    I'll just say that Blizzard not making a dragon class based off of characters like Alexstraza, Chromie, Wrathion, and Kalecgos would be one of the biggest missed opportunities ever. People would go crazy over a class like that.
    This. But on the other hand, they didn't go with Dark Rangers for Shadowlands (which only makes sense if they choose to make them a class skin in 10.0/11.0 instead imo). But yeah, a Dragon Expansion without a Dragonsworn Class would be super sad indeed.

    Yep, no DR in Shadowlands was another weird missed opportunity. Especially considering that the userbase was clamoring for another ranged class, and Sylvanas' ridiculous popularity would have driven the class to high levels of popularity. I guess they just couldn't come up with more than 1 spec.

    Also, Alexstrasza is misspelled, that might debunk it, but I'm not sure.
    Cant believe they are now retconning character names, this is 1000% it

    I'm confused by your reply. Are you agreeing or disagreeing with me? Do you think they would or wouldn't announce something this big (like 10.0) within a day or two?

    They usually post something a few days before any announcements indeed, yet for 9.2 they teased us with a short video on Twitter and the actual Dev Preview came out the day after that.

    The tease on November 10th : https://twitter.com/Warcraft/status/1458495615160172544
    The preview on November 11th : https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/ne...eloper-preview

    Also the 1st Vendor build appeared 5 days before the tease (on November 5th) : https://www.wowhead.com/news/patch-9...tr-soon-324770

    Maybe we'll get something similar this time, who knows.

    Agreeing, I was saying even if they did originally have the 18th as the planned date and that leak is somehow true, there's no way they would just drop 10.0 on us without at least a week's warning for the announcement as a bare minimum.

    They will not announce all of these HUGE things without a proper notice at least one week before. No way.

    I agree that with the amount of similar leaks, it is hard to keep them all apart. I feel like i've seen at least 50 at this point.
    I don't even remember if there has been a leak that is not about dragons, lol. A Light-Void-Yrel leak maybe? I can't remember.

    9.2 is a patch. The announcements that are about to happen in two days are new games, beta, expansion announcement etc. You really cannot compare that.

While they could, in theory, announce something today (2 day heads up), even then it would be a FAIL IMO. The 10.0 announcement should be HYPED up in advance by several days, weeks even. Lastly, I still believe at this point (since we are so close to 9.2 release), 10.0 should wait to be announced until, at the minimum, week of the Jailer fight.
    Heck they announced the Legion announcement one week before and we already knew that they are present at Gamescom.

    Yeah they won't reveal 10.0 like that. Imo we'll have a "Join us on -insert day- to see what's next for World of Warcraft" post, in which our beloved Ion will invite us to come and watch the stream. (and he will say : the team is pretty happy with Shadowlands in overall).

    Exactly. A one day heads up for a patch announcement makes sense. Not for a new expansion. Before Covid, we always knew about Blizzcon months in advance. We always assumed that we would get an announcement for a new expansion at that Blizzcon (the Blizzcon that would happen on a odd year or one year after the current expansion's launch).

    We obviously know that Blizzcon isn't happening; however, I would still assume that we will get a 1 week (minimum) heads up. Anything less would destroy HYPE for the announcement and be an epic fail (IMO). Regardless, today is Wednesday so time will tell.

    Tbh, i believe this is legit leak simply because there is no obligatory supplementary info, that features the expac content.
    Its just simple high quality logo with no elaboration, and this is why i believe it could have accidentally slipped out of some dev's discord or communication app.

    Yeah, I think so too. It simply fits on multiple levels, and like you said, it's not some hyper detailed leak, it's just a simple logo that's incredibly well done. Looking at other logo fakes makes you realize just how well done that logo really is.

    I think it was accompanied by a supposed leak.

    This. I mean there has been a fabricated written leak for Empire of Dragons some days ago, but it came weeks after the logo - that’s what screams FAN MADE. The logo itself is still totally valid.

    No. It was only the logo. The written leak came just one or two days ago.

    This was the only real authentic leak of Shadowlands.

    But what is that second picture? It doesn't look like anything close to what we've seen in Shadowlands. It looks pretty distinctly like a Void Invasion of Azeroth to me. Could just be the part of Bastion that has been invaded by the Void, though. But that being said, considering how much has been revealed about the Void / Light cosmic war, and with Elune being revealed, it would be amiss to ignore all the potential plot setup.

    I know that some of you clicked the link so it made the 5 minutes of editing a leak worth it


    The EoD logo is too unique to be fake imo

    The second image is fake iirc, added together with another fake leak at the time, the first one is from a promotional email leak. Also the Bolvar cinematic leak was also another authentic one.

    And too elaborate, yes. We have cheap logos and we have good ones. Empire of Dragons is one of the best.

    Knowing how much Blizzard like to rain on the parade of its competitors announcements, maybe we'll even see something today haha.

    Empire of dragons logo is 100% fake.
    I will not reply to posts that are non-constructive or contain flaming and/or trolling.
