    I am quite pleased with what I've seen so far....think it looks great. I'm not real sure if I'll play a dracthyr long term though. Never been into healing and my main has been a bm hunter for the last 100 years or so, the dps dracthyr might be hard to get used to. I will however make one and check it out...who knows? Dragon riding looks like so much fun...can't wait! Well I have to but you know what I mean

    I'm more into this expansion than I thought I was gonna be. I'm completely sold on dracthyr.

    It'll be one of those things players complain from today untill well after launch and Blizz will finally fix it in 10.3 (or 10.2 if the expansion is cut short again).

    That's a very good idea!

    Sorry Neltharion is back? Or a threat related to him?

    Grimtotem boss in the primalist raid.

    Nothing much else jumps out at me at present though. Nothing familiar anyway.

    Neltharion found a threat underneath The Forbidden Reaches which is why he made the Drac'thyr happen and basically the Drac'thyr were made to destroy this threat underneath it.

    10.1 having a map that was tagged with not being revealed until 10.1 and it being a dungeon indicate that it might mean we have a Dungeon and a Raid for 10.1 major patch.
    I no longer reply to quotations beyond if you're asking a genuine question or have a non-confrontational stance.

    Nihil.

    The cinematic shows it: They were hidden during War of the Ancients (Legion's first Invasion) at the literal height of the Kaldorei Empire's power.

    Yeah I think elves had seem some dragons on Kalimdor or even on Dragon Isles at that point.

    There's (probably) an infinite Dragonflight in Uldaman

    I should specify, I was focusing on the raid, not dungeons at that point.

    Dragon Isles weren't part of Kalimdor. The cinematic shows the first Legion Invasion happening other side of the sea as they hide the Isles away.

    That would make sense. The mantis things are likely taken from the early concept art of the Mantid, so might be proto-mantid or some other Aqir offshoot, tying it all back to the Old Gods.

    Jesus poor deathwing just couldn't get away from those tentacled bastards.

    Old God stuff would interesting considering that they're all basically dead

    Holy shit man Dragon Riding looks so fun and FAST!

    The base lvl which is what Dracthyr use is like twice as fast as normal flying mounts. Imagine how fast it will be when leveled to max.

    Shame you can't use it in old zones. It would make old flying mounts obsolete.

  14. #62794
    I wasn't sold on Dracthyr at all when they first got announced, but now I love them. Their customizations are incredible.

    Is there a summary of Towelie's interview with ion?

    Damn, people who look at Dragon Riding and the only opinion they have is "it's shit" have absolutely no idea what a good thing is even if it slapped them in the face.

    And you are basically describing the opposite end of the spectrum. It really isn't anything all that amazing. It is basically the brewfest ram race but in the air. Don't get me wrong it will still be an interesting addition to the game but both sides should be tempered.

    I am unbelievably disappointed that dracthyr are just elves/humans with a druid form, i'm still gonna try it, i hope the gameplay can carry it

    It's the Brewfest ram race except there are several variants per zone, it's more interractive, and unlike the ram race it's using skills you would want to learn to become more efficient at using flying in the open world.
    So really quite a bit different from ram racing.

    Also, given there are achievements becoming good at dragonriding has tangible benefits to itself, as opposed to Ram Racing being one minigame among many that gives Brewfest rewards.
