One of the best World of Warcraft expansions marked by the addition of features like Artifact Weapons, well-made new zones, Class Halls and a superb storyline. Everything in Legion is perfectly designed and will not disappoint you.
The true outcome will be determined by post-launch content and how well it integrates into the already thoroughly satisfying experience, but for now the Burning Legion's invasion of Azeroth has inspired a landscape of greatness.
Legion is an excellent expansion (after the hated Warlords of Draenor) and is the best thing what could happen to this living game colossus. For former players, Legion is a clear reason to return back to Azeroth. [Issue #268]
Legion is the best expansion since wotlk/cata. Fantastic story, engaging quests, and the usual WoW. I enjoyed it for about 4 months until recently Nighthold comes out. There is nothing to do in this game at this time except showing up 3 times a week for Mythic Raids.
The legendary system and artifact point grind hurt the game so much that even many top-end guilds quit. I hope they would do better in 7.2.
Here is the thing about this expansion. You have got garrison like mini games (similar like in WoD) where you send your champions on various missions. The rewards from these missions include gold, resources, artifact points and what is more important THEY PROGRESS YOU FURTHER INTO YOUR CLASS STORY. What does it mean ? Well generally it means that you can't progress in this game in your own pace because you are stunlocked behind a time-wall and there is nothing you can do about it. Your champions first have to complete missions for you to get new items or abilities for your class and those missions take up to 6-8 hours time. So I can't just play freely on the day I like or when I have free time because I am simply BLOCKED FROM PROGRESSING FURTHER ! I have to wait several hours for the content to unlock. This is getting similar to EVE Online model where you also have to wait for your skills to progress automatically in time.
If that is to be the direction that WoW is heading right now ... then I am leaving this train on the nearest station. Seriously this game at the moment feels like a chore. It feelks like I have to come to work and do some boring stuff that I simply have to do. Right now I should log in to WoW just to click my class hall and send my champions on another mission so that I could finally do my class mission. But I am already bored. I do not play video games to keep on passing some stupid timewalls that game developers impose on a player. I do not want to login to WoW just to constatnly uncheck those stupid missions.
Another thing is dumping down the skill system. I mean the last time I was in normal dungeon a protection warrior was doing more healing overall than I did on my resto druid ! I have been playing from Vanilla to Pandaria and I have never seen thus before ! Seriously - wtf has happened to this game ??!! He was doing this heal to himself and I had a really hard time catching up with him. They have simply made healers redundant not only in regular missions (because right now this game is much more focused on a single player) but also in normal dungeons. Basically if you are smart then you can solo most of the dungeon content by yourself as a tank now.
I have been month to this expansion and I am back after two years and I am already bored with this game. They even managed to stunlock your professions because right now you HAVE TO visit all the dungeons (even several times) or visit some stupid places that normally you wouldn't like to go but you HAVE TO. It does not feel like an open world game anymore. It feels like a prison run by a guard who tells you when to piss, when to sleep, when to eat and when to go for a walk.
Besides this ... again and again Blizzard is just unable to manage their servers. There is a mini hacker group that keep trolling Blizzard with some DDoS **** and they simply can't defend themselves. As a result official EU and USA forums of the game are full of topics about ppl having serious connection issues. And yes you guess it right the regular response coming from Blizzard is "check with your IS provider" even though you have no other internet issues besides playing WoW.
I have still 1 month to go with this game and that is it. I am done with this game ... and this time forever. I came back after 2 years to some totally messed up lore with nothing making sense anymore (I feel too uneasy to even describe in a nutshell what happened with the lore in WoW but believe me - IT IS TERRIBLE). I won't be resubbing this. If any veteran wanted to come back to WoW then I must say that you are too late - there is no more World of Warcraft. This game is not the game it used to be. I mean it's core, it's flavor evaporated along with totally demolishing its PvP system. It's just gone. You no longer have to fear elite mobs when questing, CCing in dungeons or watching your mana. It's gone. You just rush forward, yawn and destroy mobs with total ease with anything else progressing automatically - similar to EVE Online. The last WoW that felt like WoW was Mists of Pandaria even though I didn't like that expansion very much.
