The World Of Warcraft [official site] blog is talking about the upcoming Legion pre-patch. As a non-player the update info tends not to grab me particularly (unless it’s about Illidan and looks like a pro wrestling intro) but I do like the talk of the pre-expension patch where the new content starts to seep into the world and set the scene for the expansion.
It’s a transition period that I don’t really get with the games I play. Those are more about dumping in a bunch of changes via a patch and players needing to unpick them. They’re not story-based or world-altering.
