It would be cool to see him walk over some inn and play his song once every night 🙂

@greenegg so what if to play music he has to have an active sub? pun intended. Those interesting should maybe watch the last steam with Ion, pretty sure the joke about making sure to post to the fans first is covered, even if I did have to send the update to HR first. The servers really were not ready in legion, I played through the invasions and the vision blizzard had back before cata was not possible before battle. It is players like jay that are going to understand what blizzard had to wait eight years to implement the final pieces of. The joke is the class has been copyrighted since 2010 because the leadership at blizzard did not trust us that much so they copy righted the design document that day. It was supposed to be in cata. There are likely going to be a lot of players frustrated at higher levels when people like jay who took the time to learn to play an actual instrument do some really interesting things but it should be fun if you like wow. It is really in ion’s hands at this point.

Before anything says anything negitive. I am a musican and singer and better known for singing other’s people stuff but this is what Ion is working with.
One thing share it with the fans first no reddit until it goes live.
