    Relax people, this is just some classic fan getting his jollies waiting for classic to launch. If you read the thing it's literally straight out of the classic fan talking points:

    No one here plays the game.
    No one here talks to eachother.
    No one here takes pride in their work.
    No one here remembers the game before Cata.

    ESO's leveling system is FAR better then WoW's tbf. Faction merge would help queue times.

    With your WoD example, I guess most expansions past probably Cataclysm have come out of the blue (I mean people speculate but I'm talking direct tie-ins like WoD to Legion).

    I'll be a bit surprised if they did go resurrect from old popular characters, but then some people were calling Legion a rehash TBC just cuz of Burning Legion stuff.

    But yeah I just find it hard to pick up on any actual tie in like WoD -> Legion did because it seems like the story can go any number of places. There's still the whole deal with Wrathion for instance.

    I don't think we'll go to another planet though (K'areesh). I would just be surprised is all, feels like there's so much happening on Azeroth atm.
    Well guess you have a point, Pandaland was out of nowhere and only Legion had a build up from the legendary questline and WoD last patch. About Azeroth, besides the world there isn't anything else happening, at best we have Bolvar pulling his plan in action and Azerite element is probably forgotton next expansion with being render useless because Azeroth is fulll healed. Likely we go to the shadowlands before K'areesh because I have the feeling the planet will be like a mix of Draenor with Argus to serve as the void expansion(you know, blizzard will not exhaust the playerbase with the same scenagraphy)

    Someone that used that exact same syntax and word choice had a pre-BfA leak that was supposed to include 8.2 content was wildly false, including a leak about 9.0 that was very different.

    Also, the information the leaker provides about the inner workings of Blizzard we know to be demonstrably false. I can't imagine trying to develop games with 0 verbal communication.

    Yes, but lore wise, they stayed druids. They didn't suddenly morph into an entirely new class.

    Thinking about it though... the idea is losing me cause with all the resources going for new models and animations, might as well do it justice and design it's own class.
    Oh, I understood. Its just that in lore, nothing changes. Their animations, forms, nothing. They remain the same. Like the druids of Ysera did. They are just those sworn to protect and fight for the dragons.

    Still they aren't going to make you reroll your druid, just to get some fire effects. That sounds like a big non-starter from the Blizz point of view.

    Also we are on the regular class rotation, Tinkerer isn't a hero class if it exists. You'd start at level 1.
    Why not? I thought back in WotLK they contemplated it with DK? Then again I was like 17 and can't remember that much back then

    So I guess the solution here is simple - we'll murder everyone.

    How can you make up a totally new race out of nowhere when we still have iconic Horde races missing from the faction?

    Like: Ogres, Forest Trolls, Mok'Nathal, San'layn, Hozen and Taunka.

    All of these races have background story and are part of the Horde.
    Yet here comes a boar creature out of nowhere… good thing this is fake.
    First 3 yes. Second 3 NO WAY!

    Ogres, big strong tall forest trolls (WC2) and Mok'Nathal ftw.
    Content drought is a combination of catchup mechanics and no new content.

    And they're effectively Druids with some extra benefits for being BFFs with the Green Flight. Dragonsworn would work better as the next Artifact incarnation than as a class.

    They'd botch it entirely. Because WoW is a 2004 action bar MMO, not ESO.
    WoW: Wyrmrest Accord - Alliance
    Classic:
    FFXIV: Crystal Datacenter (Balmung & Mateus servers)

    Something about this rings true, to me.

    Having said that... I'm not suggesting that's a good thing (save for seeing Wrathion; that dude is always welcome to crash the party).

    This sounds like a major fucking mess, which is honestly how I would describe BFA; a fucking mess. It doesn't feel like there's any clear vision for the game anymore, and they're just winging-in from one patch to the next. Allied Races, for example, I think have had an overtly negative impact on the game, which is a shame because some of them do at least *look* cool (Dark Iron Dwarves are the only one that feels congruent with the rest of the game).

    I dunno. If this post is true -- and I suspect it is, although I've no evidence to support one way or the other -- it just seems like a natural extension of the trainwreck that is BFA.

    Honestly, I think they need to get some fresh blood in there to work on the next expansion. The game just doesn't feel like it's being made by people who truly *LOVE* Warcraft anymore. Maybe they love "the Horde", or they're hellbent on pushing "female empowerment" on players at every turn, but it just doesn't feel like there's a cohesive vision behind WoW anymore.

    EDIT: The one positive I see in the supposed "leak", is the idea of removing faction barriers to some degree. I think the player-base has dwindled low enough it might be mandatory now, but regardless, I think it would be one of the few changes that could potentially be exciting.
