 '[...]we're looking at a 2-3 month period of scripting and testing. '

1)Means you're goin to open the Beta after these 2-3 months?

2) Also, how much (a rough estimation would be good too) do you plan to keep the Beta open before releasing?

 

Thank you for your work :)

Thanks for the update!

I wanted to ask, how much of the seemingly unimportant/obscure instance events are taken into account? I mean stuff like Dark Iron dwarves in Grim Guzzler going after the mugs of ale you throw on the ground, drinking them and getting stunned. Will we see that?

Also, if a Crestfall DB/Armory happens, are there any plans to provide an Edge of Madness calendar? I'm pretty sure the boss rotations are hard-coded into the game, but players normally have to check archived sources then do their own calculations to find out when will a certain boss become available.

First question, scripting will be ongoing during the beta.  We aren't waiting on that.

Second question:  Until the bugs are fixed and the scripting is complete.

The finish line is at least within sights it seems! Thanks for the update and get well. 
Love that TBC is kept in mind throughout the process as well! 

Speaking of raids, is it possible to put off the development of the later raids to facilitate a quicker release? Since these wouldn't be released until months after launch anyways, is it in your strong preference to have them be ready from the get-go?

So i was busy once with the Blackfathom Deep Event with the second last boss with the candles, you dont just mean setting up HP Dmg values right? I mean there is mob linking too.

What about NPC Looping btw? (1 Spawnpoint where a diferent NPC can spawn each new Dungeon Reset.

 

Anyway i will be testing all your 5man dungeons in open beta and im just gonna report everything i find, i hope you go into every possible detail not just HP and DMG values, i mean factors for challening content is also Linking Mobs, or even Patrols for accident miss pulls.

 

Anyway everything can be backed up with a vanilla video. nothing to worry i just dont wanna see devs saying "Nope we wont fix that" or a bug that doesnt gets fixed for 1 year.

Westfall graveyard

Wait, what happens on Westfall graveyard? Apart from it being the default Alliance graveyard so you sometimes die in Northrend and get sent there?

Not really a secret anymore. Daribon in freetime is re-sniffing entire Outlands, including all events(quests and otherwise), and is recording it all so we have all data for it in case it gets heavily changed later on. It's for TBC though obviously.

"Asura Edit: Please note - We already do have some scripts. The problem is they're from our previous engine. They're not hard to convert over, so some quests will be done right off the bat. As for others, we're actually going to be expanding our SQL and Lua systems by a large amount to make things even easier for those who wish to help, and Rodeg is building tools to help with gossip + scripting, so that it will be easier for anyone to help."  

Sounds Like you would have enough Tools to built whole new Quest Areas O.o . I know you cant make terrain changes (can u ?) but there would be ennough empty spaces that are gated off, that could be well, a special "crestfall Zone / Raid" like Hyjal or Kharazan  Dungeon.... on the other hand, wacky Idea xD dont do it ! ... Still would be funny to find all Staff Members as Ghuls in Kharazan Graveyard

 

    "Something's messed up with my jaw and I'm in a tremendous amount of pain."  -  Sounds Tooth-related ... get well soon ! Pain there is my worst Nemesis too.

Good evening,

This is going to be a quick update.  I know I say that every time and then write a huge thing but I mean it this time.  Something's messed up with my jaw and I'm in a tremendous amount of pain.

Wisdom tooth coming in? Or maybe an absess. If you're still waiting on treatment, slather clove oil (disgusting stuff) around the top teeth, gargle salt water, eat turmeric in large quantities and rub castor oil on the outside where it hurts. If none of that works, I always reach for the clear alcohols. Tooth pain is abysmal, but if they give you antibiotics for it, remember to take some probiotics too.

Maybe one of the hidden areas (eg. the tomb under Kara) could be a gathering of easter eggs (eg. here lies C.F.Beta, born 2030, died 2017 by using an ultrasafe time portal).

Or even place one in each hidden area, gives us more reason to explore ;)

Just a question - will there be any beta testing where you instantly hit 60? I like leveling - but redoing it again and again is quite tedious for me but I would like to test out the 60 stuff :D (and my to test different classes)

It would make sense to allow players to set their own levels depending on what content they want to test. They could just make everyone level 60 though, trying to think if there's any level appropriate quests/mechanics to test.
