    What's up with Thrall? Is it an Orcish tradition to wear your shoulderpads on your wrists?

    Thank god, I thought I was the only one with this problem; and I've tried viewing in Chrome, Firefox, and *shudder* ...IE.

    Can someone please snatch the Thrall image and post it somewhere like imgur? And maybe possibly convert it to a PNG or something while you're at it?

    Yeah I get the same error... from what I can tell it's very close to the concept art from Blizzcon (shaman robe with Doomhammer armor underneath) and I approve!

    Wouldn't the new Velen model also be a preview to the new Draenei model?

    On the new model the beard almost looks like it's infused with his shirt. Is it just the angle we're looking at?
    I wasn't talking about liking or not, though, just comparing the two

    Holy Beard Infusion. I like it.
    Seriously though, if the playable versions are anywhere close to Velen, my alliance death knight will be happy.

    Now why cant we have thralls model for Horde orcs??? This is BS

    Those models are looking so sweet! I love how they're updating everything to look better now.

    Only thing is, I wish Grom would look more like he did in WC3. Leaner and with a straight back

    Finally, someone with with some sense. This version of Grom saddens me :/

    Here's to hoping that Grom and Durotan will more closesly resemble the models shown in WoD announcement trailer sometime in the future and that these models are just placeholders with the accessories attached.

    Liking what I'm seeing so far though, Velen in particular.

    Looks like Thrall is rockin Doomhammer's Armor for the first time since the end of Wrath, very interesting. Also, new draenei model on Velen looks awesome!

    Velen looks awesome. Even though, well, you know.
    Dungeon & zone maps look very well done, Glad to see they blend right into to existing maps - not that they shouldn't, of course.
    Farahlon already has finished textures on it. Coming in 6.1?
    Gorgrond looks simply amazing, as do the Spires.
    This expac is shaping up to be pretty gorgeous.

    I'd like to believe that there are giant, 400 foot long letters on the ground saying "SPIRES OF ARRA" on the atual map right now.
