AFR #228 – Seeing green

Actually, I think warlocks getting green fire is fantastic.  My warlock has a few levels to go before she can start working on it, but it’s something to look forward to.

So, let’s take stock here.  We now have: cosmetic gear customization, playable pandaren, cross-realm zones, and green warlock fire.  Can the dance studio be far behind?

(Answer: Yes, yes it can.)


  1. I… do not care much for the green fire. If they let you choose which spells it would affect, yes. However, all of them being green just makes certain of them look odd (and ruins the special factor for those it is cool on.)
    As far as ‘Dance Studio’… we still have a GC project coming this year, so maybe? *Yeah, doubt it.*

    • I haven’t seen it yet, so I’ll reserve judgment, but I love the idea. I’m definitely in favor of giving players more choices and more options when it comes to cosmetic customization.

      • Agreed~!

  2. I read somewhere that they eventually decided to abandon the notion of Dance Studio, because they realized it would be a waste of time and resources to develop something that would be used maybe once or twice and never touched again. After all, how often to people really type “/dance”? When was the last time you did?

    • Well, some of us do like to dance. My dwarf hunter likes to break out the Riverdance moves while waiting for mobs to respawn and my human priest gets down with his bad self while waiting for pulls. Still, it’s fair to say that there’s probably not a whole lot of compelling gameplay for most of the player base in something like the dance studio.

  3. I have /dance macro’d to my CDs, so while I might not actually type it that often (only once or twice a raid night) I use it maybe 5 times per boss fight. Not that I actually dance, because I’m usually casting again right away, so I can’t say that’s an argument for the Dance Studio.

    I’m scared of the Dance Studio, actually. Think what some of the trade chat trolls would be able to come up with.
