    What is everyones hope/dreams for our community come shadowlands? This is meant to be fun and hopefully maybe some of these happen.

    Hopes:
    -With the big changes to leveling/the squish coming, I hope this opens up even more content for us 70s to do. While doubtful, I would love to see if we can get into Raids/dungeons from cata/mop/legion etc.

    -All leveling brackets levels 1-50 merged. EXPoff and EXPon get joined together. With the squish, there is no reason to have sooo many brackets. This also greatly expands, potentially, the player pool for whatever the new brackets will be. With the increased rosters comes increased chances for twinks/skilled players being in the battle.

    -Improvements to war mode scaling. War mode is a great idea, and it could use some tuning. The level squish opens up a great chance since were not trying to balance a level 1 all the way up to level 120. seeing as we will have 1-60 levels to balance, this may be a great chance to open up world pvp further.

    -New gear! BFA opened up great new gear chances for us twinks. Suddenly level 60 or lower items became hot commodities, and Trial of the crusader farm runs were the thing to do!

    -Slightly adjusted raid encounters. Some raids, like Black Temple, had fights that were damn near impossible with the BFA patch.

    Fears:
    -I would be so sad if the level 70 legendary weapons became useless. In fact, I would be crushed if I had to give up my Dual Blades of Azzinoth
    -New Gear! this is a double edge sword. After spending years perfecting each and every twink in my roster, i am both equally excited and equally dreadful at the idea of slowly re-gearing all of them.
    -My greatest fear is if we remain locked out of BGS. The tech is in place to let level 120s scale there level down to there refer a friend counter part, and let there gear/ability scale down accordingly. This makes them effectively comparable to a twink. If 120s can que into all the brackets, why cant we be invited back in too?



    Please share with me your hopes for the upcoming expansion for our community.

    As best we can tell, 70s will likely end up level 27 after the squish. So scroll through this list and you can check individual dungeons and raids required levels to see what you'll have available.

    You can also check what zones and quests you'll have available. It really looks like theres gonna be a huge boon of pve content for twinks to enjoy, so get excited about that.

    As for instanced pvp, I cant offer you much hope but then, no one can. We wont know for a while.

    I like this! And I really only have 1 hope outside of the points you mentioned. That is, that we do not lose 280 flying! They have already taken so many things away from my 70’s that I have spent good money on over the years, and to lose 5k that I have spent on over 20 toons is a month of free wow for me...

    Hopes:
    • DKs finially get in a good spot now that we'll have apoc
    • BG queues are integrated again
    • Gearing options are widened, ilvl requirement on some gems are taken off seeing they all scale
    • We can still raid
    Fears:
    • I run out of bank space

    My 3 main hopes:
    • That pretty much all twink brackets will consolidate under level 50 twinking.
      - Level 27/29 twinks will have basically no abilities and will be unplayable if you have any braincells.
      - Level 50 twinks have access to almost full class toolkits as well as covenant abilities.
      - Gathering as many old brackets as possible under one big new bracket would be amazing for activity and would be a new golden era for twinking
    • That "chromie time" will make gearing really interesting for level 50 twinks.
      -
      Would be cool if all 1-50 dungeons and raids would scale to your level and drop level-appropriate gear. This would make BiS lists a mix of gear from several different expansions and allow for a lot of build diversity.
      - This would also open up a lot of content for pve twinkers
      (I don't even know if this is how chromie time is going to work. If someone has alpha pls confirm/deny)
    • That the pvp meta will be fun.
      -
      Hopefully DH/DK and pve specs like assassination and fire aren't viable and everyone will be playing like sub/frost/disc
      - I want fast paced pvp where sustained damage and dampening isn't important. Big bursts. Big heals. CC matters.
      - Also a little bit more unpruning pls blizzard tyvm

    cant say I agree. Lower lvls will suffer from lack of abilities. I’d say 10 lvl bracket ranges should suffice.

    Anyway my wishlist is:

    - re-merging of xp-off and on

    - no unfair grandfathering of Gear once SL hits. At least nothing major.

    - Epic Gear should always have better stats then blues. And blues to greens. I hope they correct this because I hate seeing greens with equal, if not higher stats to epics.

    - Professions to be relevant again for lower levels.

    -return of Honor and Justice currency, and relevant gear rewards.

    - As for endgame, I’m hoping to see AP grinds, mission tables, and all similar bullshit like that cut from the game. I shouldn’t have to worry about not being able to catch up to other players if I decided to take a break from the game or play less.

    -no more insane stat climbs at endgame. The stat difference from the first raid tier to the final raid tier shouldn’t be exponential. If anything, I believe it’s completely fine if a specific BiS item is from a raid from a previous patch. It shouldn’t be about item level. Items should be unique with unique stat combinations and abilities. Plus it gives incentive to play older content.

    - this won’t happen, but I wish for blizzard to encourage players to try different brackets. They provide different class balances, gearing, and strategies. Each bracket is almost like it’s own expansion. And if people played several different brackets, it would keep them engaged and subscribed longer.

    - no more warforging (supposedly gone for good), or any other RNG on top of receiving the item you want. If you want gem sockets and cool tertiary stats, they should be guaranteed with the item you’re setting out for. Also hoping to see more endgame gear with socket customization like BC-Mop, and for more slots to be enchanted.

    - return of traditional secondary stat reforging, but for all levels.

    - this one is kind of niche and obviously wont happen, but it’s my philosophy. Less focus on graphics and detail, and more on providing an engaging experience and making an expansion more plentiful. I personally believe game visuals (across the entire gaming genre) should have stopped being as much of a priority for studios at around 2008. They should have utilized increased processing power and storage by polishing gameplay and expanding on the world. But idk, maybe studios are just creatively bankrupt.

    I never even considered the idea of a level 50 twink. I am intrigued. I have some abandoned 85/100 twinks that I would not mind doing projects on.

    This would also be awesome. I enjoyed pvp at end game in BFA initially, untill one day i realized i was winning multiple pieces of new, epic gear for every slot that had barely any difference. I recall one day getting so many pairs of the same glove i cancelled that account that very day.

    I agree I to hope we see many more customization options stay alive and well
