We're all social and stuff.

Zapwidget asked:

What will we get in WoD aside from garrisons? I ask because as near as I can piece togethers the entire expansion is going o be like timeless isle with garrisons. Sure, the plot seems, uhm, I guess I'll say interesting, but aside from garrisons, what are we getting that we wouldn't get in a content patch from any other expansion?

There's going to be a lot of dungeons, raids, major PvP changes, class changes, new pets and battles, etc... Blizzard has the methodology down pretty well for a new expansion, and this will continue. Check out my Warlords of Draenor guide for more information.

BCF_80 asked:

If I was stupid enough to consider going for "The Insane" title, is it better to start with the pirates or the goblin rep first? Obviously doing the goblins second would be good to be able to go back in their cities, but I am more concerned about speed.

Everyone that I know does the pirates first and then the goblins. Speed-wise it seems that everyone takes the same amount of time, more or less.

Khlit25 asked:

Do you think we will be able to purchase the level 90 boost at stores like GameStop, like we can already do with subscriptions and other services ?

No, I can't see why Blizzard would do this. I could see them offering a "Blizzard gold" service or something like that, and then being able to buy a service or a 90s upgrade with that. I also don't think you can buy other services, just game cards.

Oxxo asked:

In WOD we are getting the item squish, lower power, lower stats, throughout the game so do you think this will result in an economy squish as well, such as lower gold rewards for quest, lower amounts of mats for crafting and so on. And how long will our pots, leg armor and shoulder armor be useful, with the squish they might last a bit, unless restrictions are placed on them.

There is no economy squish. That really wouldn't be a possibility with the amount of gold that players have amassed. We already know that Garrisons are going to be a major gold sink, so there's every indication that the virtual inflation will continue.

As far as gear not be as useful in the long run, don't worry about it. The squish is all relative, remember. That means that if something is good for five levels now, it'll be good for five levels post-squish, too.

Edit: Apparently I was wrong about the gold sink! Mea culpa, continue discussing cats and what not.
