    If Sabellian was going to be the leader they'd market the hell out of him. And not put Wrathion on loading screen either.

    I hope they don't make people vote either. Cause you know Wrathion is going to win. Everyone knows who Wrathion is. People who don't care about the story would just instinctively choose Wrathion anyway.

    Those who like the memes will choose Wrathion.

    People who ship Wrathion and Anduin will choose Wrathion.

    There's simply no way Sabellian wins lmao.

    Something cool they could do is have Wrathion go through something during the expansion that makes him turn down the position and let Sabellian win.

    Being on the loading screen has really no meaning anymore.
    Remember Krexus in the Shadowlands? Me neither. He was featured in the CGI cinematic and got a loading screen spot.

    I still stand by that Krexus was meant to be used more, but was scrapped for whatever reason. It just seems silly to give him such a unique design only to have him usurped and removed from the story.
    Way back I imagined a raid where we fought a reanimated Krexus, but really anything would have worked.

    And yeah, the loading screen for Dragonflight is weird. Choosing Ysera instead of Merithra especially.
    One would have thought that they would go for one or the other. Either current aspects, or original aspects. Only reason I can assume they didnt is because they didnt have a good mockup of visage form Malygos at that point, which just seems silly to imagine.

    That's true. Maybe they just didn't wanna spoil anyone? But then again Draka even had her short story.

    There is no way that Krexus wasn't more important and I am fairly sure it got changed at some point in mid-late development.

    He was the only character in the Maldraxxus part of the Launch cinematic. There is no way they were making a high-fidelty cinematic model for a character that died like 10-20 quests into the zone, offscreen, and did nothing of value.

    I’m willing to bet he was supposed to fill Draka’s role in development.

    I think he would have become the Maldraxxus leader if they went ahead with the "Primus = Jailer" thing (if that was something that they had planned)

    If it is just an illusion of choice, I do hope that Sabellian still gets some kind of major, long-running role. I wouldn't want him reduced to a villain since he seems like an enjoyable character already.
    Ye it would suck if they choose to use sabellian for a villain role. He is one of the last named black dragons, hopefully hes character changes during the expansion to be in a supportive role atleast and not push him over the edge. Right now he seems to proud to be in the second place, so hes attitude needs to change.

    As much as I dislike Preach, his documentary about his Blizzard visit and the interviews with Ion are so incredibly insightful. Only thing is that you have to turn the chat off.

    Preach speaking out against any type of workplace misogyny/discrimination while his chat is spouting discriminatory non-sense is a bit iffy lmao.

    His chat pretending that he is being paid off by Blizzard because he is positive about Blizzard is so sad.

    Maybe someone can give me a quick answer: Can I directly start professions in Dragonflight on my Dracthyr or do I need to do something before to be able to gather herbs / ore on the Dragon Isles? Completely out of the loop with this topic since forever.

    Pretty sure you have never been restricted from actually mining or gathering for years now, only requiring the actual base profession. Might not be fully efficient if there are Dragonflight gathering upgrades, but nothing to make it impossible.

    Anyone want to make a quick tl;dr: for the important bits? Or is it primarily just a Blizzard workplace documentary?

    That was a really good documentary.

  13. #70873
    It was an enterteining watch. If you expect something related to future content you will be dissapointed though.

    Anyway I expect it to be the first of many videos. I do not think that Preach spent three days there just for this, as much as I enjoyed it, there has to be more.
    Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

    Evergreen on my mind and hearing Evergreen just being uttered is just magnifique.

    Now we just need to see if there's actions.
    I no longer reply to quotations beyond if you're asking a genuine question or have a non-confrontational stance.

    Nihil.

    There's going to be a part 2.

    So Dracthyr already have all the animations they need for normal flight, yet Blizz doesn’t just give us this as a mount.

    But then again blizzard doesn’t seem to care about Dracthyr/Evoker cosmetic stuff since they haven’t even given them any glyphs.

    That's because NPC's need to use it.

    That's the only reason they have those.

    Fair enough, but that is the current purpose of those animations. Maybe that can change in the future but the reason those flying animations exist is for NPCs.

    I mean, people can also control the Lich King model. Doesn't mean it was meant to be used by players.
