the exclamation point is important

Like the night elves and golden eyes, each race actually has a physical indicator of importance.

Human: Angst.

Dwarf: has to be drastically altered. Regular dwarf? Lame. Fire, diamond, or metal dwarf? Important.

Gnome: have you guys ever heard of an important gnome? That’s because they don’t exist.

Night elves: golden eyes, the shinier the better. Illidan, the new messiah’s, eyes are basically just two damn flashlights in his skull.

Worgen: the more times a worgen does the idle sniff animation, the more important it is. In human form it’s still angst, but British Angst.

Important Pandaren are the ones with a blue exclamation point over their heads, as dailies were a Fun and Important part of their continent.

Orcs: looks identical to thrall, because he is the only important Orc lorewise

Trolls: actual good posture instead of slouching. Vol'jin demonstrated this for about two seconds in SoO, right when his potential as a character peaked and immediately died out.

Undead: important male undead always look as gross as possible, but important female undead always have intact boobs.

Tauren: Tauren are special, as they are two-dimensional unless interacted with by an Orc, such as thrall or garrosh. If you see a Tauren displaying actual character traits, they have a great destiny ahead.

Blood elves: have no outward physical displays of importance, as they will tell you themselves.

Goblins: have they even done anything since cataclysm? If they have, they’ve poured all their focus into making money instead of developing physical indicators of importance.


“Here is the single craziest thing about Mr. Robot that makes its success, its literal existence, nearly impossible to fathom: Take away Malek and the whole show implodes. It doesn’t, not even for five minutes, work. … You can’t put — well, I’ve done this little exercise on down the line like obsessively — anyone else in that role and have it work. It can’t be pictured.
… Malek [is] absolute perfection in the same way that Tatiana Maslany is for Orphan Black. [They both] represent the ultimate exclamation point about the importance of casting.” [x]


As you may have seen, Pokemon (dot) com has leaked lots of new info - the parts I found super important and new I put exclamation point in front of and behind.

Travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokémon with Pokémon GO for iPhone and Android devices! With Pokémon GO, you’ll discover Pokémon in a whole new world—your own! Pokémon GO will use real locations to encourage players to search far and wide in the real world to discover Pokémon.

The Pokémon video game series has used real-world locations such as the Hokkaido and Kanto regions of Japan, New York, and Paris as inspiration for the fantasy settings in which its games take place. Now the real world will be the setting!

!!!!!Get on your feet and step outside to find and catch wild Pokémon. Explore cities and towns around where you live and even around the globe to capture as many Pokémon as you can. As you move around, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know you’re near a Pokémon. Once you’ve encountered a Pokémon, take aim on your smartphone’s touch screen and throw a Poké Ball to catch it. Be careful when you try to catch it, or it might run away! Also look for PokéStops located at interesting places, such as public art installations, historical markers, and monuments, where you can collect more Poké Balls and other items.!!!!!

!!!!!!In Pokémon GO, you will gain levels as a Trainer, and at higher levels you will be able to catch more powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You’ll also have access to more powerful items, such as Great Balls, to give you a better shot at catching Pokémon. Keep exploring and encountering Pokémon to raise your level!!!!!!!

!!!!!!There are other ways to add Pokémon to your roster, too. If you catch the same species of Pokémon enough times, you’ll get the opportunity to evolve one of them. And as you explore, you may find Pokémon Eggs at PokéStops, which will hatch after you’ve walked a certain distance. When they hatch, you may find Pokémon you’ve never seen before!!!!!

!!!!!!Some wild Pokémon will appear only in certain places near where you live or around the world. For example, some Water-type Pokémon may appear only near lakes and oceans. If you’re away from home, be sure to stay alert for Pokémon you wouldn’t normally encounter!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!At a certain point in the game, you’ll be asked to join one of three teams. Once you join a team, you’ll gain the ability to assign Pokémon you’ve caught to empty Gym locations or to a location where a team member has placed one of his or her Pokémon. Like PokéStops, Gyms can be found at real locations in the world. Each player can place only one Pokémon at a particular Gym, so you’re encouraged to work with others on the team to build up a strong defense.!!!!!!!!

If a Gym is already claimed by another team, you can challenge that Gym using your own Pokémon. Using the Pokémon you’ve caught, engage in battle with the defending Pokémon at the Gym to claim control.

A wide variety of challenges are available that highlight many different categories, such as catching Pokémon and exploration. By completing these challenges, you’ll unlock achievement medals that will appear in your player profile. Try your best to unlock as many medals as you can!

A portable device called the Pokémon GO Plus will enable Pokémon GO players to enjoy the game even while they’re not looking at their smartphones. The device connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and notifies the player about events in the game—such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby—using an LED and vibration. In addition, players can catch Pokémon or perform other simple actions by pressing the button on the device. Pokémon GO Plus will be available soon. Check back for more details.

An early field test limited to Japan only is planned for Pokémon GO while the game is still in active development. The features, available languages, design, and overall appearance are not final. Please stay tuned for information about expansion of the field test to other markets.

Pokémon GO will be available for download at no charge on the App Store and Google Play. In-app purchases will also be available.
