    Turns out all he needed to get up the hill was the view boost of covering a new expan because blizzard response of trying to down play and avoid responsibility as well as opposing treating there employees better hasn’t changed.

    Do you not know what "the straw that breaks the camel's back" means? The idea that he stopped covering wow out of some moral stance is a straight up lie. You took 10 seconds out of a 22 minute video and ignored the other 21 minutes about how bad the game is.

    We genuinely don't even know whether the visits will come with interview content. It is highly likely based on how prolific this has become with the Castle Marketing and Preach and Yogscast playing next week.

    I think the whole villification of Content Creators has always been pretty weird because it showcases a critical lack of understanding that they are kind of a necessity since Blizzard plays an inactive role in communication with the community.

    Don't get me wrong I'm in the same camp who believe the idea that Preach is going to return every 2 years when there's a new WoW Expansion is just starting to look like a comedic gag.

    At the end of the day, I take any opportunity from these Content Creators to fill in the extreme blanks about Dragonflight as a product that is currently visible. If we get any hints towards the future design of the game or its content that is a positive.

    We're not getting the Q&A back and we're not getting anything out of their mouths through published interviews. Content Creator interviews is the best way for them to slip info. Always will be.

    I no longer reply to quotations beyond if you're asking a genuine question or have a non-confrontational stance.

    Nihil.

    If you want to pretend saying “I don’t feel confirmable doing press after there response” or “that’s to big of a hill for me to climb” in direct response to the lawsuit isn’t the reason I can’t stop you.

    He has/had other issues with the game but to pretend the lawsuit wasn’t what made him actually stop and he just so happened to step away when it came to light and pointed directly to it is silly.

    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.

    My only issue is with the name. When WoW started, the content creators created actual content. Fun videos, great machinimas, small stories set in WoW. Now they are commentators. I just don't consider that content.

    So, I'm looking at the Balance talent tree on wowhead, and I'm confused how Syzygy (https://www.wowhead.com/spell=390378/syzygy) works. Celestial Alignment, as itself, is a buff like the old Arcane Power, Icy Veins, or Incarnation etc.; it doesn't have a targeting effect. Does taking Syzygy turn it into a targetable spell that then buffs you with Celestial Alignment once you select the area?

    Do any of the named Elemental Lords get referenced at all during the questing in dragonflight? Neptulon, Therazane, Thunderaan, and i guess Smolderon is missing in BFA.


    Would think with such heavy elemental stuff going on, they would be involved in some shape or form

    Not that I remember. But you can see Therazane and Ragnaros during a quest; that's all

    It currently requires an @cursor macro

    Yes, that's how it works.

    No, it doesn't. It just requires 2 clicks.

    Looking through the appearance tabs on my paladin atm. and I just noticed...

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=200286/...nce?bonus=7935 is FRIGGIN MASSIVE. Sheathed, it's "pommel" is way up in the air like your standard post BFA polearm. BUT it's pointy end is sticking into the ground.

    They aren't mentioned yet but you as was mentioned, when you run through the Black Empire you see a few of them fighting each other.

    If we go into the elemental realm we'll probably reach out to them and the Earthen Ring, but they might just be on the backburner for a later plot. But we're dealing with elements that weren't bound by the Titans, not them.

    I'm personally interested in whether or not they are separating water and ice.

    Smolderon feels like an EK/Kalimdor thing. If they did a revamp, there would need to be something going on in Blackrock to fight.

    A lot of those videos take more effort for minimal gain, machinimas especially. Though there's still some great machinima creators out there from people with passion.

    Fun fact of the day. While you can see the new character models for the aspects when in their humanoid forms when you visit Dragon Soul, you cannot see their new dragon forms, which I guess just means they are different models altogether.

    Why would they? Ice is just a form of water. WoW has been using the classical greek elements for a long time now and there's not really a practical reason for changing it.

    He did not say he would never come back. Stop spreading such false lies. He even said if they changed the game for the better and started respecting the player base he might come back. Its in the same video where he quit.

    Also Preach has never been a hater. Is anyone thats critical on the game a hater? Its people like him that get us wins in the first place. If everyone thought like you, the game would be much MUCH worse.
