World of Warcraft Legion - What’s next panel

Patch philosophy in Legion:

Steady Stream of Content

A living World

Varied Patch structure. Big patches (6.2) , small patches (6.2.3), medium-size patches (7.1).

Patch 7.1.5 - Small Patch

Legion’s first small patch.

System updates, rewards, Evergreen content. Evergreen: No tie to any particular story, tone etc. relevant to all of WoW.

Artifact knowledge catch up: Purchase with order hall resources if behind.

Brawler’s Guild returns. Dozens of new bosses. Rumble: Occasionally a raid level boss spawns. Pulls ALL players in que to fight. New currency: Brawler’s Gold. Buy things to help everyone, such as a graveyard in the brawler’s guild, booky stuff. Basilisk mount is from Brawlers.

Micro holidays.

Ahn’Qiraj Remembrance Day: January 22nd. Basically the old AQ stuff. Whatever faction turns in more in the country gets their banner flown over AQ for a year.

Volunteer guard day: Salute a guard, take their position. You become a guard, attack enemy NPC’s etc.

Patch 7.2: Tomb of Sargeras

Continue the class order campaign

New faction: Armies of Legionfall

new WQ’s in the world and on the Broken Shore itself. Aiming for class themed ones.

Story: Build a base and plan the assault.

Similar to Sunwell build up. Build a base: Nether disruptor, mage tower and command center

Building and upgrading them unlocks new content, rewards, traders, class specific quests, WQ’s, treasures, world bosses etc.

Legion Assaults: Inspired by pre-launch invasion. Invades Broken Shore lands. Replace WQ’s temporarily in the areas (Val’sharrah, Highmountain etc.). Still counts for emissary WQ’s. When wrapped up on the ground, do a 3 man scenario to attack the Legion attack ships.

Immortals Sami Zayn (Djinn/Ifrit), Alexa Bliss (Fae-Dryad), Seth Rollins (Futuristic sniper-ninja), Antonio Cesaro (WWII Dieselpunk Sergeant), Dean Ambrose (1920s Gangs of New York street brawler) and Roman Reigns (Mercenary).

Probably will be used as a banner for the blog ouob

Game headcanons: 
If you’re playing as Dean, his attacks tend to be extremely limited in reach unlike Roman (a melee fighter), Seth (works best long-range) or Cesaro (All-rounder), however he hits fast and //extremely// hard when he does connect.
