    I'm a simple man. I detest Shadowlands as a setting, so I truly do hope Shadowlands will end with patch 9.2. Nothing of value will be lost.

    No, we need to go bigger. We need to go to war with an entire Cosmic Force....

    We need to try and be as popular as Shadowbringers.

    It's time... to fight ALL OF THE LIGHT ITSELF!!!!1!!!!!
    Nah we dont.. please god no.

    Its already all over the place.. its obvious people lose interest except for a few people here who are hyped for that shit.

    I rather see a setting on azeroth where we visit the races and what they are up to.. maybe take gilneas back, look for a place forthe forsaken, wrap stories there and visit places on Azeroth we still need to visit. Anything, but that stupid light vs voidbulshit.

    that wasn't Zovaal. However, that was one of his lackeys in the ICC pre-expac experience.

    I side with this, unless the whole Shamanic folklore gets their own zone in 9.2. That's the way to save this setting.

    The fact that all the zone storylines are effectively finished in 9.1s campaign makes me think that the next patch will be a different realm entirely, and therefore this will be a 2 patch expansion. I think it was always planned this way though (see the Maw being mostly finished and the maw armor in 9.0) and it’s not due to budget cuts, but they wanted to make a smaller expansion before 10.0.

    I assume the idea is that whatever 10.0 is will be announced around the same time its confirmed its a two patch expansion, and it’s “hype” enough for people not to be mad that they paid for only two patches (world revamp, neutral PVE mode, housing, etc). But maybe this is why the price was reduced in the first place?

    There are a few things that don’t get resolved by the last campaign quest though. Namely what happens to Vol’jin, what happens to Denathrius after the Nathrezim steal him and whatever happens to Kyrestia and her magic sword wound. These can all happen in 9.2 though.

    I would like Denny and the Nathrezim to survive post Zovaal. They are crafty enough to outlive both the Legion AND Zovaal and the infiltration book implies their story will continue with Lothraxion and an unnamed spy in the Life realm.

    Them saying we will be getting tier sets again lines up with us probably not getting zone armor for whatever 9.2 is, so we'd at least have one patch of tier sets. And while not a lot is pointing to it currently, if there's any time for the Covenants to provide Allied Races it's 9.2 as we have helped them solve their problems and now they have to work with us to go to wherever Zovaal is and bring him down. That could be another "hype point" to deflate the disappointment in only two patches.

    I see a lot of posts lately saying they are tired of the SL setting and want to return to Azeroth so... maybe Blizzard planned on this?

    Y'all are delusional if you think they're delaying the next expansion until Q3/23 or later, lol.
    10.0 production normally would have started no later than 9.0 release but blizz is behind so obviously the expansion is delayed

    9.1 isn’t even out of development just look at the thing

    I get that we can use past patch releases to figure out the next but you have to also remember that everything is delayed whether we like it or not

    Now this went from someone saying 10 months from September 22 is 24 and now “there’s no possible way they will delay an expansion that’s definitely not already delayed”

    If nothing else, the portal that the Jailer opens looks like almost nothing else we've seen (aside from, I think, the location of the Primus' sigil, interestingly).

    It closely resembles the black, white and gold coloration shown in First One tech and energy. I think he is going for the Sepulcher of the First Ones and/or a First One plane, which aligns with what Primus said he would do.

    That's along what I think as well.

    At the least, doesn't make me think anywhere on Azeroth, nor the realm of Life like some think.

    Definitely curious how it'll look.

    See, the problem is that not a single soul on Earth wants Shadowlands to last 3 years, so pretty much everyone hopes 10.0 won't be delayed.

    I think it'll look pretty close to the Oribos/Korthia style, as their architecture has a similar design to the First One relics and creations such as the robot boss in Sanctum.

    This would line up with the tier set thing as we would probably not get a zone-themed armor set (as we already have Oribos gear and Broker weapons resemble them already).

    I doubt 10.0 is delayed. Everything pointed to 9.1 being small already, such as the Sanctum armor being in the game already and Tazavesh already being foreshadowed through Broker assets/the lack of an actual "Broker zone". A lot of the Maw was also pointless at launch which points to them planning on expanding it in the next patch.

    9.1 being small isn't because of COVID. We are lacking anything that launch was already foreshadowing, there is nothing obviously cut like Faralohn (for all people are wanting the Ancestor/Shaman zone, not much ingame points to it ever existing). The patch was likely designed to be small already, albeit not with such a late release.

    My new guess is that the 7th Cosmic Power is actually Steve Danuser himself, from beyond the 4th wall. For 10.x we will cross the 4th wall and enter the mind of Steve Danuser himself, that resembles Azeroth but instead of fighting, everyone is naked and fucking.

    If it means we get a full expansion with at least 9.3 I'm fine with that.

    Y'all are delusional for believing that an expansion that's already been confirmed to have been delayed in multiple interviews has been delayed, LULZ

    I would love Covenant Allied Races in 9.2! Although at that point they need to move the account maximum from 50 to something like 80 or more. I would even pay for it. Would love to have one alt of every race/class combi that's possible some day, lol.

    I'd mostly be okay with SL ending at 9.2. 9.1 effectively took the place of a .2 patch and SL basically skipped over a traditional .1 patch.

    Yes. Nothing in this expansion's story has a "missing" chunk that needs to be dealt with in 9.2 before 9.3.

    Expansions don't all have to be 3 patches long.
