It is not a problem to me either other then the fact I was saving for the epic flyer on three new characters, and was hoping that spending gold on my existing three were over! lol

After buying three epic flyers and saving the money to make my Mechnohog, I am feeling the pain.

Concerning engineering: Two new recipes have been found... ;P Still, those are not very useful, but still... More recipes than we thought. :9

I feel bad for trading Immolate for SB spam. I've been through this, I don't want it again.
Pandemic was nerfed in that Affliction spells don't benefit from Ruin, so the crits will be 1.5x the damage, not 2x as before.

In hindsight the new Eradication might be not too bad. At least it doesn't get worse by putting more points into it since it doesn't appear to have an internal cooldown. I still don't like the implications though, like you said, it ruins Afflictions flavor and I enjoyed dominating everyone on fights like Grobbulus.

Goddamnit, even the Felhunter got nerfed because of SL! GRAAR NOT MY BEAUTIFUL BRAIN EATING PUPPY!

Run for your lives, the sky is falling!
Ok, that makes more sense. I don't normally play affliction at endgame levels, so I'm not terribly suprised I messed that up. In light of that, maybe they engineered Pandemic to be like Runic Focus, the DK passive that gives double damage on spell crits. If not (which I doubt would suprise no one), then they could add that to Malediction, since they've removed the bonus to CoE now.

It wouldn't be the first time. Not long ago, they discovered a company was the same that produced the bots for his game.

You know, sold games and sold bots.

Arthas left Frostmourne in the snow? No f'in way. That's got to be another runeblade, right?

I kind of figured the fact it looks nothing like Frostmourne would sort of give that away.

More then likely it is going to be one of the daily quests for the Tourney, like another Death Knight of some type was trying to raise a Frost Wyrm similar to how Arthas did it, only to be foiled by the players in mid summoning while his sword is in the ice.

I wish I could copy my characters over to the PTR to try it out.

MMOChampion updated with a few new models, including what looks to be runed, stone protodragons and "Thorem", ostensibly, an uncorrupted Thorim.

I wonder what those dragons are- constructs patterned after protodrakes, the original form of protodrakes, or modified protodrakes?

A new dragonflight, using Veranus, probably.

And that Thorem... I don't believe it's Thorim, not the current one, anyway. Perhaps, it's just Loken :S.

Believe what you want to believe. I just want to point out that when you check his model with modelviewer, the name is spelled as Thorum.

Usually the model names are spelled in such a way as to better pronounce them. Thus Thorim is probably pronounced "Thor-em" instead of "Thor-im" just like C'thun is "Kath-un" instead of "Sith-un." Probably helps the model developers when they're speaking with the creative team about different characters.

So, well, it doesn't fit with his personality.

No at all.
