Not to mention Jainas brother makes an appearance. This would be the other brother, the one that Blizzard didn't make non-canoncial earlier
And i fail to see how Blizzard can make islands feel connected with a set of tunnels. They had an entire continent to work with in Cata and they still felt disjointed.
I literally tried to break this down by segments....
It was so bad by the time I hit zones I gave up.
Anyone who thinks this is real has no idea what quality content is.

Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.
Maybe I'll be back for WoW2, but probably not. - Slowpoke, the former Dokhidamo
I think this will at least have some truth to it. It seems like the direction that Blizzard is going in in terms of the theme of the next expansion, and the whole thing seems very reminiscent of the big Cata leak that happened.
At the very least, I think things like Kul'Tiras being a zone, the Tomb of Sargeras finally being used, and the main boss being Azshara are going to hold true. Stuff like a lack of a new race, revisiting Azjol-Nerub, that's the stuff I'm not totally sold on. Then again, if the title "The Dark Below" is real, then that could make some sense. Also, we know now that Defense of the Alehouse is very unlikely at this point.
Also I think Lor'themar Theron being the new Warchief makes sense, as the only other realistic candidate is Vol'jin and he has made no indication that he wants to be the head honcho. Lor'themar on the other hand has been getting his s*** together and making his presence known in the Horde.
Level 100 seems plausible too, we have the heirloom weapons from Garrosh, and while that could just as easily be a tooltip error, I think a lot of players have wanted a 10 level expansion for a while, and feel that 5 levels seems too small, even if it is just an arbitrary number.
All in all, this "leak" ties up a lot of loose ends in the lore that have been quiet for a while. Some of it is definitely fake, but I wouldn't be surprised to see that they got some of it right. We have no reason to suspect that we're heading into the Emerald Dream any time soon, or starting to rally against Sargeras in some way. So unless Blizz really pulls something out of their a** at Blizzcon, we can at least expect some kind of South Seas island/possibly underground expansion.
EDIT: It probably isn't a legitimate Blizzard leak though, just a few educated guesses.
Trusting source on 4chan. Totally Legit...
Fucking spare me please.
Personally, I don't see Warchief Lor'themar. I see something like what Ironforge has now, of a ruling council. Too much potential for one person to become corrupted, as we've seen with Garrosh, so they'll try to avoid setting someone else up in that position.
While I do think it's fake, it's well thought.
Blood elf Leader IS pretty much becoming Warchief. The amount of character development and the fact that he keeps in line Sylvanas in SoO ("raise our soldiers as undead again and I will kill you where you stand!") speak volumes.
Two or three fishy things imo:
Path of the Titans. However, they do regret MoP was very alt-unfriendly, so maybe they'll patch up with this. Titanic experience is by far the most stupid thing I read all day, but admittedly it is only 7 30 am.
Too many zones. Seriously. There's no way you can make so many full sized zones, so different, with so many different mechanics (underground, underwater, small islands but no flying mounts etc.)
Zandalari... I thought we were done with them. I thought the first wing of Tot was called LAST stand of the Zandalari for a reason.
Too many zones.. but I can believe it's possible with no new race or class. Some of the zone ideas sound really far fetched like Azjol Nerub. We do not know what old god do they pray to, and I wouldn't believe it's N'zoth. About the class/race thing. Good, I am getting sick of all that P: I want more focus on the expansion rather than new races or class. We got two expansions with 3 new races, I can live with one expansion without that, thanks. And classes? Nah. I want something new, but.. they wouldn't pull it off for me, dks and monks are a disappointment. (imho)
