Once upon a time dear reader, I was a member of the mighty Horde. I fought and lived and breathed Lok’tar Ogar, and followed my Warchief with unwavering loyalty, and then…
How late is too late to start fixing things?
So, with 4 days left before Legion’s big launch day, Blizzard have decided to come out and start asking for feedback on the changes to the Hunter class.
All throughout the past 7 months or so, I’ve been entering competitions on WoWHead, MMOC, MMOG etc etc in order to win a beta key.
So with the expansion about 4 weeks out from the time of writing, and after the pre-expansion patch has gone live, now would of course be the most useless time to get a key to check out the changes.
So, just over a year after switching my main character from my Prot Pally, who had previously been my raiding main character for 6½ years, to my Hunter, it has now come time to do the same again, albeit in reverse.
Thok, the Devilsaur from Siege of Orgrimmar in MoP is a gorgeous big beastie. The good news, for BM hunters at least, is that with 7.0 he is now tamable!
So, how does one go about getting through to Thok, given that he’s over midway through the raid instance, and Galakras, the famously un-soloable fight lies in between you and he?
So the pre-patch, 7.0.3 is now live across all regions, and with it come all the changes being made in prep for Legion. So after a full day with the patch, what sort of things did it bring? What did you think about the changes?
So the changes are upon us, and with it the classes you knew and loved have been changed, to one degree or another, forever.
Or at least until the next expansion 😉
This also means we say goodbye to the best thing about Warlords of Draenor:
So after finding out BM was in a kind of a weird place, where it was decent enough to play, but not brilliant, and discovering the reason why my Arcane & Multi-Shots weren’t showing up on PTR (more on that particular disaster towards the end of this article), I’ve decided to move the MM preview up on the schedule ahead of the Survival preview.
So the PTR now features the Legion pre-expansion patch, which brings with it all the new systems and class changes ahead of the expansion’s launch itself.
So given how badly I’ve wanted to get onto the Legion Beta, I was very eager to get on the PTR and test out the changes to Hunters, especially given that this expansion sees Hunters receiving more wholesale changes than any other class has ever received in the game.
Following on from an earlier article, I’ve still been thinking hard about which class and spec I want to choose as my main for Legion, and perhaps beyond.
I’m not one for rapidly changing classes or specs, having played my Prot Paladin for over 6 years before changing to my Hunter last year.
