Dave Kosak – Mists of Pandaria Interview: Spotlight on King Varian Wrynn
Dave Kosak was interviewed by VideoGamer to discuss details of World of Warcraft patch 4.3. According to the lead quest designer, King Varian Wrynn will be spotlighted in the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion, the same way Thrall has been the main figure in Cataclysm with patch 4.2 and 4.3.
There won’t be more content patches in Cataclysm. He does confirm a world event prior to the release of Mists of Pandaria. Check out the full interview.
Q: Are there any specific Alliance characters you’d like to take a look at?
DK: Certainly I think Varian Wrynn for the Alliance really needs to be the kind of character that players really look up to and see as a major world figure. And I think if you ask players right now, they don’t quite see him that way yet. So we have a lot of work to do on that character I think. We just haven’t had the opportunity in-game to explore that character the way that we’ve explored Thrall. You know, it’s like Chris Metzen said, Thrall was barely in the game until an event in Burning Crusade where he had a little bit going on. So characters kind of come and go as we shine the spotlight around in different directions I think we definitely want to shine the spotlight on the Alliance in the upcoming expansion.
