I'm not going to lie, I'd love to play MoP.

I just can't see myself paying for it.

i would love this!
i have 3 realms of 10 toons, so if i was able to add another one to each, i could roll my 3 monks!

Well, actually...
This is not set in stone but Blinding Shield is currently the paladin level 87 ability.

Blinding shield WAS a cata ability aswell, but didnt make it through.
I wouldnt take that as a Yes, or a NO, its just a maybe.

point there

Q.Theres lots of people wanting the reskinning for old races, I was over at the art panel and the pandaren just looked so amazing. They were talking about being 10-20 in the fact alone, is that also something they are looking into for reskinning the new races?
A.Its the one thing we really want to see brought up to the pandaren level. There are about 10 times more bones in the pandaren models compared to the current character models. We dont know when this exactly will happen, because we are still not unsure how to roll this out because some people might not like the new models as much as they do the old models.

I call bullshit on that

Blinding Shield might have a btter chance this time, as there are similar (AoE daze effect) spells in other class talent trees they previewed.

Make blinding shield a pushback tbh.
Why should the dps deside when they can pushback the mobs?
The tank should be the one taking that action, not to mention its a form of dmg reduction!

It's true to some degree. Some hunters flipped out when they upgraded or fixed some of older pet models. People will flip out regardless of what they change.

Q&A:
In the Gundrak dungeon there is an area with the stone sentinel guys, and if you look over the rig you see a huge snake tail. There is nothing that massive and snakey in .. its a Chris Metzen answer to just go well look into it so I brought a screenshot of it for Chris.

*Chris looks at snake tail*
Dude just showed you his snake, man. -Dave

That is not the thing that is driving the trolls. Its a super secret WoW storyline. Thrall is going to leave Aggra and start dating Jaina.. in all seriousness I have no idea what it is but its really awesome! Sometimes really awesome stuff shows up ingame and we scramble to explain what it is. Welcome to developing video games. We put the WHAT in WHAT.


One of the biggest loose ends in WotLK (and I'm being at least half serious).

And it shows that sometimes they make it up as they go along. The comments about Varian were interesting too. Getting worked up about lore isn't worth it.

Art Director Chris Robinson spoke on this just moments ago at the BlizzCon Open Q&A panel. It was in reply to an attendee who brought up that, in the art panel, it was explained that the pandaren model has 10 times the bone structures of the classic races, allowing for many more facial animations.

To paraphrase his statement -- which isn't too different from what I've said here on the forums before -- we absolutely plan on updating the existing models. As Chris mentioned, we want to make sure we preserve the look and feel of the original models players have come to know and love, while vastly improving their model and animation quality to be more in-line with the newer races.

We're not going to hide behind the statement that too many players will get mad if we tamper with their models, but it's a concern -- not a concern that's going to stop us from doing it, however. I want to stress as well that it's a massive undertaking to go back and do this. And to a lot of people it's something that won't be considered shiny new content. But not only do we hear the masses of players calling for this update, we really feel it's time to bring them up to par with newer models as well.

The game continues to age, but as we have no plans of slowing down on development any time in the near future, we want to keep updating and polishing it to stand the test of time (again, without sacrificing the look and feel which has brought players in over the years).

Well... to be honest, I kind of would have preferred the model thing had been worked on in cata considering they put too many man hours into the low level stuff.

I don't think not having a plan for the snake in Gundrak is evidence of that.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

The best part of MoP?

There is no way they're getting through that expansion without making samurai-eqsue armor.

WOOT! :)
