I've had a bit of time to cool down (and rest my weary fingers), so I'm not as angry as I was. Disappointed though, certainly, but this sort of turnout is pretty much par for the course.

I'll get around to fixing my typos at some point. Not really interested at this point, heh.

That was a good one. Maybe they will still get back to it though - I think at some point (next expansion?) they're going to have to rebuild Stormwind's damage. I have a feeling they'll make the Park actually a good zone and make a NE/Worgen area maybe. Who knows. (speaking of which, I recently went in there again... dear god, there are still NO venders in any of the buildings... the only npcs are standing around that moonwell and the one that walks back and forth... really? *really?*)

These are the few questions I thought were good besides the Worgen District one:
-Tabards Tab/Closet (if this had not been asked at Blizzcon, but I do enjoy people hammering Blizzard about it )
-The smaller raids question (maybe this was already covered, I can't remember.. I found the answer interesting though)
-More than one legendary if only for an actual confirmation on the legendary staff
-Faction imbalance question had a really good answer
-What they regret not making launch had a nice answer

Questions that were absolutely god-awful, beyond stupid:
-Anything involving heirlooms
-Anything involving "what is available in 4.0.3a?" (there is a fucking blue post)
-"Will achievement points be spendable?" (I want to personally stab everyone who fucking asks this question every fucking Q&A... seriously, they need to die a grusome, grusome, horrible death)
-"Southrend" guy (this was hands down the stupidest question I've ever seen asked in a Blizzard Q&A)
-Anything that was fucking obvious (DK starting zone, number of tier items, if worgen/goblins could use heirlooms, how do you get a guild mount, etc)


The Archaelogy one, though totally expected, disappoints me too though. I was really hoping it'd be usable in 4.0.3a (which technically does not violate the reason he gave in his answer about stuff being placed "in the new world"). Mostly since you're starting from skill point "1" with this I am so fucking excited for that profession that I don't want to wait, and I don't want to try and balance leveling it and leveling my character at the same time

They've been dancing around the tabards thing since the alpha, it's nice to finally get some sort of answer, even if it's not the one I wanted.

Well, Archaeology actually gives you XP as you level it. I'm actually glad it's not coming out till Cataclysm, because that way I don't have to force myself to level it without a flying mount. That would be ugly.

I'm f'n around with a Night Elf Druid right now, just to do Darkshore and Ashenvale before they get wiped, and gathering a insane amount of herbs as I go (no one is leveling in this area besides me on my server, I think I killed every rare mob in Tedrassil last night) and Herb gathers are granting a small, but still nice amount of exp every time. I can't verify about crafting profs, but I assume Mining and likely Skinning do this as well.

Not skinning, because that would make powerlevelling far, far to easy. Mining, yes, and archaeology. I haven't tested it in a while, but a few weeks ago on the beta I was getting about 30k XP from each archeology fragment I found at level 84. At that rate, you could honestly level up to 85 just from archaeology in a reasonable amount of play time.

Edit: from 80, that is. Again, levelling archaeology without a flying mount would be too painful.

I tend to think the bad questions are a 50/50 thing. 50% of the responsibility goes to the people asking things that can be easily looked up or just random directions see Southred.(then again I wouldn't put it pasted blizzard)

But just as much responsibility falls on Blizzard's people for answering the questions they know they have answered before or they just want to give a joke answer too.

I guess it all depends on what you see the propose of these chats are. If its to get information out they clearly don't do that. Because it simple enough to plant questions to be answered. But if its just to interact with people and make them think they matter I guess people keep giving them questions.

I just wish Uldum question was "what were your originally planing back in 2004" because I bet good money it wasn't Egypt.

Couldn't anyone bloody ask if Tyrande will be getting a new model and what the purpose of Lor'themar was? Just to remind them that this is stuff that needs to be done

I thought the chat was kinda short, but I'm glad they at least answered my question about Southrend.

Surprised a question about female worgen didn't pop up. Guess Blizzard made sure to ignore them. Some people just seem to want refuse to accept that nothing is going to happen 3 weeks before release.

Even if nothing happens, I think players want Blizzard to know of their dissatisfaction.

And leave it to the WoW community (or at least the vocal minority) to whine about something futile and pointless. Hell who am I kidding that happens about everything in this world even outside the game.

Character models and customization are pointless?

Flying mounts in Azeroth and Outland are available at 60, and is 500g grand total (250 each for Azeroth and Outland), and Northrend flying is 68 and 500 more. You could do all the pre-Cata zones easily. Once Cata HITS, of course...

Sigh, I don't know who's more stupid, those who make stupid questions or those who answer them.

SERIOUSLY.

Southred isn't that bad. At least, they didn't ask about which were going to be the new playable races and new main villain or when is the game going to be released.

Thanks god they didn't.

I'm sure someone did - they probably had enough of a filter to realize that was a dumbass question tho.

I just realized, the worgen district answer explains why the Howling Oak is so lackluster compared to the Goblin Slums. Blizzard knew what they were doing from the start with goblins, but the change of the worgen from Stormwind to Darnassus might have been too far into development to do much for it.

At this point I'm thinking they really should have just given Worgen and Goblins capitals, and also expanded the Echo Isles and Gnomergan even more than they did to give every race a proper city. Now what you have is that Worgen is essentially the only race that has nowhere to call home.

Well, the draenei can't be the only Alliance race that's ignored, right?

RIGHT?

Honestly, this is pretty fracking stupid. The goblins get a revamped zone to level in as well as a quasi-capital (doesn't have capital city status like Org, but it might as well be)...

And the worgen get a tree. A hollow tree.

Although I'm still holding out hope that if Kul Tiras is released in a future patch, that it's Alliance only (and somehow the worgen get their own area on there? I dunno). But I'm not counting on it, considering Tol Barad is supposed to be part of Kul Tiras and it's now basically a neutral zone.

Now granted I don't think this whole capital thing is the biggest issue in the world, I also realize I'm in the minority on caring about Worgen presence in the gameworld. It doesn't bother me, but it bothers the majority of the people on this fourm, and they are probably more correct than I am about this.

I would be curious as to why the descison was made to make the Goblin and Worgen starting areas phased and not able to be visited after completion. I understand the DK experince was a big, cinematic type success, but even with that you could go to Acherus and the Ruins of the Scarlet Enclave once you were in the game world.

(As a side note, are non-DKs able to fly up and visit Acherus in Cata? I have never seen anyone ask or confirm the answer to this question.)

You can fly up to Acherus after the Cataclysm. It's not like it got removed or there was a huge invisible wall there.
