Cataclysm: Draenei Starting Zone — 10 Comments

  1. They aren’t updating any of the tBC content, so both Draenei and Blood Elf areas are exactly the same.

    You’ll see the training dummies (as you mentioned) as well as mail boxes in the starting zones, but other than a few updated graphics here and there that’s as far as it goes.

    • I know, but it’s still a shame. While I know they’re not updating TBC content it still feels odd since they’re in Azeroth – not Outland and it feels like there would have been some signs of the Cataclysm happening. But I know they said they’re not touching TBC content, I just would have liked them to consider the starting zones since they’re still located in a “Cataclysm” area.

  2. This is probably the price of being a zone that came later and was much better designed than the originals, but it still sucks. Even Draenei deserve love Blizzard!

    • I agree that it definitely could use some sprucing up, but to be honest.. for now I’d settle for even just a little crack in the island to show that the Cataclysm did happen.

  3. I’ve gotta say, I’m rather disappointed with the Draenei. In WotLK it seemed like everywhere you turned there were new Blood Elves doing this or that or involved in the story via Sunreavers or milling about… The Draenei, there was one mention at the beginning of Borean Tundra that was an Alliance saying ‘we dont trust you here’, and that was it aside from the Tournament.

    Cataclysm looks to be more of the same. You’d think at least they could have phased the zone so that, once you blew up the Vector Coil, some of the crude shelter models got swapped with standing buildings. From what I keep hearing, there’s no new draenei or draenei related happenings in Cata at all, aside from a building model change at that outpost in Swamp of Sorrows. >.<

    • Yeah, from what I’ve seen in Beta so far there’s really no draenei love going on whatsoever. Which is a shame. I don’t expect them to overhaul every zone, etc. But at least a little something to show that the Cataclysm did happen would have been nice – even if it was just some fallen trees and a crack in the ground.. just something – anything – really.

  4. they should have changed at least the intro to feel at least something is changed and they should have removed the quest were u saved the eradiated draenei and at elves 2 i think they should change the intro i mean they can patch it right hope something comes to u blizz and change

    • Yes, it’s a shame that there’s no mentioning or sign of the shattering at all. I can understand them not touching outland, but the belf zone and draenei zone are in azeroth that supposedly were hit by the shattering.
