Blizzard comments on the status of guild housing {WoW}

Feb 18th 2010 9:33AM I don't think it'd turn cities into a ghost town anymore than the cities already are (or are not). I think you have a guild house that enters and exits directly into the cities, that would be sufficient in encouraging the flow of traffic in and out of each town. Maybe have a portal in each guild house allowing choice of which city to exit out into...that would be awesome. I think it'd encourage people to go into the cities.

Besides, I'm not a huge fan of hanging around the cities anyway, but plenty of people are...so I don't think that creating a guild house would necessarily discourage people from hanging in the city with their non-same guild friends.

Hope that makes sense.

WoW.com Guest Post: Is Arthas redeemable? {WoW}

Feb 3rd 2010 3:33PM Great story, and certainly wonderful things to think about and I think it all comes down to this...

You're given a finite amount of time in which to make your mark in life and when your time is up, you better be ready for the consequences, or lack there of...

The problem with the question of whether he is "redeemable" is that we aren't comparing his actions to anything greater to determine that. There is no "infinite God" to which we know whether he'd have to answer to...so given that...who defines good and evil? Humanity? That doesn't work. If it is the "Light" well, that's not clearly defined either. We can imply what the "Light" stands for by, maybe, what it does and who wields it, but since it isn't a conscience being (that we know of) that makes it hard to determine what it asks of those who wield it.

So in game, who knows whether he's redeemable. If there is a God to which he must answer to in this game, it's between He/She/It and Arthas. We do know that when Arthas is put down, he'll be going out on one side versus another.

The other thing to consider is that we have a spirit world in some sense...one can only assume that the characters in this world have souls because they seem to occasionally show up (like Uther and Terenas), but who knows.

We're on the side of life and loot, he's on the side of power, pride, the undead and the slaughtering of the living.

I guess that makes sense...well, it does in my head anyway...

Spoilers: Fall of the Lich King cinematic {WoW}

Feb 1st 2010 5:58PM Insane...at least the idea. Here are my thoughts:
1. I think the ending with Arthas seems underwhelming a bit. It seems his end was quick and it needed more length. This is the character behind an entire warcraft game series (warcraft 3 and frozen throne) AND an wow xpack. Some would say the genius behind it is his quick passing, but I suppose I wanted more out of it. Something else from him; regret, an even more fearsome retort at his defeat even going into death. It seems the "father, is it over?" Isn't enough...I like the fact that he sees darkness, for it's an indication where he is headed, clearly not into the "light". Because the animation graphics I can't make out what the characters are thinking, or feeling. His father seems to still treat him like a son, but it's not exceptionally clear, the connection. I can surmise, but a visual story should have clarity.

2. What happens between Tirion and Bolvar seems very disconnected. Tirion seems connected, but Bolvar does not...and maybe he shouldn't be, but it still seems a bit clunky.

3. I LOVE what happens...I love where this goes the passing of a torch, out of self-sacrifice, but because of necessity. It also leaves this sense of eternity. Like, why must there always be a Lich King? (yes, I saw the reason) Is there no escape from that possibility? Will the scourge be ever-present and will the people's of Azeroth and Kalimdor never be safe from them? Will Bolvar's reign as the Lich King be something he'll be able to control and be a safe-guard for those people forever? He says he will be the "jailer of the damned", but is HE really the sole owner of that control? Reminds me a lot of Icewind Dale, where that shaman sacrifices himself to seal a portal and there he remains encased in the portal like Han Solo in carbonite.

4. Although Arthas' ending seemed a bit underwhelming, the idea was wonderful. He lies broken and shattered in the middle of a room alone, with noone (but his spirit father, who was a good King), as he drifts into death and, for him, an afterlife in darkness (or no afterlife at all...whichever). Then it seems Tirion enters...

I hope his death scene is more epic than this cinematic. It has an affect of global proportion I'd suspect.
