Not to create any pressure, but also remember that the WoD Digital extras bundle (Dread Raven pet and mount, and a few other goodies for Blizzard games) is supposed to be removed from sale when the PRE-Legion patch hits. We don't know a date for that, but it could be quite a few weeks earlier. I forget the timing of previous expansions but I'm guessing around a month earlier?

Quintessence also pointed out on Twitter that the guild reward Dreadwatch Hatchling minipet is supposed to be removed with Legion too. I never quite understood why they did that. If a guild earned it, they should keep it on their vendors. It's not a game-breaking item. :P

Yikes, I'll have to make it a point to get that then.
Thank you for the reminder :)

Guh, I was hoping for July. T_T This is going to be an even longer content drought than SoO. Oh well, I'm still ridiculously excited about this expansion!

I know, right?! :D

Also, I might be in the small group, but I felt Aug 30th is way earlier than I expected. I thought for sure Sept 21 was looking more and more like the original date. I'm glad to see that really, we're not 'too' far off from a pre-patch/world event.

But I'm also sad that I wasn't that wrong either. Such a long drought of HFC.

Yeah, August is earlier than I expected too. I thought I had read that it wasn't coming out until September.

How did you think it was November when Blizz clearly had "September 21st or earlier" printed all over it?

I've been very sick with strep throat (thought it was just a flu) and for some reason had Nov in the brain.

No need to be rude. Yeesh.

Yeah I didn't remember an upper date limit mentioned either, though I'm sure there was one. I had somewhere around Oct in my head.

Another thing to remember, which I just tweeted, is that it's likely the Challenger's War Yeti will also become unobtainable in the pre-Legion patch. At least if it's anything like the MoP equivalents. The yeti comes from completing the silver challenge mode dungeon achievements.

You, like myself, have a way of writing things that tend to come off as very sarcastic and like you're being rude. Your question to her kind of looked as if it could be condescending. That's the problem with text, tone is very hard to tell. :P I have to be careful what I type because I'm a dry, sarcastic person irl.

To be fair, it's not like Blizzard has a good track record with keeping their dates. How many times now have they said they want to make expansions a "yearly" thing, but we're all still stuck here with 14 months of Hellfire Citadel right after we had 14 months for Seige of Orgrimmar. XD

I knew they had said Sept 21st since they first stated it, I just didn't expect them to actually keep it (personally). So I'm pleasantly surprised :)

And english is not my first language either.
This is not the only forum I visit regularly.
And yes, I've noticed two thing lately:
  • the tone seems to get more agressive
  • people tend to be offended more easily
This ends up with a lot of trouble where no trouble was intended.
