But in many FAQs they already said that there won't be dragons, they told that they are just legends in the time where the game is set, so, this confuses me

"No Dragons (Oh God, finally we get dragons in Skyrim and now they just put them away?!, that's sad )"
Quote from: UESPDragons became more elusive after losing their grip on power. Their numbers dwindled over the years due to many causes: their population in Akavir was wiped out by the Tsaesci, who also brought their onslaught to Tamriel, and the dragons in Vvardenfell were overrun by invading cliff racers. The Akaviri Dragonguard and its successor, the Blades, along with other heroes, hunted dragons and their followers throughout the eras until dragons were nearly extinct.

Quote from: Torhal BjorikThe surviving dragons scattered, choosing to live in remote places away from men. The dragon cult itself adapted and survived. They built the dragon mounds, entombing the remains of dragons that fell in the war. They believed that one day the dragons would rise again and reward the faithful.
Quote from: UESPTiber Septim offered those who remained protection in return for their fealty. Despite his pledge, almost all known wild dragons were killed or driven off, disappearing from sight in Tamriel.

Went to movie theater. Finding out seats are reserved.
Welp, looks like I won't get to see Star Trek 3D today.

And if this is true I think you punched a hole in Magus Magic-Theory, a hole right where EP an even Pegasi should have been.
Might I ask what the Magus Magic-Theory is? I haven't been able to find anything about it from google-ing.

perhaps:[quote author=The Wandering Magus link=topic=642.msg24964#msg24964 date=1333207537]
all types of magic are different but essentially driven by the same thing: willpower. They are also seamlessly intertwined with pony biology; in fact, mana channels in ponies work remarkably like Chi lines in humans, affecting every part of the body and being effected by the body in turn. Focus points of the channels differ from race to race.
For instance, the main focus point on unicorns is obviously the horn. Although on the outside it is mostly hardened bone, it can still feel sensations of heat, and is filled with mana channels linked directly to the unicorn's neurological system.
Pegasus ponies have less obvious magic, but their focus points are clearly distributed throughout the wings. Although their biology is generally optimized, their flight is actually predicated on their special magic aura, which creates an invisible aerodynamic shield around them and channels the wind. This same shield is what allows them to walk on clouds or create storms and gale winds. It is not only weather, but also to a certain extent gravity-based, and with careful training it is theoretically possible for pegasi to control gravity much as they control weather.
Earth ponies are by far the least obvious in terms of magic. Their mana channels do not have specific focus points that I can think of, except perhaps their hooves. They are linked intimately with the ley energies rooted in the very soil of Equestria, thus giving them access to their plant abilities.
There is crossover between the three races whenever focus points are placed differently due to genetics; for example, some unicorns are capable of flight due to vestigial wing focus points left over from pegasus ancestry. Some pegasi have focus points on their hooves, linking them with the ley energies and thus with the earth.

Now biologically, the mana channels within the body are most concentrated in organs called mana glands. These glands contain pockets of concentrate mana surrounded by cells which purify the substance. Small resonance channels act like tiny biological pumps, bringing mana into magic resonance coils which interact with the aether of the Equestrian atmosphere. When these coils resonate together, they create the magic fields which in turn create the observable effects, such as giving off electromagnetic waves.
Unicorn horns are comprised of a thick bundle of nerves called a horn chord with mana channels and blood vessels surrounding it and branching out into a biological array of mana glands. Marrow insulates and protects the glands and chord from damage and excessive vibration. Near the base of the horn are pheremone glands linked to some of the mana channels leading to a small opening at the tip of the horn. These sensitive constructs are surrounded in turn by the bony horn itself, which being hard layers of dead cells has no nerves or blood vessels to damage. Due to varying thickness along its length however, valleys in the horn and especially the base and tip of the horn can be sensitive to vibration and temperature differences.
Pegasus wings themselves are mostly similar to a mix between bird and bat wings; three "finger feather" bone structures extend from the wrist joint along with tendons connected to muscles at the base of the elbow joint on the wing. These "finger feather" bones are crucial to pegasus magic. The structure is similar to unicorn horns: a core bundle of nerves, blood vessels and mana channels with mana glands branching out from it, surrounded by protective marrow and sheathed in bone. Unlike unicorn horns, however, the bones here are covered with two additional layers of flesh- a layer of blood vessel-dense spongy tissue, and a layer of nerve-dense skin, which are then connected to the less sensitive skin stretching between "finger feathers" and the arm. These sensitive areas are protected by layers of down and rigid bony feathers. When stimulated in particular manners, the spongy tissue fills with blood, causing the wings to involuntarily flare and the protective feathers to rise, exposing the sensitive down and skin beneath in a vestigial courting display.
Earth pony mana focus points are as of yet unknown, but are believed to contain similar constructs of mana channels and glands.
Quote from: summarizing a bit of MagusMana (aka Magic) flows through unicorn and focusses itself in the horn.
but it flows through Pegasi and Earth Ponies too with as focus points respectively their wings and an unknown body part presumably hooves.

They should do the same as they did during previous event which was 3 day public gameplay (stress test).
Becouse now there will be couple hundred people replying that they cant attend.
Worry not, silly filly. There will be plenty of chances.
