When you feel the MMO itch, so little can satisfy like World of Warcraft can, especially since Korean MMOs can’t be played in South Africa legitimately and other MMOs have either fallen flat or away.
With Battle of Azeroth coming out in August and the mid-year gaming draught approaching, Legion is a great game to sink your teeth into in order to ease the pain of waiting.
There are a few reasons to get into Legion. First off, Nexus is selling it for R199 which is basically a steal since it comes with a month of game time in the box and a level 100 character boost so you can jump straight into the action. Additionally, if you do decide you want Battle for Azeroth later, you do require Legion in order to play it.
New factions have been added to the Warcraft universe, some familiar faces spoken of and some brand new additions. However, to gain access to creating these characters, you will need some account-wide achievements in order to unlock them, most of which involves either completing specific parts of the campaign or reputation grinds. Getting into Legion now to get the grind out the way will be quick and help get the most out of Battle for Azeroth. Also, a month is a good amount of time to bang out most of the story and get a solid idea of where you stand with current Warcraft.
The story of Legion, as an entire game, was amazing; each of the areas had a great campaign for Horde and Alliance that had a tight focus on telling a great story. The story of Legion also covers a lot; from the Queen of Azshara making an appearance and how her influence has brought about the Legion, to the old struggle of Greymane and Sylvanas involving the Val’kyrs. One of the highlights was Suramar, the sense of struggle that is portrayed, and the empathy this story garnered was amazing. It's an epic expansion and it fits well into the lore of Warcraft.
Some complained about how compact the game was overall, especially veteran players who are used to entire continents being added, but as mentioned above, the smaller world is to accommodate tighter storytelling. This was also done to make the raids and dungeons feel lore-friendly and specific, each tying into a story aspect directly. Many found the first raid, the Emerald Nightmare, which dealt with Xavius and the Elves, and with the corrupting of the Emerald Dream. Mechanically the raid didn’t demand too much. We won’t go into depth about the other raids that followed but they were great, not only mechanically but story-wise and how it linked to Illidan, the Nightborne, Guldan and Sargeras.
If you're a Warcraft player, Legion is definitely worth your time and attention. Be sure to pick it up as soon as you can, or hop on over to Nexus!
It's only later that I realised why I love anime and games. It's just how many ways one can express an idea.
