I would love to play a new machine, my WoW machine was pretty basic, the GPU could only run 30 FPS so the graphic intensive fights were not great.
WoW has subtlety updated their graphics with each expansion pack. The game still has its distinct visual style, but there is a lot more detail within it. So it's a bit more taxing on PCs. Blizzard has always had a pretty good track record with their games running on older systems(compared to other developers), but a PC that struggled at times years ago would definitely struggle today even more.
Legion is probably the best expansion they've ever done. From a lore/narrative perspective WoTLK will always be my personal fav because the Lich King is just such an iconic villain. Far more cooler to me than Gul'dan and the Burning Legion. But with Legion they added artifact weapons which just about everyone loves from my experience. They added a lot of Diablo 3 mechanics into WoW as well. Such as Diablo 3 Adventure mode is now WoW's World Quest system. Diablo 3's Rift levels is WoW's Mythic+ Dungeon System. They've added a slew of Legendary items that drop randomly from various sources. But they limit you on how many legendaries you can equip.
The "end-game" zone called Suramar is one of the best things they've ever done in WoW. And some of their raid fights have been really fun and interesting. Ulduar is still probably my favorite raid they've ever done though.
