A mount for 2 silver? Good price.

Since people have been wondering about Felwood, I'll make a list of some of the most major changes. I'm not sure why this zone is ready for testing, as it seems rather unfinished.

-The Deadwood Furbolgs have fortified their encampments with Grizzly Hills style architecture.
-There are two new Emerald Circle towns, one that's name escapes me, and Whisperwind Grove. Strangely they only use night elf architecture and there are only two tauren in the towns, everyone else is a night elf.
-Bloodvenom Post has quite the ironic fate, it was reinforced with the new orc buildings, only to have been overrun by oozes. All of the inhabitants are now "Bloodvenom Slimeslaves".
-The Bilgewater Cartel has set up a mining/deforesting operation in northern Felwood from a town that currently has no name in the beta. The druids of the Emerald Circle are disgusted at the goblin's actions, but refuse to act out of fear of horde retaliation. The local worgen have no such qualms however.
-Talonbranch Glade was destroyed, exactly how I'm not sure, and a group of worgen lead by Denmother Ulrica have settled in the area and are waging war against the Bilgewater Cartel's deforestation. For some reason, while the horde quests refer to it as a large worgen settlement, and task you with killing worgen npcs in a battlefield area, there are only two worgen in Talonbranch Glade itself. All the other npcs are night elves.

however, i personally look forward to the undoubtably just rule of Emperor-King Fenran
Is it just me or is the whole fenran/moria situation starting to seem like Alexander the great and his mother olympias?

In the sense that a conniving mother is attempting to leverage her progeny's birthright to gain power, yes.

I heard that some humans and dwarves members of the Argent crusade in the Plaguelands begin to find the Horde's presence unwelcomed...Is it right ?
Also, could someone who is in the beta tell us more about the Kirin Tor political issue toward the Horde?

I think Alterac Mountains isn't still properly developed, and Dalaran Crater is part of it.

As for Ambermill, I know there are quests, but I haven't found transcripts anywhere yet :S.

Going through the pictures of the Grim Batol 5-man posted over at MMO-Champion, a few things I found interesting.

First, there will indeed be Skardyn in the instance (I recall some wondering when their concept art was finally shown a week or so ago). Second, it seems that, depending on which egg spawned them, the Twilight dragons are named in a way that designates it (Azureborne and Crimsonborne are the ones I'm seeing). Interestingly, that's all there seems to be, which makes me wonder if there are any Twilights made with Green or Bronze flight eggs (haven't really seen any at this point, have we?).

I don't think we've seen any other flight's eggs yet either, but those make sense. We know Deathwing pulled the whole Day of the Dragon thing to get Alexstraza's eggs. He clearly had acquired some of those, and with the whole Nexus War going on, no body would have noticed if some blue dragon eggs went missing (perhaps that is even the reason some of the Black Flight came to "defend" Wyrmrest). I imagine it'd be nearly impossible for him to get Bronze eggs, they're likely hidden in the time streams, and the Green Flight is likely protecting their eggs too after the events of DotD.

True enough, though I'm trying to recall bits from Night of the Dragon. Wasn't it said that Sinestra had a few eggs from the Green and Bronze flights? Or was it just "other flights" and that was that?

I'd look it up myself, but I can't seem to find my copy (good riddance wherever it went).

Yeah, she'd been collecting eggs from every flight for centuries, although the bulk of the ones she had were her own.

Its quite touching when she says "The same people that called this land home in life continue to do so in death.The Alliance seeks to take this land and deny the will of the founders of this nation. I will not allow it. Lordaeron belongs to the forsaken. Always and forever." I am actually developing a respect for the forsaken as a faction. Perhaps...perhaps I've been far too hasty in my judgments. The Tirisfal/Silverpine quests have really been the best playing experience I've had since I started playing WoW. I'm liking this. Maybe when I faction change my mage, I'll be going undead instead of orc.
I wonder what she thinks about the Lordaeron refugees, who aren't undead, and who have a claim to their homeland as well. A lot of just sounds like propaganda if she is going to pull that line. Just makes the conflict a lot more interesting if you have the Alliance trying to take back Lordaeron for the living refugees while Sylvanas is keeping it for her undead followers. Should have more quests talking about it from both sides.

Hmmm, I certainly did not see any skardyn (unless those troggs are placeholders for them), but another interesting thing I saw was a room called the Lifebinder's Cell filled with Alexstrasza's eggs. Poor Alex, it's the D-day all over again for her. I feel sorry for her.

Yeah, seems Blizzard is recycling plots once again.

FFFFUUUU.

Or perhaps that was where she was held in Day of the Dragon and now they're just using it to store her eggs.

But, whatever, this is a plot I'm actually okay with Blizzard reusing, simply because it seems totally in-character for Deathwing.

Yeah, it's possible, but then again we have Alexstrasza's eggs that remained unhatched for... since the Second War? Hmmm unlikely.

NotD makes a plot point of this and established that Sinestra has been using magic to preserve the eggs. She has still-good eggs that have remained unhatched for centuries.

Oh, I forgot about that egg-preserving program again, but you're right.

It's also shown quite clearly that the Twilight's Hammer are stealing eggs at the Vermilion Redoubt and are taking them through a portal (likely into Grim Batol).
