I'm sorry, but saying that HoT heroics are 'just right' in terms of difficulty is 100% wrong. These things are SEVERELY undertuned. I've topped dps as moderately geared (ilvl 380) tank and not wiped, while we had a lock doing sub 10k dps. Blizzard fails to understand that by nerfing content until its facerollable you engineer a playerbase that demands nerfs, and it turns into a vicious cycle. Instead, Blizzard needs to focus on communicating how to properly play your class and react to fight mechanics.Edit: Oh, and if blizz is dead set on making easy encounters, they should return to making every 5 man have a normal and heroic difficulty a la WotLK. The HoT heroics now should be normal, with more difficult versions actually being heroic.
Is it just me or does anyone else get the feeling that the fact that this is specifically a Night Elf and a Blood Elf is significant?I vote Blood Elves are becoming a neutral race.
Oh please, please, please let it be cross-faction RealID grouping. @_@ Plleeeeeease! :3
Looks like the mounts are tied into the new Scroll stuff.
The mounts are probably for the Scroll of Resurrection that Blizzard is revamping. The Scroll comes packed with a few new perks: a free upgrade to Cataclysm, a free transfer to your friend's server, and a free faction change to join your friend's team. Oh, and you may boost one of your characters to level 80. Just like that. What better way to bring people back to your game? Lowering the barrier to reentry for returning players will go a long way toward getting those people to check back in, especially if it means those players will get to see the other faction for the very first time. It could very well mean a brand new gaming experience for some of those returning players.
When will someone ask the uncomfortable question of "why the hell didn't you make an actually epic raid?"No Kara/BT/Sunwell/Ulduar/ICC this expansion and it's my least favorite part about it. I understand maybe having the majority of raids shorter than, say, twelve bosses, but there should be a raid out there for people who want epic raiding.
If someone wants a scroll email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ill send ya one
