Sometimes. Most topics quickly degrade into namecalling. (holinka)

Lore
lore question if you'll indulge me: Where does Elune rank in terms of power? Old God level? Titan level? Even higher?
Those questions are more fun to speculate about than answer. Where do you think she falls? (DaveKosak)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

MMOs often have to emphasize quantity over quality, and that usually means a pretty simple basic combat model. (OccupyGStreet)
By which I mean positioning, timing and so on have to be pretty simple. (OccupyGStreet)
They dress that up with depth, usually in the form of numbers, e.g. resistances, speed, crit, dots, and so on. (OccupyGStreet)



Legion Alpha - Demon Hunters and Nefarian
It looks like Nefarian was updated to have a Demon Hunter class call before the Alpha went down.

    Nice class call. OP ability apparently is greater than the downside of the call though. :P

    Its indeed great they still care about this kind of stuff.

    In the other hand, it's kinda weird since most of the time you will outlevel the encount and "one shot" it, and how old content raids get "irrelevant" after their expansion is over. Time-walking raids maybe? :P (And i know they did it with all new classes they added, but it still feels weird knowing how these things work out)

    I wouldn't be surprised if they had to add the class calls to keep the fight from breaking.

    DH class call, is funny!

    The prot paladin shield and sword looks delicious, although some of the models doesnt look like it can take more than 2 hit... Better suits a holy pally with all that magic flowing around.

    It's a nice nod to those who would inevitably try it out just for kicks, and you just know there would be. On that topic though, Nefarian's got a point.

    Those all look like immovable objects compared to what my tank is currently sporting (Screenshot from Wowhead):

    Warrior shields look too stale and Paladin shields look way to flashy lol

    I wish the art team would learn how to make flat, unadorned surfaces. All of the artifacts suffer from having too much going on.

    The sword doesn't change at all with the shield outside of the color? Very lame and I hope that changes otherwise I'll be mogging the sword.

    It still blows my mind that the Protection Paladin weapon is not a hammer...

    With all the damaging and utility spells with "Hammer" in the name, give the Prot Pallies the Holy "Silver Hand" and give the Holy ones some kind of mace.


    A BFHammer doesn't really seem normal to be swung around with a book in the other hand...

    Those Paladin shields are absolutely gorgeous and really put the Warrior shields to shame. Seriously considering rerolling from Prot Warrior to Prot Pally just to be able to use these.

    DH class call is hilarious and actually pretty inventive. I had wondered if for a few brief moments, Nef might just take away their ability to double jump, while cackling maniacally...

    The pally sword just stays the same throughout?

    Holy shit. Blizzard really wants all Ret Paladins to go tank. Talents look far more juicy (as of now) and that artifact looks much better than Welfarebringer.

    I hope that Prot Paladin sword can back-sheathe, because I'm going to transmog it if it's on my hip. I hate hip weapons.

    I love everything about the paladin shield and wish the damn warrior one was half as awesome! Every artifact should be like the Paladin shield!

    that class call...

    watching video and I thought something broke. paused it it saw Nef's text. good shit Blizzard

    Well, paladins use magic, so the "flashy things" on a shield do make some sense. And hammers only fit Human and Dwarf paladins, also Tauren. Draenei and Blood Elves should wield swords. :3

    Paladin Artifact looks sexy AF. Let's just hope the important part, the abilities, are as delicous.

    While it probably doesn't have anything to do with DH, a class hall where Nefarian was is a pretty cool idea. Certainly better than ones that are making it in (coughRogueSewerscough).
