Cat Context 46: Warlords of Draenor – Insta-90s, Proving Grounds, the Ability Pruning
Blizzard has been a font of information about the upcoming Warlords of Draenor over the past couple of weeks, and so Liore, Arolaide, and Ellyndrial spent an hour talking about instant level 90s, the mass removal of class abilities, and mandatory Proving Grounds as the gateway for heroic dungeons.
Elly asks the important question, “Is paid instant levelling a good idea?” whereas Liore glosses right over that and gets down to haggling over the price. Meanwhile, Arolaide wants to know how we’re supposed to define “good players” if we all have meaningless talents and a handful of abilities. (It’s a good question.) Perhaps mandatory Proving Grounds are the answer, although we differ wildly over how accessible those should be.
Also, poop quest predictions! Complaints about paladins! Fond reminiscing of hijinx using Mind Vision!
