Will Ask a Faction Leader ever return?
I get asked this a lot, and man, I don't know. AAFL was really fun to write but I wrote a lot of it in the transition phase between Wrath and Cataclysm, when there was a lot of story potential for various faction leaders. A lot has changed since then. Read Genn Greymane's now and see if it sounds like him at all (it doesn't). Most of the faction leaders have been covered and if they haven't it's because they're just not very interesting to write about (see: Varian). My favorite AAFLs are ones that don't even deal with player factions; Nexus-Prince Haramad and High-Shaman Rakjak are (I think) hilarious. The issue is coming up with a hook for those types of characters.
It's all pandas and war right now. Not a lot of hooks to be found there. We'll see where MoP takes us.
Has there been any word on when the guild perks are overhauling? Is the pre-patch, or x-pac release? Going to miss have group, will travel :(
I'm really excited about the in-game Theramore event taking place as soon as the new patch releases next week, however I'm a little conflicted. Should I hold off on playing through the in-game event first to avoid spoilers in the new Tides of War book coming out soon? I would hate for the new patch event to ruin something in the book for me.
Theramore won't even be available when 5.0.4 lands. You have plenty of time to read the book.
Where did the night elves consider their capital to be prior to growing Teldrassil? At first I thought Ashenvale, but there don't seem to be enough buildings around for it to be a capital (unless the majority of the population were just scattered around Ashenvale and not congregated in one area). Then I thought Hyjal -- which would make more sense, seeing as they consider it to be a very significant place, what with Nordrassil being there. The final battle of the Third War could have been what prompted them to find a new sanctuary. Thoughts?
This has never really been addressed by Blizzard. Evidence points to there being no capital city at all in the millennia between Zin-Azshari and Darnassus, and weird stuff like the night elf language being called "Darnassian" doesn't help either. Short answer is "we don't know."
