Dagger in the Dark Scenario
Today we are taking a look at another one of the new scenarios in Patch 5.1, Dagger in the Dark, a Horde only scenario.


Heroic Terrace of Endless Spring Progression Update
Terrace of Endless Spring is close to being cleared, with the first three bosses already down by Blood Legion. Vodka is in second place with 2/4 defeated, and Exodus is in third place with 1/4.

Don't forget that the LFR version of Terrace of Endless Spring is now open! You can find guides for all of the bosses on Icy Veins.

Where is our unique anglers tabard, and where are our other water strider colors?
Anglers tabard is a bug. We'll fix. Not sure we ever intended to make other striders available. (Source)

Questing
Remove class specific quest rewards? When none of the items are an upgrade, I would always chose the one that sells for most
Okay, weapon costs still vary. We made all armor types the same cost. It used to be, you were dumb not to choose the plate one. (Source)

World
Isn't the fact that the fans want flying on silvermoon enough justification to do it? Will it ever get done or r u sayin never
Say you were the game director on WoW. Would you spend art time on Silvermoon or a new raid? Not saying there's a right answer. (Source)

Draenei are the SINGLE most neglected race in the entire game. Even Forest Song didn't get a single upgrade.
I don't know who is the "most neglected" but we have plans for Draenei. (Source)

Misc
Is it possible to make tab-targeting target the closest enemy in front of you instead of every totem, pet, critter and tree?
Gotten that request a lot lately. We'll look at it. Could also do a mod-tab or something.

Are the other members of SI:7 in Jade Forest dead? (ie, Amber Kearnen) Loved Amber.
I believe Amber survived.

Oh and where is my bat mount? Bats have been taxis forever and it's still not a mount. Hook a forsaken up!
We need a better looking bat model, but after that, for sure.

"We are concerned about how money will we still get from servers transfers" There, i fixed that for you.
Nah. It's better business to have the game endure a long time because players like it than to make a quick buck.

Can you talk about possible reasons why you would not allow a choice between old and new player models?
We might. That would be a good way to reduce the "looks great but not my guy" factor.

Speaking of which, what's your opinion on "datamining"? Is it a good thing or just something you're forced to live with?
Probably good overall. I wish players didn't accept it as truth. The miners usually caveat everything pretty well.

Did you ever expect so many guilds to make optional addons "mandatory" parts of joining/playing the game?
I would not have predicted that players would become so focused on efficiency. Not fun or improving themselves. Efficiency. (Source)

Will upgrading gear though valor points be added in 5.1? Or will it be added later?
The plan is 5.1. (Source)

Why don't you go with smaller and more consistent patches? It feels like you need to be able to monitor changes btr?
Informed players (like many of you) might prefer that, but for many players it feels like near constant class design churn.
Is there a problem with that honestly? The quicker its tuned, the faster balance approaches, its how it works
Believe it or not, a lot of players quit playing if we're in a state of always tuning classes, even if better balance is achieved. (Source)

Is there any chance of the Motes/Spirits of Harmony becoming BoA in the future?
Perhaps in a future patch. We like the way they are playing for now. (Source)

What is going on with revamped character models ,having a hard time finding a blue post on forums
We've said we're working on it, but it's a huge task with a lot of risk so it won't be anytime soon. (Source)

How about a search feature for the mount tab similar to non-combat pet tab, purdy please?
Yeah, we'll do one.

But arthas death is still a bit unresolved, whats up?
Unresolved? Dead as a doornail. (Source)
I think what he means by "unresolved" is the whole "where is his body"
I know - I was dodging. (Source)

Can you explain what "High King" really means? Does it mean Varian is above the other leaders, or something else?
Much like the "Warchief" of the Horde, the High King is trying to coordinate the actions of all the races in the Alliance.

Why can't I put my herbalism spade in my herb bag? My fishing rod goes in my fishing bag.
Great point! It has now been fixed for 5.1!

    Progression is a joke, US guild got 3/4 down before any EU guild even set foot inside. Funny who the US kids think they actually are the best guild now.

    Theramore tabard is a bug now?

    Great that they're fixing it instead of fucking over Alliance players again, but weren't just a couple weeks ago they were defending it as a good decision because it meant the tabard was still obtainable and it connected the neutral Anglers faction to Theramore?

    Paragon back at #1 on WoWProgress.com now - the two days lead they had over the US guilds on Will of the Emperor (after only 19 pulls!) is still counting - not to say that they won't get caught by the gap, though.

    The fuck is it with blizzard and botting, they ban people for botting in a single player game now?

    Edit: my original post incorrectly stated that Endless Spring was not open on LFR yet. It is actually available, but one must first complete the second half of Heart of Fear entitled Nightmare of Shek'zeer in order to unlock the endless spring in LFR.

    I just put out those price tags today. I was surprised at how cheap it is.

    It concerns me that:

    Is it possible to make tab-targeting target the closest enemy in front of you instead of every totem, pet, critter and tree?
    Gotten that request a lot lately. We'll look at it. Could also do a mod-tab or something.
    They don't seem to realise that there's an option to unkeybind "target nearest enemy" and re-keybind it to "target nearest enemy player" this stops you from tab targeting to totems, critters, pets...
