I could dig this...

So as many of you know, the new suspected races are the worgen and the goblins. This has been brought about because the data miners have found two new sets of very detailed Halloween masks. Now at first I was like, well goblins make sense and a werewolf mask would make sense too. But a female worgen mask? We've never seen a female worgen ingame, and she has make-up on. Now let's get into some of the lore here, aka would it make sense.


This is extremely believable for a new race for the horde. They already favor the horde, and they're the primary cross continent travel for the horde. One of the trade princess could have got pissed at the alliance and sides solely with the horde.


Well there's two options here for what we could see. The people of Gilneas could have been changed into worgen. They use to be part of the alliance and from what I understand people can be turned into worgen. The second option is the worgen that were under the influence of Archmage Arugal are free to do whatever they want. From what I've read the worgen homeworld is in a all out war between the worgen and the Lords of the Emerald Flame. As far as I know the only emerald fire is from fel magic, so I'm thinking the Burning Legion. Also they have a previous relationship with humans and night elves so them siding with the alliance is a lot more likely than the horde.

Nobody Like You EP3

First of all let me just say that I'm sorry about the lack of posts last week but as you can see I was up to something. I really wanted to get episode 3 of Nobody Like You done so I crammed all my free time to get it done. Although looking back at the project, I had to cut 2mins of the episode cause the time was running too long so that could have probably saved me some time.

Episode 3 picks up right after Episode 2 and that's all I can say without it being a huge spoiler. I can say that the 4th wall will been broken in this episode... just like every other one. Oh and to those that I parodied, it was meant as a joke not an attack. Also I'm sorry for how long it took to make this episode. The original plan was for it to be released the week after episode 2 but Turpster approached me to do a machinima for him. And let's face it, Turpster is one dreamy Brit.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video and there will, with out a question, be an episode 4. But with my job schedule I wouldn't expect it to be for a couple of months. Oh and please feel free to drop me a line at ninthbatter@hotmail.com or http://twitter.com/NinthBatter and of course my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/NinthBatter.

edit: problem with the video, didn't upload the last 1/4 of the video, working on it.

edit 11:16 pm 7-13: reduced the video quality and re-uploaded it to youtube. should work fine now.

I'm Not Bias...

So with me being back in Montana for the week and my bum foot (damn cactus), I've had some time to work on Nobody Like You and I got some time on the PTR today. I'll warn you now that whatever you read after this will be a spoiler on the new children's week orphans.


First off, when you talk to the Orphan Matron she will give you the choice of Oracle / Frenzyheart(or gremlins and oohmpa-pa's). After you have chosen there is no going back, so make sure you pick the one you want right off the bat. I've done both, but I favor the Oracles so they're the one I'm gonna talk about.

You're little orphan Oracle is named Roo. And like all Oracles, he has the best flavor text ever! For example:

"Why do the puppy-people hatchlings say we should pity Lafoo? Lafoo talk a lot, but he still our friend."

Like all the orphans you take this little bundle of teeth and smiles to various locations so he can see things and meet important people. But here's the best part, you know at the end of all these quests the orphan is always like "I wish I could keep traveling with you." Well this little guy comes through. He'll write you a letter saying he wants you to take him on journeys whenever you want, and attached to the letter is the curious oracle hatchling. So you really can take him with you!
