    Submit Questions for the Developers
    We will have the opportunity to ask Tom Chilton (Game Director) some questions on Thursday.

    If you have any questions you think we should ask, be sure to post them here for consideration. We will pick the best questions and add them to our list!

    • These should be questions about MoP and Patch 5.4, not future expansions or far off changes.
    • No class specific questions please. This includes things like balance between the different healing/tank/DPS classes and specs.

    How much easier are Flexible raids supposed to be than normal? For example, is current, post-nerf Normal Horridon still mechanically harder than a Flexible version of that encounter would be? (if there had been a Flex mode of ToT)

    Back at the start of the expansion, Blizzard hinted that Spirits of Harmony may become account-bound at some point, likely in the final tier. Is there still a chance of that happening?

    The Heirloom items are set from 90-100, will they be used after 5.4 or will they not scale past 90?

    I might comment on a few before this is linked in the news in an hour or two and it becomes impossible.

    GC answered this yesterday in an interview "Most guilds should be able to make progress in Flex difficulty".

    The current difficulty on the PTR even was giving a few 13/13 guilds a bit of trouble, and a mix of normal and 13/13 players were unable to do the bosses this weekend. The latest build reduced the difficulty of these bosses though!

    Ok, thanks!

    Edited: Perhaps this question instead, unless it's been answered too... kinda a minor question, but still I've been wondering about it.

    It's been stated that Flexible raids will be released in wings the same way LFR is. Is there any chance the first wing of Flex raids will be released on patch day, or will it be released after a 1 week delay like LFR typically is?

    Timeless isle is looking great. Any specific reason it's set on Pandaria as opposed to in Durotar or Azshara to be closer to the new raid?
    You don't create "justice" by destroying. That includes buildings, cars, or the careers of the people you want "justice" for.

    Q: How do you feel the Legendary questline and rewards worked out and would you do it again in the future?

    The lore and characters are all involved with Pandaria. There aren't any mists for the island to disappear into off the coast of Durotar!

    They haven't addressed the exact timeline yet, but Flex will open faster than LFR as of the last update we got.

    Mr Chilton, do you think that there will be more of a inclusion of dailies being the vehicle of episodic storytelling going forward like Dominance Point and Isle of Thunder, or is the game going to transition away from that? Also can we expect to see more lore driven video shorts like the Burdens of Shao-hao?

    Can you give any hints about where this cosmetic Dark Shaman gear comes from, and will there be sets for other classes in 5.4?

    Yes. Please ask if we will get more neat lore videos.

    1. What are your thoughts on the legendary quest chain this expansion, will this be a model we see in more use in the future, or will the old model be used?

    2. Will there be, and what can we expect from a 5.5 in terms of content?

    Everyone really needs to let Blizzard know that you enjoyed it if you want to see more!

    Why did you guys choose to not add legendary weapons this expansion?

  16. #16
    Was there anything you guys ended up scrapping this expansion that you never really told us about? Also, MORE LORE VIDS LIKE SHAOHAO!!!!

    If flex proves to be successful, is there a chance it might replace 10 and 25 man raiding if the difficulty can be maintained?

    Take for example
    Lfr being difficulty 1
    current flex being difficulty 2 (and being renamed)
    current 10 and 25 man raiding being difficulty 3 (whilst under the flex system of having any number of people)
    Heroic raiding remaining as it is (very organised 10 or 25 sized teams) with difficulty 4?

    I believe this question is appropriate, he likely won't be able to say yes or no (which I'm expecting to happen anyway), but he'll be able to say what the thought process is for flex initially and the plans for the future.

    Will 5.4 have a release cinematic? Not a preview like DS, but a trailer like BT.

    Why aren't the BoA Heirloom shields on the DMF vendors?

    I'd like to see an answer to this as well. I thought 5.1 and 5.2 handled dailies really well and the story scenarios after certain reputation thresholds were really cool. I'd like to see more dailies of that nature in the future and hope 5.0 daily backlash doesn't turn them away from it.

    I'd love to see a question about mouse cursors. I have such a bitch of a time seeing my cursor during combat on some fights. I completely loose it and it annoys the shit outta me. I hate it having to disappear when the buttons are pressed too.

    Can we see more mouse options? (new skins, better visuals)
