    Wouldn't that make them on par with Druids, since they also have 4 specs?
    I could see Kyrian for tanking, Venthyr for dps (spellcasting?) , Necrolords for physical dps/ maybe also a 'pet spec?' (they'd have an undead pet), and Night Fae for healing. Not sure if they'd make it a Hero class, maybe no because we have DKs?

    Yeah this is truth. Whoever thinks BFA is worse than WoD is not understanding just how bad it got for the WoW dev team.

    That shows a bit of their status at the time, before Legion was out.

    I highly doubt they are making a class, but if they did, it would probably be the dark ranger.

    The recent quest in Tirisfal that had Calia take a bunch of rangers with her could easily be the catalyst for that. The only reason I thought that could be the case in this super unlikely scenario is there's a blood elf amongst the group who leaves with Calia too.

    I'm more inclined to say they were just setting up new customization options for Belf/Nelf, though.

    Calia in Tirisfal with dark rangers? What quest is this?

    I do think there is something we don't know about. Doubt its a class though.

    It’s got to be connected to the covenants in some way

    I suspect weapon models

    I am worried about the quality of Shadowlands tbh. Sure they can get it done, but there wont be nearly enough opportunities for feedback from other devs.

Creating something lije that is just not feasible on the fly.
    What if the reason why we saw barely anything at BlizzCon is because they were trying to hide whatever would be used with the new class

    What if it isn’t a decision that they just now made but a decision that they’ve been working around since the announcement and they want to ring it out as a big deal and a big surprise and totally fuck us with it on April Fools’ Day jess for it to turn out to be real

    This.

    If Blizzard announces a new class just now it's solely because Shadowlands pre-orders have been abysmal and they needed to create something within a few months to salvage Shadowlands overall. Nobody in their right minds would think they were working on a class for more than a few months and then not reveal it during the Blizzcon announcement.

    We're not going to get Tinkers anyway, purely because they blew their wad on that with Mechagon, and it's "too late to be thematically appropriate now."

    Same could be true of a dragon-inspired class and all the dragon empowerments the HoA has had, although a trip to the Dragon Isles might change that.

    Maybe they messed everything with level squish

    I doubt that. I think 8.3s poor reception to core systems of Shadowlands made them do a 180 in regards of Torghast and "Corruption 2.0" so they had to go back to the drawing board.

    What makes you think that ? Especially since corruption 2.0 was never mentioned for Shadowlands , Corruption was just a test of what they can do with items without TF/WF which was a good test to know what works and what doesn't

    Corruption makes sense in regards of a new item progression system. It fits the Shadowlands, e.g. the longer you stay in one zone the more affected you get by that. Maybe each zone has a specific kind of corruption type. Or corruption is the progression system going on in Torghast. The higher you climb the stronger you get but with downsides. Most "final patch game mechanics" made a return sooner or later as the final patch is a testing ground for new stuff. Crucible was later part Azerite gear part Essences and Soulbinds look too much like Crucible 2.0 as well. In one way or another corruption was planned to make a comeback.

    Horrific Visions was a test for Torghast and Corruption a test for whatever RNG Shadowlands will have. They said that during blizzcon. HV were received okay. Corruption split the community right in half, so it makes sense that they iterate on the ideas and change things. Same with Covenant Abilities, those were pretty hated on during Blizzcon and afer the reveal of the DK abilities. So they had to iterate on that aswell, this is speculation, sure, but it fits right into the delayed Alpha. COVID-19 might be a factor, but nowhere near as big as people think. They try to work in a lot of Feedback from 8.3 and Blizzcon.

    I would say Corruption 2.0 could just be the craftable Legendaries (slapping corruption effects on an item and bam) but who knows tbh. When alpha drops next week we will know for sure.
