    Is this N'zoth?

    Haven't seen any models yet about his form in the final raid encounter, but I assumed this is him.



    just going by previous artwork released of him

    Silly billy we saw his form when he revived ashasa he’s the black smoke above the squid thingy!

    I am going to go ahead and say that he looks... absolutely unimpressive, especially when compared to the artwork.
    Like a ballsack.

    Add tentacles and might look good.

    Well it's either that or this:

    Though one could be the Carapace and the other "his true form".

    Actually, that's his Avatar.

    The model in this thread is basically just his "head", though. He's a lot bigger than this.

    No, this is Patrick

    but yeah its him, with half tentacles

    Yes, that's very very likely N'zoth. I mean, it looks just like him, complete with the eye positioning and such.

    This kind of raises a question for me, though. Did they base N'zoth's WoW appearance off of Hearthstone, or the other way around? If it's the other way around, how long have they had concept art for him?
    If you reply to me with a full essay I'm probably not going to bother reading it, sorry.

    His artwork looks so much better. WoW's cartoony graphics makes it look like it comes from a kids cartoon

    If your ballsack looks like that you need to see a doctor like yesterday.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they've had artwork over the years for lore purposes and this has been his design from ages ago. I'm sure they do some minor tweaking, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is how they designed him 10+ years ago.

    Also the way his head is shaped really reminds me of CoS when you're running towards the last boss. You walk into what looks like a giant mouth with rows of teeth above and below you, almost like he was tilted on his side with his head ajar. Any relation?
    Most likely the wisest Enhancement Shaman.

    The Hearthstone team wanted to make a N'Zoth card, so they contacted the WoW team and asked them if they(the WoW team) could decide how he would look so they could make their card :P

    It's just ONE part of the full model. I'm sure it won't be "just that" in the fight (assuming that's really N'Zoth) and that there will be tentacles and other stuff around in the fight. For all we know, the entire fight could happen like it was in the Crucible of Storms, with us "inside" N'Zoth and this is just one part of him we interact with during the fight.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!
    Update 08/17: I changed how the Bone spec's golem mechanic works, as well as some other minor changes.
    I also did a Bard thing! Questions, comments and ideas, all welcome!
    Update 09/02: Apparently the mods decided to merge my class concept thread with an existing one.
