I definitely would've been happy. Nightborne and Zandalari feel a lot more unique than Void Elves, Lightforged and Dark Irons. Broken do, too. But hey, they said they have more planned and intend on building on it, so who knows, maybe they're one of the very next planned allied races.

Man, this... this feels like cataclysm all over again, except I was excited about cataclysm and I can feel nothing but emptiness for this. Maybe it was just the presentation, but nothing so far feels worth the $60-80 the CE will likely be. I mean... I'll probably do it anyway, but ugh. More pointless faction bickering. There's literally nothing but a lack of communication and machismo fuelling it at this point; when will it end?

I missed the actual panel and the virtual ticket is worthless and doesn't have any of the panels available as vods yet, so maybe it'll be better when I'm not trying to squeeze info out of MMO-champion's cliffnotes. Sorry for being a downer again, folks :(

There is a lot of lore and info we don't know yet. The novel, Before the Storm, will explain it all. We do know that Sylvanas has her sights set on SW. Many speculate that she wants to sack it and make the humans there into Forsaken.

Wondering how race change is going to work with these subraces, as they have that questline requirement. I'm really tempted to change my Darkspear troll into Zandalari one, assuming it doesn't screw anything progression and collection wise.

So I watched the WoW stuff while it was live. BF is at work so he couldnt see.
I can still do the main video since it's still going and rewind it for the WoW stuff.. But then it cuts off in the middle of it right as they are talking about the Ally races and tell you to click the other link to continue to watch that.
Problem is, that pannel is no longer live so I can no longer select it to see the Ally races stuff continued :C
Is there a way I can go back and watch thing things that are no longer live? I wanted to go back and watch it all with the BF when he gets home.

Siggy under construction!

I'm going back and forth on this. Part of me loves all the new additions but I despise them making Anduin into Jaina 2.0. Not that I play alliance but there was a reasonableness there that I respected and now it looks like it's gone :(

Actually.. Now I can't even access the beginning of the All Access now :C Not even the WoW parts.
I guess the BF, who even bought the ticket himself, is going to miss it? :C

People are jumping the gun way too quickly. Yes, Anduin was leading the charge, but we don't know how it got to that point yet.

I hope you are right. Just don't want the game to go down that path again.

UC gets attacked, and Teldrassil is burned. However, we don't know which happened first and which was a response.

It does matter if Teldrassil was burned, or SW was attacked by Sylvanas so that she could raise the humans there into Forsaken. Varian gave them a chance to reform and to keep the peace between them. If they decide to forgo that chance and break the peace, then the Alliance's response isn't exactly uncalled for.

No, I get what you're saying. You don't want Anduin's personality to change, and there is no reason to think that it has. But it would be foolish and naïve for him, or any leader, to just sit by after the capital of one race was burned, and the other (his own) was attacked.

Since no one really is explaining on the official forums how is this scaling going to work?

I read where it scales to the zones so does this mean even at 110 I still can blow stuff up and blow through old raids/dungeons if this is the case then it won't bother me but if at 110 I will have to fight 110 mobs in any old content then that could be it for me.

I also am going to be annoyed if they once again try and start off with the Horde as the bad guys kind of over that. Guess we'll see. up side some pretty new beasts

They'll be explaining it more in a bit. But, basically, they will scale, but only so far. TBC and Wrath content will scale from 60-80. Cata and MoP 80-90, or something like that.

So Wrath scales 60 to 80 but at 110 means nothing cause I way outleveled the zone that is how I am reading this response and thank you for answer.

Do videos of the panels ever get made public after Blizzcon is old news? There was one I was interested that I doubt the cliffnotes of will be as interesting.
