    Not necessarily. It could easily be spliter faction that has regained a portion of their former intelligence (post Cataclysm or something) and wants to make amends to their former brother and sisters (NEs) and bring down the source of their curse, Azshara. Not at all a stretch given what we've seen in the past.

    almost nothing was correct, actually.
    No offense, but either you can't read or English is not your native language, because the fact of the fact of the matter is that everything in the link you provided is in reality (AKA not your bs obviously wrong fantasy world) extremely close what MOP ended up being. It only gets minor details wrong, because if you know a single thing about any kind of collaborative process like making a game or a movie or music or something, you know that things change over the course of production and these links come out in the pre production stages before the game even has an alpha build. So seriously, you're not speaking from a place of authority kid, so don't delude yourself.

    The actual differences between this guys MOP leak and what MOP ended up being are extremely marginal differences at best.

    This guy obviously has been at the spoiler game for some time, the same post styling has been present in all of his leaks since TBC and he only gets minor details wrong, which have in fact always turned out to be features that were slightly changed or in some cases abandoned until later (see: PATH OF THE TITANS).

    So please, I mean no offense but you're just a fan who may or may not like the leaked info, but no one cares. Get over yourself. The ability to have an opinion does NOT in fact mean that your opinion deserves consideration. No offense, but yours is obviously based on faulty information.

    I mean really dude "almost nothing was correct" is such a grossly off the mark judgement of that post that it's not even close to resembling reality. This is like saying the back of the box game description of MOP is also incorrect.

    Get real.

    This guy's MoP "leak" wasn't even remotely right about anything. Just as much as his "Dark Below leak" can be dismissed simply because he got the warchief wrong. He was making stuff up, that's it.

    Actually there were huge portions of it wrong, from major characters to entire races and class mechanics.

    They based a lot of what they said on already existing and popular discussions by other people.

    Little to nothing in their predictions are their own.
    These "leaks" never came out before the discoveries by other people, only after.
    Always late to the party and echoing ideas the community already liked.

    As stated, something like the Warchief is a huge story plot to get wrong proving beyond any reasonable doubt it was a fabrication.

    I read the thing twice just to make sure I didn't miss anything... the guy had like 10%(I'm just being generous here) of the expansion right... everything else was just utter bullshit...

    I'm gonna take this one step further. I'm gonna mark everything red this guy was wrong about. I'm gonna leave everything black he was right about, but was easy to guess, because it was obvious, like asian theme. I'm gonna mark everything blue, he was right about, and that is very rich in detail and would be hard to guess.

    >moral choices are to play a role.
    Many complained about questlines such as much of the new forsaken experience where players had to do things like kill refugees to raise as forsaken to turn on their own families. Players in surprisingly large numbers complained 'MY character wouldnt do these things'. Now they do not have to.

    The beginnings of a questline and the end may be very different for players based on their choices in the quests events. This was tentatively implemented in some cataclysm zones. For example when you capture a harpy in mount hyjal you may either kill her or let her go free. The information gained from these little tester options revealed players enjoyed the choice to make a choice. Not simply picking the 'good' option because it was 'good'.

    This means, aside from the two final zones, phased players may have different experiences in zones.
    Certain points will remain the same for group daily questing. But now more than ever your story is your own. Your friend may choose gold and riches over saving a town in Kul tiras and see only a dead ruin when they fly over. You may choose honour over riches and save the town. Giving you a different source of daily quests- but not more- and making your character seem to have more of an impact on the world as you see it than simply 'x landscape becomes y for everyone as they beat the questline for the zone'.


    >>112809946
    ah, excuse me, said i was trying to go faster. Monks are available for ogres. as well. Anyway, continuing on.
    >Archeology is effectively being scrapped. Without path of the titans- which was to be the focus of it- it culminated in nothing more than a grind most players when polled equated to more of a chore than fishing.

    >Ability to learn via cyphers the languages of the other faction one by one. Eg a alliance player with this still unnamed profession (working title rumoured to be 'artistry') can read the many books lying around the world and find enough 'cyphers of lordaeron' to learn gutterspeak.

    RAIDS:
    >raiding is nowhere near finished compared to the work done on classes, zones, professions and lore. So i have very little info here.

    >3 raids at the start. One is called "Karazhan: The Inverted Tower", the second is an tol barad/ vault raid with one new boss per content patch situated on the isle of lost souls. The third is story heavy and as such is barely off the drawing board at this point in terms of design.

    >eg: for 600,000g the currently alpha tested artefact tier item is the guild airship vehicle.

    personally ive got tired of tank and spanks so this may be fun.

    CONT. almost done. leaving a lot for blizzcon. Too many complained that in spoiling it all last year you found the game less fun when i spoilt it all for you. ending with some stuff left unsaid this time.
    LORE:
    >anduin has taken arch bishop bendictus' place in the stormwind cathedral. something varian is not happy with.
    >the diamond form of magni bronzebeard has begun to stir. With earthen gathering at ironforge talking in hushed whispers about a "prophecy fulfilled"
    >sylvanas does NOT have the shards of frostmourne. You will never guess who does and what they have done with them.
    >Baine is married and the tauren now have a 'queen'.
    >the earthern ring have settled the orc/nelf ashenvale dispute. Teaching the orcs how to harvest their lumber, whilst not damaging the already wounded forests of kalimdor.
    >the blue child has returned to the sky. With it whispers of a 'new nightmare'. What does this have to do with the return of shando stormrage?
    >with the past altered from the events of dragon soul the bronze flight are attempting to 'fix' paradoxes that they deem have no place in this timestream. How will Malfurion act when he see's his uncorrupted brother Illidan is being hunted to the death by the bronze flight and the children of moruzond?
    >Thrall is overjoyed to learn aggra is pregnant. However there are movements to ensure these children of prophecy are never allowed to be born.

    CONT.
    >of course, Azshara finally makes her appearance. With deathwing gone she is the only remaining old god minion of any true power left. With the forces of azeroth finally seeing a light at the end of a long bloody tunnel the minions of darkness are getting desperate and she is no different. She wants what the dragon emporer kept hidden for millenia and she is willing to spend the lives of every naga on getting it.
    >Not all naga agree.
    >"Seven swords for seven soldiers. The light fights shadow and the riders meet in the dream" - some connection to the seven swords? including frostmourne? the dark riders of karazhan? which is getting another raid? are the swords for them? or a new group of 'rdiers' to oppose them?
    >who forged frostmourne and gave it to the lich king nerzul? what is their connection to the dark riders? and why has bolvars "damned legion" sent envoys to the horde and alliance?

    >the reliquary seem to have a hidden agenda connected to a 'complex' they have begun to uncover west of tirisfal glades. the explorers league thinks this cant be good. however garrosh is focussing on the sylvanas problem right now so lorethemar's own vying for ancient power have gone unnoticed.
    >TWO FACTION LEADERS WILL DIE IN EXPANSION 4.
    >Velen will make one final prophecy that will shake the wow universe to its foundation.
    And I was really generous when I marked the two things blue. You only have to read it to realize it's crap.

    Goblins are neutral. So they made a splinter faction that wasn't neutral and chose the Horde. Worgen were savage, wild beasts. Then they made up a storyline, where the Worgen could join the Alliance. Eredar were servants of the Burning Legion, so they made up a story, where some of them were uncorrupted and in opposition to the Legion.

    Yeah this leak is BS, his previous ones were BS. It's simple as that. I don't think the next xpac will be The Dark Below. I think they're going to use an old trademark they have.

    As we also know it was called a hoax, and it was removed from the trademark database in europe. They'd need to re-trademark it to be able to use it in Europe. I am betting it'll be a previous title they already have trademarked. It doesn't have to be a new one especially if it is burning legion themed there are a lot of burning legion titles that they could easily use.


    I was also thinking the title is a complete dead give away of the expansion, so they may be waiting to trademark it til like..it's revealed? idk.

    I'm glad someone actually dug that up, if there was any doubt left we can safely conclude that this leak is fake, especially since "The Dark Below" most likely wasn't a real trademark to begin with.

    I still find it hilarious how anyone ever treated ANY of these as a legit "leak", first off. Then furthermore, immediately associating other anonymous "leaks" to the same "source" and claiming that by no functioning logic at all that they are all the same and none are real xD

    Smart people never treated "The Dark Below" "leak" as a leak, just as some good speculation. Similar to the MoP speculation, it just makes pretty good points and assumptions based on the current lore, that could have easily happened. Just because they seem silly in retrospect doesn't make them terrible ideas, they could have happened. Some things don't seem anymore unlikely than "players can have their own noodle stands"

    None of these are ofc legit, you may well find some major elements of TDB to be accurate though, since it's like a 30% chance i'd say. There's Azshara/N'zoth, then there's the Legion, and then some other scenario we can't foresee atm, so the overall theme has a 1/3 chance i'd say of being accurate, higher than the Legion for many reasons already discussed in many other threads.

    TL;DR - these aren't legit, treat them as speculation, and don't assume two posts from anonymous people are from the same one when neither are legit...you're being trolled

    Very nice work but there were some things you marked red which turned out true.

    "tank/healer specialisim" <<<<<True but you marked red
    "3 raids at the start." <<<<<<True but you marked red
    "Joining the alliance or horde" <<<<<< That part was true although the followup "based on your own moral choices" was untrue and you marked it red correctly

    "PROFESSIONS:
    brewmaster is NOT being added. blizzard does not wish to glorify alcohol consumption in a game aimed at teens. brewfest has been trouble enough."
    Ture but you marked red. Although in general spoiling something that won't be added to the game wouldn't be a great achievment, this specifically provides somewhat of an insight even because Blizzard indeed had trouble with Brewfest and censored it in Europe first, and then for all countries[Quest requiring to get drunk got removed/altered].

    "More gear producing recipes to be common mob drops rather than relying on trainers. again. they want you out in the world, not in cities for MoP."
    You marked that red but it was the case for a lot of Professions, like for Example the Alchemist's stone or many Jewelcrafting recipes ("designs") drop randomly and in 5.4 Many Professions have random recipes being world drops. The "they want you to go out in the world, not in cities for MoP" sentence is also very true and it is something the Blues posted a lot. I don't remember when they started posting so it is possible the spoiler-writer just copy&pasted a Blue Post here.

    Well this was a long text so obviously anyone can make a few mistakes, I myself would probably have made way more.

    There also some parts like
    "TWO FACTION LEADERS WILL DIE IN EXPANSION 4" you marked red but it is impossible to tell because we don't know whether they will survive Patch 5.5 and the intermediate 6.0 Launch Event. (Although their survival is highly probable as of now)

    Question?
    "there are new areas included other than Pandaria." This you marked black but I don't remember, are there some Areas outside of Pandaria and it's surrounding Islands? Do the changes in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, and Barrens count as *new areas* or did I forget something?


    Omake:
    "all tier pieces will drop in raids only." <<<<< false but you didn't mark red

    True my ass. There is a "way of the brew" line in cooking with and achievement "MASTER OF THE BREW" and a whole zone about making beer and fighting beer beings so that is just crap. That dude is an asshole, like any other troll

    Marked it red because it's missing the DPS specialization. Took that as "Monks will only have tank and heal spec".

    Yeah he got the number right, but that's just a good guess. He got the themes completely wrong.

    He wasn't talking about the Pandaren though. He said Pandaren wouldn't even be playable. He was talking about Monks, who would be able to join the Alliance or Horde. And by that he claimed that Human Monks would for example be able to join the Horde, and Tauren Monks would be able to join the Alliance. So in that context, he was wrong.

    Brewmaster is part of the Monk class and beer is all over Pandaria.

    Jewelcrafting recipes aren't for gear, only for certain gems. I was more thinking about Blacksmith, Leatherworking and Tailor. I don't know of many common mob drops that give you gear recipes.

    I seriously doubt they would kill off 2 faction leaders in a filler patch, but as of now, it's wrong.

    I count the Wandering Isle, but I made it black, because it's hardly difficult to predict they would add starter zones to an expansion.
