Jul 24th 2009 7:34PM Why do you keep using the Undead as the Horde model? It's like looking at a Jigsaw puzzle with a bunch of pieces missing
Jul 17th 2009 10:06AM I figure that around the time they introduce a "Far-East" Theme in an expansion(Yes, Possibly Pandaren) They will also add a glyph-like profession Along the lines of acupuncture. Where glyphs are Class-Specific advantages, acupuncture would focus on improving your chi-points, which have more to do with your race than anything else. There's a good chance that in the interest of Simplifying balancing they would make all Point focuses count for all races. But I would like it if certain minor ones could be attached to specific races.
Give Tauren back their plainsrunning, Let gnomes be able to make small explosions appear around them, perhaps we could get a "Super-jump" Pressure-point for NE's or BE's.
The way I would see it work is that as we level more points would open up, much like Glyphs. Only certain skills only work in certain slots, much like in Jewelcrafting. Pressure points for escaping snares could only go on the legs, breaking the daze of a stun would be in the head, The strength to carry an extra bag would be a torso slot.
I've been racking my brain and that's the only profession I can think of. It may not be Acupuncture per-say, but definitely something that accomplishes what I described.
Actually, since we're Probably going to the Maelstrom, I can see us taking up the fine Navy tradition of covering ourselves in tattoos - Tattoos that give us special power that is(quite a demand for inscription ink). And what with the Hot Humid weather down there our winter Armor will be incredibly cumbersome. Perhaps Level-90 armor will be Sleeveless? That way we can show off our sick tats as we thoroughly throunce Azshara, neptulon and whatever old-gods turn their maws our way.
Personally, My Shaman is going to be rocking a SWEET Tat of Bowser on his gun. . . riding a surfboard, looking out over his sunglasses, while playing a double neck guitar with notes coming out of it everwhere, In front of a Pot Leaf, in front of a cross.
Happy Birthday Rick
Jul 3rd 2009 7:18PM I think the Argent crusade made it clear with the Black Knight questline that they don't encourage people to Actually kill eachother in the tournament. We can't even kill other riders. With the number of healers and Rezzers in the area Death isn't a major concern for players.
It would also explain why we get a limited number of runs at this raid per week. Unlike other instances, the fact that Death is just a speedbump for adventurers is fully acknowledged.
Then again, I haven't been reading the spoilers so Maybe there's something I don't know
Jul 3rd 2009 2:54PM The Argent Crusade is all about preserving life. They don't want to send a bunch of Blue-wearing scrubs after the big bad when all they will do is die/get in the way. It a basic soldiering concept, You'd rather have a well trained soldier in the foxhole next to you then a couple dozen who couldn't get through Basic Training
Jun 20th 2009 9:05AM If I remember correctly There was supposed to be one more after Argent Stadium. I may be wrong though. And what is to limit them releasing just one instance per patch? They said they have at least one more 5 man to release, That could be Malakk.
He needs to Die. We've only gone in the Gundrak Basement. If Sunken Temple and Blackrock Spire taught me anything, it's that the bigger baddies are always on the upper floors
Jun 20th 2009 8:56AM Look at all the Mount changes though. It's getting easier and easier to navigate through the old world. Also, It's been hinted various times that Gil'neas and Kul'Tiras are going to be released in a future patch. I think It was Zharym who said something like "I wonder just what awaits you behind the Greymane Wall".
Bliz wants to make older content easier to navigate. Grim batol will inevitably be released and that's a pain for horde chars to get to. Loose ends are going to be tied up soon
Jun 20th 2009 8:51AM unless they want to count the new BG as a raid they still owe us one new undeclared raid. My money is that it will be. . .
Yes, Yes; We've gone to Gundrak and killed their High priest, But that's not where the lore stops. The Ice Trolls were united by Frost King Malakk, not Rhino-enthusiast Gal'darah. It was under Malakk's Brutal leadership that the Ice trolls were able to hold off the Scourge and fair better against them than the humans were able to.
Yeah, I know many of us are tired of Troll instances but the fact of the matter is Trolls are Crazy important. Aside from the Tauren and Night elves most races have tons of raids devoted to them. It's just they aren't often the main Mobs. Ulduar/uldaman Are full of annoying little dwarfs and gnomes(And the vaguely human Vrykul). BC was all about the Draenei and the Blood elves, Orcs Had an Hell-fire Citadel, And the Undead and Humans Rule Wrath(I've got a theory about how all this Undead/Human tension is going to come to a head). Odd are The druid Races are going to have more than enough lore to satisfy them in Emerald dream.
Trolls however, Ruled the entire world. No other race can say that. They've been fighting the big bads for the longest period of time so it makes sense that they've got the most bad JuJu locked up in their temples. While there may be a few more Troll specific instances than for other races, it seems like there are more than there are because of the sheer number of trolls in each one. And Trolls are integral to lore so that justifies there being "So many damn Troll Instances"
Malakk is next. There is a lore gap that needs him Killed. There is an empty Village in Southern Zul'drak that the Devs probably have a plan for, and Zandalar needs to get a bigger build up for the Role it's going to play in The Maelstrom
Jun 20th 2009 8:38AM We'll see plenty more of the Caverns in due time. I Think once they start phasing old-world content(and if my speculations are correct that will be heavily done next expansion) they'll increase the scope of the Caverns of time. Only problem now is that there really isn't any lore that is relevant to our current storyline that we haven't exploited yet. Next CoS raid, What with the Maelstrom being the likely expansion, will probably be the Fall of Azshara or the first encounter on Azeroth with the Burning legion
Jun 20th 2009 8:26AM Odds are we aren't going to see anything here until the other Flights start acting up. With 3.3 We'll probably see some continuation in the Blue dragonflight story(Specifically who is gonna take over). We won't see Green until Emerald Dream comes out or is about to.
Actually, I think We're gonna end up taking all the flights down. with the possible exception of Ruby. Deathwing is still alive, Bronze may have a mutiny on their hands, Ysera has likely gone madder than Malygos did, And Blue is in an uproar.
Chamber of aspects will be around for a few more expansions yet. We'll probably see a portal to it in Maelstrom. After-all, they did say the chamber can be anywhere they need it to be.

What if my comment is "What is WoW?"
