They haven't really taken advantage of the Blizzard store yet, there's a lot more they could be doing with it to make money.

Well, I'm glad they aren't selling anything that would actually impact the game. That always fucks things up

Not just that interview, but also that the human model for Chuck Norris is unique, and I find it odd that they would make a completely new model for a commercial (I mean, I know they did the night elf mohawk thing for Mr. T, but that actually made it into the game, so...)

I'm honestly surprised that they don't sell the novels as ebooks from the Blizzard store. And if I were them I'd bundle the e-books with an in-game pet or a starcraft avatar or something.

I'm not really surprised they'd make a custom model, seeing as the human model is so terrible they probably wouldn't want to use it to advertise

They used the night elf model (with a different head), and that model is just as bad.

Curse of the Worgen would have sold much more better with a "get a part of the code in each of the 5 issues for a cool pet, bro!". I'm really surprised they don't do this more.

Or just transform all the BlizzStore prices into BattleCoins, and give BattleCoins and discounts with products, so someone that buys novels can buy a pet.

Not really. The human model is far worse, in my opinion.

The faces of the Forsaken seem fine enough to me. I'd rather be able to cover up all those damn bones

So annual pass can actually be cancelled. One of my friend just called Blizzard customer service and had his annual pass canceled. But well, so did D3 and MOP beta is removed from his account as well.

I wonder how many of you have signed up for annual pass.

I caved in and got it shortly after it was announced.

I demand the other thread be locked, as the PTR is long since passed.

Finally killed Spine of Deathwing on heroic this week. I feel so god damned accomplished, this was the first real hard progression boss I've been on in a long time, since heroic Anub'arak I think. I don't count heroic Rag because the guild I was only did it because we had nothing else to do, we didn't take it too seriously.

I've missed this kind of hardcore raiding.

10% nerf or not, heroic Spine is tough as nails.

i was actually surprised about how easy Dragon Soul normal 10man is. I don't think i have killed the endboss of a patch (nevermuch Expansion) in a halfpug before. It's arguably much harder to come up with a full group in the first place; in the raid i'm currently (more or less) forced to tank there are only 5 core raidmembers, with no healer (i'm gonna roll a Holy Paladin when the Owl/bear/pig/man i'm leveling for the raid right now is done). So we had to look for the rest of the raid (3 healer, 2 ranged) for close to 4 hours and rushed through the dungeon in less than two. (granted i haven't been raiding before the 5 percent nerf, but i downed it with it and the 10 percent from this week. Also the other 4 killed Madness before the first 5percent nerf when my DK was still leveling, and truth be told, they are no PVEs. Like at all.) Too easy? meh, don't think so, but i actually got the impression over the past few IDs that LFR Dragon Soul is HARDER than ten man normal just because the randoms seem to get dumber and dumber with every single fucking ID, raising the artificial difficulty level. No joke. I'm actually thinking about looking for a regular raid now that literally only one person i play WoW for is left just to spare myself a great deal of pain with those pugs.

(still love the LFR though. Best thing to happen to this game since 5man epics for free.)

Many experienced and skilled people (including me) were coming to LFR only to get some elusive pieces of gear (4P set completion, trinkets, weapons). After these people got what they wanted, they stopped coming. For this reason there are more and more morons and slackers and not enough good players who want to boost them (paraphrased from Goblin).

Just killed heroic Madness!

I'm a Savior of Azeroth :3

Edit: Great, now no one wants to raid anymore. Now how am I supposed to get my mount!

Blizzard just released a series of machinima videos about the Fangs of the Father, it's narrated by Wrathion and appears to show the canon wielder of the Fangs of the Father as a male human rogue.

EDIT: Just finished watching the entire series, it ends with Wrathion saying he hopes to meet the player again in Pandaria...
