Im pretty sure i heard somewhere in lore Turalyon was so powerful with the light that his powers turned blue/white from his attunement with the light itself.
Id love a paladin questline that would help do just that, the yellow holy effects look very dull after a while, but they look awesome in other colors. The only color that affected spells that i know of is the hallows end orange pumpkin tint effect from trick or treating, and the added tint of orange made the light look awesome for a paladin.
Problem would be to explain it in lore, im not sure that link i read is even up anymore.
And should he be a prophet of It's coming, he shall be cast out by his kin and his peers, for they cannot comprehend and fear the end of the corrupt empire. - Unknown, 3/1/2012I am Lothaeryn, Dragonborn of Nirn and Paladin of Azeroth. Hear my voice and tremble... Bask in my radiance and be inspired...
For I am the Hand of Dawn, and justice shall be done by my shout and by my blade.
for shaman maybe some sort of enhanced totems? i can't think of lore or design though...
For Paladins, I'd really like a quest per race:
Humans and Dwarves get to comune with Tyr (not the RL norse God, not the DND god, but the wow god, there is one) and get a reward based on that (a weapon, a knightly armour)
For Belves: Capture a Naru / source of light (I really loved when Blood elves were "evil" Paladins and manipulated the light, sadly it changed a little, but maybe it can be brought back) get theire light spells red/dark (like seal of blood)
For Draenei: Saving a Naru: getting even more light infused spells. Or maybe comuning with a Void/Dark Naru and getting purple spells(?)
For Tauren: Something to do with sun and ancient tauren religion (need to elaborate on that)
I always like different types of Polymorph's and think that Mages should get a few more.
Warriors could get a new type of Heroic Leap that makes them jump higher?
My weekly podcast can be downloaded here this week Can a guy and a girl ever have a truly platonic friendship?
Hunter: Lone Wolf. In that quest chain, you starve your pet, throw rocks at it to make it run away, and when it doesn't, you lure it into a bear trap. Then you feed it poison. And stuff it to keep around as a memento. On wheels. And you gain increased damage because you're just this kind of person.
Warrior: Mastery of Arms. You learn an ability similar to "Way of the Monk" that makes 2h and DW completely on par with each other, allowing you to FINALLY CHOOSE HOW YOU FIGHT regardless of spec.
They should have quest line for Warriors where their hits actually make enemies gush out visible blood coming out and hitting the ground. Even if it's only for bladestorm, I'd be cool with that.
Pure Light for Paladin - your gold light turns white - your wings turn into Tyrael like ones - your guardian fuses with you and you create um even more Tyraelic image - your ashbringer ability (always forget the name) turns into cosmic sword that looks algalonish
warriors should totally get a transmog of armor and a mount in the same style.
Cool thread, what would rogues get? Something with shadows.. too early to think of something right now.
"I find this rain quite pleasant. It feels as though raindrops are blessing our victory..."
Hunters could have a quest where they have to find unique, elite mobs scattered in distant corners of the game and then defeat them while mastering every aspect of their class. Finally, they'd need to complete the quest in an epic, classic raid setting before receiving an awesome & unique bow.
Since 9/11 the NSA has spent at least $70,000,000,000 while lying about their own effectiveness. Even if we sweep aside the extensive lawbreaking, ethical problems, economic damage, and abuse of power, the fact remains that the NSA makes us all less secure, running useless mass surveillance, with a handful of successes in other questionably legal programs.
For Paladin's my hope is we find some way of obtaining librams that we can either hold on our waist or maybe even cast spells with.
Perhaps a quest spanning the plaguelands where the paladin must find the lost pages of the libram belonging to Uther the Lightbringer and obtain one page from each of the various Paladin factions in Azeroth (Blood Knights, Silver Hand, Argent Crusade, Scarlet Crusade, etc) by either fighting them or helping them.
"Enjoy your power"
White Fire for mages.
Quiver for Hunters
Diablo-esque Angel Wings for Paladins (please dear god Blizzard I need this shit)
1. Alter Time, instead of a clock we use the image of a Tardis.
2. Timewarp, everyone now goes 88mph.
I think what they did for rogues with the dagger quest line was really good. (The stealth missions not the cluster collecting.)
The vanilla hunter bow quest was awesome. There was a priest one as well, but I wasn't able to do that one, I've only just heard about how cool it was.
Class-specific quests and rewards are so cool and actually help with the progressively more homogenized classes and give them their own feeling. They need to do a lot more of it.
For it to be equivalent to the warlock green-fire quest, classes need something that alters the appearance of all their abilities. Something like no pet or a shiny weapon isn't the same thing.
A few people mentioned pure white light for priest and paladin abilities, that'd be good.
For mages would be trickier since they use all kinds of different colored abilities, but maybe something to affect specifically their arcane spells.
Maybe rogues could have dark energy explode out of them every time they use a combo-ability, or cause them to leave behind a trail of shadow.
