    These forums are just a sad echo chamber, and MMO-C is more like an echo outhouse, but fortunately (or maybe I'm just lucky), most people you actually meet in game are not like that.

    Awesome. Weta are THE BEST at this type of thing. Swords, Armour, costumes -everything. They go into detail on the weapons and armour that may never be seen on the screen, but the actors do. Many of them that have worn their costumes love how they looked. Viggo (Aragorn in LoTR) kept his sword, as did Elijah Woods (Frodo) from the films.
    You can tour their workshop most days in Wellington.
    Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life.

    It's truly exciting. As much as I hate it, I'm glad they're keeping us as in the dark as they can now that the film is a definite. They're almost done filming and we have but one picture, and most of it is off-screen. I'm bouncing in my seat thinking about this, even moreso with this news of Weta's involvement. Holy shit, you guys. We're going to see a fucking Warcraft: Orcs vs. Humans movie! And it is going to bust the mold of video game-based film adaptations. I never would have thought it when I first played WC2. I'm already eager for the sequel. It's already set up to be even better than the first. Turalyon, Alleria, more Doomhammer, more Lothar, dat Great Royal Sword... dat Lordaeron... can you imagine if the films make it to the WC3 era, especially how much dough will be thrown at the film franchise if the first one is successful? FAWWWWWK...

    I'm a little eager.

    He's there for this week.

    He could be on vacation , he may not be. He's getting the studio tour partially because a few Weta Employees wanted to met him.

    It may or may not have anything to do with the Wow movie , we don't know.

    There were some rumors few month ago that guys from WETA were noticed with some parts of horse ammunition and paladin tier 2 armor pieces. Just sayin.
