Blizzcon Open Q&A Panel

Open Q&A Panel

  • There are no plans at this time to introduce a random raid finder (LFR).
  • There are talks about how to make races and characters look unique, but we probably won’t see anything soon.
  • There are no plans to create a guild merger tool.  However, with the changes to the UI, Blizzard feels like they have made it easier to do.
  • There is concept art for female druid forms, but it’s only concept at this point.
  • The hunter dog (mastive) model looks soft.  There might be a change to the model down the road.
  • Crowd controlling will make a comeback in PvE for Cata.
  • Mage’s Blink ability on the bridge in Blades Edge Arena is broken…they will try to fix it.
  • DKs will not be seeing any of the Lich King’s abilities, like Defial or Infest.  Sorry DKs…LOL.
  • There are no plans for a Legendary Dagger.  The thought behind Legendary weapons is that they can be used by multiple classes, so a Legendary dagger is not likely.
  • The next Legendary weapon will be a staff.
  • The next Legendary weapon will most likely be available to obtain in both 10-man and 25-man raids.
  • There are no plans to change the glow of DKs eyes based on their spec.  Blue is the color of death and will remain the color of death.
  • There are no plans to give frost mage’s Water Elemental any new abilities.
  • The change to subtlety rogues’ Shadowdance ability was to make it less binary (where it either worked or it didn’t).
  • All healers should now want Spirit…including Holy Pallies.
  • The Emerald Dream (and Nightmare) will make it’s way into the expansion at some point…you can count on it.
  • There are no plans to make Achievement Points “usable” in any way.  They are there for pride.
  • Blizzard admits that the new talent trees will create a “cookie cutter” spec more than the old trees.  This is not their goal.  The new talent trees are a work in progress.
  • We will likely see more Account-bound items in the future.
  • The new guild mount is Account-bound.
  • We will see more storage space at some point in the future.
  • The Insane in the Membrane achievement will not be attainable in Cataclysm.
  • It doesn’t sound like we’ll see much of the Pandaran’s in Cataclysm.
  • There are no plans at this time to increase the amount of characters per realm we are allowed.
  • Reforging was initially meant to be a small feature, but has evolved and continues to evolve into a major change.
  • There is a lot of focus in trying to make 10-man and 25-man difficulty the same.
  • We will likely see a “Sidekicking system” in the future to allow high level players to play with low level players and be level specific.  Blizzard just has not had time to develop this yet.
  • We will likely see tabards be moved to a tab and out of our bags.  Blizzard is still working out the details.
  • Heroic Training Dummies could see added features in the future, but it’s not high on the to-do list.
  • There are new dance moves, custom dance moves, and a dance studio in development.
