    Even though I'm a giant fan of the Tortollans and truly hope Tottle is one I have no idea what this profile pic stuff is about.

    The different flag could imply they would have a different starting zone or further differing customization... Maybe? I don't know.

    I'm mostly refering to the character background entries, I had heard nothing about that before.

    There's already been a couple of those this time round. I think we wont have a same type of leak twice in a row. This seems like another datamining leak year like MoP.

    Yeah, I've been brushing that up to copy paste but there's a small conflict in that as the displayID's referenced in the VoidElf entry refer to Blood Elf models but the backgrounds refer to Night Elf backgrounds. Hmmph.

I do think the expansion will have something to do with all of these things but I'm also expecting a curveball from Blizzard with a feature that no one saw coming.
    Yeah those are not the same. But I like it so if this were true i would be happy (although I still doubt subraces could work in wow, if they did it would be awesome).

The Orcs were the ones who first started attacking the Humans in Kalimdor, not the other way around.

    It was only much later, after Jaina and her forces had made peace, that her father Admiral Proudmoore (an old bigot from the First and Second Wars) showed up and claimed that the Orcs were monsters and had to be hunted down. Even then, Jaina helped Thrall and Rexxar kill her own father to shut things down and bring it all back under her control, and then there was actual peace between Orcs and Humans in Kalimdor for several years, before outside plots riled things up again between them.

    So... yeah, you are COMPLETELY wrong about this.
    You are... absolutely right about this. I had completely messed up the order of events and swapped Terenas Menethil for Daelin Proudmoore in my mind. When he refused to imprison his own subjects to protect them from the plague I somehow misremembered him as sending his forces out after Thrall and the Orcs. In fact, his forces only went after the Orcish Uprising in Strahnbrad before going off to find out about the plague.

    This is me, acknowledging I was 100% wrong. It'll happen from time to time.

    You didn't actually read the article then. The argument is that naga, tuskarr, etc. would *not* be playable subraces but the legion races in the DB would be, based on their reference to a character select screen, as has been noted by other people in this thread.

    Interestingly, none of the fake leaks ever seem to present with the thing I -REALLY- want.

    But I will likely be happy with whatever feature they present regardless.

  12. #19852
    Ian brought it up in his article, but it was something I noticed odd last night that I feel needed reiterating. There is no Nightbourne native ID that can equip armor or access the barbershop/customization features. NONE of the Nightbourne NPCs in the game actually use the Nightbourne entry in chrraces, which is very interesting.

    Could always be leftovers from an original implemntation of the Nightbourne, and these four ""sub-races"" might have customization options, select screen files and stuff, as Marliam said, from copy pasting in a different way than they did back in Vanilla, BC and Wrath.

    Still Forests Trolls and Ice Trolls have "TUSKS" noted as their extra customization option, from copy and pasting the trolls, but does not have entries or options beyond that.

    Fair enough, memory mistakes happen! Sorry if I came off as confrontational.

    Could use the blood elf / high elf base skeleton but function as a night elf in gameplay?

    That may annoy the PVP devs, though. Silhouettes and so forth.

    Or it's mostly placeholder for now, we really can't tell at this point. It might have just accidentally slipped in when they shipped Lightforged Draenei, which did get a character model etc. We'll have to wait and see.

    Wonder if the riddle guy is someone in Blizzard. We know they read this thread. Some people over there love their secrets too...

    I can't make heads or tails of it. Other than Note 11 is Darion. Kel'thuzad asks Darion who he loves at the end of the Ashbringer comic when he becomes a DK and he says no one.

    All I want is 6v6 objective based PvP, aka smaller RBG on smaller maps. They teased it in blizzcon 2015(I think it was 15?) by making the arena players play EU vs US 6v6 RBGs(Where they found out the current maps were waaaaay too big for 6v6), they've teased it with the brawl. 2+ years later they've obviously completed it and made maps for it right, that's why we haven't gotten a BG map in ages right???

    I was only implying it's kind of too late to be worrying about that.

    Funny thing though, I always found human males and orc females had a similar frame... But that's just me.
