Mar 21st 2012 8:04PM I find it interesting also that this will happen right at the end of an expansion, too. Think about this: what if Garrosh accidentally overpulls the whole of the Burning Legion instead of a few helpers to squash the Alliance?
Perhaps after Mists we'll face down the might of the Legion once and for all, this time on Azeroth instead of Outland? Would sure give Blizzard a chance to progress the blood elf & draenei stories like they say they've wanted to, and it might even open up a door for them to do more with Illidan's story -- which they've also hinted at. Maybe we'll even find out where the heck Maive ran off to...
Mar 20th 2012 7:01PM As a lore fan, I love the concept of getting more folks edumacated about the tales of Azeroth, and thus give kudos for the effort here.
1) I kept getting distracted by the mispronunciations. Every time I heard "Menenthil" or "Northend" instead of "Menethil" or "Northrend" it just made my mind lose focus from the film.
2) The voice. For one thing, despite the author's protests, it does sound an awful lot like Oxhorn's -- maybe not an exact copy, but close enough to be a distraction. I also kinda agree with @Aetain above: it's just not easy to listen to for that long.
I would also add that the ADD in me started getting a college lecture vibe out of the thing. After a couple minutes, I kinda felt myself thinking "more show, less tell!"
Like I say, I love the concept -- I just think that (1) & (2) above keep the viewer distracted from the content too much of the time, and that's a shame. Don't give the viewer a hook to pull themselves out of the story, and you've got a great thing going!
Feb 21st 2012 12:21AM No no no -- not *that* Theramore, alapin. I'm talking about Theramore from a long time ago, when Daelin Proudmoore was supposedly axed (literally and figuratively).
I suspect that if the rumored events are true this summer and Theramore sends out a distress signal under siege, perhaps the world will be surprised to see an old familiar face at the helm of the Kul'Tiras fleet coming to the defense of the younger Proudmoore's home.
Feb 21st 2012 12:05AM Well, they have been teasing Kul'Tiras for awhile, and considering the events rumored to be striking Dustwallow Marsh this summer...
Oh, Daelin? Is that you?
Perhaps Theramore was only a setback?
Feb 14th 2012 5:38PM I saw one comment elsewhere that suggested that this Heart of the Aspects model doesn't have a landing animation (AKA just hovers). Looking at the animation of it, it does look similar to the Dragonhawk animation (which also doesn't land). Can anyone who has purchased this mount yet confirm: does the HotA mount land, or does it just hover?
Something OCD in me just thinks flying mounts that don't land are just an affront to all that is holy. ;)
Jan 24th 2012 6:02PM I used to joke with guildies that I was exalted with Pizza Hut because my cooking skill was too low. Who knows, maybe in Titan it actually will be!
(I can see it now... Exalted rep with your favorite store/restaurant faction automatically gives you a 10% discount on purchases from the store in real life... I'm starting to like this!)
Jan 20th 2012 1:48AM That last paragraph sure did have a "Dance Studio"-esque feel to it, didn't it?
Jan 18th 2012 12:00PM Svylva,
If you'd be up for an in-game solution to that problem, I'd highly recommend the add-on Acki's Recipe List. It scans your profession windows when you open them and not only will show you which recipes you don't have yet, but where they can be acquired. If you're so inclined, you can also browse by acquisition type, or -- if you're passing through an area and want to see what's available there -- by location as well.
As a certified obsessive pattern collector, I wouldn't WoW without it! (Even works with Cooking if you're hunting down that 160th recipe. *g*)
Jan 15th 2012 12:53PM As much as I think it's silly, I'm 99.9% sure it's a mechanic to encourage world PvP. Out in the wild, allowing everyone to log out instantly would be like giving everyone a free bubble-hearth: getting ganked? Just log out for a few minutes and come right back. As it is, you can try to log out, but you'll probably be dead by the time you do if you just stand there logging out.
Jan 5th 2012 2:50AM Just to add one more Blue Post that didn't make it into this article, and it's a biggie:
The bugged Darkmoon Faire artifacts/quests were hotfixed today. Unfortunately, if you already attempted to complete the quest and got a "You have already completed this quest" message this DMF, you still can't complete it this month and will have to wait for next month.
Sounds like a hotfix written by Congress. "Hey, we've totally helped! Unless you were actually affected by the problem, in which case... sorry, still broken!"
