    I have no idea what it has to do with SL having 3 or 2 major patches. Revealing 9.2 now would be stupid cause it takes whole attention from 9.1 which isn't even on PTR.

    I have feeling 10.0 may be massive expansion that will launch somewhere in 2023 instead of 2022. But in this case 4th season would help to fill time. Also after all news Anduin looks like strong candidate for S3 boss (and obviously Jailer for S4).

    People often forget WoD had so few patches not because they pulled resources after launch. We had rumors about WoD being two tier expac (Highmaul + BRF was tier 1) way before premiere. We will never know full picture, but most likely they tried (or were forced) to implement that stupid yearly expansions idea and at some point in 2014 WoD was redesgined to fit that format.

    They have to present ssomething. We know that they will talk about 9.1, but they are not going to get a better chance at talking about 9.2 than now, even more important as 9.1 is likely quite close even with 9.0.5.

    Not a fan of the new zone being part of The Maw. Tired of that place aesthetically already.

    They wanted to do yearly expansions for man years and well when they uhhh tried to commit(Wod) well it was a woops


    P.S. Don't take it as me hating on WoD, I loved it if it was treated like Mop Legion and BFA content delivery(big content patches and such).

    If Blizz wants Shadowlands to last longer then all the other expansions to date... I aint complaining.

    They don't. We won't even have PTR until next month (I hope 9.1 PTR will start right after 9.0.5 launch). Patch isn't even officially revealed, all we have is leaked summary - from today. Tomorrow all info will be fresh. And as I said, revealing chapter 3 while we still learning about chapter 2 would be really, really stupid.

    I could honestly see Blizzard cutting SL short by a patch, but only if the intent is to have 10.0 be a world revamp expansion that requires as much time as it can possibly get. It wouldnt be a good idea necessarily, but I could in theory see it happen.

    I do doubt it though. Blizzard has a good thing going with the 3 main patch setup, and I doubt they want this expansion to be the one that breaks the streak.

    I could see them cutting it short a patch just to get back "on schedule."

    Like I said in the Blizzconline thread, it's weird to think with us still in 9.0 but this November should be the 10.0 reveal normally.
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    That would not put them back on schedule, short term gain for the schedule but....a problem in the long term. Terrible idea.

    They could do what they did during 7.2 and 8.2 blizzcon panels (with argus and N'zoth fish) and show some concept art.

    Well, that's Anduin ruined.

  13. #533
    My guess for next patches -

    9.1 - Lich Anduin is born! We fight Sylvanas in raid... until 5%... then she turns around and decides she's been trying to help us this whole time #5DChess

    9.2 - We have to find Arthas as for some contrived reason he's the only one who can help Anduin

    9.3 - We beat Jailer with Anduin and Arthas' help and Arthas becomes the new jailer.



    Then probably -

    Sylvanas goes back to Orgrimmar as a hero who helped save everyone but the Alliance warns her "If you fail to uphold honor, we will end you!" YES! #AllianceFistPumpMoment!

    9.3.5 Some quest about Anduin teaching Tyrande how she needs to learn forgiveness to be a real leader

    Yeah. And they have that card - Arthas.

    And then find out he's just being controlled by the Light and the Light is invading.

    It'll probably be something like.... Lightwalkers.
    I think next expac is going to be about Light and Shadow, really. With Light starting the shit off.

    And no, I don't see Anduin dying. I think we'll go to the Planes of Life and get some Life Essence in order to cleanse Anduin from his death corruption.

    Would be a pretty cool twist if in 9.2 it turns out the Jailer and Arbiter are two parts of the same being - and rightful ruler and balance-keeper of Shadowlands. Then the end patch we're fighting all the Covenant leaders who destroyed him in the first place instead.

    Latter is likely albeit maybe not even involving that specific scenario. The former no but thats very dependant what the side narrative is throughout the expansion. If for some reason a Naaru pops up on Azeroth....well..... read the subtext.

    If 10.0 is something huge like Cata 2/ another Azeroth revamp with things like Quel'thalas in the main world and new cities, then yeah I can see Shadowlands being a shorter expansion. Both so the devs can continue to pour in the huge amount of resources needed for it and for fans to not feel like they're "stuck" in Shadowlands when they'll desperately want to get back to new Azeroth.

    That being said there's still room for a detour inbetween the Maw and the Jailer's end destination (likely the Sepulcher) but I can see them shortening the expansion as well. All the base assets for the zones are in at the moment (armor, mounts etc) and now that the Broker realm is being explored we're kind of "out" of Shadowlands specific realms save for anything from the Inbetween.
