I'm very glad that they're updating the Earth Elementals. They were really starting to show their age. Hopefully we can expect the same for the other Elementals :)

Especially the air elementals, those things look rough. I'm sure the art folks can come up with something cool tho.

I know that Mages would really appreciate a new water elemental. They have been requesting one for years.

I hope mages get water elementals that match the water style from the artifact staff. I'd be tickled if they could get their elemental in a color that matched the tints they unlocked.

Rergh. Mag'har 'lightbound' story arc SO STUPID.

STOOOOPIIIIID.
'yes let's take the Jewish-coded persecuted refugees and the only female protagonist we've ever made that doesn't exist to be some dude's arm candy or a raging nutbag and turn them into the Spanish Inquisition!!!! THAT'LL BE EDGY!??!!!'

Rant on forum overran the character limit.

someday I'll find someplace to host a sig that isn't stupid money-grubbing photobucket

You're not alone, Nacht. We've been having a little discussion about it in the BfA story thread. Unless there is so much more to this (and I doubt the Alliance will get a perspective), it is probably one of the most ridiculous things that Blizz has done in regards to the lore.

Agreed. There is the story thread for a reason.

Fun little thing I found; walk close to low level hostile mobs, but not close enough to aggro them. They'll turn and look at you like an NPC looks in the direction of a stealthed player that's too close. That's new!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

You can either do the usual questlines to reach them or you can ask a mage to make a portal for you to Dalaran. :)

I think the only option is to find a mage. I just asked in Trade chat and someone ported me. :)

I did the trick by myself. Created a mage, opened a portal to Legion Dal, put a group in group finder with auto accept. I then logged on the character I wanted to port, joined the group, clicked the portal. The problem with this method is you don't get the Dalaran Hearthstone.

Oh, ya know I forgot mages learned portals through trainers haha. I made a mage and was annoyed it didn't come with all the portals and gave up ahaha. Whoops.

Aye, there was some datamined text for Zidormi regarding Tirisful and Teldrassil a couple builds back. Glad to see that there is a way to see how they once were :)

I'm relieved to hear this, Tirisfal and Undercity are my favourite places in game and I would have hated to lose access to them forever. If they have the tech I see no reason not to let us phase back and forth, their original idea of the destruction having a 'real permanent impact' didn't sit right with me.
