    Male and female hyenas are visually almost indistinguishable.

    Its funny when people who know nothing assume its because the devs are lazy.
    Romance doesnt detract from a story. Its a Genre, like horror or comedy or adventure. The game was ruined when we got Horror in drustvar or nazmir. It wasnt ruined when we had funny quests. So if you think a little man on man love ruins the game, then yes you are either a homophobe or just a spoil sport that goes "ewww kissing is yucky" like a baby. Furthermore, if a character has never expressed interest in any gender, then its not proof they are straight. straight people are not the default

    I honestly still think that given how little it can do now, it would be better to merge it with enchanting. ofc DF could make both much beefier.

    Probably time constraints or something. They've shown sexual dimorphism in Gnolls with other media, so they can't just say they look the same.

    Moonguard's prepared for this for decades, Gnolls can't measure up to female Draenei.

    Honestly a very good idea. All newly added professions have kind of been handled poorly. Jewelcrafting is a shell of itself compared to what it was, same for Inscription. And I don't even wanna talk about how they completely murdered my child Archaeology.

    JC has the potential to get back to where it was. We need reliable sockets on gear, more gear (beyond neck and rings, we can have crowns and trinkets) and perhaps reconsider meta gems.

    Ooooh TBC style meta gems would be great. Loved those. Such a shame they were removed.

    (Also, I guess you could literally make your drake mount into her haha)
    Kinda odd they would turn her into a drake, she effectively has the body of a dragon teen Ager now?

    I don’t know where they had dimorphism in Gnolls but Unless it’s a actual wow media like comics or books it’s not canon to wow so if it’s in hots hearthstone or something that doesn’t actually mean any thing.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    She always had a drake model, Chromie is a young dragon.

    Using the customizeable Dragonriding mount as a model for her is a cheap way to make an unique model, while not actually modelling an unique model.

    Maybe I missed them changing it at some point but she most defiantly wasn’t a drakes in the CoS.

    Does kinda seem to be the case unless they are actually playing with time travel and the cromie in DF is younger then we have ever met her before.

    No neither have I but I wouldn’t be surprised if they exist given the amount of card they have at this point.

    Chromie does exist in Hearthstone but only in her gnome form.

    In regards to professions, I recall they had a posting some time back where they were looking to hire someone to focus specifically on professions and making them better.

    Can't for the life of me find anything about it now though.

    Well they obviously had far more than one person on them now.

    Well, what I'm thinking is that it could be the jumping-off point for further campaigns—once the territory there was reclaimed, that's just to be expected. Conversely, if it extends too far ...

    It's definitely an impressive restoration on the Alliance's part. I wonder if the further restoration of Stromgarde will be a story point going forward.

    IIRC, she's also been a Whelp before. Bronze Dragons are sort of immune to the whole "chronology" bit. She could be a Whelp in one appearance, a Drake in the next, then a Dragon.

    It's probably just a Chromie from a particular time period—keep in mind she's a Bronze Dragon, so she could simply be one from another era. There's no way of really telling which Chromie is which in her personal development because she's acting outside of traditional time.

    I wonder how many of these are dungeons and how many of these are simply wings of a particular dungeon, raid, or feature (whatever "Race Through Time" is.)
