    Or: Hey, bring back 2-handed shamans. Forcing dual wield is stupid. Just let them be able to storm strike... the end.

    It says a lot to me when someone asks a straightforward question like the issue with max level game play and Ion just tap dances around the question. It’s a issue. It’s a mmo, we don’t need Blizzard holding our hands, telling me when to play, how long to play, and where to play. Time gating is consumer hostile. Also what are returning characters to do when they didn’t play Legion? You guys gonna make those races available other then through some tedious reputation going? Maybe a scenario per race? Blizzard did advertise them as BfA races, its on the website. So maybe rework that. Thanks guys.

    I can understand what your saying about the world scaling, but speaking as a Frost Mage it just doesnt feel good. I mean my frostbolt feels like im just blowing kisses at mobs. But even on a few other classes ive been playing, the more I level the weaker I seem to feel. It seems to take longer and longer to kill standard mobs, which isnt fun to me personally.

    It's rather odd that I was doing fine with questing while leveling, not many deaths, not many issues, but then as soon as I hit 120, I'm dying all the time. And all I was doing was finishing up the quests that were left over.

    Man... having some difficulty uploading or something? I gave up waiting and watched this on Twitch days ago... =/
    Good stuff in it though, yay for tradable Azerite gear and other things.

    14:15 why are maxed out player's consirned. At max level you have alot more abilities, so it does make sense it comes down to the of the player

    PLEASE increase weapon drop rate. My mythic dungeon group has cleared every dungeon (save Boralus the first week) every week, thats 29 dungeons, and have had 2 weapon drops in total between all of us. This is going to make the start of raid pretty rough.
