Warcraft's BlizzCon 2017 Key Art: Jaina Proudmoore

11 posts in this topic

Representing Warcraft on this year's BlizzCon key art is none other than Jaina Proudmoore!

We haven't heard much from Jaina ever since she abandonded the Kirin Tor, but Blizzard today shared an important information. She will be representing Warcraft's key art at BlizzCon. A while ago, we wrote about World of Warcraft's next expansion and how the Kul Tiras quest armor got leaked. You can find more screenshots related to the leak over at MMO-Champion. It's very likely that Blizzard will announce a new WoW expansion at BlizzCon. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

What's this? Recent Jaina art that doesn't portray her as deranged and / or a bit angry? Madness!

I'm trying to remember the previous years' key art, and how they applied. All I can think of is the big Thrall poster, and Thrall's faded away in game.

Didn't Blizzard make Thrall less relevant to WoW following Chris Metzen retirement from Blizzard? After all, he was the voice behind Thrall (and many other characters), so I assume this decision of reducing Thrall's involvment with the plot was done to pay respect for Metzen, as players wouldn't want another one voicing Thrall.

Yeah, I can't imagine people accepting a swap of voice actor. I do wonder how Blizzard would handle it if, praying it doesn't, one of the VAs dies suddenly.

I'm sure I remember in one of his final interviews, Chris said that he was looking forward to returning to Blizz for Thrall voice work.

Sure he'll carry that on, and have a good night out as well when in town!

I'd be crushed if either Uther or Muradin's voice actors suddenly died. They also voice the default player human and dwarf, as well related NPCs.

That's what I mean - people have come to know the voice of their character and almost "bonded" with it. To change it suddenly would be a big thing, I'm sure - people would understand, of course, but maybe Blizzard make VAs tape a huge variation of lines just in case they need them in future.

      Today we have some nerdscreams and the raid setup from Method's Argus kill, stealth hotfixes for the encounter, overall endboss stats for all of Legion as well as the Exorsus World 2nd Aggramar kill video.
      The race to World First ended today as Method continued their recent dominance of Legion's raids and took down the probably final boss of the expansion, a mere 8 days after it was released (or 7 days after they started progress). We've already covered the WF itself, but there have been plenty of new stats coming after the kill, including the wipe count and raid setup. But first let's take a look/listen to the nerdscreams as the boss went down, somewhat less enthusiastic than usual I'd have to say:

      Method also shared what stealth hotfixes happened while they were progressing on the final boss, not mentioned in any official notes:
      We then have the raid composition for the kill itself, featuring 12 different classes including 3 rouges, 3 mages and 2 hunters:

      And on to the wipe count, it took 320 failed attempts to get the world soul down as we already mentioned, and here's a comparison table for all the Legion endbosses, including the time they stayed alive for:
      Raid / Boss WF Guild Wipe Count Time to kill (from region reset) Time to kill (from previous boss)  The Emerald Nightmare
      Xavius  
      Exorsus 19 17h40min
      +16h from US launch 2h43min  Trial of Valor
      Helya
       Method 223 2 days 7h
      +16h from US launch 2 days 1h  The Nighthold
      Gul'dan  
      Exorsus 247 11 days 6h
      +16h from US launch 4 days 22h The Tomb of Sargeras
      Kil'jaeden
       Method 654 19 days 5h
      +16h from US launch 11 days 19h  Antorus: the Burning Throne
      Argus the Unmaker
       Method 320 7 days 8h
      +16h from US launch 6 days 14h And finally, we also got to see Exorsus World 2nd Aggramar kill video:
      The race itself isn't quite over yet, as only Method have managed to end the Unmaker and finish up Antorus, and so the silver is still up in the air. Will Exorsus secure their expected second place finish or will the Asia guilds climb further up in this tier? Limit has also had the reset for two days now and seeing how crucial the gear from the 2nd clear is they still have quite the head start over Style War and Alpha. And let's not forget current 4th place holders Memento, who also might make it an all EU top 3. There are quite a few combinations that are open, so keep following Method.gg's live coverage to find out how it all shakes out, or check back in here when some more kills happen.

      There's a new PTR build up, bringing with it Ulduar Timewalking and an even larger focus on the new 1-100 level scaling mechanics. Blizzard are asking for help in testing the questlines in some specific zones as well, so get on there and test!
      Build 25700 (source)
      This week, we’ve implemented a new build that primarily brings bugfixes to the PTR. Our biggest focus for testing remains the new level 1-100 zone and dungeon scaling we’re introducing with 7.3.5. This is an extensive change to how loot, quests, and creatures work in the open world, so we continue to look for as much feedback as we can get about how things are working out.
      Thank you so much for all of the feedback you’ve provided so far on leveling in Azeroth. We hope you keep the feedback coming, and we’d like to ask you to especially focus some of your testing on the questlines in these specific zones:
       Blade's Edge Mountains
       Duskwood
       Hellfire Peninsula
       Icecrown
       Kun-Lai Summit
       Nagrand
       Storm Peaks
       Terokkar Forest
       Vashj'ir
       Wetlands
      Feedback on the difficulty, pacing, and most importantly, any bugs you might find while completing quests in the above zones would be most helpful. Please post your level scaling feedback here.
      We now have Ulduar Timewalking available for testing, and it should be available for the next four days or so. Please post Ulduar Timewalking feedback here.
      Also, a heads up—We’re planning a scheduled playtest of the new Seething Shore PvP Battleground. Get ready to Play With The Blues on the PTR on Tuesday, December 19 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. PST. The Seething Shore is a 10v10 race to gather Azerite on an island near Silithus, and we hope you’ll be able to join us there and test it thoroughly on Tuesday.
      As always, thank you very much for participating in the PTR!
