    lol 1 hour to 3 hour 15 min

    wtf
    Well they are going all out this year with 9.0, Diablo 4, OW2 and possibly another surprise so might as well get as many people to see it as they can.

    Tank, healer and dps. DPS uses engineering stuff to deal dmg, bombs, robots, guns. Healers use bots and healing rays. Tank summons a Mech DVA-style.

    According to the leak, the "Ghostbuster" aspect is only in the DPS spec.

    you can't just make a character bounce between being undead and not undead, that's just terrible. it'd be like if your forsaken shadow priest turned into a living human for holy spec.
    Yeah, I know. That's why it's a problem implementing it at all. Because it's specific to the Undead, more specifically, Undead Elf Rangers (and Nathanos until recently where a few more undead humans have been learning). But if they're going to change the lore and open it up to more classes, I don't get why people think they wouldn't just change the lore to open it up as a spec. Instead of having to be undead, it's just a hunter who chose to forsake nature and find a more shadowy means to fulfill their end.

    It's like saying that Arthas in WC3 wasn't the Lich King or that Illidan was a Demon Hunter before becoming a full Demon. Also the players have toned down versions for lore and gameplay reasons, not less powers overall.

    I could see a Dark Ranger doing a "cloud of death" like the BfA cinematic for AoE damage, but not a super strong one that one-shot everything. I could potentially see them reanimating but not armies like the DK doesn't.

    It is all a matter of scale.

    Ercaro, El Caro.... why do I keep seeing Antonio Banderas before my inner eye when I read that. Walking away from an explosion with a guitar in his hand

    So when the Frozen Throne explodes I fully expect to see El Caro walking away with a slight smirk now

    Think it makes more sense to replace sub, it's already kinda dark and could adopt some ranged attacks on top of the other dark shit they do.

    Yeah. It would help a lot. It could be the third mail class to even things out, it could give mail class a tank/healer spec to balance that out, they could easily allow them to wield ranged weaponry (particularly guns) which would give a 2nd class to that to balance that out. Like, they fit so perfectly in the niches we are lacking.

    There's this common trope on the interwebs that says a man who eats a lot of soy (which contains a certain type of estrogen) is less manly than other men. It's all based on fake news and 0 knowledge about estrogen.

    Exactly, part of it might be to recoup from last years blizzcon, but hey if this becomes the new norm I will not complain!

    the banshee form shadow cloud thingy will definitely be a DPS CD like metaphorasis.

    It does thematically maybe feel more similar, but the whole thing is that lorewise Dark Ranger is a hunter. It would be just as simple for a hunter to get a shadow theme than to add some ranged attacks to subtlety. Not to mention, that it's also a bit about crippling and the mobility. Dark Rangers are stealth-like as they slip around the battlefield, but not actual stealth. Interestingly enough, that would probably be more like Wardens.

    And the skill Sylvanas had was literally just a blast of death that insta-killed Saurfang. Sorry, you're not getting anything close to that. You'd be getting a shadowbolt maybe, but that, hell no.

    Not sure about the type. Just a regular house cat. He was also birthed into this household ~1.5 years ago (we got his mom while she was a kitten and she got prego pretty early since she likes to go outdoors, still fine and part of our family). I was the "nurse" during birth
