Interesting levelling concept. Zones are all scalable to your level, which means you can start in any zone! This is a really interesting concept. But it gives me the impression that zones will be compartmentalized, with less in the way of an over-arching consistent storyline from start to end. If so, I'm not fond of it, but maybe it's not like that.

One cool effect of this is that they can offer daily quests anywhere in the zone, rather than restricted "level 110" areas. They plan to offer constantly changing objectives around the world, so what you are offered daily can vary a lot.

Looks like a new sabre model in there too, (Not to dissimilar to the runesabre, but a little more sleek)

Image

They are all greyed out due to an effect on them for that particular dungeon it looks like.

Same. ;-; I couldn't believe we got yet another revamp for them, I thought the Cata one looked so good and now it looks old. :lol:

Here is the new Bear Model, was very fleeting, but it's much more furry and has a lower profile and longer snout.

I watched everything on a Russian stream since i don't have a ticket. good quality and almost no hiccups. Wish i had known others were having issues with the original stream- i would have shared a link. :(

kind of nice to see some new dragons out and about. as far as new animals go i saw the cat, a bear and there was some owl art. can't recall if it was concept or in game but they looked a bit like a Kaliri.

dungeons sound interesting but i have yet to hear anything that has gotten me excited, but I must admit some of the zones look absolutely amazing and that greek themed isle has beautiful music.


P.S i'm not the only one who saw the new naga models and felt my heart skip when the guy took a long drawn out breath right? for a second i thought he was actually going to say they would be playable. :lol:

Going off their banter about how they missed their dragons as none were native to Draenor, and making the 1st boss in the raid one, I'm left a little miffed model and skin wise.

So there are the new "Rotting/Corrupted green Dragons/drakes. And there are now also some new "Storm Dragon/drakes", as they made a deal of them being "A New Flight" or something, who seem to have a link in with he Vykrul folk.

So why are the two new dragons, with new models, EXACTLY the same?!? (accept their heads) They are obviously different colors, but the textures, scales, dimensions are all identical.

Image

A golden opportunity to create a new model (it could keep the same skeleton/rigging if they had to) for a new and interesting dragon flight/species.... but no. :|

Cata did this a LOT more successfully, they had 4 different drake models that ended up being mounts. Maybe I'm jumping the gun (well yeah but just going with what we've got so far) and maybe as they will not be offering flight again til the end, flying units are just not a priority?

Anyways, just going off all the previous expansions adaptations, how good some of them are/where (yes I'm lookin at you Protos) I just see it a lost potential, should they not be shooting to improve on the previous... maybe that just me. Sorry about the rant, but model designs/skins are just a big deal for me, especially if you might be able to mount it :lol:

Slickrock snapped some pics of the artifact weapons. There's some new BM gun variants, and it also looks like MM has a crossbow variant: https://twitter.com/TheSlickrock/status ... 8640471041

Here is Blizzard's page on the Hunter artifacts as well: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/199326 ... 10-23-2015

The BM gun is called Titanstrike, powered by a titan artifact and created by Mimiron (maybe we go to Ulduar in our quest to get it?). The bow is Alleria's bow.

Love the cinematic and really hoping there's a quest to return Varian's compass.

And this will probably be one of the lovely Constructs silently sneaking up on people squashing them to their doom:

I don't really see how a gun by Mimiron fits beastmaster and I don't like guns anyways... but I guess that's what tmog is for :P

I am way too attached to my pets to go Marks, I have zero interest in going melee, so I will be stuck with a gun that I will have to transmog over with an old bow model. Every time I see a post with the BM guns I just want to fling myself on the floor and have a temper tantrum like a 3 year old. WHYYYYYYY can't we just be allowed to pick between a gun or a bow?

Many thanks to Sookie for the awesome signature and avatar

A new bear model was really needed, they are really outdated right now.

Ah no, I promised myself I wouldn't tame any more cats!

Really happy to see that there will be a new bear. And the new demons look amazing.

...That construct is going to bring back painful memories...

The Legion storm dragons confused me a little. Cataclysm had storm drake/dragons, though I don't recall much history given behind them.

This npc is called "young storm dragon."

is it a new skeleton or updated skin? the animation looked similar, but I can't really tell if its the same skeleton.
