    I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sick of Old Gods, and have been since about halfway through Cataclysm, Demons on the other hand, well, let's just say the Warlock Green Fire Chain raises some questions.

    No no no... I meant "When, exactly, has Blizzard outright denied anything that leaked - but was actually true in reality"?

    The most they do is throw out red herrings to try to make it seem like something it's not, like the extra Halloween masks - and now, this.

    Mists of Pandaria doesn't sound that interesting either. I remember when that title was leaked people were denying it as well. And rightly so, I wish this expansion never happened.

    I would tend to agree with mvallas. They said that MoP could be anything and that we are blowing it out of proportion, but they did not specifically say it was not the xpac and that it was fake. Blizzard has performed misdirection and even deception when it comes to information they wish to keep secret, but they rarely if ever blatantly deny or lie about it.

    I unno, I was just quoting what that guy said and how the other guy read it wrong.

    WotLK had black dragonflight shenanigans that dealt with the Twilight Dragons, PLUS the twilight's hammer skulking around in Ulduar.

    And MoP's story arc wasn't completely out of left field, with Garrosh... though it IS worth noting that Blizzard had said they planned a different expansion before MoP, but proceeded to MoP.

    But it's hardly left-field when we've been expecting N'zoth and Azshara for years beforehand. We know they're now planning 2-3 expansions hense, and N'zoth/Azshara would tie in perfectly with Vashj'ir's story. Just suppose for a moment that the Abyssal Maw raid was canned because they decided heading down that hole to confront Azshara and N'zoth was expansion rather than raid worthy?
    Except the Naga and ALL of N'zoth's forces have completely dropped off the map in ANY iteration in story points. Like I said, there hasn't been a BREATH of Naga or N'zoth-related Old god activity AT ALL in the entirety of MoP. What HAS there been evidence of? Burning Legion activity.

    He may be two in dragon years, but in story and in game he's still incredibly one dimensional because he's been actually pretty marginal in those two years. He's supposed to be a big new major NPC and if his focus is, as it has been since day one, on the Legion. Fighting the Legion is his self appointed and only real purpose, and rushing him into that feels a really weak thing to do from a storytelling standpoint. If it's not his final chapter, then he absolutely needs more character development to make him useful and interesting after the Legion expansion we're expecting.
    No one said we'd be fighting Sargeras in the next expansion, and, frankly, I doubt we would even if it was legion themed. Kil'jaeden makes much more sense. And even if Kil'Jaeden is taken out of the picture, Sargeras would still be around.
