Items: Teir 4 is on Beta! Sorta.
Teir 4 showed up in a patch saturday morning, on vendors in Shattrath. It can only be purchased with a special token. Where this token comes from... we have no idea. There are also an assload of things you can buy from the Aldor and Scryers in Shattrath. And quests you can do to gain rep with either faction. Which side will you choose? I can't tell much difference between the two, except that Scryers = Arcane Resist, Aldor = Shadow Resist.
Now I ran out of space on my guild's server. We'll try this one and see how it goes. If this hosting site has issues... well I'm not sure what I'll do for hosting images. There's the folder... take a look through if your curious about the items I found.
I have discovered the cutest thing in Beta. I squealed at Lindele about it for a while. But I have found...
Well actually... just one. There is one little Draenei girl running around in the refugee camps in Shattrath's lower city. And she is the cutest damn things I've seen so far.
Horde: Silvermoon to Undercity completed!
The McWeaksauce boys are gone - and in their place we have a fluffy new way to get from Silvermoon to Undercity! In typical blood elf style, why bother with boats or zepplins... when you can just teleport?
The Silvermoon teleporter room is behind the room where the high regent is, in the Sunspire. In Undercity, it's that new side room right off the top (ground) level. Can alliance use it to gain a back door to Silvermoon? No idea yet.
Lore: Are you Loyal to Illidan?
Something I'm finding in Outland very frequently are references to mobs in outland that serve Illidan.
Point 1: Illidan is in the service of Kil'jaeden. This was established in WC3x.
Point 2: Kil'jaeden is the highest ranking remaining leader of the Burning Legion.
Point 3: The Burning Legion is beseiging the Dark Portal in an attempt to gain access to Azeroth directly.
Point 4: Illidan's forces have seiged control of much of Outland, including the defeat/capture of Magtheridon.
A good example is I found doomguards with little Broken prisoners. I forget their exact name, but it had "Illidan" in the name, inferring that they were in the service of Illidan. Furthermore, a demon doomguard in Ramparts made reference to "his master will be your undoing!"
Hypothesis: Could Kil'jaeden have seized control of his upstart little half-demon/half-kaldorei power mongering Illidan and integrated Illidan's forces with the Burning Legion's forces for the purpose of the assault on Azeroth? Essentially... Illidan goes mad after his defeat at the hands of Arthas and the Lich King, and falls under the sway of the Burning Legion, becoming a lacky of the Legion? And possivly Kael'thas and Lady Vashj are either following in lock step with Illidan or resisting him. Which it is, I'm not clear on.
Anyway, that's all for now. Short and sweet. Look at the pictures! Go now! :P
