Video: Battle for Azeroth interview with Ion Hazzikostas and Ely Cannon

Battle for Azeroth has taken Horde players on quite an emotional journey. Our Warchief appears to be following her own secret plan, leaving players in the dark as to her motivations, thinking and eventual goals are. Rise of Azshara is approaching, and the story will move on a bit when Azshara and the Old Gods make their play.

I got to sit down with game director Ion Hazzikostas and senior level designer Ely Cannon to talk about building a zone, class utility, why gearing through dungeons is currently better than gearing in raids, the Azerite armour system and more. Basically, I went in with so many questions and spoke until I was told it is time to leave. Having such a rare chance, the questions went everywhere, from building zones for flying to how the Lich King feels about Sylvanas right now, without skipping a beat.

But let me not give away any of the juicy bits. Watch for yourself. Just make sure to watch Safe Haven beforehand as it does get referenced in the interview. We hope you have enjoyed all the information and interviews from the WoW Summit.
If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
