Mar 11th 2012 9:29AM Some pretty big oversights in the comments.
First of all, it's going to be a 5-man boss, simply due to the limits of a one-week lock out, and it'll be the first boss of it's instance, as most instances are linear.
Simply due to their inaccessibility pre-LFD, Deadmines and Ragefire Chasm can likely be ruled out.
For the most part, anything that's not endgame is unlikely to be killed that much - irrelevant of how many characters have made it their stomping ground, you can only kill Targaram the Hungerer a handful of time before you're no longer level appropriate.
Even considering the end-game, there's very little value for normals once you've outgeared them, considering the meager Justice Points they award.
All thing considered, the boss is likely the first boss of a Wrath of the Lich King heroic mode dungeon, something avaliable in LFD, and from one of the longer patch content cycles.
I could see an argument for it being the eagle boss from ZA, or snake from ZG - a huge quantity of the player-base did both of those multiple times a week for months on end. Though it could be said that the length of 4.2 is pretty inconsequential in comparison to content that has been accessible for over half a decade now, it's important to remember just how vital that content was for gearing almost every character for those few months.
It's a pretty cheaty answer, but the answer is probably Balinda Stonehearth / Galvangar, considering how long they've been both accessible and relevant in game, and their total lack of a lock-out system.
Feb 18th 2012 8:20AM I'd happily use the book, anyway, It's a spelltome!
As for the boot, I'll agree with you on that. I think it's supposed to represent the Spring icon, but it doesn't carry across so well in 3D.
Feb 18th 2012 8:17AM I suppose the pieces have to be quite bulky to be cast properly in that medium, although the Mecha-Gnome arms would appear to disagree
When it was announced I was expecting to see a few more non-combat pets, possibly even a Monopoly exclusive one that would join you in game á la Windrider/Griffon pets.
Perky Pug would be fun, a WoW take on an existing Monopoly piece. I had also expected to see a few mounts, a Kodo and a Ram maybe? Both are pretty iconic WoW concepts.
Class pieces would be cool, using a piece of loot iconic to that class? If you're going to do a Doomhammer, you might as well do a Sulfuras.
Jan 8th 2012 12:10PM I'd always assumed the Exodar was the flagship of the Draeanei fleet, considering it's size relative to Tempest Keep and the other vessels still in Netherstorm.
Hopefully we'll be hearing more from our squid-faced allies in Velen's short story.
Dec 30th 2011 9:10PM On topic... Lots of WoW, Skyrim, another playthrough of Torchlight, and I've finally picked up Bastion in the Steam sale so I'm sure that'll be making an appearance in the next week or so.
For New Years resolutions, get out of the country a little more. In game though, get my Warrior and Warlock to 85, then start a Rogue, which will hopefully be maxed before Pandaren's arrive at our shores in Spring/early-Summer.
Happy New Year!
Dec 30th 2011 8:57PM I'll be celebrating! My birthday is on Saturday (New Year's Eve)
It's not quite as good as it sounds, one day of celebration for the price of two.
Still, I've graduated from teenager-dom, and will never be able to enjoy Wheatus' Teenage Dirtbag, not that I ever did before.
Ding 20! Better go and get my Apprentice Riding.
Oct 16th 2011 12:11PM Crazy that you'd choose that, of all songs.
That's my WoW-nostalgia song, literally had it on repeat while I was leveling my second character, a Horde hunter in 2007. I can't go back to Desolace without thinking of it, even post-Cata.
Just sounds like centaurs with no ears to me.
Jul 13th 2011 12:08PM Absolutely love Big Crits, cannot wait for Series 4.
Oh, and for something a little more constructive ; intro music (before anyone asks) is Spirit of the Universe from the Matrix Revolutions Soundtrack.
Jul 12th 2011 8:12AM On topic however, The Explorer title, got it on all 7 of my 85s.
Jul 12th 2011 8:10AM Hehe, looks like you've got quick a backlog of Seed'd Breakfast Topics, this one looks like it was written before 3.1.
