Wee thanks for all this!

I'm just starting to get concerned that I'm not going to get to do much of anything with my priest or get any of the swank class gear because of the expansion (I just hit 52 this weekend) so some of these things are cool.

Don't know if you know or anyone else does but how about bg's are there going to be any new ones in the expansion?

The Arena is new, but it's not finished yet, so no testing done yet.

Ah yes the Arena...hmm.

I had other questions...
Oh yes, have you looked at fishing/cooking will there be swank new things you can buff up with? (I'm fishing while at work, every time I get a phone call I switch over to watching the bobber :) mmm winter squid!)

Not enough fishing skill to test. But there are a ton of new recipes/patterns/etc about that I haven't begun to fully discover yet.

Thanks for the great post - I'm so excited!

Haha, yes yes... Though I think I'll like playing a Draenei.

Thank you very much for the screenshots, and those will put paid to the silly "we don't anything but what they posted" rumours (which was silly anyway).

That's why I post them. Enjoy!

I'm getting more and more tempted to make a Draenei shammy the more I read about BC...

Thank you for all the info and the screenshots!

One question - I didn't quite understand what you meant in the post, but will we get automatically flagged in Outland on a PvE server?

Thanks for all the info and the screenshots :)

No you will not be auto-flagged for PVP in outland on a PVE server.

You *WILL* be auto-flagged for PVP if you are alliance and enter the Ghostlands/Eversong/Silvermoon instanced zone, on a PVE server.

You *WILL* be auto-flagged for PVP if you are horde and enter the Bloodmyst/Azuremyst/Silvermyst/Exodar instanced zone, on a PVE server.

wait, er... instanced? As in, random non-grouped people cannot just run into each other in one of these new zones, you have to be in a party to enter? Are these zones for questing only and designed to be instanced for your safety, or something different? *confused*

It's like the Deeprun Tram. It's an instance, but there's only 1 instance that EVERYONE can enter. However in this case while there's only 1 instance, only those with the expansion can enter it. However ANYONE that has the expansion on their account can enter this instance. But there's only 1 instance of it.

Sorry for the stupid question but is the PVP in Outlands for the PVE servers too? I play on Kargath, PVE server, so would be a lot of getting used to if when I venture on to Outlands I get flagged PVP.

Thanks.. :D

*points up one post*

Outlands is *not* PVP flagged.

Thanks for the information! I was very curious about the location of the zones and how lowbie Dranei and Blood Elves will get to move around to the other areas.

I wonder if Blizzard will retrofit repuatation for major factions so if you want to ride annother faction's mount you aren't handing in 1,000,000 peices of runecloth, just 1,000 (ie not nerfing it but not making it such an obnoxious grind)

Any notes on the Caverns of Time? It seems like no one is talking about that.

Caverns of Time aren't finished yet, so no one is going in there. There's many other Outland instances to test atm.

May vary by class, member FDIC, your milage may vary.

this made me giggle :D

Batteries not included, some assembly required, not a water toy.

Thanks for this post! Reading these have made me so excited for the expansion! :D

So let me get this right...
To get to or from the new Draenei zone, you can take a boat from the lowbie zone of Darkshore at Auberdine, that is easily accessible by most Alliance. I know that even if I start in Stormwind, I can still take the tram to IF and run across the Wetlands to Menthil, with only minor problems, by level 12 or so.
To get to or from the new Blood Elf zone, one must run across Eastern AND Western fracking Plaugelands?!?!?!

Pardon me while I /boggle a bit and say WTF?
I tend to see a little disparity here.
How in the world are the Belfs supposed to get out of the starting zone if they have to run across a MINIMUM level 55 and level 50 zones to do so? I remember being a lowbie undead at 22 and decided to stick my head in the WPL because I didn't know what was there at the time. Almost everything up to Felstone field aggroed on me and immediately came to chew my face off. I'm sure the undead mobs in the field would have come running too had they not been farmed to near extinction. (OK, maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit here, but not by much. I did draw a LOT of aggro from several different mobs just for walking under the arch to WPL. :)
There has got to be a Zepp or something for the Belfs because it would be ridiculous to have you spending all afternoon to do a naked run of mass suicide... just to be able to get to the rest of the Horde zones at level 20. That's like telling the Alliance Humans they have to run through Burning Steppes, BRD and Searing Gorge to be able to get to IF!

Is it just me or does this sound seriously sporked to you?

Other than that I'm pretty excited about the new Hunter and pet changes. Whee!
Too bad Hunters STILL don't get another stable slot. *sigh* Right now I would quest and grind for one of those.

I haven't fully explored the Belf zone yet, but I'm hoping there's a boat from Eversong to Tirisfal.

Addendum: I did hear a rumor that there's a Zepplin from Undercity to Silvermoon, but I haven't found it yet.

How do you get to be a part of beta testing? I've always been curious and it sounds like such fun!!

Going to Blizzcon, winning PVP contents on previous test realms... knowing someone at Blizzard... that's about it.

Quick question: Do you know if hunters get a 3rd stable slot?

No, there will be no new stable slots, Blizzard has stated the hardware cannot handle them.

Bummer! D: Thanks though!

But you don't really need them. In order to learn new pet skills, just fight the beast, and you'll learn the new pet skill.

o_O Is that new for the expac? Cuz currently, you have to actually tame an animal and fight with it at your side for several minutes before you learn the skill.

Yah I know, my main is a hunter. And yes, that's one of the new changes. You just fight a beast to learn it's skills and teach them to your pets.

Sweet!!! That is just as good as a 3rd stable slot. :D :D :D :D :D :D
