Don't care that I've used that image before while traveling. You guys want Queues, by golly, you can deal with a repeat image every now and then. No sass!
Jacob Kuntzman asked:
I keep seeing and hearing that Hyjal and Vashj'ir will be level 80-82 zones. Is this right? Is Blizzard breaking from their previous pattern of offering the new batch of content to those two levels under? Outland at 58, Northrend at 68 ... So are the quests in Hyjal and Vashj'ir not offered at 78?
This is correct. You can only quest in Hyjal and Vashj'ir at 80. I can't speak as to the reasoning, but I assume it has something to do with the desired challenge for level 80 players in those zones. Values would either be too high for 78s or too easy for 80s.
Regarding characters on the loading screens, why is it the faction leaders of all the races, and a random worgen and goblin from early concept art? Why not have Greymane and Gallywix?
I saw Blizzard artists working on official Gallywix and Greymane art at BlizzCon, so it's possible it's not too far off and the generic worgo/gobbo pics are just placeholders.
Let me apologize in advance if this has already been asked. With Ragnaros moving to the Firelands in Cataclysm, will Molten Core be removed from the game? I ask because I have not been playing WoW for very long and I'm a somewhat casual player but I've always wanted to do Molten Core. My guildmates are also pretty casual though, so we never pull our stuff together enough to actually run it. I'd be bummed if I missed my chance to do this classic raid.
Anyone who wants to go back to that boring orange hellhole in Cataclysm will find it's the same boring orange hellhole it's always been.
Why does no one ever talk about troll warlocks (trollocks)? What is their backstory? They don't even show up on the class matrix list and I'm playing one right now.
New race/class combos are divided into several types, such as the ones below:
- Existed but unplayable previously blood elf warriors, dwarf shaman, night elf mages
- The best of possible options for expanding a class with low representation troll druids, tauren paladins
- Ones that just kind of fit without explanation and we kind of wonder why they weren't around before troll warlocks
