Gurky made some new friends at BlizzCon. One of them is all business, the other is more of the wild child of the group.
Do we know the timeline for Gilneas? I play on an RP server and am heavily into the lore but I'm having trouble figuring out how long the Greymane wall has been up and also how far in the past that worgen players will be during the first few levels. The little movie they showed at BlizzCon shows the moon changing by what looks to be about a week and a half, so does that mean the human-based events take place that far back before the launch of Cata, or are we looking at months?
The Greymane Wall had been up for roughly 25 years, give or take a year or two, prior to Cataclysm. The opening events in Gilneas originally took place one year before Cataclysm, but now the length of time is indeterminate -- Blizzard removed the "one year later" reference some time ago.
However, in order for the timeline to make sense, there has to have been time for the Scythe of Elune to be rediscovered in Grizzly Hills and moved. You can assume that your character has had around a year to run wild while the Gilneans set up their worgen hunts.
Once you've got your human mind back, it's mere days or hours before the cataclysm officially hits.
WoW Insider-specific question here:
Any news on those WoW TCG writers? I had sent in my application but haven't seen anything regarding that. Sacco's recent review reminded me of it.
If you mean establishing a permanent/semi-permanent WoW TCG column, we're still considering it. If we green light it, we'll be sure to let people know that we're looking for writers.
This has probably been asked, but is there any word on troll/worgen druid flight, travel or boomkin models?
Travel form remains the same for all races. Flight form remains the same for races in the same faction. Moonkin form gets a recolor for the more recent druid races.
If Arthas was "sleeping," for lack of a better word, until the beginning of Wrath, why hasn't he got a beard? His hair grew down his back ... ? Even my brother (the least hairy guy ever born outside of Rivendell) would have at least peach fuzz after nearly a decade.
Dead people don't grow beards.
