    The time adventure quests are a treasure.

    We even get to meet ourselves.

    These renown reward tracks make me so excited for Dragonflight!

    It's all about world content, exploration, professions, and immersion. Brilliant!

    Hey guys. I was thinking about the time skip described in the new dialogues between Lorthemar and Thalyssra/ Mathias and Genn.

    Do you think that could mean we will see Vol'jin as a Loa sooner rather than later? As well as Lakali for example (the Loa that we haven't really met yet, that was being munched on by the final boss at the Tirna Scithe dungeon).

    I do like that

    Seems the renown itself may not be account wide, but most of its rewards are.

    I don't think Lakali was ever mentioned to be Azerothian.

    C'mon, it has been 2 weeks since his initial release. It is obvious that his first model was a placeholder.
    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.

    Even then. It's a deprecated questing mob that never had anything more than the bog standard default Gnoll model. Getting a unique model is already kinda pointless unless we should expect more Hogger related content.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Interesting what could have been. Though as it would've been a mobile MMO and seeing the stuff with Diablo Immortal...
    I read the article. Some of the choices made by the company are really weird.

    I heard its codename was Neptune > which makes me think of water. Which would've actually probably been a good thing around this time or next year to release. I mean all the Aquaman stuff going on but mostly the new Avatar movie. I've been down with the aquatic scene. Probably one of the various reasons I dug BFA. Which means I wouldn't like to see it repeated in WoW so soon. Still as a spinoff if it was good enough.. I might've actually attempted to try out a mobile game.

    Then I heard about another project that got cancelled called Orbis. If it was executed properly, it might've done considerable well. Both projects.

    I just don't understand why they went with the choices they did. I heard the Arclight rumble took some heavy influences from another mobile game. I really wouldn't know. I just have no incentive to try it by looking at it. Some others might tho.

    All that aside what I gathered from different articles was that the partner has been unreliable and incompetent. Which most definitely would have some dire circumstances for the company. I wonder why they continue to partner with them if every project has rather been cut or not meeting expectations. Maybe they should focus less on outsourcing if it has such poor results. For the company and the consumers.

    Oh that's a good point, I'd forgotten about that possibility! Though there's still all the Loa we helped rescue along with Vol'jin right?

    I don't get it. Why did they create a fully unique model for him when he is dead and not relevant anymore? We have characters that are playing way bigger roles in Dragonflight that did not get their own unique models. Make it make sense.

    Because he's gonna be in the time travelling content they're making. Several maps have been added, including one called the Gnoll Wars

    Then I guess that makes him relevant at least.

    Gnoll wars was before WC1 so he was not alive back then.
    Also it currently looks like that you just quickly race through this Gnoll Wars map and don't really do anything there.

    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.
