete the full leveling experience from 1 to 120 to earn a distinctive Heritage Armor set for that race is quite frankly bullshit of an extreme proportion. That's basically not even content at that point, just another chore.

The Titanic Might thing makes me wonder if it's going to work like the Legendary Weapon systems. Given that they are putting less effort into leveling armor models in Legion I can't help but wonder if slowly evolving armor with raid unlocks and what not is the next course. Sort of a jump in logic but the wording looks that way with the whole Heart of Azeroth thing.

I like that we basically get a Horde Island (I refuse to call them continents) and an Alliance one which should prove to have faction unique leveling experiences. The other islands all look kind of bland. Although I will say some of the weird "The Old Ways" druid stuff in Kul'Tiras looks interesting, pirate Vrykul look rad as well. They should have been a subrace though since the Alliance races are totally disconnected from the story and zone...

All and all, it's sort of good that we are ramping down because the stories epic scale was getting a little insane. It's odd that Argus doesn't have any real focus after being shown, it's odder still we are getting this whole full scale Lordaeron assault as our launching point for the story. I mean, I get it... but everything just seems so totally scaled back and disjointed that it's sort of hard to get excited about it. Theres no big bad reveal, no reveal in the cinematic of the new zones... other than the same old faction conflict story. They better really bring something to the table with this because it's hard to get hyped even if it is likely best to take a breather from the power scale issues the game was starting to get.

Good cinematic and trailer.

I'll inevitably be disappointed with all the Alliance losses (poor night elves, but at least those Cenarions got what was coming to them), but for the moment the hype is real!

Shame about no ethereal bifactional race like the pandaren. They'd totally work well as mercenaries and whatever.

Don't worry, only three more hours until you have to worry!

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

A waste of time, a waste of emotional tension, a waste, if you fail to grasp the significance of narrative, of money.

Haha. I stopped playing WoW months ago and stopped coming here as well but the moment i saw the trailer, I knew Fojar would eb ranting about it.

Wonder what this means for the Blood elves. Apparently the Eastern Kingdoms is going Ally while Kalimdor is going Horde.

While I believe the point of missing external threats to be bullshit with N'zoth and Azshara around I like the new zones and Zandalari.

Is it just me or were there no blood elves in the defense of UC? The bowmen look like Dark Rangers to me.

So, do you believe that Quel'thalas has or will have another civil war with Lor'themar chased away? I mean, the factions do supposedly totally control their continents now.

We'll have to wait for the details (from the novel I guess), but right now it makes no sense for the Horde to be able to not only conquer the rest of Kalimdor, but also burn down Teldrassil.

Well faction war it is.

With Horde Burning Tel'drasiil for...some reason.

Maybe if they just keep it as bland as possible with no Sycophantic yesmanning I'll be able to stomach it.

Ugh, another faction war?

I bet the expansion is gonna go like this. One or two patches of pure faction war (that just suddenly shows up) until the big baddie (Old Gods) show up and we will have to once again put aside our difference for like the fourth time to fight the big baddie.

Also, logistically, how the hell is the Alliance or the Horde still around. In the last 20ish years they have fought around 5 or 6 global life-ending wars. How the hell do they still have any manpower or economy to function? And how the hell is the Horde gonna burn down Teldrassil?

I really hope the void elves get normal skin and hair color options. Right now they look identical to the death knight blood elves, even their ears get darker at the tips.

Thumbs down

Another expansion around faction bullshit pretty much means that George Lucas has a greater ability to learn from feedback than Blizzard does.

This. So much. Fuck off with the faction crap already, Blizz! We're not 12-year-olds anymore.
Gonna sit this bullshit out, just like i did all of WoD.

Wake me when the Old Gods show up...

I wonder how big our 2 'continents' are. People already were complaining about the BI feeling small and cluttered which was likely in part due to the greater view distance (BI are the size of Pandaria). If these 2 areas combined equal the BI/Pandaria they are going to feel really damn small.

You can have an idea by checking the trailer at 2:12:


They are around half of Broken Isles each.

Thrall should have died in Legion, his character is so done.

Bringing Vol'jin back in any form is also a massive copout, means Horde lost nothing in Legion when the Alliance lost the last good male human alliance alligned character - Varian.

Horde burns down Teldrassil
Alliance attacks Lordaeron

Something about how this is worded doesn't feel right.

Horde has another 100% total victory like Theramore/Hillsbrad, Alliance gets to "attack" an occupied Horde land... the Undercity better be completely unrecoverably destroyed or this is more Horde favourtism bullshit.
