World of Warcraft expansion delayed: Blood Elves edited

I swear I saw a thread about this before somewhere. Either way, they claim next January. I lol at this and say august. They also changed the blood elf model. They were worried all the 16 year olds would cry and not play it because it wasnt brute and hulky and more feminine. So they changed it to this. The WoW forums are going ballistic.



Blood elves are magic users. They cant be warriors. They cant because they are too frail. This is Blizzards own descriptions btw. So the above pic is quite interesting! Must be huge magic books. LOTS of books in the library!

I forgot how awful the graphics in World of Warcraft are...

The expansion is said to be 39.99, thats a little steep for a expansion pack. There usually 30 dollars. City of heroes/Villains Doesn't need expansion since its 'issues' that are free. I do miss there monthly comic they used to give out.

I don't know what to say other than the Blood Elves look worse now. I don't think I've ever seen any type of elf that large, with the exception of a few here and there.

Bestbuy has set there pre-orders back to Jan 1st..
But the only reason i can think of is blood elves being warriors and having magika like mana steal would be crazy! But even though its $40 it's the amount of new conent thats in the game, if you've tasted closed beta you would take a grasph of how many more countless night s of no sleep will emerge.

in beta, they are not that bad , you can only tell the difference from that side, also with all the complaints im sure theyll change it, furthermore if you look at bloodelf art from a year ago, they ARE that beefy, but i agree i want a super skinny mage.

I don't really care if a mage is extremely skinny, but if he looks more like a warrior then I think it is a little out of place.

Instead of changing models how about some new classes Blizzard? Or revert Shaman and Paladin back to their original sides. One of the unique thing I liked about WoW was that each side had their own hybrid class. Since thats not the case, I would like to see some new classes but I doubt that will happen anything time soon.

Blizzard said no new classes becuase they were trying their hardest to balance the other ones before hand.

Also the swap with shaman and Paladins is one of the stupidest things Ive ever heard in my life. Not really the proper way to balance sides in my book.

Luckilly I stopped playing the game a year and a half ago.

Sadly, its actually $50 like buying a new game EDIT: Sorry, the special edition is $50

But this is kinda funny and the whole everyone can be the shaman on alliance and vice versa with pally is ridiculous.

Yeah, I made myself a private server of the alpha a long time ago.
I was hoping it was going to come out next month since I am literally burnt out on WoW, but it's not really delayed since they never had a release date announced. Probably learned from HL2.

While they've been wiley enough to never set a date, their reps were constantly saying Q4 2006 is the target. No longer meeting that rather loose target, at least in my mind constitutes a 'delay'. Which is good, gives them time to undo the beefification of the Blood elves from Bishi to Bloated.
