Developer Q&A - RE: Prestige Rewards Post Legion

There was a live Developer Q&A today, and I'm just getting a chance to sit down and watch. No pet battle questions were directly answered, but we did get a bit of clarification on what will happen to the PVP Prestige pets post-Legion.

Here's a clip of when Game Director Ion Hazzikostas addresses Prestige. Keep in mind that this does NOT guarantee ANYTHING. If you watch earlier (couldn't clip the entire Prestige answer), he notes that they're still unsure but re-evaluating what to do with Prestige, Honor, and the whole thing in BfA. It does lean more toward making current Prestige rewards still available, even after this expansion is over. Perhaps in a different manner than how we obtain the rewards now, but still available.

"Regardless, we want to make sure the Prestige rewards that are currently available will still be available in whatever form we have in the future. We'll have more information to come basically."

This is better news than no news at all, IMO. I'm glad to hear that their current plan is to not simply retire the current rewards come BfA.

Even with this news, I still plan on finishing up my grind to Prestige 7 this month. I'm so close, I don't plan on quitting now. Today's developer response is great for others who may want to take it much more slowly though! If you're "behind" on the Prestige grind, that's ok! There's time. At least for now. Couldn't hurt to get started a little bit by little bit sooner instead of later though. ;)
