This is now an old news, there was a rumor about what will come after Legion, the next expansion, rumors are nothing new, you’ll always see them before new expansions, and you better not to believe in them and wait to see what will Blizzard do.
Still, some details in the rumor makes me wish to see them come true, Gamescom is around the corner and Blizzard will talk about their plans for the future, i’m sure they want to cover all games so they will probably talk about the patch 7.4 and not the next expansion, there won’t be much time to talk about a new expansion, they will leave that for Blizzcon.
Anyway, i still want to talk about the rumor or the “leak” because i find some points interesting.
New weapon types, in Legion Blizzard introduced Glaives to go with the new class, only Demon Hunters can use them, in the rumor they say there will be pistols, flails and spellbound weapons, i don’t know what spellbound weapons mean, but pistols? i think Combat Rogue will use them, also there is a chance for hunters, flails in the other hand could be used by most melee classes, but i think Blizzard will make them just for warriors and paladins.
But i should remind myself and anyone care to read this: all of this is just speculation, rumors and “leaks”, all what i said here may never come true.
New Race/Class combos:
- Pandaren Death Knights
- Human Shaman
- Troll & Night Elf Paladins
- Draenei & Tauren Warlocks
- Pandaren Druids
This should happen, i don’t care if this is a rumor, it is time for some races to get more classes, for example humans should have all classes except Demon Hunters, there is no lore reason to stop them from being shaman or druids, the same for other races, i’m not saying all races should have all classes, just more classes, Pandaren Druids for example is a great idea, both factions will get one more druid race.
1-110 scaling, please Blizzard! let it happen, this will solve a problem for some of us, we want to slow level, or at least we want the zone to remain challenging while we level, right now a player can out-level a zone quickly just by doing quests without heirlooms, and high level player is untouchable in low level zone.
What Blizzard did in Legion with the leveling zones could be the way to go with old world zones, you don’t have to leave the zone because quests went green or grey, keep questing in the same zone, quests will keep up with your level, the same for the mobs.
New class/weapon combos, will Blizzard keep the idea of artifacts after Legion? or will the go back to the old model of crafting weapons and upgrading them like in Warlords? or weapon drop from raids and dungeons? whatever they’ll do, i wish to see some flexibility in choosing weapons.
For example, i want shadow priest with 1-hand mace, i think daggers (even talking ones!) are not a good weapon for priests, they should use blunt weapons, also i wish monks have no weapons! first time i read about Monks as a new class i was so disappointing to know they can use weapons! the fantasy here is monks can deal with threat using only their body as a weapon, no need for swords or staves, just punch the the boss in the face!
Anyway … this is just a comment on the rumor, it may or may not come true, who knows?
