    Thanks dear!

    As a little madeleine de Proust guys... This is the first image of a hype train ever created on these forums (if I am not mistaken) for 2014's
    Blizzcon



    Enjoy the nostalgia while it kicks in. We've come a long way in terms of hype trains though!

    Calia, Darion, Taelia and Thalyrssa are all present in front of the Arbiter but then disappear for her actual sentence. I wonder if there's any particular reason for that or maybe they just didn't care enough to see what happens to Sylvanas.

    I would of at least liked a line from Thalyrssa or some dialogue between her the Night Elves over Teldrassil.

    Not in my eyes. The more control he gets, the shittier the game becomes.

    They could do that now and it would be awesome. Turn Tirisfal and Gilneas into 3 zones each and I'm happy.

    So it can still happen?

    Honestly if 10.0 ends up being titled The Dark Below, I will resub. Feel free to screenshot this and hold me to my word.

    They used it already for a Destiny game so no, it's not happening as the TM is already in use?

    Honestly I would like to see this alongside with the reduction of zone number (merging zones into bigger areas in EK and Kali).

    Another wish I have is to create a unified Azeroth. Bring everything to the same map. Revamp cata (or MoP) and earlier stuff and do some continents on release and then other in patches. Not just having Maelstrom, EK, Kali, Northrend, Pandaria, Broken Isles, KulTiras and Zandalar on the same map, but also all the instanced off islands (like from the island expeditions) and other stuff like that.

    I like how Pelagos is the new arbiter,, decide to not send any other souls in the Maw.



    and during the cinematic the souls behind him are still going in to the maw.

    But under who is the trademark? ABK or Bungie?

    I don't think The Dark Below is specific enough for that to make sense. Like sure if somebody releases another Mists of Pandaria or Warlords of Draenor, sue their balls off. But I doubt it would make sense to trademark every title without the World of Warcraft part otherwise nobody ever anywhere could use Legion or Cataclysm as their title even though those are super vague and in no way specific to WoW.

    Cant check ingame now to confirm, but dont the anima streams in the skybox all start from below oribos? Like the thingy in middle is just to view all souls that pass into SL before they go off to their own realm.

    Also from what other people said the stream in the middle seems to move slower.

    Plus 1 for unified Azeroth. It makes no sense that you need to enter a freakin portal to reach Quel'Thalas just because it was added in TBC.

    And one of the major points for me for WoW has been how throughout a continent the zones don't have a loading screen compared to other MMOs i tried. I would like to see that go a step further.

    But if needed and disc size isnt an issue keep the old instanced off zones through portals or chromie

    That would be an absolute dream come true.

    I think it might also be because Lordaeron is one of the worst areas in WoW as far as telling us the history of the area as well as representing the lore.
    Immediately I want to say that I don't mean the zone questing is bad. The Forsaken questlines from Cata are among the best quest writing in WoW and do a marvelous job of building up the Forsaken as a culture (that later sources completely retcon).
    We know very little of the actual structure of the Seven Kingdoms. The way the place is represented is also so weird. WHERE was Alterac? Was it just a mountain pass? Where exactly is Alterac Valley meant to be? Could we ever have Quel'thalas joined with the world and thus actually have the north coast of Lordaeron (and is Stratholme a port? If not does it have an adjacent port? Where do the Forsaken have a port, what with their fairly extensive navy?). It also fails to really give us much lore on those Kingdoms. I still have no idea why there is no Human category in archeology.

    Compare them to orcs (so, so much lore), trolls, elves, dwarves, we just don't get an equal amount of human history in the game which is so weird given they are EVERYWHERE (the tauren and goblins have it even worse).

    Have you ignored the rest of the reply? What would be the point of the central piece in oribos if it was only for the rare maw souls. I think all souls pass through there before shooting off to their realm judged by the arbiter

    Oh hell yes. Like I understand why FFXIV put in load screens, but nowadays it just makes me feel I'm not exploring an open world. (And indeed I'm not. Kinda). The openness is one of the things I still appreciate in WoW.

    I feel Eastern Kingdoms in particular really needs that. To actually fit things. I mean if you tried to make Lordaeron, Gilneas and Stromgarde the size of Boralus, you need more space (Lordaeron should be even bigger tbh).

    Honestly what I'd love from a revamp is to a) possibly merge zones and b)maybe actually ADD zones.
    Some places in Azeroth make no sense whatsoever. Primary example for me is Northern Kalimdor. There really would need to be some zone hugging Moonglade and Winterspring helping to ease the elevation. And don't blame it on the Sundering; cliffs like those would have just collapse over ten thousand years. And I'd also love some underground zones. As a huge Underdark fan, I just want them. Hyjal Barrows should extend from Felwood to Azshara. A significant cavern system is beneath Stonetalon (and we don't even have a dungeon). Terramok could be a zone. Blackrock Caverns could be a zone.

    Upscaled Lordaeron, Gilneas, Quel'Thalas, Barrens or Feralas... what I wouldn't give for those
