what comes after wotlk classic to be determined by the community

During an interview between Asmongold and Ion Hazzikostas the question came up around what could come next after WotLK Classic finishes out it’s content phases and reaches the end of the expansion.

Ion was up front that Blizzard is really looking to the community to provide helpful recommendations around what they would like to see and that everything is on the table. We’ve added a transcript below of the relevant part of the interview.

Asmondgold:
Next thing I was wondering about is the uh, what do you think is going to happen now Wrath of the Lich King Classic is coming out. Obvious Wrath of the Lich King is going to run its course, then what?

Ion:
Um, yes at this point I’d love to hear from you, from the community as a whole, what you want to come next. We have a playerbase that really has made Classic their home and the people who have carried their characters forward from Classic into Burning Crusade and likely into Wrath beyond that. And when that comes to an end, when you defeat the Lich King, or sorry when you actually kill Halion the ultimate end boss in Wrath of the Lich King.

Do you want to start over, do you want to try a different version of that, do you want to carry that character forward into a new adventure. I know Cataclysm, for many people was like “ah that’s the beginning of the end and I’m out”.

Asmondgold:
It was a world revamp yeah.

Ion:
I’d ask like, an interesting question is maybe: what is it about Cataclysm you don’t like. Was it the heroic dungeons, was Firelands a bad raid, is Twilight Highlands a bad zone? Is that the problem or was it, I don’t know, LFR and dungeon finder from the start and removing group quests from the world or whatever else or compressing the talent trees.

What would it look like if you had Cata content with some changes? Lots of stuff is on the table, we really welcome that discussion now that the fact were doing Wrath is no longer the worlds worst kept secret.

good luck trusting this brain-dead community to figure out their way out of a toilet room

I’d like to see the story branch out on it’s own, keeping the wotlk systems in place. Take a page out of Old School Runescape and make sure the new content is what the community wants and is in line with the reasons people play classic over retail.

I think the talent tree in retail mess things up I like the barber the flying is awesome I like where you do a quest and you finish it on the field another one just pop up like a chain quest you don’t have to return it to an npc all the way in town the talent tree in classic is the best you make your own decisions we play the same class but we have different build you get to play with your talents and make it your own also like the covenant getting op skill is always a good thing
