    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.

    This was already shared here earlier. Originally posted on Reddit, presumably also by you.

    It's a decent fanfic and the HTML editing isn't terrible. I actually think the fact that you used the datamined Green dragon texture for the background was a nice touch.

    But it falls apart very quickly with the other visuals, like 1) the logo which takes five steps backwards from the more innovative designs Blizzard has gone for after WoD*, 2) having black text on a background where white would look more readable, and 3) as others pointed out, one of the images is from OW.

    There are also some other things that wouldn't make sense if this was a real leak, like how one of the features advertised is "new character customization" and yet it doesn't even show any of the new customization. (Also, this was already a feature for SL so advertising "new character customization" as a major expansion feature back-to-back seems a bit silly.)

    * If you look at the logos for Legion, BfA, and SL, you'll notice that the borders of each logo look vastly different. BfA and SL in particular took this up to a whole new level. You've done some changes to your logo, and that's a start, but 90% of it uses the same template as the older logos (Vanilla to WoD) which makes it look outdated.

    also (as much as I would kill for playable Vrykul) the Vrykul models in that leak are wearing bits and pieces of armor ripped from Sonya's HoTS model as well as the HOTS Leoric Vrykul skin. Clearly fak as all hell

    Gotta give it to the guy. 99% of leakers post their shit then fly away. Dude is actually sticking to this horrible crap.

    So process of designing the game contains having these horrible, low res pictures with Frankenstein monster type of characters and clearly and shoddily shopped art 18 days before official reveal?

    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.

    Yeah, there's a ton of Heroes stuff in those photoshops.

    Clearly they were used because HOTS died a while back...

    I miss Heroes.

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.
    Better villain than the Jailer /thread

    But tbh I do hope they come up with a new villain out of the blue, that isn't an existance threatening bad guys but actually wanted to do good. Like with many important figures in the leadership or culture of each faction being away for SL surely new villains would take that opportunity to arise, and pirates make sense since Jaina is the Admiral of one of the biggest Navies and she was MIA on Azeroth

    Some reasons people come up with for why something can't happen don't actually matter as much as people think.
    Not saying it won't only use polearms. I'm saying that there's no reason for it to be the trademark, when even DK's "trademark" was watered down, and dragon knights aren't an established thing to have a trademark in the first place. They aren't going to forcibly build an animation kit suited to polearms for a brand new role that, shoehorning it into one weapon type to look decent in combat.

    And they aren't going to sit around and go "what's a good name for this dragon class?" "Well we have a whole lot of options, how about the one that's nearly identical to an existing class"

    Not a matter of "can't happen", it's a matter of "only an idiot would".

    Yeah, I imagine a dragon class would 100% have a healer spec. One of the most important Dragon Aspects is the Aspect of Life itself.

    I'm curious what it would look like though. Canonically the breath of the red dragons has healing properties, right? Would be kind of funny to scorch all your party members with happy healing fire.

    Could make it a HoT called [Bolvarized] that swaps their model with Bolvar's until their health hits 100%.

    Imagine stealing a fake leak for extremely minor attention on the internet. This has to be done with malicious intent.

    I've got to say that the original Living World leak, save for the horrendous logo, was pretty well-composed and I do spy a few original assets on the website itself (though they are still too aesthetically-reminiscent of Shadowlands for my tastes), so I've got to give credit for the effort, even if it's not as high-effort as Empire of Dragons was.

    I'd say if I had the artistic talent, the first thing I'd try to do is change around the website formatting more. That would make it more convincing—we've never had two identical hype websites for an expansion.

    I'd be down for a region inspired by Japan. As much as I hope for Dragon Isles, I'd get a kick out of a place with Japanese flair too.

    Pandaren don't really need any redeeming, just love from the writers, but I would really like to see a more samurai, Sengoku-era inspired Pandaren that was hinted at with their first concepts waaaaaay back in the late 90s and early 2000s.

    As long as Blizzard wants to work in China, using their favored animal together with anything Japanese is absolutely a no go. I do think however that if they revisited Pandaria, the Jinyu could easily work with a strong Japan theme; they have a lot of potential and imo were fairly underused compared to the Hozen.

    The Jinyu would work very well with that, really. They have a look, and their lore is a blank slate as it is. Lots of room for adaptation.

    I dunno, though. You're right about the China part, but a faerie can wish.



    EDIT: WHY ARE MY IMAGES SO SMALLLLLL, did MMO-C image imbed rules change since the last time I was here?
