Ok so Legion.

Demon hunter: Sad it's a elf only class I was exited for the class until I saw that. This is the 2nd time night elfs have been given exclusive class. (first was druid) We'll I agree with them not wanting to make a 3rd water down spec I feel like having only 2 races and 2 specs will leave very little diversity in the class and that makes me worry about how well it will age.

Artifacts: Well I think it's cool that we get to level up a weapon I worry about the no weapon drops. Well it can be frustrating not getting that weapon drop you want I do feel like if we get things we want of the boss to easily then we won't have need to run the content again. So that makes me worry about long dungeons and raids will last.

Zones: Warcraft 2 and 3 players get hype

PvP: I am glad they are addressing PvP some. I just hope the fix is good and we don't see Mercenary mode stay around.

Over all based on what I've seen so far I think this expansion can be decent maybe even good but will it do for World of Warcraft what needs to be done???

I'm not sure.

(Next udpate 8-17-9)

Demon Hunter: Lore-wise the Illidari were Blood Elves and Night Elves Illidan recruited/trained to hunt the Legion. The Demon Hunters of Legion ARE those Illidari, so only Elves would have been Demon Hunters. Same way Pandaren cannot be Death Knights: sorry kiddies, you weren't around to muck with Arthas. You were still stuck behind the Mists.

Artifacts: removes the burden of weapon drops. Now you will get "Relics" from dungeon/raid bosses that will unlock talents to make the Artifact weapon more powerful. I don't think they're looking to artificially prolong raids beyond their tier; but, they're definitely looking to make dungeons relevant (more relevant) throughout the expansion. They're not sure they're going to do more Mytbhic dungeons yet, but that's on the table.

Zones: Meh. Gotta have new zones with new expansion. I like the lore approach they're taking, and I agree with the path of having the Emerald Nightmare only accessible as a raid. It's got such a special place in the game's story it deserves a gated presentation, even if only LFR-Gate. Which could be a conspiracy, but Imma not telling.

PvP: MEH. MEH I say. Seriously, PvP can crawl into a corner and go into cooldown.

All the initial guarded enthusiasm I had for the expansion got quashed on Sunday with one stupid sentence from Hazzikostas. They seriously need to stop dressing that man up and letting him go out in public.

P.S. Did you deliberately do Panel 4 as a creepy throwback to Pamela Redpath, or was this a genius coincidence. Because that's exactly what it reminded me of. *shudder*

Coincidence, I had to actually Google who Pamela Redpath was...

Blasphemy. For shame with you. I sentence you to complete Eastern Plaguelands on every alt. That won't give you the original Darrowshire though. The original implementation was 10x creepier.

Don't know if your musical tastes run that far out, but this is the song I can't get enough of right now. So waiting for the new album. With the money I'm saving on WoW subs right now I should be able to afford it.

And of course I can't help but think of a certain paladin...[Speed of Light]

Not bad at all, and the video cracked me up.
