    Who would have imagined that a dagger becomes the worst baddie of all time

    that is, if you forget about all those other word baddies of all time.

    Guess of the baddies of the next expacs:

    World of Warcraft: The-one-after-the-war-within: Onyxia
    World of Warcraft: The-one-after-the-one-after-the-war-within: The Titans. Yep. They became evil. Because Azeroth is going to be the UBERTITAN! And noone wants to lose power.

    An option that replaces spiders with crabs? Kinda interesting. Would love to see one that replaces them with mean looking goats!

    First expansion I won't be playing live since MoP.

    As someone who has been a dedicated fan since the very launch of this game I find it hard to believe that this once great franchise has been brought so low by the people gleefully torching its legacy. Many of memories, challenges and friends i will cherish but this thing should go the way of star wars. make female, make it gay, make it lame.
