Vanilla PVP set and Transmog
Thanks for the info. 1 Small addition. Hunter Alliance transmog on my shaman. Its mail, but i cant transmog to it because its limited to hunter class. Will the Hunter transmog be avalable for me as well? Let me live the dream of the Golden Shaman
As it stands, this won't be possible as a Shaman can't equip gear with the Hunter class restriction. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Those are solved other ways. This change doesn't affect that anyway. Was HP-based, now AP-based. Neither vary by inc dmg. (Celestalon)

.Sorry, Could you please switch the BrM and Guardian crit passive?
Brewmaster already has a stat that gives avoidance. (Celestalon)

Druid (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
can you tell me if current lunar strike animation is a placeholder? (since it's the same animation of stellar flare)
Not placeholder; those are different visuals. (Celestalon)

Monk (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator / Artifact Calculator / PvP Talent Calculator)
if a monk talents into mistwalk, is it intended to replace transcendence?
Yes. (Celestalon)

PvE
Will there be a dmg/health bonus for MoP soloing similar to Cata/wrath etc? Just curious if that's in the works.
The existing bonuses are because Wrath/Cata items were squished; MoP items weren't. If we did another squish, we'd add a MoP bonus. (WatcherDev)

Misc
Ya know, Sporebats are one of my favorite creatures we've ever made. Super interesting, thematic, animations are iconic, and great cuddlers. (Celestalon)

Patch 1.27a is aimed at enabling this legacy title to run smoothly on contemporary operating systems, and the client now has improved compatibility with Windows 7 and above and Mac OS X. Take a look at the Warcraft III forum post for more information on the patch, and head over to the Battle.net Shop to grab your digital copy of the game.

We also released a similar patch for Diablo II. You can find more details on patch 1.14a on the Diablo II forum, and get your copy here.

Further updates are planned for both Diablo II and Warcraft III in the future, as we keep working behind the scenes to make sure you continue to have a great gaming experience. Details will be available as development progresses. Thank you for continuing to play these classic games!

    Not feeling the typography being used on the Warcraft character posters one bit. Looks like something that should be on a superhero TV series like Flash or Daredevil, and it clashes pretty poorly with the font of the official logo (which looks good). Are they trying to distance it from being cheesy, stereotypical high-fantasy?

    Garona looks like complete shit. They picked up a random homeless black woman and put some green paint on her.

    Instead of oversized bobbers I would kill to have the fishing ability toggle between casting the line and reeling it in.

    First of all, she's a well known actress, and second, GARONA ISN'T FULL ORC, she is half orc, half draenei, and made to look more human by Gul'dan, though in the movie I think they just say she's half orc, half human.

    IMHO, that's the problem with WoW now, it's all about the mounts, toys, and pets. So for me, someone who doesn't care much for hoarding things, cept maybe gold, the game is pointless.

    You'd think Llothien Prowler would make a better name for the spider mount, eh?

    The Resident Evil movies managed to squeeze out quite a few sequels, so that does not negate the prospect of a W2 movie.

    This would definitely make it more relaxing to fish.

    99% sure it will be the herb mount , almost all profs have datamined mounts now , and there was something called fox in the datamines ( it was a herb tho if i remember correctly but i mean what are the chances)

    the real question is tho why is it on frontpage again? that mount has been shown months ago...

    Fox <3

    Good to see that I'm not the only one enjoying it.

    Still disappointed Blizzard is promoting animal cruelty with the fox (among some of the other mounts). What are the "reins" attached to? They just sit against the neck. Are they bolted to the poor thing's head/neck? At least add a collar or something. >_< If it's just going to float there, may as well not have it there. It's unnecessary clutter. Unless the fox flies, I'm not taking magic as the answer on why the "reins" just float there. The "reins" aren't even functional since they're too thick to really be of use and too short. They're just there for clutter.

    With the fishing bobber, find it funny I asked Blizzard about those last year and now they're adding in quite a few. Would be nice if the bobbers were attachable like fishing lines to the rod so are permanent rather than a buff like lures. Issue would be the fishing line playing nice with the bobber, but Blizzard can make the two stack or have bobbers that give additional fishing, too.

    Fox mount, my personal guess, is a rare herbalism mount.

    Is the Twitter link broken or did he delete that tweet regarding the Lunar Strike animation?
