So... I finally collected all of my Secrets of the Empire, did the scenario with Wrathion, and now he wants me to stick this stupid spear into the side of a world raid boss on the deserted Isle of Thunder. Are there any possible ways for a Druid to solo this part of the quest, or do I just have to hope that somehow, I'll be able to find enough people on Ravenholdt who want to bother with Nalak again?
As many mentioned in the comments, you don't have to kill Nalak, so either get a friend or two (I had help from several guildies including a friendly warlock and resto druid) to keep Nalak aggro'd while you throw the spear, or try any trick that either drops aggro or gets Nalak to aggro on someone else while you kite the add around until you get the quest completion. A druid should be able to do it, but it may take you a few wipes.revnah asks:
I hear you on the knees and other bones. Having them poke through everything like that is weird to me - I guess it's part of the undead curse, that even magical metal armor just rots in selected places on them, but it seems weird to me. Especially since death knights, who are technically also
undead, don't have that problem but forsaken ones do, which I guess makes sense, but shouldn't they have even bigger
holes, as they're double-dipped in death?evoxpisces asks:
QftQ: So let's say there is no new class next expansion, no new races, and no 4th specs. What do you think Blizzard could offer us that would be game changing or a major addition to really sell the next expansion? A new continent, new raids, and new dungeons alone are not enough in my opinion.
Since you asked, I'm now free to blue sky my butt off, so here's a few ideas:
- Multi-classing - you could do this in all sorts of ways. You could allow your multi-class toon to be say, a fury warrior and a holy paladin, switch between the two the way we switch between specs now. You could let people select a second class as they level and have, as an example, all the abilities of a level 45 hunter and a level 45 rogue. There's plenty of other ways you could work it in, those are just two options.
- All races get all classes - Tauren rogues! Blood elf druids! Pandaren paladins!
- Sub-races, like I mentioned before - draenei could play as broken, tauren could be taunka or yaungol (or even Grimtotems with the face paint), dwarves as dark irons, blood elves with the high elf eye color, orcs as fel orcs.
- Path of the Titans allowing for customization of abilities in a whole new way. Imagine if you could have Golganneth's thunder infuse you, adding electrical damage to all your attacks or growing in size and strength visibly when you take damage.
- The dance studio. People still ask about that.
- New profession benefits that allow players to customize their gear, like allowing inscription to make armor dyes, enchanting to make cosmetic auras, blacksmithing creating gold etching, etc etc. This would be accompanied by a general profession overhaul that allowed more kinds of crafting options, like a blacksmith or engineer dismantling an appropriate item for materials used to make new ones.
- New item categories, like Diablo III's mighty weapons, polearms for one hand use, maybe even magical tattoos.
- New character models.
- Way way more freaking prehistoric critters. A gorgonopsid mount? I mean come on! Who wouldn't want to ride a gorgonopsid?
That would be the only mount I ever rode.
