    The sad thing is, I cannot remember from the top of my head how it's pronounced in cutscenes...have to research.

    That said, I just discovered the logo leak and the second dracthyr pic (which looks kinda legit). Perhaps it's not a new playable race but just an npc race like nathrezim?

    If Drakthyr are neutral, think you'll be able to make a Drakthyr that turns into a human, for example, but is Horde?

    The questline at the end is a bit annoying if you have just started playing, but not an impossible task compared to DI dwarf or Vulpera.

    Or maybe it's something as simple as them being a regular race in 10.0, but requiring a special questline in the pre-order to be able to play.
    All sounds a bit awkward to do, but I figure it could all work. I'm not sure how this would work, really—we've never really had a race without either a questline to introduce them or an event preceding the expansion proper. The Draenei and Blood Elves joined us on Azeroth shortly before the Dark Portal opened, whereas the Worgen, Goblins and Pandaren all joined with an explanatory pre-game questline.

    So from that Frankystein leak it seems like we will fight against the first original Old God and the void beacon on the isles may be what brings us the "Light vs Void" arc?

    Sounds a bit like MoP, and I love it!

    I wonder if Dragonflight will bleed right into a Lightbound 11.0 then.

    The idea is you pick a core race to be your mortal form, horde players will just pick a horde race.

    This is news to me lol. Seems random.

    I would imagine that it would have race options from both factions. Either a small selection, or just making it easy and making every race available.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Weird, because all 3 major RP servers are full of both of those things, and there's entire guilds thriving off this.

    What's next, people hate vampire roleplayers on Alliance despite the dozens of Void Elves AFK in Stormwind every single day with their profiles set to such?

    Possible. It would be very odd for the leakers to find it, then proceed to mod it into the character creation screen, then go ahead and modelshift themselves in front of a red mist effect just to confuse and muddle their own leak, though.

    What I'm thinking is that Blizzard is using the NPC model as a temporary placeholder, or was at the time the screenshot was taken, explaining all the oddities around the race like the clipping wings, then will also use a proper player model on release. This is a very odd way of doing things, though.

    Would be awesome! Also, maybe Galakrond was corrupted by that first Old God?

    Not possible due to timelines. Arthas and Jaina were apart at the time Anduin was born and hadn't been together for years.

    Admittedly, "cringeworthy" is not always "unpopular". A lot of people cringe at the vampires, Scarlet Crusaders and Dragons but that doesn't mean people don't play as them. Sometimes, the minority frowns on a large population.

    I would say there is one Crusader guild that I actually really thought were cool and interesting, which is a shame given that most of them are insufferable edgelords or worse.

    Yes. Though that's been the case for a while. lol

    Knaifu back with a vengeance?

    Also guys, remember the textures that got datamined way back? The ones that we speculated to be either Lexie's new outfit or something for Belves? Looked at the clothed feamel Drac'thyr. Ain't she wearing just that?

    Where was it mentioned Horde Drakthyr could only pick Horde core races?
