Legion Patch 7.2 – Få et overblik på 5 minutter

Bare fordi patch 7.1 er kun et par uger gammel betyder ikke, at Blizzard ikke har et ton af ting at tale om med hensyn til Legion fremtid. Under en præsentation på Blizzcon gik ‘Game Director’ Ion Hazzikostas på scenen for, at præcisere, hvad der kommer i patch 7.1.5, samt fortælle alle de praktiske detaljer om patch 7.2, som omfatter en Hearthstone-ish Brawl tilstand, et nyt raid, og class-specific mounts.

The Broken Shore questline og invasions

Den største aspekt af 7.2 vil uden tvivl være Broken Shore, som vil fuldende cirklen i Legion ved at returnere spillere til, hvor de først fejlede ved at stoppe Burning Legion. Ting vil forhåbentlig gå en lille smule bedre denne gang…

Clas Hall Orders storylines vil blive fortsat, med  en ny faction kaldet Armies of Legionfall. Med deres samlede styrke, vil de gå på angreb på Broken Shore ved at etablere en ny base-bygning system, hvor spillerne skal vælge at bygge tre forskellige strukturer. Hver struktur giver forskellige bonusser og belønninger. Lad os håbe det ikke bliver ligesom det gamle Garrison i Draenor – det ville være en skandale. Nye world quests vil også blive vist i hele Broken Shore og resten af Broken Isles.

Patch 7.2 vil tillade flying mount i Broken Isles som set i tidligere expansions. For at unlocke dette, skal du ligesom i Draenor fuldføre en todelt achivement som indebærer at udforske hver zone fuldt ud, klare alle zone quests, blive revered med alle factions og meget mere.

Udover flying mount i Broken Isles kan du unlocke dit class specific mount i Patch 7.2. Herunder følger de leakede billeder af alle class-mounts.
