I’ve just started playing the Battle for Azeroth beta. For an eternal World of Warcraft fangirl like myself, it’s about the most fun I can have with my clothes on. I haven’t been able to test out a lot of actual quests yet (at the time of writing, the intro quests into both Zandalar and Kul Tiras are bugged) but I have been able to look around and marvel at some of the sights in the incredible new zones we’ll be exploring, as well as get a feel for the changes to my pet favourite class, the same class I main – Beast Mastery Hunter.
And, while I’m as excited as everyone else for patch 8.0, the BFA pre-patch that will bring us class changes as well as a range of other things to help us prepare for the expansion’s launch, which will probably go live on 17 or 18 July, but you didn’t hear that from me. And yet, I can’t help but feel a deep amount of regret as, with the end of Legion, I say goodbye to the one thing I loved Legion most for – the way I interacted with my pets.
