So turns out most of the “rumors” from the various “sources” turned out to be true after all.
Managed to sneak in and try out the Cataclysm demo with the first wave. Credit Wyn for that one. She realized there was a section with turned off machines and a drape over a large sign. She had a hunch and yelled at me to get over there. Turns out the Cataclysm demos were up. We drew straws. She won and picked Worgen while I snapped up Goblins.
Lucky girl won a poster too.
Goblin racials are cool. There’s one where they get all faction discounts for pricing and such. Theres another one where they can shoot rockets or rocket jump (about twice the range of death grip).
Sorry, no live blogging here guys. I’ll mostly be in and out throughout the day and evening. Technical difficulties completely own me. I wish I could get a press pass. But I guess the blog isn’t quite large enough yet to attract such prestige .
Met up with the WoW.com guys last night. Will be at the TNB meet up later tonight. Will drag Lodur and Wyn with me.
Not much in terms of panels for day 1 I’m interested in. Will go back to the class panel discussion however.
By the way, Uldum is pronounced “Ol-Doom”.
Guild achievements. Guilds can level up to 1-20 based on quests, raid bosses downed, etc. Mass ressurrection. One guy can resurrect the entire guild after a wipe. Think about a guild talent tree. Joe has a feeling that the implementation of a guild leveling system is going to lead to guild housing. Its been denied for such a long time. But its been seen in other games (the progression of guild… stuff). It appears to be the next logical step.
Archaeology’s a new profession. Opens up different Path of the Titans.
Heroic Deadmines and Heroic Shadowfang Keep too. So overwhelming inside there.
More to come later tonight…
