I was never clear on what faction capitals would be with the worgen and goblin stuff ... do they share, since their homelands are "lost"?
The Bilgewater Cartel goblins are basically getting two new places to call home: a district in Orgrimmar called the Goblin Slums as well as the new Bilgewater Harbor in Azshara, complete with giant cannon. Goblins are also ever-present in the Horde, popping up alongside all of the Horde races all over Azeroth. They have been firmly integrated into the Horde in every aspect.
The worgen, on the other hand, are given a tree in Darnassus called The Howling Oak, which serves as a type of druid enclave as well as general worgen headquarters of sorts, until they can wrest their homeland back from the Forsaken's onslaught. At one point, worgen were supposed to have a district in Stormwind, but either that was scrapped or Deathwing decided to destroy it. Also, worgen pop up from time to time (healing the lands and helping out the night elves or being recruited into the Argent Crusade), but nowhere near as seamlessly as the goblins, for the most part.
I'm planning to buy a new computer before Deathwing bursts through into Azeroth.
My question is: How might I save my addon configurations (and I assume the addons themselves might come along for the journey, if not, doesn't matter -- it's the settings I care about) onto a memory stick or some such device so that I can just load them in and not spend hours reconfiguring everything again?
I doubt it would matter, but it'll be from Vista to Windows 7.
One of the coolest features of World of Warcraft is that the game doesn't do any tricky, weird DLL or registry sharing and such for Windows machines. You can copy your entire WoW folder onto an external drive or separate hard disk in your computer, install the new hardware, copy over the folder and be perfectly fine. Just remember to make sure all the account and character names match up in the WTF folder structure, and you should be good to go.
If you do not want to copy over the whole folder, keep your Interface folder and your WTF folder intact, and you should be all right.
Adonas Hydraxis asked:
With the Sunwell intact, shouldn't blood elves' eyes change from green to a normal glow since they are no longer addicted to fel energies as their source?
I think it would be pretty cool if, over time, the blood elves' addiction subsided and they regained their regular eye color. However, I would imagine they are staying green because of the lingering fel energy, or it is a byproduct of an old dependency -- much like how the orcs are still green, even though their demonic taint was removed after Grom killed Mannoroth.
It would be an awesome customization step for Blizzard to maybe let some races change a bit to accommodate new styles or the new realities in game, like having the option of changing your orc's skin color due to the absence of demonic magic or clearing up those green eyes. We're getting a ton of new hairstyles, so you never know ...
