Nov 14th 2011 4:46PM Mmmmmmmm. You've just given me the idea of the perfect gaming snack for ... well, for sometime next year: Dark chocolate ginger biscuits and some cups of http://www.wtop.com/?nid=681&sid=2632004 tea while Monking it up on a turtle. All kinds of awesome!
Oct 21st 2011 4:30PM My Mechanical Yeti can unleash a Texas Chili Bomb???!!!
Oh, that's all kindsa awesome for grandpa here ...
Oct 21st 2011 4:03PM No druids, warlocks, death knights or pallys ...
Brewmaster is a tank.
Mistweaver is a healer.
Windwalker is melee DPS.
Not a hero class.
Goblins and Worgen can't be monks.
Oct 21st 2011 3:44PM No flying in the five-zone Pandaria until level 90.
Pandaren start zone is on the back of a turtle. (And it's playable right now at B-con).
Pick faction at level 10, one-way choice, no flip-flopping.
Oct 21st 2011 3:17PM Just this:
Oct 21st 2011 3:02PM After startup quests, you choose whether your Pandaren is red/blue, Horde/Alliance; when they meet on the battlefield, it's all "Hey! Dude!"
Oct 21st 2011 10:57AM Also wishing to go on record as saying .... please, dear god, let WoWInsider announce a new commenting system ... this one posted my original, unedited post with a couple of things that drive English majors like me wild and now I can't edit it. That's what I get for attempting to tangle with the comment system on three hours of sleep. :-P
Feel like Neil Goldman, when he said ... "How about we fire up the old Segway and find a nice quiet field to do long division in? .... I mean, a nice quiet field in which to do long division. Sorry, sorry, everybody.''
Yeah. I wrote "get their first" when I meant "get there first." Sorry. Sorry everybody.
Heh. Us grammar nerds.
Oct 21st 2011 10:50AM Going on record here three hours out just to see how close I get:
Mists of Pandaria. Summer '12. Neutral Pandaren send representatives to both factions pleading for help for mysterious something wiping out their race on previously unknown continent in the south. Race between Alliance and Horde to get their first and open it up, a la Quel'danas, Firelands, etc. etc. Opens in stages with in-game events.
New level cap of 90. No new playable races. 1 new playable class. Don't really want to guess on this one, but how 'bout: Monk class which is trained only by neutral Pandaren?
Revamp/overhaul of secondary professions, especially archaeology. Burning Crusade areas get the Cataclysm treatment (overhauled quests, flyable zones). Some sort of revamp to the talent tree system.
And, if my first guess about no new races is wrong, I'll go with Pandaren/Horde and .... erg, I dunno ... Ethereals for Alliance.
Or then again ... maybe my original guess was right: http://wow.joystiq.com/2011/05/13/the-queue-three-of-the-four-winds/comments/34037643/
Looking forward in three hours to seeing how good I am at detecting these things .
Oct 20th 2011 9:59PM Yes, thank you for finally mentioning the creators. Unca Carl and Unca Don were the best of the best. The Gladstone reprints in the 90s were wonderfully awesome.
