QfortheQ: Will blizz put fel reavers in pandaria? they tried something of the sorts with the storm giants in howling fjord and the whale sharks in vashir, so they clearly want to encourage something like them. The problem is that the whale sharks and storm giants were no where near where a player would go. they did not go anywhere near quest hubs or quest objectives, and didn't even touch the roads. I loved having fel reavers in hellfire because it showed that there was something in the world more powerful than you, and it wasn't confined to a cave waiting for 10 to 40 people to say hello in order to do anything. I didnt level to 70 until 2.3.0 (yes the duskwallow revamp got me back into the game) and dont remember the fel reavers being hard to evade. i died twice to a fel reaver and 20 times to those helboars. I think wow is missing mobs that give you a sense of place. something as simple as putting a flying mob that will kill you if you fly a fel reaver not shoved into a corner or a patrolling horde/alliance army will help give players a sence that there is a possibility of dieing in the world

Fel Pandas: 90-foot tall death machines with crushing, jade-armoured fists; blazing red eyes; deafening siren with the voice of Jack Black...

Well I know they wanted to bring back World Bosses, that'll be fun. I LOVE the idea of running into Enemy Battalions, not just a pack of 3 that won't see you 25 yards away. It reminds me of some of the wider valleys in Icecrown swarming with Scourge big and small, trash and elite. You want that Saronite node? Pull the guy next to it and 5 of his buddies will rush you. WATCH OUT THERE'S A BONE GIANT BEHIND YOU. Those Frostwyrms also had a big aerial aggro range.

I would have minded that aspect of Icecrown a lot less if those undead had dropped loot - and if they'd counted as valid mobs to proc Victory Rush.
