New Blood Elf model revealed



Blizzard has just published the new models for the Blood Elves. The models were not originally included with the release of Warlords of Draenor. Blizzard delayed the model to make it as good as possible, and we're finally seeing some of those results. We don't have an exact release date for the new models to appear in-game, however Blizzard notes that the creation process has been streamlined and they hope to have them out soon.

The Queue: Pandaren on Draenor, tank stats, garrisons


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

There's downtime today, and that's interrupting my normal routine of garrison farming. Must get those resources as soon as they're available.

Zemaya asked:

So I'm doing the Exarch/Maarad quests in Shadowmoon, the one where you find the wagon and protect it. There happens to be a female Panda farmer follower with them. My Q : How can that be?

Around Azeroth: Silence knows, can't drown a heart

"I discovered some hidden resources in the lake at my garrison," writes submitter Rann of Earthen Ring (US-A). "As I swam back up, I was struck by how beautiful the night is in Shadowmoon Valley. Enjoy!" I suppose this is the upside to having a garrison that isn't permanently frozen over. You can go diving for resources and stare blankly at the night sky without worrying about hypothermia setting in within five minutes.

Breakfast Topics: What Building do you think Garrisons need?

I was just wondering about what I'd put in my Garrison if I could - I still think the idea of a Tony Start style armory where all your various transmog sets were on display would be cool, but then I really got to thinking about it - maybe an airstrip to allow you to fly between various points in Draenor (or perhaps that could be how we learn flying when it comes in, via the airstrip?) or perhaps a variety of race specific buildings could be added? Something like an elaborate orrery for blood elves, a crystalline tower for draenei, a clockwork robot lab for gnomes, a stump for orcs.

Honestly, I'm dead curious. What would you add if you could add anything?

Tier 17 raid armor preview

Blizzard released a preview of tier 17 armor sets tonight in advance of the grand opening of Highmaul. The paladin set is displayed above and you can see the rest of them over on Battle.net.

If I may be a crotchety old Warcraft veteran for a moment, I'm not particularly digging this armor tier. None of the armor sets feel particularly evocative of their class, instead just a spattering of colors and things tacked onto other things. Aesthetics is one of the most subjective things in the world, though. For as apathetic as I am about them, there's undoubtedly someone else who is thrilled.

Heroes of the Storm reveals new Winter Veil, Altered Fate skins

Heroes of the Storm revealed another new set of character skins today: two Winter Veil skins, a Winter veil mount, and two new "Altered Fate" skins -- that is, skins that flip established lore on its head. The skins are Great-father Winter Rehgar, Winter Veil Jaina, Betrayer Malfurion, and Warden Tyrande. We're all big fans of Jaina Proudmoore here at WoW Insider, so it's likely no surprise that I personally find Winter Veil Jaina to be the best of the lot.

These skins are not yet available for purchase in the in-game shop -- which doesn't matter all that much, given precious few people are currently in the beta. All of these skins, once made available, will remain available indefinitely, however. They'll be there when you get there.

Blood Elf model preview coming Tuesday



Hold on to your elf ears! The Blood Elf model preview will be coming to an internet near you tomorrow, Tuesday, November 24. A tweet from the new @WarcraftDevs (which you should all be following) let us know about the impending release earlier today.

The Blood Elf model is the last model we've been waiting for. It got delayed from WoD's release because of reasons that have never really been fully spelled out. But nonetheless, Blizzard is delivering on their promise to get it out with a patch shortly after release... so stay tuned!

Last Week on Massively: WoW's rebound

WoW
This post originally appeared on Massively from Editor-in-Chief Brianna Royce. At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO story last week, you've come to the right post.

After a shockingly long content drought and disappointing expansion previews, World of Warcraft proved that no one cares about content droughts and disappointing expansion previews by resecuring over 10,000,000 subscriptions, just in time for its 10th anniversary celebration. To compensate for the trainwreck launch of Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard granted the entire playerbase five extra days of gametime.

Read on for a look at the rest of this week's top MMO stories.
