    Higher effort than the one on Shadowlands where they just color-shifted Legion's logo.

    Finally guessed the expansion right for the first time since MoP.

    oh man, this leak give me a bit of hope, i don't know if i like to have hope

    I imagine Dragon isles as a breath of fresh air, like pandaria was, creating plots and having their own unique lore, who can be big and good

    i want something waaay distant to the current lore, every time they build up something with old lore as base it comes to be shit, entirely new continent would solve this

    about the guy leaking this pretty hard recently, i think this concept was already a thing, and was scrapped so bfa could come first as the "filler expansion"

    I like the Awakenings "leak" a lot more than Shadowlands, the name is retarded but the content sounds way more interesting. Being able to level 1-65 entirely in EK/Kalimdor would be fantastic, so would leveling zones being relevant at max level.

    Any particular reason why threads would have been deleted?

    As if Blizzard would ever give up on a gold sink.

    Well either I'm dumb and cant search for shit, or the OP deleted to make it more legit or blizzard going full deletion mode.

    Is there any reason why there wouldn't be a client type, or the build number could be that high? Not to try to force this to be true. Would client type show in a sandbox?

    That's what I'm thinking... Will have to see if this new one gets deleted.

    Yeah, I mean I'm not saying it's impossible. It just would be a departure from their past pattern of theming a new class around the new lore of the expansion. It could happen, it just makes it more unlikely in my eyes.

    Nope, build numbers have been global for all of WoW's history. If this build was from June 20th it would be around 30495. Client type missing could be a thing, but I haven't ever seen that so far. As for your edit, client type would show in a sandbox yeah.

    Maybe I'm slow, but I just realized that the MMOC text leak mentions the whole "Stormwind and Orgrimmar get fucked" thing which seems to be in line with Sylvanases plans.

    Of all the races and their customization options, I look forward to female tauren the most. There is so much to be added: feathers, beads, paint, new hairstyles, hell, new faces.

    They are so lacking while having so much potential.

    I've wanted to see Blizzard remove professions for a long time, and make classes out of them, because then you can have Engineering goodies on tap forever.

    Imagine having an Artisan class that you want to bring with you to that dungeon because they're the only one who can interact with the special resource seam at the end to give the party a shot at extra gear, but you have to four-man the dungeon because they're terrible in a fight.

    As for Tinker specifically, they could play it off as being more generic than Engineering. Imagine if the gnomes got their mechs and tools, goblins got shredders and alchemy, Blood Elves had their spirits sealed inside an Arcane Guardian and used magical reskins of things like a flamethrower, and Lightforged had their Warframes, artillery and the Light.

    I've always wanted to play a Wraithlord.

    i imagine the "roguelike" mechanic, as being able to team up with the enemy faction, it could be interesting.

    Yeah I'm calling bull on Awakenings. Two new gameplay modes, level squish, two continents revamped, a new zone half the forum is asking for, a new class half the forum is asking for and housing. Oh and the massive talent rework. This is too good to be legit.

    Nope, "roguelike" means "go up against progressingly more difficult enemies, deeper into the dungeons, until you die". And in fact, WoW already has that, kinda, with the Proving Grounds.

    Honestly I have a hard time believing Orgrimmar or Stormwind being attacked, not saying it couldn't happen just feels off. Horde and Alliance just made up. Also I'm like 70% sure 8.2.5 war story is gonna continue with Tyrande "breaking" from the alliance and attacking horde(Ion hinted it in 8.2 interview with this line - [...]Alliance don’t have that same division in their ranks just yet, and there isn’t that same natural point of choice.) Might not happen but im betting on it. From a lore standpoint I like shadowlands "leaked" story much better but from a gameplay Awakenings is so much better.

    Either way I think 8.2.5 story is gonna be a good indication where were heading in the future.

    So does FFXIV with Deep Dungeons.
