    Maybe Bastion is in place of ICC

    I don't know about that. It practically confirms that the cities in the clouds to the left of Bastion in the original art are in fact Bastion itself, and not glimpses into other dimensions.

    Also look at the Outlands-type crack running through the ground below the ghost river.

    or you could satisfy all of them by doing both because they have done both in the past

    I feel like people forget that the biggest overhaul we have ever had in terms of class gameplay was in legion where they also introduced a new class

    Do you seriously think it's not going to be called Shadowlands?
    Did I say it wasn't going to be called shadowlands?

    I was literally the first person to point out that those pamphlets are what the leak was in the style of. All I'm saying is that it isn't decisive proof of anything.

    Earlier today we talked about the idea that Bastion is the ICC of the Shadowlands. And the expansion was on the alternate "Shadowlands Northrend."

    I can definitely see this happening.

    It looks VERY similar to ICC if you look at it closely

    I agree. Legion (Mac'aree aside) and BFA were far too safe stylistically.

    Let's get something crazy in here.

    They field questions every year. Last year's red shirt guy got to ask his Diablo question because he lied about what he was going to ask.

    No they literally confirm nothing because they're fake

    It doesn't confirm anything, because somebody just took the Bastion image and drew some extra parts. Likely the OP of that 4chan thread.

    Not much extra either. Maybe a small spire or two, and the rest is just terrain extension.

    Might sound crazy but I wouldn't mind "WoD Northrend" that much at all as a setting. Think it could look amazing. And ironically enough, had WoD been a proper full expansion with three raid tiers, it may have been my favorite expansion ever.

    I don't think that's customer service. Unless somebody wants to ask questions about renewing or cancelling subs.

    I want them to use flying as a design tool instead of treated like a hindrance

    if we are going back to northrend or dealing with the lich King again let's do stuff like storm peaks

    let's take flying and do something fun with it let's have the world quest where you have to get into a race like they did in mists of pandaria that was fun I enjoyed it


    also by the way I just finished my run of Mukesh on bolts for the week and I managed to snag the mount so yay me

    The great gates of Bastion do look like the ICC gates. That would be clever of Blizz, albeit look pretty lazy if they look really similar.

    I'm sure the lore explanation would be "lol the Lich King was inspired by them" or something.

    I think they need to be willing to blow up zone borders, and that means move mountains, to make it not feel like just a revamp.

    If they're willing to do that, though, I could see it going well.
