I'm not sure what the current maximum sized bag is in the game, but i might need one for the gnome island.
There is so much junk filling up my bags.

We'll see what that means the next time it comes up.  (I completed it in the original incarnation, but it took dozens of tries.  I finally figured out that you had some air control via rotation, and that turning on RP walk made it a bit easier not to overshoot the next jelly.)

I just cheated and glided to it after bouncing off the top jellyfish. Being a Demon Hunter has been an absolute blessing in that zone.

Being able to get the heroic warfront quest was a bug.  From recent hotfix notes:
Quote
Players can no longer receive the Heroic Battle for Stromgarde quest prior to its launch at the start of Season 3.
So it should be available on July 9 along with the normal/heroic raid and the Mechagon dungeon.
Also in those hotfix notes, for anyone who tried the jellyfish jumping world quest:
Quote
Queen Azshara is amused by adventurers' efforts facing her prized jellyfish during "Jumping Jellies" and has graciously cast a taming ward, making them easier to traverse.
We'll see what that means the next time it comes up.  (I completed it in the original incarnation, but it took dozens of tries.  I finally figured out that you had some air control via rotation, and that turning on RP walk made it a bit easier not to overshoot the next jelly.)

In the launcher, Blizzard is advertising 50% off all digital deluxe bundles. That includes things like the pet/mount combos they sell from time to time as well as expansion-specific packs.

It appears that heroic warfronts are not actually in game yet. You can get the quest from the NPC but there doesn't seem to be any way to queue for it. We tried individually and with a group of 10 guildmates and no love. We tested having a person from within the group as leader and a person in the group but not the guild as leader - neither had any effect. We didn't see any clear statements in patch notes or blue posts as of last night. Slightly disappointing, though not surprising since it should give the same higher-level gear as the new raid.

From what I heard it was removed as the warfront was not giving credit for the quest. When they fix it, it should return.

Steam's summer sale has started. You know the drill.

Servers are up.  (Maintenance was scheduled to go until 6pm eastern but they're early this time.)  Don't forget to update your UI mods.

Fair. I was thinking primarily on abilities/skills/traits as opposed to items, since gear is constantly replaced throughout the course of an expansion anyway, but you're right that it does make an appreciable difference in early leveling power and I don't think that an immediate dropoff would be a bad thing. That's how it was for BC since they drastically changed itemization budgets with stamina and other things, and it felt fine to me all the way back then. It would sometimes be tough if you had a super important/crucial set bonus, but that's not a problem at least in this expansion.

 I do disagree with the traits/active abilities being mostly folded in, but I think that depends on the class. While many of those didn't change Time To Kill, they did impact survivability/utility/play for the classes I was playing at the time. It wasn't an insignificant interruption to rotation/play for my two classes. Something like the Warlord of Draenor perks getting wiped out wasn't really that noticeable, though.

Something like changing powers/skills/items works great in a circular gameplay loop like Diablo's seasons, but yeah, it's a hard sell in a game that has been consistently built as a linear progression like WoW.

Still 410 until the raid opens two weeks later.
