Last night as we were cranking out our weekly H Nighthold farm run, there was a semi-lively discussion of Legion -- mainly Patch 7.2 but also Legion in general. No great insights, but the comments did start a few chains of thought for me, focused on the whole idea of "content" that is Blizz's main … Continue reading Is quantity content?
We have had a little over a week with 7.2 and I am extremely underwhelmed with it. If pushed to come up with one reason, I guess it would have to be that it is just more of the same bleak Legion never-ending grind. Some random thoughts and observations: New artifact trait system.

Lots going on today -- short post. Today Blizz announced the opening of the Patch 7.2 PTR. I am often very hard on this company, but I am giving them a lot of credit for hewing to their promise of chained patches and new content. I am someone who sets great store by keeping one's … Continue reading Of patches and promises
