BlizzCon 2019 - Gear Store Bolvar Leak
Blink Shopping is now live! With it came this piece of Bolvar art, hosted on the Gear Store. It is very likely there is a Bolvar art print that is hidden until the announcement. Thanks to Miquelisme for letting us know and Sebid for the high res version!

This doesn't confirm the Shadowlands name or ad leak.

    The Lich King is pretty noticeable for any faction. Bolvar is no more
    Yes... and no. The Lich King was the Lich King but he was also the well known Arthas with his well known background and evolution.

    Bolvar, at least horde side, is a mister noone. He will probably become more known if he’ll be one of the main actors of next expansion, but it’s not a “omg Bolvar! Shut up and take my yearly renewal now!” character.

    People going to Blizzcon can order items from the store starting yesterday, and pick them up starting Thursday in Anaheim.

    Sadly no. In fact when you check out there is a box you have to acknowledge that says you understand these items can only be picked up in person at Blizzcon.

    Nothing gets me more excited for more WoW like the beloved character BOLVAR. The man is a veritable who’s who among hardcore Warcraft fans with his rich backstory and landmark presence.

    Ok, back in reality goddamn Warcraft has NOTHING left.

    Where are the ones claiming this was fake again? Because of the eyes? Even though that reason had literally no leg to stand on for the sole reason that MANY THINGS COULD HAVE CAUSED HIS EYES TO CHANGE THAT WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT. What about the reverse image folks? I'm jumping the gun early but this is one of the reasons why I believed in this picture. The effort put into it was next level compared to literally every other leak we have seen. Any post by someone with just text about a leak is garbage. Any post that changes the WoW logo to their narrative is pretty garbage. However a cinematic level picture of Lich King Bolvar? Show me a fake leak that has been anywhere close to this level. You can't but they don't exist.

    I'm excited for this cinematic. I really hope it is something special. Lich King is one of my favorite fantasy characters so anything with him gets me feeling weak at the knees with butterflies in my stomach xD

    Yeah but on the Northrend loading screen he is already with red eyes. Guess we will see. Could be the inner conflict or something.. I wish it was just an intentionally leaked image to hype and confuse, because the difference in color bothers me

    Well. I hope it's intended due to lore implications. I rarely just think "it's a mistake" because then we can speculate against everything. Could be the case of course. And when he took over lich king / Arthas were defeated and most likely in a weakened state which means he had more control of it. It's also a teaser image of the next expac which indicates there are more thought out into the image than a loading screen for example.

    If it's a mistake I feel for them this blizzcon cause it looks like it's from a cinematic. And rerender it so close to blizzcon could be tight.

    Or Bolvar is no longer in control. Not really a hard concept to grasp.

    It's not confirmed, but it looks pretty damn likely, yeah.

    Dude, the Lich king is the Lich King. And that alone is enough to interest manyyyyy people.

    No I literally couldn't figure out that something happens in the story in the future, thank you for telling me, if you notice I posted that before the image was essentially confirmed to be true (though who knows for sure) so most of us, me included, assumed it was fake, a very good fake but fake nonetheless

    Not so sure. Arthas was interesting as LK because he was Arthas before being the LK.

    Bolvar has no background (not for the horde at least).

    That Bastion thing does seem to line up with the new store mounts, we have Sylvanas on the loose, there are new DK options, Bolvar is linked both to Death and to the Dragons, Wrathion is back... I guess the expansion will be Shadowlands and Dragon Isles both.

    Has anyone else noticed that Blizzard hasn't announced their closing night activities yet for Blizzcon? No announcement of bands or DJ's.

    I heard they're going to bring in a sampling of hong kong protesters and let everyone watch a bunch of Chinese officials brutally beat the shit out of them with nightsticks on stage.

    It could mean hes no longer in control and has become evil like arthas was.
