    These are most likely Dragon Aspect colored. Not sure why there's two shades of blue there tho.

    Purple-blue is just the general section of the city where all the player stuff is, pretty sure. It's also where a lot of Wrathion's Blacktalon forces hang out.

    So... anyone catch these under string changes yet?

    Why would they separate Drac'thyr and Evoker if they're the same thing? Why would one get the Evoker popup as opposed to the Drac'thyr popup and vice versa? Am I looking too far into this or am I being an idiot?

    Because Blizzard has been coding games long enough to build in some level of future proofing?
    Really not hard. They are one and same today, but they may not be in the future. And you don't want to have to dig around years old code to fix issues that arise if they are no longer one and the same.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    One for when you click Dracthyr in character creation but already have one, one for when you click Evoker but already have one.

    I don't feel like it erodes its distinct class identity, I think in fact it expands it in an interesting way by having more choice bundled into one race.

    And then they 180 that decision in the expansion after it and rebirth her anyways.

    Christ in Hell, Blizz doesn't write stories, they coinflip stories.
    Comics have been soing the same thing for 70 years.

    I dont see what the big deal is. The big deal is she died. Not that she is dead.

    Not sure if you ever died but its really traumatic, and not just for you. No one is going to be ok with dying juat because it doesnt stick. It hurts, its violating it takes power from you and it stresses out your loved ones. And thata still only if u know you CAN come back
    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

    It diminishes both the class and race identity by fighting in the visage form. You're not a Blood Elf or Human that can transform into a dragon, you're a dragon that takes the appearance of a mortal race. There's 0 reason to ever fight in the visage form when you can transform into a literal dragon.

    Which is why comic stories are trash.

    The darker shade is more so just regular Draconic colors (in general stuff maybe), and light blue is the Blue flight.

    Yeah. The Black flight area also has their own colors too.

    And you're right. Those are for each flight.

    New Hogger.

    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.

    You are trying to glyph the class into being a glorified demon hunter. Just regular people that have a dragon (read: demon) inside them and switch into a hybrid form for CDs. How is copying another classes' gimmick 1:1 not eroding class identity?

    You are either way. It isnt a unique idea being locked to a form in combat is wogen. Not being able to transmog is a druid thing. Both are not really well liked aspects.

    That dressing room pose is so horrible for showing off the model, damn.

    As iconic as Hogger is, it still feels weird to give a unique model to what amounts to a deprecated dungeon boss.

    Is it a unique model or the new model with the right customization and armor?

    It looks somewhat unique, though might just be a variant of the model designed to be more faithful to the original that they can use in older content.

    Going by what happened to MM who is similarly bare bones, they will scrounge for any old ability that even remotely fits the playstyle, and possible focus on a single secondary stat like haste to gives buffs for.
