Update #1:

* You can start working on the flying achievement for Legion right at the start of the expansion

* Relics to increase artifact weapon power won't convert between specs, so you'll have to get both if you're multispec (other improvements to the artifact weapon will have catch-up mechanics, which we knew)

* Professions are a focus this expansion, with the largest team ever assigned to them, and will include a questline for each profession, refreshed systems, a new UI, new functionality, and expertise in individual recipes

* You get a 12th character slot on each realm

 

The Blizzard Webpage that breaks down all the new features is also live, at:

Check it out if you want more details, presumably kept up to date.

That's all for now!

 

So, tell us, what do you think of this new expansion news? Especially considering that World of Warcraft is currently at its lowest subscriber count since 2006. Will this new expansion provide a boost for a few months, or will it be more of a long term solution? Or perhaps you feel it will not help at all?

Are you excited? Will you be returning to WoW for it? Share your Thoughts below!
