[16:16] hi kat
[16:16] Hi Kat smile
[16:16] is it really?
[16:16] Yap yap smile

[16:20] will leveling be a direct affect from combat or will there be other ways to level up?
[16:20] so in just hitting a tree with a sword?
[16:20] questing
[16:20] x[nin]Tons of quests in WoW smile

[16:20] Kat, Marry me! we can have a WoW marriage, your undead priest and my undead rogue raspberry its foolproof, we will be good together
[16:20] GhouL .. sorry but my hubby is an Undead Rogue .. already married wink

[16:21] Okay .. I have a question …  As you all know .. each race has a mount (some unannounced yet) .. and that Warlocks also get a special “Nightmare” … does anyone know what other class gets a special mount and what it’s called? smile  (Lots of wrong answers given here).  Get your pens ready to write this down … because it’s new information smile  The Paladin will have a high level quest to get his Charger .. which will be his/her mount smile  Yes, a special War Horse .. Paladin only smile  I haven’t seen one, so that’s the best description I can give at this point in time smile

[16:25] but it seems unfair to horde player cause they dont have a special-class-mount
[16:25] for shaman
[16:26] Eggo, good point … while I don’t know if this will be offset with a Horde Class specific mount, I do know that they are intending to balance out the factions, I’ll be sure to bring it to someone’s attention just in case it’s been missed smile

[16:26] Will the Warlock/Paladin special class mount be obtained the same way as racial mounts???
[16:27] Kredit, Warlock/Paladin mounts will be quested for … normal mounts will be bought and skilled for

[16:27] Kat, Can I ask why we can’t jump off a Air Taxi? and what will happen if you LD while on one?
[16:28] Zion, jumping off would kill you .. as for LD, I don’t honestly have an answer although I suspect when you log back in you’ll still be in the air flying smile

[16:29] Hmm..Well compared to DAoC I remember you would fall of the horse in the place you LD…So i was just thinking
[16:30] Zion, I doubt they will do that in WoW as some of the places you will fly over will be way over your level .. or even over the ocean ect.

[16:29] Kat, sup:) After you get level 60, will there be a whole bunch of super-duper hard equipment to gain that can still make your character much stronger? Lots of 60 requirment armor/swords that take super hard quests?
[16:31] MJ, that’s the plan and much more although we are still working on high level content. The game has been created from the ground up .. meaning that they started working on lvl 1 stuff and progressed in that way … so lvl 60 content is still being developed.

[16:31] Katricia, do you know about the boat rides/flight times, how long they will actually take since its real-time?
[16:32] Zeeg, the amount of time depends on the trip. I’ve taken flights that have lasted seconds and then some that have lasted a minute or two .. it all depends on your origin and destination smile


Can the warlock summon mount to his friend?
[16:33] Pan, no … the mount will be soul linked with his master and wouldn’t lower itself to allow another on it’s back.  I was picking flowers all around Ironforge earlier today with her lil’ Gnome Warlock.  As an FYI: We’re just now in the process of working with our Battlefield PvP .. and are experimenting with Seige types of weapons smile

[16:43] the quests in the PVP areas will have better rewards I remember reading.. that still true?
[16:43] : Xora, much about the PvP system is uncertain as it’s still in development .. smile

[16:44] Kat, recently posted on a fansite…WoW will use the RPS(rock/paper/scissor) model for PvP, can you confirm?
[16:45] : Kredit it’s very hard for me to talk too much about PvP due to the fact that anything I would say would have a high likelyhood of changing .. as I said earlier, it’s still in development

[16:46] Kat, as of now, how many hours of solid leveling does it take to get to level 20?
[16:46] : I’m not sure MJ .. I don’t get very much time to play smile

[16:50] @kat is gold useful ? or will the moneysystem collaps like as in many mmorpgs
[16:51] looks into the future .. yes, money will be useful

[16:51] from what blizz has said, money will be very important and useful
[16:52] any ‘secret/unlocked’ tradeskills that wont be mentioned at release?
[16:52] : There’s a new skinning tradeskill used for .. skinning animals for their hides (imagine that!)

[16:53] will there be guns for any race?
[16:53] I believe guns for any race .. but only for specific classes

[16:54] 04Kat can you comment on Mage pets?
[16:54] : No

[16:55] Only kat may use colored text or emotes. raspberry
[16:55] dances around at her power to be the only one with pretty text colors

[17:03] as far as i know, i asked before about aura weapons, and they are apparently in… you can have a flaming sword, and it does extra damage, some unique weapons automatically get this as a trait, but some can be e
[17:03] Exactly Ghoul

[17:06] 12does anyone know what the troll moun
t will be?

The gnomes are already so cute .. seeing them on sheep would be great smile  I’ve got to run folks .. sorry I couldn’t stay longer .. thanks Raal and all the good folks at blizzard guilds for inviting me .. have a great weekend y’all smile
