Oct 27th 2011 4:13PM Regarding Cross-Faction communication –

The focus of this expansion, as stated by Blizzard, is the War itself between the Horde and Alliance. Even if (in my opinion, of course) it [c-f comm.] is silly, broken, and goes against almost all canon lore, I don’t believe Blizzard will lift this restriction during this expansion.

People have stated numerous times the simplicity with which one can create a cross-faction alt, for the purpose of griefing, so griefing is a fairly poor reason to keep up this barrier to communication. The “War,” on the other hand, might mean that, even if we were (from a lore standpoint) able to communicate with the other faction, our characters actively choose not to.

**Also, a part of me gets some goofy pleasure from being forced into emotication (emote communication) with the opposite faction. See the following scenario, where 'AP' is a level 30 Alliance Priest, and 'HW' is a level 33 Horde Warrior. Hope you find it amusing! :D

AP: "Ugh, 5 deaths already; this Razormane rare elite has been kicking my ass, and none of my friends or guildies are on. What to do, what to do?!"
HW enters from stage left.
AP: "Oh snap, a level 33 Horde warrior! Maybe he can help me with this mob?"
AP /targets HW and /waves.
HW: "Odd, this Alliance priest is waving at me. Eh, I’ll be polite and wave back."
HW /targets AP and /waves.
AP: "Sweet, he acknowledged me! Hmm, now how do I get him to help me with this rare elite?"
AP /targets Hagg Taurenbane and /points, and then /cries.
HW: "What’s he pointing at? Wow, a rare elite! Ahh, this priest must’ve been having a hard time with that mob."
HW targets Hagg Taurenbane and /points, then /growls.
AP: "He gets it! Holy crap, I can’t believe it. Normally they just charge in and try to get the kill themselves. Hagg, prepare to meet your doom!"
AP /casts Holy Word: Chastise at Hagg Taurenbane, followed swiftly by Shadow Word Pain and Devouring Plague.
HW then /casts charge, running headlong to meet Hagg in close combat, but accidentally pulls nearby Razormane mobs.
HW: "Oh ****, oh ****, not good…"
Soon, Hagg Taurenbane falls to the combined onslaught, but unfortunately, so too does the valiant Horde warrior, due primarily to the other Razormane enemies.
HW: "Aaarrgh, stupid mother****ing adds."
The Alliance priest runs away, forcing the mobs to tether back to their spawn positions.
HW begins his corpse run from the thankfully close graveyard.
HW: "Ugh, stupid priest, and stupid adds. I should’ve just charged in right away. At least then I would’ve gotten some sweet loot off of Hagg."
AP: "That was awfully kind of that Horde warrior. Phew, I should go loot Hagg’s corpse, see what goodies he dropped! I hope those 6 deaths were worth it…"
AP loots Hagg Taurenbane, and receives Twilight Cuffs of Spirit.
AP: "FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU…"

Oct 21st 2011 3:08PM I'd love a starter area for the Pandaren in which, through quests, you determine your faction. That would be pretty epic. I hope it's not simply a "click" in the character creation process.

How do you prepare for TOR?
Ensure your current playerbase has an active subscription through the new MMO's first couple of months, with Diablo 3 being the "bonus" kicker.

F***in' genius.
