We've brought it up, but I'm not sure it's in the cards. Guess we'll all have to find out!

Pleeeeaaaaaasssssseeeeeeeee???? *orc puppy eyes* I've wanted to be a brown orc since always. I was really disheartened when I could not be one in Cata despite seeing brown orcs everywhere in Garrosh's forces and he himself being a brown orc. *sniff*

k I got a question for you good Blizz sir: Why did you not add a new race or class in this xpac when you have been doing so for the past 9 years? Like is it trading improvement for class/race additions?

Think of it this way, as this can be a lore work-a-round:

Brown-skinned Orcs are already on Draenor. Not every Orc is going to be with Garrosh, namely the Frostwolf Clan. If we the players are sided with the Frostwolf Clan that gives ample room for them to side with the revolutionary Horde under Vol'jin's new banner, and gives us the young and able of the Frostwolf Clan - brown Orcs - in the new Horde. I am sure that there might be another clan or two out there not partial to Garrosh's calling, no?

Why'd you go boomchicken? What level, and what are you enjoying most about it?


I leveled a boomchicken. I enjoyed levels 40-48, 70-80 and 90 most. I mostly like the transitioning from Nature to Arcane.

We just got both a new class and a new race this expac. I think we need to let the guys balance what we have for an expac before adding even more of either.

Sorry guys: I think I chased Daxx away :(.

I think the best especially (which always makes and made me smile), was when the CM's would occasionally chime in and tell us all little jokes. :p Made my day everytime.

Hey Daxxarri, I actually have a legitimate question while you're around.

What will happen to Challenge Modes when WoD is released?

Will the rewards still be the same, will our gear and level still scale down to the content's appropriate level?

While you're listening/watching ... Brown Skin for Orcs in WoD? :D

Since that's in the talks, are Wildhammer Dwarves tatoos in the talks too? Or even better: Earthen Dwarf skins? That would be great.

Was it not stated that Monks are in a happily balanced spot right now?

With the stat squish coming in WoD, or pre-WoD patch, I think the balancing of everything else will come pretty nicely and easily. I think it was said we will be brought to roughly 6% of current stats?

Jesus christ are you serious? You actually think what you say and them saying "oh we'll look into it" matters at all?

Here's a quote from Holinka an hour ago


While I acknowledge that tweet could have been phrased better, that was an out of context response to a conversation. I won't presume to speak for Brian, but according to my interpretation and within the context of that conversation, I think what he's trying to get across (within the limitations of Twitter) is that we make changes based on a perceived need, not merely because a volume of ideas for changes exist.

We say 'we'll look into it' all the time. I've said it many times myself, on a variety of topics, and it does alert us to situations where a change or adjustment is merited. If you don't believe that what the community has to say has an impact? Well, evidence of the opposite is all around you.

Making 90s out of those of my numerous alts who aren't there yet. 11th one last Saturday; 12th one "soon"™....


I plan to use my boost to play with opposite faction pals on a realm where my leveled characters are all one faction. Lookin' forward to it!

83 on way to 84. Theres a glyph that can alter the boomy's form to mimic that of an astral form..why? I like it better...that beak...*shudder* I like casters, I have a 90 lock, this one, and a holy priest / shadow offspec. I used to run melee but never liked them, I seem to have an affinity with casters in general.

Druids also have several forms that are extremely useful, one of my main delights is leaping off a high building and changing to flight form mid fall..used it many times in Northrend. Aquatic form (orca) made underwater work in quests a breeze, as an orca in Vashjir, I felt like part of the vast ocean around me.

Balance druids are a versatile class with skills that can meet almost every need in an instance or dungeon, have fair to middling self heals and can alternate nertween instacast spells (wrath) to heavy hitters (starsurge + starfire), using force of nature / typhoon and entangling roots means I can keep the enemy at a distance and still pound him into mulch before he gets his paws on me.

The Balance focus / solar / lunar eclipse also means I can use spells that are appropriate for the attack / defence strategy as the fight itself evolves. Shifting eclipse means some spells pack more of a punch when I need them....which suits me as not every fight is melee heavy and I can adapt as needed.

Not big on tanking,mind you, and my heals spec is quite viable...all in all, the class brings a lot to the table. Having a cast spell (Moonglade) that can send me to Kalimdor anytime I need to, means I dont need mages or ports.

Druids are a multiskill, adaptable class, and I am enjoying it thoroughly.

Not much. Fell down stairs, sprained my ankle, spent Thanksgiving in the ER, set fire to the kitchen heating up leftovers, then got into a car accident trying to finish Christmas shopping on one foot.

But I'm still happy because I'm finally getting my hippo in the next expansion!! Thanks, guys!

I kindas like the sparkles. The chicken form seems....odd. Ever seen a boomy on a mount? It's a weird sight...

Litteraly the #1 reason I still play my moonkin. I HATED looking at moonkin form all of the time, was a welcomed addition to the class.

edit:It might be a bad thing because now I have a different xmog set every day of the week

Heh - I'm hoping I actually won't have one of each class at 90 when the xpac lands. I need a few left over to boost.... since I have so many active accounts. Truthfully, I could use those all on horde - but I don't play horde that much. Still just not really my "side"....

My moonkin on her Swift White Hawkstrider is the best thing ever.

Also, you haven't lived until you've seen a moonkin in the sidecar of the chopper/mechano-hog.
