No More NDA Makes This Hunter Sad
My reason for being sad is because all of the video that will be circulated via the various websites such as YouTube. Said videos will basically turn into strategies for beating the various dungeon bosses. This will make facing them somewhat trivial, due to knowing what to expect. The only gate check will be the lack of gearing to make the boss a push over. Think about running the current Wrath of the Lich King heoric level dungeons in tier 9, 10 and higher armour right now. You’re way over geared and everything is trivial.
Using the LFD (Looking for Dungeon) option will undoubtedly pair you with some player(s) that have watched every single video, and types at the top of their finger lungs when an error is made by someone who may not have watched the videos. The elitist attitude will then just lead to full on frustration from both parties.
I don’t mind seeing Blue Post being discussed, or the videos that show the new races, and/or their mounts. Those things can be done without mis-flavoring the newness of the expansion to come.
Maybe Blizzard will not show off all of the boss mechanics. Maybe they will leave a surprise or two in place for the actual launch of Cataclysm? Doing so would be awesome. One can only hope.
I’m not a party pooper, but I am one that wants the shine of Cataclysm to be like that of a new car instead of the gleam of a two year old model. There is nothing wrong with a used car, but deep down inside we all want the new hotness in its untarnished glory.
