the interview is here on dealspwn
Nice, can't wait for Meet the Mechari
That's weird the Massively article (http://massively.joystiq.com/2013/02/25/massively-exclusive-a-closer-look-at-wildstars-draken/) mentions Dracken Espers at the end. I'm guessing it was just a mistake because Dracken can't be Espers.
I noticed the same thing. Made me go and double-check. Oh well.
Thanks for the links!
I really enjoyed the interviews and the look into the Draken. When i first saw the race released i was not huge on them. They made them out ,to me, to be nothing but savages, who were almost slaves. Yet in these talks about them i have found out they are not slaves so much as they respect the Emperors line so much that they would follow it into the pits of hell, and kill everything that was asked of them to show just how worthy they are. This has made me rethink them as a whole, and see they are not savages, they just wish to test themselves. They remind me of the Aiel from the Wheel of Times books. They follow, they are not lead.
My biggest problem with the draken is the teeth. As shown by Minjin's avatar, they look like they're all molars! I wanna see some fangs!
Maybe they are as deadly as the hippo......with his big flat teeth, meant for crushing, not cutting?
GO TEAM HIPPO!
EDIT: After watching the Video again "Meet the Dominion" you can see that all the teeth are shaprens to points. So it is like a mouth full of daggers. Not flat. The still pick just does not do it justice cause of the angle.
Aye, I like the art that Rylia is using in her avatar - nice fangly Draken lady. That's the kind of fangs we need!
I'm guessing it will just be the interviewer asking one question and the Mechari saying:
"You are not authorized to know that. In fact, I believe in questioning you have already become a liability." *gun shot*
When you look at them up close, theyre not really flat; they're still pointy, just a particular shape. They look a bit like little shark teeth.
What I want to know is, during their Winter Holiday, are they asked to pull sleds around for Dominion nobility? My instinct says no... but that concept art of Draken horns makes me think maybe yes...
I just expect now to see a Draken with those bottom right horns and a red clown nose, Lord Protius in a Crimson suit, and a bunch of Aurin around a table as an announcer says:
"Well, in Gallows they say - that Malvolio's small heart grew three sizes that day."
If the Emperor commands we shall pull this slay, we shall hunt and slay humility that day, and it will bring us one step closer to the prophecies being fulfilled.
(I am going to enjoy Draken soooooooooo much.)
Rhukdolva the Red-Nosed Draken! had a very shiny ....knife!
You know Daskah, and Kuhlo, Praxi and Vorblah
Klabit and Kribit and Drikr and Blorkah
But do you recall
The most fearsome Draken of all?
Rhukdolva the Red-Blade Draken
had a very shiny knife.
And if you ever saw her,
you would just have lost your life.
All of the other Draken
Never asked her out to fights.
They never let Rhukdolva
join in any fun blood rites.
Then one PROTOSTAR GALA WINTERFEST EXTRAVAGANZA (by Protostar)
The Emperor came to say:
"Rhukdolva with your knife so bright,
won't you hunt for me tonight?"
Then all the Draken praised her
as she took the Mikros throne,
Rhukdolva the red-nosed Draken,
honor us with blood and bone!
Honor us with blooooooood aaaaand boooooooooone!
Thank you. Just... thank you.
I didn't imagine in a million years that someone would actually do that with a line of mine... :-O you win the internets for today in my book!
It was SUCH a good line, I was inspired. I had to see it through to it's conclusion.
