Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the
World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.
Yesterday was "load up music you listened to in 2007 on Spotify" day. Here's a relic from my not-so-distant past.
I've always felt the biggest disappointment of Cata (which I think many would agree was not Blizzards biggest expansion success) was the large reuse of already existing assets in the game when it came to locations and bosses/skins/models. (especially boss models). It really came across to me as if they didn't have the time or money to put into creating new assets for the game.
Pandaria I've largely enjoyed being that it's a whole new world and culture to see and discover along with many unique creatures and models and architecture.
Do you worry they are in danger of repeating this with WoD? Especially considering we are going to what is basically Outland once again, with an obviously completely similar map and set of locations along with the fact that I have even read of them redoing UBRS/Possibly LBRS? Do you believe we about to be delivered "Cata 2" in these regards? Its got me a little worried!
Good question. I wouldn't worry, though. A lot of the creatures we saw in TBC straight-up didn't exist on Draenor prior to the calamity. There were no naga, no demons, no lost ones, no broken, the arakkoa looked different, etc. We'll be seeing a lot of orcs and draenei, for sure, but also lots of new or remodeled faces.
