    Genn could attack Gallywix's palace, but that's to close to Orgrimmar to be realistically defensible once taken. On the other hand, Blizz could shake up the "story" of Warfronts to not be a cycle of conquests, which can't be canon anyway, but an assault from the Alliance, with the Horde pushing back, aiming to destroy their staging point to break the assault.
    The reason for this attack is obvious, taking out Gallywix would remove the only racial leader with unwavering support for Sylvanas, strengthening the rebellion (the Mag'har will eventually side with the Azeroth Orcs, when Eitrigg stands up to Sylvanas and Saurfang returns) and also simply revenge for the presumed death of Mekkatorque.
    The impeachment killing of Gallywix could happen even in the Horde version, as the main Horde force takes the Alliance base, an assassin commando slips into the palace and offs him.
    Gazlowe is basically fully Horde-aligned by now, he could become the new leader, or established Bilgewater characters become at least Cartel Leader. Megs Dreadshredder and Sassy Hardwrench have often been speculated as successors (if the right wing of the playerbase can handle another female leader taking over from a male)

    There was a recent interview (sorry, forgot which one) in which they said that there would be more warfronts ahead.

    I'd love to see a Myst Isles warfront, where you have draenei and lightforged securing the isles long enough for refugees to escape while the Horde invasion is led by the mag'har plus some other race (trolls? Or maybe ogres?), in a nod to the events of both Draenors.

    Another possible one is a warfront in Quel'thalas, with the Alliance invasion, led by void and high elves, being resisted by blood elves and nightborne.

    These could tie-in with my theory that Sylvanas plans to do something nasty with the Sunwell. She sends Lor'themar to Nazjatar to keep him out of the way, attacks Myst Isles to force the Alliance and Horde to focus there, then moves to Quel'thalas. The Alliance elves learn of her presence in the north, and push for an invasion to end the war. She uses the distraction to do her stuff.

    The Myst Isles warfront could come out in 8.2.5, while the final one comes in 8.3.

    ----------------

    Failing that, I think a tauren + troll vs. dwarf + gnome warfront in the Barrens would be really cool, but the story is moving away from that direction.

    Biggest battle since the Second War they said. So I'm kinda expecting it to be the invasion of Quel'Thalas or the northern Barrens.

    What's this then?

    And Season 3 PvP gear is naga/sea themed.

    Agree on principle, although skinny Kul Tirans should still not be just an option for KTs. They already are a completely new rig, unique for an Allied Race. Granted, they would share that rig with the speculated Mok'nathal AR.


    I'd prefer it we would get body shape etc. options/sliders for all characters instead.
    I'd have nothing against Stormwind Humans and Kul Tirans sharing options in that case, so that people can play their 'regular' human as a Kul Tiran.

    They need to fill in gear since there's no warfront now. Doesn't mean there won't be more ahead.
    8.2 PvP gear is the same as raid gear, but recolored (combatant gear seems to be based on questing gear for Nazjatar).

    I would really love a Warfront on the Isles, could also be split between the two. Alliance starting with Exodar on Azure and Horde rushes from the Bloodmyst Isle.

    Also if looked on some maps displayed around war tables we can see an arrow pointing from Ashenvale to the Myst Isles.

    On the flavour text of some missions available on the mission tables, it is said the Horde is trying to push towards the draenei isles.

    Yeah read about it on WoWhead, hopefully with the mission table rework/additions they alter the missions in such a way, that they are reliable.

    theres literally a 0% chance of any more warfronts. 8.2's warfront will be heroic arathi and 8.3's heroic darkshore

    they gave up on warfronts before they even released 8.0. everyone who playtested arathi hated it and they gave up on making the pvp version.

    the second warfront would have been barrens. this is obvious because they updated a ton of quillboar stuff in bfa and im gonna tell you a secret: its not because there was deep quillboar lore in kul tiras that had to be told.

    but warfronts were so badly recieved they had to cut down on them. the original plan was probably along these lines: arathi, barrens, another ek warfront, darkshore. deciding that they were only going to make one more (and by doing so, fulfil the promise of "warfronts") they went with darkshore because there's already been a lot of barrens content and people wanted to see the night elf story after the war of thorns.

    darkshore is completely half-assed, its the same exact scenario for both sides which means it could never work for pvp, and theres only 1 pair of commanders. if you ever wondered why they went through with the forsaken night elves story that everyone thought was stupid and ruined both the night elves and forsaken, its because they had already decided they wanted to use the same boss for both factions to save time and effort so they needed an undead warden no matter the cost.

    the smoking gun here is that fucking kodo mount. what is that doing in darkshore? it belongs in the barrens warfront but since they scrapped it they brought the kodo mount over

    anyway there are no new warfronts coming ever again. storywise they dont make sense anyway since 8.2 is the tipping point where we all start to make friends again.

    8.2 warfront = heroic arathi
    8.3 warfront = heroic darkshore

    expect them to still be trivially easy despite the new features so people can still get their free heroic raid ilvl gear

    theres also the matter of the datamined cutscene where tyrande declares victory in darkshore. people were wondering why it never showed up even though they had been updating it throughout the ptr. well now that we understand all of the above to be true, we know it will be in 8.3 after the darkshore heroic warfront

    good decision by blizz tbh warfronts are shit.

    The Kodo is an easter egg to the Cinematic, no smoking gun or anything else.

    Also:"There will be additional warfronts in Battle for Azeroth, and the rewards to the existing one will likely be tuned and changed. We’ll also see lore characters continue to show up in these encounters. “Having characters in the encounters build connections with enemies, which can be as important as building relationships with allies.” " -Kevin Martens at: https://www.polygon.com/platform/amp...game-patch-8-2

    No 100% but 0%, nopes.

    you are an idiot. you are not quoting kevin martens, you are quoting cass marshall, the writer of the article. she misinterpreted what he said. nowhere in the interview does he imply there will be new warfronts.

    the kodo is there from the cutscene yes, but the reason there is a kodo model at all is because there was a barrens warfront that never came to fruition

    when 8.3 is announced with heroic darkshore as the warfront and there are no more new warfronts in bfa, i will expect your apology via pm.

    *sigh* And where are your sources or anything? Darkshore HC is coming, not depending on a rude little brat. All hail to Silag the secret genius of WoW Development.

    I love it when people call other people idiots and yet, they use the the words "literally a 0% chance" talking about something that can't be properly justified and proven with facts at the moment. It always makes my day.

    It's always especially hilarious to confront them with it when the thing they said would NEVER EVER HAPPEN 0% CHANCE, actually happens. The mentale gymnastics and excuses they go trough make it even sweeter.

    At least today I learned that I should never trust an intervie ever again, since they all are interpretations of answers, not the answer given by the questioned.

    I enjoyed the extra gold it was giving during Legion. Now I'm poor once again, yet Blizzard keeps increasing the prices of mounts and such. I'm trying to up my AH game with professions, but the market on my server has been kind of broken since the launch BfA.

    I do hope we see the Couatl in World of Warcraft...
    Maybe those shark flying things are them, and wonder if the boldest of races rode and tamed them for flying mounts...
    For the Horde!
