    Jaina's eyes now look exactly the same as the ones from Arthas:

    Jaina. reminds me of the change that Arthas went through.

    And is the CE mount(+wings)?Dear lord, it is BLOODY HIDEOUS!Blizz, I am disappoint.

    Where is Jaina's cloak and wizard hood?

    I seriously doubt Blizzard are going to set Jaina forward when called out about the lack of good, developed female characters in the game telling us "she's going to get some love soon" and then have her flip out and turn evil. That would be a dick move bordering on comical.

    I'm down with the white hair and glowing eyes. Perhaps this is an evolutionary step for mages that we've never seen before because no spell-caster has ever been capable of it. Not Khadgar, not Antonidas, not even Medivh. Just Jaina. That would be one hell of a lore buff card for Blizzard to deal out to Jaina if true. What I'm not down with is the tattered robe being her new outfit but I'm pretty sure this will be a temporary model only used for the Theramore event after which she'll either put on a new robe or a different outfit entirely.

    Unfortunately, all signs point to Jaina having a mental break down after Theramore gets flattened by the Horde, resulting in the change in hair and eyes. Blizzard fails once again: instead of having Jaina rise up and rally her people and become stronger and more focused from this, she has to go crazy. Goddamnit. Female characters can't catch a damn break in this lore.

    "Kill Shot now does 300% weapon damage, rather than 85% weapon damage plus (45% of RAP + 512)."

    Evul Jaina means we get to kill her at last? Sweet flying spaghetti monster I hope so! Hey look that'll be another mount and pet to add to my collection, just hope the CE edition mount looks better than the ones shown on the Wiki.
    The Turnip things remind me of the Octonauts...

    It's a design choice. I personally love it, one of our strongest chracters is decimated by the horde in one fel swoop. Jaina is trying to do something for the good of Azeroth through acts of complete selflesness, hasn't done anything midly wrong and gets punished.

    Sure she goes crazy, but I have a feeling this is bigger than "Theremore goes down, Jaina goes crazy". I have feeling she will rise up and in a nice twist I'd kill to see her be the one to take down Garrosh, whether he's possed or whatever.

    Remember, mental breakdown doesn't = the end, I imagine she'll go all emo for a patch, and then come back in full force. Remember, she's a very powerfull mage and we've hardly seen her use her powers outside of Teleporting in and out of Varians awkward conversations, so it'd be cool to see her use everything at her disposal in full, unrelented force against Garrosh.

    Also, she looks even hotter in the new model, jus' sayin'.

    I can finally make sense of the DK changes, and I think they are pretty useful. The CD nerf might be making way to have the DPS GCD just be at 1 second. Also, can't wait to see Icy Talons across the board! I think it's awesome we'll be giving our "presence" to the raid again in full.

    Apart from her complexion being too pale, which could´ve worked for her head but not her hands and belly, I agree.

    Oh and, yeah, Flippable Table has just replaced heroic Maw of the Dragonlord at the top of my wanted-list.

    Someone pointed out in another forum that the Theramore event is a scenario. When the scenario ends, will Theramore still be standing as an alliance hub or will it be destroyed? If it is destroyed then it makes no sense for the scenario to be offered afterwards. I have noted on beta under the specific scenario list that there are 3 test scenarios and one is T(A) which I think might be Theramore (Alliance). Personally I hope it is a scenario at the end of Cata and that Mists of Pandaria will launch with Theramore after the Horde assault and it will never be offered as a scenario to queue for later.

    The Quilen being linked here are not the current versions. In the current build they got rid of the cat skeleton (thankfully) and are using the Winged Guardian skeleton, which is more similar to the worg skeleton they were using at first. Check out the thread on the Petopia forums for current pics and animations.

    You want her to "put on her robe and wizards hat"?

    Also related sidenote - first thing on my mind when I read "Legendary Axe" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h456P9RyTA8 (and sequel).

    Should pretty much confirm that the celestial dragon is a reward from a celestial faction and not the Collector Edition mount or a blizzard store item
