    Exclamation Leak - World of Warcraft: Dark Side of Azeroth

    Basic plot revolves around N'zoth, the Naga, and introduction to the void lords. Queen Azshara, Jaina, Alleria, Tyralon, Khadgar, and Mangi are all main characters in the story. A new continent is discovered on the other side of the world, hence the name "Dark Side of Azeroth." Along with this new continent, Najazatar, Kul'tiras, Plunder isle, and other islands are all new areas. New an mystical creatures and races will be discovered on the new continent (13 zones), some of them are transformed creatures due to Azeroth's awakening, and Azeroth imbuing them with power (some of the races siphoning power from Azeroth herself) This will give the expansion more of a feeling of adventure and exploration rather than just needing to fight another world ending threat (although we do still need to deal with N'zoth and the naga, and eventually the void lords.

    Azeroth is in a weakened state from the happenings in Legion, and N'zoth, the naga and the void lords take advantage of this, giving them more power. While the heroes of Azeroth were busy on Argus, Azshara stole 2 relics including the tidestone, and the tear of elune. We will have to once again recover the 2 relics in the initial dungeons and raids of the expansion.

    Main Features:

    New Races:

    Ogres (Horde) - Tired of sitting on the sidelines and watching the war with the legion and other forces, the Ogres decide to re-ally up with their former orcish and horde comrades. Warrior, Mage, Warlock, Hunter, Priest, Death Knight, Monk, Shaman

    Naga (Alliance) - Outcasts of Azshara's armies, these Naga send emissaries to Kul'tiras to bargain with Jaina and forge an alliance with her. When Jaina calls out for the Alliance's help in safeguarding Kul'tiras from Queen Azshara's invading armies the renegade Naga are absorbed into the alliance due to their resistance against Queen Azshara. Warrior, Hunter, Shaman, Mage, Rogue, Death Knight, Monk, Druid

    Etheral (Neutral) - Traders, gamblers, and refugees. The homeworld of the Etherals was destroyed and they have taken a particular interest in Azeroth and the dealings with its races over the course of several years. An opportunistic union with either the horde or alliance will serve to bolster their ranks and gain prominence in the cosmos once again. The Etherals choose to forge strategic alliances for the pure sake of profit and glory. Warlock, Mage, Priest, Hunter, Warrior, Monk, Paladin

    New Race / Class Combinations:

    Horde:

    Tauren: Warlock, Mage
    Orc: Priest, Druid, Demon Hunter
    Undead: Paladin
    Goblin: Monk
    Troll: Demon Hunter

    Alliance:

    Human: Druid, Demon Hunter
    Draenei: Warlock
    Gnome: Paladin, Shaman, Demon Hunter
    Night Elf: Warlock, Paladin
    Worgen: Monk, Shaman

    New Continent:

    13 Zones
    15 New Creature Types
    9 Factions

    Main Azeroth
    3 New Zones at launch, more in patches (Kul'Tiras, Naz'jatar, Plunder Isle)

    New Quest Type:

    World Events - similar to world quests, world events are more organic and happen randomly within the zones you play through. You might be doing a world quest, and an event pops up nearby that is limited in time and after players complete the event, its gone until another event pops up. These are group events that you contribute to, and depending on your level of involvement in the event determines your reward on a Bronze, Silver, or Gold basis.

    New Game System:

    Path of the titans - similar progression system to artifact weapons, more details fleshed out at Blizzcon

    New PvP Game Mode:

    Free For All Death Match - Similar to the Gladiator Arena (building from Warlords), horde and alliance will enter this mode to get to a set kill count. Respawn timers are greatly reduced. There will be new maps for this game mode, (10, 20, and 30 player maps)

    New Player "Housing":

    Warships - customize your warship, recruit a crew, build your warship the way you want. Dress the living quarters in fancy furniture and lavish surroundings, or get grungy and gritty with pirate accents and holes in the wall, or anything in between!

    New Primary Profession:

    Carpentry - this will highly coincide with warships. There will be many other uses of the carpentry profession outside warships, and it is primarily meant to be a gold sink profession. Crafting fine wood and brass things for the warship is expensive!

    New Secondary Profession:

    Wood Gathering - Gather wood from all over Azeroth. There are several different types of wood to gather, oak, cherry, hickory, etc. New trees will be popping up all over Azeroth that can be gathered, similar to the wood mill in Warlords. This is the primary resource for the Carpentry profession.

    All gathering professions are now moved to Secondary Professions.

    More details at Blizzcon.

    Lolbye. I wonder how nice it is to be the biggest troll on this forum...... Do tell!

    You’ve got about as many “connections” to Blizzard as the North Korea people do to the outside world.

    Monks? How are they going to use Spinning Crane Kick, Blackout Kick, and Rising Sun Kick? They don't have legs, or feet... What are they going to do, tail slap people?
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

    Not sure how, but thats what was listed. Maybe a transformation of sorts to gain legs? Or even slap them with their tails?

    Wow, infracted? I thought the whole infractions for calling someone a troll died a few years ago, since it's said all the time. But yeah, keep this thread open though instead

    I hate new accounts popping and making "leak" threads as much as the next guy but at least it makes more sense to post a "leak" with a new account rather an old account with over 7k posts, would be harder to get caught.

    Yeah, im not sure i believe it either, but he did say that it was logical that if there is a full continent on the other side of Azeroth, it should be quite big compared to the other 2 main continents of Azeroth (Kalimdor, and Eastern Kingdoms)

    Maybe not all 13 zones will be playable right away? Similar to how there were a ton of zones that you were not able to go into during vanilla?

    As in, there’s no “the other side of Azeroth”. Have you put a map the Earth out flat? What’s on the other side of the Earth? /facepalm

    Taking the leak out with the trash tbh, not a grain of salt.
