    On topic,


    Who do we think is going to narrate the cinematic?


    I think it's 85% chance to be Alexstraza. No more Sylvanas monologues thank goodness.

    You're so right. That one's my favorite too. I also like the elven styled armor, but I'm biased.

    I really hope they shake things up instead of rehashing the Legion ideas again. I just really don't want to join a dragon covenant.

    I just think Ebonhorn is quite neat.

    If she is indeed on the box, and it is looking likely, it's safe to say it will be her. Wrathion is a contender just because he is our most recently relevant and currently prettiest dragon model (in both forms), but I would say Alex at this point.

    I wouldn't put too much faith into the MMO-C Dragonflight "leak" from 2-8-2022. However, my biggest "want" is for less systems that promote FOMO, flying Dragon Isles continent, a rich story, and new/innovate forms of gameplay.

    Perhaps. Maybe he would prefer to run along a beach in slow mo, though.

    I also feel Alex is probably the most iconic warcraft dragon character outside of Deathwing so it makes sense for it to be her.

    "It's such a Blizzard thing to do." Is such a weird take to me, maybe they just decided to give her new armor because her character model is old af and they want to give the aspects a fresh design.
    Good character design >>>>> dragon bikini

    I think given that Valeera's latest model still exposes her thighs and cleavage, the character artists don't actually hate exposed skin as much as people have been led to believe. They just want to be more creative than simply swinging the midriff bat around on every character like the old-school artists did, and in almost every case I can think of the new designs have simply been more appealing and character-appropriate than the original. BfA Jaina is, in my opinion, way more unique than her original design while also being more attractive. No midriff or bikini required.

    Yeah. This was something they thought of doing for cataclysm (the dragonman concept), but ended up not doing it. And they usually get around to doing things they didn't get the chance in the past.
    With the way they use animation assets for each race to create new ones, I'd think the worgen seems like a perfect fit, since their animations didn't get used for any allied race.
    Transforming seems like it would make a lot of sense too.
    I guess we're due for a new class for some time too. So something related to the dragons might be coming? They are very rich in potential for different specs relating to different aspects.
    And as someone has said before, with Wrathion and Ebonhorne, it seems both Alliance and Horde have characters that can introduce a playable faction.

    I wonder if we'll meet more Drogbar in this expansion considering their link to Neltharion and the Black Dragonflight?

    This is the first time in all these pre-expansion speculation threads that I feel like I contributed anything worthwhile.

    Something LOTRO did a while back with their addition of Beornings is that they made them a class -and- a race. If you wanted to be the Beorning class, you had to be the Beorning race, and vice versa.

    I can see that happening with Dragonkin and a Dragonkin class, but I also have my doubts. If they add a Dragonkin class, it'd be available to most, if not all races. And if they add a Dragonkin race, they would not lock it to a single class.

    Ysera's story was kind of resolved and put to rest in Shadowlands though. She was pulled from her resurrection pod too early in order to save her life and thus was "reborn" into Ardenweald and bound to the Winter Queen and her realm. I can't really see her being that involved except as a proxy to her daughter's future development.

    I had to make an account to mention this, but considering the golden trees in that pic of Alex, does anyone remember that thread with the leaked concept arts someone posted? I think they were deleted before most people could see them, but it mentioned a golden forest.

    Honestly, I'm of the same opinion. I would kill for a Thrall styled tier set for my Orc Shaman. I don't know I just have this headcanon where imagine that some shamans go around barefooted to feel more in touch with the elements. I really hope we get the night elf set we saw the sentinels wearing during BFA. It'd totally be asking too much, but more racial themed armor for each class would be awesome. Sadly, not enough time or resources for such a venture.

    I'm sure we'll get covenant-esque dragonflight choice with no power player attached to it, cosmetic only and freely swappable and a 2.0 version of Torghast.
