This week, the gang is back for another romping ride through the latest news and opinion in World of Warcraft!
Blizzard’s Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas is making headlines again, this time in a recent Polygon article. Hazzokostas announced that Draenor will not see flight at all, and this direction includes future expansions. Does flying matter if the developers can create meaningful flight points? When does staying on the ground mount become more of a hassle? And what about all the new flying mounts Blizz is releasing?
Also, in the latest Dev Watercolor article, itemization will be changing in patch 6.2. There are plans to change personal loot so that it’s more competitive to the group loot system, bringing more rewards and making announcements to the raid. Also, the further players progress into Hellfire Citadel, the more they will be rewarded with higher item level loot. Will these changes make a huge difference in how raids are viewed, or is this just a refinement of systems?
