    Default BlizzCon 2017 Megathread

    A megathread for people to discuss what's happening at BlizzCon 2017, for both the current expansion, as well as the next. I will be updating this throughout today and tomorrow.

    What we know:


    • WORLD OF WARCRAFT CLASSIC ANNOUNCEMENT - HOLY SHIT
    • New Expansion - Battle for Azeroth
    • Two new continents - Kul'tiras & Zandalar (3 Zones Each Continent - 6 New Zones)
    • Level cap raised to 120
    • New dungeons & raids (duh)
      • 10 Dungeons
      • Each faction has level-up dungeons
      • Everything unlocked at 120
      • Mythic Keystones are here to stay
      • UI Improvements

    • Warfronts
      • 20-Player Co-op Raid against NPC armies
      • RTS Style
      • Build structures, research upgrades, and lead troops

    • Allied Races
      • Unlockable Playable Races (AKA Sub-Races)
      • Starts at level 20 (instead of level 1)
      • Race-Specific Heritage Armor (Unlock @ Level 110) (Transmoggable)
      • Six Races at launch
      • Examples: Nightborne (H), HightmountainTauren (H), Zandalari Troll (H), Void Elves (A), Lightforged Dranei (A), Dark Iron Dwarves (A)

    • Leveling Improvements (Coming in Legion 7.3.5)
      • All zones (including dungeons and rewards) scale in level (to an extent)
        • Zones have level ranges with caps
        • Level through expansions in any order
          • Outland/Northrend (60-80)
          • Cataclysm/MoP (80-90)

    • Island Expeditions
      • 3-Player Co-op Gameplay (Role Agnostic)
      • Repeatable, but random (?) content
      • Play against advanced AI opponents (NPCs, but not chumps)


    • Azerite / Heart of Azeroth (Artifact Medallion) (More info at a later panel)
      • Unlockable traits for gear (similar to Artifact weapons, but not as linear)
      • Traits that are unlocked carry over from prior gear, to newer gear

    • Instanced PvP
      • Two new arenas (Tiragard & Zuldazar)
      • New battleground (Seething Shore - off the cost of Silithus)
        • Similar to Arathi Basin, but random spawning capture points (~3 active at a given time)

    • World PvP (More information coming in the future)
      • Update the system to reflect the 2018 world
      • Remove PvE vs PvP server division
      • Unified servers with PvP toggle
        • Instanced into that type of realm with others

      • Bonuses for playing with PvP enabled (because it can be more inconvenient)

    • Miscellaneous
      • Six additional character slots per server (no mention of increasing the total limit of 50 characters per account)
      • You will be able to increase the size of the default backpack if you have an authenticator attached to your account (no ETA)

    Holy shit... classic servers were announced. This opens up an entire new (old) chapter for multiboxing.

    I can't even right now....

    I have my concerns about how classic servers will affect the player base for the "current" expansion. At the same time I am intrigued by the concept of stagnation on those servers, meaning you're not in a hurry to get geared before the expansion comes out and can really just play at your own pace.

    Good things and bad things. We'll see how it goes.

    Also: Who here boxed on vanilla? Anything except shammies even worth considering?

    My questions would be:

    • Vanilla skill trees and everything or just vanilla content?
    • How far back into vanilla? Right before the first x-pack or Day 0(ish)?
    • Vanilla forever or expansions at a specified pace? (At some point, even vanilla will get old again.)
    Now playing: WoW (Garona)

    yeah, you are right, he did the pvp rank with mages and priest, but he also played warlocks which was also my first team :-) I started multibox with Outland datadisk.
