  • There is no way to invite other players to your garrison when offline. You can invite a whole 40 player raid when you are online though!
  • The Dark Iron will make a small appearance in WoD.
  • There aren't any major changes planned for the pet battle system, just additions of new pets, trainers, and buildings in your garrison.
  • After the new character models are all done, the team will look at adding more customizations to character models.
  • Wrathion played an important role in Pandaria, but won't make more than a short appearance in WoD.
  • Smart healing has a place, but it might be good to make them less smart. Most heals could just prefer people who are injured rather than at full health, rather than just picking the people at the lowest health.
  • The team wants to make it easier to find like minded players to play with, which is why we have advance notice on the raid size change.
  • Mythic would have taken more resources to maintain the 10 and 25 structures for the top 1% of players, so the decision to fix the size at 20 was made in order to focus more on raid design and less on balancing two sizes.
  • The tertiary stats may be limited to a certain slot, like speed only on boots. It will be rare enough that by the time you can farm them progression races will be over. They shouldn't have a big impact on progression races.
  • Heroic Warforged gear will still exist going forward.
  • WoD will have a legendary questline that is similar to the cape this time, but also another legendary that is more exclusive.
  • Garrisons are unique per character, so there will be some kind of way to make it faster for alts.
  • The Titans visited Draenor, but aren't around anymore, so we will only see a little bit more of the Titans in this expansion.
  • Having Best in Slot items currently feels like a checklist right now. In WoD you will get your loot, but you will also have a cooler version of the loot to go after when things are on farm.
  • Racial balance will be tuned again in WoD, trying to narrow the gap. Goblin and Worgen have better balanced racials than many other races right now.
  • 20 players will likely have ~5 healers in Mythic difficulty. Keeping mythic at a fixed size will allow for many more possibilities in making mechanics that don't have to scale to another raid size.
  • Adding dynamic content to the old world would be nice, but it isn't a good use of time right now.
  • Bonus rolls will continue in WoD. LFR bonus roll doesn't impact your Heroic bonus roll. You can't roll 15 times and win nothing anymore.
  • The team has talked about and put some effort into pet battles on mobile devices. It hasn't worked out well yet, but they will keep looking at doing it.
  • No servers for old expansions.
  • There isn't any official lore on Celestial Dragons, they just look cool.
  • The Yak reforge vendor will be replaced something else.
  • Secondary and tertiary stats will stay the same, but primary stats on armor will change for your spec. This system is still in development, so details will change before it is live.
  • People are working on a side project to update the old Warcraft games to run on modern versions of Windows.
  • When the Dark Portal turns Red and cuts you off from regular Outland, you might be able to go through Caverns of Time.
  • Mythic raid lockout is boss based, static id, nothing is changing from the current Heroic lockout system.
  • Eyes of the Beast was removed when trying to prune things from classes and the code for it got removed as well. Removing it was a mistake, but it would take some time to add support for it again.
  • The Horde will have a chance to go back and redefine itself, and come away from the end of Mists of Pandaria even stronger.
  • World PvP outside of the World PvP zone isn't going to be a huge focus, especially with how one sided most PvP realms are.
  • New hairstyles are coming with the new character models.
  • Transmog that doesn't require you to keep the item forever is on the list, but won't be ready for WoD launch.
  • The team is talking about scaling up the difficulty of the launch dungeons with each new tier of dungeons during the expansion so you don't have to run the two new ones over and over and get burnt out.
  • There are plans for Alleria and Turalyon, but not in WoD.
  • The panel ended 5 minutes early, but the Q&A points above are complete.

    They havn't gutted random matchmaking at all - I have no clue what you are talking about, You can still queue for Dungeons and LFR like you would in MoP, and now have the option to pug Flex/Normal modes.. If anything random matchmaking has increased

    Heroic Warforged gear will still exist going forward. <- Do not like
    The Titans visited Draenor, but aren't around anymore, so we will only see a little bit more of the Titans in this expansion. <- How many more expansions we gotta go through to interact with them?! :/
    No servers for old expansions. <- some of us still want it! -
    People are working on a side project to update the old Warcraft games to run on modern versions of Windows. <- Not a problem, but awesome anyway!

    Just few things i wanted to point out. I am sure they will make it as great experience as it has been thus far.

    whats really annoying is when someone asks a question someone asked 5mins ago, or a question the devs answered yesterday!

    Weirdly enough, no-one asked about flying in Draenor, I guess people had too much to worry about all the other changes. I would have though flying would have been one of the most common asked questions though.

    Do they not have source code history,

    i'd love to Librams back and be visual on the character! would be sweet!, even if they gave no stats and just dropped as cosmetic item, i don't even play a paladin and i'd love to see it.

    The questions asked were dumb or already answered. Why didn't anyone ask any questions we all have been itching for an answer?

    Quivers?

    Super Easy Low Level content?

    Cool Changes in new model armors?

    I feel like the QA didn't last long enough... Seriously, what the hell? Are the people going to Blizzcon completely out of the loop of what people want answered? Stupid...

    This is all

    The Titans visited Draenor, but aren't around anymore, so we will only see a little bit more of the Titans in this expansion.

    The Horde will have a chance to go back and redefine itself, and come away from the end of Mists of Pandaria even stronger.

    Completely hilarious how they expect classes to function with 1 set of secondary stats for 3-4 specs. I mean... these people are venturing into comically inept territory. I would bet anything that aspect of "spec modified gear" will absolutely change. At least for Tier.

    why, why nobody asked about hard casting and instant cc !!!

    I am not sure grom as a last boss was a joke though, the others were.
