I love maldraxxus’ theme of the zone… Probably won’t join on my druid but my mage instead, looks cool though

I, too, am looking forward to potentially seeing a certain Green Jesus’ mother.

Looks cool. The mail leather and plate sets look AWESOME. I really really like the look of the leather set

I’m going Maldraxxus for sure. The aesthetic fits well with warlock.

so how are you going to balance a 4 second cast shield and potion with a 35 yard teleport?

or are you just gonna nerf the Venthyr teleport a month into the game after everyone picks that covenant specifically for the teleport?

Make the shield instant cast. Add a 10 min cool down to the teleport which is useless in PvP since it can be gripped back. Potion needs to be completely redone or provide a seriously huge buff.

Gladiators NEED to be an allied race somehow, like cooler ogres

I’m getting MAD Warhammer - Chaos Chosen vibes from these guys.

Dislike the leather set personally but I love the theme of the necrolords.

Maldraxxus Mage does have a nice alliteration ring to it. Also, think about all of the magic one can learn from the crafty liches. . .

I have my headcanon that my mage (which has the literal opposite of what I canonically roleplay him as) is a necromancer so the theme fits perfectly!
