Like it allready.
Looks like there will be a lot of interesting places for role-play in the next patch, though the dinosaurs strike me as a bit excessively silly. On a side note, I do hope that we'll finally see the remnants of the 'evil' troll tribes dealt with once and for all. The Darkspear need some more love and focus put upon their own established culture for a change.

I quite like them actually. I've always been a fan of the Aztec/Inca/Myan general style that is used with the Warhammer Lizardmen and here we seem to be seeing a replication of that but in an interesting and unique style. Trolls have always had strong ties to dinosaurs, animals and masks so this really seems like a logical expansion on that.

Also, I'm a sucker for Majora's Mask so I love Masked Bosses. xD
Oh, the Darkspear have a lovely environment and culture shown in-game, right in their starting area... once the story implications of Patch 5.1 are settled. The Echo Isles are gorgeous, ripe for roleplay of a wide variety of trollish themes, religious, social, military, and beyond. Mind you...

...dinosaurs.

Desperately leveling Sparklighter alongside some associated DST and CotR troll characters, in anticipation of being involved in this patch and the resultant RP-friendly goodness. I don't know yet what the opinon of The Ghost of Tsathoggua will be of all this "dinomancy," but it would be far too dangerous in the spiritual plane, there, for him. Likely he'll make some references to Gonk, about the whole thing, and sound somewhat mad.
I have to say: From what i've seen now it looks like something i might partake in, not like landfall since...i haven't really seen any horde activity in that place
Triceratops mount is long overdue.

This is really minor, but I kinda hope they give Lei Shen a different weapon. A reskin version of Qiang's from Spirit Kings in MSV doesn't really do justice to The Thunder King.

I was hoping he'd have a unique model seeing how he is the Thunder King.
It's all still in development so that might / will probably change. I certainly expect it to.

He already has another (much cooler) model in the screenshots.

That's either TK or Ra-Den.

Thats Lei Shen <The Thunder King> model.

I think blizz is saving Ra-Den as a surprise encounter.
For all we know..he could be a pink bunny ^^

It's not a bad model, glad to see it's less generic than the one in the teaser. Hat's a bit silly, but "welcome to warcraft" and all that. Hopefully he gets a decent weapon to go with it.

Unless those enormous bracers *are* his (fist) weapons and he's gonna box us in the face. I'm fine with that as well.
Mind you...

...dinosaurs.


... Yeaaaaah.

All very cool, but so many bloody dinosaurs. Feels like the Land Before Time in that video, or something.

Just there's more death, and it doesn't make me cry.

Still. To this day.
Suddenly Dinoriders.
Rather boring trailer though. I mean sure, cool with Dinos running about. But that trailer got like zero effort in it. What happened to the Ulduar passion?

Edit: Read it wrong. Teaser, not trailer. Ulduar had a similar teaser I think. Discard my comment.

This is only a teaser afterall. I do hope we get an awesome video on the standards of Ulduar, Rage of the Firelands and the Rise of the Zandalari Trailers :3
I thought it was just a 'trailer' put together by MMOChampion.
Ah ah ah, you didn't say the magic word....
