World of Warcraft: Legion

(Note: I am aware that this was announced several days ago. I have been trying to collect my thoughts about this so that it comes out coherently instead of me typing “OH MY GOD” over and over again.)

Most of you have likely already seen the below video:

Yup! Blizzard is putting out another WoW expansion, and so far it looks like it’s adding some fairly interesting new features. There’s going to be a new zone (The Broken Isles), class order halls, and artifact weapons (you can apparently wield THE FUCKING ASHBRINGER).

What I’m looking forward to, though, is the new hero class: demon hunter.  They are looking incredibly badass. Kind of disappointed that there are no new playable races, though. Where are my playable vrykul, Blizzard?

I will probably have more thoughts on this as new information becomes available.

It was recently announced that Blizzard will be premiering the cinematic for the upcoming World Of Warcraft expansion, Warlords Of Draenor, on August 14th. The event is set to take place at 9:30 PDT at Ace Theater in Los Angeles. According to the website:

A storm of iron is headed Azeroth’s way—be among the first to witness its fury at the world premiere of the Warlords of Draenor cinematic! Join Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime, Chris Metzen, and World of Warcraft designers Ion Hazzikostas and Brian Holinka for the grand unveiling, streamed live from the Ace Theatre in Los Angeles. But that’s not all—we’ll also host a live interview with the WoW developers, announce the Warlords of Draenor launch date, and debut the first episode of a new animated lore mini-series: Lords of War. You won’t want to miss it!

They’ll also be livestreaming the event at WorldofWarcraft.com for us sorry bastards who don’t live in LA, though those who actually attend will receive a key for the beta. Unfortunately, since I do have a day job, I will not be able to view it myself since I will be at work. But rest assured, loyal readers, I will definitely be talking about it when I get home.
