I do not understand why this event is so easy, I imagined something more complex and seem to be lvl 80 mobs by how much life they have.Hopefully this is not the as "expected" pre-event mop.
So the horde get this little toy, and the alliance gets a tabard (and a toy in one). Before you say the alliance looses a town the horde lost the southern barrens, and a town (Camp T).
Before you say the alliance looses a town the horde lost the southern barrens, and a town (Camp T).And as seen in Tides of War, the Horde takes back all of the Southern Barrens but Northwatch Hold(though they do destroy it at one point).
For a pre-expac event this was very underwhelming. Remember before WotLK released you had those ziggurats floating above all the major cities and everyone was turning into zombies. That was pretty cool because you felt like something was happening.
what aout sylvanas blowing up southshore? what about garrosh invading ashenvale? what about the goblins taking over azshara? now theramore gets blown up and you complain about camp tauraujo?
what about the goblins taking over azshara?And? Not like the Night Elves ever had any land in that area; just a large number of ruins conquered by the Naga already.
to that brown monstrosity called Aggra.I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like her. I felt like keeping her in that bubble during the Elemental Bonds: Desire event. I find her very aggravating.
It is stated in Twilight of the aspects that Dragons prefer to take on humanoid form for close contact. I've also read elsewhere, which I can not find again sadly, that doing so makes the mating process easier on both. Deathwing destroyed all of his consorts because he was violent and mad. Women in real life have been killed or hurt badly after being a victim to an insane maniac. Deathwing might have also liked to display his gruesome form during mating.I don't really care if you believe me, I know it to be true.I wouldn't be surprised if that's accurate... but, as you point out, it doesn't always work that way. Keristrasza was in dragon form, and it's all but stated that Malygos either raped her, or was planning to after torturing her to the breaking point.
The thing is:I've also read elsewhere, which I can not find again sadly, that doing so makes the mating process easier on both.I've never seen that anywhere in the Lore; especially as the time in War of the Ancients, very few of the Dragons take a humanoid form.
Not sure how TBC opening looked like. Have read that WotLK opening was somewhat "worldwide". Only witnessed Cataclysm opening, with funny questline, some bugged staying effects(Doomsday Messenger), as well as faction-related events(Lost Isles and Gnomeregan). Overall it felt quite epic - we saw that the next expansion is "coming".Of course, we won't see a rain of pandas or anything, and destruction of Theramore may play a great role in lore of MoP... But that's it? A 6-10 minute 3-person scenario? That will be replayable at 90? That doesn't look like an opening.Capital cities received pandaren NPCs - why not make something like Twilight Cult questline? To give idea about pandarens, monks...They delayed it for quite a while, to the point of stealth server restart. What for? There is nothing to see. Nothing to feel. You complete it over 10 minutes(everyone who waits in queue must be so lonely... even on dead realms), you get mini mana bomb - and that's it. Want some uncustom, poor-looking crappy items? Farm more. Want everlasting firework? No comment. I really envy people who can say themselves "NO", when prompted to farm.With an expansion of such magnitude, which can match the global reworking of Cataclysm and more, to have so "empty" opening feels wrong. Just wrong...
And only a 30+ minute wait to see it! Sweet! Thanks for this new scenario addition Blizz! Pfff guess I'll go back to inactivity til my stupidly bought annual pass expires so I can finally walk away from this game.
I was a bit disappointed in this pre-launch scenario. Its boring. And I have better gear than what I could "possibly" get as a reward. You can buy a higher level helm with justice points. The weapon possibly would be a nice upgrade for some who don't do regular raiding and have never won a weapon from looking for raid. But good luck getting once since very few players seem to be getting anything other than the fireworks. After getting the achievement (which will become a feat of strength for completing at level 85 once MoP comes out) and the tabard (alliance) or the bomb (horde) I really see no point in going back and doing it again. I understand this is setting up the changes in Theramore but I was really hoping they would have some sort of event like they did with other expansions instead of just this scenario.I didn't see the pre-BC event (if there was one) but the pre-wotlk zombie invasion was great. A lot of people had a lot of fun with that and we all got some really good gear out of it. The pre-cata city events were not that great but weren't horrible and people seemed to enjoy them for a little while. But this scenario thing is just BLAH. 10 mins, you're done, and no real incentive to go back. Really disappointing :( If you watch the horde video (above) even the narrator of the video kept saying over and over how disappointing the scenario is.
Theramores failOh cmon it's not that bad. I kind of want to do a premade run on Jaina. She hits hard but I think she's killable.
I haven't done the scenario yet, but I read the book and absolutely loved it. So I'm looking forward to it.
I haven't done the scenario yet, but I read the book and absolutely loved it. So I'm looking forward to it.Well to be honest Horde's feels a little like questing, though the cinematic at the end...
Remeber that if you want to resive the Feats of Streigth, Scenaturday you will have to do Theramore's Fall on Saturday.
Just did the Alliance version. I wish we'd gotten there before the bomb dropped, I wanted to be a part of it when it came down to the final minute and stuff. It was still cool to be there and it's pretty great to have a visualization of the book. Gonna do the Horde one now, wish me luck. :D
How does eliminating Theramore improve the game?Every one I know that played WoW has quit since Cata and I see why.Screw Blizz, I hope the 11 year olds they attract with kung fu Panda and Pokemon lose their allowances and can't pay to play.
jaina went x-men *cough*
Would have been nice if someone, ANYONE, in all of the hype about this scenario, had mentioned...***Minimum ilevel of 353 in order to que for this scenario.***So apparently, the scenario is only open to ppl that have been doing end-game raiding for a long while.I just wrapped up Deepholm a couple days ago, and my ilvl is nowhere near that, barely breaking 300.
