    I'm really excited to see the in game models of the primal incarnate drakes, they could easily take inspiration from them for an empowered Galakrond - some of my favourite lore also!

    No comment. This is just ridiculous (ok so I did comment).

    What? I look at mmo-champion from time to time. Now, that alpha might be right around the corner, I check it like an addict every 15 minutes or so. If that's not defining hype, I have no idea what does. And here you come, trying to debate now whether the hype is genuine or some sort of agenda - what would that even mean lol? Not to mention you came here to say it's cringe people geek out for alpha news. Well, it's cringe to come and put some random negative jibberish in the first place.

    Don't feed the trolls everyone

    I've just had a realisation that if streamers get alpha today, they're probably going to speedrun through Evoker customisation and I want an hour long in-depth video about how many colour combinations I can have

    Guys, just ignore people that always question such things.
    Let's all be excited and see what comes next!

    Either way it's going to be interesting. <3

    Focus feedback? That's not going to happen, someone who plays hunter, priest, paladin, will not give you feedback on shaman, druid, mage if those are the classes available. A die-hard arms warrior will not give you feedback on fury. You virtually just stop any feedback at all on focused channels. If there is any datamineable content for a class present, then you'd run into severe speculation cluttering all forums - harming the actual feedback.

    In the past devs usually cycled through their assigned classes, work on feedback (maybe), and make changes. Then swap to another class and do something with the feedback. The thing is, why delay classes that are ready to generate feedback for this? If changes are planned, the classes are not ready. If no changes are planned until feedback, the classes are ready.

    There is only one reason for not all classes being present: They're not ready. That means we have at most 4 months for class and talent testing. Unless they changed something, we also know that ~1 month before pre-patch goes live class changes stopped (Ion even talked about that in this interview: https://www.mmo-champion.com/content...le-for-Azeroth). So while we have 5 months until the end of the year, you can effectively substract 2 weeks of pre-patch and 1 month of no more changes. That's 3.5 months of testing and feedback. Releasing classes over the course of a month is, well, pretty bad.
    That's a fair take. Still, I wouldn't be concerned about the state of the rest of classes, obviously in the context of unconfirmed info regarding only 5 classes being available at start.

    But I totally grant you that.

    Damn you have a bad dream or what? I'm thinking you're the one with the agenda....come bash the most positive and bubbly person in here and try to make yourself look "good"? Backfiring in your face.....move along Debbie Downer.

    So, I wasn’t entirely wrong (mixed up the values). https://twitter.com/towelthetank/sta...rSgTlJKpoeggzw

    “9:00 a.m. PST is a good time”. This would mean 12:00 p.m. est. (which is where I got my 00:00 from EST timing). Like I said, wasn’t sober last night.

    Also, lines up with MrGM’s stream starting at this same time (6 p.m. BST).

    The NDA people have some good stuff to show us today. Be ready for 9 a.m. PST!

  15. #62275
    So I finally decide to go to bed at 06.30 in the morning because no way Blizzard does anything that late right, and they then push a new build half an hour later? Just my luck. Anyway, happy Alpha day!

    Galakrond as a raid boss sounds pretty sick tbh. Raid mechanics have improved significantly since Cataclysm, so I can imagine some pretty fun boss phases given Galakrond's abilities.

    And what evidence do we have that he will be a raid boss?

    I mean he was stood in the heart chamber, I think that was almost instantly considered fake!

    Also the Blizzard CS EU just deleted this tweet "‼️ Reminder! Customer Support is unable to provide beta access. If you'd like to participate in any upcoming beta tests, make sure to indicate your interest by opting in through the website!"

    Galakrond is basically the lynchpin for all dragon related content.
    Dragons? He is a giant dragon.
    Dragon civil war? Those who fight the good dragons worship him.
    Dragons and titans/watchers? Galakrond is the reason they met to begin with.
    Infinite Dragonflight? Go back in time and defeat Galakrond again to prevent Bronze Dragonflight.
    Dragons and cosmic stuff? We still don't know why Galakrond went insane, or why he could ressurect the dead. Or for that matter why he was slowly turning into a modern dragon isntead of a protodragon.

    Basically every single dragon related storyline in some way circles back to Galakrond, so it's obvious that a dragon themed expansion should focus on him in some way, especially when we already know there are primal dragons who worship him, and the storyline around Tyr is heavily centered around Galakrond.
