    Galakrond creates a humanoid form for himself thanks to his new power gain from being revived and is like a big hulking vrykrul king and has a few dragon underlings with a focus on spreading his version of the scourge and the ebon blade proves once again to be completely useless

    Then we have the situation with the infinite where instead of Nozdormu becoming Moruzond because he is afraid of his death it is instead because he was about to die and it would have killed chromie as well so he stops which causes his transformation. When he first saw his death he didnt really put any kind of feelings towards that random dragon but over the years he now cares for her.

    I woke up to a very long, detailed speculation thread. Keep at it! Very exciting! We just may pass 2000 pages much earlier than I initially predicted.

    All three? isn't that just a bit excessive?

    This remind me, how do we rank to other speculation threads in terms of length?

    I've been thinking about that Dragonflight leak, & I really want and like the idea of 'micro-classes' & 'class skins' & its actually to do with tinkers and necromancers. Hear me out on this.

    OK, so, Blizzard only puts one new class in every 4 years? right? usually? Look at it this way, if you really wanted Dark Ranger every time we're due a new class (rightly or wrongly) then the peeps who want X or Y are hopeful. Then it turns out to be Z or no new class. So you're back to another 4 year wait. Class skins are a pretty solid way of giving people classes that would probably never be implemented about gutting other classes (I was Demo from Cata...) & I also feel a micro-class with one role and spec can't be as hard as a whole new class with 2/3/4 specs to balance and design around, plus, when the expac drops having a glut of new hotness to roll & level would be neat, I always treat leveling new classes as an activity I really WANT to do but I need to work on my main, I'll roll him/her and mess around but once I'm done with the current patch content then I'll look to level, since I left feb last year I'd love the idea of new alts to refresh my memories with, and the nostalgic kick of the old expacs.

    I also really REALLY want a new class to start at 1, so I can do adventure isles and Northrend again, on something new. This all said, Le Conceptuel did make far too many valid points, that leak is probably more bullshit than fact,

    Not really, you want a different end boss for each tier after all.

    I really don't think they'd blow up Dala, especially after Teldrassil and Undercity, if there was an opportunity for that it was back in Legion. Also it would mean destroying two order halls, that would be sad

    It would, but it could explain why the fuck the Uncrowned are in Undermine instead.

    And you assume Blizzard would do it justice because?

    True, it could also justify the Kirin Tor being involved in either rebuilding Dalaran in EK, or as some kind of vagabond mage order. I could get behind that, but I'd miss Dalaran terribly

    Yes, I did quote both several times over the last few pages. Merithra and the five dragonflights trying to elevate their Aspects again.

    So Merithra is evil?

    Not necessarily, but encouraged by Ysera to become the new Aspect of her flight, she and the other dragons might do something that either turn their little party wrong OR serves the Old Gods in the long term! It could be an honest mistake from the dragons

    somewhere between the forces of light there should be a disguised female Nathrezim (If it is not Dreadlord, is it Dreadlady?).
    Maybe it is Merithra?

    Maybe. Also she was kinda locked inside Ahn Quiraj for many years, so maybe she's kinda crazy.

    It would be pretty generic if another city is blown up. We want cities to be updated.. not blown up because they think its cool. Well its not cool, its been done already and it disnt really end well.

    If dala is put back It would be cool to see how it should have looked before it became some memesky castle. You know big lane towards the city.. and just have outskirts with villages etc. Basically fill the crater.

    I think that the green dragonflight is probably as compromised as the black one was. They have been exposed to the Nightmare for far too long. We saw it with the Nightmare and almost every one of them eventually falling prey to it, even Ysera, some twice. We saw it with the void flower in the cave after we defeated Xavius and then again with the Void invading during the Essence questline in BfA. Plus Merithra was literally standing next to C'thun's corpse for millenia; Arygos was as well and he betrayed everyone (and got killed to power Chromatus). Calen seemed fine but he died quite early (would be cool to bring him back as a void monster and throw him at Alex if the plot allows).

    I mean it could be cool if it served a purpose. I don't see it serving a purpose here. It would have served the purpose of raising the stakes back in Legion but now? Meh

    Merithra would be life aligned though and we know that they have not directly infil(most people assume the Light Nathrezim is Lothraxion; imo that would be too damn obvious).

    That said "The adherents to Life are the most insidious of opponents, perhaps because their nature is so antithetical to our own.
    Still, we learned much from observing the link between their plane and Ardenweald, and we have high confidence that a vulnerability has been identified.
    Our operative has already gained the trust of her target."

    Who could the target and the operative be? I am not even sure it's someone we know.

    Could just have them bubble out of his constantly mutating skin.

    Chromatus though was totally looking forward to raping a few female dragons so he can see if they'd bear a stable chromatic line.

    Although dragon rape has been a startlingly common trope in this universe, I can't see them doing it again in the current climate.

    Could be as simple as "Oh we can use this power source I found on Dragon Isle to turn us back into full Aspects" "Wait this power source was what was keeping the body of the fifth old god dormant. Hey Xal!"

    Really? Did woke people rally against the Handmaiden's tale or something? If the person threatening with or committing the raid is presented as unequivocally evil and the act of rape is not normalized but presented as traumatic, there is nothing wrong with using it as a narrative device.
