Nov 28th 2010 2:24PM Okay, so I have a question you roleplaying folks might be able to help me with. Are we, as characters, aware that Deathwing is the cause of all the devastation we've been experiencing? Do we know he's back? Do the leaders of the Horde and the Alliance know? Does anyone know? Or do we only know know that the elements are in upheaval, and there's been a terrible natural disaster, but we don't know what's caused it yet?
I ask because in the new questlines I've encountered so far, nobody ever mentions Deathwing. I've been playing my new dwarf mage, and while there in plenty of references to the Cataclysm and the destruction, there hasn't been one bit of "OMG, Deathwing's back, what do we do?" In fact, a gnome in Loch Modan cites the Twilight's Hammer as the cause of the Cataclysm, which seems to imply that we do not yet know that Deathwing is pulling the strings of the Twilight's Hammer. One would think that the leadership of Stormwind would be aware of Deathwing's return, since he razed the city and perched on top of the front gate, and it seems reasonable to assume they would inform others. But there's no quests in SW to do with Deathwing, and no mention of him there, either. Does anyone have any insight?
Nov 27th 2010 11:35PM I actually did roll a female dwarf mage. (Not because you told me to though, I was gonna do it anyway.) And I'm an actual, real life woman. Someone's gotta balance out all the female night elf mages that are running around now.
'Course I already have a human mage...but you can never have too many.
Nov 24th 2010 5:17PM I have what may be a stupid question, but it's really been bothering me. Why aren't there any quests in Stormwind along the lines of "OMG, Deathwing just attacked, what do we do?" I logged in expecting chaos and panic, and instead everyone's acting like nothing ever happened. Are those quests coming with the actual Cataclysm release, or has it been months (or years) since the Shattering took place? Feeling a bit let down from the lack of lore quests I've encountered so far.
Sep 18th 2007 3:31PM When I play games, I notice I tend to go with DPS. I think it's just my playstyle. When I play Magic: The Gathering, my favorite deck is a white/green beatdown deck, and when I play WoW, my main is a mage. I have a paladin as well, but she's specced Ret as opposed to Holy or Prot. It's just more fun for me to do DPS, and there is less responsibility.
