Ugh. Stories about bugs and creepy-crawlies tend to make me paranoid. Thanks, Alex. Let's wash all that ick out of our brains with a track from Brave -- which everyone should go see if you haven't yet, because it was really good.
Any idea if DS RF gear will be sold or aveilable other wise in MoP? This is for transmog reasons.
That is actually a really good question. Right now, we know that as of level 86, you won't be able to queue for Dragon Soul via the raid finder anymore. There hasn't been any news to suggest that it would be available on a vendor after Cataclysm is out. Since the raid finder gear is a different color, it stands to reason if you want a set out of there, you'd best get it now before Cataclysm ends.
I am a little disappointed in the decision to make PVP possible on someone taking part in a pet battle. Most of my characters are on a PVP realm, but would I be able to make a character on a PVE realm and do per battles there and have those pets available on my PVP realm too? I'm confused whether pets are truly account wide or just realm wide like heirlooms are.
PvP is a natural part of being on a PvP realm -- just because you're challenging a fluffy little critter to honorable combat doesn't mean you should be somehow invulnerable to it. Otherwise, you'd have people on PvP realms using pet battles to get out of sticky situations, and that wouldn't be particularly fair. However, you're in luck because you're right.
Pets are Battle.net account-wide, so you can safely roll an alt on a quiet PvE realm and go capture fluffballs to your heart's content, and your main will have all the collected critters in their pet list, too. As an added bonus, any teams that you level will be available to your main, with all the levels they have gained.
Question for the Queue: I recently read some separate articles about the naaru and the sha and i didn't really understand something. The articles seem to say that there is a connection between them. What connection? It is a very confusing matter for me.
You were likely reading at least one of mine. I did a write-up on the oddities of the Sha and the Light some time ago. It's a theory that a lot of people are playing with, because in the draenic language, the word Sha translates to light. Shattrah is the City of Light, the Sha'tar are Born of Light. It's a weird coincidence -- weird enough that a lot of people were wondering about it -- but as far as we know, it's just a coincidence and nothing more.
I don't know about other people, but when I write theories on Know Your Lore, they're designated as Tinfoil Hat Editions and include a disclaimer. They are definitely not official lore, merely the ramblings of a gal who perhaps looks a little too closely at the threads of lore.
mightbechris points out:
I still don't get why I can't use my Argent Grunting for battles. I can summon him into the middle of an elemental plane of fire and then strap him onto the top of a pony and make him take trash to a vendor ALONE but I can't tell him to pick up a stick and swat snakes and rats...yeah, that makes a ton of sense.
I don't want my Gruntling to swat snakes and rats. I want him to get on his pony and joust with them because it would in some small way make up for the hours upon hours I spent on horseback in that dumb tournament hitting dumb champions with dumb sticks for dumb Tirion.
Seriously though, I suspect it's because watching a little kid go through a death animation if it gets killed is just a little too much for World of Warcraft. Personally, I think it'd be neat if they just threw up a white flag on a stick if they got defeated, instead of keeling over -- you know, pull an "I surrender!" and run away.
When I summoned the Guild Page for the first time I nearly jumped. How in Earth did a man get relegated to a planar existence, being summoned from the void only when you want to sell your greys?
Look, after Ulduar, Algalon had to do something with all that free time on his celestial hands.
Regarding (most) mounts and minis going account-wide in 5.0: I have two accounts, one of which is obviously my main account and has 120+ mounts on it. If I transferred a character from that account, once account-wide mounts are live, to my second account, would all those mounts now be on the second account, for both existing characters and any alts I make after?
If both WoW licenses are under the same Battle.net account, as in you log in with the same email address for both accounts, all of your mounts will be accessible on all of your characters -- minus the exceptions to the account-wide rule that Blizzard has pointed out, of course.
Question for the Queue: Do you think that Mists of Pandaria is more of a causal expansion compare to the others?
No. I think there is more to do at max level than has ever been available before. And if you're the hardcore type who has to finish every last thing out there, well, you're going to be good and amused for a very, very long time.
@MontoyaDaniel from Twitter asked:
I heard that Pandaren will officially all have golden eyes as a design choice. Will this carry over to the playable ones?
I'm not really sure where you heard that information, but I can assure you that there are a variety of eye colors when creating a pandaren on beta. These eye colors are tied to the facial markings you choose for your character on both male and female pandaren, however. But as far as the gold-eyed theory, well, this is the first I've heard of it!
@temprow from Twitter asked:
q4q what's up with thrall in mop.
Haven't seen him. I assume he's taking the orcish equivalent of Lamaze classes with Aggra. It's not so much about the breathing exercises as it is the screaming and crushing the skulls of your enemies.
