    Idk about void and light but I’m certain we will have a conflict with Life

    I'd prefer for her not to. Could be a fine time to meet her, or at least get a bit of direct contact in some way, but I definitely think that her hatching sounds like the end of WoW, or at least the start of the final expansion.

    We just prevented her death and that's it.
    Infinites feel like the most obvious candidate but it also screams "prototype for smaller events with slow progression" rather than necessarily being a capital H hook.

And because I'm already thinking of tauren, I would kill for nature themed glyphs for my druid so that she can have hurricanes and vines and insects and greenery again =( I actually switched her to feral recently because I just can't jive with the astral/moon stuff on my tauren. It's great on my night elf but just so out of place with my poor cow!
    Sun spells for tauren are also on my wishlist!

    I'd love some moon spells for night elf priests and paladins if they ever come, also some blood knight spells for blood elf paladins.

    Dark ranger spells for marksman undead, humans and elves + a skin if a dark ranger class will never truly happen.

    Same for warlocks with a necromancer skin over, though that's a little bit more of a big ask I feel and would rather a new class. But would settle for a skin and a class name change.

    I can't remember the post but a user on here compiled all of his ideas on this a few months or so ago with pictures and although I didn't agree with or like them all most of them were pretty good and an interesting read.

    We've actually got a few of these—we also never resolved the whole Ethereal invasion plot in Stormwind and Orgrimmar.

    The mechanical dragonling can’t be seen as a hint just because it’s an anniversary reward because we had a corgi reward as well

    The dragon pack has a cat pack brother

    We can’t deny that the collector’s edition is giving a drake mount

    Now I do want dragon isles but I’m not going to call everything a hint
    Again, take those clues and add them to BFA's Dragon clues;

    +Alexstraza vs Vexonia at Vermillion Redoubt
    +The Dragon Flights empowering the Heart of Azeroth
    +Vexonia ushering in a new dragonflight (Voidwing)
    +Dragons on Island Expeditions
    +Wrathion's return
    +Dragon Isles mentioned for first time in lore
    +Wrathion: The Black Emperor fight
    +Clutch of Voidwing eggs found inside N'zoth
    +Uncorrupted Voidwing Mount (Void Dragon)
    +Steamscale Incinerator Mount (Mech Dragon)

    And that's why people think something based on dragons is next.

    Yes.

    I don't think it a particularly interesting plot, but I'm just so tired of cliffhangers that don't get resolved for a decade or so. Just deal with it and move on. Come up with new mysteries instead of dangling the same ones in front of us for eternity.

    If An'she and Elune help us regrow on Azeroth it makes sense for sun and moon animals to pop up.

    Saying it's a hint is being generous with those kinds of mounts though. The Legion one was probably the only where there was a clear logical outcome your could take from it, being a Nightsaber (Night Elf) and Arcane. More often the mount is more confusing the more you look at it, like the Vulpin seeming like it was ice themed.

    All we can know for sure is that somewhere in 10.0 we will see enemies who use the same model as the mounts, just without the armor.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Doesn't that inherently suggest the destruction of the setting, or at least a major hook to push us to more cosmic plots?

    Those 2, including the faery dragon pet and celestial mog (emerald drake), are the reason why i think Life is gonna be a major theme alongside dragons.
    They are too Lunar/Solar themed for it not to be, if we take them as direct hints.

    Considering that we know its on Azeroth, but there aren't pheonixes and giant cats there, they will likely be from Dragon Isles.

    It also fits the reverse Cataclysm theme of rebirth if Life (and Light, probably with the Scarlets/Turalyon) are the main themes next to the dragons this time.

    So instead of Elements + Destructive Dragon it would be Constructive Dragon(s) + Life and Light.

    Conversation Shift:

    Aside from the Setting (we've been discussing this one forever), what would you like to see in the Cinematic AND Features Trailer?

    Personally, I LOVED the Shadowlands Cinematic but didn't care for the "barebones" features trailer. IF Dragons are coming (teehee), I would love an awesome cinematic similar to how Pandaria was unveiled from its mists. If the Dragon Isles are floating, hidden, or from another time (Bronze Dragon influence), it would be really cool to see a cinematic showing some of that. As for the features trailer, I want to see more than dungeons and raid, new level cap, etc. Show us cool new features, progression systems tied LESS to borrowed power, something NEW/creative, please!

    What are your thoughts??

    I don't even remember that for the life of me. I believe you, but it's such a blur how many points are dropped awkwa

    The literal bare minimum is "don't waste my motherfucking time by sharing new zones individually like in SL's."

    They had nothing and they knew it. "New Zone: Revendreth" is not a selling point. It's a base expectation.

    Cinematic for a revamp should be something like classic's that shows the various biomes being restored and races doing their racial stuff there, then ending on the Dragon Isles if they are the setting and showing them reveal from the clouds.

    Features should show revamped zones and/or housing if it's included, and THEN the power systems.

    The cat is probably just a beast you run across in one of the new zones.

    Shadowlands' features trailer was pathetic. For 10.0 features trailer I am expecting at least the following points:

    - New class.
    - New race / class combos.
    - New continent / revamped world + new zones.
    - New talent system / progression system.
    - New (something related to proffesions).
    - New side system (secondary activity like Pet Battle System).
    - New Torghast like dungeon / new type of dungeon.

    That is for the trailer but I expect huge changes across the board. An expansion as good as Legion will not save the game in the long-term if WoW is not simpler and easier to start on as a new player.
    Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

    Sure, but it has some pretty interesting implications for the setting.

    Most people have considered Dragon Isles to be "One Zone Per Flight" but a sun themed kitty doesn't really fit that.

    It would actually fit a Red Dragonflight forest zone pretty well, the cat itself is reminiscent of Alexstrasza to some extent.

    Not only is that a good point, but it makes me realize they may reuse red trees from a Red Dragonflight zone for Quel'thalas.
