    A legend when the lore you've provided also says they all died. Weird isn't that? It doesn't matter though since they are not elementals but titan-forged. Chronicles makes perfectly clear that Dreanor was unique in that Elementals didn't shape the early planet. Plant life did. Plants that worried a Titan so much he created constructs to defeat and destroy it.

    You don't care about lore because you keep ignoring the lore that states the Dreanor elementals were made incorporeal by the high amounts of spirit. As long as you keep arguing a point that contradicts that you are ignoring lore.

    It's only a contradiction if you think chronicles ends with page 12 and that all the pages after that don't exist.

    Maybe this has something to do with the gnoll war which map they datamined

    I mean I guess from the perspective of someone living IN Azeroth you're looking at a giant carnivorous reptile with a history of manipulation and almost destroying the world, but it seems weird these responses seem almost more hostile than the initial welcoming to Death Knights and Demon Hunters despite them being way worse on a cosmic-powers sense than just dragons.

    Maybe there'll be some extra context to come out of the Dracthyr starter zone we're lacking.
    They're also the result of Deathwing's work (though back when he was Neltharion, I guess). SHouldn't be surprising that the Alliance is wary of anything involving Deathwing.

    So anybody know if an account still flagged for SL beta is less or more likely to get DF beta??

    Also while we know we are fighting in the prison of the primal dragons it seems like we won't be fighting them so we might lose...which is an awesome idea because they are equivalent to powered up aspects of which we have none until that weird moon thing

    I'll be very mad if they made a bunch of new Elwynn assets only to use it for an instance of the actual zone.

    I'm thinking it will be a later feature like the murloc northrend map
    Think torghast but a different time line

    It doesn't give you a foot up if that's what you want to know. Blizzard I'm sure doesn't give brownie points for each one you're in. I've had beta for all but 2 and that includes 1 alpha but nothing for the last 2 expansions.

    Well, guess there's your incentive to make your Evokers go Horde.
    Well, DK's had much worse reaction, but it only lasted a whole 5 min. SW citizens reaction is logical, and it is a nice peace of world building.

    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    The way Turalyon talks to Shaw seems really authoritarian with some low-key racist vibes. It's one thing to be cautious, but to intentionally develop ways to out dragons is scary. Tbf what can you expect from a guy who practices torture during interrogations of ordinary civilians?

    To be honest this time expansion is so close that I don't even want Beta. Still has some goals left for SL and I usually don't play much/at all few months before release.

    Only thing left in SL for me is making the money to stockpile WoW tokens, I'm at 3 months no cost, aiming for half a year by pre-patch when they desiccate money-making from covenant stuff.

    Will there be a baby green protodrake that we will wait for ever to hatch from an egg once per week?

    This is nonsense. You have to fight and move all the damn time. That doesn't change just because you can move in one more dimension.

    It's a bit sad that Archaedas doesn't seem to be relevant in the Uldaman revamp.

    I hoped we'd reactivate him.

    He is supposedly already active according to one of the books, so might be that we do all the relevant stuff with him before and after the dungeon, or even have him as our guide during.
    Unless of course we already have the voicelines, but I doubt that.
    The world revamp dream will never die!
