My wild guess for shadowlands goes like this:If they want to keep 2 weeks between release and opening the raid, release will be december 21th and raid will launch january 4th.If they don't mind having 3 weeks between release and the opening of the raid, I think release will be december 14th and raid will still launch January 4th.Basically I think the raid will launch in 2021 and they change the release date based on that.
One other thing I noticed on beta that they need to fix, is when your character is autoflying with wings (on a quest), the character is swimming while the wings are flapping. Swimming, in the air? LOL. Looks stupid. Would rather have them make the character levitate, like the priest spell, slightly tilted a bit forward. That would work imho.
So here is my guess for the release date:November 24thSame day the book drops, we get Shadowlands. This would give us a 5 week Pre-Patch (if im correct) with the questline dropping on the last 2 weeks.The issue: Thanksgiving, unless it's not much of a big deal.December 1st One week after the book, Shadowlands.The issue: Mythic dropping on the 29th?December 8thTwo weeks after the book, we get Shadowlands. Mythic is pushed back only one week, drops on January 5th.Personally this is the only date i see no issue with, i think anything earlier than Nov 24th is highly unlikely, it wouldn't make much sense due to the book and several other reasons with the extra time and if the expansion drops late December, we would have a 10 week pre patch which is highly unlikely in my opinion, the longest we ever had was 8 and it was way too much.On an other note, i think that we will probably get the new date very soon, like this week or maybe next week. They cannot wait much with the new date and i do believe that they were already coming up with ideas for the new date before the delay was announced so they most likely already know. Anyways, love these videos as always. :)
November 24th is American Thanksgiving week, a fairly major holiday. I doubt it will arrive then.November 17th or December 8th would be the most likely dates for me, 15th at the latest.
If there's a year that you can get away with tucking in close to the holidays, it's gonna be this year.
"The cannon will be shot by the end of this expansion" *Flynn arrives to Azshara, takes out his pistol and shoots the cannon, cannon blows up destroys the goblins homes and leaves them homeless again*
I admit I've been wondering about the Bilgewater cannon myself. I wonder if it was originally supposed to be used to shoot that Azerite beam at N'zoth we ended up channeling through the player.
"Mean time"...OK Dad, I get it.I have to disagree with Evitel on the idea that players using gear from previous tiers because it is better than current tier "is cool."A recent example is the Ashvane's Razor Coral trinket. A 430 ilvl trinket outperforming (assuming it's used correctly) just about every other 475 ilvl trinket? Not cool, in my opinion.
