    So we've gone from wailing about how Pandaria has nothing to do with anything and Blizzard should have made an expansion about "established content..."

    ...to wailing about a raid boss being established across an expansion instead of being something completely different.

    They obviously need to replace Chris Metzen with M. Night Shyamalan. After After Earth, he's probably available.

    Tsuna - Well, I hope so, because the average person sees gay pride, and asian/african pride, and everything else as OK, but "white pride" is seen as automagically racist.

    Yes, I would rather have seen the word hubris rather than pride, because the word "pride" has been abused beyond all reasonable meaning in modern Western society.

    And yes, I find the rapist tentacles disturbing, and I once pllayed "Day of the Tentacle". You remember, evil purple tentacle and all that.

    Well, if you take Genesis at face value, yeah, it is.

    The serpent didn't lie, but Adam and Eve shouldn't have listened - it was their pride that made them partake of the forbidden fruit that would make them as gods.

They're obviously based on the same base model, and they use the same animations/skeletons, but they're all different models. Look at 'em side by side in a 3D viewer with the skins turned off.
    I don't think they should even have similar models. Why isn't the Sha of Anger an angry mass of muscles cleaving around? Why isn't the Sha of Fear something that can REALLY scare someone?

    Doesn't matter what Blizzard does, someone is going to hate on it. No good deed goes unpunished.

    If they didn't have similar models then they would have to make more lesser Sha to correspond with each type. Instead they went the easy route and used the same few models of lesser Sha with some slight variations. Blizzard likes to cut corners when they can - they admitted this themselves a few times. Though, I personally would have liked different color variations of Sha, at least.

    On top of that, they would have had to make them look similar enough in shape, if not skins/textures. They have to be visibly similar to show that they are all the greater Sha. They're all from the same Old God and he wouldn't have seven heads that look so completely different they don't even look related somehow.
    3 hints to surviving MMO-C forums:
    1.) If you have an opinion, someone will say that it is wrong
    2.) If you have a source, there will be people who refuse to believe it
    3.) If you use logic, it will be largely ignored
    Btw: *Tanaan, *Farahlon, *Arakkoa. Not that hard.

    I don't really see how it matters how they call the beast, you're actually upset because they named it sha of pride? they coulda called it sha of whatever and I don't really see the difference it would make... would still be the same boss fight and same skin

    tldr; what's in a name?

    All sha are named after a negative trait. Pride IRL is bad, therefore the name is fitting.

    It is good, until it is bad...according to Emperor Shao Hao.

    In this context it does make sense.

    Pride is good until it is bad. It's good you're proud of yourself and your work until you're so proud you can't take criticism, change, adapt or accept reality.

    It does make sense in that way.
    I just couldn't figure out what he meant when he said it. I suppose it could've been worded better without losing the wise accent.
