No, it was the opposite. The new plague liquefied the corpses of its victims to keep them from being raised by the Scourge. It's been stated in the past that one of the weaknesses of the Forsaken was their lack of necromancers to raise reinforcements, limiting them to liberated Scourge, but they've never shown an active plan to fix that problem before now.

Jun 13th 2010 11:47PM The elements are the elements. Fire consumes and destroys everything around it to become bigger and bigger, so that's how Ragnaros acts. Water acquiesces to its surroundings and nurtures life, but is powerful and can crush anything that tries to hold it back, so that's how Neptulon acts. Storms come and go somewhat randomly and incite chaos wherever they are, so that's how Al'Akir acts.
Therazane, being the earth, is very peaceful and nurturing, and only powerful in her unyielding solidarity. She's always been an ally to mortals.
May 9th 2010 9:51AM @Thepoe: Actually, Thrall is an active feminist. If you're a male character, the female Orc quest giver at Crossroads will say to you "I see that look in your eyes, do not think I will tolerate any insolence. Thrall himself has declared the Horde's females to be on equal footing with you men. Disrespect me in the slightest, and you will know true pain."
Also the Tauren have one female tribal leader already, and Hamuul Runetotem seems to be grooming his daughter to take his place. So unless Trolls are jerks to their women, the Horde is a very female-friendly place.
Apr 30th 2010 8:39PM I think people greatly overestimate how much of a pacifist Thrall is. With Thrall and nobody but Thrall leading the Horde, the Orcs lead the genocide of the Quillboars simply to take their land, aided the genocide of the Centaurs because they're a bunch of jerks, and invaded sacred Night Elf forest because the Horde needed wood. At one point in Warcraft 3 Thrall complains with his men that they haven't had anything more interesting to fight than Quillboars. After the Wrathgate event, Sylvanas was on her knees convincing Thrall that it wasn't her fault, and then he personally led the wholesale slaughter of those responsible.
If the Alliance were to commit such a direct act of war as attacking a Horde fleet barely off the coast of Durotar, Thrall wouldn't be off to talk peace. Combined with the fact that the cataclysm has made resources more limited, Thrall would be all for war with whoever threatens his people or their allies. He might even put Garrosh in charge simply because he's a more militaristic leader and that job would play to his strengths.
Apr 24th 2010 1:14PM That would only work if it returned more mana than you spent on the spell. So long as it's just a partial refund of mana spent, you'll still be wasting time and mana on a spell that does nothing.
Apr 15th 2010 1:47PM Blizzard sells/gives away vanity items outside of the game. They always have and they always will. They've given away pets, mounts, and even unique items for going to Blizzcon, getting rare TCG cards, getting an authenticator, and more. If this surprises you, then you've had your head buried in the sand for a few years.
Apr 15th 2010 1:38PM The store is for selling vanity items. They've always said it was for vanity items. They're the same kind of items that have been TCG, Blizzcon, and other rewards for a while now.
If there's any slippery slope here, it's that they'll start adding unique flavor items instead of just pet and mount skins, like they do with the TCG. But Blizzard will never, ever sell anything that affects competitive gameplay. Period.
