    Epic trailer, love the music to it! Hope this musical piece is embedded in the expansion.
    Really like the new terrains that can be spotted throughout the trailer, all the new things look amazing! And this new dwelling sounds interesting.. a city name comes to mind, R’lyeh >: )
    Bye, bye social life on the 14th of April 🙂

    Everything looks amazing 😀

    I cannot wait! And to be honest, I am kind of glad it isnt coming at the end of March, afterall… I cannot play it until May, and the less time I have to spend with it haunting me from my games library… the easier April will be for me.

    There’s a bunch there that aren’t clickable.

    The queen rising out of the chariot (is that the frost nova animation?) looks epic.

    Yes! Everything looks amazing!

    Love how they decided to implement the idea of one of the users, Triumph are one of the only companies who actually read ALL the forum. (I mean the Unifier win condition)

    Wasn’t announced per se, just kind of stealthily when they said Racial Governance was no longer a free feature because it had been tied into something else.

    It looks excellent, but the wait until the 14th of April is going to slay me 🙁

    Also, YAY, Polar Bear Mount! And Snow Tiger Tigrans!

    And the “Zap” outfit would appear to be a Tigran Necromancer one, huh. Given its similarities to the Sorcerer one I expected that.

    Yes! Everything looks amazing!

    Don’t forget renaming Race Command to Racial Governance – that came from a forum user (Me >.>)

    Is that Melenis in trailer? Sadly, plz, bring back old evil Melenis from earlier screens. :(

    Everything looks so awesome about the expansion! But do have to second this. Maybe there are two phases to her?

    The beta for 1.5 is nearing completion, we’re sorting out some last show stoppers before we can go live in the coming days.

    Does this mean more details in the next few days like tomorrow or the coming days towards the expansion. I just dont want to get my hopes for some extra info tomorrow after having my mind blown today. Triumph also last show stoppers, just gimme all the show stoppers you want

    Hmm, no, the Zap outfit is a Tigran Sorc one, so not sure why said Sorc is casting Age of Death.

    Lucky with a Wizard Tower?

    Don’t see the connection, to be honest.
    I mean, a new victory condition is not such a big thing that it couldn’t be included into the free patch. I think it is something bigger than that. Or I will be a bit disappointed.

    Nope, trust me, that is the thing.

    They said with the Seals that new victory conditions would be an expansion thing. Ergo, the Unifier thing is why RG is now an expansion feature.

    Because new Victory Conditions (or, honestly, Racial Governance) are not improvements to existing features that were promised in the base release, but new ones.

    Amazing – a true Expansion, like the good old days!

    And in the Good – Neutral – Evil theme of the expansion, so we will see if 14.04. is Apocalypse or Golden Age for the Editor 😛

    An updated in the middle of a week? And what an update it is 😀

    Everything looks great! I’m especially surprised about how good those icy lands look (dat Ice Temple battleground!) and how Frostlings peaked my interest. Before I was all about Tigrans, but Frostlings also look attractive. Love the Fire and Ice contrast. I wonder if it’s coincidental, but there are a lot of GRR Martins Song of Fire and Ice motives here 😛

    The only little rotten fruit in this Cornucopia of great stuff is the Sphinx design. I really like her concept art, yet the actual unit looks like a generic Tiger/Cheetah hybrid with wings. Imo she lost some of her charm. But I’ll have to wait for the game to see her in action 🙂

    I’m also interested in this new “Reef” dwelling. What kind of monstrosities it houses :> Water Dragons? Sea Serpents? Sharknados?

    PS: Still hoping for that Werewolves 😀

    You can only see the headdress and hats are not class specific. The collar is probably part of the hat too.
