Mar 23rd 2012 12:37AM Your story was hilarious. I laughed, then I read it outloud to my boyfriend who doesn't even play WoW, and he laughed too. :p
(I get attached to all my characters, so I don't think I could do it either!)
Dec 23rd 2011 5:32AM It's pretty so I might as well try. :)
Nov 30th 2011 6:27PM @glyakk - I second that! What great creativity, and it'd get the raid all fired up to seek vengeance for their fallen comrades. I both love and hate these brilliant fan ideas because, especially after the fact, they'll only ever happen in our imaginations. *sadfase*
Nov 30th 2011 2:59PM I've never even had anyone reply to a comment of mine before, this is pretty intense with all the different viewpoints! Thank you everyone for being respectful, I really did enjoy reading each comment, especially the suggestions for how Deathwing could have had more of a presence without being all in your face.
I think sometimes Blizzard struggles to convey lore in a way that people will really understand. That leaves us feeling disconnected from the story and maybe not grasping the reasoning behind the Cataclysm and Deathwing's madness. At least for me, sometimes quest text just doesn't sink in and I have to do some research outside of the game.
Essentially, the plot wasn't as clear-cut this expansion, and therefore it may have behooved Blizzard to take steps to make it more accessible. I read about Deathwing in a warcraft novel and he was damn scary. He took in a human form and tricked everyone around him into thinking he was a real good guy. He made you hate and fear him. But in the game I didn't find him threatening. Believe me I was not looking for cause to complain, and I feel stupid for not always understanding what's going on.
Nov 30th 2011 1:11PM You know all these cool cinematics make me want to be like YEAH TAKE THAT BASTARD DOWN but I can't quite feel that way because Deathwing has had such a limited presence in the world. I've been burninated by him twice but otherwise I never think about him actually existing as a genuine threat. Certainly not like I did with the Lich King. So much potential was squandered with Cataclysm. :( And I hate to say it too because I love WoW, but I can't help feeling disappointed.
Regardless, these are pretty awesome cinematics. Cheers to a Deathwing-free future with more tangible threats. :)
Nov 30th 2011 1:02PM That was really well done. Catchy song and some great footage too. At the end when she fell out of the sky with wings it looked awesome.
I can't believe I'm saying this but it made me want to level Archaeology. I'm STILL sitting at 1 point saying I'll start leveling arch "tomorrow" really I will! ^^ (And I love to collect "junk" and weird items so likely I know I'll just become way too obsessed with finding a certain trinket like our poor friend in the video!).
Nov 21st 2011 1:16PM Duuuuude it looks so much better yet still in the "spirit" of the old human model. Do want!
