WoW: Shadowlands (9.1 is out!)

So is 9.1 everything we always dreamed of?

Resubbed today just to take a peek. It's not blowing me away.

They are very formulaic in their design these days. It could be seen as a reskinned Nazjatar/Broken Shore/Argus/Tanaan.
Oh well, I am playing Retail for the first time in nearly ½ a year. #partoftheproblem

It sure beats doing World Quests at least.

It’s not promising that it took them this long to put out so little. We will see what the mega dungeon and new raid brings but so far it’s underwhelming. My biggest annoyance is having to redo my legendary because I couldn’t see into the future and know that Blizzard was going to add raid specific gear with sockets that would be crucial.

Flying achieved!

Gratz on Flying! No more annoying dismounts while running thru the forest.

I'm enjoying it, but I'm not blown away by it.

Dropped my sub today after reading the California court filing.

Yeah. I am not subscribed but any barely audible rumblings about coming back to WoW are long gone.
Also, I am so not surprised though I had hoped that due to Blizzard's size there would be some level of protection in numbers. That Blizzard is only 20% female at their size says everything.

I know the video game industry as a whole is wildly male dominant. Blizzard though has the resources, role diversity and specialization, and clout that it should have at least double that percentage of women employees. No wonder WoW's story has been a mess for years. (and they keep recycling classic ones with a slap of Earl Schieb)

And this on the heels of Diablo 3's new season tonight.

I haven't paid real money for my WoW sub for a long time (tokens), but I am done with it. Will just miss my goal of having 1 million in gold, but it's just not worth it.

FFXIV is quite good!

I had just started to get back into WoW after not playing since the beginning of the year too, but this sh*t is inexcusable and Bliz’s response to it shows that they don’t intend on doing anything meaningful about it unless they’re forced to. F**k’em.

Good news for the two of us still playing this dumb game: patch 9.1.5 will come out Nov 2.

There isn't much new content except for Legion Timewalking and Mage Tower 2.0. This is an enormous quality-of-life patch that also promises to be a lot more alt-friendly than SL has been so far.

If you're looking to go back and do old content, this is a great patch. If you're looking for new content, wait till 9.2.

MAW INTRODUCTION SKIPPABLE
Players who have completed the introduction in the Maw on one character will be able to speak to Highlord Darion Mograine in the capital cities to skip it on their alternative characters on their account.

Only like 1 year too late..

I still play because it is free. Looking forward to the QOL improvements.

Wellactually, SL has only been out for 11 months ...

That said, it feels like I've been playing SL for about three years.

I don't much mind the maw intro, as it's better XP for the time spent than most of the other stuff you can be doing in threads of fate. Maybe if I was doing more than 1 character per covenant I'd feel differently.

Then again, if XP/time is the main consideration I think you don't do Threads of Fate at all.

At any rate, I don't begrudge anyone who does want to do the skip.

How are the QOL improvements for their employees coming along?

The union buster law firm is "working" on it.
