    I mean, I am known to sometimes be something of a petty b*tch.
    And I stand by that.

    Did we discover anything else in the scaleface code or did it end at the dracthyr thing?

    People love Alleria. The Community has made that clear. We see the numbers and we see that Void elves are the most played allied race. People like Alleria because she is one of the few WC characters who never flip-flops, and people like Alleria and Turalyon because they are one of the few and truly decent couples in Warcraft, with no toxicity.

    The base game experience got a lot better. if you can wait till next expansion you will get to first see it with engine updates. With Hrothgar still horribly butchered, a lot of people are hopiuming for at least the female option during 6.x. So I would wait another expac if you haven't really played it much

Absolutely was already planning on giving it another shot at some point anyway but said PvP might make that sooner rather than later.
    I haven't tried it yet, but everyone is having blast.

    They can also be stealthy or good at mindrape. Or maybe both. Nosferatu in Vampire the Masquerade are about as atttractive as Vanilla character models, yet they are super popular.

A thing in which I was not interested at all, and I ended up spending a lot of time into.

    WoW need that kind of stuff! WoW does not need to (and cannot) compete with FFXIV'S story, but in how welcoming it is to the player and how friendly and respectful with their time, they should practically copy everything.


    So yes, make everything account wide, is about time. I want to play any character whenever I want with the progress that I have already made with other character. I think that all of us will want to play more with a system like that.
    Pretty much this. No need to try being another FFXIV. That would fail like all the games that tried to simply be another WoW.
    But professions and respect for time is something it does really really well.

    By the way 9.X Speculation thread, I know you are trying to make me salty, but I would not be annoyed one bit if the Ren'dorei were ignored once again. One bit. Surely they would be ignored because Blizzard deemed it acceptable to feature them in 11.0 instead. I am sure of this. So I would take it and move on with my theories and speculation.

    It's not surprising. Half of each faction were ignored even before Blizzard doubled the playable races; what chance do Allied Races have, given they step on existing races' thematic toes?

    Nah, just that and that it may be a troll thing, it redirects us to some kind of dragon thingy that looks like a pokemon

    Nah, that's a fairly recent trend. Didn't mention Twilight for nothing there. Orlok is even known specificially for being ugly... and Venthyr are modeled in no small part after him.

    That's why we're talking about them. We're the Duck Awareness Brigade.

    Nope, that is why every couple of months they come up in a discussion. The (unused?) frog duck model is the closest

    Not really, we're discussing Bingo, ducks and why vampires aren't necessarily pretty

    IF blizz don't make the shadowlands allied races will be a big miss opportunity, the models are all done and ready, the point of the system was to milky people on that.

    It doesn't need to be all covenants but the venthyr and the night fae should be playable

    I'm conflicted about that: on one hand, the races look good and cool, on the other, I don't want to see them running around in Azeroth

    We might not get the races themselves, but counterparts like satyr.
    If we do, though, I'd like the reasoning being that they're trying to keep the faction war going specifically because all the death means more anima.

    The issue with covenant ARs is that Blizzard would need to make an AR for each covenant, and additionally make all of them neutral.
    Spending time with a specific covenant just to not get anything is bad. And spending all that time and for the reward to be unusable is even worse. It would be the Legion ARs, just several times worse as you cannot even realistically make the race-based argument of LF Draenei or HM Tauren.
    The world revamp dream will never die!
