Story As Game Mechanic

classes in legion
Don’t expect major class changes in Battle for Azeroth World of Warcraft’s expansions have become known for their wide, sweeping changes, and systems overhauls every time a new one comes out. Legion was no exception, and perhaps contained the most extreme overhauls as the WoW devs hammered out each class and spec according to class fantasy.

The importance of story I know a lot of players who argue that the story in MMOs like World of Warcraft is less important than the play experience. That “gameplay trumps lore“ if you will, which is an argument I have made myself from time to time.
