I'd really love "Winter is coming" like event.I'd hate a "Red Wedding" like scenario : i'd rather be alive in scenarios :)
The April's Fool day patch notes are always so funny. I remember the first ones I read. Only players with the panda cub pet could fight Onyxia and jumping while mounted would dismount you. LOL! Funny stuff.
It was almost believable until I saw the prices of the cosmetic items. As if Blizzard would sell anything for $4.99 and under, good one.
Chakra when the walls fell the next generation reference!
I would play this game.
I would even pay for that wrathful paladin one..
Thanks for all the nice comments! It was a huge team effort involving lots of Wowhead staff. Ashelia and I brainstormed the concepts and made the items, Aryu faked the data, and Lilith and Brian handled all the photoshopping.We really like holidays in WoW and wish there were more, so we used this as an opportunity to both make people laugh and dream up some things we'd actually like to see in the game! Whether it's a coincidence or not, several past April 1st pranks are quite similar to later in-game additions, like the Hearthstone tables in Vale and zone/instance-specific Cosmetic armor like the Dark Kor'kron set. I didn't really expect the huge reaction to Druid of the Party, this was one of the last things I came up with and was running low on creativity at that point. Glad everyone liked all the pranks again!Edit: to clarify things, we didn't come up with the patch notes, that was a prank designed by Blizzard which we linked to on battle.net and reposted here to play along with their prank. We'll be doing an April 1st roundup today with some neat things the community came up with in general.
You... are... so... cruel... on 1 minute i think that this is true... And i was happy for that! But you ruined my dreams =\\ no longer feeling happines
Oh dear, I was so mad when I saw that Blizzard shop screenshot. Thank heavens it's just an April Fools joke.
Good joke cause no other class other than warlocks deserve green fire. Its a big pain in the butt to get the book to start the questline. Let alone finishing that final boss off has been a test of patience and anger from dieing
I especially enjoyed the tweet from @Jer_seely about how the Blizz April Fool patch notes just cost us a raid tier! HAHA!He...he wasn't serious....right?...RIGHT?
$%^& me! I SERIOUSLY THOUGHT THIS WAS REAL!
Sooo .... many ...... Game of Thrones reference.
true, but it's no more believable than when Blizzard announced that they would base an entire expansion on the movie "Kung Fu Panda", yet they did.
And some of them were, like Pandaria, Pandaren race, and the Shado-Pan were announced to be added to Warcraft III as an April fool's joke in 2002. 9 or10 years later they built a whole expansion on that idea. So... You never know :)
Well aware of the date, you still got me in general. Some details were obvious jokes, like "Proving Ground rating of Gold will be required to post on the forums in Warlords of Draenor", but most seemed legit. Well played!
Warrior changes with Charge looks amazing (Yes I know it was April Fools, but still.)
Was so excited about the cosmetic spell changes... Then the truth dawned on me. How disappointing.
