Mar 23rd 2012 4:31PM Admittedly, I play Alliance. I'm very excited to see how they're planning on developing Varian.
I would absolutely be thrilled if instead of Thrall enacting Haggi Battlecrows seen above, if Varian were given the opportunity to be merciful instead. Even potentially binding Garrosh, and turning him over to the Horde leadership - Cairne, Voljin, etc.
I know that might not make all the ally "Raze Org to the Ground" fanboys happy, but as an alliance member, I want a leader that I can fall in behind, somebody that I can be proud of. Let Varian show restraint, wisdom, and mercy.
I wouldn't object too loudly if Voljin still wanted to take a shot though....
Mar 23rd 2012 3:37PM Yep. In fact, account wide pets are the only thing they have 100% confirmed so far. From my understanding, the pets are going to have their own levels. So if you level a pet on one character, it will have the same level across all of your characters.
What I'm really dying for, is to find out if / how they're going to implement account wide Achievements. I'm hoping that "What a long strange trip" will confer Epic super duper flying on all of my characters that don't have it, but are eligible for it.
Mar 19th 2012 7:27AM It's purely speculation at this point, but we do know Garrosh is going to do something HORRENDOUS. Warcrimes are warcrimes.
I'm thinking maybe execute Chen Stoutmantle? For assisting the enemy?
Or maybe a mass killing of the Alliance aligned Pandaren. But that's kinda been done already in south barrens, to the Horde. (against the commanding officers instructions, BTW)
Mar 16th 2012 2:09PM Drak, I would suggest if you need to do a month of dailies to buy a stack of silverleaf, you're doing it wrong.
Farm a stack of silverleaf or two, and then you're up a hypothetical 10K.
Mar 16th 2012 2:04PM Foiled by the comment system! This was supposed to be in response to Kazzual's post about a gold squish about two pages back.
Mar 16th 2012 1:57PM You do realize, that if silverleaf is selling for 10k a stack, you could go out and farm a stack of silverleaf. Instant 10k!
I don't understand the idea that people can't buy necessities. Everything that you NEED in game is accessible, and a lot of things are farmable. Sure, some things are ridiculously priced. I would love to have a Spectral Tiger mount, but I can't afford it. Some folks can. I would love to complete my collection of enchanting rare drop patterns. Still a bit pricy.
In general, anything that is a "random" or "rare" drop in game, is going to be more expensive than what a average player can afford. I can't think of an example of anything that you NEED to win at WoW that is a rare drop. (feel free to point something out if you can think of something, I'm interested to hear others thoughts!)
Everything else is pretty much farmable. It will take time, but you can be self sufficient in the game. Inflation won't effect you. If basic materials, or a product becomes expensive, make it for yourself, or even better sell some of the expensive materials. I take issue with people talking about "removing" or "squishing" gold levels.
On a positive note, I look forward to continuing inflation. Some of the gold sinks of years past (Epic Flying, Traveller's Tundra Mammoth) are going to be so much more affordable and accessible over time.
Mar 14th 2012 4:45PM I don't know if I like this idea, but I could see Blizzard using Thrall's daughter as a means to bridge the human and orc gap/hatred. Heck, Thrall would be acting as a regular parent, placing his desires and what he failed to accomplish, peace, onto his daughter's shoulders.
Particularly, with the well intended, slightly awkward relationship development between Thrall and Aggra, I could see Blizzard moving into even more awkward territory:
Think of the angsty teenage love story! The racist (speciesist?) father! Any age difference issues could be retconned. In some parts of the WoW universe, I'm sure Anduin is still just a gangly boy.
Feb 27th 2012 12:33PM I think I read something about this in a TFH a long time ago.
There's a little scene in South Shore inside of the Durnholde/Caverns of time instance, where a black voidish material had damaged a paladin's hand. The group of paladins and priests decided to destroy the material with the light, and the material absorbed the light. Long story short, they took the fully energized light crystal and used it to forge the Ashbringer.
Do you think the material had any connection with the light/dark cycles of the Naruu?
How cool would it be to "purify" our next legendary that drops as a void imbued weapon?
Feb 20th 2012 3:52PM I mentioned this in a reply to another poster, but unless it detects items in your bag as well, that will be worthless.
Particularly, as a feral druid, this would make my life a living hell trying to build up both my feral specs especially if it detected items in bags. Devil's advocating to myself, though, That may be why they're adding a fourth tree for druids, or a benefit of that decision. There would be other problems with PVP gear as well. IMO pieces in RF will become untradeable in the future.
Feb 20th 2012 3:31PM You touch on some good points in here, but I think you're underestimating the work that some of these fixes would take.
For an example, I'm a druid that enjoys playing 3 of my 4 available specs. Let's say that I'm running a feral dps spec, but usually I run feral tank. If I leave my dedicated tank shoulders in my bag, and use a lower iLvl set dedicated to kitty dps, should I be allowed to roll on a kitty upgrade? Even if blizzard's system detected iLvl in my bags? What if I pvp, and have those high iLvl shoulders in my bag?
I think BOP, non-tradeable drops would probably be the best solution, but who knows how difficult (or simple) that would be to implement?
I have benefited from the Raid Finder. I'm glad Blizzard released it. My only wish is that it would feel more like a finished product, as opposed to a beta for RF in Mists of Pandara
