    Wow. You really do need glasses.

    I await with bated breath for your apology when it happens. Now stay on topic as asked.

    I agree with Immitis. It's a Druid Illidan. (it even says so wherever it can)

    You guys are arguing semantics. It is simply the Illidan Hero (in the game) given the appearance of a Druid. End of argument.

    Holy crap reading all the HOTS datamined text descriptions last night of those variants was weird enough but seeing that Druid/Demon Hunter hydrid today, day be smokin' da bomb diggity.

    nope, they are updating the warcraft 3 units and putting them in starcraft

    warcraft 3 orc heroes


    The Far Seer, Shadow Hunter, Blademaster, and Tauren Chieftain Orc heroes from Warcraft III have all been remodeled and will be available for use by map developers in the StarCraft II Editor some time in 2014.

    I was thinking about it more as cosmetic transmog items or something that doesn't take up a loot slot, but I guess a "sub race" or customization feature could work, but it should only be for high level 55-60+ druids. My idea is cosmetic glyph system. Horns glowing eyes for druids, permanent glowing eyes for warlocks, or proc'ing only when you cast like the new challenge mode transmog cosmetic cast procs. Blue or golden eyes for paladins.

    Maybe a green fire type quest to get the glyph.

    Shan'do means "teacher". Not sure what else to call them, druidic mutations, druidic growths seems more apt, Cenarius' Blessing, Dreamers,....
    This Epic Druid Class pic from the RPG is one of my favorites.


    Samwise went for a different style here, almost like a cartoon more than usual. I've always loved it.


    I wish Malfurion's model in game WOW looked half this cool. They updated Illidan in WOE but left Malfurion with that boring old outdated reskin. Think his horns are too big? Sod off!

    My LoL example above is perfect. If you put Vi's skin onto Caitlyn and name it Sniper Vi, it becomes hard to tell which champion you are facing. And it is very important to know that because Vi is a tanky bruiser, vs. Caitlyn who is a squishy carry.

    If we were dealing with Generic Demon Hunter, you could slap the name Illidan onto a skin, or Malfurion, or hell even Arthas the Demon Hunter, and it would work fine. But Illidan is what the champion is named. Shan'do Illidan is named as it is to avoid confusion; You are fighting the champion in game that is known as Illidan, which is a Demon Hunter. The model and abilities is what matters, and yes it DOES look like Malfurion, and it uses Demon Hunter abilities. I don't know how you can say it doesn't look like him. Illidan isn't nearly as bulky as that.
    These are all alternate realities. You get that, right? They are from different universe all gathered together. Plus just complete silly jokes.
    As I recall, Illidan was born with amber eyes, Malfurion was not, he had silver eyes. Only through use of druidism did his eyes change over time, and now recently his eyes have changed more to show his mastery over all forms of druidism.

    This is an alternative reality Illidan who uses his fighting style as a druid while augmenting it with nature/arcane instead of fel/arcane.

    Also for you intimidated by MOBAs and the infamous learning curve, don't be in HOTS. It's not your typical MOBA, Blizzard is "reinventing the wheel" where this isn't just a bunch of lane defend and attacks. You have wide open battlefields, with simple but highly variable objectives, and everyone has a role to play whether if you're defense or support, you will feel rewarded in team play and you won't be yelled or berated as it's really designed to be made obvious what you're supposed to be doing, even certain support heroes can change the entire battlefield for you team's advantage at times. They want you to jump in and start having fun without trying to figure out what to do. If you can control a hero in WC3, you know how to play this game roughly. It's just a matter of learning a few abilities and within minutes you'll feel at home and familiar with what you're doing while the game's potential expands for you as you experience more, as Blizzard is famed for in their gameplay. Easy to pick up and use and rewarding to master.

    It's free to play too. Just don't let well known MOBA cliche's intimidate you.

    So, out of the huge amount of racial datamined weapons we found 2 years ago, I've been meaning to point out all week one has shown up in game.


    It was clearly a Frostwolf Axe. And now it's in Durotan's hands.
    http://media.mmo-champion.com/images...hara_on_07.jpg

    I was really hoping these would fall into player's hands, but they are all highly class and race specific. The Worgen Deathknight Runeblade with the roses, the Night Elf druidic staff. Go to page 16 and 17 of my WOW photobucket gallery to see all of the weapons that were datamined.

    Me tooooooo. I've never been big on MOBAs because I never knew WTF was going on but it took me about 30 seconds of reading some of the match battlefield rules to figure out exactly what to do. It's just a matter of learning to use my hero now. I just know like Diablo 3 it's going to be filled with dramatic visual FX and sounds that make WOW seem a dim echo but for on variable now to factor in. Like a Barbarian in D3 made a warrior in WOW seem tame, adding the ability to /roar in Cataclysm out loud and the glyph to float when battle shouting was a nice gift from Blizzard. I think WOD will do a lot with the new character models and animations to spice up the feel of everything, casting, melee, emotes, new sound FX. People claiming it's just a waste because you can't see your body blah blah are going to be bombarded with new sensory data, sounds, sights, explosions and stimulations leeching the neurotransmitters right our of your neurons and gorging your receptors like a Pandaren and a Dwarf in a drinking contest.

    Yeah, my gallery isn't working for me either all of a sudden. Maybe too high traffic, or the site is crashed. I can't open it either. It should work sooner or later, but you will find a weapon model unique for each race in the game we datamined 2 years ago nobody has seen used until now with that axe.

    Okay now my gallery is working for me.

    We have this to ponder on:
    I'm Nick Altman and now I'm famous!


    My theory is the different colors could be for different classes in some instances.
    Pink for druid or in other instances green for druid or warlock, blue/purple for magi, yellow/gold for priests, red for warlocks,... it's circumstantial. Some of them can only apply to one class. So perhaps NPCs? Perhaps level 90 boost weapons? Perhaps they're all for NPCs. It's a mystery. But seeing Durotar with the axe was nice after 2 years of waiting.

    Night Elf Druid staff


    Draenei Paladin Hammer



    Blood Elf caster stave



    Dwarven Hunter Bow (WTF? A BOW? Where's me hammer?)


    Forsaken Rogue Shanker


    Gnome warrior axe




    Goblin or Gnome warlock stave



    Goblin Rogue Dagger



    Human Priest Stave



    Pandaren Monk Staff?



    Tauren Fist Glaive



    Troll Shaman Claws



    Worgen Deathknight Runeblade

    They've actually been in use here and there since 5.2. Many Kor'kron mobs use that same axe, Al'tabim has the Gnome staff.

    Ah, really? My fault, I last played this game seriously when Throne of Thunder came out. I've only seen the first part of that in LFR and about a few hours on Timeless Isle while dicking about here and there trying to not get close to burn out while my nostalgia builds, still no SOO. I really am trying to build up my WOW hunger for the pre expansion patch to cram as much as I can into those 2-4 weeks to see all of MOP with my new models and animations and sounds.

    I've done a little here and there. I feel really,... bad about how much I missed considering how much I found MOP to be an improvement in content from the last few expansions ambition wise. But WOW's social aspects have hurt my experience lately, along with real life stuff that had me gone for over 6 months. I feel like I only played half the expansion.

    So is this Al'Tabim? Good god, what custom geosets can do for armor. Hell, if only players could have this kind of attention paid to our armor with engine specs and all that dev resources and rig bottle necks and all that stuff.

    Almost all Kor'Krons npc got that Frostwolves axe in soo. That most likely means it is in game files, got id and can be tmorphed. Time for a little database research

    You could probably tmorph them if they are in the game files. But don't because EULA tightrope walking isn't fun lol

    wait a minute the racial gear is actually being worked on? i thought they said it would come out later in WoD because they were focused on model revamps.
