2h Loot Rules for Transmog Runs Since the Patch 7.3.5 change to use personal loot rules in leveling dungeons, we’ve heard a lot of feedback from Transmog hunters concerned about how this has affected the ability to collect appearances from older content. We hear you, and agree it’s a problem, so we’ve been working on a more robust solution for Battle for Azeroth. Once these updates are implemented, entering a dungeon or raid that is trivial for you (i.e.: your character is 10 or more levels higher than the dungeon or raid’s intended level) will activate a “legacy loot mode.” That loot mode will work like this: The number of items dropped by bosses will be the same as it would have been if you were in a full party. So if you’re in a 5-player dungeon, you’ll get 5 players’ worth of loot. For raids with a flexible raid size (such as Raid Finder), this will act as though there were 20 players in the raid. All items on the loot table will have a chance to drop, not just the ones that are designated for your spec. If you have multiple players in the group, the loot will be split among those players, but be tradeable. For example, if you’re clearing with one other player and kill a boss that should drop 4 items, you’ll each be able to pick up two items and trade them between each other if you like. While the personal loot change was a key part of what allowed us to expand leveling dungeons to encompass a wider range of levels, and we’re happy with it in that environment, we recognize that it’s not a great experience for those who enjoy clearing older content for transmog, and hope that these changes will make that more enjoyable once they’re complete. Thanks again for all of the feedback!Ornyx299 2h
4h XP From Dungeons Hi all, From WoW’s earliest days, we’ve always had to take steps to limit experience gains for characters when grouped with someone of a drastically higher level. We recently became aware of a bug introduced in 7.3.5: a side-effect of the vastly expanded creature scaling was causing the logic to break when awarding XP in some situations. Earlier today, we applied a hotfix to creature experience that corrects this issue. At the same time, we have significantly increased the experience awarded through queuing for random Normal dungeons from Classic through Draenor content. Running dungeons at the appropriate should feel rewarding, whether as a complement to or even an complete alternative to questing. As always, we appreciate your feedback and will continue to keep a close eye on the pacing of the leveling experience in 7.3.5 and beyond.Ornyx859 4h
4h Changes to Recruit-A-Friend In Patch 7.3.5, we made significant changes to the level 1–100 experience to ensure players can better enjoy the stories, quest lines, and zones they want to at their own pace. Because of this, we are adjusting the XP bonus on the Recruit-A-Friend (RAF) program to ensure it reflects the updated pacing of the game as new players level their characters and explore Azeroth. DYNAMIC LEVELING IN PATCH 7.3.5 As you may have heard, Patch 7.3.5 significantly overhauled the level-up experience in World of Warcraft so that zones from 1–100 will dynamically scale to your character’s level. Why? Over the years, we’ve made multiple changes to adjust the leveling curve—and as a result, the pace of characters’ progress has become significantly out of sync with the content. Players often out-level areas long before they’ve had a chance to complete key stories and quest lines, leading to a less-than-ideal experience. With this significant update to pacing, the existing Recruit-A-Friend program would no longer provide the best experience for players new to World of Warcraft. Even with scaling zones, triple-speed leveling would mean new players going into dungeons could find themselves overwhelmed by multiple new abilities gained over the course of a single instance run, and might still outpace storylines that help the world make sense and make players feel like they’re part of it—and we want new players to feel at home in Azeroth. To align the Recruit-A-Friend XP bonus with the upcoming leveling changes, we have reduced the XP boost gained from the Recruit-A-Friend program when playing with a linked friend down from 200% (300% XP vs. base XP) to 50%* (150% XP vs. base XP). We are making these changes to ensure the XP boost doesn’t upset game balance and undermine the experience, while still giving a significant XP bonus to you and a friend as a thank-you for being part of the Recruit-A-Friend program. RECRUIT-A-FRIEND CHANGES IN FULL The XP boost has been reduced from 200% bonus to 50% bonus*, effective today, January 22, 2018. If you’re already actively participating in the program, fear not! If you either sent or received an invite before the change went into effect today, once the invite is accepted you and your friend will still receive triple XP* (200% XP bonus) until the link between your accounts expires (90 days from the date the new recruit’s account was first created). Please note: RAF invites expire after seven days. Heirloom gear XP bonuses will no longer stack with the RAF boost (i.e., the maximum XP boost you will see from today onwards is 50%). If you were already on the program, Heirloom gear will still stack. All other rewards are unchanged and yours to enjoy: Summon your friend once every 30 minutes. 10% bonus reputation from kills that grant reputation.* Level granting: for every two levels your friend gains while the accounts are linked, they can grant one level to one of your characters. Recruiter rewards, including game time and epic mounts. *For a full list of the rewards and the in-game criteria for receiving them, visit our RAF In-Game Bonuses page.Ythisens961 4h
14h WoW MVP Program - Recruitment Now Open! Hey all! As we announced last week, we are making some changes to the World of Warcraft MVP Program for North America. With this, one of the biggest changes is going to be in how we recruit our MVPs. Going forward, we will be using an application-based recruitment system, which will allow us to ask targeted questions to candidates, as well as close and open recruitment as needed within a given period. Today we will be opening our first recruitment period in 2018. You can find a link to the application here. Please answer any discussion prompts thoroughly, and, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us here. We look forward to reviewing applications over the next few weeks and we wish all of you applying the best of luck! NOTE: The World of Warcraft North American MVP Program is only open to applicants from the North American service region including the United States and Canada. Applicants from Oceania and South America, including Mexico, will need to refer to their specific MVP Programs where applicable. Any applicants from outside the designated regions will be discarded.Ornyx132 14h
16h Upcoming Changes to the NA WoW MVP Program <This is going to be a bit of a meta discussion, and not something focused on World of Warcraft, as a whole. Those of you who are active on the forums and among the other World of Warcraft communities will probably have more thoughts on this than those who visit the forums on rare occasion.> Hey guys! Over the past year we've had it on our plate to breathe a bit of life in the MVP program for World of Warcraft (you may have seen me mention it here and there, and I know the MVPs have been eagerly waiting for movement on this). After nearly a year of discussions, we're finally ready to start moving forward with a refresh of the MVP program for World of Warcraft! Most of our active posters here know that when the MVP program was founded, it's goal was to recognize active forums poster who contributed to our community through things like high-quality class guides or assisting and guiding new players with helpful information. While being active and posting in a constructive manner will still be something we take into account, we realize that we now live in a world with Icy Veins, Wowhead, Reddit, and numerous other communities that didn't necessarily exist at the onset of this project. This leads our MVP group to not being able to actively fulfill it's original purpose on our singular forums platform. All of this led us to think we needed to be realigning the purpose of the program slightly, as we want to more actively empower the group to engage in discussions with us on various community issues, happening on the forums and in our greater community. This would also include working to provide insight into community and gameplay feedback they may see around the community, with direct conversations between the WoW community team and the WoW MVP group as a whole on a regular basis, much as we do in our conversations with folks on Reddit, Discord, etc., something that hasn't been utilized to its best. To facilitate this, we will be moving the WoW MVP program to an application-based recruitment system, which will address a few concerns we have currently with the recruitment process, as well as letting us asked targeted questions to candidates during certain recruitment periods, and hopefully widening the audience. We expect to open recruitment early next week, after the President’s Day holiday, so be on the lookout for a thread if you're interested! Of note, these changes DO NOT affect any region or franchise outside of World of Warcraft in North America, and these changes also do not apply to our awesome Customer and Technical Support MVPs who do great things. We look forward to getting to work on the program and hearing your feedback!Ornyx301 16h

21s Alliance Allied Race? Horde is getting Draenor orcs, guaranteed now with all the datamining. So what do you guys think Alliance will get? Personally hoping its not Kul'tiran humans, Alliance has been shafted enough with Allied Races already. I saw an interesting idea for Night Elf Worgen, and I think that could look mega cool with some good added customization. Night Elf Worgen Art- https://tonig2.deviantart.com/art/WOW-Worgen-Night-Elf-Moonkin-Form-599694586 Other than Kul'tiran humans and night elf worgen, I can't really see anything obvious. Jinyu are an unlikely possibility, but could be cool. Vulpera I seriously doubt, since they work with the Horde through all of BfA questing. Ideas?Smalldudee7 21s
28s Bone Customization For The Undead As we all know, the US Undead model has a bunch of exposed bones while the Chinese version of the same model has none. I feel that by using that fact WoW can expand the Undead Character Customization with minimum effort. The idea is to give us choice between exposed bones and covered bones in the Character Customization Screen and Barbershop. (The poor barbers now have to take a course on corpse-stitching from the Royal Apothecary Society lol) We could have the option of "bones covered" vs "bones hidden", but I think it would be even better if we could choose several options mixing both. Like this: 1 - All Bones Hidden 2 - Exposed Shoulders 3 - Exposed Elbows 4 - Exposed Ribs Male) / Hips (Female) 5 - Exposed Knees 6 - Exposed Fingertips 7 - Exposed Shoulders and Elbows 8 - Exposed Shoulders and Ribs/Hips 9 - Exposed Shoulders and Knees 10 - Exposed Shoulders and Fingertips 11 - Exposed Elbows and Ribs/Hips 12 - Exposed Elbows and Knees 13 - Exposed Elbows and Fingertips 14 - Exposed Ribs/Hips and Knees 15 - Exposed Ribs/Hips and Fingertips 16 - Exposed Knees and Fingertips 17 - Hidden Shoulders and Elbows 18 - Hidden Shoulders and Ribs/Hips 19 - Hidden Shoulders and Knees 20 - Hidden Shoulders and Fingertips 21 - Hidden Elbows and Ribs/Hips 22 - Hidden Elbows and Knees 23 - Hidden Elbows and Fingertips 24 - Hidden Ribs/Hips and Knees 25 - Hidden Ribs/Hips and Fingertips 26 - Hidden Knees and Fingertips 27 - Hidden Shoulders 28 - Hidden Elbows 29 - Hidden Ribs Male) / Hips (Female) 30 - Hidden Knees 31 - Hidden Fingertips 32 - All Bones ExposedMortis1 28s
30s Weather Effects in Battle for Azeroth does anyone else wish they would add dynamic weather effects to the game? you have no idea how much i would love to see it rain outside org, even if it was extremely rare.Humâ40 30s
51s Zandalari troll racials Any word on when we are gonna see these? We got the names and icons and nothing else. Dark iron dorf racials have been out for weeks. Let us know sometime soon!Khayra0 51s

1m Horde bias so blatant it hurts Alliance begs for High Elves for years. Gets Blood Elves with a stupid gimmick no one asked for. Horde begs for upright and Brown Orcs. They get both with no strings or stupid gimmicks attached and then some. I seriously want someone from the team to chime in and explain how this is fair.Britanny128 1m

1m Alliance druid races I think we need more. I think a lot of people agree. What options are there? Aside from conjuring up brand new night elf or worgen derived Allied Races, what races would make sense for the Alliance that have any connection to anything even remotely resembling druidism? The one I can think of are the Lost Ones, if something like that would ever be considered. The Feralfen tribe in Zangarmarsh made some use of animalistic shapeshifting, though I don't think it was druidism exactly. It could still be used as the foundation for eventually adding them and letting them be druids though. The other choice would be furbolgs. I think this would be a solid race for the Alliance, though while they have some nature magic and what not, I can't recall if they've ever shown any unambiguous signs of core druidic abilities, like shapeshifting. I also seem to recall Blizzard kind of being incredulous at the thought of pandaren druids because of bears turning into bears, and obviously furbolgs are another bear race. What else is there? We've got to crack the case. Night elves are great, but we need moar.Nixxia47 1m

3m #StopThePrune Can you please just resist the urge to condense spells into each other and start thinking more open mindedly? For example; Flourish and essence of ghanir have been packed into one spell in BFA so you know longer get to make vital decisions on whether you want to combine them for a burst healing effect or use them separately for more sustained effect. !@#$ like this is just straight up deleting depth fron classes and leaves us players with no other option than to play 5 different alts so that we can get some sense of satisfaction out of the game. Pack classes full of depth but make only the basic spells enough for casuals to use to get their daily things done while leaving the depth further in the class for players that want to put the effort in and master it all. #RevertToMop #StopThePrune The people want this https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/20761107969?page=1Starsite47 3m
3m 2 new druid races for horde ? Alliance doesn't even get 1. Hmm I mean looking it over it looks like horde is getting races the will cover all classes. Not the same for alliance more faction balance issues on the wayMartei23 3m
5m No Druid Allied Race for Alliance? Hey guys, So after watching the new expansion pack announcent at Blizzcon and hearing about the new allied races, I learned that there are no allied races on the Alliance side that can be a druid. I just think that it's a bit unfair that the Highmountain Taurens can become druids but the Void Elves cannot. I mainly play druid on Alliance and it sucks that I won't be able to make an allied race character on my faction that can be a druid. What do you guys think?ßabak39 5m
6m Account-wide Reagent tab The bank Reagent tab should be account wide, or at least server-wide. For personal storage, put in 7 bag slots that only take profession bags.

Y'all could have finagled the storyline to "snap her out of it" somehow, like Nicole Kidman's character in "Practical Magic". I don't know...but this is the biggest, runniest, stinkiest, steamiest pile of cow crap I've ever witnessed in any MMO - ever. There is no excuse for this bull...you could have (and should have) found a better way. I'm so pissed and upset, and I'm not even going to attempt to blame a ruddy onion. I want her back!!!!!! NOW! Y'all better figure out a way to bring her back to life in the next expansion, because this is effed up.Gigglecakes24 6m
7m I am a disgrace to my kind. The minute I created and logged in to this character I swapped to Holy spec, set up macros, and went straight to healing dungeons. A void elf holy priest, what sort of abomination is this? Lol. I call this one my "guilty pleasure" alt, simply because my main guild, my RL sister, and most of my friends list are all on the Horde. But void elves are so awesome that I might have to find ways to sneak over to the Alliance occasionally and get this one leveled. It's a dilemma! Of all the allied races, their starting zone is the coolest, their mount is unique, their heritage set is the best, and I already know which weapons to mog with it later. Speaking of the home zone, am I missing something? The map shows 5 different islands but only two are accessible. Or am I just bad at finding the portals to the other ones?Shardling12 7m
7m Assless Bears? Collect six chunks of meat from these huge cow-looking things. Maybe one in every three will drop chunks of meat for your quest. I need eight chimera brains, but maybe one in every four will drop a single brain despite them being two-headed miniature dragons. It makes no sense, and it makes questing in BC/Wrath zones awful.

10m Unofficial Vulpera Discussion Thread Been thinking about making this thread for a while and decided to finally do it. I have my thoughts more detailed and centralized here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ixmszjW_3eFvkOiSc8_H1_aXSjXfLmQgrnhr_HQAezo/edit Edit: Please note this isn't solely a "Playable Vulpera" thread, but also discussing the zone they are found in, the theorycraft around them, their lives, what you think their story will be, etc. Just because Playable Vulpera is viable and one of the topics we discuss, doesn't make this only for that. We also discus what we'd like to see. Some Notes: Will the Vulpera need to rebuilt like the Goblin? I don't think so, because from what I can tell, the Vulpera are rebuilt as if the most recent alpha patch with their files datamined. I think Blizzard had planned to pull a Nightborne, making the NPCs that were not player quality (Can't blink, little to no variation, a complete copy of the Goblin skeletons) and then updating them to be as a surprise. They might still make "Nightborne" npcs. However, I don't think Blizzard had really expected just how popular they would be. I think that their popularity has bumped up the Goblin updates a little higher in priority and that they would be using the Vulpera as a base to update them, instead of the other way round. Goblin updates might be released alongside the Vulpera. Some "Proof": https://imgur.com/a/98H0r Alliance or Horde? Signs point to Horde. While the Alliance goes to Zandalar and Vol'dun, I think it'll be more like "GREYMANE'S FORCES HOLD THIS WARDEN TOWER" instead of making friends with anyone. As for the Vulpera on Kul'tiras, they are all aggressive pirates IIRC. Classes? Yes: Shaman, Warrior, Priest, Rogue, Hunter, Mage Maybe: Paladin(Sun walker like the Tauren), Monk(Only if Goblins are allowed Monk as well), Warlock (Unless they turned to demons to try to overthrow the Sethrak) Probably not: Deathknight(unless Bolvar comes to BfA or there were a population of them in the old world we didn't know of), Druid(though, if they are based off of an ancient race like the Tauren, maybe they could). Vulpera are completely made up/have no lore Things can get new lore, just because we don't know much now, doesn't mean they'll be as devoid of lore as a void elf. More over, the big theory going around for the Vulpera is a progenitor of the Goblin. Meaning that, they are the ancestors. It is a part of the lore that Mimirdon experimented on an older race with Kajamite(something featured in the Goblin starting zone and then never again), mutating them into the Goblins we know today. The War of the Ancients Novel mentions a ‘little red fox with a gnomish visage’ as well. Kajamite and Kazan are returning to Battle for Azeroth, couple with the Vulpera being introduced. The theory does hold water rather well and it would be interesting to go into Vulpera and Goblin lore. If all that comes to light, the Vulpera have plenty of lore. Also, everything is made up and nothing is real. The tails are going to be hell for Blizzard Perhaps, but they are actually putting care into it. It moves naturally with the body and it also moves on its own. Its not a butt-horn, its not a fake tail attachment, and its not a limp noodle. Blizzard has made a few cape-compatible emotes where there is surprisingly little clipping that may have already been fixed. It would be a question of moving it up/down, left/right, or even shortening them a smidge. They look the best with capes out of all the tailed races imo. Also: Capes clip with everyone. The Blue post said they were not going to be Playable ... This Blue isn't saying Vulpera is never going to happen, just that Datamining isn't concrete proof. Which is true. They are essentially saying its easier to customize NPCs with giving them playable flags and having them wear player armor. However, Seth'rak and a few other races prove that this isn't going to be the case for every race. Also, a lot of care went into the Vulpera and they have a lot of options. More than the current allied races. More than even some of the base races. And it's Alpha. (Inb4 Alpha worgen more options than current) Quick links: Unofficial Vulpera Compilation: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ixmszjW_3eFvkOiSc8_H1_aXSjXfLmQgrnhr_HQAezo/edit Vulpera vs Goblin vs Worgen: https://imgur.com/a/98H0r UNOFFICIAL Concept Art: https://imgur.com/a/nU0mb Customization Options: https://imgur.com/a/HDZK0Emmilia229 10m
11m Punish players who leave Mythic Keystone I physically can't count on my hands how many times someone has left a Mythic Keystone there should honestly be some type of punishment for it. If you try to leave while in the middle of it there should be a message "You are in the middle of a Mythic Keystone dungeon you will be unable to do mythic keystone dungeons for 12-24-36 hours (How ever how many times they left previously) if you leave." Because this has been happening for SOO longIdindunuffin29 11m
11m [Spoiler] Burning of Teldrassil Text Changes http://www.wowhead.com/news=282153/burning-of-teldrassil-broadcast-text-updates-spoilers So, we got a little change here. It starts like this: ... But the next part went from this: ... To this: ... There's a bit more about the wisps in the link. Anyway. It went from Sylvanas being more honest about her intentions to some generic "but the Night Elves are a threat!" like somehow Night Elves were known for being mass murderers that bomb stuff up. Best case scenario, they would get the Azerite so the Horde can't use it. Same way they tried to keep the Divine Bell and Focusing Iris out of their reach. But the Horde sees Alliance protecting themselves as hostility. Sounds like paranoia about Alliance turning into "let's commit some genocide!!!" again. I think they're just trying to make her sound better, more strategic, after she seemed a little too Hitlery with that talk about empire, exterminating Night Elves and the dumb idea of an ocean separating them. Still, it doesn't mean her intentions changed. That stuff might be in the book or something. Blizzard has a thing for dumbing down the nasty, violent part in the game to make both sides look great for those that play them.Osiria74 11m

21m Do You Regret Asking for Allied Races? I feel like that by the end of this next expansion, both the Horde and Alliance is going to be filled up by so many reject races and recolors of existing stuff, that all original sense of identity will be totally lost.Xoxoplacehol68 21m
21m The Mission Table So I don't know if I'm late to the QQ party but I just read on wowhead that the mission table is in the horde city in bfa. I don't really mind it but I would have liked something different I guess? I was just wondering what other people thought of it and if there is anymore data mined info out there that I missed.

21m Cowardly Blizzard hiding features Funny isn't it? We are asked to pre-order Battle for Assrot right now, yet they have not provided us with any kind of concrete changes for PvP. People want to know if garbage templates are being removed. People want to know if their damage in PvP is going to actually matter. People want to know if PvP gear is going to be useful again. But instead we hear nothing. Crickets. Vague platitudes and "the team has learned from this." Fire the team, they suck. Fire Ion, he sucks. Force the executives at Bli$$ard out, and try and recapture the uniqueness this game once had. Devs used to care about the game they made. Now its just constant damage control.Ghgghggh22 21m
25m Eyebrows for beard less male Night Elves. It has been thirteen years, and Night Elf males still have the no eyebrows with no beard glitch. Please give male Night Elves their eyebrows with the no beard option. Also a black hair option for both male and female Night Elves Thank you.Shadowlynx6 25m
26m Please raise the damage of tanks Blizzard. Tanks are doing less than 50% of most dps classes right now which is really low. Please consider raising tank dps up to about 80% of what a dps does. A big one is bosses in argus. They take far too long to solo you almost always have to find a group to take them down or use the warframe. https://www.wow-dps.com/wow-dps-ranking/Andriyn105 26m

32m Tell us next Alliance allied race? You know given how Horde now know for sure they are getting both Zandalari Trolls and Draenor Orcs, wouldn't it be kind of nice to tell us what Alliance is getting as their second allied race? Seems kind of unfair to me. Is it because you're planning Kul'Tiran humans and you've seen the frequent dislikes for them? Well, a lot of people actually WANTED brown orcs. One may see the odd forum poster saying they love the Kul'Tirans, but I assure you that isn't representative - I just know what people like generally in games and they ain't it. They will be less played than dwarves and probably even pandaren. No, I don't have actual evidence besides my own experience in observing trends in RPGs since early 90s. You know people bring up ogres, but you know there's a very big reason why they won't add that race, and that's because they don't have females. They aren't going to put in a race like that. I have no objection to ogres, but the above is a huge problem.Nithenarina19 32m
32m Of Knife Ears And Goats Dear everyone asking for playable High Elves and Eredar, Void Elves and Blood Elves are High Elves, and Draenei and Lightforged Draenei are Eredar.

36m Male Vulpera on dressing room http://bfa.wowhead.com/dressing-room#oE0m0zJ89mza9m87T Male Vulpera are now up on the wowhead dressing room for customization. Some improvements from the original model include: 1 Animated eyes! They're no longer painted on and they move with animations. 2 Facial expressions! They make unique facial expressions during emotes and casting animations. 3 Speaking of animations, they have a few unique ones though most are still borrowed from goblin and some are still broken. 4 A big bushy tail like the female, it's fully animated and works with a lot of animations. Watch it's idle movements during the sit and walk animations! 5 Variable snout options, but like the female model it's not currently an option to cycle through on the model viewer. EDIT: Snout options can now be cycled through for the male model! It's still alpha, and of course not yet confirmed as an allied race, but it's looking REALLY polished.Jerrod52 36m
41m Wow items from Heartstone A nice way to get people to play heartstone would be to help us farm the BFA equivalent of Order ressources and a rare chance of gaining the BFA equivalent of nethershards while playing it. Right now the companion app is just send your followers here and collect that there, then wait 6 hours. But gaining something in wow would be a great incentive to play heartstone during our lunch breaks or when we are in a waiting room like at the doctor’s. If this suggestion isn’t good, another suggestion would be The Battle for Azeroth companion needing a minigame, think tower defence or candy crush, to farm the BFA equivalent of Order ressources and a rare chance of winning the BFA equivalent of nethershards. Even if you get like 22 Order ressources and 1 Nethershard per candy crush like game, at least it’s an alternative fun way to farm, and a way for you to keep interaction with blizzard products during our lunch breaks and waiting room time. Other minigame types : Fishing Surf evasion (like music surfing games) 1 v 1 pet battles etcKodiac3 41m
46m Straight-back Forsaken spotted in Zuldazar! http://wow.zamimg.com/uploads/screenshots/normal/706802.jpg What you guys think about that? I'd find AMAZING if Forsaken get this option together with orcs too. I mean, if the chiropractor is coming to open business in Orgrimmar, why other races can't benefit from it too? I've got the money, name the price!Oscha2 46m
47m Einheriar from the Cauldron After the visit in Stormwind I am at a loss when trying to find this mount, the one everyone is talking about. I picked up the herbs, I mined the ore, waited for the vendor with the cart and unlocked the limited-stock cage. After that I went outside the city (to the left) where you can find this tavern full of aggressive mobs, and after you clear those mobs a portal opens, which takes you to the island in the middle of the map with the dragon (you need a few health potions if you're bad at avoiding the fire). So I got to the underwater part with the broken machine, the machine that drove everyone crazy, and it gives you a riddle where you have to move things from one side and to the other, to avoid the giant shark from killing you. Can anyone help?Obvious0 47m
48m Lightforged paladin mount wouldn't it be pretty sweet if lightforged summoned a panthara or talbuk with pretty vindicator armor? i think it would. it doesn't make sense that they summon vindicator elekks. elekk's weren't discovered by the army of the light until thousands of years into their campaign, after alleria and turalyon joined. the elekks they know of don't even look like the degenerated outland elekk that is the vindicator's elekk. the eredar of argus had vindicators, so logic dictates they would have summoned an animal from argus in those days. imo, panthara would be perfect for this. eredar vindicators could maybe be a bit more... aggressive than human paladins. so therefore their mount could be a predator, instead of a prey animal.Remuurä6 48m
