Beginning Thursday, August 14 at 10:00 a.m. PDT, through Tuesday, August 26 at 9:00 a.m. PDT, weā€™ll be applying the Gaze of the Black Prince buff which will increase the reputation gained with the Black Prince by 100%. It will also increase the chance of obtaining items from his foes needed as a part of the Legendary Cloak quest line including: the Secrets of the Empire, Sigil of Wisdom, Sigil of Power, or Titan Runestones.
To learn more about the Legendary Cloak quest line, check out our previous blog posts: I am Legendary and The Time Has Come: Legendary Quest Line.
I will have my own Chromie!
250 mounts for this ugly old thing...it would be better to put this on normal drop and give a more gratifing reward after so many mounts afterall. Not much fantasy within developpers...
Oh my God that cinematic teaser looks so sexy!
...You mean what a worgen already is?
The sprint tooltip made me laugh. Out loud. In my cubicle. In a very quiet office...
GameDev : " Orcs aren't just mindless savages! They were once peaceful shamanistic people! Much more to orcs than just savage brutes! See look at all of the unique facial expressions we gave them! Not ALL of the eyes are red, and one of them only looks badly constipated instead of downright berserkish..."Similar could be said of some of the others also. I am thrilled with most of the updates, and I really think the textures and detail are amazing. But you really have to struggle to see the differences between some of the "options". I expected more than a 6 degreee angle difference at the corner of the mouth between two different faces.
They finally put in the green drake I've wanted for years, and I need even more mounts for it T_TGuess I better start doing more mount runs...
Some of the other rewards are more unique then others, though. For example, horde players can use Red Dragonhawk, whereas the only mount model that matches the Red Dragonhawk (recolor-wise) is Amani Dragonhawk. Sunreaver Dragonhawk actually has a slightly different model then the first 2 I mentioned. Finally, the 200 mount reward for horde is Armored Red Dragonhawk, which is completely unique when not counting the Alliance counterpart.I can see why some people are excited to get the Emerald Drake, as that will complete their "Vanilla Drake Model" mount collection, but honestly, I would have to agree with the people on here that are not looking forward to "just a recolor". In my opinion, I want to ride one of these : Fungal Whale (concept art). I mean, for collecting all those 250 mounts, I kind of want something that will make people be extremely jealous and wish they had collected mounts, too.Edit 1: Actually, I have a suggestion for "rewarding" players with the Emerald Drake. Remember back in the day, when Heroic Old Stratholme gave the Bronze Drake for killing the infinite flight dragon boss fast enough? Well, there have been images/videos released for the new dungeon called "Everbloom". Everbloom is a very nature-rich environment, and there is a portal relating to the dungeon near Stormwind. That portal looks like the Emerald Dream portal. Emerald Dream portal, and Emerald Drake? See the similarity?TL:DR = I believe the Emerald Drake should drop from Heroic Everbloom by completing the dungeon within a certain period of time, just like the Heroic Old Stratholme and the Bronze Drake. Thoughts on this?
i still think the human faces look way to much alike! hope it's not final Version :)
*POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT*Seems like the picture from the cinematic is the mountain where they drank of Magtheridon's blood, but this is alternative reality and reading the Comic they released, Garrosh wants to fight Maghteridon it seems.*HYPE*!
wooot finally a green drake mount and the teaser pic for the cinematic is awesome! won't be long now till CGI is so good we'll be mistaking it for real life
A lot of whining yet again about mounts you get for free by gathering mounts. Dont like it? Dont get it. Dont use it. Simple as that. How many other mounts did you simply grab so you could have a larger mount count and will never use again? So now when one is handed to you on a silver platter you moan its not special enough for your oh so refined tastes.
oh it's just a green version of the 100 mount one i thought it be a little different
yay... another goddamn recolor...thanks blizzard.
I'd love to see a flying ground mount style mount for the 250 cheevo. Something like the Headless Horseman or the Windsteed. Something that looks great on the ground, but still has the utility of a flying mount for areas we can still fly.Alternatively, a ground mount. Or at least a Proto-Drake with their adorable derpy running animation, looks like they're holding their wings up going 'Oh god, oh god, the ground is dirty, it's dirty don't touch it eww' whenever the run.
So Night Elf Druids can now become Worgen?
Missed opportunity to introduce werewolf model for worgen. Imagine most of the body would have stayed the same, with a half day or so involved in putting a wolfs head on the model.Anyone else think that the worgen and night elf models are reversed? The panther fits nicely for NE, but so would the snow leopard. Just do not get snow leopard for the worgen though.
I've been waiting for so long for the Emerald Drake. I'm excited for that. But I wish they had updated the model at least... I mean, really gave it some fine-tuning and made it look better. A character with the updated model would look good riding on an updated drake skin, not one of the old ones.But you know Blizz. They're lazy.
