    I found strange how many were quite pleased with the opening cutscene against the Jailer in which they showed how the Forge of Souls was somehow connected to his "plans", yet now it seems that nobody remembers it. I mean, considering the Frozen Throne is empty and the Scourge is rampant, all this stuff could mean much more. Not every member of that group is a mindless drone.

    To me, Northrend is definitely going to play a part in the upcoming expansion.

    The Dragon Isles are the original home of the Vulpera, expect a lot of Vulpera lore with some japanese touches. It's also the birthplace of the protodrakes and the place that houses the machines that were used to create plant and animal life on Azeroth.

    The new 5 zones are for leveling up while Lordaeron and Quel'Thalas are merely revamped for endgame with world quests.

    Dragon Knight uses polearms and plate armor. Two specs, one tank and one dps spec.

    The story involves the Infinite Dragonflight trying to enter the Halls of Creation in Uldaz and using it to reshape Azeroth.

    Why would promotion material would have the "buy now" button? And why it looks like the "official site" area was pasted from a different image?

    Apart from that, how do you think the Announcement will go? Video or Livestream? Only a trailer / cinematic + gameplay teaser or panels afterwards?

    I for one wish for a long livestream (prerecorded I guess is a given), in the form of how they handled it at gamescom: Show a teaser, a cinematic and the feature trailer, and then talk about the key points in a 1 - 1 1/2 h panel. Afterwards, bring up the alpha so people are invested in the datamining etc.
    I wouldn't be too surprised either but I'm not quite that optimistic. They'd need to get invites out for people etc.

    Dunno, because it's fake?
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    It’s because it’s attempting to hide the fact that it’s hanamura from Overwatch.
    The symbol on the building shown gives it away.

    World of Warcraft: The Flagon Isles

    New core mechanic: Sailing - Player housing finally comes to the World of Warcraft in the form of player owned boats. Players will earn their first boat early on in the story, and gain access to bigger and better boats throughout the expansion. Player boats may be decorated with a variety of cosmetic items, including banners, furniture, and trophies from achievements, new and old. Players will also be able to recruit various NPCs throughout the world to join their crew, granting access to features such as transmogrification, banking, and auction house use onboard their personal ship.

    New social mechanic: Flagon Fights - Players may choose to align themselves with one of five different groups of Flagon Fighters that are scattered across the different inns, bars, taverns, breweries, and pubs of the Flagon Isles. Players can earn new Flagon Fighting themed transmog sets based around the group that they choose to align themselves with, in addition to gaining access to alcohol themed buffs unique to each Flagon Fight.

    New profession: Piracy - Players will be able to learn the new Piracy profession, allowing them to "invade" other player's boats or NPC boats to gain access to new treasures. Piracy PvP is opt-in only, but offers unique rewards unavailable in PvE Piracy.

    New Class: Tinker - Players gain access to a new player class upon purchase, or pre-purchase, of The Flagon Isles. This class, the Tinker, has access to three specializations. Tailor (Melee DPS), Soldier (Ranged Tank), Spy (Melee/Ranged DPS). The Tinker class wears mail armor, and is primarily focused on the intellect stat for the Spy specialization, agility for the Tailor specialization, and strength for the Soldier specialization.

    The story revolves around The Nailer, an ancient, immortal pirate forged by the Original Creators. The Nailer's original identity is lost to time, but his nickname was earned for his habit of nailing his victims to the sides of the ships under his command. The Nailer leads a faction of fearsome undead pirates known as The Shadowhands, which he was able to raise and control using the secret lost art of Flagon magic. The Nailer, after having been locked away in slumber deep beneath the sea for over 9,000 years, finally awakes as a result of the attack against Azeroth. The Alliance and Horde must put aside their differences to discover the mysteries of the Flagon Isles, and defeat The Nailer once and for all.

    Classes aren't really designed like that. Demon Hunters use warglaives because their entire identity is built around being warglaive users. But even DKs, who were very firmly of the "runeblade" category, were made "uses any 2H or 1H mace, sword, axe".

    Also, 0% chance of them deliberately adding "Dragon Knight" to the game, when there's already a "knight" named class that also uses that exact same shorthand. They couldn't get around it with DH, because that's what they were already called in warcraft before hunters were even a thing, but here they'd just be arbitrarily choosing to call it Dragon Knight for no benefit and a bunch of problems, when they could call it dozens of other iterations of Dragonsworn/blessed/bound/whatever.

    i must say, that Wrathion model from 8.3 really does just work it's ass off in these reveals. Cannot remember who actually took the time to clean up the first model to remove the earrings and such, but damn this model really is making the rounds in all these fake leaks.

    Those were rhetorical questions, come on...

    Although if by some crazy coincidence they go with that awful asian stuff again I'll probably burn my computer. Can't even start to imagine facing pandas again.

    It won't only use polearms, it's just the trademark, like Demon Hunters use warglaives.

    And the abbreviation the community can use could be DRK for Dragon Knight and DK for Death Knight.

    Some reasons people come up with for why something can't happen don't actually matter as much as people think.

    I did that on this one. Changed the horns shape a bit as well to match the more typical dragon-crest, rather than Wrathion's specific Neltharion-like horns.

    NVM ^^ looks like you meant what the other fellow linked. my bad

    I was actually thinking of that picture, so there is that.

    Still, quite a few who seem to treat that model like free real estate when it comes to leaks. I guess only time will tell whether it will actually be used for a HD resin of the old dragon models, wouldn't really be shocked if it ended up being the case.
