The hot topic in the WoW community these days is the coming (…soonish? Augustish?) of the 7.0 pre-Legion patch. I always felt that these pre-expansion patches kind of robbed the expansion launch day of half of the featured goodies and half of the fun, but I see why they do it.
It won’t be a whole new game, of course, but 7.0 will be a significant game-changer to the current rut that players have been in. I liked this video for listing 39 important changes coming with this patch:
Of greatest interest to me is the class overhauls and the new transmog system, while I will kind of mourn the general gold nerfing to garrisons. I know, I know, it’s what “everybody” wants, but I’m still relatively new to the whole garrison thing and it kind of stinks that I’ve just now gotten it up to speed in making me a little bit of money in time for it to be nuked. Plus, it certainly robs some of the enjoyment out of building up a garrison when Blizzard makes it blatantly known that it should be forever abandoned once Legion arrives.
Man it irks me when devs roll out some high-profile feature only to completely abandon it later on. I don’t really know how I feel about class order halls yet.
