I figured I'd devote a separate thread to this.

Are there any specifics people want to know about the expansion, etc?

Yeah, can you find out when Blizzard wants to put in premade characters so I can figure out how Seal of Blood compares to current seals? :P  My expansion character is riding on this, hehe.

Jewelcrafting.

Everything. I know that you can make fist weapons, necklaces, and rings...but tell me about prospecting, and gaining gems. Are current gems used or just new ones?

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

I've a couple of questions for you:

- Q1 Have Blizzard made any attempt at changing the "raid culture"?

- Q2 What PvP alterations have been made?

- Q3 Any sign of actual new classes? and not just races.

- Q4 Any sign of this "Hero" theme that was floating around ages ago

- Q5 Any major combat changes?

- Q6 Have professions been improved to be viable again?

- Q7 Whats the general 'feel' of the expansion? good or bad?

cheers

I can answer these and I am not even in the Beta. If you even pay ANY attention to anything WoW related then you wouldn't even be asking.

1-Umm..they are changing the raids to 25 man at most. This has been talked about several times. That is about it.
2-No more ranks. Honor acts as currency. Again, this has been talked again several times.
3-Nope. None. Again...several times.
4-Nope. Again...see above.
5-This one I can't answer.
6-They will add more stuff, but other than that I can't answer it.
7-This one is all you, John.


So I guess 4 out of the 7. Not bad for someone who isn't in the Beta yet.

I can't answer on the culture of the raids - no one is above level 62 yet.

World PvP is more prominent in the outlands, and actually has a purpose - there's a city that is player controlled.  No new classes, no hero classes.

Combat works mostly the same.

I can craft me some greens that rival AQ20 epics.

And I'm really enjoying it thus far.

Ok Daggerstrike, apologies for indulging Keeper and asking him some questions I was interested about. Maybe the information is available, but I was still under the impression that Blizzard might give us the Hero system or atleast some new god damn classes to play with.

But yeah, thanks for your uplifting reply...

25 Man raids should be noted that that doesnt mean ALL raids are 25 man...just new ones.

I was just saying that if you even spent a minute looking for this information you wouldn't feel this need to ask it. He could be answering more important questions...like about Prospecting =P

Nope, Blizzard is silent about the release date - as usual. However, considering that they have opened up the beta and lifted the NDA, that should mean that the game is very close to completition. Various people say that it should hit stores by the end of November, and that seems like a pretty valid estimate.

Edit: Oops, I meant November :) Thanks for the heads-up, Prophet.
