Ghostcrawler is WoW Game Design Porn

A few months ago, I wrote my guide to WoW PvE. At the time that I wrote that, Bliz­zard was tight-lipped in their design. With­out their express design goals post­ed any­where, every­thing had to be reverse-engi­neered from our expe­ri­ence in the game. In oth­er words, my guide was a col­lec­tion of guess­es. I hap­pen to think they’re good guess­es, but when you get right down to it, the amount of pub­lic data regard­ing those game design deci­sions I talk about was min­i­mal.

All that’s changed recent­ly. Bliz­zard has a new and offi­cial voice speak­ing to the WoW class com­mu­ni­ty, Ghost­crawler. I say the fol­low­ing with all due grav­i­ty: Ghost­crawler’s posts are game design porn.
