Hour of Twilight and Patch 5.0 Miscellany – Faction Storylines, Responsibility for War, and more

by on December 1, 2011

There have been lots of great posts over the last day, and some of them are quite hard to categorise.

So, here are some of the best bits and pieces that have cropped up over the last few days of Patch 4.3 madness, that otherwise might be missed:

  • In An Age does a great take-down of the Blizzard “Factionally imbalanced?” Developer Chat – “Bottom line: the Horde interaction is multifaceted with many conflicting goals and desires among the groups. Alliance interaction is one-dimensional, for basically no reason. Horde has Wheel of Time meets Dune whereas Alliance has goddamn Jack and Jill meets See Spot Run.”
  • Tesh has some fantastic Druid-themed Signet Rings available for sale. Great presents for the lazorchicken or bear in your life.
  • Blessing of Kings would like to see the Horde’s players forced to take responsibility for the sack of Theramore“One of the problems with this method is that it’s never the player’s fault that the Alliance and Horde are at war. It’s always that angry Garrosh, or stupid Varian. If only they were sensible and intelligent, then all these problems could be avoided.”
  • And Riorel at Postcards from Azeroth takes the End Time dungeon and produces one of his most evocative images ever

Any other titbits from the last few days that you think should get more publicity?

Thanks for the mention! Shapeways really does some cool stuff, and it’s great to see designs I made at home printed in 3D. Would that I had more time to do all sorts of signet rings. There’s what, 31 specs now? I have all sorts of ideas, but oh, so little time.

Thanks also for the other links. I’ve been out of the loop for a little while, and those are great articles.

@Tesh – No worries! I love the idea – and I’d definitely suggest that now’s a good time to start making ‘em, what with Christmas and all!

Ooh, thanks! I took about eleventeen bajillion shots trying to capture the lightning, finally got one then didn’t use it. Heh. Wasn’t tremendously happy with the original shot but fiddled and fiddled :D
