Ask Gauss

Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers out there. Being Father's Day it is also Sunday unless someday they change Father's Day to not be on a Sunday, which wouldn't make too much sense anyway, so I will stick with my first point, that being it is Sunday. With it being Sunday that means it Ask Gauss the post of the week where I get to be put on the spot and answer some questions. If you are unfamilar with how to ask these questions there is a fancy link at the top right of the page or you can just email them to me at With that all out of the way let's get to the questions.

So Thrall has been changed into a Neutral Character do you think there is anyone else in the game who could be heading this direction?

Well if you look at the leaders of the Horde and Alliance the only one I think you could look at going the current direction of Thrall is Velen. The problem is Velen is the Draenei even more so than Thrall is the Horde. You saw him or heard him rather do his speech at the end of the Sunwell raid, which was probably one of my favourite in game moments a lot because of what we were able to accomplish, but also because Velen was showcased how he should be. If you have read any of the novels you really know what I am talking about.

On another note there are a couple people I feel could be going the other way, namely Sylvannas. She is heading down a path that I am not entirely sure if it will keep her with the Horde, but only time will tell I guess. What I feel really though is we will be getting Lore Characters added in a way such that they are neutral and not just have our leaders packing up and leaving. Thrall is just a really special case.

What would you add to the game that would probably never happen?

One thing I would love to see added is a Horde and Alliance Combined raid. I am not saying just in the same group because that isn't really interesting to me. I mean I would love to have a boss where there is a Horde and Alliance raid fighting the boss at the same time, both having specific goals and both trying to achieve the end result of the boss dying. Think of it this way say Yogg Saron it was one raid constantly outside the other group constantly inside both are fighting the same boss and at the other ones mercy to get the job done. Completely separate groups trying to save us all. This is always the way I had thought Sargeras would go down. Yes I am hopeful, but I really don't see it happening at all. The logistics and planning in order to make this work would be much too difficult on the players side. Arranging 2 25s or even 2 10s cross faction seems like a complete nightmare even if during the encounter you didn't speak to each other at all. But I do have a dream even if I feel it won't have a chance of happening.

Did they change the release of 4.2 to the 28th?

It appears so. So we will now have an extra week.

That is it for this week hope you all got what you wanted out of it. For next week's Reader Post I want you all to send in what you would like to see in the game, but will probably never happen. Again Happy Father's Day and enjoy what is left of your weekend.

  1. Wow that would truly be an amazing raid. But I agree that would be a nightmare to put together.
