IMO, Worgen should be horde and Goblins should be Alliance <3.
but be warned, you'll need the "Hot Weather Flying" skill to fly in the old world lolThe cool thing about re-rolling, the starting areas will be different. and i figure there's going to be a lot of goblins/worgens getting made.
The Path of the Titans progression, from what I've gathered, seems to me like the Master Level system introduced in Dark Age of Camelot with the Trials of Atlantis expansion, if anybody was a former player. It should be interesting to see what they do with it.
this raises a couple of questions for me.and is about timelines.let me elaborate.the timeline for this game was:clasic-wow(AKA 3-4 years ago) in this timeline is where all players start, they battle the old god c'tchun, ragnaros, nefarian, onyxia, and the other bad guys, in the end, they vanquish the necropolis Naxxramass and azeroth is saved.Burning Crusade timeline:(AKA 2-3 years ago), doom lord kazzak opened the dark portal, mortal races got inside, the alliance reunited with their lost brothers who came inside on the second war, the orcs reunited with their mag'har brothers, the draenei reunited with their broken cousins, and the blood-elves got boned by kael and his lie about "paradise".in the end, the mortal races vanquished outland of the villians that plaged it, destroyed tempest keep, cleansed the serpentsrhine, cleared the black temple, destroyed the tyranical leader of the ogres, and put an end to the fel orc corruption by slaying mannoroth, at the climax of the expantion, when kael prepared to unleash apocalipse on azeroth by summoning Kil'jaeden, he was stoped, the summoning prevented, azeroth was saved from the thrid comming of the legion.Wrath of the lich king timeline (1 year ago, till the present day): mortal races decided that arthas and the scourge had to be stopped, and they ventured to northrend to put an end to him, this after arthas did a 3-way attack on stormwind, ogrimar, and the Scarlet Enclave.a 3-way attack that was repelled on all fronts of course.all this blah-blah had to be written to set the basis of my main and principal question:they specifically stated taht the cataclysm won't be a phased event, new and old players alike WILL experience the cataclysm, regardless if u got the expantion or not (only the owners of the expantion will get to use the new races, or go to the new zones)so, what happens to new DK players? what happens when someone wanna create a new DK goblin or worgen? the events at the scarlet enclave happen BEFORE the cataclysm.what happens to new players? they start at the cataclysm timeline, only to travel to outland wich is based 3 years ago, and then to travel to northrend wich is based 1 year ago, and then get back to azeroth wich is again based on today:so U start in the present, travel to the past, only to get back to the present again?do they plan to change what happens in outland and northrend? (I mean, how can new players do epic quests like "Hero of the mag'har", or "battle for the undercity"? those take place BEFORE the cataclysm, were the horde still has thrall as their leader.this is messed up plp
I ^&*!ING CALLED IT!I TOLD YA! I -TOLD- YA IT WOULD FEGGIN' HAPPEN!
Downside: A ton of content we might be fond of will presumably be eradicated -- if they change old zones, that'll presumably remove some of the existing quests, etcetera?I'm not super happy about that.I do really like the idea of a new SECONDARY skill, because that eliminates the "which professions do we give up" question.
This better be some kind of sick joke D:If it isn't well, bye WoW :<
i'm getting the race transfer to worgen from blood elf. I will not fight along side those stinking goblins. They seem far to annyoing.
the all new Hogger...in life.as for the goblin/worgens, i wonder what classes they'll have...not too interested in the other new race/class combos.
i think the additions will be nice, but if they %^&* up thrall and say he is the new guardian and cairne is killed etc they are pushing it...
Heroic deadmines.... 'nuff said.
I hate to admit it... but... I got a boner when I heard about Heroic Shadowfang Keep.SFK is my all time favorite instance. <3Also <3 Worgens.
