WoW Twitter Q&A Transcript
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has posted the results of a recent Twitter Q&A with developers about recently released content for World of Warcraft. The question and answer session included discussion of the Icecrown Citadel and Fall of the Lich King as well as other aspects of the game.

Q. How do you feel about the limited attempts mechanic that has been use in Trial of the Crusader and Icecrown Citadel?
A. We're not crazy about how they worked out. They were designed in essence to save players from themselves. In the past, some people would make 400+ attempts on new bosses. That's not healthy and at some point you're not measuring skill but tenacity. Yet, that's not what happened. Guilds just made alts to get around the limitations, and things like disconnects and accidents make losing an attempt really frustrating. We like gating because if nothing else it lets the community focus on more than just the final boss in the zone. If we do limited attempts again it would probably be limited to optional bosses like Algalon.

Q. Will existing races get a more "epic" start to the game, similar to the goblin/worgen starting experience?
A. We have big plans in store for both the trolls and the gnomes in regards to their starting experience but you probably already know that. ;)

We are also planning to spice up the starting zones for all of the other races as well. You can expect gameplay changes to the actual zones, as well as improved quest flows and all new items to match.

Q. Will there be any type of water mount, like, submarines?
A. We actually have two brand new subs that we made for Cataclysm. These submarines will be used as transports. We have one for gnomes and one for goblins. The subs are huge too! Both are about the size of the Gunships from Icecrown. ;)
