make the intro quest magically pop up in your quest log, and allow you to begin playing the expansion immediately without the need to log out and back in.


Do you have to be in Stormwind/Org for the quest to pop up? I was planning on logging out at the Firelands dailies hub.

How will I know for sure when I can start handing in my quests?

Yay...still at god forsaken hours in the morning. Seriously, just disregard 2/3's of your American playerbase. I'd heard it was going to be Midnight launch, and was excited about it. But alas, no - it'll be the next day now.

Midnight EST makes it reasonable for east coast, makes for a bit of an early morning for Euro but doable, and makes it hella convenient for your local westcoast fanbase(whom it seems is all that matters here) for a 9pm launch.

So we're not looking at a repeat of the Diablo 3 launch where error messages popped up for hours on end, right?

Because that would suck.

I mean, look at how many people didn't like D3. I bet that was the reason.

Great, so people will go stand in line for over an hour, rush home, and wait 3 hours before they can even play the game.

At least be consistent to the people in the Eastern time-zone and launch it at 9:00 PM PDT / 12:00 AM EDT.

Luckily I bought the digital upgrade and live in the Central time-zone so I only have to wait until 2:00 AM. Rethinking my decision to stay up and play at all because they are taking away basically 3 hours from the previous launches.

Blizzards West-Coast favoritism knows no bounds. Maybe someday they will wise up and realize that its a minority of their player base. But I doubt it. They will continue to hold all conventions and release times for them exclusively. &%* the East, right Blizz?
What if your quest log is full of dailies to turn in? Would we still get the quest?

Will the xp gaining turn on immediately when this quest is supposed to pop up?

Thanks!

Its almost as if their company is stationed on the west coast or something....
I don't know why people are even complaining about 3 am est launch time, it's been like that for every expansion, or blizzard release haha. Gives me more time to sleep ;)

I don't see it that way.

Like it or not Blizzard are a global company. There isn't anytime they could choose that would be fair to everyone in the US Realms player base. No matter what time they choose there's still going to be a part of the world where it's dinner time. Or the middle of the night when everyone's sleeping.

So they choose to keep it simple and release it at the first minute of the day on the 25th of September in the California time zone.

Thanks!

I can confirm from the beta that yes, you will have 26/25 quests if you already have 25, and it will be in an angry red font color :P
