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

    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.

    As long as we unlock Bolvar customization options for getting healed by the 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?

    Wasn't she stabbed by a corrupted Tear of Elune?

    So I might be completely late to this, but... did anyone here notice that the new Hillsbrad skybox was removed?

    Try to replace "dragonflight" in the URL with a random word and see if it changes the code to match it. Could just be some kind of automated thing (assuming this is even real and I'm not being Late April Fools'd).

    Doesn't matter what word you use, Dragonflight always appears in the source code.
