    5.3 elves and orcs?

    I'm looking at the armor listed for 5.3, in conjunction with the mounts offered. There is new food only usable in northern barrens for lvl 90. Suggesting that there will be a hub there. Some of the gear listed, namely that hunter gear seems elvish-like. with that and the faerie mount. I believe 5.3 will be the elves breaking through Ashenvale to start the attack on Org

    Thoughts?

    It was never Hardcore Vs Casual. It was Socialites Vs. Solo players

    The Armored Dragonhawk is for the 200 mount achievement I believe.

    Ah, I'm too tired to make sense, I think 5.3 is going to focus on elves and orcs, since there is weird food only usable in the northern barrens. The mount announced is usually associated with elves and the gear announced comes from orcs, and the hunter's fun set seems elvish in nature. Was curious about people's thoughts.

    it would be kinda silly to offer another dragonhawk for mounts, wouldn't it? also there would be a blue and red version, no?

    Do you have a link to the hunter set? Obviously the patch will focus on orcs as it is the build-up to SoO. From what I have seen though, the patch will be more focused on Trolls and Orcs rather than Blood Elves and Orcs.

    Edit: It also looks like the horde/alliance will be sharing a rep for this patch: http://ptr.wowhead.com/faction=1440

    So, do you think the whole experience will be a little different for orc players?

    considering these sets looks just like dungeon set 2, I'd bet these are placeholders.

    I'm speaking from a lore standpoint. not a race.

    The assault will probably come in the form of:

    - Horde: Troll and Tauren Rebellion bolstered by whatever Orcs Thrall can muster (if any). The likelihood that we'll see any Belves and Forsaken depends on how much the Sunreavers are pissed at Garrosh and whether Sylvanus wants to capitalize on the opportunity.

    - Alliance: Uprising of the Nightelves with extra Draenei bulk (maybe) and naval assault led by Stormwind and Ironforge.

    Since this is the case, would it be too crazy to jump to the conclusion that the bat mount may be an exalted reward for this rep faction?
