update: A lot of this is outdated now, but I made a new post about the datamined changes if anyone's interested.

----

A couple days ago I linked a video here with suggestions for Legion, but then deleted it. I found I'm not very good at voice-overs. Here's attempt #2: hoffahoff.blogspot.com

I wrote a few posts about baseline changes and soon I'll head into talents and glyphs. I'm taking a break from WoW soon so I don't burn myself out any further on Warlords. It feels good to get everything off my chest before then. Check out the blog if you enjoy this sort of thing, and feel free to respond here or there and I'll get back to you.

I would if i didnt want to get glad this badly. Having a glad title opens up so many gates that you wouldnt even have guessed. I picked the worst season to do his but i have to. I need to get glad somehow.

Nice to see something from you again Hoff. :)+rep

I miss all this Ret stuff, but even last season when I was doing well, I never thought to myself, "Wow, this would make for a great movie!" I think that goes to show it's not enough for Ret to be good. Ret needs to be fun (as does PvP in general).

I would if i didnt want to get glad this badly. Having a glad title opens up so many gates that you wouldnt even have guessed. I picked the worst season to do his but i have to. I need to get glad somehow.

It would be great to head into next expansion with a current Glad title. Good luck, gonna be an uphill battle.

Don't give up man, everyone thought I couldn't do it either but I proved them wrong. Keep moving forward, you will have a lot of bad queues compared to good ones living the ret dream but stick to your goal.

Done with glyphs. I'll probably tie everything up tomorrow and that will be that.

My goal with this blog was to gather all our current problems in one place and give each a simple paragraph or two explaining why it's a problem and how to fix it. If I continue to write between now and Legion that might water down the original project and make me continue to feel burnt out even though I quit the actual game. I'm relying on you guys to make it into the beta and give the devs the feedback they'll so desperately need on whatever Ret changes they have in mind. :D

I intended to ignore all the beta stuff, but so much for that I guess. Here's what I think of the recently datamined alpha notes if anyone wants to take a look.

I know that you said this quite some time ago, but I still wish you the best whole-heartedly! :) Good luck!

Because the random name generator might pump out Lortfanden, which sounds like a pretty generic fantasy Warrior name in English, until you realize it means "Shit Fuck" in Danish.

A very interesting read. I really like your ideas! :) And yes, even that last part about ability names.

Might of Virtue, Virtue's Blade, bla bla bla. Geez, can they get more sloppy? xD

Also, why the hell remove *Exorcism* in an expansion called Legion where lots and lots and lots of *Demons* are coming to crush Azeroth? :(

Meh. As Jimjim said, we cannot truly judge something until it is complete, but I hate to see how poorly our new talents were made and named. Why are we getting pruned even further? Ret was already a spec with ONE baseline cc, and p.much ''nothing else''.

Thanks, Hollow. Legion is still very early in development, but I think it's better to voice our concerns too soon than too late. If anyone has their own feedback I encourage you to tweet it to @WarcraftDevs. Or if you're jaded and couldn't be bothered I totally understand that, too.
