hi I have a friend who works in Blizzard and last night I got a bit of information about the next expansion from her. Basically the whole thing is based around the Naaru and their plans finally being revealed coming into fruition. Both Elune and the Tauren's sun god are revealed as Naaru who have been present on Azeroth for a long time.
The Naaru themselves aren't exactly what we've been led to believe, they are the lingering souls of a race that were deemed chaotic by the Titans and thus destroyed very early on (contrary to them being created at the dawn of time). They oppose both the Titans and the Burning Legion and have been constructing an army of light to essentially resist both. Azeroth has been on their radar for a long time and it is no coincidence that the Orcs and Draenai ended up on Azeroth. Velen is privy to much of this information.
Another important storyline tidbit she gave me is that apparently there is a civil war in the burning legion. Kil'Jaeden, who has become increasingly powerful over time, has rebelled against Sargeras in his weakened state since Medivh's death and now commands many of the legions species including the eredar demons and pitlords.
She would not reveal who the main bad guy is in the expansion, but we will be finding out the fate Alleria. Let's just say she's not so friendly any more *wink wink*. Turalyon apparently followed her through the portal and now leads some kind of resistance on the other side...
She told me some features of the expansion:
- Will be set mainly on the legion home world of Argus
- level cap is 90
- new demon hunter class available to all races.
- new soul shifting mechanic. She wouldn't reveal anything about it
- path of the titans re-introduced
- time travel will be involved, and we will get to see how Argus fell. Not sure if via instances, or zones set in the past
she is gonna be mad about me posting this shit, but fuck it lol
