Thanks everyone for your questions! We've passed the 9:30am deadline, so no more questions can be included. Please now go through the pages and vote for the questions you'd most like to see answered.
Welcome to the World of Warcraft Developer Global Q&A. In this thread we'll be collecting questions from you to have answered by our developers. We'll be asking for your question each time a new Ask the Devs Questions thread goes up, having the community vote on them, and posting the answers we receive approximately one week later.
Here's how this works:
- Starting at the time this thread is made you can post your World of Warcraft question for the developers.
- Around 9:30 Tuesday Morning we're going to reply saying no more questions will be taken, and any questions beyond that point will be ignored.
- We'll then ask you to use the thumbs-up button to vote for any questions you'd like to see answered. (Please only vote on questions submitted before the cutoff time.)
- Around 17:00 on Tuesday, we'll lock the thread, meaning no more votes will be possible.
- We'll pick out posts with the most votes, collect them with questions from the other regions, and get answers to be posted the following week.
- This process will continue on, with a new question thread going up (weather permitting) and the answers to the previous questions being posted shortly thereafter.
- Only one question per post.
- If your question is answered your character name will be displayed alongside the question.
- Discussion posts are not allowed! If you don't have a question for our developers, you should not post in this thread.
- Once the "no more questions" post is made, please refrain from making additional posts and only vote for your favorite questions.
- You can vote for questions at any time while the thread is unlocked.
- A highly rated post does not mean it will be answered, but we'll do our best to answer as many questions as possible.
- Down votes don't count.
- Don't post or vote for questions you know we won't answer. We're not going to use these Q&As to announce new features, expansions, or release dates, etc. By the same token, we're not going to answer questions that touch on subjects outside of the game and its design.
- Ask about any game design subject! Class design is surely the most popular, but we'll do our best to get any questions answered no matter the topic.
- Keep your question concise. One to three sentences should be plenty to explain background and ask a question.
- Vote for any and all questions you would like to see answered.
- All votes count. While you can't see vote #'s, we can. Even if a post is highly rated, your vote still means something to that question (potentially) being answered.
As a Prot paladin, my only other choice for using holy power is Shield of the Righteous or Inquisition (or not using HP at all). My threat is already sky-high as it is, so I prefer to just use Word of Glory to reduce the strain on my healer a little.
Are we a pure pve specc and not playable on pvp realms or are we suposed to be able to PvP to some degree at least ?
With the game and/or graphics engine being as old as it is, can we expect an update to this in the future?
In late WOTLK we got improved water.
Is any graphic engine improvement being worked on / thought of for late Cata ?
Balance would be so much easier and speedier if more had dualenvirontment setting.
Balance is not very good and many fear it will not really skyrocket in quality as long as there is no PvE/PvP value for some spells and talents.
