Apr 4th 2012 1:35PM I'm just saying that overcoming these issues would be trivial if the devs wanted to.
Apr 4th 2012 12:47PM @puntable you could say most of the the same things about the Undead.
Apr 4th 2012 12:02PM I'm betting (hoping. SO HOPING) the next playable race will be Ethereals. I would race-change my arcane mage to an ethereal in a heartbeat. Considering their arrival in SW/ORG to replace the perfectly serviceable NPCs that were already there, it follows (totally speculatively, naturally) that Blizz reminding us they exist is paving the way for them to be playable, or at least have a non-trivial presence, at some point in the future.
Apr 3rd 2012 4:44PM This is almost just as bad.
You can't assume that a female character implies a female player, and you can't assume that the nadir of the argument is to do x "as well as a man." That comparison shouldn't even exist in-game; there's a difference between, "good job, honey. Way to swing that sword. I bet your daddy's proud," and genuine gender-blindness.
Apr 3rd 2012 4:39PM 1. Go look up "false dichotomy" somewhere. I'll wait.
2. SOME guys want to be cool and SOME girls want to look pretty. SOME guys want to wear a tiara and dance on top of the Stormwind fountain and SOME girls want to go Titan's Grip. Blizzard has a habit of making those choices for people, and you're not helping.
3. Your mogging point doesn't hold water because the same pieces of armor that cover a male character head to toe in plate is structured into a midriff-exposing chest plate for female characters. If you want fantasy rpg armor design to stay believable, having armor that actually protects women from getting shivved in the kidneys is a good start.
4. I don't have to call you a pig because you did it yourself. good job.
Mar 25th 2012 3:40PM The remaining cosmetic ranged weapon slots for warriors and rogues are there so that they can equip legendaries those classes may already have - taking away that ability would be a PR NIGHTMARE.
Mar 23rd 2012 4:39PM you actually get 2 per day, one through the website and one in-game.
Mar 23rd 2012 11:37AM If you had said you were rolling a furry warrior, my head may have exploded from the overlapping punmanship.
Mar 21st 2012 12:57PM Talents, obviously. That's a no-brainer.
But profession news will be welcome - I'm an engineer and feel like I got shafted in Cata, so I've got my fingers crossed for something non-lame.
And I'd like to see what we get by way of glyphs.
The actual pandaria content, I can honestly take or leave. I want to know how actually playing my mage is going to feel different.
