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.

    in Legion when we got Illidan teaser, it was Break glass in case of emergency (sub loss).

    I guess this will be the second call for emergency.

    Nothing ever said he was dead and gone from the helmet. Just that Arthas defeated Ner'zhul in that dream, along with his human side. But it was already stated that his human side prevented him from unleashing the scourges full might. So it wasn't completely gone, even when you kill him you see him turn back into normal Arthas. So yes, Ner'zhul is still somewhere.

    Am I missing something? This pic has been around for days... Is there an actual new screenshot of it being on the store? if not, fake.

    I don't suppose you're familiar with the term "draft?" It's possible that's not the finished version of the image or text

    It's an image hosted on an official Blizzard website.

    They did the same with Shalla'tor in the Legion and death of Saurfang cinematics (Shalla'tor has a blue glow while Ellemayne has a red one, but both are red in every cinematic they're in).

    God I hope the blue eyes don't have anything to do with Ner'zhul.

    Well damn the art is legit. Only question now is if it's expansion related or if it's just new Lich King art much like the Onxyia art that was used to find this.

    Well I guess this pretty much confirms Bolvar is back. It doesn't confirm Shadowlands though at all.

    That artwork under the Shadowlands logo has already been proven fake with a reverse image search: so that logo is likely also fake, and the expansion name.

    HOWEVER

    whatever this next expansion is. It has 100% confirmed, got Bolvar out of his chair and with a new mace.

    What if blizz saw the fake picture and uploaded it to their server just to screw with the leakers. That wouls be amazing.

    I don't believe this is accurate, there was a screenshot of a reverse image search floating around but that was fake.

    But wasnt this shown on reddit as fake, as the original has orange eyes?

    Lich King is just a title. There's no entity of it. Ner'zhul, Arthas. Bolvar are all different entities that had the mantle. Not some merging of minds but one in control.

    Oh, Marlam, it's you.

    Okay I guess I'll take your word for it. Are you sure the reverse image search was faked? that seems strange for someone to fake that.

    It would, but the quality of the new image is quite a step up. Looks solid to me.
