World of Warcraft: Legion Still Entertaining

Blizzard recently released the highly anticipated Legion update which brought players new content and especially new dungeons. Fans of World of Warcraft were concerned that the expansion might follow in the footsteps of Warlords of Draenor and begin to get boring due to the lack of constant updates and even if Legion did a good impression, WoW players were worried because at first Warlords looked good as well but after delving more into the content it started to get repetitive. Well it seems like Legion is the golden one, Blizzards keeps on sending constant updates and the endgame isn’t getting boring even after three months.

The coolest feature Blizzard introduced is the “Mythic+” dungeons which give players the option to gear up without having to do a new raid every night. The way Mythic dungeons work is that they keep on getting harder and harder every time a player beats them, and with the level of difficulty increasing the item level increases as well.

If grinding Mythic dungeons is not your cup of tea, Legion provides players with another way of acquiring high level gear. Quests that are based in the new Legion content scale to the players level, and completing all the quests in the zone of Suramar will give players a big amount of gear score, but even if the player manages to complete all the quests in the Suramar area they can still do daily quests like helping the night fallen elves to occupy the zone. The elves are addicted to mana crystals and they require a different amount of crystal everyday to stop them from withdrawal and transforming.

From what we can see Blizzard is doing a great job with Legion and more importantly players are happy with the expansion. Keeping the new expansion entertaining and fun is the best move Blizzard can do, especially now with the recent Nostalrius controversy.

    In the twilight months of each expansion, they typically lowered the required XP to level by 30%.

    Warlords of Draenor they went a different route, letting you buy a +20% XP potion from your garrison, loot or buy from the AH +300% XP potions (15 min duration) and upgrade heirlooms to lv 100.

    They should scale back the Cata and Pandaria XP required (still would be quick with heirlooms), or bring Legion scaling to the rest of the game.

    Plus Pet Battles, mineral gathering started to give good amount of XP starting late in Pandaria.

    I resubbed after having lapsed during Cata.

    I’ve actually been going back through the content I missed since then on an older character, and it’s kind of a shame they tuned (I assume) the leveling in the other expansion areas because it feels like I’m being rushed through.

    And I have to say, I’m kind of enjoying Pandaria.

    You’re kinda just repeating what Blizzard themselves has said-we’re all waiting post 7.1 to see what their follow-up plan is like.

    As it stands, this has been one of their most confident launches ever.

    I think this has been the best expansion yet. I’ve been a player since the initial beta and have always subbed for the expansions bare minimum. The launch was solid, no technical issues, the design is wonderful and addicting, and there’s tons to do again. Best expansion launch yet, now if they can keep the content drops regular, I’ll never have reason to unsub again.

      I think it’s still to early to be judging Legion against other expansions. As far as the lead up goes, I would say it comes close to Burning Crusade but I’m not sure I’d say it surpasses it yet. The leveling experience has been one of the most enjoyable in a long time, maybe since BC or Wrath and I love many of the changes they’ve made to progression, such as scaling enemies and the change that allows for multiple people to kill a single enemy for credit. The specializations also feel unique for the first time in I don’t know how long, which is fantastic.

      I do think that there is a lot that can go wrong from this point forward. Warlord’s post launch support was pathetic, insulting really, and if the same thing happens with Legion, I think Blizzard is going to lose a lot of customer faith, especially from those of us that have stuck with the over the last twelve years. If they do continue to release good content at a fairly steady pace I believe Legion could become one of the best WoW expansions so far. It all depends on what they decide to do over the next two years.

      Salty, much? The graphics in wow could not even be ran on an Xbox one or PS4 due to how beautiful they are, maybe get a good PC? And how can you say this isnt a good game? Have you played the game? Have you beaten the end game content, all of it? Not unless your one of the few who have, so learn about a game and play it before you trash talk it.

    Maybe a 6/10 woulda been better. Great gameplay and stuff, but the long quest timers that leave you baffled as to why your paying monthly for a game that has so many timers on your quest?
    Theres a cooldown time for your professions, theres a wait period for your main quest, theres a wait timer to upgrade your artifacts power, theres a wait time for everything.
    Who the fuck thought that was a good idea?
