Having finally managed to get logged in and play some Dragonflight, one of my favorite things in the expansion so far is all the dialogue available while talking to NPCs, whether they be major figures like Wrathion or Alexstrasza or minor figures like the inn keeper at the embassy who will, if asked, explain to you why there are so many ruined buildings there.
The latest World of Warcraft expansion, the reasonably long-awaited Dragonflight, is now live.
The clock is counting down and the release of Dragonflight is near!
One Tuesday morning late October 2015, I fired up my PS4 and logged in to Destiny with the intention of grabbing bounties, perusing the vendors for any interesting rolls on weapons and armor, and maybe hopping in to a strike or two or mess around in Patrol.
Some games, I knew instantly they were going to be games I would play over and over again. World of Warcraft actually had me within minutes of my then-girlfriend showing it to me.
I'll be up front -- I thought the Mission Table was the best innovation in Warlords of Draenor. Now, many years later, the news that it won't be in Dragonflight fills me with a kind of joy I wasn't aware I was capable of feeling -- a boisterous, almost terrifyingly primal exultation, like unto that you would expect to feel just before you started singing and a musical number just sort of happens.
The first Allied Races we got were unlockable by doing Legion content, and the others all required Battle for Azeroth unlocks, which means as of Dragonflight we're talking two or three expansions ago. World of Warcraft certainly seems to be trying to make leveling easier and more streamlined, but that also makes those older expansion unlocks for Allied Races more and more extraneous, in my opinion.
Honestly I've really enjoyed the Primal Storms so far, and I got one of my Warriors from level 50 to 57 in under two hours this week.
The second phase of Dragonflight pre-patch is complete and the Tempest Unleashed pre-expansion event has begun!
The idea of 'class fantasy' in World of Warcraft has been bandied about longer than the actual terminology for it, which gained prominence during Legion.
