    Keep in mind this expansion is taking forever to come out, all the way into 2023 so it's entirely possible they could pull it off with a single spec as described.

    I can't believe I got to see another expansion name leak live again...

    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.

    Sighing with relief at the fact that the new epxansion is def Dragon-centered and not an underground expansion.

    I think something similar to Brewmaster stagger but for healing would be appropriate. I have no idea how exactly it would be done but that's what comes to mind when I think fire-healer. You won't die and your wound will be mended but it's going to hurt and be unsightly until the process is complete.

    Wouldn't it be possible for the to still use a working title when building stuff? I am not too knowledgeable about that process, so I won't claim any certainty. But even if placeholder is unlikely. I still think the leak isnt a certain confirmed leak.

    I still think the attached leak is fake.

    So many leaks this season it seems like just a lucky guess. Now that we know a name and a theme I imagine the leaks are going really go into pure pandemonium.

    If Blizzard did that, it would mean they're throwing everything at the wall, and hoping something sticks. Adding four half-baked classes that they'll have to deal with forever doesn't seem like a good idea.

    I can't quite swallow:

    Four single-specialization classes. That's a whole lot of extra balancing and work for such little payoff. Blizzard has also never added a class that didn't very strongly connect to the central theme. A new class is a huge box feature—I could never imagine Blizzard sacrificing that for as little as four pseudo-classes. It's a hype-killer.

    Being retconned out of Order Hall leadership.

    The dates. They completely contradict everything we have.

    Undermine in an expansion otherwise pretty solidly focused around upper Eastern Kingdoms.

    Chromatus is likely to be a major antagonist, but I can't see the box art villain being a character that only ever existed as a book character.

    Wardens using Arcane and Holy magic, as well as being a skin for Demon Hunters. Wardens have always been more like Plate-wearing Rogues conceptually. They've never used Arcane or Holy magic aside from the teleportation. They seem more associated with Shadow Magic through Avatar of Vengeance.

    Finally, the general age of the leak makes everything seem unlikely. I think it's just a coincidence. The name is based on an established concept in lore and is a very easy guess to accidentally come upon. It's not as specific as, say, "Empire of Dragons". It's a single compound word that's very easy to presuppose based solely on the preexisting lore prevalence.

    Omg an actual real leak. Dragonflight. I buy that as an expansion name.
    In4 this is all trolling 'cause I know nothing about code or web design.

    New race and class or at least one or the other.

    I'd love that leak but it seems too extensive to be real.

    These wishlist leak larps just keep getting worse

    New class seems more popular.



    Class Skins seems more practical.





    All depends on whether or not Blizzard wants the short-term or long-term.

    I don't think the actual text leak is real, because Dragonflight is generic enough of a name where it could just be a lucky guess

  15. #34395
    Just tried the link and yeah, I'm seeing it too.

    If we go by this forum, class skins were more popular than 4th specs or new classes, if I recall correctly. But yeah, I assume for the average player, something brand new is more attractive.

    This is probably true, the fact that the name got leaked is pretty amazing this far out from the announcement.

    One has to wonder how long has that code been there.

    It's real, folks.
