    Maw Islands.
    It became clear that it wasn’t realistic to try to get the audience back to being more hardcore, as it had been in the past. -- Tom Chilton

    This week we basically finish 9.0 story. If they want reveal 9.1 in reasonable time before Blizzcon, next week would be perfect to keep interest.

    Any Source? or just suggestion

    Imo I would be hyped for it because those sets were awesome. If they do anything like they did with T6 in Tomb of Sargeras then they're gonna be amazing looking.

    Would love it. I really dislike Tomb of Sargeras for picking arguably one of the worst hunter sets when TBC had so many good ones, but the Cryptstalker gear is probably one of the best sets hunter have, especially if we get it in full HD with all the bells and whistles.

    Very late on this, but has anyone pointed out that Nordrassil looks almost completely different between now and the "Sylvanas abducts everyone" cinematic?

    I think we might learn more about the devourers or brokers(raid/dung or maybe a zone), after all xymox escaped and cartel va seems to be hiding stuff and that scary in-between full of of those apocalyptic anima consuming monsters.

    I just fucking don't get it, how can it be january already n there's no news on what's coming next major patch...unbelievable..

  11. #191
    It's obvious.....3 new zones for each patch (9.1/9.2/9.3), as there are 3 empty gates in Oribos

    Yeah hopefully one of them is the brokers land!

    At the point we're headed for Wrath of the Shdowlands Dragon Isles Lich and tinkers.

    I wonder what other realms could they create. We have a version of hell(the maw), heaven(bastion), purgatory (revendreth). We have a nature inspired one and a death, scourge inspired one (life and death, kinda).
    I guess one of the things I suggested way back when is a "banshee" inspired realm. Since we've had the true origins for most of the scourge/dead related beings, like the val'kyr, the san'layn, the scourge, etc ... Maybe we could get an original form for the banshee as well, and we'd get a continuation of sylvanas' story there. Maybe we'd even find out there'd be a special significance to Arthas having made her a banshee I don't know. At the same time I don't think it's gonna happen because the Maw already feels like the realm of shades and wraiths like banshees (and you encounter them in torghast as well). Also her design is so tied to the maw, I think that's the place that's gonna be significant for her.
    So what else? I think that having Baine and Anduin in the Shadowlands could probably mean seeing Cairne and Varian there. But Varian should have been in Maldraxxus no?
    So an ancestors type realm from Tauren/Orc culture? There's also the brokers and the devourers as people have mentioned before.

    Theory that the sleeping wolf in ardenweald is varian due to his connection to Goldrin

    Would be in line with the Cataclysm 2.0 prediction (Black Dragonflight, Ragnaros, Bronze Dragonflight, Void).

    We have a Priest afterlife (Bastion) being angelic. We have a Druidic afterlife (Ardenweald) being nature.
    We have a Death Knight afterlife (Maldraxxus & Revendreth) being death and blood.

    Then, the afterlives we are, probably, missing are:

    Monk afterlife (there's, literaly, an ability called "Afterlife"). Won't have August Celestials, though.
    Shaman afterlife (ancestral spirits). Won't have Elementals, though.
    A Frosty afterlife (the only Death Knight spec not represented in the Afterlife). Though, it might be, already, represented by Northrend.
    Mage is an ambiguous one. We have Kyrians using Arcane magic but, i don't know how much Bastion represents Arcane, time or illusion magic.
    Bastion seems to encompass Paladin afterlife, as well. But, we haven't got a clue where light beings go to when they die and we see the Light helping Uther's soul reach the afterlife.

    We know Ardenweald encompasses Hunter afterlife, as well.
    Demon Hunter and Warlock afterlives are the Twisting Nether/Argus.
    Monk August Celestials, probably, go to Ardenweald with the other Wild gods, so it won't be about them.
    We know Void creatures go to their own realm, like Nyalotha so there, probably, won't be a voidish afterlife.
    Maldraxxus encompasses Rogue afterlife, as there is a house of spies (eyes).
    Elementals go to the elemental planes so, there won't be an elemental afterlife.
    Maldraxxus and the Halls of Valor, already, encompass Warriors so, there won't be another Warrior afterlife.

    Lots of stuff to explore

    Arthas redemption arc
    KelThuzad
    Brokers and their plans
    Thros
    Jailer
    Sylvanos and Nathanos
    The original master of the Maw (if we assume the Jailer was the real Arbiter)
    Gallywix (he could be the silly Mechagon interlude)
    Devourers (maybe theres a Force behind them)

    Whether the above could come as Dungeons, zones, raids or Covenant quests is not easy to determine

    And thats before they simply whip up some other death-realm with total unknowns

    Most likely, this will be the case. I could see one of these being reserved for a raid entrance that starts from Oribos and has you fly in to whatever the raid is. Perhaps some sort of outward assault on the Maw or the like.

    Otherwise, I think it's safe to assume at the very least that was the plan at one point. if not currently. What I find really interesting is how unevenly placed the gates are right now. Like Bastion and Maldraxxus are right next to each other, but then Revendreth has no one next to it. I would've thought at least the first four would be set up in a + pattern and/or evenly spaced. This feels almost intentional, but I can't really see any sort of link as to what the spacing would be.

    As I feel like Thros is a near inevitability to come up, I'm guessing that's what goes in the 9.1 spot. Right next to Ardenweald, with some of the darkness and ghoulish/sinful themes of Revendreth. The 9.2/9.3 spots are a little trickier, given that we really haven't received a lot of hints as to other realms of the Shadowlands. There is a reference to keeping the Jailer out of the Sepulcher, so perhaps that's one of the realms. I know there's a Sepulcher of Knowledge in Maldraxxus, but his fear sounded like a much bigger area than a small building. I kinda wonder if there's an entire realm of the Shadowlands knowledge that is referenced as the Sepulcher.

    Another small thought: what of the Twisting Nether? Is there any link between that and the Shadowlands?
