    Watched the alpha exploration video, and the descent from Hallowfall to Azj'Kahet looks really wide and shows how huge those roots are!

    I bet "Rootlands" is the Forbidden Reach area this expansion and it will come before 11.1 & Undermine.

    I think if we have both a goblin raid and a Life-based area then our two options are either in the same patch and goblins are after something in the Life area (or want to eradicate it because it makes azerite inert, or Gallywix has made a deal with the nathrezim), or they're two separate patches and Gallywix has made a deal with the void ethereals.

    Definitely, but is that area just in the middle of the ocean, underneath another zone, or the Coreway? There's a big sinkhole in Hallowfall so I'm not sure if that's meant to be the Coreway or what.

    Speaking of which, I wonder if they're going to say where he is being trained. Is he training with Dwarven wizards? At Dalaran?

    He's a child. Anduin was literally bullied in High School because his high school was Mists of Pandaria.

    An extremely bad take considering Dagran is dressed just like Khadgar.

    This isn't a Dark Iron Dwarf. This isn't a Warcraft character. This is a wimp who has no business being in this franchise. I'd expect to see this guy in a sparkly pretty boy series like League of Legends, not Warcraft.
    No, it's pretty fitting... almost all the sons of the great heroes in WoW started off as total wimps and had to go through their own journey's to find their place.
    Anduin
    Thrall's Son,
    Dagran..
    Even Garrosh in TBC was a giant wimp who hated his father and hated himself for being a sick weakling.

    The only 'son' in WoW's history that wasn't a total wimp was Wrathion, but mostly because he figured out how to be a conniving little shit from the moment he hatched from his egg.

    In Dagran's case, this is the first time we've ever seen him in game where he isn't a literal baby or kid (for some reason Blizz can't do Dwarf kids well) and he's probably the most malleable on whether he'll turn to good or bad.

    Awakened raids will now rotate weekly, instead of every 2 weeks. That was a quick change lol

    Wrathion doesn't count just by virtue of being a dragon.

    Garrosh was a hilarious example because even into as far as Wrath they treated him like he was a late teens style "young maverick" but for all intents and purposes he was, awkwardly, probably in his 30s. Some Dear Orcish Hansen film level shit.

    What's the reason? Taking too long to get fated amirdrassil?

  9. #67969
    idk, both one week and two weeks are both shit for their own reasons. They should just remove the rotation altogether.

    Also: This whole discussion of "teenager looks like a teenager" is weird and projecting "hotness" and "manlyness" on a, for all intents and purposes, child is creepy as fuck.

    The raids seem to only rotate twice. From week 7 all raids will be fated. Which is in itself another problem because a lot of people i talked to basically wait for the non fated raid weeks to get mythic mounts or chances for legendary.

    I mean, you were able to turn off Fated for DF.

    THIS is a Dark Iron Dwarf sorcerer!

    I am one of the loudest people about how garbage the art style has become, and how Warcraft no longer feels like Warcraft, and the dude literally just looks like a teenager. We had dorky characters pre-Shadowlands.

    He's fine.

    Alpha feels less omg peace n friendship!11!! already too, so the presence of a younger character isn't as big of a deal as say, Dragonflight, which is literally Peacecraft off-brand trash as a whole.

    I'm just eager to see Thaurissan II earning his beard, cause that and a good staff/hammer are the only things missing to make him a bad ass sorcerer

  15. #67975
    The boy has a completely square jawline and hands bigger than his head but he is not masc enough for some people.

    Nope, not at the end. Once all raids were fated you could turn of the affixes, but the base difficulty was still fated. Which means our initial plan of doing Mythic Fyrrak Skip runs for the last missing mounts is basically in shambles unless the awoken raids are tuned as easy as fated with all affixes lol.

    This is how true masc dwarf should look like.

    Hopefully Dagran lacking a beard is some indication that they may consider no-beard or smaller beard options for dwarves may be a thing in the near future. He actually looks good. You can still tell he's a dwarf based on overall appearance, so it's not like a dwarf without a beard isn't a dwarf.

    I should've also included Liam Greymane, but he wasn't a lame nerd, rather he just kinda appeared and we somewhat interacted with him and he had his only badass moment where he gave that rousing speech and charged into Gilneas City..... and then he died in one hit when he aggro'd Sylvanas.
