The animation and effects look so lineage 2
What the heck, why do vanilla alpha mage spell effects look cooler than 2020 retail? We were robbed.
That's pretty sick....would love a "battle mage" class.
That outland in Deadmines still exists in Retail btw, its a great place to check out, but does require some iffy methods
They should have never removed that old engine that made the graphics worked differently. I love the light effect of the touch. It's not even really dark at night in-game.Now you need to drink a potion to make it look really dark. Why not make it an option in-game that players can pick?
High chance that whenever teldrassil grows back it WILL look like the artworks "Teldrassil is supposed to look like this but because of game engine limitations it had to be made as a Baoab."
Battle Mage idea looks so much fun haha.
Still better than BFA
I wish they would have connected Stormwind and Darnassus with the tram... and look player housing.
You can still hear Arthas killing his father in the throne room today.
That dungeon in SW is "The Vault" originally was suppose to house the worst of the worst spellcasters, its still in game, just can't access it, they kind of alluded to it in the Horrific vision of SW, with the mana devourer that circles the prison.It was suppose to come into BC but Violet Hold came in instead, then there was plans to have it in cata, when deathwing messes up the city, he was suppose to break part of the tower causing us to go in and "fix" the mess, but that got scrapped too.Maybe one day we will see it.You could also get to outlands by dueling someone on the Bottybay ship and fearing them just as they crossed the loading zone, and they would get feared into outlands lol
And judging by the casting they were also probably inspired by DBZ (the aura when they're powering up). Interesting footage.
Wish they retained the darkness of areas... instead of it all being drab grey nights with stars in the skybox...Maybe the devs live in urban areas saturated with light pollution and thinks that's what the nights look like... -.-;
In the WoW diaries (a really great read by the way and I hate reading) Staats says the UI went through numerous changes up until a month before launch. I love looking at the old Alpha videos and such. Fascinating stuff for us game nerds.
Wow those mage spells. Lots of flair but no output. :)
