    Semi hidden, hidden meaning out of the way, semi meaning only slightly, like off the coast, in the sea?

    So tell me.... how many people actually noticed it was there before it was mentioned to them? I would still classify that as somewhat hidden.

    I had always assumed it was part of Chromatus, but when I researched it just now I see that his body is stored in the Borean Tundra.

    This came up when Wrath was the latest expansion. Blizzard said it is just there to be there. It looks cool, nothing else. I think they might have even said we can just pretend it was a giant sea creature that died there. Now of course this was said long ago, so I don't have a source, but I'm 90% sure that is what they said about it when asked before.

    We'll get that Galakrond and that skeleton as bosses in the Wrath of the Bolvar King expansion.

    I found this thing the first day LK was live. I just thought it was the same thing I think now: a huge sea creature like a megladon or something. And if the expansion incoming is indeed Naga themed I'm willing to bet there's something MUCH bigger and nastier out there.

    I think people are forgetting the fact that in game scale =/= actual lore scale. Just because one thing is bigger in game doesn't mean its bigger in lore. Just look at arthas, he's like 3 player characters tall. Does that mean we are all midgets? no.

    True, but to be fair, Arthas was a fairly tall human by Warcraft universe standards (I think?). Of course his model was still "overgrown" because of his status, but even without that he's still quite large.

    Anyway, this kind of underwater stuff creeps me out for some reason, yet at the same time I find it really awesome. The first time I met that kraken swimming around in Vashj'ir I nearly shat my pants in surprise. Hell, swimming close to the Whale Shark, even today, still makes me kinda nervous. I cannot imagine a creature that large in-game. I also had no knowledge of this "Manta" creature, was it ever mentioned in WoW? If it was, it's odd that I missed it, since I tend to read quests at least once...

    This is very interesting. I hope we get some info on that dragon stuff.
    Dot, Dot, Dot... Who's there ??

    I still want to know what's up with those giant snake-man skeletons in Desolace... If we've gone 8 years without an answer to that, don't expect one for this thing either.

    This was posted many many many many many times during Wrath. :P

    They are most likely agents of the Old Gods. Maybe they are Hakkar's in-laws as well.

    How do you know that's a dragon? It could be a Sea Creature?

  15. #55
    Most likely was just some fun thing put in by Blizzard. It certainly could be this Manta beast, but I'm almost positive that this skeleton will never be of any real purpose.

    Key word is usually. Besides, I'm not sure I'd classify this as an Easter Egg. It's just a little something they put where they didn't think many would find it.

    If I had to guess? A bored game developer playing with the texturing tool. Unlike Galakaron, or the other skeletons in Dragonblight, this skeleton is actually just painted onto the ground.

    Anyway, if you're talking about size... actually LOOK at the skeletons in Dragonblight. Almost all of them are several times larger than even the aspects.

    Blizzard isn't good with scale.

    First of all, there's nothing that confirms that this is even a dragon. And second, it probably means nothing. Blizzard likes to leave in things that they themselves haven't really thought about, like that giant snake tail in one of those Drakkari instances.

    Who cares? It's dead so it can't really be an end boss unless Bolvar decides to go apeshit and raise him as an undead.

    ok so upon inspecting this thing using an aqua jewel on my intrepid rogue (who has a lazy person's engineering portal to northrend) I got a very good look at it. The head is massive and appears to have horns, a long neck, shoulder blades and ribs, almost like a cloud serpent skeleton but it seems like there's only half of it; it just sorta ends, and its not textured as bones but rather lighter coloured rocks on the seafloor. it looks neat but Im not sure if its intended to be anything or just a neat landmass easter egg.
    If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

    I think it's just a skeleton of a sea creature from the pre-historic days of Azeroth. Remember the Dwarves at the camp in Stranglethorn? The Gnome I think it was . . . carbon dated the rock and it was found to be 135,000 years old. So that means WoW does have a pre-historic history.
