    Humans and other races aren't typically seen piloting mecha. That tends to be Goblin/Gnome territory, and they do it because they lack the physical strength of other races. Wouldn't make much sense for other races to do it (though I wouldn't be opposed to it).

    To clarify what I mean: I'm not saying it wouldn't be justifiable in 8.0, I'm saying that it simply isn't happening. Of course my information is direct from my own leak source, so nobody here has a reason to believe me, but it's a fact.

    Its supposedly a Tank/DPS/DPS class, with one spec being melee/ranged hybrid, and the other DPS spec being pure range. Bit disappointed that they didn't go for a healing spec.

    The Tinker class is not a legitimate leak. There is no Tinker class in 8.0. There are no new classes in 8.0.

    I'd also like to point out that according to you there's no new races either right?

    That would be pretty disappointing if true.

    Correct. Subraces though, which really just means more superficial customization of existing playable races.

    Could this be part of a transition event for the next expansion? Will we finally see what Jaina has been up to?

    Oh wait, no. I know what it is. You're a straight up noob that doesn't know shit. This has been the best expansion since WotLK. Only flop is the Legendary system.
    To be fair, the lore is shit, and I'm not a fan of the intergalactic nonsense with demonic spaceships, etc.

    Kul Tiras was the name of the island; Boralus was the capital, and I don't know of any lore that states that the entire island was a city.

    do you have any information beyond subraces that would be provable post reveal? you arent exactly the first person to suggest sub races as a replacement of an expansion feature

    anything new we havent seen ingame before? like new base animations to differentiate them, new voice overs, high elves or half elves with new models, upright orcs perhaps? elven undead.

    atleast give some sort of details if you want to pull an i called it

    It is a naval themed expac. Boats are a real thing and a central focus of the content, including naval combat.

    Tinker class is NOPE, playable Naga is NOPE.

    Playable subraces such as Nightfallen are not mentioned in the leak but are definitely happening.

    That seems like a pretty huge stretch.

    I mean that's what, a couple brown skin colors for orcs? A darker grey skintone for dwarves and a couple with tattoos. An antler horn option for tauren and maybe a taunka hair option or two? Nightborne options for Night Elves would be neat, but I can't really see that happening, since Tyrande doesn't seem to like them all that much, and they've just retaken their home.

    2 races, 1 class, 2 races, 1 class and one race, updated race models, 1 class, ...some recolor and hair/accessory options?

    I'm not sure I buy that. Race/Class additions are a major part of every expansion, even Warlords, the expansion many would argue is the least amount of content, still put effort into that sector.

    When your thrones run red with betrayal... when your holy places burn and the shattered mask hangs above your hearth... only then you will know. And it will be too late.

    But it could also be that by "alliance" they mean the current status, where alliance and horde work together once again...
    So it is either Jaina or Sylvanas who "planted these seeds".

    I mean; we still have no idea what Sylvanas has given to Helya back in Stormheim...
    If this is true, then it's obviously Sylvanas, maybe Moira. Jaina hates the horde, but she has no reason to do anything against the alliance.

    We already discussed Tinkers pretty much so no comment on them here.

    But Naga? Come on. Even when they give Naga the option to transform back to Elves (which would be horrible lore-wise) there are still massive issues with equip and clipping. Naga can't wear any of the "old" armor as their body doesn't fit any of the usual slots (no feet, no trousers, no chest, no shoulders, no gloves, no head piece).



    With all their fins it's impossible to design equip for them. So that would require that Naga are always Elves and that's not going to happen. Naga as a race is pretty impossible.

    Nothing a remodelling wouldn't solve. See Worgen for example.

    I just hope so much that we don't get any underwater content, or at most very little of it (maybe 1-2 fights in total).

    I really don't enjoy playing underwater.

    At no times Worgen had such excessive models. They need to cut off every fin, give them some kind of legs and make them more "human" - well, why then Naga? They're entirely different from the usual races we've got and it doesn't make any sense to give us them as a playable race. Blizzard can't even fix clipping of haircuts and robes / shoulders / head pieces and now they should give us the Naga as a playable race? No thanks.
