Our last two "Ask CDev" projects generated thousands of unique questions across all the different regions, but ultimately the Creative Development team was able to sift through the sea of inquiries to focus on the questions with the juiciest answers. You can see the results of the last two "Ask CDev" endeavors here:
Ask CDev #1:
Ask CDev #2:
The rules of engagement this year are as follows:
* No restriction on the subject of your post, but keep in mind that questions that may be answered by the release of Mists of Pandaria will likely be overlooked; we don't want to spoil surprises!
* Please only ask one question in each post. If your post has more than one question (or if your question contains multiple parts), it will be overlooked. Also, it is recommended that you check the thread to see if your question has already been asked; duplicate questions will not have a greater chance of being answered.
* Questions will only be accepted for the first seven days, and the thread will be locked at 11:59 p.m. PDT on February 22.
* While the thread is open for questions, forum members are encouraged to go through the thread and "Like" or "Dislike" posts; voting on a post will increase or decrease (respectively) the probability of that question being answered.
Just remember as well that this is about lore questions, asked by the creative developers. Questions about class mechanics or game design will not be answered unless they directly pertain to the lore surrounding them. No sneaking in such questions under the guise of lore questions.
Okay, first off, seeing as there were black dragons in outland untouched by the Fangs of the Father Questline, how many black dragons are there left?
One of the few lore update's the Blood elves have received is that Lady Liadrin is quite the devout follower of the light now due to the events at the Sunwell (or so it seems). Does this mean all / most Blood Knights have followed her lead, will we really get yet a another horrid redemption story shoved down our throats?
I ask this because on most roleplaying servers the ''light/good'' Blood Knight's are in the minority and most Knight's have a dislike towards Liadrin's sudden change in style.Edit: Naturally there is also a tiny fear that Blood Knight's turn into Draenei paladins v2 and the whole Blood elven race turns into just goody goodys as I rolled this race for something else at least ( I realise charecters/races 'progress but still <.<).
Why did you decide to send Worgen characters to Darkshore and make the continuation of the Gilneas storyline unavailable to Alliance characters at all?
How does the creative team approach the different races in terms of lore differences, and what efforts are made to actually make them different beyond their architectural style?
Also, please keep in mind the limit of one question per post - it helps us track questions much more easily when we begin the compilation process.
