Does Garrosh Hellscream deserve to die? {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2012 2:05PM Garrosh should be dishonorably kicked out of the Horde - a fate worse for an orc than death. He should forever have to wander the world filled with hundreds of races that want him dead a defaced and distrusted orc. Eventually, he may end up coming into contact with some new, evil power. Garrosh, with a little revenge in his mind, takes up this power for a future villian

Mar 21st 2012 11:21PM Um, Terracotta Army raid boss? YES, PLEASE.

What's a "Terracotta"? Sounds deadly and earthy

Mar 20th 2012 11:27AM I hope he isn't killed. Knocked out of power and perhaps put to shame, maybe to forever wander the world as an egomaniacal dishonored Orc (who may someday stumble upon a forbidden power to become a new villian) but please Blizzard don't kill him!

As for the new Warchief, Vol'Jin.

Mar 20th 2012 11:22AM I asked this in the LIVE Q&A yesterday and thanks so much for answering my question. Sacco mentioned that his Draenei did not have any racials in the Press Event game version of MoP (or the Alpha, whichever one you guys played)

So, exactly how high is the priority for new racials to be added into the game? Sounds a bit low priority, but as a Dwarf of 5 years, I really wish I could have a useful racial (Stoneform is okay, but diseases and bleeds are pretty easy to reapply) and they gave my gun spec racial to Worgen.

Whereas Humans and Blood Elves have very strong and situational racials, so much so that both dominate a server's demographics based solely on that reasoning (Humans at around 40% of all Alliance, Blood Elf at around 30%)

I understand that ultimately people will play what they want, but those who want both looks and racials will still select Human or Blood Elf. And with Pandaren being added in with what the community agrees on incredibly powerful racial abilities, the days of race distribution and the 'true Horde' mentality may be gone for good.

I was kind of disappointed that nobody asked this question at the event, from all media sources.. racials were such a big deal in Wrath. Seems nobody cares anymore.

Mar 19th 2012 1:10PM Guys! any word on new racials at all? If MoP is released with the current racial traits, we'd see nothing but Humans, Blood Elves and Pandaren.

Are updated racials on the dinner plate at all in MoP?

Blizzard's post-mortem on Cataclysm dungeons and raids {WoW}

Mar 5th 2012 10:20PM I like that Blizzard stays optimistic about things. I, however, think the least of Cataclysm's raid/dungeon problems was entry-level Heroics. In my opinion, Heroics and raids felt too fast-paced and sloppy, especially Dragon Soul. While I understand not everyone likes to wait and feel like a part of the world. I hated how Dragon Soul's use of phasing was done instantaneously (we dont see the Alliance ship drifting in or Twilight's Hammer reatreating even though Afrasiabi says they are).

All in all, I felt rushed through the raid I was looking forward to the most and ended with a confused look on my face wondering just what all happened.

Feb 25th 2012 10:57PM How is making Paladins more versatile "utterly retarded"?

WRUP: Just say no to Brandon Tartikoff {WoW}

Feb 24th 2012 9:52PM Ah yes, the Blood Elf. Quite popular amongst the kids, yet they have such an adult lifestyle.

Good thing us ol' Dwarves don't teach our Human and Night Elf-playing youngsters on the alliance any bad habits... *hic*

Wouldn't this be cool? The dark trolls and the underworld {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2012 5:04PM Blood Elves are, if anything, more of a form of comic relief than Trolls. Goblins are also.

You have these prissy, uptight socialites who ironically got thrown into a group of dirty, smelly barbarians and get consistently teased (even by Blizzard) of their femininity.

Whereas Goblins just blow things up and have little common sense.

Trolls ar eone of the more serious races of the Horde

The Call of Nyorloth: Your favorite Azerothian relationships {WoW}

Feb 13th 2012 10:57PM Tholo and Anren from the Firelands dailies. Not only are they same-sex, but cross-racial as well. Rather or not they're "Good Druid friends" or otherwise, the relationship between them is there.
