A lot of awesome stuff here, old world being reshapen, reuse of old world content....I think I will really like this new expansion.

Looks great, now to see if it all becomes real

Oh well, guess we'll soon find out, if anything the details would be released at blizzcon

Hopefully not, hopefully there will be obvious restrictions. Human Druid? No fucking way.

I trust MMO Champion over Project Lore, TBH.

World gets ripped apart?
I roll a Werewolf?
Taurens are paladins?
Cairne finally succumbs to old age (and an axe to the face)?
I get to gank Goblins?
Ragnaros comes back?

This sounds like the best fucking expansion ever.

Atleast Human Hunters.. It just makes too much sense for Humans to hunt, no?

Coppied from my old guild's forum because I'm to lazy to write another wall of text.


Hmm, I guess this is the big announce for blizzcon and they just wanted to get it out of the way so they can build some hype before they give more information. I'm guessing to sell more internet/PPV streams. I'll also guess the new MMO/IP will be announced also, even if its stealing thunder from WoW. FFXIV and SWTOR are 2 big upcoming MMOs, they probably want to get a piece of the hype pie before its too late.

Ninja edit: I guess its not confirmed by blizzard yet but news is rarely "leaked", it was probably intentional. Why wouldn't they, the more internet streams the better.

Anyways overall I think these changes are pretty awesome, I might even play again if I get the burning crusade feeling again. If they can get away from the classes being generic I don't think I would have any reason not to. Gnomes get a healing class (finally), female dorf shaman sounds fun too.

One of the things I have a problem lore wise is is blood elf warriors. I always thought they were a race that had a strong bond to mana/energy, I always thought it was a good decision that they could not be a rage based warrior, a paladin is close enough.

Also its pretty funny the goblin/worgen rumor was true, and blizzard made extra masks to cover it up the next build. I'm looking forward to seeing how (bad) the player worgen will look like, I wonder how much of a facelift they are going to give them.

Classic Dungeon Revamp
Redesigning Onyxia's Lair in Patch 3.2.2 was just the first step. As most of the leveling will take place in revamped areas of Azeroth, so too will the dungeons, allowing players to use them to level from 80 to 85.

I still think they are taking the wrong approach, but its still a good step to reviving old (good) content. Level capping from FFXI worked perfectly, with a little tweaking due to drastic changes in classes gameplay over 5 years it could have work in WoW well.

You like the idea of Dwarf Female Shaman but dont like the idea of Blood Elf warriors? I mean there are blood elf rogues so why not warriors?

Like I wrote, they are an mana/energy race. You want a brawling melee blood elf then roll paladin, they are close enough and work with the lore.

Theres plenty of lore to support dwarf shaman. Look up dwarfs on wowwiki and you can see some pretty nature loving looking ones. I don't really care enough my self to look it up (@ 1am)

Kind of skimmed through the thread but didn't see anyone posting this: http://www.wow.com/2...y-mmo-champion/
I'm kinda hyped for Tauren Paladin for some reason. Belfs are too gay.

Tauren paladins are the WORST idea Blizzard has EVER EVER done.

Yes, lets give the best race in the game the Paladin class.

BRB rerolling a fucking Tauren Paladin, and just rofl stomping arena's. (Get it, if you don't 2 second stun on your ass.)
