Dec 19th 2011 7:32PM Oooh. Now, would I use it for my gnome tank, or my rogue working on the legendaries?
Nov 6th 2011 11:49AM Prior to Blizzcon, my wildest hope for the expansion was that it would introduce a new faction -- the Pandaren Empire, opposing both the Alliance and the Horde. The Pandaren would be a central race, but it would also include other Asian-themed races -- perhaps ogres themed similarly to Ogri'la, or nomadic Mongolian centaurs. I'd even considered Ethereals as a meddling but possibly allied power, opening Pandaria up to outside influence like Perry's 'black ships' did for Japan.
Adding four to six new races and an entire faction's worth of quests at all levels, plus revamping battlegrounds significantly, would be a monumental task, and I admitted it wasn't likely... but darned if it wouldn't have been cool.
Sep 12th 2011 2:49AM My main's a female gnome warrior -- a retired flight captain of the Gnomeregan Air Defense Force. (Someone's got to be flying all those gyrocopters, after all.) She's pleasant, friendly, hard to offend, eager to meet new people and learn new things... and also hard-drinking, hard-fighting, and extremely driven, with a will of steel, a slightly crude sense of humor, and a marked intolerance to people threatening her friends or deriding gnomes. She's got scars and war stories, she jokes around with her old military buddies at Fizzcrank's Airstrip in Borean Tundra, and she's not going to be intimidated by someone just because she's staring him in the kneecap.
Aug 31st 2011 1:48PM Too true. I'm tempted to trawl through the game and make a list of characters who are obviously, blatantly heterosexual (or in heterosexual relationships) just to highlight the point for everyone who says there's 'no sexuality in the game.'
Just off the top of my head -- Thrall and Aggra, Alexstrasza and her consort, Varian and his late wife, Mankrik and his wife, Moira Bronzebeard and Dagran Thaurissan, Tyrande and Malfurion... I'm sure I could find dozens more if I searched quest texts and NPC actions. If we count people who have kids (not a sure sign of heterosexuality, but it's a common implication), we get even more, like the late Morgan Ladimore (Mor'ladim of Duskwood) or Edwin van Cleef, both of whom have daughters.
Dec 29th 2010 12:51AM Oooh, shiny.
