    We now have a giant housecat and phoenix bird rig and model that should appear in the future, and I think Lifelands makes more sense than them being on the Dragon Islands.
    Welp, that lifelands leak was legit I guess. </s>
    The future Blizzard wants is not the past we loved.

    Lifelands was going to be a thing since they namedropped it this expansion. It being its own expansion has a .001% chance, its way more likely to be a patch because we've run out of zones in the Shadowlands.

    We may as well be out of zones, considering Zereth Mortis is our next location...and that's supposedly outside the Realms of Death, and the Gardens of Life is basically connected to Ardenweald.

    Don't forget they said time goes by much faster in the Shadowlands. So when we return to Azeroth alot of things may have changed while we were gone.

    Did you just...miss the 30 interviews that completely debunk what you just said regarding time on Azeroth Vs the Shadowlands? Or?

    The colour scheme reminds me of Alexstrasza (especially her heroes of the storm skin) as well as ears = her horns, dragons next?

    No, time is not flowing any different than it does anywhere else.

    At first i thought the cat hinted more of the sun and moon thing(zones, characters, not sure yet) but now i am not as certain because the descriptions seems more general than the skyblazers ones, but could also be because it is a cat i guess and they wanted it to be playful.

    Not the only one yet but we definetely are not many, really wanna explore sun side of things since elune is so much more prominent and i always liked the theme of the sunwalkers.

    They actually meant space is much different in Shadowlands, not time. When we get back, WoW will fit on mobile phones.

    I wouldn't worry too much about descriptions, the Sylverian dreamer came out of a painting/was named after an artist but is an Ardenweald dragon despite having nothing to do with its name or description.

    That's literally not what it means at all considering we literally have people come to the Shadowlands from Azeroth, and us being canonically being able to leave.

    If time is flowing different then it will be used to explain why nothing has changed, not why we have a timeskip.
    It's what makes far more sense in explaining the different realms and how Kael'thas has supposedly been in Revendreth for ages, or how the Kyrian can ferry souls so efficiently.

    But time’s not flowing differently…

    Secret shaman area? I tried Google and I can't find anything on it. Do you have any more information that would aid me in my search?

    There is a Dark Shaman totem and a moving magma sphere here.



    There is another room nearby that is used for a WQ but this currently has no purpose. Unsure if it's abandoned stuff or a hint that the Kyrian are secretly tied to the elements/Shamans (the name implies it is some kind of secret)

    For what it's worth, we can't actually tell since we have no news from Azeroth. Probably isn't, though, since somebody should remark on that if it did.

    A summery of the Timeskip "theory"
    1.) Ion said time works differently in the shadowlands. He specifically referred to time moving *much faster* on Azeroth. But sometimes devs say things at lore pannels that are totally wrong. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    2.) "Nothings changed" on Azeroth but all zones you visit in game exist in a specific place in time. Canonically no involved in the Shadowlands plot has checked in on whats going on back on Azeroth, but Talia & Calia "visiting" is contentious to this. (They entered after us, but as far as we know they haven't returned)
    3.) It's likely that this was just to cover their butts when they reveal whatever caused the Arbiter to go to sleep. The most educated guess it was when Argus was killed but that's not definitive. The presence of Legion characters in Shadowlands could just be the result of them being rescued like Alexandros was.
    4.) Basically if they want to do a Timeskip, they could. But it would still feel like an asspull. He was probably just invoking other fantasy settings where light makes time go faster & shadow makes time go slower

There's no way to be sure if it's part of something larger or just another revamp because they could (like Uther's Shrine), there are some more things connected to these models that tie it in with other new things like the Hearthstone Tavern but I don't think anyone has really bothered looking at it very deeply yet. Maybe when 9.2 comes around!
    Ah ok Didn't know it was mentioned here before.

    Well yeah, they also said that Uthers tomb was "it just happened". And yet he had his spotlight in following expansion.
    And if they confirmed it had to do something about following expansion, it would be clear as eye that next exp would be Shadowlands.
