Didn't even realize there was a new thread per expansion, I can dig it. I play on Terenas as Alliance and just started a Horde toon on Thrall.

is where most of the EJ people went after they sold EJ and it turned to shit
I didn't know this, that's interesting.

re: Legion - taking my troll mage to 110. Going to be my main and likely only focus for this expansion. Only other thing I would consider would be an alliance character to see both sides of the story but that all depends on my motivation.

I had 8 100s in WoD and I actually regret that to an extent. There's no real need for it, and constantly switching 'mains' as I did really stunted my character progression. Never got the legendary ring, probably would have if I had just stuck with one guy.

Well it looks like Blizzard is shipping far fewer collector editions. NOBODY in town has it. Best Buy, Target, Gamestop, not even Walmart. None of them have any stock on hand at all. In past expansions there were boat loads available on launch day.

Maybe they realized finally they are making way too many.

I was so annoyed that I had to do the prequest stuff before legion content. I had done it all on one toon but I faction changed so the line reset.

I've been away for a year. That prequest stuff brought me up to the same level as everybody else in my guild. They busted their ass for a year and I am equal to them in a day. I LOVE IT.

Would be a first, I remember the initial starcraft ones were on the shelf till well after the second one was released. Diablo ones weren't around that long and while WoW ones would go scarce in store, could always get them online for awhile after.

I pre-ordered the collector's edition a little bit over a month ago from Best Buy, and I received the game this past Saturday. I had to order from Best Buy because Amazon was sold out at that point, but I still get 20% off at Best Buy. Maybe Amazon took too many pre-orders (they've done it before), or Blizzard's distribution gave them the wrong fulfillment count?

Not sure, checked earlier and no stores anywhere near me are showing any stock for copies on hand, that hasn't happened with a blizzard release since 2004.

When it rains it pours. Just lost 78000 gold to a scammer claiming to sell his refunded Legion key from the Digital + Hardbound CE promotion for gold. I agreed to pay four months sub time in gold for it and he offered that I pay half up front and half after. After I traded half however he quoted me some rule saying gold can't be traded for game keys so reporting him won't do anything, put me on ignore and hearthed.

I was unaware of this policy and as a result don't expect to get the gold back but opened a ticket anyway. He clearly knew what he was doing was a violation in Blizzard's terms so I don't think it unreasonable to request that the ill gotten gains be removed from his account, if nothing else. But man. I've been so stressed out with life lately that I was really looking forward to playing with friends coming out of the wood works for the new expansion but I'm getting screwed at every turn and can't seem to catch a break. *sigh*

report him for sure, at worse you should get your gold back with a warning (assuming all discussion done in game), at best he'll get a suspension for your troubles.

In other news, been digging this expansion so far. I chose Stormheim as my first zone just because it looked and sounded pretty cool based on the description. It was a good choice so far... they have fun quests again like they did back in Mists. I was kind of surprised how easy / short it was to get the artifact weapon but at the same time for people with a lot of alts, it's probably a blessing.

Overall mostly positive things to say. The Order Hall was awesome (at least for my paladin), it's great to be back to Dalaran, and my first set of quests took me right back to Northerend. Was a big fan of WotLK so was good times. Only real gripe I have is some of the way they highlight quests now is not as straight forward, or it was glitching. Wasted a bit of time because I didn't run over the exact right spot for one of the quests. Otherwise, having a good time so far!

Blizzard generally doesn't return gold from scammers.

If someone promises something in game and then doesn't provide, they generally have been doing so recently as they have the chat logs to verify what was said and done.

We have been investigating this and learned that there was a shipping issue which impacted some players who pre-ordered their CE from select retailers. We’re currently working with these retailers to address this issue and make sure these players get their copy of the CE as quickly as possible. We hope that this will be resolved shortly for you and any others affected.



And for laughs:

I can't do the Druid artifact quests because I'm hostile with the Cenarion Circle. Archdruid Hamuul Runetotem won't speak to me. Can you guys turn him into a neutral faction NPC please? I know this is karma for the hours spent murdering Moonglade Guards but this is literally barring me entry from WoW Legion. I'm pretty sad right now. : (

Boo!

This issue has been hotfixed.

Cenarion Circle has decided to make peace with everyone.

You should now all be able to get the quest.

Sucky situation, interested in seeing how Blizzard handles it, though. Keep us updated!

I think overall they're fairly good at fixing the situation. If the conversation was via chat, I think you'll have a decent chance of success.

I remember back in the day when raid leaders would steal loot and bolt. I saw it happen personally a few times (luckily I can't remember a case where it was something I was waiting for). I heard a few success stories where the /rolls were in the chat and those people got the item. Could have been made up I suppose.

how did other people feel about their class artifact quests?

I loved the storyline of the balance druid artifact, but I was surprised by how tough I found it in ilevel 700-720 gear; can't imagine trying to do it in 580-600 questing greens/blues straight from Draenor. there was one stage of it where I was down to like 2% HP.

I thought the quest was overall short, but like I said good for people that have lots of alts.

It was easy for paladin... I selected the protection artifact and I had a mix of dps & tank gear... went through tanking type scenarios (or at least it seemed like it) as ret and only died once. I may have even been prot spec but without a shield, can't remember how I chose to do it.

I mainly chose prot because overall at least back in the day, being a tank just made getting into groups a lot easier and in general being a good tank was a lot more rewarding as there are less of them in a raid. While my main was always DPS, I think I will stick to prot this time around.

They I SS'd it.





And he basically confessed to knowing he was breaking Blizzard's terms of service even if it had not been a scam so I'm hopefully his account will be penalized in some way.

They should be able to look up the details too. The biggest downside right now is they probably have a huge backlog of tickets with Legion just being released... could be some time before you hear anything.

Doubtful you'll see anything back. The usual trick is to offload the gold, from the account, and if blizzard comes knocking, the perp says 'my account was hacked! you can even see that i change my pw!'. That's assuming blizz even cares enough.

If it ain't brokered through the AH, don't bother.

As for legion, super enjoying it so far. Prot war starter was fun (I <3 swedish vrykul), my class hall is straight out of the Thor movies (spaceships not withstanding), and Stormheim is fantastic. Reminds me a ton of Wrath (the good parts). Keep it comin'!
