Thanks for showing the Glyphed ghost wolf. I do hope the glyph stays in, that recolouring looks FANTASTIC. I have been a bit iffy about the new wolf models, as their backs are... somewhat off, and their legs seem a mite short, but that white ghost wolf glyph sells the model for me.The new lightwell is quite lovely, and is what I imagine when I think of a Naaru spinning in circles. That mini Dark Portal is AMAZING and the CUTEST thing pretty much ever. I really hope it stays in! (And they make it so you run through, instead of clicking, but that's just nit picking.) Interesting that the colour is green, though it's a portal to the Alternate Dimension/Timeline. I wouldn't be against seeing two baby Dark Portals up there, one to our own timeline and one to the AD, differing colours of course. I like the Unleash Elements & Imbue changes; however, I do wonder about the visuals, as they're quite iconic. Moreover, if they're keeping the visuals, would there be a toggle? What would Enhance end up with? I know the Windfury MH and Fire OH differing visuals bother me quite horribly at the moment. It would be neat to see both visuals on both weapons for Enhance.Happy to see the Theorycrafting threads again this expansion, but I'm quite bothered that there's no General population Warlords Forum, for those not in Alpha, but with many questions, theories, and discussion to share.
Christ that Lightwell is amazing! And is it just me, or is there also a new casting animation for holy spells? (Not in the alpha, but I happened to notice a difference in the video)
Ah loved all of what you showed, both glyphed and non glyhped frost wolf, the lightwell is amazing and the Dark portal is the cutest. i thought you would end up in outland, due the greenish ish. Does seem out of place up there so i think its just alpha convenience.oh and the new blingeton 5000 reminds me of terminator, and i think that was what they were going for?
Eh... I prefer older Lightwell. Ghost Wolf has better textures/animation but it could do without the goofy teeth.
I think the new wolf model will be good for pets, but it looks kind of bland as a ghost. I especially like the current glyphed ghost wolf's segmented look, and would like to see something like that with the new wolf model. This just looks kind of flat compared to the old ones, even though the old ones are noticeably low-res.
Many thanks to that Hotted guy for showing off the talents. Although, I am sorry to see that warlock Cataclysm talent looks just as useless (compared to the other two) in usage as it did in description. From the way it looks, if anything really is standing still that long for the cast time to be worth it then all three specs can probably pull off more damage using that cast time to do other abilities. Still hoping they rethink fel flame's removal as well. Just cut the damage if they're so worried about movement dps :| Celestalon's response showed he unfortunately doesn't have much experience with this class. Oh sure, you can use dots while moving but unless it changes in WoD, those dots don't do "instant" damage. What is affliction supposed to do again non-pet summoned abilities (like totems) against both players and npcs with such abilities? Those spawned abilities are immune to dot debuffs. Seriously, cut its damage to remove it's usage in current raids, but leave the spell in xD
I assume the portal itself may stay for easier access, but I'm more than sure they'll change the location, it looks so out of place there one would think a random derp warlock opened that portal.and I find funny how the vid was basically 'look at this majestic new wolf, and his arctic spirit form......oh and then there's lightwell' (not sarcasm, it was actually funny, and both look awesome! the new lightwell looks majestic as f*ck)
FYI, there is a Druid tweet in hunter section
God I hope they update druid forms too. I'm going to hate going from my awesome new night elf to my boring kitty/bear/boomkin. Druids already missed the boat on tmog this expac :(A level 1 kitty standing next to a level 90 kitty and looking exactly the same is just wrong.WTB detailed customisation for animal forms and new skins for all models to match the next expac. <3
"EDIT: Resolve does affect percent-based heals (i.e. "heals you for 20% of your life" would be unaffected)."/confused. This is a contradiction or a typo. It can be one or the other. Or did I miss something?

Also Kitties and Bears do have up to date graphics like the recent races, so theres that. >.>
Here is the spell effect for the Mistweaver level 100 talent, Breath of the Serpent: http://youtu.be/5Th6TCuAJQc?t=9m10s
I hope they are going to keep the Earthliving HoT as a passive

Shamans get a more detailed and up to date shape shift than the original shape shift class? If they needed to be updated each expac then so be it... A 4 year old update is not recent!If you think the current kitty/bear forms are up to par with all these new iterations then there is something clearly wrong with your eyes. I mean moonkin is just awful.. it's one giant pixel and other forms are emotionless and bland.Also having feral and guardian specs completely miss the transmog boat is really unfair. There should be something for us to play with at max level. Customisation or something would welcomed by the druid community.
Playing a Shaman now, I was excited to hear that the ancient Ghost Wolf graphic was being updated. Then I saw it.Not only is the new model tiny, it looks more like a dog than a wolf. Ghost Terrier. :(
Neat. The wolf kept its dance. Gets a thumbs up from me.
I really like the new ghost wolf specially the glyph! Thanks for showing us this cool little things.I persoanally think that the "mini" dark portal will be used to get to the zone where you started your adventure in Draenor,as they did in Pandaria. Since Draenor isn't gonna have a race thus not having a representative they had to put the portal somewhere so I guess that was the best place they could think of.
