If there were no racials, Humans would still be by far the most popular class on the Alliance. (holinka)

Hunter (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Snake Trap is really only used for Entrapment anyway
Nope.I use it every fight for the various poisons it does especially the all important slow poison.
Do you really need two different traps to slow enemies? (Celestalon)

No scatter shot is not gone.We tried traps activating instantly.Warriors still will charge over them.
Warriors will not charge over traps. (Celestalon)
You promise?Because right now Ive seen hundreds of players just cruise right over them.Even in direct los.
They're made with different tech now. (Celestalon)

Mage (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Since Fire scales much better then all other specs, devs had to nerf it every major patch to get it back in line
It doesn't necessarily have to scale better than other specs. We have one change coming that helps prop it up at early gear levels. (Celestalon)

Paladin (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Hoping for an answer. I <3 Arc Torrent on my healadin for the mana return. Still happen in WoD? Or all pally specs getting HP?
All Paladins get Holy Power instead of Mana. Holy Power will be more valuable, though. (Celestalon)
No more mana for paladins, inc holy? Very big change! Moving MW to energy also? Or did I read too much into that?
You misread. This is talking about Arcane Torrent, the Blood Elf Racial. (Celestalon)
Sir celestalon, will it still do aoe silence or will it just be a resource gain?
Still does that. (Celestalon)

Anyway you could talk about design philosophy when approaching Retribution in WoD?
Anything in particular? Generally planning polish and tuning, but no major revision. Happy with Ret design, minus a couple tweaks. (Celestalon)

Rogue (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
rogues are very dependant of crit, any buff for them in wod?
It's folly to ask for buffs when fixating on one specific change without considering all of the other changes coming. (holinka)

Is paralytic poison gone, or did it go baseline?
It is gone in Warlords. (holinka)

Shaman (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
Any plans on taking a look at Windfury Weapon in WoD? lots of us feel it's lost it's wow factor (scuse the pun) in recent expacs
We're investigating whether we can take the cooldown off it (but still not proc off itself). No promises though. (Celestalon)

Warlock (Forums / Skills / WoD Talent Calculator)
so will u also make arcane torrent more valuabke to warlocks? Mana useless, need either burning ember soul shard or demonic fury
A whole soul shard is too much, which is a problem. (Celestalon)
whats about other specs. Half a burning ember or 100 demonic fury doesnt seem like a problem
Problem is consistency. (Celestalon)
but u can see how mana is useless for lock? Love belfs but turn between changing race :-S trolls an orcs look more appealing
BElf still gives 1% Crit, so not useless. (Celestalon)

Also, with valor/justice gone, what's going to be the carrot to get people to complete groups in WoD?
We'll have more info in weeks ahead, but we agree it's important that people are incentivized to not bail mid-run. (WatcherDev)

cata healing changes. with all the changes happening with healing, is SoO going to be reduced burst damage output? cont
SoO will be adjusted to suit any class changes. It won't be more difficult in 6.0. (WatcherDev)

in 6.0 will SoO go to the new raiding system? Norm and Hero flex specifically
Yes, it will. (WatcherDev)

What's the word on Mythic trash? I feel it would add a lot of immersion to the dungeons. Still have nightmares of AQ trash.
No more dynamic difficulty swapping means that raids will have Mythic trash. And yes, that means Mythic trash loot. (WatcherDev)

running dungeons then converting JP to honor is faster than queueing bgs... can u fix that
We did one wave of buffs to honor rate. We may do another based on what we see. (holinka)

By 'mean' you mean 'poorly designed,' right?
World PvP is deliberately unstructured & emergent. If you want a fair fight, we have instances (holinka)

With the expansion coming on december and the season ending in 20 weeks what are we going to do during this big gap without arenas?
We have made no announcement about when the season will end or when the game will be released. You're making bad assumptions. (holinka)
I was just assuming the worst case scenario. Should we expect a 30+ weeks season, like s11?
sorry, we don't comment/speculate on the length of a season. (holinka)

How does the team feel about the new arena ladder? I kinda miss teams because I liked starting fresh on a new charter. What's yours
We're quite happy with the change. In general it feels like an improvement. (holinka)

I've seen that extremely rarely, and always found that flying away and coming back solved it. Sorry! (Celestalon)
We cant fly in warlord's how do we solve issues like this.
A) We don't intend to have bugs like that. B) I just said 'fly' as that's what's common now. 'Ride' does the same thing. (Celestalon)

    We're getting TWO RAIDS at launch, apparently (Second one to be gated and not available till later)... at least, according to some posts I've seen people make. We're getting a new Open World PvP Zone. Garrisons, which some people may not like, is still new content, far outstripping the farm in size, scope and utility. That right there is superior to MoPs launch, and there's no reason to think we'd be getting less from future patches.
    Also, less dungeons. Only 3 while leveling from 90 to 100. Then 3 for max level. You may call Outland redesigned but I'll call it for what it is, rehashed crap that is not worth the $49.99. Redesigning the entire vanilla word was barely passable. Now we are getting even less and paying for more. I haven't even touched on what kind of mindless daily grind the garrisons will be if you like to play alts.
