Apr 10th 2010 2:49AM To those who say Nelf Druidism is based on connections to Elune and her powers, it's not. Rather it's based on the teachings of Cenarius and draws on the wild power of Nature. Elune comes into the equation as Cenarius is her son and she created the original Moonkin to watch over scared areas. However Druids draw their power from Nature itself and their chosen animal totem (Claw, Talon, Stag, Fang, etc.) PC Druids are cross totem, thus are known as Druids of the Wild.
On the other hand, Night Elf Priests draw their powers from Elune instead of the Light. Thus the old Night Elf Priest racial, Starfall/Starshards (which was turned into a Druid talent in Wrath) which was one of Elune's signature spells (and used by Tyrande in WC3). Based on existing lore, the Night Elves had no knowledge of the Light until the Third War when they came into contact with Humans.

Mar 31st 2010 9:37AM Blizzard has not been an independent company (aka, not a division of another company) since 1994 (the same year that Blizzard Entertainment started using it's present name). Blizzard was purchased by a company called Davidson and Associates (known for Math Blaster and other educational software). Then DA was purchased by CUC International along with then gaming titan Sierra On-Line. Then via a series of mergers CUC became Cedant (a large conglomerate which operated in many fields). Cedant was forced to diverge most of its buisness, thus their gaming division (Blizzard, Sierra, Knowledge Adventure) was sold to the French company, Havas. Havas was in turn eaten by Vivendi. Vivendi eventually merged it's game division (Vivendi Games) with Activision and is the majority partner. However they chose to use the Blizzard name instead of Vivendi in the name of the new company. It could have been Activision Vivendi.
Mar 25th 2010 5:10AM It makes perfect sense to me for Blizzard to license the TCG to a spin-off company headed by an ex-Blizzard employee. It allows Blizzard control over it's IP, artwork, etc however they don't have to deal with the day to day work of designing new decks, running tournaments, etc.
Mar 15th 2010 1:49PM He he, I read this as I am waiting on a pot of curried wings to finish their cooking so I can dive into them. The smell is getting me good and ready to dive into said curry.
Mar 6th 2010 3:48AM I have to agree about getting the drop on stealthed rogues. I am your basic Feline Druid and I have a tendency to eat Rogues when I get the drop on them. Even when they get the drop on me, I tend to do well and often turn the tables. Of course, it helps that I have been playing my class since Classic and have notched up many PvP kills.
Feb 2nd 2010 4:10PM Oh boy, I had my house mate wonder just what on earth was I laughing at. Between the Hitchiker's Guilde, the BttF, and RK jokes, I was both geeking out and laughing at the same time. A most excellent AaFL.
Now I just wonder how the Banshee Queen is going to handle all us mortals asking her questions like a bunch of noisy tabloid "journalists"?
Jan 29th 2010 3:18AM From what I read from the BlizzCon notes, the new Blackrock Spire instance will open out of Nefarion's throne room. Nef's room does exist in the game world (it's mostly an object that you see when you fly from IF to Stormwind, however in Cataclysm, it can be fully textured and then accessible via flying mounts. So BWL can stay the game (in theory) while the new instance could be considered an continuation of BWL (just as BWL can be considered a continuation of Blackrock Spire)
