In a recent Dev Watercooler feature, Blizzard announced that World of Warcraft Classic realms will run with a specific patch.
In the summer of 2008, the legendary bow Thori'dal, the Stars' Fury, dropped for a guild called Vicarious on Area 52-US. There were two Hunters in the raid. Vicarious Master Looted the bow to a Rogue.
In Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard began what they called "ability pruning." For better or worse, the developers decided that classes just had too many buttons to press.
To me, Legion was far more nostalgic than the transparently nostalgia-driven Warlords of Draenor.
When longstanding members decide to depart, how do you break the news to the guild?
Executive Producer J. Allen Brack caught a lot of heat when he suggested four years ago that players didn't really want Classic realms. "You think you do," he said infamously, "but you don't."
BlizzCon dropped quite a few bombs on the WoW community: classic WoW realms, game-wide level scaling, and a new expansion.
In today's WoW Systems Panel, Blizzard revealed a host of improvements to help players communicate and cooperate.
