Mar 22nd 2012 11:14AM Does Vol'jin have a shot at becoming Warchief? Or is that strictly an orc affair?

Check out Guild Wars 2 ... they are doing away with the Holy Trinity ... I am pretty interested to see how it turns out!
Jan 23rd 2012 5:27PM The counter argument here, though, is that legendary aren't YOURS. Unless you are finishing the quest on your own, you can't really say you deserve it all to yourself. I know it's hard to get away from that playground mentality ... TOYS ARE MINE ... but I think the guild-shared legendary is an interesting one.
I would rather they implement something like that or get rid of legendaries all together.
Jan 22nd 2012 2:59PM Do I really need to step in for this one too? It's not a mistake ... "new" has a meaning other than "totally blacked out moon".
So in their society ... "New Moon" I'm sure could be an idiomatic expression symbolizing their new life as Worgen. Why in a fantasy game with all different creatures and cultures, do we want to scrutinize the language so strictly? And why does the Queue keep admitting these mistakes on behalf of Blizzard without second thought?
Also, if I am not mistaken, "New Moon" in it's original meaning and for many of our current or ancient cultures here on earth (which shouldn't be relevant, but some of you seem to NEED it so dearly)t means the first visible crescent of the moon... so for Worgen, that first sliver of light would be very apropos, wouldn't it?

That's my point. If we've already suspended our disbelief to that extent ... then a little redundancy in a dramatic speech performed by a bad guy isn't exactly the last brick in the fourth wall.
Where are the grammar police on "pain and suffering" and phrases like it? ... no where ... because it sounds cool and that's all you need to know.
This is entry level stuff people ;)
Jan 21st 2012 12:59PM You should be asking why the people of Azeroth are speaking English at all.
I'd imagine we are seeing the English translations of several different languages: orcish, elvish, &tc. Now, imagine one language -- a foreign language -- having 2 words for two different odorous elements (I'd imagine Azeroth has a different Periodic Table than Earth) that are very similar yet slightly different but do not have an English equivalency. Boom: "sulfur and brimstone".
Also: sometimes rhythm trumps efficiency when writing...especially in speech-making.
Dec 11th 2011 11:52AM I would probably agree with ZF ... but what about Sunken Temple!? When you don't know any better, that dungeon is amazing! I had a little post-it on my desk for the correct order to click the statues ... and when no one else in the group knew I felt like a badass Indiana Jones stepping up and taking charge.
Sure now that dungeon is tedious and mind-bottling (compared to most other quick ones) ... but back when I first leveled, that place was amazing.
