Aug 10th 2009 3:16PM And just for further clarification, Pandaria could easily be the Goblin starting area:
- Rogue faction of merchant Goblins stumble upon Pandaria, establish trade agreements with Pandaren
- Pandaren come under attack by (as of now) unknown forces, Goblins and Horde come to their aid
- Goblins set sail to Hiji to battle more of (as of yet) unknown forces.
I don't know about the Worgen yet, but adding them in as the new Alliance faction totally makes sense. Those who are freaking out don't pay attention to the lore of WarCraft outside of WoW.
Aug 10th 2009 3:11PM From the "gameplan":
Pandaria - 1 to 10
Hiji - 10 to 20
Wolfenhold - 1 to 10
Xorothian Plains - 10 to 20
Just sayin'. :)
And even though those four zones are listed among the "Plane Set" (Emerald Dream/Elemental Plateau), it confirms even more that Blizzard is going to combine the "Maelstrom Set" and the "Plane/Dream Set" into one expansion -- with the Legion Set to be the last expansion, just in time for the next gen MMO to come out.
Aug 6th 2009 11:08AM Mark of the War Prisoner in Heroic Violet Hold. That thing never ever ever ever ever dropped for me. Neither did the spell power/hit trinkets in Naxx. I finally got the Mark, but I'm still running around in Ulduar quality gear with item level 200 trinkets on me.

And the idiots who like to hold them to point and shoot while they go off.
Jul 1st 2009 8:56PM World of WarCraft: Before the Cataclysm
Jun 29th 2009 12:04AM Personally, I'm under the impression that there won't be anymore heroic classes until the last expansion, where players can "upgrade" their classes into Heroic Classes in order to be able to do battle with Sargeras. (Mage -> Arch Mage, Paladin -> Crusader, Priest -> Prophet, etc. etc.)
Jun 5th 2009 2:21PM I think everyone's missing the point. If you ever wondered what WoW looked like through the eyes of someone with ADHD -- this is it! Filled with such ignorant bliss, happy happy fun time boing boing boing!
May 19th 2009 3:19PM A nice compensation for those of us who were early adopters of the Battle.net merge would be increased odds of getting into the SC2 or Diablo 3 beta. I completely agree with a post above... all this hassle, and we probably won't even get into the beta.
It's not really a game-breaking issue, but it surely is pretty frustrating.
May 15th 2009 1:44PM LOL, all this time spent bellyaching about the use of vehicles in raids... nothing is ever good enough, is it?
I personally love the use of vehicles in certain raid encounters. Sure, you could see it as "cheapening" the abilities used to destroy said encounter, but you're ignoring the fun factor involved. I've been with my guild since Karazhan, and we've been through everything together through half of Sunwell and now Ulduar. At first, manning up in vehicles for Flame Leviathan was a bit chaotic, but soon people were commenting "... wow, this is fun!"
It's not a slap in the face at all. It's a break from your class to participate in something fun and different. And it's only *one encounter* in Ulduar. Is that so bad?
