I wish we had that problem more often.
    MoP rep was okay in 5.1. The Dominance Offensive/whatever the Alliance version was quests are still the peak of rep-gated storylines. 5.0 was dreadful though, what with axing the daily cap so you could kill 10 mogu, to be sent to a second place to kill 15 mogu to go back into a cave to kill 10 more mogu and 1 big mogu. Killing the Golden Lotus daily quest givers was the highlight of SoO.

    It's okay, the real explosion of dragons was in our hearts all along.

    If you keep memeing it hard enough, you might get a dungeon named Explosion of Dragons like Eye of Azshara.

    The real question is will they finally update the default dragon and drake model?

    They've used the same models for 18 years, which seems insane to me since dragons are the most iconic fantasy monster.
    Like they keep designing cool new dragons like stormdrakes but the classic models haven't been touched since vanilla...

    It's a dragon expansion so I'm pretty sure they will. Would make no sense not to. Legion updated a ton of demon models too.

    Is that the one where the WoD logo was behind him?

    Maybe it's that I had so much time at the time so I could literally play all day Just loved MoP launch, kept me so busy. Mediocre raids though. ToT and SoO made up for it.

    Then do a neutral race of Black dragons because Wrathion is sending us out to fix the divide between the Horde and Alliance since Anduin is out of commission and he feels he owes it to him.

    Have the Black dragons tie into cross faction and give it lore weight not just a gameplay mechanic.
    Black Dragon's could be represented as a new 4th spec for shaman Earthwarder tanking.

    I don't think there is a chance that does not happen. Really the pineapple tails were bad for Vanilla even.

    If you're talking about the Dragonflight stuff, the post on the front page of MMO-C explains it pretty well. If you mean anything that happened after that was leaked, I don't know, I also just woke up.

    Honestly the only way I would be *happy* with Shadowlands AR's. Not because I dislike them, but because I'd rather the focus remain on the Azeroth races, that exist on the mortal plane, after a whole expansion on another realm of existence.

    Shhh, don't give it away. We can get this done if we push it hard before dungeon names are finalized.

    Does Alex have any consort left? I think Krasus was the last.
    All the aspects need their own ships! Wrathion will have a hard time since the only other sane black dragons are male. Merithra is alone thought there is at least one male green dragon who has constantly been around since classic (Itharius). Kalecgos is no longer with Jaina, I think he and Tyri were promised to each other but both ended up spending all their time with humans (Tyri with Jorad). The Bronze flight is the only one with a rather large complement of characters and both their Aspect and Prime Consort still alive (though Soridormi was supposed to get killed a while back).

    Also pretty hyped for what's coming on the PTR.
    Feels nice to be excited about the game
    Yeah, I haven't been this excited for an expansions theme since Legion.

    A picture of what seems to be the expansion keyart and logo was leaked. The name in question was confirmed to be (something) actually blizzard related and probably the expansion by virtue of the html on Blizzard's website referencing both Dragonflight.blizzard.com and also listing normal heroic and epic versions of "Dragonflight" (likely the purchase editions).

    The picture is further evidenced by the armor Alexstrasza is wearing in it matching with some (up till this point) unknown armor textures that were in PTR builds a while back.

    There is another older leak that also uses the same name, but nothing to suggest that it's necessarily real and didn't just happen to guess the name correctly.

    Pretty big departure to not have a nameplate for the expansion's title.

    Maybe not a dungeon name but I can see Blizzard putting in something like that as a dungeon ability.

    Empire of Dragons seems like it was the big fake leak this year, so they'll probably do something with that instead. Maybe a patch name.

    I still dislike the fact that it's using the BfA logo's colors.
