Fazit der BlizzCon

Die BlizzCon ist vorbei und ein paar sehr interessante Aussagen sind dort getroffen worden:

 
· Blizzard is already manufacturing discs and putting the final touches to WotLK

Upcoming Patches
· Patch 3.1 will be the first content patch of the expansion and is already done. It will include Ulduar raid instance (10 and 25 Man)
· Patch 3.2 will add a new and still unknown raid instance to the game.
· Patch 3.3 will introduce Icecrown Citadel and should also resolve the storyline of Ashbringer.

Upcoming changes
· In Patch 3.1, ground mounts will no longer dismount in water but will swim instead.
· 10-Man and 25-Man sets will be part of the same set, you can complete your set bonuses with any part of each set. (Updated set stats available in the Raids & Dungeons Panel post)

Upcoming features
· The Dual-Talent spec feature will let you switch between your two specs without having to go back to town. You can perfectly do it between fights in a raid, however it won’t be possible to switch specs in the middle of an Arena Match. Your keybinds and glyphs will be saved and automatically switched as you change your spec. An itemrack-like mod might also be added to the game to make switching even easier.
· New dances will be added in a content patch, one of the objective with the dance studio isn’t to just add new dances but also let players combine moves to create their own dance.
· Guild ratings might be added in the future, guilds could receive a rating based on their PvE and PvP accomplishments. Achievements based on guild accomplishments could be added to the game as well.

PvP
· They also want players to be able to level up in battlegrounds through XP rewards in addition of honor. Daily quests will also be added.
· They want to bring back competition into Battlegrounds, they’re working on a new rating system to help with that and are also working on a way to let guilds compete in battlegrounds.
· In the future, players will be able to queue in Arenas and Battlegrounds from anywhere in the world.
· Strand of the Ancients is getting changed from 10vs10 to 15vs15. The amount of Vehicles is also being doubled.

Secret Project
· Blizzard’s "secret project" is confirmed to be a new MMO with a brand new universe


Fassen wir also zusammen: Die DVDs zum Addon werden also schon gepresst, was mehr als deutlich darauf hindeutet, das Blizz den Termin zum 13.11 einhalten wird.
TierSets kann man aus der 10er und 25er Version untereinander mischen um den Setbonus zu erhalten. Sehr schön, da man so Droppech kaschieren kann. Schade allerdings, das 10er und 25er Version demnach die gleichen Setboni haben.
Die PvP-Änderungen finde ich schon sehr lustig. WAR erntet für genau diese Features nur gute Kritiken und Blizzard zieht nach. Konkurrenz belebt also doch das Geschäft. Schade nur, dass Blizz neuerdings immer erst durch die Konkurrenz zum handeln animiert werden muss und nicht selbstständig wieder Vorreiter bei Innovationen sein will.
Ansonsten ist Leveln via PVP eine sehr spaßige Geschichte und auch das Anmelden via Minimap von jedem Ort der Welt ist sehr komfortabel.

Und nun können wir ja MMO-Raten spielen, was das nächste MMO von Blizz sein wird:

World of Warcraft 2?
World of Diablo?
World of Starcraft?
World of Vikings?
