Yaaay! You're so good to us! :)
Jun 1st 2010 2:07AM Why oh why does Varian have no neck? I really think I could appreciate him if that model wasnt so ugly. I really do.
More to the point, just because the Dwarven military don't use mages doesn't mean they don't exist. I believe Dwarf Mages were playable in beta (or possibly alpha). I'd much rather see open war with the Dark Irons than have them join the Alliance. Perhaps we'll see something along these lines in Cataclysm? Lakeshire (or perhaps the pass into the Burning Steppes) fortified and some alliance army presense in these zones? I've always liked the zones around Blackrock Mountain, I was kinda dissapointed to find nothing but different coloured spiders and black drakes over most of them...
Except the Slag Pits in Searing Gorge. Those were pretty badass.
May 30th 2010 1:39AM I remember noticing those statues back in Vanilla on my first character... And here I've never given a thought to her they were... Awesome.
Excellent articles as always, this series has single-handedly gotten me excited for Cataclysm. Keep 'em coming. :)
May 30th 2010 1:38AM Oh I had a home alright... A majestic underground metropolis in the foothills of Dun Morogh. D'you know it?
Gnomes these days... too easily distracted, that's yer problem... Why, back in my day we knew how to stay focused on the tasks at hand... AND THERE WERE SEVEN OF THEM! Now you're all too obsessed with yer "Witch Kings" and "GearScore's" and "gearblaster mechaPods" to get anything done... *grumble*
Now if you need me I'll be over here... apparently talking to myself... *limps away, muttering bitterly*

May 22nd 2010 8:58PM I found myself in the Pig and Whistle tavern just the other day. I woke up in the cellar with the second worst headache I've ever had, covered in blood and clinging on to this tankard like there was no tommorow.
...and by the Makers I wish there hadn't been...
I'd had no idea how I'd gotten there, of course, but nothing rattles this old veteran. In fact, I'd woken up much the same way before, because if there's one thing my gran'pappy taught me, is that you never want to wake up in your workshop with a hangover. That's how good ol' Felix Filchwhistle finally snapped... Did I ever tell you about him?
... right, right, the mug. I'm old, not deaf.
Right well supposedly I'd knocked Bartelby the drunk out cold and pried this mug out of his hands. He certainly didn't want to part with it, it seems... Anyhow, there he was at the bar again, with two black eyes, swearing into his ale... And the warrior... Barry Hurlguard? These humans have such confusing names... What were we talking about?
Right, well, he taught me a brand new fightin' stance and everything.
Thing is... I've forgotten it all...
May 8th 2010 9:21PM Flight Sergeant Bindle Blastcap: Log
It would seem an old gnomes badgering has finally gotten somewhere, as the gnomeregan forces are returning home. It's a shame. I'd have liked to give that "witch king" a piece of my mind myself, but the bloody cold makes my joints hurt.
Still no sign of any offensive so I've been making some modifications to my flying machine to allow it to fly in the Azerothian atmosphere... Mother-of-Titans it's a damned pain. I'll not be able to get 'er in the air without, say, a sundering of the elemental planes... I've considered constructing a device that could momentarily fold the inter-dimensional barriers and allow flight with the use of some Eternal Air and a Truesilver Transformer, but I'm already on thin ice after the Poultryizer incident last thursday. Threatened to evict me and everything... Kids these days... *grumbles*
Did I tell you I've come back from Northrend?
The irony is, I've got Leyla, my MK II Gnomish Bomber, stashed away in the flight bay in Gnomeregan in perfect condition.
At least, she better be in perfect condition or those bloody Troggs will have hell to pay.
