    Re: Legion

    Well, I didn't do much of any 7.3 "actual prep" other than cleaning out my "main-alt's" bags.

    I did get my 12th 110, finished Legendary Campaign last week, finished the 12th class mount a few days ago.

    Also, I got Concordance on all three Paladin specs, Demo 'Lock, BM Hunter (for the Power Ascended bonus, naturally), and Guardian Druid (though no bonus.).
    Got very close on Frost Mage, Fury Warrior, Disc Priest, Blood DK (all at the 51 level mark, working towards the last 520m). Not so close on Outlaw Rogue, Havoc DH, Elem Shaman, WW Monk. (Maybe at the 50/pre-400m mark).

    I went around and bought the 7500-Nethershard Repurposed Fel Focuser, bought a few upgrades on things that were slacking (like the 760 relic on my monk, for example), cleared out what I could of the Echoes of Battle (finished a couple sets as well).

    Since I haven't paid much attention to tradeskill stuff for the new patch, I hope it's not tied to what came before - what I mean is, I hope by not finishing the existing questlines I won't get screwed out of doing the upcoming ones. We'll see, I guess. With as f'ed as tradeskills have been this expansion, my gut says "probably will be".

    No, the new tradeskill quests are independent of the old ones.

    I have not yet seen any of the tailoring or jewelcrafting quests (and according to what I'm reading on Reddit, no one else has either, also for engineering).

    Be funny/sucktastic if they were bugged.

    could that be a hint at a certain forum member? Stumbled upon him in the priest mount quest. Maybe it's a pretty common name though.

    Blizz being the rocket surgeons they always are, added a new emissary today without making sure that people could actually, you know, complete it. Fun times.

    Also, their community rep has once again reminded everyone that their heads are still lodged firmly up their asses about flying. Yes, it's so much fun wading through pack after pack of mobs to move from one quest area to the next. Maybe the crabs from Pandaria can come shit out some seashells again so we can move without being gang raped? Or maybe people will just cancel again.

    Emissaries are valid for 2 days.
    There was no point to the change other than to cater to instant-completionist people who didn't want to wait 1-3 WQ resets for a few more quests.

    This. It's amazing how utterly fixated on stupid Blizzard is about flying. OK, make us wait until max level or maybe a few weeks past the launch of new content while we quest, but it's so insane not planning on letting us fly when content gets old. The sole reason I've quite late in the last 2 expansions was lack of, or late arrival of, flying.

    Re: Legion

    The issue is also the zones that they don't permit flying in: Timeless Isle worked OK-ish without flying because it was somewhat open, and you could navigate pretty seamlessly around the island.
    Yes, sure, you had to navigate up the hill and over the bridge, and you sometimes lost "RARE SPAWNED HERE!"-calls because of it.

    But this Blades Edge-style, nooks and crannies-infested piece of rock-crap? No fun navigating that.

    I read the flying statements, and this part REALLY irks me:

    Emphasis mine.

    "skip all the content"? Getting annoyed at pathing is not content - it's just annoyance that makes me play less. Involved quests - THAT is content, and I can't SKIP those. I can get to point X via flying, sure, but if you WANT me to fight to the place - put me in a Warframe like the questline that just opened. Straight to the fighting!

    Jeez.

    Two other good points:

    TBH if blizz made the whistle usable on argus to take you to the nearest port that'd be cool. They did, but gated it behind a reputation.
    I made the same point above: Less impediment in zones, kkthxplz. And I TRULY don't understand why the Argus-functioning-whistle is gated behind reputation. It should be unlocked with the very first questchain in Argus.

    Yep. Plus some of the bosses don't give WQ credit if you kill them were they spawn - you have to kindasorta stand in another spot and hope that your group kills the boss while you leech.

    The one guy that spawns right near Haddox and Raddix (Lieutenant Something?) often doesn't, so I need to drag him a few feet off his center circle when I solo him. I joined a group with the WQ active, the WQ prompt went away, I taunted him towards me where the WQ activated, got yelled at, then the group leader kicked me.

    I rejoined the group when I managed to get the WQ active again, and just plinked at him with Judgment and Blade.

    There is WQ in some cave with one of those imp mohter things and that is about 50/50 on crediting.

    I forget which Argus boss it was, but I killed it 3 or 4 times in a row without getting credit before just relogging and then getting credit. Funny.

    Re: Legion

    With today (and tomorrow/EU) resets, Argus Waystones are gone, requiring instead 3 regular invasion portals to be eligible for the Greater.

    Also, Argussian Reach Emissary is back to 4 now that the full Mac'Aree zone is unlocked.

    Re: Legion

    I read a little bit about what this Dark Legacy is about:

    http://www.darklegacycomics.com/600

    Are the differences in performance between the different options significant (significant being defined as, "If my spec performed this much worse than some other spec I'd be pissed"), or is this a "serious min-max types only" problem?

    Re: Legion

    The first tier of each Relic will give you a free +5 ilvl to your weapon. So +15 just for having unlocked the Crucible.

    The second tier of each Relic is your choice of two randomly generated mishmash of procs or passives.
    This can range from +500 to two different secondary stats, to a bonus of 1500 to a secondary while Concordance is active, to a shadow damage dot, or a heal proc, or an asborb shield or a bunch of other things.

    The third tier is +1 rank to just about any ability with multiple ranks on your Artifact.

    So you could get a Relic that has a pair of bullshit 2nd tier choices (perhaps an absorb shield for a shadow priest or mastery/crit passive) and then get to choose from three random Artifact ranks. Some could be good, some could be bad, some could end up best in slot.

    But you can use the Crucible to preview what the Relic will give you before you equip it, as the ability tree is randomly generated on a per-relic basis. So you could get a crappy-ability Relic (standing on its own) but keep it for ilvl and for its 2nd or 3rd tier results.

    The "planner" on mmo-champ is kind of terrible.
    The one on wowhead requires you to first populate your chosen artifact with the relics you have (or your character profile, if you have a login on the site) and it can pull up your character's currently available Crucible selections.

    Some classes/specs already have set up tables as far as what is "ideal" regarding the selections you should take on the respective tiers. For example BM hunters "should take" the T2 shadow DPS dot (I think that's the one) as it's equivalent to an extra 6 ilvls of damage on the weapon.

    Re: Legion

    BM is all about trait >>> ilevel. So you want KC + damage and the KC +% proc extra damage. The middle tier is pretty much whatever. Is you get one that is +500 haste/mastery though, that shit is golden.

    I've just been going by the recommendations on the Icy Veins class guides and assuming that was probably good enough.
