    You should do it in the wait for 10.0. I'm still working on the first expansion but it's really good. Does some things better than wow some worse, but overall if you like story content or wacky stuff that just exists for fun it's worth it.

    I would be fine with a whole revamp everyone's expansion no new zones tbh.
    If we get something that has a ranged spec and a healing spec, I'm gucci. If it's dragon-based I'd also like a tank spec or a Dragoon-esque Melee spec, but I'll mainly be focused on whatever cool new healing spec we get anyway. Please please please

    Edit: Also, the Venthyr are supposed to be "unattractive" vampires, they're literally designed like Nosferatu

    I definitely think she will have some presence. Just not a huge one.

    Nope, it isn't. There are many different kinds of vampire in mythology and folklore. The Penanggalan and lilitu are particularly interesting. I like all vampires, whether beautiful or "ugly." Count Orlok sort of resembles the Abhartach of Celtic Folklore too.

    I find it interesting that Nosferatu, possibly the earliest film featuring vampires, was lost for sometime because of the story essentially plagiarized Bram Stoker's Dracula and his widow wasn't happy about that one bit.

    Most likely common inspiration.

    Count Orlok is pretty much the proto-Venthyr.

    Even the hands look the same.

    Nosferatu is the name of the movie. The vampire is Orlok.

    EDIT: Seriously, which one would you choose:

    - 1 fully functioning car that has ALL the features it needs.

    OR

    - 4 micro-cars: 1 has a steering wheel, 1 has brakes, 1 has a radio, and 1 has an extra seat at the back.
    I agree 1 4 spec class is better but 4 1 spec classes would not be lazy. That would take a lot more work than 1 class. 2 to 3 times the work.

    - What's the connection between Eonar, Elune, and Elunaria? Why are there dragons on Elunaria? And why does Eonar, a Titan of the Pantheon of Order, have so much control over Life (which is its own cosmic force)?
    - Is Draconic really the language used by the cosmic force of Life? And if so, why?
    - What are the real origins of the dragons? The current understanding that they "evolved from elementals" feels like a cop-out that is likely to get retconned.
    - Who is the Earth Mother really? Is it Eonar? Azeroth? Or someone else?
    an'she is likely a member of the pantheon of life
    Eonar might be another sister of Elune similar to the Winter Queen im assuming each pantheon has a member from a different cosmic force on it or they have a connection to a different force and Elune along with the pantheon of order were needed to make aspects which makes you wonder what were all of their powers and do their powers have other possibilities like an aspect of death or an aspect of fel??
    I wouldnt say its the language used by life but likely a language created by the first ones who likely have a connection to dragons
    Based on the requirement for the powers of life&death&order to make aspects one could say they were created by the mixing of multiple forces
    i think the earth mother is Azeroth

    I know a lot of people like XIV’s “be any class!” thing but... I don’t think it’s needed.
    It's not needed but if it's not gonna exist they need to expand the amount of stuff that's account wide.

    Are you really? Speaking of MS, I can't wait to hear actual news on Fable.

    Back on track: I can't wait for Tuesday. I'm actually fucking excited about the next expansion as much as I'm trying to tamp down my expectations.

    PS: I think most of us here know that you wouldn't post the kind of crap, the Thing spouts. You're too likeable apparently, that's inspired our denizen, rapidly devolving troglodyte to try and impersonate you.

    @Scaleface Thanks for promoting discussion with your puzzle. I still think you're full of shit, but you're a pretty cool due and I'd be glad to be wrong.

    So I’ve heard about some Evoker leak that came from here? What is the validity of it? Any other interesting leaks I missed?

  13. #43033
    So let's entertain what an Evoker even is beyond just the name if such a thing were to be accurate.

    Is it someone that draws off the power of the dragons themselves? Is it a Life-oriented class that is using the same empowerments that the Titans utilized, making the class itself a sort of "soft" player version of effectively playing an Aspect?

    It just seems like a strange choice compared to Dragonsworn or Dragon____ in any case. But perhaps it's the same idea in concept.

    I mean like... the exact facial features. Not just rough inspiration.

    Well that’s a rather large problem; without a major point of difference (like draconic transformation) we just have another spellcaster. There really isn’t much left magic-wise to create unique and interesting vspecs.

  16. #43036
    Not to derail but is there a post somewhere with all the current leaks linked? Like a hub of all the leaks?

    This is the real question what would the evoker do? I mean if scaleface's leak has any credibility, it seems like he was saying the race has the draconic transformation/meta form.

    I would assume it to be ‘Evoking’ the power of the Aspects. Perhaps three specs based off of the different flights. Red for healing black for DPS….or whatever.
