    Its very simple... it was time for gnolls to be updated, because they are relevant in the dragon isles.. so lets update hogger as well since well... hes a gnoll.

    Thats it...

It would have far less frames since it is a faster attack and it would be in constant motion while Eyebeam maintains a sequence throughout the channel. Cutting frames to add the quick shifts in and out while still fitting an animation that is meant to MATCH the cast/GCD of the ability is a different beast. There are no extraneous or repeating frames you can just replace. You'd have to change the speed or cut into the duration of the actual animation. Both are problematic since the first would make your motions spastic and the latter would either sacrifice detail or sacrifice responsiveness.

    Blizzard does an excellent job creating responsive animations. The last thing we need is for our characters to look like someone from ESO (or Diablo Immortal . . .) stuttering through their frames like a shonen filler episode with no animation budget.

    You need to make the check both when a class is picked AND when a race is picked since you can pick EITHER first during character creation. It's not that deep.

    The thing is, Dragonspawn are sworn to their flights. Drac'thyr are the successful version of the chromatic experience, infused with the power of all flights. By necessity whatever the dragon class would be, it had to be chromatic. Now we could find a batch of chromatic dragonspawn eggs together with Chromatus . . .
    Every single flight has these guards in different colors. They just look cooler so I want them as an allied race.

    I just dont like them geckos, these brutes would spark my interrest more, thats why.

    Also it currently looks like that you just quickly race through this Gnoll Wars map and don't really do anything there.
    Oh, sorry you are right.
    Though I'm sure either he's gonna show up in some capacity somehow. That or it was not resource intensive to give him a new model having had done the new gnoll models. Just my speculation.

    Nothing in the current build right now right?
    Inb4 female voice sounds like Sinestra and Sindragosa.

    I’d kill for Theralion’s old voice in Dracthyr.

    I was busy with Hearthstone stuff the past few days, so hadn't really looked into current alpha patch beyond checking it wasn't Warlock up for testing.

    Looked around a little now, but since I'm busy and I don;t play Warrior, I think I'll concentrate on other stuff this week and prepare for the inevitable Warlock release week when I'll want to do ALL THE THINGS.

    Hopefully they did a smaller area and smaller patch this week cause of obvious distractions with Season 4 launch and Hearthstone launch already stressing probably everyone from devs to ops. So HOPEFULLY that means a big meaty patch next Tuesday (with Warlocks) to make up for it.

    I cannot thank you enough for making me aware this exists. But now I am disappointed they didn't use this in the live game.

    the build wasnt really small its just on the schedule
    i guess there was no dungeon but i imagine the next dungeon is tied to the third leveling zone and they dont wanna spoil the story

    Ooooof, the memories. Either overreacting dragon on drugs, or annoyed aunt dragon.

    Reminds me a lot of the HIM in "The Power Puff Girls" or Mr.Devil from "Cow and Chicken". Those were pretty fun bad guys.

    The Dracthyr voices should be gender neutral.

    It's a bit weird, former winged Dragonspawn don't seem to have wings anymore.
