Scrapped Content

Post by Arrow » Sat Oct 17, 2015 5:55 am

This guy has a bunch of videos on content that was scrapped. WoD was like a box of new Jordan's, but when you open the box, there were no Jordan's inside.

They scrapped:

Over a DOZEN garrison layouts through different zones that were BETTER than the current garrison. Many of these were the size of small cities. Some even had waterfalls.

The horde garrison layouts they didn't use CRUSH the current layout, (see layout centered around giant magma pool).

A unique warlock island that's been sitting in the game files since mop, this place looks legit.

Numerous battlegrounds

Early Tannan is fel corruption free and doesn't look like a copy/paste every 5 yds. Meaning this entire zone was supposed to have completely different lore behind it.

Karobar actually had an interior, which somewhat resembled black temple. For live, they scrapped the entire inside and just closed the doors. Black temple was the highlight of outlands, everyone wanted to see it in its original form. Nah, you guys will like storm field.

Gorgrond had train tracks that ran the span of the entire zone.

The way we entered Draenor was completely different, so again, they're just writing this lore as they go.

Yep, pretty much shows how much of a rush they were in to get WoD out and why it has felt pretty mediocre overall despite the huge potential. It could've been a lot better for this expansion, but it just fell flat. Hopefully they learn from this and make Legion a lot better out of the gate.

That warlock Island is what so many people think/hope will be the class hall for us
