Good Q&A and good to know we're going to see more 5-mans again
*The devs will try to reduce the economic impact that the Enchanting and Jewelcrafting changes will make. Enchanting might be able to make some weapons or offhands. Jewelcrafters might be able to make some trinkets or other things to sell.*
Ah come on. It didn't work with tailoring...so why should it work with other professions? I mean most of the stuff you can tailor are outdated after the second or third week and usually need three weeks to even get the mats(or pay much money to build them faster which results in prices that nobody wants to pay just to get an advantage for a week). The only 2 things that really work are the spellthreads(which are essentially enchants) and bags. So giving jewelcrafters and enchanters weapons and offhands will not compensate anything...and especially enchanting is not a way to get rich anymore(too many mats in the game and too many people have that profession cause it's one of the classics) anyway.
What's with the obsession with changing your character after the new models are added? Your character is going to look exactly the same, only with a higher resolution. There's no difference at all.
This dev interview had a lot of arbitrary and contradictory moments, which is sadly what I come to expect from Blizz.
Hit didn't feel like a bonus, so they're taking it away and replacing it with stuff like Cleave and Lifedrain. Apparently Dodge and Parry didn't feel like bonuses either, so they're taking those away and replacing them with... Armor.
They're working on quivers. I remember when my hunter had a quiver that displayed. Two steps back, one step forward.
We're not going to get a commitment to a free recustomization because they'll burn in hell before admitting that anyone might not like the character redesign.
Garrisons and QoL changes are content. And the model update is a "new race".
"Historically the clan chiefs are all male" - so when it comes to gender, fictional history and the WoW canon is really important to Blizz. "Please share your real time travel with the rest of us." But when is comes to their precious plot device, fictional history and the WoW canon can be cheerfully jettisoned.
And, of course, we have to get the now-expected, "our time travel isn't time travel!" line; "First, it's not a story of time travel. It's a story of Draenor. There's not moment where you've disrupted the space/time continuum." Seriously, has Kotick threatened to shoot their dogs if they admit their core plot device is time travel?

And what was wrong with saber lash? At least there'd be more variety if they used both (and even *gasp* inventing new ways of having 2-tank fights), instead of being lazy and have every boss being "taunt at X stacks or take 10000% more dmg from the next hit". But then again, the cynical side of me says they also do it to prevent the bosses from being soloed in future.Swaps are one tool, along with just tanking different things, but we want to be able to have one boss fights as well.

We no longer do saber lash-style damage soaking, which tanks as a group were pretty down on.
i think its like the situation in "Fringe". Walter (Garrosh) goes to a parallel universe where the orcs havent drank the blood of Manoroth yet (past) and thanks to this, both worlds (universes) are kind of bound together. The collision is comming near where both worlds collide (maybe when garrosh goes trough the dark portal?) and we have to stop garrosh to prevend the collision.
and when we brought peace to Draenor maybe we will return to Azeroth trough the dark portal und combine the 2 worlds and the dark portal then works as a bridge, like the machine in Fringe, that createt a place where both universes could exist without destroying each other.
and of course, since all the fighting is taking place in Draenor, there are no changes @ Azeroth.

What exactly was asked/answered concerning the character re-customization? Like, links to it or direct quotes if possible. I didn't see this happen anywhere.
I honestly don´t see what the big deal is. I enjoyed Isle of Thunder, Dino Island and timeless island without flying. For main pandaland, I usually use flightpaths anyway so I can take a pee break LOL.
The real ´problem´ Blizzard has with this is something you pointed out. So many rewards and even cash-shop items are items you can´t really use. Sure, you can ride a drake as a ground mount, but it looks silly.

This is a first for me. I'm not even remotely excited about this expansion.
there's the night elf sentinel in dragonblight, trying to flirt with another female sentinel. i'm not sure if this is just joking or actual flirting, the night elf she does it at seems to get very flustered.
there's a dwarf female and human female who share the same last name in the shrine of seven stars, they stand and talk and seemingly flirt. the dwarf has stockton as her last name, which is a human last name. so you can get from that they're probably married. they could be sisters in law, but they seem to flirt and do /shy emotes at each other.
the next one never struck me as lesbian, but there's the two in arathi highlands, i think one is named kinelory. i remember the quest, and it just doesn't give me a vibe like they're romantically involved, but a multitude of other people seem to get that vibe.
honestly, i'm bisexual and i really don't think there should be glaringly homosexual characters, or it's just gonna feel forced. the way blizz seems to be doing it now is ok, there could be more to it, so you really know for sure they're gay, but nothing super extreme.
That was amazing. I snort laughedAfter watching the Blizzcon panels my wife asked me the following: "Are we going to get a heroic scenario where we discover the secret location Blizzard has hidden all of their female lead characters so we can liberate them?"
