    There is arguably far more reason to have a world revamp then there was reason to even have Vanilla way back, the amount of major events that have happened and presumably been recovered from is quite extensive.
    There have been 10 years at least since Cata had us running around Westfall. Sentinel hill was just being fortified, 10 years is more than enough time to have it become a proper military garrison, better yet a real town.
    Whatever happened in Andorhal, and did the fourth war affect it? We could asssume that it was settled by Forsaken after the ccataclysm, but now that Sylvanas is gone we have to wonder whether regular humans are trying to resettle it as well, with or without military help.

    There is so much content that could be gleaned simply from an expansion where the big "event" is simply being sent to rediscover Azeroth.

    Could even link the idea that the Dragon Isles are floating to Skyhold flying.

    Odyn separated Skyhold from Ulduar and made it fly because he was angry at the other keepers empowering the dragon aspects, could be a thoraway line that one or more of the keepers lifted up a landmass for the dragon to usse out of spite, could even have it be Helya honestly.
    Helya was the reason why Halls of Valor became Odyn's prison and made it separate from Ulduar. It was through her magic. Odyn was the reason why Helya became the first valkyr because his dislocated eye saw what was in the Shadowlands and can see whatever is happening there which is the Eye of the Jailer.

    No, Odyn separated the Skyhold from Ulduar because he was angry they blessed the dragons which he deemed as lesser and unworthy.

    Helya locking the Halls away in a pocket dimension came later, after Loken got corrupted and released her from Odyns control.

    I don't think they will ever make blood elf land alliance. Ever. Never. The drama will be never ending, in fact it will end, when thousand of BE players will stop playing out of protest.

    But sure some funny scenarios will happen

    Lordaeron and Quel'thalas look like they will be solidly Horde territory in the future, but with supposed neutral zones coming soon it would make sense if they allowed more travel.

    Just how the game seems to be building up to a neutral theme or mechanic.

    Also, no way would Calia not allow Alliance into her lands.

    ...I think she would....Calia isn't anti Alliance or Alliance hostile.

    My double negative was confusing, I agree with you. If Calia is the racial leader in the future then her area will likely be open to both Alliance and Horde.

    The question is the lore reason for why Nelves would allow Horde into their area (maybe cenarion circle).

    Technically the Forsaken now is neutral. Sylvanas ressurected Night Elves and become part of the Forsaken ranks. Derek also being ressurected and now once again a Menethil stepping up to lead a leaderless Forsaken.

    Seems like 9.3 is gonna happen for sure, I don't think Ion would meme about SL being WoD 2.0 if that wasn't the case.

    Maybe he's trying to do the Dad Approval thing, where your dad liking something you like makes it uncool; he's trying to beat the memes that way.

    Do we think they may update the upper half first?
    It's all or nothing. Having Northern Barrens be talking about Thrall being back and how there's a fledgling peace with the Alliance and then you cross to Southern Barrens and it's still Garrosh VS Varian would be too jarring.




    Anyway other reason I'm here. Anyone else sad that Blizz is once again looking at Disc Priests? Like can they ever catch a break? First shields were too OP so they made them Fistweavers, now they do too much DPS so I bet fistweaving is on the way out.
    WoW has Cancer. First you cut out the cancer (abusive devs), then you assign an aggressive treatment plan (major design rework) to save it.

    Or you just let it die because that's too expensive.

    Uhm... he said there will be a 9.2 - okay, who was questioning that? 9.2 is a given, 9.3 is not.

    And by the sound of it, 9.1 seems to be away months, not weeks, which makes July the most likely month for release (if that wasn’t obvious anyway).

    Tier sets in 9.2 is a nice surprise though.

    It was preach who added the 9.2 bit.

    Ion just made fun of the doomsayers and confirmed that this isn't gonna be another wod scenario.

    They said this expac will not be like WoD, and they’re playing catch up game. I assume we’ll see a 9.3

    I have to assume he meant that there would be a 9.3. We assume a raid each patch, and to have more raids than WoD we have to have a 9.3 unless we are really trying to stretch and say a mini-raid is actually a proper raid.

    Though then again, I guess noone would really consider 6.1 a real patch anyways, so it isnt completely unthinkable to say that WoD only had one major patch.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Another WoD scenario would be to have just one content patch. That this was never expected for Shadowlands was kinda obvious. With 9.2 Shadowlands already would have more content patches than WoD.

    That’s not what it means though. WoD only had one content patch, Shadowlands will have more than that with the existence of 9.2 already.

    That’s at least my understanding of what was said.

    Time will tell!

    Still happy that Tier sets are finally making a return. Do y’all think they might be reminiscent of ICC tier sets?
