    I'm with you, but...I doubt it. I have been waiting to retake Gilneas since Cataclysm. Despite Genn's promise, as well as other 'hints' over the years, I'm convinced we're never returning to that place. I'm almost 30 now, I lost all hope.

    So imagine how long it'd take for the Night Elves to get a new home, if ever.

    As long as there's either housing or a new class / spec(s), I'll be happy (along with other things like fun systems, good world design, no power grind, m+ actual updates, etc.) I'll be happy. Preferably both.

    And unlocked it faster than literally any other player since even as a human with the rep increase you only had about 2.5k Mechagon rep at most including the daily mob grind package


    A time gate isn’t a great system but sitting here going on about “oh it’s a mobile game now” is retarded especially since there’s nothing to do with flying in the barebones 9.2 zone

    Then again I believe 10.0 should be a building block and a slowing down of the narrative to a core basis to build stories from that people can naturally follow and not BFA: Cosmic Edition or Dragon Isles (context being Cataclysm Ending and Wrathion storyline that are both old storylines that new players would not understand)

    I'll come here each week now and just ask if there's been any substantial news / leaks about 10.0, because there's really nothing going on in this expansion.

    So: did I miss something in the last days besides some fabricated leaks?

    Zovaal had a Heart of Azeroth clone other than that. No not really. We're still in the same waiting for release date phase for a long while now and then waiting for the post-Zovaal Cinematic environment.

    According to this cutscene Lordaeron has already been rebuilt. So the "new race bios" on the official website aren't even up to date to the end of BFA.

    Its conflicting to say the least.. the book says something else entirely.. nothing happened.

    Anyway, it was just my own view on it.. i dont care so much, I will wait and see how they ruin it.

    It'd be an easy way to get rid of probably the biggest reason a 1-60 revamp is required.

    Then just scrub off Undercity and boom, status quo reclaimed.

    Sadly, knowing Blizz, it'll probably be the most accurate one too.

    The 9.0 1-50 revamp was pretty much the only thing people were universally positive about. Unless you mean the zones themselves, I'd bet on it only being a new azeroth for 60-70 players. The Devs regarded the cataclysm revamp as necessary but definitely hurt Cataclysm's endgame development.

    Wait I just rewatched this and I really can't find anything that says that Lordaeron city has been rebuilt, am I missing something? Or are you talking about the Tirisfal Glades as a whole? AFAIK, the eastern part including Deathkneel and Calson State was never damaged in the alliance siege or by the blight, so they have remained forsaken holdings all along.

    At the point where you're already designing that sort of minor-threat quest zone with heavy racial identity, why wouldn't you just go ahead and start a race there?

    The problem with implementing new full-fledged races was that it involves making entirely new zones with that 10-20 levels of questing, but the situation here is that you have a bunch of races who already have those zones that need to be populated with quests anyway.
    They could turn those zones into like 8-15 zones or something. Retune Exiles to be 1-8.

Not only that, but with armor compatibility, it seems almost certain that the intent is playability.

    If I had to spitball, it'll probably be a 9.2.5 release, and a pre-order bonus to get people buying the new expansion.

    I don't think it's a huge leap in logic to say Kyrian probably isn't the only one, going by the logic that this will likely be playable.
    Guessing just Kyrian and Venthyr. Alliance Kyrian and Horde Venthyr, or neutral allied race?

    My final guess is that she has to jump into the Maw and save every soul. It's going to take her 10,000 years or something dumb like that to save every soul. After which the arbiter will judge her and let her have peace.

There's also likely an encrypted emerald drake mount in the files, which might or might not have a connection to future content as well. Hmm!
    Living world enter. What is the entire expansion is underground. We have to fight our way to Azeroth and deal with underground enemies and Old God minions trying to kill her or something. 5 zones underground sounds fantastic.

    Only part that seemed even remotely plausible outside systems are the part where there is a society of various shipwrecked survivors.
    Its definitely a new idea and very creative. Its out there enough to be real. Not that I think it is, but it sounds interesting at least.

    There is enough Dragon stuff, revamp stuff and EK/Kalimdor plotlines floating around to say Cata 2 is a go. Not to mention the smaller expansion (SL, nothing obviously scrapped like WoD so they probably planned it this time) precluding a large one.
    Wasnt there a barrens or durotar rock texture during bfa? Obviously for a scrapped Warfront, but could also be used for a revamp.

    What 10.0 will be about:

    - another borrowed power system(s)
    - another 5 leveling areas
    - another final raid
    - another set of dungeons

    what 10.0 will not be about

    - systems that matter
    - rewards outside of raids, dungeons and pvp that matter for character progression
    - fun open world content
    - fair pvp
    - a good crafting system with progression from world content, without the need to play "everything"
    - a focus on what players want (narrow progression pathes instead of "play-it-all")
    - no raid focus

    Guys, guys!
    I've got his leak from an inside WoW dev.
    Hold on to your butts, this is a big one.

    So you do not want systems that matter, rewards outside of raids, dungeons and pvp, fun open world content, fair pvp, a good crafting system and a focus on what players want rather than what a single dev or the devs want?

    Again, you don't speak for the players, so saying "focus on what players want" means nothing, since each player wants something different. I don't care about PvP, but I want raids to still be in the focus. And other stuff you said is confusing af. Systems that matter? So Covenants or tier sets do not matter? Or is it an issue with 9.2 Cypher system not giving player power?

    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.
