By now you’ve heard quite a lot about the upcoming expansion otherwise known as Warlords of Draenor but few people know what’s planned for the next. Back in 2012, Blizzard COO Paul Sams stated:
“I got the pitch from [Blizzard senior vice president of creative development Chris Metzen] of what they plan for 6.0, and I’m pretty geeked up about it. They already know what they’re going to be doing for multiple expansions ahead.”
This is great news for millions who still play and love this game. So what started as a rumour has now been confirmed.
I logged into the live server to do my Darkmoon Dailies after midnight so I could get in my extra day of dailies only to find a loud booming voice on loading screen. It said,
I remember you, in the mountains…
I said to Cool, What the heck was that? he said What? So I told him and he replies, “That’s Thorim, he’s the only one I know who says that…” Ok, but why am I hearing that, I thought? So when I went through the Darkmoon portal I heard something again.
Hmm, ok I know that audio queue for sure.
Seems DBM has added some sound files to the loading screens which I’m told can be turned off via a setting in DBM. Since, I’ve only heard a handful of these so far, I’ll see if I can stand it but then again I’m on the Beta more than live these days so it probably won’t be much of an issue.
No, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO! – XT
Simple fools! Time is the fire in which you’ll burn! – Prince Malchezaar
Oww, you… you…infuriate me! – Lord Rhyolith
Suffer, mortals, as your pathetic magic betrays you! – Sindragosa
Although I did get a game crash as soon as I jumped into the tonk for my daily. Playing on the wireless sure didn’t do me any favours for the number of tickets I needed, but I was pretty tired though.
The other ones I’ve noticed so far:
I did check my armory profile in case they decided to do something there too but didn’t see anything. I didn’t think too much about the jokes this year until I saw the Warcraft Pets one. But then again, wouldn’t you want Blizzard putting most of their effort into Mists? From what I’ve seen on the beta, I haven’t been disappointed with the content or scenery. Well, the female Pandaren do tilt their head a bit too much for my liking, but as long as all the bugs get worked out, I’m really looking forward to playing Mists on live servers.
Anyone notice anything else today?
Have you seen Crabby the Helper yet? Very similar to the Microsoft Office helper… Providing you with handy hints and upcoming changes – today he told me that priests are getting a buff… who woulda thunk it?? Don’t believe me? Visit your Armory page today and see for yourself :P
In other news, two new Halloween masks have been found on the 4.1 PTR data files. If the past is any indication of future races being in the next expansion then I predict a bit of Panda Mania to ensue. To whet your taste buds, check out the trailer below :)
Edit: So who was caught out with the April Fools Jokes this year? I must admit the wings would have been cool…
If you happened to look at your Armory profile during this year’s April 1st, otherwise known as April Fools Day, you would have seen something like this. Although some people had a somewhat criminal display showing up in their recent activities, Cymre had a less criminal view.
Never-the-less, Cymre makes a rather striking Tuskarr. Don’t you think? :P
I have one question though, why am I wearing pants?
