As it goes with almost any MMORPG, World of Warcraft is a very grindy game. In it, you’ll have to pump your character to the maximum available level before you can get to the end-game content which all players are so used to. And the problem is – the process of going through all the expansions just to get yourself one new class to be playable in raids is very time consuming. Even if you have a vanilla WoW leveling guide at your disposal, you still have to do all the boring quests or clear those repetitive dungeons over and over again. This pattern affects almost every activity in this online world. At the end of your day, you need to really dedicate your time to playing the game or you will get nowhere.
We have no idea what implications this might have and whether or not it even indicates anything, since Patch 8.2 is still in testing and a Tuesday launch is more than unlikely due to Essence tuning and Azshara's Eternal Palace, which is supposedly coming shortly after launch. Blizzard said they wouldn't be delaying the new raid like they did with Battle of Dazar'alor.
