Oct 8th 2009 6:37PM I hope the second boss gets its own model, and I suspect it will. That BT boss looks very out of place.
Otherwise, looks awesome! Can't wait to run it!
Oct 8th 2009 3:02PM RP realms are much more likely to have famous people. I'm a denizen of Moon Guard, and the only claim to fame I have was roleplaying a penguin as a joke on April fools, which people really liked.
However, many Moon Guard players and forum goers will know the names of "Everbanned", "Ghostangel", "Slain" (OH Slain!), and what's his face from Northshire Templar. This is just a tiny sampling. If you want a real community, come to a RP realm. You don't even have to RP, but the community is there. MG is a massive server, nearly always full, and yet everyone knows eachother. We're on big happy family.
Sep 4th 2009 1:50PM Just like to shed a little light on three pictures and their comments.
Picture 2, if you just let it play about a 1/4 of a second longer, the image will enter what is CLEARLY the frozen stairs up to the frozen throne. So yes, that is Icecrown Citadel.
***LOLORE SPOILERS***Picture 19, where the goblins are fighting the alliance. One of the goblin starting area quests involves finding a Orc's corpse. You also find the Orc's journal. This journal mentions they are taking very special cargo somewhere. It also mentions that the alliance attacked their ship, which is why they were stranded as well on the lost isles, because the alliance wanted that "cargo". It also mentions in one of the last pages, that the cargo is missing from the wreckage on the Isles, and that "Those stupid goblins who got caught up in our fight" were hit, and could be seen further down the coast. In otherwords, we got caught up in their fight.
Later, when you meet the surviving orcs, they offer a temporary friendship so we might help eachother get off the island. They want our help getting this "cargo". We, with the help of the orcs, invade the alliance camp. The alliance were damn well going to retrieving and protecting this cargo, and anyone who got in their of getting it of retrieving it (like our goblin boat) had to go. Don't forget, after the cataclysm, the world has gone to war. Well, we invade, you steal a gnomish plane. You fly it over to their fleet of ships they used to retrieve the cargo, and you fight your way down into the hold. This is where you find the cargo. It is none other then Thrall himself, who, once you free him, had been on a grand tour of azeroth, trying to repair the damage Deathwing had made. The last quest I got to do before I was kicked off the computer at blizzcon, was using thralls magic to turn me into a storm to try and destroy the fleet of ships. The alliance were just obsessed with thrall. They didn't care who they attacked to get him. That is what made the goblins turn against them. They took us down. Now we're going to take THEM down.
Finally, image 37. Now, I can't find the actual source, and I'll get back to you if I do, but I remember reading somewhere official that that image was of Blackrock Mountain... Again, I'll get back to you on that.
Aug 22nd 2009 8:50PM 'Sup folks! Just wanted to give a quick rundown from Blizzcon, mostly about completely random tidbits.
First, the Worgen/Human forms. They are PURELY cosmetic, although, as has been said, you transform into Worgen if you go into combat.
However, you CANNOT currently customize the look of the human form. Your worgens fur/mane/face have NO barring on what the human form looks like. However, I had to access to a Barber, so maybe you can only customize it there?
Second, the goblin skills are as awesome as they sound. BELIEVE ME. Unleashing the Rocket Belt to go flying forward is WAY TO COOL. Especially when a ass ugly bank is following you desperately.
Third, the quests for both of the starting zones are really FANTASTIC. For instance, some of the first Worgen quests require you to throw kegs of black powder on Abomination heads, causing them to explode. A later Worgen quest also has you launching yourself from catapults onto undead pirate ships. So awesome.
Some goblin quests are even MORE fun. You chuck monkeys banana's, which cause them to launch into the air in a fiery trail (They ate bombs or something). Later, you mow down 100 giant evil plants (New models! VERY cool) in about a minute with a weed whacker. So cool. Lastly, a certian well known Orc shaman turns you into a FREAKING STORM, where you use your lighting bolts and tornado powers to destroy a fleet of ships. SO FREAKING AWESOME, although I couldn't finish the quest, as I ran out of time on the demo :(
Finally, to those who say "Thes rases mak nu sens), there are questlines that explane HOW these new alliances come about. And believe me, they make sense. Lots and LOTS of sense. You'll see.
FINAL COOL THING: Third Worgen quest includes *Drumroll* A CUT SCENE!!
Aug 20th 2009 7:03PM (Flex) I have my badge already. Indeed, I got it *gasp* yesterday! *Shows off*
Being friends with people from DC comics got me access to an exhibitors badge. No swag bad though :( I'm hoping I can pick that up inside or something.
Jul 21st 2009 12:33PM It actually looks to me like she was flying above shattrath's big beam of light, at night, dismounted, used rose petals and snagged the screenshot.
Not the most entertaining hypothesis, but the most likely.
Jun 2nd 2008 4:33PM Strange, you say it's gone, but it was still there for me just a second ago and still is...
