    He has no eyes to see, but he dreams of infinite memeing and trolling.

    Something is definitely going to happen to her, but she isn't going to be killed off or written out of the plot. We all know that.

    I hope the final cutscene will be in CGI, but I can dream

    Considering they put a CGI cinematic in game for the first time during BFA, i wouldn't be surprised, especially since we still have the eternal ones models from the cinematic that were only used for like 10 seconds.

    Sultanas gets captured

    In 9.2 she sacrifices herself to save Anduin with a cringe dialogue about choices and hope

    Sylvanas: I chose to save you little lion…I chose hope

    It's no secret WoW is doing badly and 9.1 is more or less a flop and fixes nothing substantial about the game.

    9.2 is months and months away. Blizzard released 8.2 3 days before the pre-release of Shadowbringers (I believe) and this time they will not have 9.2 for that.

    That leads me to believe that they will have to announce 10.0 this year. Probably this fall to be more exact. I don't believe Blizzard can afford to wait until Blizzconline 2022 (in February likely) to announce 10.0 after this shitshow.

    They need something to restore the hype.

    Then, 9.2 will be about the Jailer's invasion, the ending of the Covenant Campaigns with us battling Denathrius at Nathreza, us going to the Gardens of Life in order to save Elune and the Pantheon of Life (Hence the mounts), Uther reuniting with Arthas for a bit, the Titan Keepers defeating Helya at Ulduar, us defeating a resurrected Galakrond, Anduin and Sylvanas' arcs ending for the expac (Anduin will live, Sylvanas may likely die), and us stopping Zovaal at the Sepulcher of the First Ones.
    Best guess I’ve read in a while.

    9.2 being the final patch, taking us away from the Shadowlands and throwing gear at the player like 8.3 did would be a good band-aid for this expansion and let the playerbase chill for the year it will take afterward for 10.0 to arrive.

    They would need to announce it before FFXIV's expansion drop in September.

    Gamescon is in August, so we may see a Legion situation where they announce the next expansion there instead of at BlizzCon in February.

    Wouldn't that be Sultranas?

    So how exactkly will this go down today? Will they be able to datamine the cinematic as soon as the servers in the US are back up or will the encryption only end once someone has slogged through normal? When will that be in gmt+2?
    #1) MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    #2) Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    They don't need to announce it at all. Plus Endwalker isn't out until November.

    Well before the nI would expect a 9.1.5. It doesnt need to be a whole lot, but I would be surprised if Blizzard didnt at least give us the baseline minor patch of glorified hotfix.

    Regardless of that though, with the Covenant questline we are due at least 5 more weeks after this one before all the non-repeatable content is available, so I wouldnt hold my breath for an announcement before then, at least not for 9.2.

    Someone will neeed to defeat Sylvanas. But given we have dedicated Mythic groups who already outgear that difficulty and have planned for this raid for a while I cannot imagine it will take them long. Maybe 3 hours at the most.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    I hope not. The CGI scenes are good if they put them on youtube, but they clash horrible with the game itself. I like the HD ingame cinematics more.
