    Dragonflight Expansion Now Available for Pre-Order (rel. Dec 2022)

    Looks like the expansion is finally getting an Official-ish release date of December 2022, this year.

    Pre-orders available here:
    https://us.shop.battle.net/en-us/product/world-of-warcraft-dragonflight

    Collector's edition here:
    https://gear.blizzard.com/products/wowcgp0011-dragonflight-epic-edition-collectors-set

    The $90 version also comes with wings, hearthstone, pet, cosmetic helmet and a new mount

    This is pretty interesting as most people predicted that the Wrath Classic launch would have delayed the Expansion release until at least early 2023. However, according to Blizzard's website (https://wowclassic.blizzard.com/en-us/) Looks like Wrath Classic still slated a release for this year, so I wonder how much of a time buffer there will be between Classic and DF expansion release.

    Boo.

    And by "boo" I mean "I only resub for the rocket chance, and unless there's a credible and significant change I'm not going to bother grinding an army of toons up just so I can queue them all once per day". I'll be interested to see how the rest of it pans out.

    The $130 epic SL/DF edition thingy is pretty interesting, even at the current sale prices for base SL it's seemingly not an awful deal... which is remarkable I hear myself saying at $130. For lazy mortals who dont farm gold for gametime, that is. (me)

    edit- oops, not the physical collectors thing, meant the one with SL included and 2 months time and 2 boosts.

    Didn't the Dragonflight already give up their power before? So wtf will this XPac be about, a bunch of emo Dragonkin crying about how it used to be in the olden times?

    It's about new talent trees and cool looking zones

    Meh, might just buy the online version since they did away with selling the boxes in my area.

    If my mount doesn't come with a side-cut, black/blue/purple hair and armor pads from hot topic, I'm not playing.

    Do they not ship the collector's edition? Is it a local pick-up deal? That seems unlikely.

    Most of the places where I live did away with the cd type of products. So, it’ll be a bit rare to find one copy.


    Na, still can get it shipped from walmart or amazon. they’ve kind of lost respect with me buying the physical copy. Still get the df expansion, just not the physical copy version.

    Yet more evidence that Blizz has not learned form their mistakes: fervently hurling out yet another half-baked xPac before it's ready JUST so they can rake in the $$$$.

    Let’s just hope wow doesn’t adopt the Diablo immortal loot crate system.

    I’m sure some scummy exec in activision is trying

    And yet, here you still are - who really hasn't learned from their mistakes here?

    this is a lie - the 60 boost from the DF presale comes geared in i-lvl 148 which is a SL subpar level character boost
    A Dragonflight-Level Character Boost
    a 148 boost is not even geared to que normal SL dungeons, ill geared to even go to catch up zones. there is no squish this time.

    blizzard is also not including SL into the DF package.

    when SL presale was done the 120 boosts were rather well geared. you would be able to do a huge skip, go into heriocs and the eternal palace LFR along with three previous raids. you were also able to go straight into nazjatar and mechagon content

    i will wait maybe 1 month into expac before i consider anything.

    ATVI quarterly earnings report is coming up. DI release and DF early release along with the money made may not have made the report cutoff, but they will more than likely to addressed in the forecast and questions from the Q&A

    i dunno... I kinda like all the broken shit the first few weeks, it's more fun for me than just hunters being broken when it all gets "fixed". At our level, I mean - who cares about endgame?

    I don't(and almost never have) played end game in any expansion. Usually just quest an ungoldy amount of alts and solo old content until i found how fun it was to level lock toons, the incredible grind to gear them and than tear into dungeons on them like a bat outta hell i will say, i will probably pre order the lowest $40 game so i can get the cool Dragon pet Drakks(spelling???). Not at all intrested in what little they have showed. I also am not excited by change in any facet of my life and prefer things simple. I'm not a fan of the talent changes. I wish(and i know they could never apply themselves) woulc have an option just like WM. Talents as they are now or swith to the point tree as you wish.

    you can always just wait for the icyveins guides if you want someone else to make your talent tree decisions for you
