  • VO_DS_THRALL_DWBATTLE_03 - Don't give up! We're counting on you to push Deathwing back.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_IRIS_01 - Heroes! This burden falls to you, once again.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_IRIS_02 - You must protect us from Deathwing's forces while we imbue the Dragon Soul with the power of the aspects.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_IRIS_03 - Speak to me when you are ready to begin.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_MAELSTROMSLAY_01 - It is done. At last, the destroyer has met his end. Now, we can begin to heal our world.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_MAELSTROM_01 - Strike now, heroes! Only you can give us our opening.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_MAELSTROM_02 - Avenge the fallen! Continue the fight!
  • VO_DS_THRALL_PREHAGARA_01 - It's no use. The power of the Dragon Soul is too great. I cannot wield it safely. The raging forces within it may be the doom of us all.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_PREHAGARA_02 - Yes, I see. We can finally turn Deathwing's own power back against him.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_PREHAGARA_04 - We have no choice. We must have faith in our allies.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_ULTRAXION_01 - Strength of the earth, hear my call! Shield them in this dark hour, the last defenders of Azeroth.
  • VO_DS_THRALL_ULTRAXIONVICTORY_01 - Taretha, Cairne, Aggra. I will not fail you. I will not fail this world!

  • VO_DS_HAGARA_ADDS_01 - Heh, even with the aspect of time on your side, you stumble foolishly into a trap.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_ADDS_02 - Don't preen just yet, little pups. We'll cleanse this world of your kind.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_ADDS_03 - Heh, you'll not leave this place alive!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_ADDS_04 - Not one of you will live to see the final Cataclysm. Finish them!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_AGGRO_01 - You cross the storm binder. I'll slaughter you all!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CIRCUIT_01 - What are you doing?!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CIRCUIT_02 - You're toying with death!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CIRCUIT_03 - You think you can play with my lightning?
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CIRCUIT_04 - Impossible! (scream)
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CIRCUIT_05 - No! More lightning!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CIRCUIT_06 - Enough of your games! You won't live to do it again.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CIRCUIT_07 - I'll finish you now, pups!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CRYSTALDEAD_01 - The time I spent binding that, wasted!

  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CRYSTALDEAD_07 - The one remaining is still enough to finish you!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_CRYSTALHIT_01 - Get away from that, mongrel.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_DEATH_01 - Cowards! You pack of weakling dogs.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_FROSTRAY_01 - You face more than my axes this close.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_FROSTRAY_02 - See what becomes of those who stand before me.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_FROSTRAY_03 - Feel a chill up your spine.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_GLACIER_01 - You can't outrun the storm.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_GLACIER_02 - Die beneath the ice.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_ICETOMB_01 - Stay, pup!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_ICETOMB_02 - Hold still!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_INTRO_01 - Swagger all you like. You pups don't stand a chance. Flee now, while you can.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_LIGHTNING_01 - Suffer the storm's wrath!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_LIGHTNING_02 - Thunder and lightning dance at my call!
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_SLAY_01 - You should've run, dog.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_SLAY_02 - (blank)
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_SLAY_03 - Damn pup.
  • VO_DS_HAGARA_SLAY_04 - A waste of my time.

Well of Eternity
HighBorne Mage
  • VO_WOE_HIGHBORNE02_EVENT_01 - I pray that the light of a thousand moons will grant me this honor.
  • VO_WOE_HIGHBORNE02_EVENT_02 - Yes, light of lights! My life is yours.
  • VO_WOE_HIGHBORNE02_EVENT_03 - The flower of life calls upon me! I will not fail you, my queen.
  • VO_WOE_HIGHBORNE03_EVENT_01 - I pray that the light of a thousand moons will grant me this honor.
  • VO_WOE_HIGHBORNE03_EVENT_02 - Yes, light of lights! My life is yours.
  • VO_WOE_HIGHBORNE03_EVENT_03 - The flower of life calls upon me! I will not fail you, my queen.

  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_BOSSCLOAK_01 - Return to the shadows!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_BOSSENTER_01 - Nothing will stop me. Not even you, demon.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_BOSSPRECOMBAT_01 - Another demon ready to be slaughtered.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_BOSSVICTORY_01 - The hunter became the prey.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_BOSSVICTORY_02 - You did well, but for now I must continue alone. Good hunting.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_BREAKOUT_01 - Your magic is pathetic. Let me show you mine.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_CLOAK_01 - We now hide in shadows, hidden from our enemy.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_COMBAT_01 - We're leaving; stay close.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_COMBAT_02 - My blades hunger!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_COMBAT_03 - This won't hurt a bit.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_COMBAT_04 - Death to the legion!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_CONCLUSION_01 - The artifact!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_CONCLUSION_02 - Brother, a timely arrival.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_CONCLUSION_03 - Aye, it's been twisted and turned by too many spells. The fuss we, especially you, made with the portal was too much. The same spell that sent the Burning Legion into their foul realm now works on the well. It's devouring itself and taking its surroundings with it. Fascinating, isn't it?
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_CONCLUSION_04 - If you've a way out of here, we should probably use it. I tried casting myself and Tyrande out of here, but the well is too much in flux.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_DISTRACT_01 - I will hold them back so we can get past. Be ready!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_DISTRACTEND_01 - My magic is fading. I'm going through!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_01 - Come with me if you'd like to live long enough to see me save this world.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_02 - So many demons, not enough time.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_03 - They will get what they deserve in due time.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_04 - I've seen a single guardian demon slaughter a hundred elves. Tread lightly.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_05 - They come endlessly from the palace.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_06 - The stench of sulfur and brimstone. These portals are as foul as the demons themselves.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_07 - Cut this one down from the shadows.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_08 - Let us shut down this final portal and finish this.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_09 - The demons should all be leaving. We will be at the palace in no time.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_10 - The demons are no longer pouring from the palace. We can move ahead.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_ESCORT_11 - Too easy!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_GREETINGIDLE_01 - Explain your presence.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_GREETINGIDLE_02 - Talk with me now.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_GREETINGIDLE_03 - Are you here to help?
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_GREETING_01 - Over here, in the shadows!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_GREETING_02 - I think we stand a better chance fighting alongside one another.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_IDLE_01 - Attack. I don't like to be kept waiting.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_IDLE_02 - I'll let you have the first kill. Don't make me regret that.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_IDLE_03 - Patience is not one of my virtues.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_01 - Can you close the portal, brother?
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_02 - Very well, we shall break it for you.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_03 - Let them come.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_04 - There are so many of them!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_05 - Weak, pitiful creatures. Hardly worth of being called a legion.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_06 - Oh, this will be fun!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_07 - Wait, I have an idea.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_08 - What our people could not
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_09 - Yes, yes! I can feel the raw power of the Well of Eternity! It is time to end this charade!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_10 - They are not what they appear to be! Strike in an area; it is the only way to uncover the real ones!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_11 - Handle Varo'then. Mannoroth is mine!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_14 - The sword has piereced his infernal armor! Strike him down!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_15 - You are not the sole wielder of Sargeras's power, Mannoroth. Behold!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_16 - I will be the savior of our people! I will fulfill my destiny!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_MANNOROTH_18 - He is still connected to the well somehow. Focus your attacks on Mannoroth. We must disrupt his concentration!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_PRECOMBAT_01-01 - They stand unaware that their deaths are moments away.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_PRECOMBAT_01 - Waiting to attack.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_RECOVERY_01 - My strength returns!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_WAITING_01 - Destroy the crystal so we can move on.
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_WAITING_02 - Smash the crystal. We need to move!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_WAITING_03 - Destroy the portal energy focus!
  • VO_WOE_ILLIDAN_WAITING_04 - Shut down the portal, and we will continue.

Hour of Twilight
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_01 - Heroes, we have the dragon soul. The Aspects await us within Wyrmrest. Hurry, come with me.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_02 - How did they find us? Ready your weapons! We've got to get out of this canyon.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_03 - What magic is this?
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_04 - Look out!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_05 - Hurry! We must keep moving.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_06 - Another ambush. Watch your back!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_07 - Take a moment to catch your breath before we move on.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_08 - Show yourself!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_09 - We're surrounded. Dispatch the ascended while I keep the ambushers at bay.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_10 - Keep fighting!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_11 - More reinforcements. Watch your back!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_12 - You've almost got him! Ag'noka lok'tar. Now we finish this.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ARCURION_13 - We've been discovered. I know you're tired, but we cannot keep the Aspects waiting.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_01 - Beware, enemies approach!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_02 - Let none stand in our way!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_03 - The Twilight's Hammer returns!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_04 - Let them come!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_05 - Alexstrasza's drakes should meet us here.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_06 - Up there, above us!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_07 - An assassin. Quickly! Ready yourselves for battle!
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_08 - I haven't come this far to be stopped by the likes of you.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_09 - Well done. Let's see to our friend.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_ASIRA_10 - The rest of the drakes should be here shortly. I'll fly on ahead; catch up when you can.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_BENEDICTUS_01 - I will not, Archbishop. It will never be yours.
  • VO_HOT_THRALL_BENEDICTUS_02 - You were a figurehead of the Light, Benedictus. How could you betray your own people?

Important - Don't miss the Raid Finder Loot Rules Update posted earlier today!

MMO-Champion T-Shirts now available from J!NX
Curse and J!NX have teamed up to bring you what some people have been requestiong for a while: MMO-Champion T-Shirts!

The T-shirt is available in a basic tee, which has a boxy fit and is available in more sizes. We are also offering a premium shirt, which is made of softer cotton and has a slimmer fit. More designs/colors might be available in the future depending on the success of the operation.

I would also like to mention that it is scientifically proven that people wearing MMO-Champion T-Shirts are 137% more likely to end up in awkward pictures on the front page if they wear them during the Blizzcon.

Patch 4.3 - Chromatic Dragon Pet
A "ChromaticDragonPet" model was added to the PTR with the latest build, it looks pretty cool for the moment but it might be a work in progress. It's also incredibly big for a companion pet, I'm not sure if it's because the model was just implemented or if it's intended, wait & see!

Fang of The Fathers - Legendary Daggers Questline/Events Spoilers Alert
It's time for another legendary daggers related preview! The latest patch added a lot of sound files linked to the quest and the model of Wrathion, the Black Prince (Wrathion @ Wowpedia)

  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_COMPLETE3_01 - Indeed, my prince. Hidden in plain sight.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_COMPLETE4_01 - Don't trust this one, your highness. Disguises, lies, flawless assassinations. No one is that good.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE1_01 - Your highness, we caught this beast snooping around the caves just outside the compound.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE1_02 - Shall we execute him, my prince?
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE1_03 - Yes, sir.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE1_04 - Your first target is here, in the ruins of Gilneas. I've lost some of my best men already. Let's see if you can fare any better.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE1_05 - If he succeeds in looting the whole of Gilneas, there is no telling where he'll hide next. Now is the time to strike.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE2_01 - We've just located her here, in the caverns beneath Karazhan. (Laughs) Fearful for her life, she is researching arcane secrets buried beneath the foundation.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE2_02 - She surrounded herself with a small army of deranged dragon cultists. They may not be right in the head, but they're well armed and dangerous.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE3_01 - This one? Mingle with the arch-mages of Dalaran? Hah, I'd pay to see that.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE4_01 - My prince, we should leave this place in case they come back to finish the job!
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE4_02 - Your highness! I have never tried to conceal what I am from you.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE4_03 - That is not true.
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE4_04 - No, no, I am in control of the voices! They're here to help me!
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE4_05 - Kill.. they want me to kill you now! Why did you have to go and anger them?!
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE4_06 - You have proven too difficult to control!
  • VO_QUEST_43_FAHRAD_SCENE4_07 - (Death scream.)

  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_CUTSCENE_01 - I'm not afraid of you! Wait... who are you?
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_CUTSCENE_02 - But.. but.. Deathwing's minions may have you killed!
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_CUTSCENE_03 - (screams)
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT01 - Let's move out, friend. There's no time to lose.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT02 - Aurastrasza is understandably upset. Under her care was the one black dragon egg that we believe was free of the taint of Deathwing's corruption.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT03 - And it was stolen away from us by thieves in the night.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT04 - You found for us our only lead. The rogues from Ravenholdt are behind this!
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT05 - Ravenholdt; it just doesn't make sense! A mongrel band of petty thieves? How did they even know about the egg?
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT06 - We'll get to the bottom of this. Someone with your skills is exactly what we need.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT07 - What's the expression? To catch a thief, they say? Hmm?
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT08 - Look at this devastation. These foothills have never recovered from the campaigns of the second and third wars.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT09 - Ruins and debris litter the landscape, and I consider the thieves and assassins of Ravenholdt to be part of that debris.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT10 - Without a state, without a cause.. What drives them, do you wonder?
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT11 - And what posessed them to strike out against the red dragonflight? Madness. We must learn more!
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT12 - We're almost to Ravenholdt manor.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT13 - If they have the egg, it's too dangerous to risk an all out assault. You'll need to sneak in there, find out what they're up to, and retrieve the egg at any cost.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_FLIGHT14 - Quiet now. We'll form up a plan within this cave.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_Greeting01 - Let us spring into action.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_Greeting02 - Hello friend.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_Greeting03 - Any news?
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_Greeting04 - What do you have for me?
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH01 - Stay on the ground and stay hidden. I'll port you back here if you get into any trouble.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH02 - Don't forget to use your stealth!
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH03 - That's it, you've got this. Keep it up.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH04 - Careful. The front door is too heavily guarded. Hmm. Circle around the back of the manor and maybe we can find another way in.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH05 - Where are you going? The manor is in the other direction!
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH06 - Hmm, it doesn't look like there's anything over here. Try circling around to the back of the manor.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH07 - Hah, there are no guards back here. Maybe you can find a way up onto the roof.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH08 - Nice work. Is there a window up there? Look around.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH09 - You did it; you're in! Now, where would they be keeping the egg? Some place dark, I would imagine. Be careful!
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH_FAIL01 - I've got you! That was close.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH_FAIL02 - You need to be careful! They're on full alert.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH_FAIL03 - Well, that got ugly. You're lucky I'm here.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH_FAIL04 - You weren't trying to pick their pockets, were you?
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH_FAIL05 - Gotcha! Let's try that again.
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH_FAIL06 - Are you crazy? They'll see you if you go flying around in there!
  • VO_QUEST_43_MOSTRASZ_STEALTH_FAIL07 - You can't fly here! You'll be spotted for sure!

  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_COMPLETE1_01 - Excellent work, friend. You've proven that a single skilled assassin can strike a decisive blow where a whole army may fail.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_COMPLETE1_02 - If you wish to continue our work, we will need some additional supplies.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_COMPLETE2_01 - Incredible. Few assassins would be clever enough to infiltrate Nalice's wards and use her own magic against her.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_COMPLETE2_02 - Perhaps. For that reason, we will need to gather more supplies.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_COMPLETE3_01 - Dalaran? He's been hidden there this whole time.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_COMPLETE4_01 - You slew him right in the purple parlor? Incredible, simply incredible!
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_COMPLETE4_02 - There's no need to worry, Fahrad. This next mission is quite likely suicide.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_FINAL_QUEST_01 - Don't underestimate my father. Even if you were to crush his body, the core of his madness and rage will still struggle to destroy you.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_FINAL_QUEST_02 - He will not be defeated until he is utterly annihilated.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_FINAL_QUEST_03 - I wish I could help, but my father is the one dragon I fear.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_FINAL_QUEST_04 - Best of luck, rogue. Whatever the outcome, you are truly a champion.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_01 - That's right, mortal. The prize you seek no longer sleeps within a shell. Here I am, in the flesh.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_02 - I'm not some trophy for a red dragon's mantlepiece, and I'm never going back.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_03 - Don't look so surprised. We dragons are conscious, even within our shells. As I grew, I could hear the plotting and scheming. I was to be born a prisoner.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_04 - But I'm one of a kind. A black dragon, raised free from the taint of my father's corruption. And that's how I intend to stay -- free.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_05 - Somehow, you managed to elude all of my guards. You slipped in here like a ghost. That makes you valuable to me. Let's talk.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_06 - You don't recognize your former prisoner?
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_07 - No, I want him to deliver a message to the red dragonflight.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_08 - Tell them that I am free of my father's madness, and I will be free of them as well. I am to be left alone. This will be my first and only warning.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_09 - Deathwing's minions should be afraid of me. Get him out of here!
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_10 - And Fahrad?
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_11 - Break his legs.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_12 - Now then, my new friend. We have much to talk about.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_13 - As you know, black dragons frequently disguise themselves as humanoids in order to tamper with mortal affairs.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_14 - While the house of my mad father collapses around him, the few remaining black dragons have gone into hiding.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_15 - But I can still sense them. My cowardly brothers and sisters will cause untold suffering if we allow them to stay in the shadows.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_16 - Moreover, they are a threat to me.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_17 - That is where you come in. Help us to slay them all, and I will reward you handsomely.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_18 - The dragon you're looking for goes by the name Creed.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_19 - He's deluded a group of diseased humans into thinking they can take their land back. He's poisoned their blood with his own draconic essence.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE1_20 - If you live through this, I assure you it will be worth it.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE2_01 - The gems you collected will be able to augment the power of the weapons I gave you. But I require another ingredient. It will come from your next target.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE2_02 - Her name is Nalice. And until recently, she stood at Wyrmrest Temple as the representative of the black dragonflight. Now, she's on the run.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE2_03 - I hope to see you back from this mission alive, but if I do not, I want to say I've enjoyed seeing you work. You're a credit to your race. Good luck.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE3_01 - Fermion is a crafty one, my friend. To flush him out, you'll have to operate in disguise and hobnob with the elite of Dalaran society.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE3_02 - Succeed here, and our work is nearly done. Good luck, hero.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_01 - Your eyes do not deceive you. The trecherous red dragonflight sought to kill me off. I hope now you see the truth about them.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_02 - I can feel it, as if a dark shadow has been lifted from the land. Dead! My father is dead.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_03 - Champion, you have your reward. But there is one final dragon we need to slay.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_04 - Fahrad! I was just talking about you. The final black dragon. The one who's been more hidden than any of them.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_05 - Yes, you rescued me while I was still within my egg. And I owe you my life.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_06 - But you are a black dragon, and you share the corruption of all my brothers and sisters.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_07 - Do you deny it? The dark visions, the voices in your head?
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_08 - And what are they telling you now, Fahrad? What do your dark masters whisper?
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_09 - I will never be controlled! The red dragonflight has no idea what they unleashed when they experimented on my egg.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_10 - Hero, strike now! Use your newfound power to finish him!
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_11 - It is done, friend. To my knowledge, I am the only black dragon who remains.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_12 - A new age for mortals has dawned, and heroes like you are among the vanguard.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_13 - I must go now, disappear.
  • VO_QUEST_43_WRATHION_SCENE4_14 - Perhaps we will meet again. I hope we find ourselves on the same side.
  • VO_Wrathion_Greeting01 - I do not share my father's madness.
  • VO_Wrathion_Greeting02 - A new era is beginning.
  • VO_Wrathion_Greeting03 - I must remain hidden so that I remain free.
  • VO_Wrathion_Greeting04 - I believe an individual can have an enormous impact on the world.
  • VO_Wrathion_Greeting05 - You do not want to make it on to my list.

Raid Finder Loot Rules Update
Short version: When using Raid Finder for the Dragon Soul raid instance, players whose currently assigned class role (Tank, Healer, or Damage) matches the class role that a piece of armor or a weapon is flagged for will receive +100 to their Need roll.
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
In response to concerns regarding how loot will be distributed in the Raid Finder system, we are making some changes to how loot rolls will work when using the Need Before Greed system in the Raid Finder. When using Raid Finder for the Dragon Soul raid instance, players whose currently assigned class role (Tank, Healer, or Damage) matches the class role that a piece of armor or a weapon is flagged for will receive +100 to their Need roll. For purposes of this check, your currently assigned role is defined as the class role you have assigned when a boss is defeated. Sound confusing? I hope not, but here's how it'll work:

A boss dies and drops EPIC TANKING ITEM.

  • A mage in the group yawns and clicks the "Greed" button, getting a 98.

  • A Fury warrior in the group wants to take up tanking, so he rolls "Need" and gets a solid 64.

  • Both tanks want the item. Tank 1 rolls a 12, and Tank 2 rolls a 7.

So what happens?

Because the mage rolled greed, she's right out from the start. The Fury warrior's Need roll was higher than the tanks', but he was in the Damage Dealer role when the boss died, and the item is flagged for tanking, so his 64 is still just a 64 out of a possible 100. In contrast, Tank 1 and Tank 2 each get a 100 point bonus to their rolls because they were in the Tanking role when the boss died and they’re rolling on an item that has been flagged for the tanking role. That means that Tank 1 rolled a 112 out of 200, and tank 2 rolled a 107 out of 200. Tank 1 wins the item! If a roll got a bonus, that bonus will be clearly displayed in the chat log.

Please keep in mind that, at least for now, this system will only look at class role, and not player spec. This bonus isn't only for tanking items either – it applies to Tanking, Damage Dealing, and Healing items, and some items are flagged for more than one class role too. Starting out, only Dragon Soul raid items will be flagged for class roles in this way (though all of the items in the raid will be flagged for one or more roles). As you might expect, all the normal Need Before Greed rules are still in place, so that means that these roll bonuses won't overrule normal class and usability restrictions. Item tooltips in the raid won't reflect which class roles will get rolling bonuses, but it should be fairly obvious based on stat allocations and item type.

We are considering expanding this system to apply to the new 4.3 dungeons as well, though it is unlikely that we'll see the system apply to older dungeons or raids for now. Also, please keep in mind that this system is newly minted, and it may see further changes before it's released with the Raid Finder in patch 4.3.

Hunter Tier 13 and Visual Retrospective

Hunter – Wyrmstalker Battlegear

We like to tie a Hunter’s Tier armour in with an appropriate donor creature – it suggests the Hunter has actually hunted for the set! As there’s an awful lot of dragons in this patch, a draconic theme was the way to go. We wanted to reference but not simply reproduce the classic Dragonstalker set. To that end, we limited the use of dragon heads to the helm and chained leathery wings around the shoulders which gives the impression of a skeletal dragon crouching over the Hunter’s upper body.

Hunter Tier 1-12

Patch 4.3: Dungeons and Raid Boss Transcripts (Spoilers)
Build 14791 also brought us the voice over files for the new raid and dungeons bosses. Do not read anything below if you do not like spoilers. Thanks to Alram and Longview for the transcripts.

  • VO_ET_NOZDORMU_EVENT_02 - At last it has come to pass! The moment of my demise. The loop.. is closed. My future self will cause no more harm.
  • VO_ET_NOZDORMU_EVENT_03 - Still.. in time. I will fall to madness. And you heroes.. will vanquish me. The cycle will repeat.. so it goes.

Patch 4.3: Tier 13 Set Bonus Update
Last night's PTR build changed a couple of Tier 13 Set Bonuses, it seems that they're more recent than the latest update of the official preview but you might want to wait for an official confirmation just in case! For a complete list of the T13 Set Bonuses, check out the official preview:

  • Feral, 4P -- Frenzied Regeneration also affects all raid and party members. This effect cannot be triggered if you have been in Bear Form for less than 15 sec.

  • 2P -- Your Arcane Blast has a 100% chance and your Fireball, Frostfire Bolt, and Frostbolt spells have a 50% chance to grant Stolen Time, increasing your haste rating by 50 for 30 sec and stacking up to 10 times. When Arcane Power, Combustion, or Icy Veins expires, all stacks of Stolen Time are lost.
  • 4P -- Each stack of Stolen Time also reduces the cooldown of Arcane Power by 7 sec, Combustion by 3 sec, and Icy Veins by 6 sec.

  • Healer, 2P -- After using Power Infusion or Divine Hymn, the mana cost of your healing spells is reduced by 25% for [10|23] sec. (10 sec for Discipline, 23 for non-Discipline.)

Void Storage Updated Costs
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
I just recently got back from a meeting with Ghostcrawler and have an update to share regarding the prices for Void Storage. Instead of charging 1000g to unlock a Void Storage vault and 100g to deposit and withdraw items, we're looking at only requiring the following amounts for each transaction:

Unlock - 100g
Deposit - 25g
Withdrawal - Free

We agree with the suggestions we've seen that placing a higher fee on withdrawals would create a stronger deterrent for using Void Storage as a secondary bank. That said, we don't want players to find themselves in a situation where they are unable to retrieve an item simply because they don't have the gold. This is why we're leaning towards a more expensive deposit (to differentiate Void Storage from a normal bank) and allowing all withdrawals to be free. Please keep in mind that these prices may not hit the PTR and are, of course, subject to change before the release of 4.3.

Rather than potentially having my statements in this thread come back to bite me at some point in the future, I'm going to risk being confusing or sounding dumb.

In short, they agree that the process of mailing heirlooms around constantly is a little annoying. We'd prefer to try and work ourselves away from the method of mailing out BoA items in the future, like pets, mounts, etc. To that end, we have some design goals in mind that would improve this sort of item distribution system. And with those design goals have come some ideas for changing heirloom mechanics. This is sort of contrary to the idea I stated in this thread about just designing the system to allow players to mail their heirlooms all around their accounts without realm restrictions.

That's all of the information I can share at the moment, but I feel like it's worth pointing out that the design philosophy I stated earlier isn't so set in stone -- we're reevaluating these types of systems as we look toward the future. I apologize if I've caused any confusion. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
