Ask Gauss

Well if you haven't already figured it out, Sunday is upon us. The weekend is coming to an end and there are just a few things left to do before it is allowed to end. In my case it is answering some questions for all of you, for all of you it would be reading the answers to the questions I am answering. So why don't we get right to do.

Besides Azshara what other plot points would you like Blizzard to take care of?

Turalyon and Alleria. Turalyon was one of my favorite Warcraft character back in the day, so I'd be happy about his return on that alone. But they also bring with them a certain legacy that's been missing. Does the Alliance have any major Paladin characters anymore? Turalyon would be the perfect way to bring back the symbol of Uther and Arthas and Bolvar the Alliance once had as one of their iconic pillars. Maybe he could even reform the Order of the Silver Hand as an Alliance organization separate from the Argent Crusade. Turalyon and Alleria would also be a good way to give the Alliance characters who are uneasy with the Horde due to their last known interaction with them, but decent enough people to remain within character for the faction about it.

Does it bother you that Shadow of Mordor plays like an Assasin's Creed game?

I wouldn't say it plays like an Assassin's Creed game. I know there are similar elements and I use tactics I often put to use in Assassin's Creed. I would say the game itself is much more complicated then an AC game. The story is also quite different then any game and really is a Middle-Earth type game in that regard. Every game is going to have comparissions, but being compared to a franchise that I am never disappointed in I don't think should be an issue for the Shadow of Mordor team. As I have said before I am beyond happy with how the game plays and I have had tons of fun playing it, and I know I will continue to do so.

If Legacy of the Void is revealed at Blizzcon how long do you think till it comes out?


There they are as always thanks to everyone who sent something in. Always happy to answer questions or talk about whatever if it is on here or not. Enjoy what remains of your weekend.

  1. I don't see the issue with Shadow being close to Assassin's Creed. They are great game devs used a playstyle people liked to get players to play but it really ends there in similarities
