    If a death themed expansion is coming I’d assume that’s where we’ll see Helya. I’m really not sure what we’ll get but it seems like an undead/death expansion is being hinted at all over the place. Either that or the Void, who knows. Regardless, when/if we get that death expansion that’s probably when we’ll see Helya again.

    I’m honestly not even sure what they’re doing with the Black dragon scale and Wrathion. They’re being shown and hinted at but again not much has come of it outside of little hints or things like Black talon bodyguards being seen in certain places. I don’t really think we’ll see much of these storylines in BfA, it seems like they’re just planting the seeds for later.

    So, Blizzard does remember Helya and has seeded her return already.
    Cool. But do they remember that bit with her and Sylvanas?

    Seems there's a lot of Dragon stuff going on along with Death(At least with some of the seeds in Island Expeds and well 8.2 sorta has it to).

    Death or Dragons, I'm ok with.(Just don't..pull a Cata ending again even if I kinda enjoyed the ending minus the depowering).

    I think they seeded that to pay-off in BfA, so yes.

    I think she would refrain from attacking the Reds because the Knights of the Ebon Blade already did that and she doesn't like the sloppy seconds from other Lich King wannabes.

    They should tint the Aszuna ruins greener or add some Moss/ seaweed.

    So...we're getting more armor sets in this patch right? Hopefully the benthic sets are unique like the argus sets.

    If they had the look of the Raid Gear, it would be kinda weird tbh. Also hopefully they will add Mechagon Armor.

    Argus had the lightforged sets, which were unique (plus the green fel set that was a random drop). We already don't have any warfront armor in 8.2, and the gear we currently have is disappointing.

    My sentiment exactly.

    It needs to look as if it's been submerged for thousands of years, not as if the buildings were picked up from Azsuna and plonked onto Nazjatar. :d

    With Warfront they will maybe just take the Style of the highest PVP Seasons 3 Sets. Even a resused Gladiator Set 1 would count as excuse.

    But for Nazjatar Armor and Mechagon I hope they will get their own models. Mechagon currently just uses Kul Tiras Mythic Armor and this would be pretty boring.

    They should receive their own armor (Nazjatar and Mechagon). The purchasable Azerite gear from Vendors right now, is that gear from the Dungeons or the Zones (or both)?

    I would think Naz and Mecha would have their own "zone armor" so to speak.

    As they are intended for catchup/casual gameplay, that doesn't really matter much, minmaxing is for progress raiding. Despite all stat varying stat weights, itemLevel should trump in most cases, and only Haste has a real possibility to alter gameplay/rotations slightly.

    Possibly, but you might be thinking of Nythendra and Emeriss.
    I certainly immediately heard Nythendra's "...is a disease!" when I read your comment, but I'm currently farming her for the recolor of the HC Mage Shoulders, so...

    More hinting towards a Dragon Isles xpac in 9.0
    I really can't imagine what bs they have to pull of their hats to make a Dragon Isles expansion. Something like Pandaria or AU Draenor (Pandaria was great, AU Draenor not so much) but I doubt they can do it. At least they won't ruin established lore with it so... could be exciting. I'd still prefer a Black Empire expansion a la Lotro's Moria (which was amazing).

    Blizzcon might be half a year away but it can't come soon enough (and with it the announcement of the next expansion). With MAUs being at an all time low it's obvious they have to do something big for xpac 8 to actually turn around the steady downfall of WoW. And this means doing something for new players, too (level squish and/or world revamp).

    Wrathion (or any of other dozen dragons we personally know) comes up and asks us to go? Seems pretty simple.

    I think you're reading way to much into the MAUs as well.

    WoW MAUs are likely not a big factor. Out of 30 mil, WoW's share is probably something like 2, and the main bulk of 30 is OV+HS+HOTS (yeah, HOTS got closed, the activity dropped, but just to remind - there were estimates before that, and according to them, HOTS made more money for Blizzard than HS, counting the overall - so I guess that even half a year after the close HOTS has more MAUs than WoW does).

    WoW MAUs are the juiciest though.

    Too much? They're worse with Overwatch than they were some years back without Overwatch. And Overwatch was Blizzard's "star" for the last years. That actually means something. And that WoW is on the low end when it comes to subs should be quite obvious, too. Low MAUs musn't be bad when Blizzard reacts to the situation appropriately (e.g. stepping up their game like they did after WoD).

    Regarding Dragon Isles... what would be the zones? The continent? Where is it? *POOOOF* and it's just right next to Broken Isles and Kul Tiras? Where has it been the last years? Another island like content yeah that's something we really need. You know something that could work imho? A continent that's NOT on the surface of Azeroth, meaning it's 1) flying / floating, 2) underwater or 3) cave like. I don't want another universe/planet so when it comes to Dragon Isles I'd like it to be a floating continent.

    The next expansion could have several themes and minor "continents", Black Empire/Nyarlotha being 1-2 zones, the Dragon Isles being another 1-2 (or more mini island zones loosely together) plus something else.
    Kinda "South Seas" overall plus Void/OG assaults, but distinctive enough from Zandalar/KT.

    I kinda liked the "inserted into the established world" idea of Cataclysm, this could be a different implementation.

  19. #6799
    Whatever the next expansion ends up having, please let's have no splits. No class / spec splits (like in Legion with the class halls / artifact line). No faction splits (like in BFA with two land masses and wildly separate quests). It's OK to have some flavor, but limit that flavor to maybe 10% of the total.

    You could say that about every "continent" added to Azeroth after Classic, even for Outland, we knew it existed, we just couldn't go there yet.

    Ingame maps as of now are not complete, they only show what's available.

    We "know" the Dragon Isles, Nyarlotha and other islands exist in the South Seas, but they aren't represented in the current game yet.
