Random Thoughts on Cataclysm

More

1.) Love the Worgen. Named mine, a rogue,"Ginsburg."


2.) Hate fighting underwater. Too much to think about

3.) Wish we had another hero-class to fiddle with.

4.) I think they decided against that because they really blew it with the Death-Knights, who--initially at least--could do damn near anything.

5.) I've been thinking a lot about how trailers work in WoW and why I didn't like the last two, as much as the first two. I think the first two focus on what you can do in the game, they are almost interactive. When Kenyatta saw the draenei paladin, her thing was, "You should play that guy. He looks bad-ass." 

The other two are more traditional. They play like movies, and tell you about other people being heroes. But I'm only vaguely interested in what Arthas or Deathwing are doing. I want to see what my Worgen is going to be doing. First two trailers after the jump. You are not prepared...
