Default Gamescom 2015 - Open questions thread

Hey there.

Just wanted to make a thread for open questions concerning anything the Blizzard presentations at the gamescom.

There are often things that might be overlooked, or are unclear, so I wanted to allow you to ask here in case you are wondering about something.

Since I'll be also try the games in the next days, it's possible that I can look some things up.

My question is actually for clawhand.

How do you figure out what you're going to do when you're going to a gig like that and how busy are those types of functions?

Will the new tmog update be account wide items?

Will the artifact weapons and all their variants mean there will be no weapons that drop in Legion?

is 9 dungeons the expected amount is for Legion?

Will Apexis style "Dailies" make a return, will it be the older system, or something entirely new?

Will cosmetic options for gear become more prevalent, or tmog focused such as the clan armor of WoD.

With WoD being criticized for having only two raid tiers, and Blizzard boasting more dungeons, will we see more patches with dungeons?

Is this expansion part of the plan for yearly expansions, or will this one last longer like Wrath?

Will there be legendaries this expansion?

Is this expansion similar to Cata in that the whole world and leveling is affected, or just the end game zones?

What weapons do the demon hunters use? Do they only use glaives?

This is another class that uses leather and boasts mobility. Is it hard finding a niche for rogues besides stealth?

Illidan, Maiev, and Wrathion, have all been in certain ways, allies and enemies. What relationship will the players have with them?

The factions are going to be at each other's throats after two expansions of trying to work together. What exactly are we supposed to think about the faction conflict amidst all of these threats? About Varian's words to Vol'Jin and the Horde rebellion?

Dalaran was boasted as the Alliance's big moment in MoP, with Khadgar being Alliance in WoD. How should the fans feel about the developments in Legion?

It's been difficult juggling Alliance leaders into the story, to the point of Varian being the "leader" of the Alliance. What prompted Blizzard to use Greymanne?

The Legion website has a list of audio drama, comics, and videos. Are these the only out of game stories? Are these replacing short stories?

Will the Demon Hunters tie into the upcoming Kael'Thas story?

While the expansion is focused on the Legion, there are several antagonistic groups. Are there concerns about fitting these groups into one game?

How will the Class base differ from the Garrison table of WoD?

What about outdoor content? Dailies?

Treasures for leveling experience this time too?

End game content? (outside raiding)

Will we see wrathion in the legion expansion.

(no i am not going to say flying).

What happens with the artifact weapons when you swap specs? Does the weapon automatically change with you? Do you need to do the quest to obtain the artifact for each spec? Do you only get one artifact, and are stuck with whichever one you pick?

Critical information.

Another artifact question comes to mind.

Since each spec gets its own artifact weapon, what does this mean for the specs that have, at least until now, supported multiple weapon-based play styles? Since, for example, the Frost DK artifact is going to be a pair of runeblades, does this mean 2H Frost is no longer supported? And how will this affect Fury Warriors and either Titan's Grip or Single-Minded Fury?

Are there any plans for quivers to make a return still?

Any thoughts on the possibility of faction-specific class orders, since some of these orders are lore-wise tied to specific factions?

I fear this thread missed a bit my intended purpose... This wasn't for any interviews, but for things that I could look into ingame or could have answered due to the media briefing. ^^'

Anyway, concerning the Legion expansion, you likely saw already the Interview I've done...

Well, as for as the press work for blizzplanet goes, it has primarly to do with the Blizzard PR Team. The interview slots as we got them were a close thing... So we had a clear orientation with the media briefing and the given interview slots, or the expansion reveal. Aside from that, everything was open to me to do as I pleased. (though, in the end, until now I did nothing besides press work and playing a bit the blizzard games, nothing else... )

As for how busy it's there... The first day is exclusive to press and exhibitors/industry, and even that is quite busy. Though, far more enjoyable than on the public days, as on those it's really full of people.

If you'd like to know more, just feel free to ask.
