New York Community Cantina infomation

BioWare had a Community Cantina gathering in New York last night, were new game information was released. As always attendance was gifted with a flash drive containing images of upcoming stuff. Items of interest includes a new zaldrate mount and new customization kits for Blizz. The nights discussions also had some items of interest: They want to add better tools to help guildmasters master guilds.

New abilities would have to be designed, a new 50-level character path would have to be written and produced…
