Tier 14 Paladin and Warlock Videos
Everything looks better in videos, I published 2 small video previews of the new T14 sets discovered last night.





Temple of the Jade Serpent Instance Preview
Our lovely Nik (watch our stream!) went through the Temple of the Jade Serpent instance currently available for testing and made a quick video preview of the instance! Now with more monsters, evil bosses, and comments!



Pet Battle System and Pet Journal Preview
Let's discuss the Pet Battle System and the upcoming Pet Journal! The features aren't really implemented on beta yet but datamining yielded a decent amount of data to work with! We also have a small video preview of the Pet Journal.



Hunting Wild Pets
Acquiring wild pets will be done by tracking them on your minimap, we don't really have details on the entire process/fight but some of those pets will be much rarer than the others. Spawn conditions could depend on the time of the day or the weather in the zone you're in!


However, it doesn't necessarily mean that you will spend forever browsing the web looking for spawn locations. The game will apparently include a convenient map to show you where you are likely to encounter a specific pet.



Pet Types
There is currently 10 pet types in the game. Each type can be strong or weak against another type, for example, Dragonkin attacks deal bonus damage to Flying companions and less damage to other Dragonkin and Water companions. All the details are in the pet skills chart below!



Pet Skills
We also have a (mostly) complete of pet skills as of today, keep in mind that this is early beta and the feature isn't even implemented yet. A lot of that stuff is likely to change.

    Not a fan of the tier sets so far, but with transmog I don't really care. I kinda dislike that they added different types of pets and that they are weak/strong against other types. That's just annoying, and to similar to pokemon. So now it really is turned into pokemon..So much for sticking to one or just a few pets, now you will need at least one of each type.Time to farm BoE pets and save them till MoP launch!

    The jaw needs to move less "Clown Carnival Machine"-esk. Needs to spend a bit more time closed than open, like a proper mouth?But otherwise, it looks so good.Different, but very very good.

    Is it just me or does the Warlock Tier remind you of Darnie Darko a little bit?

    He'll grow tentacles and start casting "Mini Cataclysm." Then Lil' Nozdormu, Lil' Alexstraza, Lil' Kalecgos, and Lil's Ysera will assist the Argent Gruntling and a group of 10-25 Lil' Raiders fight back while Lil' Deathwing splashes around in the Lil' Maelstrom Kiddie Pool.


    Edit: Derp'd the names

    No way, the "clown carnival machine" look is what makes it creepy and cool. Keep the animation at the speed it is at.

    I said this on your previous post but I'm posting this again because you embedded one of his videos and said he is "lovely Nik" but Boub, you may want to get a different person to do your livestreaming. This guy Nik, playing the Rogue, is a complete ass and is the "gogogo" guy. In his first group that he got, he bitched about the tank taking "too long" to pull stuff and when they wiped on the second boss like four times the tank tabbed out to try and find a strat for the fight. Then the Rogue kept dps'ing the wrong add in the fight when it's stacks were up at 8 after he said they need to switch at 5 but blamed other people for the wipe (when he said the 5 stack strategy "didn't work out"). Tried vote kicking the tank and said "I don't have time for this" and asked the livestream viewers if he should bail. I'm sorry but this isn't Hour of Twilight dungeons, this is new shit with new mechanics and after dying four times, as a tank I would start looking up strategies too. If he doesn't have time for it maybe he shouldn't be doing this type of thing. It's beta testing, it's learning and some things may be bugged so perhaps a bit of research to see if an encounter is even doable is in order. The guy is an elitist ass and how he ever got legendary daggers boggles the mind if he can't even watch stacks on a mob without getting tunnel vision on his own damage complaining "oh I can't get any combo points." That's not the point of the fight and bitching about it is stupid. It's a big mark against MMO-Champion to have their name on something run by someone that is such an elitist ass that he would do those things when the dungeon isn't even a day old. You want powerhouse group then form it yourself with people you know plain and simple. I don't think I'll be watching anymore of their livestream for this reason. You want to get a stream running for MMO Champion, be a bit more selective in the person you have running it.

    No, but when you beat him your pets get the "Lil'Destroyer's End".
