Precisely. If the idea of challenge mode rewards is to provide players with cool looking stuff to set them apart from the unwashed masses (I'm kidding, of course. I'm about as casual as it gets.), this'd be right up their alley.

I'm with you on this one...

One of the great things about seeing the Nerubian war machine was how they employed smaller sub species, the Quiraji did the same (except for the use of the Obsidian creations that were later retconned to having been Titan constructs. Biological weapons SHOULD be these insect races thing... it just feels right. The very design of that tank is pretty goofy looking at it as a vehicle.

Maybe it's stolen Titan tech modified by the Mantid?

I have to disagree. Keep in mind, Mantid are not Nerubians or Qiraji. They are a new race that, if Blizzard wants to keep unique, should be different. If they were to be the same as the previous insectoid races, they why bother making a new one at all?

I also see it as a good thing that Blizzard is trying something new and not conforming to "An Insectoid Race MUST be X" expectations.

Oh, and the SI:7 questline looks awesome. (As was already told in a Buffed preview.)

I usually like archetypal. Part of the reason as to why I didn't like DAII is that every character felt like they were ment to be as anti-standard as possible.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.

I'm a big fan of the Paladin and DK sets, the DK one especially because it reminds me of Hades from God of War series. (Even though I hate everything about his design except the helmet and chains.)

I'm not so sure, personally. Belt buckles are fertility symbols before anything else. Having them glow or shoot swords or whatever just doesn't sit well with me. S'pecially when its non-human characters using it.

Hope you alliance mains will enjoy being bitch-slapped by Forsaken dicks, for an example.

That being said, I'm curious as to how the various cloth user buckles will be.
