Seen any Inuyasha lately? :D


Deathwing is actually our dad, and the entrance to his instance is hidden in our eyeball.

Sinestra was merely a setback?


Well, Sinestra was meant to have been killed by her "son" Dargonax exploding due to completely absorbing Zzeraku.

Sinestra has already suffered a setback - "Dargonax was merely a setback".

A friend brought this up and it made eerie sense...

If this is like the LAST two expansions the major bosses from most of the expansion will be kill stolen by an NPC again. I'm calling Thrall on this one...

God no, it is bad enough with people falling off the elevator in BWD, having people fight while on an elevator?

Maybe when we get rid of all of these old god influences in the instance deathwing will actually be friendly and say "we're going for a ride, if you can stay on board for the duration of the flight, you can have your epics. There will be an exploit involving sitting in his lower jaw that will be fixed after the world first kill (or maybe just as the world first kill reaches 2 seconds left, and they drop to their deaths - the drop being further than a parachute cloak can save you from)

I'm sure I've seen some Rule 34 materials to that effect.

"The fight takes place in multiple different environments, you'll actually potentially get loot at different points in the encounter so it's broken up into larger scale overall. Players will start at Wyrmrest Temple and then eventually it progresses to players fighting on [Deathwing's] back flying towards the Maelstrom, trying to wrestle him to the ground, basically." - Tom Chilton.

That sounds both awesome enough to be true and stupid enough to be a joke...

Or they just pacify the raid, meaning that they can't do anything at all.

Another interesting tidbit:

Speculation swirled recently regarding Blizzard's decision to trademark 'Mists of Pandaria', as many thought it may indicate the name of the next World of Warcraft expansion. Pandaria, in Warcraft lore, refers to the home of the Pandaren, basically humanoid war pandas you may remember making an appearance as neutral heroes in in Warcraft III. Chilton said the speculation was, "wildly overhyped." He added, "if you look at traditionally how we've handled that race it's been in those secondary products because we haven't realized it in the world. Most of the time when we do anything panda-related it's going to be a comic book or a figurine or something like that."

He says it was wildly overhyped, but also neither confirms nor denies.

I find it a bit strange that they didn´t say anything about the new addon yet.
