    Also correct me if I'm mistaken, this is the same way we knew 100% that WoD was the correct title before the reveal right? Like we had that leak with the bizarre "Grom is called Grommash to avoid confusing his name with a bike", but then like within a few days of Blizzcon (or earlier that day?) someone found the url that lead nowhere? Or am I insane and inventing false memories?

    I think she looks great in that art, I have no problem with that if it's the model they're going with. Sylvanas's first belly-cover model was stupid because it didn't fit with the rest of her armor at all, lol.

    ...I just don't like the logo. At all.

    Not false memories, just misremembering!

    It was BFA that had the URL that lead nowhere. Discovered just hours before Blizzcon. I was there, I'd know.

    WoD was a logo leak in a pre-Blizzcon interview.

    I'm fine with the logo, if that ends up being it. It's pretty different but I don't think that's a bad thing at all.

    It was always a coinflip between World of Warcraft: Dragon Isles or World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. Seems Blizzard are starting to prefer their minimalistic / one word expansion titles. Probably better for advertising?

    Why? Ysera is gone, she is bound to Ardenweald now.

    The Winter Queen will give to us (I mean to a NPC or only Ally players) a new seed, so we can plant a new World Tree, that will require probably the blessing by Alexstrasza and Ysera's daughter (maybe even Elune?)... easy-peasy.

    Or maybe will be not so easy, expecially because by now there is only one Tree remain and maybe the Dragons are busy in Northrend...

    Aha! It's so different every time what ends up found that I just mash all this recollections together. Thanks for clarifying!

    They could have spiced it up with some flames given that it's a dragon expansion. Even a small change like making the planet/orb thing red instead of blue would have made it look a bit more interesting imo. Right now it just looks like a differently-shaped BfA logo to me.

    Can anyone find any leaks from before the February "Dragonflight" one that mention Chromatus as the big bad because I think there have been a few and I'm curious to see if this was the first to pick him as the main villain.

    Alexstraza's in particular has always been... just bad. Like from a design standpoint it was always just ... silly. And that's the kind word for it.

    It has big dragon wings. At least it has that going for it!

    Dragonflight sounds neat, but I miss the longer expansion names. But as you said, it probably is better for advertising/marketing. Long expansion titles like "Wrath of the Lich King" just don't seem to fly these days.

    I think the fact that Alextrazsa is sadly covered up with that new armor is proof enough that this is the real thing xD I hope it is like one of the leaks that had the same name, because then it means that class skins and housing are coming !_! fingers crossed.

    I guess so! I might even change my mind once we get a better look at it. It's hard to make out much detail from a blurry phone picture.

    reminds me of the time when we were typing names into the website hours before Blizzcon and seeing which one would hyphenate itself. That's how we got BFA.
    Damn sorry, I should have read further before I made my previous comment considering you already answered it for me here haha

    I still think the Kosak interview blurb eats this though, even though it was leaked mere minutes before the announcement vs *checks calendar* two weeks.

    Since she's technically a mother they should give her fiery stretch marks. That'll stop people from turning it into a debate.

    Has anybody found that Alexstrasza pic elsewhere? I've been scouring google images and deviantart (don't go there, it's terrifying) but nothing yet.
