Thread: Predictions?

  1. #1

    Predictions?

    I'm guessing the ramp up to Cataclysm will be starting this week; I think tomorrow (Nov 2nd). The earthquakes have been going for a while now. It's 5 weeks until Cataclysm. It's probably 3 (maybe 4) weeks until patch 4.0.3 which will mean the end of ZG (/cry) but hopefully a bunch of new achievements and fun to work on until 12/7.

    Based on the Scourge events and the amount of hype they've been giving, I think we're going to see a lot of cool stuff happening. I'm looking forward to the elemental invasion and some gear upgrades right before Cataclysm. Also, getting my hands on any auctionable flavor items that appear.

    What do you guys expect?

    I'm hoping we get something soon! I too can't wait for the elemental war and getting some new loot/toys. I love my stuff from Operation Gnomergon (Cape/Gnome costume)

    Apparently I was off by a day. It's already starting.

    For those who can't view mmo-champ from work, all the post says so far is:
    The elemental invasions just started, new quests NPCs are available in capital cities and elementals will randomly spawn in zones!

    And there are about 8 pictures of quest givers and such.

    Also from wow.joystiq.com:

    1:30pm EDT - We're getting several reports in that elementals and cultists are attacking Azeroth.
    1:37pm EDT - It looks like there are rifts that open in various zones in Azeroth, and elementals spawn. You kill the elementals, and get some special stuff. More coming in shortly.
    1:40pm EDT - There are quest people you can talk to in Orgrimmar and Stormwind, outside of the banks.
    1:49pm EDT - You can access a Mysterious Device after you kill a spawn of elementals in any zone.
    1:59pm EDT - There's an uptick in the number of earth quakes.
    2:07pm EDT - We're getting reports that this event is now active in the EU as well and the US/NA servers.
    2:29pm EDT - Tons of quest info in screenshot form after the break.

    If anyone can find out more about what the "special stuff" is you get from killing the elementals, those of us at work would love to know.

    From what I was seeing on the PTR last night, it was either the PTR server being laggy or it's buggy.

    ZG and everything else sticks around until 4.0.3a, the "a" being the key change. Per Blizzcon, when that patch drops the world's surface will have already changed completely. The current world will persist until that patch goes live, which will probably be November 30th. The Pilgrim event will have just ended. What will happen is you'll download the patch, install, and you'll get the cinematic and new load-in screen. Then you'll have a week to run around trying to find Deathwing.

    I was running around taking screenshots of all my favorite places in old Azeroth (the Loch Modan dam, Steamwheedle Port in Tanaris (I don't know why, hours of fishing off that pier in Vanilla I guess), the Racetrack in 1k Needles, almost everywhere in Westfall.

    That brings up a stupid topic - my whole server transfer with a faction transfer. The ONE thing I'm going to really miss is Westfall. Yeah, sentimental about a damned game zone. Someone asked me why I was rolling another character once, I replied, "Because I get to quest in Westfall". Best 11-20 zone in the game.

    If you are Alliance, I noticed something yesterday while I was on my rogue twink in Stormwind. All of the faction leaders are with Wrynn talking about the earthquakes, what's up, and what to do. I haven't seen any talk about this anywhere or I missed it. It's an interesting conversation they are having so I suggest visiting the throne room.

    This next Sunday will be one month until release. Wrath was released on Nov 16, 2008 and we got the pre-release event for about 5 weeks leading up to it, and it coincided with the Halloween event. Plagued Cockroaches... very tasty!

    I'm thinking 4.0.3 will be two weeks before (11/23) as well.

    Can anyone confirm/deny whether or not the 4 bosses are available? I suspect not yet, but I'm at work.
