Legion Features Overview
Legion Features – What to Expect from Legion
World of Warcraft: Legion features an enormous amount of new content and has been widely received as the best Expansion since Wrath of the Litch King. Currently Legion has enjoyed strong Metacritic reviews, demonstrating that World of Warcraft remains incredibly resilient despite the disappointing reception of the previous Warlords of Draenor expansion.
In addition to the rich content currently available at launch, Blizzard already has promising new content in development for the next major content patch 7.1: Return to Karazhan.
Karazhan was originally a ten player raid from the Burning Crusade expansion. In Legion Kharazhan has been overhauled to become a challenging Mythic Dungeon, a form of mini raid that provides raid level difficulty to smaller five player groups.
Major System Updates
World of Warcraft: Legion has completely overhauled character progression. Central to these changes is the new Artifact Weapon System which allows for character to empower their Artifact Weapon, providing additional abilities and play style options for characters.
