    You can distinguish the proto drakes easily.

    About the Qiraji tanks - I think that it would. Especially with the blacker nights.

    Maybe they should? Because it's something unique and prestigeous. And no cheap imitation should've get a place in current WoW.

    You can easily tell the difference between the two War Tanks as well. To claim otherwise is a little disingenuous.
    You don't even get the Black War Tank by grabbing the purple one and darkening it. You need to shift its color values closer to blue, then darken it heavily to even come remotely close to the same color.

    I'm fine with them getting not one but two unique Black Tanks, but prestige.. lmao? You mean the prestige that it has after Blizzard let people who cheesed it between TBC and WoTLK keep theirs? The prestige of bought Scarab Lord accounts?

    Speaking of prestige, have you seen what most of the gladiator mounts are? Most of the time, they're copies of currently available mounts with more armor: see, Netherdrakes and Stormdrakes. Yet Scarab Lords keep exclusive rights to a creature in any color remotely on the same spectrum as their own? Comical.

    Anyway, for argument's sake, I spent a whole minute opening photoshop to grab the purple one and darken it down. According to you, it should get me to the black one.


    Frankly, I just don't think we'll see eye-to-eye, so let's agree to disagree.

    Well, then maybe I should've checked my eyes. But my point still stands - purple(and any shade of it) should stay only for the Scarab Lords.

    Yes, they're one of the most prestigeous mounts in the game. Saying other is wrong.

    Didn't say anything about cheating/cheesing, so that argument is invalid.

    Didn't say anything about accounts that were bought also, but yes - it's like buying an old car. It's still prestigeous, even if it belonged to the other person and I personally have no problems with that.

    Why not? You can easily distinguish gladiator mounts with the un-armored/armored ones.

    Fine, it's just an opinion.

    The question is if we'll get 8.3.5 patch.

    P.S. where is 9.1 speculation thread? :P

    It'll be made once they merge the Shadowlands forum back into General.




    Anyway real reason I'm here. What the actual hell are those eye changes? I seriously hope that's a bug or their new eye glow feature is NYI. Because the way it looks now is just plain bad. That's just no glow.
    9.0 Speculation Thread #1 Leakbuster

    Finally guessed the expansion right for the first time since MoP.

    Retail - Wyrmrest Accord (A) | Classic - Bloodsail Buccaneers (A) | FFXIV - Crystal Datacenter

    According to the blue post, the "initial steps" to a new glow system with further coming. You know, the one that is linked right below the image on the news for both MMOC and WoWHead.

    I suppose they could easily change their minds at this point, but Taliesin was told there would be an 8.3.5 patch at Blizzcon by the devs. However, they were supposed to talk about some details in that patch in the deep dive panel (according to Taliesin), and they did not. So, who knows.

    I'm still hoping for a final batch of Allied Races to mirror Undead and Worgen. Or at least a confirmation for undead paladins. I'm going to be annoyed if they built up the Calia storyline for two years and nothing will come of it for another two.

    Since we're getting Vulpera/Mechagnomes in 8.3 already, say, not a .5 patch, I'm fairly certain there's another round in 8.3.5
    But your duty to Azeroth is not yet complete. More is demanded of you... a price the living cannot pay.

    has anyone seen it said anywhere, or asked at blizzcon or whatever, what the status of nazjatar is now that we've left there? did the water collapse back on it or what?

    thalyssra and jaina had control of the tidestone. idk about jaina, but i'd imagine thalyssra would very much want the water held back so old magic stuff could be studied, reliving old memories, and what-have-you.

    and i mean, letting all that water collapse would probably not be good for the ankoan and keflin. breathe underwater or not, that's a dangerous amount of water to get hit by.

    Lore wise it probably (slowly) collapsed back. Game play wise, it will always be opened.

    I wonder why they updated Uther's tomb back at the beginning of BFA too. A lot of speculation was about that being tied to Calia's return.

    Yeah, I half wondered if his tomb will play a part in SL after hearing that

    Some people have wonder how 8.3 is launching in January when it have stuff like Santa Pepe (and probably 2019 presents). But today they implemented community/guild finder from 8.3 PTR (which is bigger stuff than some toy/pet), so I guess they will add holiday stuff same way during 8.2.5.
