-Illidan is the main boss
-Diamond working as a new profession
-New faceted weapons (yes, JUST like in Diablo 2 where you can add jewels to a weapon to make it stronger and better)
-Weather effects will finally be included seasonally (sometimes you might get a rainstorm, other times a snow storm - random)
-Caverns of Time will be a place where you really can do battle from the past (all the lore)
-Battlegrounds are actually linked and in the next month you will notice little to no wait times in the queue as they test this feature.
- Alliance new race they are currently testing is Panderans. (this screenshot used to show a panda on the alliance side. http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/bloodelf.jpg) This race MIGHT get scraped as they decided another possibility but will most likely be the included new race.
-Hero classes WILL be in the expansion although when I got into the development side of business they basically had no clue what they were going to do with Hero classes.
I will say this in what I saw in the expansion when I was let into the secret development side (to move furniture out and make room for new designers) - They had one of those white boards where you draw ideas and stuff on ... Guess what - They have big plans for you to be able to do fighting while you are on your mount. I saw a couple drawings of MOB with mounts that you will be fighting ... the notes "70-75+" pop out as well as these will be in the Outlands, which is the new area in the expansion.
Basically the way expansion is set up is you go through a portal ("The Dark Portal") to enter that section of the game. You buy expansion, you get to go through that portal...
Wanna know the huge leak that no one yet knows (except you Gator cause I told you a while ago)? It is about Diablo 3. Last week they had a thing called "Show N Tell" which they have every 6 months to all the full time employees - Anyways Diablo 3 takes place in heaven. Hell is trying to take it over and it is AWESOME looking ... I magine the brightness of heaven being taken over by the darkness of hell ... Imagine WoW but in a Diablo world in amount of size and playability ... Also, guild housing is available in this game for those of you who know about it. They should have a gameplay demo to show at BlizzCon.
That is not the huge leak though ... Wanna know the HUGE thing they are introducing at BlizzCon?? Diablo 3 - Hell is invading Heaven and that is the concept of the game ... It looks awesome - Darkness invading light and all ... They showed it to us at this thing Blizzard has twice a year called "Show n Tell" for all the regular employess.... All I have to say is Diablo 3 will be on epic preportion like WoW will be except they are going to have guild housing FINALLY! - There was a rumor that WoW was coming to 360 which is completely false. Blizzard tried to squash the rumor saying it was just going to preview new MS Vista software (http://1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3145078) but Diablo is what they are really going to show coming to 360 ... Ghost is too late in development and a big fuck up in Blizzards eyes and stuck on the PS2 - XBOX
Also, Starcraft 2 is already in development for PC since Ghost is already a failure.
If you guys did not know, there used to be a Blizzard and a "Blizzard North" ... Blizzard North used to develope the Diablo series... But if you have been hiding under a rock the last couple of years, Diable sucks and has not been updated ... Well, guess what, Blizzard North has been completely relocated down here with Blizzard to focus on the development of D3, Dconsole. and SC2 ... so Blizzard has a lot coming down the pipeline.
I was fired today by my boss Justin Guthrie and Max Whitekar ... who I have done coke with MULTIPLE times with a bunch of girls that we work with - So I take it as a backstab by them Very Happy
