Gems and enchants only have secondary stats in Warlords of Draenor. You won't be able to gem agility at all, for example.
If Magni Bronzebeard comes back, what will happen to the political power in Ironforge?
He's dead. He's probably not coming back. It's kind of like asking what would happen in England if King George VI came back. He's dead! He isn't coming back! Granted, Azeroth operates on comic book rules, so who knows who is actually dead or not. We're going to an alternate universe specifically to see dead people again. If Magni came back, I don't think political power would change other than maybe him becoming a player in the Council. I don't think he'd ever get complete control back, nor would he want it. Magni represents one clan. Dwarven society has moved past that. All major clans are represented. His own daughter has a place in the Council. He wanted her back to begin with; he wouldn't try to strip her of her authority.
So my computer is kind of crappy and doesn't handle the new models well, and I can't find the option to turn it off. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
You can find it under the Advanced category of your System options. There's an option listed as Show New Character Models. Untick that box to disable them.
Maybe it's been asked, and while I probably already know the answer, is that all there is to the prelaunch event? It seems pretty lackluster especially comparing it to the WotLK and even Cataclysm prelaunch events.
Yep, that's all there is. This time around, I feel it isn't so much an "event" as an in-game notification that there's an expansion coming. "Welcome to patch 6.0! By the way, the Dark Portal opened ... again."
Is hunters being unable to loot mobs if their pets killed them alone "working as intended"? It's not really that big a deal, but there's just something annoying about not being able to loot low-level dungeon mobs that Fluffy killed by Blink Striking them literally faster than a speeding bullet/arrow/crossbow bolt.
That's intended, yes. The player must contribute to a kill to qualify for loot or anything like that. If that weren't the case, you could, for example, just AFK somewhere with a pet on aggressive and reap the rewards. You wouldn't even need to be at your keyboard, just check back every few minutes to loot everything.
