In case you missed the news from BlizzCon, <A HREF="http://www.wowinsider.com/">WoW Insider</a> has some good coverage of the event and several of the panels. The main article of interest:

<A HREF="http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/08/04/blizzcon-day-2-liveblog-session-roundup/">Panel Liveblogs</a> - good writeups for many of the WarCraft panels at the show. These include photos as well, plus a summary of the Q&As at the end of each panel.

For those interested (and if you're here, you probably are), the Lore panel Q&A liveblog is missing a couple interesting points (I managed to catch the Q&A portion during a live broadcast of the show which unfortunately focused almost entirely on the tournements and I was lucky to see even the Q&As like this). These include the fact that Turalyon and Alleria were meant to be on one of Outland's portal worlds that never made it in BC. The Emerald Dream question also hinted that there is actually a connection with Malygos' sudden madness as well. The Arthas fight was actually a suggestion that Jaina (Alliance) or Sylvanas (Horde) would help during the fight - one that Chris Metzen seemed to like a lot. And finally, the answer to the question about Arthas' sister Calia was shortened a bit - more or less Chris admitted to forgetting about her. He said he would look into what exactly happened to her, and whether or not she was interesting enough to mention again.

Other interesting links:
<A HREF="http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/08/06/what-we-learned-from-blizzcon/">BlizzCon Summary</a> - as it sounds, a summary of everything they learned at BlizzCon.

<A HREF="http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/08/06/hands-on-with-zulaman/">Hands on with Zul'Aman</a> - short article about the upcoming instance. If you're interested in Zul'Aman, <A HREF="http://blizzplanet.com">BlizzPlanet</a> also has some <A HREF="http://blizzplanet.com/news/1590/">details and screenshots</a> from BlizzCon.

<A HREF="http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/08/07/two-new-tcg-sets-and-new-loot-card-series-coming-in-november/">New TCG Sets</a> - Strange this one isn't announced on the <A HREF="http://entertainment.upperdeck.com/wow/en/default.aspx">WoW TCG homepage</a>, but two new TCG sets were announced at the show. After Fires of Outland (on shelves Aug. 22nd!), the next set will be <b>March of the Legion</b> which introduces "sub-factions" (they speculate this will be like Argent Dawn, etc), demonic allies, and new powers for Heroes. Also on the horizon is the <b>Feast of Winter's Veil collector's set</b> which is a special holiday-themed set including "stuff from the ingame holiday to use in the TCG, as well as 10 exclusive game cards, and Pet mini-cards."

I think he mentioned 'this man got you Sylvanas and Jaina in the Arthas encounter'... so I doubt we will see faction-exclusive versions of the encounter, nor one or the other. And really, both reflect the two sides of Arthas' personality really well.


Moonkin itemization will get better

!!!! YAY!

A lot of interesting stuff, though.

Paladins won't be as reliant on Spell Damage!

Yay!

Now it would only matter if any Paladins are even gonna freaking remain after DK opens up.

And L now Aldruid? You bring shame on your fingernails.

Aldrius
08-07-2007, 07:54 PM
What's wrong with L?

Does he challenge the creepiness of your avatar?

Oh please. I can bring back psycho picture if you want.

When I meant you shame your fingernails it's because L is always eating his.

I think.

He just likes putting his thumb on his mouth because he is a complete slut.

I didn't know you swung that way Aldruid.

Aldrius
08-07-2007, 08:19 PM
I didn't say I was attracted to him.

Just that he was a complete slut. (omg spoilers)

Yuber8900

And I never said you were.

Aldrius

Didn't you, Yuber? Didn't you?

Yuber8900
08-07-2007, 08:32 PM
Didn't you, Yuber? Didn't you?

Yes, but that's besides the point.

And what I say yes to is you saying "I assume and read into things too much don't I."

Aldrius
08-07-2007, 08:40 PM
And what I said yes to was you saying...

"I assume and read into things too much don't I."!

"I assume and read into things too much don't I."!

You see in this instance "I" is not a definative and thus "I" can mean many things.

Like way back in the whee beginnings of this mess when I meant "swung that way" I meant "swung the way of randomly insulting anime characters".

In the arena of logic I fight unarmed!

Nice summaries, Warlock.

Ahh... but is it truly an insult to be a slut?

Being a slut isn't usually something to be proud of I would think.

It´s the eye shadow, isn´t it?

Who doesn´t love a detective with eye shadow?

Or maybe it´s the unrealistic and nearly impossible speculations that he cooks up out of nowhere that turns you on?

Am i on the right track here?

Who the heck are you talking about?

This discussion is just weird.

Vicious

Take a look at Aldruis avatar, he´s the one to blame.

Kenzuki
08-08-2007, 09:40 AM
WTF is THAT?

Aldrius

The world's greatest detective.

Kenzuki

The world's greatest detective.

Inspector Clauso?

Aldrius
08-08-2007, 10:52 AM
...you didn't even spell his name right...

Kenzuki
08-08-2007, 10:56 AM

Monk.

Aldrius
08-08-2007, 01:00 PM
Monk.

Batman.

There are a lot of world's greatest detectives.

Kerrah
08-08-2007, 01:06 PM
Batman.

There are a lot of world's greatest detectives.

But Adrian Monk wins them all.

Vicious
08-08-2007, 01:24 PM
You didn´t answered Aldrius....got something to hide?

Aldrius
08-08-2007, 01:37 PM
*Throws hot water in Vicious' eyes and runs off*

L>Monk.

Well, actually I shouldn't say that because I've never watched Monk... but still.

Yuber8900
08-08-2007, 02:20 PM
L is the world's top three greatest detectives.

Kenzuki
08-08-2007, 03:45 PM
Who the hell is "L". That like the artist formerly known as Prince?

Aldrius

He calls himself L so that no one learns his real name.

Which happens to be L anyway.

Yet you were the one who so vehemently defended Arthas...

Arthas isn't emo. Infact, he's the opposite of emo considering he had no soul.

Exactly.

L thinks emotions are detrimental to deducing and investigating and thus discards them with ease.

And Arthas wears black......

Kenzuki
08-08-2007, 06:22 PM

Priests wear black too, but they aren't generally emo. Frustrated by the lack of *** maybe, but not emo.

Aldrius
08-08-2007, 06:27 PM

He's an insomniac... that's why his eyes are black anyway... I don't really know how that works...but that is the idea.

...I don't see what mascara has to do with emotions, though...

There are emotionless drag-queens out there too.

Kerrah

Not all priests are catholic ones.

I don't really think the name is necessary proof...

I mean he spent the whole manga ignoring his hot girlfriend and fucking around with L's mind.

You need to read between the lines to understand.
