    A death expansion would be perfect for that.


    We know so much about spirit, but almost nothing about decay.
    spirit come from life, decay comes from death

    if the chronicles pic says anything, spirit come from the "fusion" or interaction of light and life, and decay come from the interaction of death and shadow/void

    My theory is that the theme of the expansion is a closely guarded secret, devs working on it only see either a small segment pertaining to their exact line of work, and the people who do know are in short supply, and furthermore under an extremely heavy NDA.

    Most Blizz employees probably only learn what the expansion is fully about either after several years of loyal service, or extremely close to Blizzcon, explaining the usual leak coming only a few hours before.


    Beyond that though, an NDA with a company like Blizzard is serious business. And when they also work for them and are likely planning to keep working for them, or at least in the same line of work there is little to gain from breaking it.
    At best they get to gather internet street cred for a few hours before everyone knows. At worst they lose their job, and all future possibilkities for a similar job with other game companies. Who afterall are going to hire an employee who is known to have willingly broken an NDA.

    im just surprised, someone hasn't datamined SOMETHING like the title or anything, im sure there are people hard at work trying to find anything on it, years past you we have seen blizz trademark names and now that is out.

    - - - Updated - - -

    also, old gods, can anyone explain to me how we truly killed any of them if there entire bodies span across the planet, it just doesn't make sense to me? n zoth is a continent in size but we shoot a lazer at one part of him and hes dead? same with yogg and the cthun, I cant believe that we kill creatures 10000x the size of our chars with swords and daggers.

    Some leaks are simply about some third party messing up and revealing something they shouldnt have. This year that was for Diablo 4, not WoW.

    Beyond that, we doung the encrypted Allied race DKs, which is perfectly in line with what we usually find before Blizzcon.
    The problem this year is that no matter where we go the name wouldnt tell us much. If we go to a Revamped Northrend or revamped EK/Kalimdor then the name is just going to be from a place we already know. Conversely if we go to the Dragon isles then a name is pointless since we don't know the names of anything on that island.

    Last 2 expansion we got a Suramar cloak hinting at Suramar in Legion and a Kul Tiras robe hinting at Kul Tiras in BfA.

    its simple, its because their bodies DON'T span across the planet

    n zoth is a continent in size but we shoot a lazer at one part of him and hes dead?
    he is not continent size, nowhere is said thing kind of thing

    I cant believe that we kill creatures 10000x the size of our chars with swords and daggers.
    maybe we can't, even when we killed titans whoa are massive, but old gods are not like that.

    never saw or hear something like that, maybe they implied something like that in old lore that i don't remember atm, but they are huge but never continent size, N'zoth is actually pretty big compared to the others

    the biggest/strongest one, was ripped from the earth by Amanthul causing a great wound that is the Well of Eternity

    I have a feeling that we have the theme of the next expansion completely wrong. It won't be dragons, void, death, or anything we're expecting.

    A human is big yet they die when they get stabbed in the brain.

    What a stupid argument

    each old god have a main body, if you kill the main body who cares about the length of the old god? the only important part of a old god is the core, if you kill the core, you kill the old god, we can have aftereffect from the remains like the pandaria thing but nothing more.

    Hey guys, long time reader of these forums.

    Never had the urge to create an account as this site seems to drive people mad.
    However, now is the time to show my support for THE BOLVAR.

    A supporter of the Bolvar is part of the Family!

    (this is a much better 1st forum post than leak accounts with 1 post)

    My bet is Mueh'zala. Of course revealed slowly as expansion progress, like N'zoth or Sargeras.
