    The warlock shadow bolt change has to be for lower levels. If you’ve tried leveling a lock on the ptr you would know that it takes (no exaggeration) 5-6 shadow bolts to kill anything for the first few levels. I would imagine most, if not all of the changes are for the level scaling, and not endgame related.

    Yeah, again, this is most likely for leveling at lower levels, before your rotation and abilities fully change to what they are at endgame.

    "too lighthearted"

    in a game that has panda people, pet battles, and an overall cartoony art style, THIS is where the line is drawn

    I think it's a neat piece of artwork, refreshing from the boring "here's a pic of the zone"

    There is a difference between cartoony artstyle and characters on the art being barely reckognizable in terms of their racial identity.

    The first Alliance soldier.. is it a brown panda? Is it a panda with braids? Is it a dwarf with hypertrichosys? Is it Ratchet from Ratchet&Clank?

    The way the soldiers are drawn, it portrays the upcoming faction war in a comedic light, which is the opposite of how it was portrayed in the cinematic.

    The art is just bad. I know you feel the need to defend literally everything made by Blizzard, but you can let it slide just this one time.

    Pretty sure you're being facetious but that's pretty obviously a dwarf

    And there's a difference between a cartoony artstyle and a cartoony loading screen?

    You're right, being a bit dickish towards you - so my bad.

    I guess my only problem with the picture is how the soldiers are portrayed. It makes it seems like a fun race between the two groups, when they are about to start murdering each other in a few seconds. Not sure I understand the comedic angle the artist was going for, is all.

    Blizz seems to swing between grim-dark horror elements (Argus, Karazhan Crypts, Ur'zul, etc) and upbeat positive vibes, probably to cater to a bigger market

    Does it fit the overarching theme? Nah, and the characters in it could definitely be more detailed but seems they were going for a "minimalist" approach like the WoD garrison loading screens (Horde one anyway)
  1. Saar's Avatar
    Yeah that loading screen wasn't the best I've seen... they could've skipped the bad drawn ally/horde characters running towards it...

    Anyhow my guess is the patch will be released in Januari... The BIG question is: When will we get to pre order and play as allied races???

    The loading screen artwork for the Seething Shore battleground is awful.
  1. Macilento's Avatar
    Well... that loading screen if that's for the BG is legit the Worst quality loading screen ever.... so few details and out of synch with the WoW art in general.pity.
  1. Rokiar's Avatar
    The art itself isn't bad, but it certainly is an odd stylistic departure, especially for a BG. Especially given the context of this particular battleground. Makes me wonder if they really intend to use it.

    What's with the spell changes? Let's reduce this spell's damage by 70%! And then... add a passive that increases it by 70% back to where it was! What?

    Oh, thank God they changed one of the overly-edgy hairstyle names into something marginally less edgy.

    I'm not liking the new loading screen art. It just seems really out of place compared to all of the other loading screens. I don't recall seeing any other art in wow that matches that style.

    I think I have to agree. I have no idea what that is. I don't find the new loading screen art fitting.
