Blizzard at Comic Con New York
BlizzPlanet has a nice video of the Blizzard panel at the New York Comic Con event. While it mostly covers the new books and lore, we do learn a few things.
- Patch 5.1 will bring new Zandalari Troll models, as well as a new model for Vol'jin.
- Vol'jin will show up at a few points in Patch 5.1 and Patch 5.2.
- It is unlikely we will see Lorewalker objects added to old content, but we might see them added to new content
- UDON is going to release a book with the best Fan Art, see the full press release for details.
- Vol'jin, Shadows of the Horde will be released in April 2013. Chen Stormstout will be in the novel. Blizzplanet got a nice shot of some of the art.
