This week saw a release date announcement for Curse of Naxxramas, the first adventure pack for Hearthstone. Release dates are fine and all that, but in more relevant WoW news, this week also saw the launch of a brand new beta build that opened up four new levels to obtain, two new PvE zones worth of quests, two model revamps, one PvP island, a mysterious portal, and a whole mess of new places to explore.
Sure, we already have a list of things to expect from Warlords, and a list of features we'll be seeing in the new expansion. But this week, in addition to asking everyone what they are playing this weekend, we decided to ask what one feature they'd like to see added to Warlords. How about you guys -- and what are you playing?
Alex Ziebart (@AlexZiebart) This weekend I'm taking it easy for the most part and spending time outside. When I am playing something, I'll be on the Warlords beta checking out Talador. As for new features? Real player housing is still something I really want after seeing it in action in Wildstar -- the amount of creativity some players pour into their lots is incredible. Though I'd accept a Karabor comeback as an alternative.
Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) Beta beta beta! New build means so much more exploring to do, on top of the usual doing a lot of writing as well, and a family barbeque somewhere in the middle of it all. As far as the bonus question goes -- I cancelled my Wildstar subscription, but I still find myself occasionally craving some time to play with that player housing system the game has. Wildstar really hit the nail on the head as far as handling player housing in an interactive and fun way.
Elizabeth Harper (@Faience) Though I have gotten into the beta, I still really, really want to finish getting my Loremaster achievement before Warlords goes live. So if I make time to play this weekend, that will be what I'm doing!
Matthew Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) Beta, writing for my joint project and my other new project. As for new features in Warlords, honestly, WoW already had more features than I use.
Sarah Pine (@ilaniel) Last push for moving this weekend. All the big furniture has to go. Wish us luck with getting our giant, hardwood-fame futon up three flights of stairs. As for the one feature--well, this is silly, but I hope I can use flight form as a druid. I know there will be no flying; I'm okay with that, but if I could just shift into flight form and glide around on the ground as a purple bird, I'd be really happy. What can I say, I love the flight form model.
