    Next WoW expansion "Leak"

    So, the last years a guy on 4chan/v/ posted "leaks" about the next comming expansion.

    Its always soon after the trademark name was released and 90% of what he said was always true, every time proven at the blizzcon later.

    This said guys just posted his "infos" again.

    As always, i do not recommend to trust any of this, but this guys was right since TBC.

    Lots of tl;dr incomming



    Sup guys, its that time of year again. As usual I post, you call bullshit, its all confirmed at blizzcon. So buckle up.

    World of Warcraft: The Dark Below
    >covers levels 90 to 100
    >The primary antagonist’s are Azshara and her naga, N’zoth and his faceless ones and the kvaldir clashing with the zandalari
    >No new character models planned at launch as they are getting sub race options which require more animation time
    >Zones will be connected to other locations in the game and can be accessed from above in their lore respective zones, however they can also be accessed by underground tunnels called the “Webway”, ancient aqir carved deep roads that act as deeprun tram style shortcuts to keep everything feeling connected.
    >Locations are split between underwater, underground and island based.
    >no new level of flying, climbing arachnid mounts for underground, some new aquatic mounts including a ship take their place.

    Zones:
    >lvl. 90-92 Azjol-Nerub, The New Kingdom: In the wake of wrath of the lich king the remaining nerubians not cursed to a life of undeath have thrived in a far less predatory environment and the hive city is once again alive with activity. However they have unearthed an artefact related to “The Final Titan” which has lead to the city nation coming under siege from Nzoth’s faceless army. They have sent envoys to both Alliance and Horde to come to the aid. The zone is an underground city complex based off the instances in wrath of the lich king

    >lvl. 90-92 Kul Tiras: The results of the end of the siege of Orgimmar have lead jaina on a journey of rediscovering what life and family means to her. Using the magical assets of dalaran she has relocated her home island nation just in time to discover the once peaceful port she called home is under siege by naga in unprecedented numbers. Jainas brother has located something called “The heart of neptulon” which both naga and for some reason the forsaken are seeking.
    CONT.
    >lvl. 92-94 The Maelstrom: Thanks to the efforts of thrall and the earthen ring, aided by the begrudging earth mother Therazane to heal the wounds caused by Deathwings cataclysm, the once furiously churning Maelstrom has quieted. Both the explorers guild and the reliquary seek to explore the littered ring of uncharted islands around the former engine of chaos and destruction that has left a graveyard of half destroyed galleons littered around the islets that mark its outer edge. Who knows what long lost relics have come to rest on these shores?

    >lvl. 93-95 World’s Heart: At the centre of the aqir web way lies the centre of the colossal titan world engine. A massive installation known as the worlds heart. Once left to gather dust and lie forgotten it is now the focus of N’zoths second attempt to reorigionate the entire world in his own image. Fortunately the engine has been under the watch of an unexpected protector, Magni Bronzebeard the Diamond king of the Earthen has awoken ready to call heros to the halls below the Iron Forge to save the Worlds Heart from the old gods.
    >lvl. 94-96 Ruins of Tel’dranash: Deep below darkshore waits a labyrinthine maze of Kaldorei ruins. Spirits of long dead and long tormented Highborne roam these dead halls where the minions of the old gods seek both the origional moonwell “The tear of Elune” and to poison the roots of Teldrassil to fell the great treetop home of the Night Elves. Players are sent to explore the newly discovered entrance to the ruins in Remtravel’s Excavation by both Malfurion Stormrage and Warchief Lor’themar to stop the corruption of Kalimdors forests from the roots – and to make sure the other faction doesn’t obtain any possible long lost Highborne relics of power that may remain in the ruins.

    CONT.

    >lvl 95-97 Gishan Caverns: Taking the fight to the Naga a coalition of Goblins and Gnomes have, when not breaking out into fights over which is the better explosive the use, have excavated a series of caverns from one of the larger islands surrounding the maelstrom into deep volcanic caverns filled with giant creatures. Players will be cut off from their escape and discover why even the Naga fear to tread here.

    >lvl 96: The Drowned Reaches: This far below the sea even light may die. Heros that breach the danger of the Gishan Caverns find an undersea forest of dark coral, luminescent monsters and amidst the ancient Highborne temples and rotten sea vessels the unexpected reveal of the sunken ruins of Zandalar.
    Players will finally encounter the Prophet Zul, the avatar of Nzoth who is attempting to turn the imprisoned Zandalari that didn’t agree with his zealots into faceless ones for his masters army. A new faction “The Zandalar Court” are interacted with as The dethroned troll king Rastakhan pleads with the heros of both factions to defeat Zul and restore his people.

    >lvl 96-98: Nazjatar: Capital city of the Naga, seat of Queen Azshara, this ethereal city of lights at the bottom of the ocean has seen better days. The cataclysm rocked the world to its core, the ocean floor did not escape and nor did the city. Players have freed the Kraken from the nagas influence and in their frenzy are crushing the city beneath them.
    The naga appear to be on the retreat and the Alliance and Horde move in to end them. Never questioning just what they might be retreating to.

    >lvl 97-99: Nya’lotha, The Dead City: Following the Naga into the rift leads players to a sight that would drive a weaker resolve mad. Neither truly organic or Architecture we see the form of an Old God released. N’zoth does not reside in Ny’alotha, he IS Ny’alotha. An endless city of Madness and Despair twisting and winding in impossible ways in every direction. Players must take down all of N’zoth’s Generals and the remaining Naga before entering the core of N’zoth at the center of the tormented land.

    >lvl 100: The Rift of Aln/The Nightmare: Neither part of Azeroth or the Emerald Dream proper, The Rift of Aln is N’zoths pathway into the dream. His attempts to rebuild the world to his liking have failed multiple times in Azeroth. In a last ditch effort he has pushed through the bonds that kept his nightmare echo contained now that the green flight has lost most of its power. If the heros of Azeroth cannot stop N’zoth then he will rewrite the dream and endless darkness will pour from the worlds Emerald portals and drown the lands in eternal shadow.
    Dungeons:
    >Tomb of Sargeras
    >Bloodsail Cove
    >Mak’ara
    >The World Engine
    >Zandalar, The Drowned Treasury
    >Zandalar, Archive’s of History
    >Crypts of the Highborne
    >Heroic Blackfathom deeps
    >Heroic Azjol Nerub

    Raids:
    >The Abyssal Maw
    >Palace of the Consort
    >The Echoing Darkness

    Scenarios:
    >Whispering Woods
    >Faceless Invasion (Ironforge)
    >Naga Invasion (Silvermoon)
    >Too greedily and Too Deep
    >A Pirates Wedding Party
    >Horns of the Kval’dir
    >Blazing Shipyard
    >Infiltration
    >Tears of Elune
    >Battle for Gilneas
    >Battle for the Undercity

    Battlegrounds:
    >Azshara crater
    New system: PATH OF THE TITANS
    An account wide progression system where all characters on one account earn “Titanic Experience” that increases progression for all characters on the account in the new system. Sharing perks such as mounts at level 10 and +10% honour points in battlegrounds it allows players to enjoy the game on any character without feeling like they are being hindered too much by changing character.
    Milestones will also include cosmetic gear, rare cosmetic glyphs and booster packs for Blizzards Hearthstone digital CCG

    NO
    >new class
    >new races
    >models at launch
    >4th specs across the board

    i do not claim any of this to be true, but since he was right about the last expansions it COULD be true.

    4th specs across the board.


    FAKE!


    Also, pretty sure the zones were lifted directly off a speculation thread on these forums.

    Pity, a lot of it sounds like it could be fun. But this is just speculation, I don't see any reason to believe it.

    You don’t know how to read, don’t you?
    He said “ NO”, in capitals
    And I never red anything like that on this forums, so if its fake, he imagined it himself

    Once again reading is just too hard for people.
    IT SAYS
    NO 4TH SPEC! Gawd damn.

    Honestly I don't really trust it. But I'd honestly buy it if this is what it was.
    I'm not all that keen on a Naga/Old God expansion but this got me a little excited.

    Pity we still have months until we find out.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    In this person's defense, he does say "NO" to lead off the section that says "4th specs across the board", indicating that there will not be multiple fourth specs. I'm not saying this person is correct or crazy, I'm just saying..yeah.

    How can they do a Naga expansion without finally adding the playable naga?? That just sounds wrong.

    And the reason you say what is already stated above is?

    Anyway, Althought I doubt this to be true, I actually hope it is, because this sounds so awesome!

    He said no to all those things listed, which I'm fine with, well aside from no new models at launch, that is really lame. Unless they bring the next xpac out much faster than anyone expects and they progressively at a few races per patch, then we're good. All things said though, fake or not, I think it would make for one hell of an expansion.

    Sounds kind of cool, but.........2 levels at the Maelstrom? Huh?
    Also seems like everything is just being crammed in together and kind of makes no sense >_>

    We cannot prevent what we cannot predict ~

    Reading this made me hope that this is true because at the moment I fear that a strictly naga/old god expansion would be boring and Cata 2.0. Also, I want it to be true for the sake of Warchief Lor'themar, Azjol-Nerub, and Kul Tiras all coming to light.

    Whether it's true or not, I like it. Not the naga though. Also, I hope there is a new class (tinker plz).

  19. #19
    im willing to bet anything that NO WAY will there be 10 levels, as again we will have 5lvls so they can drag expacs out with 1/2 content for the same price as tbc/wolk

    I find some of this hard to believe - why would any "sub race" of the existing races require additional skeletal work? He specifically says that "animation work" is the reason the new models wouldn't be there at launch because subraces add it - that makes no sense; you add subraces....so? Subraces are almost all texture/particle work - I can't see any reason they'd need skeleton changes on top of creating whole fucking new skeletons.

    Sounds like this is someone's "wish list" for a new expansion more than the actual feature list.

    That said, I'd dig it to hell and back if it were true - spider mounts to navigate the terrain and climb walls? Fuck yes.
    Return of the Abyssal Maw raid? Yes.

    Is this true? Who the fuck knows.
