Jul 16th 2011 12:38PM What confuses me is that, in a society so wrapped around honor in combat, that the whole poisoned weapon thing was handwaved away. Even if Garrosh didn't know, it still reflects poorly on him, and should definitely dishonor him. So either a) Garrosh kept it hush-hush or b) the orcs are incredibly stupid.
Jul 12th 2011 4:18PM I think Thrall is a symptom of something that's gone wrong with WoW: NPCs are the main heroes of the game, not you. I'm glad to see some of the racial leaders being more active in the world, but not when I'm lobbing frostbolts at something that leader is just going to one-shot anyway. Situations where they crop up are situations where you're just along for the ride. Remove your presence, and nothing would change. And if that doesn't make your character insignificant, I don't know what will.
Apr 14th 2011 8:06PM Uh... what does the Horde need salvation from, exactly? Besides the rule of Hellscream?
Mar 6th 2011 7:55PM When they were first introduced, I was disappointed the Horde was getting Goblins, while the Alliance were getting werewolves. Granted, I was disappointed that the Alliance's race isn't really a race, just a curse. But then, I heard the Goblin music. It hit such a perfectly cheery and goofy tone that I began to change my mind. When I got the beta invite, I went Goblin. I even re-leveled that Goblin when Cata went live.
In my opinion, having gone through both starting zones, they are enjoyable exactly one time. The linearity of both zones, and the huge importance placed upon the story of each, means that the replay value of each is incredibly diminished. Think about the original starting zones, and the Belf and Dranei zones. They all had a very basic story, but more importantly, there were a lot of quests you could do in varying orders, or even skip. Both Goblin and Worgen zones shoot you down one path, blocking any progress unless you complete all of the required quests. My other issue is the vehicle/gunning segments. Blizzard seems to want to keep throwing these at us ever since Wrath, and doing the Nth version of "Use your cannon to kill 100 enemies!" gets old fast.
My biggest beef with the Worgen zone is that it doesn't make me want to play a Worgen. It makes me want to play an undead.
