Wonder if the blizzard employee (who also plays the game) gets his armor, mounts and weapons the easy way. Already made and easily delivered by game.Also, do the players who know who he is, do they treat him extra special unlike everyone else in their guild or out of it?Just a thought.Only if he's a GM; if he's not, then he earns it the same as the rest of us do.
Hey, I'm all for more reasons to revisit old content. I don't think many people have seen BT or Sunwell, and this just gives them more reason to do so.This. A lot of the old content gear looks totally different from the gear we're now getting from current dungeons and raids, and I for one really look forward to going back (although I could never let go of my old tier sets) and getting things I think look best. Looking forward to getting a few of the rarer models, aswell.And this "News Round Up" must have been one of the most amusing ones yet, Zarhym's "Guess What? Blizzard Plays Other Games" was absolutely hilarious. And they managed to answer a lot of questions while being funny. Well done, Blizzard.Anyway, I'm hyped as hell for 4.3 - what they've said so far has definitely peeked my interest. If they can do it anywhere near as epic as they say, I think we're in for some of the best stuff we've had yet.Granted, they like to give us visions of epicness.
Which in itself also doesn't work, that's basically short-changing everyone who was around to be able to raid old Naxxramas etc.If you cannot foresee the immense amount of complaining that is bound to come from the masses regarding the unavailable Dungeon Sets and Discontinued Tiers, I don't know what else to tell you.Blizzard themselves said they will try to find a solution for those items. I can guarantee the impacted player base that you claim to be short-changed is far, far, FAR out-numbered by those who never saw that content.not to mention that most people who did do those raids most likely didnt keep the sets due to bank shortage so in essence they would be short changing you and maybe 5 other people.... also just because you played the game before people does not mean you are better or work harder then people like myself and millions of others who started during the wrath boom, its the other side of the coin newer people feel like they are entitled to get old unavailable mounts and older people think they are somehow better just because they could afford to play/happened to start before others, i couldnt play wow if i wanted to back in vanilla-tbc eras i was in high school had no money my pc was crap and i hadn't really been exposed to mmorpgs at that point, now i dont think i should be able to get old titles or old epic mounts that people spent months working for however saying that we shouldnt be able to work towards getting a piece of gear because you and your five freinds who held on to those sets dont want to be shortchanged LOL get real bro, if they dont implement ways to acquire the old gear that is gone from the game now it will be because they dont feel its important or unique enough to waste resources on.
Why why oh WHY not Legenderies? i worked hard to get that blade.. 150 Geddon kills to get my last piece.. i understand that the proc has nothing to do with is since you get stats from the wep you transform and not the one you turn it into..Im not alone here.. i was so gutted when i heard Legenderies is out of this awsome option.. most ppl with Legenderies worked DAMN HARD to get them and DISERVE to get this option PERIOD.. cmon Blizz give the commited hard working players some love here. !and if your to worried that the Legenderies will be to common and easy to get.. lower the droprate .. though its low enough already there will still be needed alot of effort in 99% of the cases to get a Legendery drop !it will still be VERY rare .. and Legenderies will still keep its Legendary status for a looong time..Frustrated Thundrefury / Sulfuras Owner
Does anyone know if this will be available to starter edition users? I seriously hope they share the love on that one by at least letting us change our lowbie gear to stuff that lets us not stick out like a sore thumb and let us don things more fashionable. *Cough Haliscan Cough*
Oooh, is blizz paying tribute to calvin and hobbs? lol that's Calvins Transmogrifier Gun!

It might require more then the Starter Edition money cap to use.Plus since you can only use items you can equip as either the source or destination item, your selection will be extremely limited.
FISH SHIELD!THE MOB DEMANDS IT!
Well, I actually like that you have to own the items, it gives you a reason to go out and farm. Fortunately for me, I just needed Warmaul of Infused Light for my paladin, and Towering Mantle of the Huntfor my hunter. Everything else is cataclysm quest rewards or pvp gear.
I really don't like this. It takes away the coolness of having the original... it's just stupid imo.

So my comment would be are we goign to be able to mix and match say I like the look of Tier one shoulders but say Tier 6 chest or are we supposed to go with a whole set.I want to mix and match and still have my Tier 12 heroic stats. Just wondering

Just wonderingYes, you can choose whatever item you want, as long as A) Same armour type and B) You can use it and C) You need the original piece(aka T1) in your inventory before you can do the mogging.
Really cool but I think they should let legendary items, I mean those items are already and achievement for the tenacity that you need to end one, its really lame that a lot of people where able to hand shadowmourne or warglaives or hand of ragnaros and now those items are just to show the achievement.Blizzard plz I dont care if you let the legendary idea at beggining but it would be very nice of you if you let us to get those for transmogrification. PS: You should think on changing the name of the tool because its really hard to remember how to write it XD. Item customization is cooler I think.
I disagree with zarhym saying that the alliance is morally ambiguous and not a "good" faction. Having quested as alliance in burning crusade, wrath of the lich king, and cataclysm, and having read all the lore I can find on alliance, I can honestly say there has never once been a point where I went " wow, that was some shady screwed up stuff, I question the morals of this situation".While it is not completely good, because obviously there are shady people in the alliance, I can say from my few years of experience that the alliance is a "good" moral-wise faction. As per the darkmoon faire description:"Humans, night elves, dwarves, gnomes, draenei, and the savage worgen make up the illustrious Alliance. Proud and noble, courageous and wise, these races work together to preserve order in Azeroth. The Alliance is driven by honor and tradition. Its rulers are champions of justice, hope, knowledge, and faith. In a time when chaos and uncertainty reign, the Alliance remains steadfast in its determination to bring light to the darkest corners of the world."So having read his response, I honestly don't understand what zarhym is talking about. The most glaring part of his post is where, referring to both horde and alliance leaders, he says "time will tell if they actions of their leaders will be judged". This is because of the fact that, me having quested as alliance in BC(including the vanilla zones back then) wrath, and cataclysm, there has never been a point where a leader, who we alliance didn't out and kill for being a baddie, will have to be "judged" for their "actions".My apologies, I just have no idea what he is talking about, and the darkmoon faire alliance description above basically goes against the whole wow beginners guide description he was referring to. Not trying to start anything here, I just don't understand what he's talking about. Perhaps someone here could explain it better, as I may be misinterpreting him.

This leads to the deaths of an inocent elderly shaman, and a lot of kidnapped (and later devoured) civilians.That's something that made me go "wow that's some shady screwed up stuff".there's more where that came from btw, its not an isolated incident, there's more stuff that's just plain WRONG the alliance has done in the past.just going to briefly mention the ones I can think of the top of my head:The invasion of Alterac Valley by the stormpike dwarves (Completely unprovoked, and even their own brigadier generals admit that land belongs to the orcs, they just dont care.)The utter and complete extermination of every single troll in the shatterspear village. That's genocide in case you didn't took that class.The breaking of the peace treaty that the horde and alliance had signed after the war of the lich king (wich they broke when they attacked Honor Point BEFORE the cataclysm)And of course, who can forget taurajo?Edit 2: and about the last part of the leader's actions being judged, you missinterpreted it entirely.do you know what "time will tell" means? it means that FOR NOW, most leaders dont have to be judged by what they have done (exeptions are mostly Sylvannas, Varian and Garrosh, the other leaders are squeaky clean) but eventually depending of what they do in the future they may or may not have to face judgment for their actionsIn other words TIME WILL TELL if IN THE FUTURE the actions of these people will merit some form of judgment. For the time being however, one cannot simply point a finger at them and cast a judgment on them because while what they've done is harsh, they've had their reasons.Edit 3: and dont take the description of the darkmoon faire so seriously, they are after all embellishing for both factions. They dont exactly described the horde as a bunch of savage bloodthirsty maniacs who wanna set the world of fire either. They put up a good description for both factions. But they are morally ambigous, neither faction is "the good guys" just as neither is "the bad guys"After all, the alliance has had its heroic moments, and the horde does has its skeletons in their closet, just as much as the horde has had its times as the heroes, and the alliance has had its moments as tyrants
Ugg....nothing that isn't justifiable in some form I should've said. They ARE at war with the horde. The stormpike didn't "invade" alterac valley, some ironforge dwarf explorers went there to search for titan stuff, then the frostwolf orcs immediately attacked and murdered them, which started the war.The shatterspear allied with the horde and started trying to wipe out the new night elf town of lor'denal, so the night elves and their new worgen pals had no choice but to attack them into their village and wipe them out, it was them or the trolls.Taurajo? The alliance made a gap in their attack so that civilians could escape, and only killed those who tried to attack them, the majority escaped but ran into quilboar, not that the alliance tried to make this happen.As to the magnatuar and snobold thing, my apologies I have no idea what you're talking about. What I meant was....as a faction, the alliance has never been "evil" or done horrific things that were given the thumbs up by the rest of the faction that wasn't justifiable, like the shatterspear wipe-out. Which is why I am confused by zarhyms post. And zarhym is the very person who originally linked the darkmoon faire descriptions, so he's basically contradicting himself. I take the darkmoon faire descriptions seriously because they're very accurate compared to the wow beginners guide that zarhym was referring. By the large, the alliance can be described as a good alligned faction that is unfortunately plagued by bad apples that keep popping up everywhere in it. Like major samuelson. Who is now dead. Because he was a baddie. And had bad hair.
Not even gonna talka bout Taurajo, and let it be known that I disagree with the AV portion.
The stormpike didn't "invade" alterac valley, some ironforge dwarf explorers went there to search for titan stuff, then the frostwolf orcs immediately attacked and murdered them, which started the war.Orcs have lived there for nearly a century, Stormpike dwarves wanted to dig there, orcs said no. Rather than pick up and leave, they decided to try and take it by force.The shatterspear allied with the horde and started trying to wipe out the new night elf town of lor'denal, so the night elves and their new worgen pals had no choice but to attack them into their village and wipe them out, it was them or the trolls.that still dosen't justify genocide. Kill their armed forces= yes, wipe the whole town =no. A good guy would let the civilians live.Taurajo? The alliance made a gap in their attack so that civilians could escape, and only killed those who tried to attack them, the majority escaped but ran into quilboar, not that the alliance tried to make this happen."The majority"? this is where you lack of horde quests shows. The majority died. Only a handful survived, and even then it was a cowardly attack in the middle of the night. Against a town that was mostly a civilian town with a minimal military presence.As to the magnatuar and snobold thing, my apologies I have no idea what you're talking about.Then as I said, you weren't paying attention, or your talk of "having done all the alliance quests" is nothing more than hot air: go to borean tundra, and do the alliance quests and see for yourself.What I meant was....as a faction, the alliance has never been "evil" or done horrific things that were given the thumbs up by the rest of the faction that wasn't justifiableand Zaryhm never said the alliance was evil, he said it was morally ambiguous.Since you aparently dont know what ambigous means, I'll explain it to you.Neither goodnor badEasy aint it?If they were good guys, stuff like what they did in borean tundra wound't happen. but then if they were evil, letting the tauren civilians of taurajo have a chance to escape wouldn't had happen either. This is why they are morally ambiguous, because they aren't 100% good, nor 100% evil.
let it be known that I disagree with the AV portion.Disagree you may, but your own brigadier general (before those quests were removed once the BG tokens were gone) said in no uncertain terms that AV BELONGS to the orcs, but didn't cared anyways.
