    I can understand if someone posts an accompanying image or """proof""" or something, but why the hell even allow the sheer flood we see constantly. What separates a clear joke thread that gets instantly closed from a thread that gets to 10 pages that is so out there that it might as well be a joke thread anyway?
    Leaks are what bring out the authoritarian in me. I'd be banning left and right.

    The only other faction was Naga.
    Play the campaigns please.

Others being passive aggressive and intentionally writing disappointing ones.
    If not for the new HS expansion looking genuinely good I probably would have skipped out of this leak season entirely. Between how bad SL was, how good Endwalker was, the scandal and how it was communicated, my faith in Blizzard was at an all-time low. But now I'm kinda interested how they attempt to crawl back out of the dump.

    Well Anduin or no, the Worgen seem much more loyal to the Night Elves than stormwind. The Battle for Darkshore also showed as much. So they could make up one faction.

    The Alliance would be everyone else. on the Alliance

    Illidari would be Blood Elves and naga

    The rest are pretty self explanatory.

    Seriously. At the very least you get a quarantine going.

    Speaking of, we don't even have a spreadsheet this time do we? There's literally too many. A well made bingo card would only fit maybe 20% of the possibilities.

    I think this is the first time since Mists -> WoD pre-Scrolls of Lore leak that there's so much uncertainty. Every other expac had wildly public and obvious leaks (Blood Elves in an early released gaming magazine, Velen painting at the E3 stage, Northrend herbs in game files flagged expansion02, Leipzig Gaming Convention listing Wrath early, the massive Cata leak months in advance, Mists trademark...) or a clear next step (Gul'dan fuckery, Sargeras sword, Sylvanas farting away).

    At BEST we have the Tirisfal encryptions but that can literally just be allied race content. Turalyon mention isn't anything new because it's just a reinforcement of the status quo.

    We have the LivingWorld strings and the stables stuff.

    If they introduce a class (Tinker obv), they should allow it to become available with a prepurchase in 9.2.5 so people can have their new class (Tinkers obv) leveled up in time and find out if htey want to main them for the next expansion, also allow them a chance to tune them a bit if needed in some older content.

    Hey, forgot about the stables. Housing sign?! Probably not.

    LivingWorld is so up in the air. I still think it's internal for environmental flags. But yeah it's something, especially accompanied by a likely CE mount associated with life.

    Yeah but that is vague. What would LivingWorld be? A revamp of a less cataclysmic Azeroth. Or a Living world like in Guild Wars 2 which is basically the main story there?

    For classes at earliest I see it being prepatch like Legion.

    For races it can swing either way depending if they are a new race or established in lore.

    For ARs again same, depenind if they are related to current or next expansion (Like how in Legion we got 4 with prepurchase, but Zandalari were left for later)

    Classes require so much work, the earliest we'd get them is pre-patch.

    They've shown extensively they've improved their pipeline in adding races, they could easily potentially add any upcoming races early if wanted, depending on how much work is required and how much work is done.

    Or they could add clas skins wich require no tuning or getting used to.

    Class Skins would still be rough for one reason: any alterations to the mechanics or core rotation, including new abilities and talents, would mean having to alter any associated skins. It doubles the work in some cases for classes even if it means no problems with tuning or anything else associated with a new class.

    Not crapping on it, class skins are probably in my top 5 features if it allows for stuff we should've had years ago (blue mage fire, Necromancers on Demo, Dark Rangers, etc.) but it definitely won't be fire and forget.

    It's a compromise though when you consider that, if tier sets return full time, a new class is that much more work per raid tier.

    Always thought it was so stupid that MoP prepatch did not add pandaren and monks for those who had prepurchased. It was the prepatch with the least content (a single scenario) and it definitely affected monk population since Monks did not even start at a high level.

    This. People can go a few expansions before another squish.

    While I don't like the idea of Tinkers, Artificers sound far more appealing. With a more Ethereal/Broker theme. Hyperlight Sparks, Stasis Traps, Rift Blasts stuff like that. Tinkering could even be a spec that focuses on gadgets and stuff like that.

    Maybe I'm the only one but I'm kinda over the level cap increases. I feel ilevel increasing alone for vertical progression + some sort of account wide seasonal progress bar makes way more sense.

    I feel like that's more Corgis Unleashed.

    A decade later and it's still showing up.
