Runes Blizzard dev twitter repository

Vol'jin and Chen battling Zandalari and Mogu. Cool troll history as well. Michael Stackpole did a great job!

"Micky just confirmed that Mal was indeed the first druid when asked about Xarantaur."

"So... Micky just confirmed Brewfest began in the end of year 20 or beginnings of year 21. Shortly before going to fight Proudmoore."

In "Pearl...", we are told that Chen met Grimbooze Thunderbrew. But when? Third War, when Chen fought alongside Magni? --- Most likely a bit before Chen joined Rexxar to take on Daelin Proudmoore.


"I asked Micky about the mystery surrounding Ptah and if he was the titan that fought and died against C'thun.

This was the answer:

@nykylaihellray Plenty more info regarding the Titans is on the horizon. Stay tuned."


"So, more evidence that Azshara was the leader that pushed arcane usage. Which indicates the Trolls and Night Elves didn't fight until she was pushing the arcane bit, as Trolls HAD arcane magic at least 15000 years ago. They would have had to have been overwhelmed in power."

Sean: I'm not 100% sure on this, but here's my take: I doubt it because the icon art uses the same art as a dragon turtle mount.

Nazja: Yeah, but the spell turns the caster, Arcanital Ra'kul, into a purple arcane wyrm, a serpent.
Quote:
Nazja: Are Satyrs what night elves would turn into if they gorged themselves on fel or do they deviate from the natural transformation?

Sean: IIRC, the satyr curse was specific. It was passed down from Xavius himself.

Nazja: In other words, they could turn into a different demonic being, if their transformation was unrelated to a Satyr. Right?
Quote:
Nazja: Was Sif, Thorim's wife, a watcher or a Hyldnir he fell in love with?

Sean: I believe that Sif was not a watcher. I dig the idea that she won Thorim's heart. Now that's a story I want to read!

Sean: No lore reason, but my hunch is that the devs used a doomguard model since it's similar in appearence to old school "daemons".


lukevanN: So Daemons are something different?

Sean: In Orcish, "dae'mon" = "twisted soul" or "demon". That said, I believe it's safe to assume daemons are demons.

Sean: Looping in @MickyNeilson for this one since he digs answering questions for this story. Nobundo!!


Micky: Spirit of Wind and Spirit of Air are indeed the same.

I'm glad I convinced him to start tweeting. Let's see how long it'll take him to totally burn out.

Ahaha, I'm afraid that's exactly what I was thinking.

From the moment his Twitter began, he was known and marked by the fandom. And once the fandom has left its mark upon you, it will never go away. Every encounter he has with it, from this day forward, will be more difficult and more terrifying. The fandom knows him now.

The funny thing is I convinced him to get a twitter for a reason totally unrelated to Warcraft.

Have you ever posted something relevant to the topic of discussion or do you just enjoy one-uping Fojar that much?

Perfect example right here of said fanbase that keeps driving the devs away from decent discussion with the fanbase.

This, I mean when's the last time Fojar or one of the nelf players said "we ought to see X again" X being Leoric Von Zeldig or Lord Fallowmere?

If they treat Alliance players like shit they should expect to be treated the same. The old ''Respect has to be earned, not demanded''.

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.

Point.
-----------
Your Head.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the topic. If you can't even read a thread title involving a Horde character without frothing at the mouth about Alliance injustice then you're royally fucked in the head.

If we must argue about Alliance and Horde novels, remember that usually their novels give attention to both factions no matter which one its supposed to be about. Remember, despite being about Jaina, Tides of War focused just as much if not more on Garrosh.

Why should this even be a concern though? Why should even the outside mediums be tainted by faction whining. Why should a novel focussing on Vol'jin vs a neutral enemy have to have its story rewritten to include the Alliance (read as:fucked over and dragged down the shitter) just for the sake of people incapable of seeing things in a light other then blue or red?

I'm just saying if this must be a point of contention, as it seems to be, people should remember that the others novels suggest we'll probably get some Alliance content too.

It's a problem with a specific few people. None who are moderators or admins, so you're quite able to ignore them.

It's what I do from time to time in order to maintain my sanity.

Zandalari and Mogu are both boring.

Not as boring as Stromgarde or Alterac, though.

They're quite compelling to be honest, a very good and memorable enemy, in my opinion. I will never forget that day in the future where I might kill the Thunder King.

They both share the same problem that Cataclysm's villains did and that is that they've never felt to me like an actual threat; like they're actually capable of doing some damage to us. This is because they've pretty much never won anything for all we've seen them.

They DO have personality...
