Thank goodness. I don't like those troll dungeons at all personally.

They're sorta fun, but they're really frustrating and I didn't even really want to do them the once.

Don't want to shut you up; i'M not long here long enough to even consider that. But it's fucking annoying.
Come on, don't compare 1-boss raids to 6+ boss raids. WotA was going to have a shitload of bosses, at least 6, and maybe Ulduar-size with more than 10.

Your argument is full of fail >_<.

Apparently he knows a lot about a raid that was dropped over 10 months ago (that's when we heard the rumblings that it was scrapped). It wasn't even starting to get developed yet.

Sadly i was beaten to asking you how you know that. Given how they incorporate it into the whole Deathwing fight it's unlikely they had anything else planed for it. Cata's story may be a bit on the bland side and Thrall-centric, but it definitely looks like they had most of the stuff planned out.

For the fans of the technomage set:

The Technomage set on a Gnome!

Also, as a small bonus: A clockwork mace. And before anyone mention it, I don't freakin' care that mages cannot wear maces! ;P

Going to be careful how I phrase this, not trying to whine. But this Murozond thing feels pretty weird.

The Infinite Dragonflight line has been building up for three expansions now and with us just solving the entire mystery in Endtime ... it feels kinda anti-climatic? I mean, I get why they did it. They wanna wrap up all the dragon-related loose ends in Cataclysm but I would have thought it would be a bit dramatic than this.

I don't know. Quests aren't in yet and I haven't even fought the boss yet, so could definitely be wrong on this.

No, you're dead-on-balls accurate. This shouldn't be a 5-man conclusion tacked on to the Deathwing raid. It doesn't fit.

The whole time-travel-grab-the-demon-soul thing doesn't work. It's silly, paradoxical, problematic, and stupid. I can think of a dozen better ways to get a CoT instance to fit this expansion.

I don't know. Quests aren't in yet and I haven't even fought the boss yet, so could definitely be wrong on this.

Here's my prediction (or how I would handle it):

The story line truly ends in Dragon Soul. At the end of everything Nozdormu is is working as hard as he can for the timelines to not come undone because of the Dragon Soul incident. Perhaps during the fight the DS is destroyed in some way and can't be returned to the past properly, so Nozdormu has to use all of his power and mental capacity to set things right, more or less sacrificing himself. In the end, time is fixed, but he emerges an Infinite Dragon.

I don't know, ending the story with how Nozdormu came to be Murozond --with the beginning --would be a really cool way to treat these time travelling villains. It would have a great sense of closure and "end" the story in a much more epic way than a 5 man boss fight. I of course have no idea what blizzard would do, but if I were in charge that's how I would do it, addressing the paradox in the process.

Just some thoughts.


Even so, I'm not terribly unhappy with it anyway. I like 5 mans, Jin'do and Arthas were sufficiently epic, why can't this?

And one more thing! Stop quoting giant pictures all the time, there's no need to repeat them every five posts.

I don't really understand why 5-man's get such a bad reputation.

To me, an instance in which you go forward in time and fight the shattered remains of four of the most prominent racial leader in a post-apocalyptic world leading up to fighting the corruption of one of the dragon aspects seems sufficiently epic to me.

Though the story context of 'We have to PROVE how important it is we mess with the timeline!' thing kinda bugs me a little bit.

Here's the text from the Murozond fight, I didn't screen shot the end but it's basically Nozmordu says "I will be corrupted too eventually, you will fight me again. The cycle contunues"

So what? You have problem with chicken? YOU DON'T LIKE CHICKEN??

No deal to me

Anyway, here is the rest of the dungeon sets...



Dungeon Mail



Dungeon Leather

And finally:



Dungeon Robe... But the shoulders are currently set up the wrong way around (means: left shoulder is placed on right shoulder slot, and vice versa), so I left them out...

It looks like this though.

ARGHFGGJ!!! Why am I always arriving late for the party and commenting last when all the juicy stuff starts rolling? WHY??!! /rage

Anyway, here are my thoughts:

- Ooooohh, yeeeaaaah babyyy!!! Illidan looks boss as fuck! Now just WTB cool looking warglaives and he's set!

- Nope, still not liking the Azshara's model, it's just can't click for me. It's not just that she looks kinda like an ordinary night elf, but also that Blizzard decided to stick with a fan's vision of her instead of their own previously established appearance... yeah, GG.

- Not liking the Tyrande model, either. Nope sir. What's that... thing stuck in her head, looks like a funny hat... what a ridiculous hairdo. Also, a warrior-priestess on high heels? Yeah, very practical Blizzard.

- Kinda makes you scratch your head over Blizzard's process of creating new models and updating old ones. They do an absolutely phenomenal job on Illidan (seriously, I just can't stop looking at that model. MAKE IT PLAYABLE FFS!!!) and then they do a mediocre Azshara and Tyrande... Even makes me when I remember that screenshot of Flawless Illidan standing right next to an ugly old Malfurion. Kinda makes you wonder if Blizzard have something up their sleeve making Illidan's model so polished, hmmm.

- That Black Drake Prince. Sorry, but the first thing I thought when I first saw it was "a stretched up pygmy". ARGH, CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD NOW!

Does this Rogue-only epic questline hint at future class-specific epic questlines?

It looks like priests really won the jackpot for cool sets this time around, and good for them, it's about time.

Also, Handclaw, I noticed when browsing through the wowhead icons that there seemed to be two dungeon plate sets, the one you linked and a red one with a winged helmet. Do you know anything about that?
