They would add a ton, especially if the Gorian Empire from AU Draenor was added with their arcane intelligence. Broken on the other hand is the exact opposite: I don't really know that they'd add much to the story & they'd likely get relegated to the background like most Worgen are, but I would love to play one as a Shaman. That just feels right to me.

    so we have that EoA leak with a few points in their favor

    1. khadgar returns
    2. heritage weapons
    3. sun form for balance druids
    4. reindeer mount

    1. they have him in and show "oh hey hes here checking stuff out" which seems very random but might just be there to kinda let people see him again to remind us he exists
    2. kinda common sense it was going to happen but i dont think anyone else guessed it
    3. we are getting a lot of talk about the eternal sun and it makes sense for tauren druids
    4. its in the files

    im going to sit here high on hopium for a while because while some things in that leak irk me (like the class not being based on wrathion and his agents) i do like the whole idea of "heres a new class with new powers and they have to integrate themselves into fighting with others" and im definitely saving the free boost for it UNLESS there is a heritage set for the class

    i personally see this as a point towards yes because we have multiple mentions about an eternal sun and taurens dont worship elune

Shit makes no sense.

    My money is on Old God. Her line of "weakest among us" is very telling. And for once I wouldn't be mad at a retcon of the number of Old Gods. They are sneaky sons of bitches after all and Knaifu is especially good at that.

    Where does an eternal sun gets mentioned? Its the first time i hear this.

    "It is ironic that the weakest of us may be the ultimate victor. C'Thun, Yogg-Saron, Y'Shaarj, and... well. Only one would remain to consume the world, that was always meant to be."

    While she does not say another name, she does most likely mean N'Zoth, but what was always curious was her usage of "us", putting herself alongside them.
    She definetly talks about n'zoth. She teases him in a few voicelines but only uses his name once or so.
    Also its very likely she's an old god. While her ingame rumored origin may be a reference to the old gods being retconned from five to four it's in their nature to wage war against each other until theres only one left.
    I still want her back. Bae Blade was my favorite thing about legion.

    On one hand some Scourge action would fit the Tirisfall revamp and the change in leadership for the Forsaken. But one the other hand another undead expansion after we spent two years in the Shadowlands, sounds like a poor business decision. Unless it is all super edgy gothic shit like Drustvarr and Renvedreth. In that case, sign me the fuck up.

    I guess so. The funniest part about that leak is that they would add a Pirate class at the cost of "reworking" Outlaw Rogues. Oof. Reminds me of how they "reworked" certain Warlock abilities when they added Demon Hunters.

    I think many are decent. I will absolutely agree with Warrior. I honestly felt that the Warrior campaign and hall should have been available to ALL players. (I'd have actually had KJ DESTROY Dalaran because the Legion barely felt like a threat, then we'd move to the Halls. It could be a secondary max level story to Suramar, involving the Legion collecting the remnants of the Pantheon's souls, could even have integrated legendaries and titanforging in it).
    I think Monk was pretty solid. It gave us back access to a very large area that should never have become inaccessible to begin with that has a lot of flavor. Sure it is entirely Pandaren but the class' flavor is entirely Pandaren and they never really managed to find a middle ground for that. THey could with class skins I suppose (I could see windwalker and brewmaster being the base for a blademaster skin or an anchorite skin for followers of the Light)
    I both loved and was disappointed by the Paladin one (why make it underground and then have an underground cathedral with massive windows???). Priest was imo nearly as bad as Warrior. The rest were mostly good (Rogue, Mage, Druid, DH, Shaman and Warlock were all perfect. DK was good but could have used a further revamp).


    I know this invokes the worse parts of this thread . . .but do people here think class skins have any chance of being a feature they'd consider or even implement next xpac? I know people would love a new class but class skins would offer vastly more customization.



    Also, one more throne is left Vacant with the 9.2.5. The FROZEN Throne. What if Calia does not claim the Throne of Lordaeron but rather claims the Frozen Throne under Sa'ara's guidance. The Light has made a deal with the enemy of all. Somehow the Light created undeath. Calia Menethil for Lich King. Undeath would actually be a solution to the Naaru lifecycle; what if it was possible for a Naaru to turn undead, merging Death into its lifecycle and thus avoiding the void state. Calia could then be the one to open the way for Yrel.

    You mean the leak that said heritage weapons would be coming to vendors, when they are clearly not on vendors, said we would be getting a reindeer mount, when we are not getting a reindeer mount, but a sled mount, and there is clearly no customization for any of the races in 9.2.5?

    Oh yeah, that is also the leak that for some reason decided Mag'har Orc Warlock would ever be a thing LMAO

    It mentions all these things, yet it does not mention the continuation of Heritage Quests, which are CLOSELY linked to Heritage Weapons.

    That leak is clearly fake.

    Well if you ask me every rework in Legion was dogshit. Too many skills were removed so that they can re-add them with artifact weapons. Leveling was completely gutted with sometimes 8 levels of nothing new.

    Honestly I could see it happening and it would make quite a lot of sense. Basically an extension of race-specific druid forms. I think we already talked about how Ghostwolf only makes sense to orcs, so it should be replaced for others. This could lead to straight-up class skins. Blood Knight and Sunwalker for Paladins, Tidesage for Shamans. Dark Ranger for Hunters...yeah there could be a lot. Not sure where I would put Blademaster or Shadow Hunter, but they could also work.

    Eh, not really. That entire "leak" reads more like a wishlist than a genuine leak. There's way too much info and they put too much effort into formatting the post to look neat. I'm expecting the real leak to be poorly formatted with bad grammar and spelling errors.

    1. Khadgar returning only makes sense and it's been at the forefront of multiple leaks since 2018 or so. People want Khadgar to come back so of course they're going to include that in their "leaks".

    2. Heritage weapons have been known about for years now. Blizzard was originally planning to add them in 7.3.5, but they got scrapped. It's good to see them do something with them now but this is old news.

    3. I don't know what that is, first time I'm hearing about it.

    4. No idea what that is either.

    EoA isn't a real leak. Even the acronym is stupid since it shares the acronym with a Legion dungeon (Eye of Azshara). What would the acronym even be short for here anyway? Eye of Alexstrasza? Lol.

    Don't forget how it somehow manages to miss the fact that SL season 4 will have Raids+.
    Seems like the kind of massive announcement that would overshadow pretty much anything since it's a feature that players have wanted for ages.

    But hey, maybe this vaguely defined worker position the leaker has somehow knows intimate details of the next expansion, the cosmetics being added in the next patches, customization options, but is completely unaware of systems. Maybe the company BBQ went awry one time and the systems designers now work in a sealed bunker.

    There is a datamined mount that looks exactly like the sleigh that flies around Ironforge and Orgrimmar during Winter Veil being added in 9.2.5.
    Reindeers are a part of it, but not really to the point where you would focus on that rather than it being Santa's sleigh.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    I could see Blademasters as Monks. They have a very similar style (blademasters and monk beads) they have a similar fighting style (more about dexterity and speed), Xuen and Niuzao could be replaced by elemental spirits/wolves. You could also have different ways to acquire class skins. Some could be nearly automatic or at least available in questing as soon as you roll your character. Others could be more complex.
    And yeah I'd like more customization in general. Even without class skins, so many things could be tweaked. E.g. you could select who your Demonic Tyrant would be as demo; warlocks did capture the Twin Eredar and imagine if you summoned Alythess instead of a random Eredar dude.

    I honestly have been putting some thought into this. With the Dark Ranger quest being worked on, the Blood Elf quest that resembles Blood Knight stuff, and the Tauren Sun Druid stuff in the leak, I can definitely see and get excited about if they chose to do this. Now am I wrong? I am almost 100% sure I am, but man it would be nice to have. I think it would liven the game up quite a bit. We only have 19 more days until we find out. lol

    I mean on one hand, it is SO MUCH WORK for the art team. On the other hand, the art team is usually months ahead of the rest of the teams.

    I will add this. Much of the playerbase, I'd dare say probably the significant majority, enjoys customization. But Customization is far less effective return on investment if the game is not alt-friendly. The more alt-friendly you make the game, the more characters people play and they more time they invest on customizing them. I've friends in ESO who have 4-5 different characters and each of them has a fully furnished mansion.
