Bye, bye, World of Warcraft. Cya in August!
And welcome back, my life! After two months of quite an intensive World of Warcraft addiction, I'm free. So let's sum up some observations from playing the Legion DLC.
At first, I need to say that I'm not some hardcore fan of WoW. I didn't read the books, and no, I didn't play on WotLK. The first DLC I played was Cataclysm then Warlords of Draenor when the movie Warcraft was released and now Legion. However, I already bought the Battle for Azeroth DLC, so when it is released, I'll get back to WoW. Why? Just to try some DLC right from the start, because nobody will have equip, nobody will know what to do, so it'll be no problem to continue playing even after reaching the max level.
Yeah, it was too late for us to start playing Legion because it is already dead for newcomers. I'll show it to you on an example:
On my Demon Hunter character, I reached 935ilvl, and there was no other way how to get better equip than to do Antorus, the Burning Throne raid on normal or higher difficulty (or maybe some PvP, but I don't like PvP). But when I got into Premade Groups to search for some people who want to go it on normal, I always encounter some "link curve or not inv," "940+ ilvl" and blah, blah, blah... I just reached the dead end. Everybody had some awesome equip and wanted just to go some ultra-fast runs to get transmog, so nobody wanted to accept some active girl who just wanted to get better eq to be able to join something better. 942ilvl was all I got.
And BTW that "curve" thing is some achieve you get when you kill some boss in that raid on heroic difficulty. HEROIC DIFFICULTY! THEY WANTED IT FOR NORMAL, OMG! F****** F****!
What I like on Legion
It's more user-friendly when you need to do some quest. When you're near your objective yellow dot will appear on the map, so you know its exact location. And if it is in some cave, different floor, etc. the dot is grey, and there is a little arrow to tell you if it is up or down.
There is just one equip for all talents. It'll just change its primary stats.
All you need to do to change your talent points is to be in some resting place.
Each class has its weapons for every spec, so you don't need to farm better ones once you get 'em all. You're just upgrading them with artifact power.
You can do dungeons on Mythic+ difficulty. It offers more challenging experience when doing dungeons.
When you're fresh 110lvl, all you need to do to get some better starting equip is world quests. Those even help you to get more reputation to get some achievements or to unlock some new stuff.
Once you finish the main quest lines on one character, there is no need to do them again on another one.
What I don't like on Legion
Farming reputation. You need it to be able to use the flying mount, and even some quests depend on it. I hate that it is not account bounded.
Long boss talks you can't skip in some dungeons. The most annoying it is in mythic+ where it is wasting your time limit.
Getting some account bound item for a different class than you have/are playing.
Opening flight masters on every character again and again.
In the first gif, you can see my main. Her name is Mikasasukasa (Yeah, there is a similarity to "Mi casa es su casa" in Spanish, but I had something more anime related in my mind.) and she is a Blood Elf Demon Hunter - a new class in Legion DLC. Demon Hunter is super cool, and I really love to play it.
It's like me. It's cheeky, sexy (maybe), deadly (muahahaha) and can't dance (Yeah, I stripped her).
It has double jump so you'll get almost everywhere. No hill will stop you.
It has a Glide. When falling, you just press the spacebar to spread your wings, so there is no need to walk around to find some way down when standing on some Mt. Everest. Exploring the map is quite annoying when you have no flying ability, and you are not allowed to use a flying mount, but it's not a problem for Demon Hunter.
It's melee character. I somehow don't like playing casters. Well, I also have 110lvl shaman, warlock, and paladin, but demon hunter is top.
It is just damage or tank, and both are quite strong.
It has a lot of AoE spells. Well, it has its pros and cons. Pros prevail, but when there are three melee characters in a Mythic+ dungeon with the Explosive affix (While in combat, enemies periodically summon Explosive Orbs that will detonate if not destroyed.), you're fucked, because AoE doesn't work on these orbs.
It has just a few spells. Yeah, I know that every class is not using a lot of spells very often, so it should be no problem, but I hate it when I need to create more binds and stuff just because there is a lot of shits. DH has no shits, so you know all spells pretty well, and it's much easier to remember them.
All classes with stealth are fucked when playing against DH. There will be no free surprise attack because DH can see them.
I played it that lot that I even obtained the class mount when I was recording gif material for this post! It's such a creepy bat.
And I mustn't forget the Allied Races!
When purchasing the Battle for Azeroth, except 110lvl boost for one character, you'll obtain a quest to recruit new races. For Horde, it is Nightborne and Highmountain Tauren. However, to be able to get these races you must complete an achievement. It consists of getting reputation level to Exalted with Nightfallen (Nightborne) and Highmountain Tribe (Tauren) and complete the main quest line in Suramar and Highmountain. If you haven't play Legion yet and you want to, I recommend getting the Nightborne more because in Suramar the reputation is farmed much easier than in other locations because it has pretty long main quest line.
If I focused on farming reputation much sooner, I'd get them both, but until my subscription ended, I got Nightborne only. When creating a new character, there is one more button to choose Allied Races. The new character will have level 20.
I created female Nightborne Priest, and she's a pretty hot chick. Isn't she? (Yes, I stripped her again.)
And just for fun. Do you know what racial spell Nightborne has? You'll never guess! It'll cast some grimoire which is a mailbox! Such a useful spell... :D
