It's Superb Owl Sunday! Discuss all the best owls today with friends.

koboi_K asked:

If the Burning Legion wants to pay a visit to Azeroth, do they always have to be summoned via a portal? Then they need some expert in magics on the receiving end, like in the War of the Ancients. Or do they use space ships or other nether floats giving the freedom to travel wherever they want? Not sure how they came for the Battle of Hyjal.

Demons travel through (and often live) in the Twisting Nether, which is sort of an adjacent dimension to ours. To get to Azeroth, they need portals opened, either by current demonic residents of Azeroth or mortal servants.

Ulduar / Razorscale - the harpoons are now bright florescent green with no texture. I don't remember them this way. Seems to be odd, but I can't find anything about them. Anyone know? Thanks.

This is usually the graphical effect that happens when an object's texture is missing. If it's happening just for you, you should probably repair your client; if it's happening for everybody, Blizzard needs to repair their client!

freshke33 asked:

What do you think about the "tap to faction" world bosses? I can just see some people circling around the sha and waiting till the raiding group has him around 10% then dismouting and tagging it. I see this new plan to be a little unfair, but I would love to hear your opinion and reasons behind it.

I think it's great. A lot of times we'll have a Sha group going and there'll be people who really wanted in, but we can't invite them because of space requirements. Them joining in wouldn't have done any harm. Now everyone can play and get a chance at loot. It's not like Sha is hard.

JustinOlomon asked:

Anyone else believe the green fire quest is going to tie into or hint at the next expansion dealing with a return to Outland or a Burning Legion invasion?

I think it's too early to say, but I also think this is just Blizzard following up on something players have been wanting for a long time. Then again, what I've been wanting for a long time is to go back into outer space...
