Alcaz Island Scenario
As always, this is an early version of the area, previewed through unofficial means. This is absolutely not representative of the final version, it's just a preview.



Premade Monks Now Active
With tonight's beta invite wave premade monks are active once again!



WoWDB Pet Pages
Work continues at a steady pace on WoWDB, with the addition of more information for Pets. We now have dedicated pages for all of the Battle Pets and a list of all of the Battle Pet abilities.

Important - The Pet List only lists the companion pets fully implemented in the game files, we'll have to wait for future beta patches to get data on all the other pets. However, there's already a lot of Pet Abilities implemented, check them out!

The pages for individual abilities will show you which pets the attack is strong against, and which pets the attack is weak against. Each pet's page will show you which other pets it is resistant against and which pets it is most vulnerable to. We will continue to add features as the system is fully implemented in the beta.

We're starting to have a lot of background work done on WoWDB and you can expect more visible updates very soon (Including filters and anything to make browsing less painful). We also have a few surprises coming this week if everything goes really well.

PvP in Mists of Pandaria: 3v3 Arena
I have already commented in your Arena system needs to evolve thread and it was a very good read, so I will move onto your other points. About the “Roller Coaster” feel that you commented on, there will always be nerfs and buffs and that is because we want to achieve the best balance possible among the classes. However, we do our utmost to limit actual spell/ability changes that effect rotations to expansions only, and that is only if we feel it will greatly improve the class.

The new talent system should make constant changes less necessary too, especially with regard to forced respecs since the talents are now more utility-based. In my own personal opinion about changing classes because of a nerf, I feel that I will play what I enjoy the most and right now, as it has been in the past is my warrior. But because in some parts of arena he may struggle does not make me want to play it less.

Your portion about instant CC, healing and damage is very well structured and thought out, the same goes for your comments on self-healing and blanket silences. This is a great thread Rasen, that we can see you have dedicated a lot of time to writing and we hope to see more excellent feedback like this coming from everyone on the forums.

    There's two zones, one of which is a starting area. We're only on our second build of the beta. Very little is even implemented yet. Have some patience.

    Same problem with 3 copies left for monks, other premades and live characters. =(

    Guess that's what happens when 250k people try to copy characters.^^

    Lol scenarios are basically instant adventures from RIFT. Not saying thats a bad thing, but still blizz isn't doing too well in the originality department.

    Is it just me or do the tunnels under Alcaz look very high-quality? Something just makes me want to stare at them for a while...

    Me at the beginning: Ugh, more Twilight cultists?

    Me at the end: Oh, wow, that's one bad ass dungeon under Alcaz.

    The room at the end reminds me of a ring platform from Stargate. Ah, good times... before Syfy strangled SciFi and hid the body under the floorboards of a wrestling ring. You can still hear its wail when you accidentally hit the wrong number on your remote and land on Ghost Hunters.

    I don't think I've ever agreed more with something said in these comment sections....

    I wonder how many people will do this and not know what this area has been used for in the past. Like holding Wrynn hostage by Defias so many years ago before a silly gnome took over and was somehow involved in opening the gates of AQ.

    Pretty much my reaction as well. Although, I really can't wait for the Twilight's Hammer to go back to being ineffectual, easily dismissed comic relief. Having to take them seriously for an entire expansion felt weird.

    Alcaz Island had me genuinely spooked. Can't wait to see it for myself.

    WOW I remember Alcaz Island from a LONG time ago - I forgotten all about that area actually and happy to see that they FINALLY are doing something with that.

    I never got to visit Alcaz Island when Varian Wrynn was taking a vacation.

    Speaking of which, I need to go sight-see that place sometime.

    Interesting, like no massive comments on MoP content information in a while. Except for "XXXk keys sent out" threads. Sup?
