    This could mean that Sylvanas has a big part in 9.0.
    Or that none of their games can really carry this Blizzcon, so they've had to rely on all of them.

    Or that her big role is in 8.3.

    It would be a first for them to make 8.3 the highlight of the WoW announcements panel, so I'm leaning more towards her being the most prominent character in 9.0.

    That's not to say she won't have a big part in 8.3, though. We'll find out soon enough, but Blizzard is expected to dedicate the majority of their WoW panel to the new expansion.

    Additional curious art: New PTR background on Battle.net

    Anyone's guess if this is tied to BFA, Classic, 9.0, or something else entirely so here y'all go.

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

    Thing is, without Blizzcon, they won't really have an event to sell 8.3 to the public at.
    Unless they show up at something like TGS or EGX, there's really only Blizzcon that's big enough.

    And where you'll find me if they pull that.
    If they truly pull a Sylvanas=Kerrigan move this xpac, and shell be the Khadgar of the next (which is quite likely, since the Blizzcon art wow char has been relevant in the next xpac for quite some time now) you wont even find me there. Itll prove that Danusers boner fully controls the story by now, and seriously, fck that, my acc stays frozen.

    How about every addon since MoP? Every single one was leaked

    Also the next foreseeable year will still be mostly BFA, Sylvanas is probably a big player in 8.3. I’m guessing boss, but not final. She doesn’t have to play a role in 9.0 to still be the WoW marquee character for BlizzCon.

    Unless 9.0 is miraculously soon after.

    in priority:
    -class gameplay rework
    -find a way to recreate a comunity feeling
    -remove wf tf and all the exageration of loot rng
    - return of tier as they should be: 2pc change core rotaion 4pc increase power
    - not so invading leggendary/artifact/azerite system... should be just a balancing lever not core system
    - loot need more importance, so less loot but stronger
    - lfr do not drop tier or good trinket
    - dungeon challenge return, less mythic+
    - profession rework
    - more alt friendly
    - fly when cap lvl instant
    - no new zone, rework all the world
    - stop the crappy turtle/bejewel wq

    I've read through all the pages I believe, so forgive me if I missed it anywhere in advance. I am curious though, is there even a shred of mention anywhere of Pristine Realms they were talking about back then?

    I suppose (inspired by the Classic) that 9.0 would be a perfect time to introduce those, somewhat inspiring people to play all over, especially if they re-design the old world zones, and somewhat keep the "pre-made group finder" for multi-player content, however remove heirlooms, elixirs, LFG and LFR functions.

    In my honest opinion, it would embrace the community feeling again and somewhat force people to socialize with one another, do things the harder way and not have everything for granted.

    It would help as well if they were to make rares, world quests, bosses and other group content tougher to kill, so players are encouraged to find one another and have fun together without heirlooms and other stuff.

    Can't personally think of better time to introduce those than a world revamp. Level squish would come in handy there as well.

    Pristine Realms have basically become Classic at this point. They won't go any harder than Classic.

    I've got a feeling 9.0 will be profession focused, thinking we'll finally get a thorough profession rework.

    Professions should become their own form of end-game content kind of like how dungeons are their own form of end-game content and same for pet battles (in a sense with the pet dungeons and collections etc).

    Give people more avenues to spend their time at "end-game" imo.

    This is very likely just the new background for the base game, and also PTR. edit: yep, it's shown for my second licence without BfA, as well as the 2 Starter Editions I somehow have (EU and US)

    No problem with Garrisons if we also get a raid and a dungeon every patch.

    PvP balance and raiding meta. No class is allowed to be more scary than the others. Sadly.
