    PTR 5.2 - Thunder king island

    Anyone else think that this island thing is very cool looking, but on the other hand.. should they had made this island already a burning legion content?

    I'm not really sure how those thoughts are related. A Burning Legion themed raid/zone would've looked completely different.

    No I think the island itself is kind of swamp and "demonic" looking.

    1) Yes it looks cool
    2) No? It looks nothing like a Burning Legion place?
    Why would it look like a Burning Legion place?

    The legion don't inhabit swamps, their areas of choice are burning red/green ashlands filled with lava and fire plumes.

    Yeah, just look at the major bastions of Burning Legion influence. Hellfire Peninsula? Totally barren wasteland. Shadowmoon Valley? Barren wasteland with lava. And even in the more fertile zones in Outland, the Burning Legion's locations are mostly burnt and blackened with few structures. If the Burning Legion suddenly moved into Thunder Isle, I guarantee that it would look almost completely different very quickly.

    Seconded.

    I wonder if there are more islands out there like the Isle of Giants, with more dinosaur creatures... too bad Zandalar sank, there was probably all kinds there.

    Just look at the Caverns of Time, the Dark Portal used to lead to a swamp.
    What remains of the swamp after the Legion moved in and through is a dry red dustbowl :P

    Well, looking at Zul's prophecy, we might yet see it in a Naga-centric expansion. Though it may be a little... wet.

    Yeah, after I read that I was thinking that Zandalar'd be a prime candidate for stuff Azshara is going to raise from the bottom of the ocean.

    I suppose all the dinosaurs would be undead, drowned corpses animated by the anguished spirits of troll magic-users... so yay, I think!

    Apparently you can buy a Raptor mount for 9999x dinosaur bones.

    Anyone seeing a new Raptor Model inc soon? or do you think they're just gnna use a re-skin on the lvl 40 ones?

    It uses the same model as the old Ivory Raptor that was removed from the game a few months after the launch of Vanilla
