    SETTING
    A WORLD AWAKENING
    The soul of the nascent Titan within Azeroth stirs as shadow threatens to consume all. Although conquered, the Dark Titan’s defeat has had dire consequences. The world’s torment has shattered a link in the prison of an ancient enemy, and the threads of chaos that lead to its freedom have been drawn. It is up to you to gather the knowledge of old, and venture into forgotten lands to stem the tide of darkness that threatens our world, and ensure this God of the Deep remains imprisoned.
    VIEW THE MAP
    THE NEW WORLD
    Only through the champions of Azeroth, will the answers be found to what truly threatens our world. The corruption seeping into reality has spread throughout all Kalimdor, the Eastern Kingdoms and Northrend. Where new kingdoms have risen, shadow falls. Venture out into the new world and uncover the secrets of what is causing chaos in the realms. The various threats of Azeroth that have sprung up around you are only the beginnings of unfolding stories in greater battles to come.
    KUL’TIRAS
    The island human capital of Kul’tiras, has fallen to terrible darkness. Lady Jaina Proudmoore has traveled to her homeland, only to find chaos. In desperate hours, Jaina calls upon the Alliance and the Horde to aid in exterminating corruption.The tendrils of evil will spread if not slain at the root, and Azshara’s invading armies welcome this evil. It is our duty to journey to Kul’tiras, and fight to redeem order. However, not all who land on these shores look to preserve peace, and old hatreds are rekindled. Take to the seas in your new Warships to dispose of your enemies, And strike at the heart of shadow.
    THE DRAGON ISLES
    The Dragon Isles, enchanted lands gleaming with the remaining powers of the aspects, has fallen under control of the Infinite Dragonflight. The Guardian of Time, Nozdormu has fled into the Timeways from their grasp. The rifts they open among the Dragon Isles in their ravenous search bring back familiar and entirely bizarre new enemies with their own motives. The Alliance and Horde face conflict among themselves and these time-anomalies, and Nozdormu is the key to reversing the damage.
    NAZJATAR
    The ancient lands beneath the sea have been risen to the surface in wonderous glory. Queen Azshara’s wrath threatens all of Azeroth, and the search to destroy her brings the heroes of the Alliance and Horde to her risen empire.The Tidestone of Golganneth has been depleted, for a time. However the potential devastation proven by Nazjatar’s rebirth leaves no time to waste. Storm the tides of doom and reclaim the Tidestone, or drown in the glory of their wicked master.
    HEROES & VILLAINS
    THE PILLARS OF CREATION
    Although key in our victory against the Legion, the pillars have been left in the Tomb of Sargeras, and in our hastiness our battles on Argus left them vulnerable. The strength of the Titans is now in the hands of evil.
    QUEEN AZSHARA, EMPRESS OF NAZJATAR
    The Tidestone of Golganneth has been acquired by Queen Azshara’s forces, and she has risen her ancient kingdoms from the depths, and in the new dawn of the Nazjatar Empire, Azshara’s experiments have created new life among the Naga in the light of her perfection. But, Tidestone’s might is not what is once was since it was, and Azshara’s wrath can still yet hope to be stopped. Her new armies storm the shores of our homes, and the Tidestone will have the energy for devastation soon. Even without the pillar, the theat Queen Azshara poses could rupture the foundations of our known world.
    MAGNI BRONZEBEARD, HAND OF THE EARTHBREAKER
    The Hammer of Khaz’goroth, was seized by Magni Bronzebeard as soon as he returned to Azeroth. Suspected to be an uncontrollable defense-mechanism from the World Soul, he was trusted to take it to the Molten Core in Blackrock Mountain. But the seeds of darkness have rooted deep into Azeroth, and horrible truth has been revealed that the King of Diamonds, has been deceived. The whispers from the earth brought darkness into Magni’s mind. Now, the corrupted Dwarven Lord has forged a new army, and seeks to bend the Core of the Earth to even further shatter the world, unleashing his new master and his vile servants.
    HAKKAR THE SOULFLAYER
    The Tears of Elune, left in the Tomb’s Elven resting grounds has been singing quietly. The connection to the spirit realm vibrates strong there, and the pillar has not gone unnoticed from the other side. A blood-crazed evil stirs in the realm of shadows, and the sanctum has been overrun with fanatical worshippers from Zandalar. These desperate Trolls have taken the Tears and the leftover Engine of Souls to the Hinterlands. The city of Jintha’Alor has been seduced into bringing forth Hakkar’s rebirth with a forgotten Egg, that will become his avatar.
    HIGHKEEPER ODYN & RA
    The Aegis of Aggramar, once used to shield the Azeroth’s soul from madness, has been taken into friendly hands by Odyn and his Valajar once again. With the Titans imprisoned, the Highkeeper has found new purpose in uniting the remaining Keepers and their cause. Ra and Odyn lead the expedition to acquire the Discs of Norgannon. Where only the gates had been excavated, the city that lay beyond has been open at last. And inside, Uldaman, the Forge of Illumination. A Titan city locked under the deep places of the earth holds secrets to defeating the Old Gods. Only the enemy was a step ahead, and the Discs have been taken by horrors of the deep further into the forgotten vault.
    THE INFINITE DRAGONFLIGHT
    The Eye of Aman’thul, capped at the bottom of the Tomb, was our key into the Nether and defeating the Legion, as well as the prosperity of the Nightborne. The temporal powers granted by the Eye are now in the hands of the Infinite Dragonflight. Who have stolen the rings away to the Dragon Isles, where the Infinite plans a ritual to corrupt the Aspect of Time, Nozdormu. The quest for immortality has lead others to the Isles, and the events that play out could very well change of the course of destiny.

    To be honest, as clearly fake as this is, I have to say that the formatting really gives the feeling of being copy/pasted in a hurry, which at least makes it seem pretty convincing. I have to say that you did well with that, so it's not as bad as usual as far as fake expansion leaks go.

    Sadly, the obviously fake date sells it. It's very unlikely that they'd release an expansion in January of the year after it's announced.

    Is the "1.25.18" supposed to be the release date? Because that's NEVER going to happen lol

    Also can tell it's instantly fake because Jaina would never ask the Horde for help of any kind. Blizzard would sooner kill her off than pull the stick out of her ass.

    Pretty much. Basically saying its fake, saves time from reading the rest.

    It's very clever. And the content is actually really believable and possible, though there are some grammar and wording issues that don't fit a typical blizzard announcement.

    But I want this one.

    This is the only part really not believable "Jaina calls upon the Alliance and the Horde to aid in exterminating corruption."

    As fake leaks go, this one is a bit better-done than most. The screenshot fake is decent enough, most of the text is lore-relevant/compliant (a few hiccups in there like Jaina going to the Horde for help rather than the Horde retaking, say, Kezan or being invited into Undermine), and it fits in with the general trend of South Seas-oriented content.

    I quite like this one... Esp the reworked Azeroth, 1-120 level scaling and the new character customization options xD

    But ye, too good to be true

    You had something going, but literally the first thing you add is a release date. And Jaina calling both Horde and Alliance? I admit, I'd laugh if Blizzard actually did that.

    As far as leaks go this does sound pretty cool.

  15. #15
    This is the least believable "leak" yet. Better luck next time.

    Why do people do this, anyway?
