    They will all fuse together into white dragons, mark my words. Ivory Dragonflight.
    You mean… a FUSION OF DRAGONZZZ?

    Also because The Burning Crusade was already an expansion.

    As long as they don't attack the Yellow Dragonflight, it is all good.

    The yellows are cool, until they also turn black.

    Jeez, this game is loaded. Thankfully the franchise can always go back to its roots of civilized men fighting evil tribes of... oh...

    Don't worry, they won't kill them all. They will just put them in internment camps to....waidamminute.

    Hmm... everyones' feeling pretty confident about the whole Dragonflight Covenants thing...

    Are you sure it's not going to be the old Dalaran order halls amidst a Dragon War?

    Alexstrasza has been hiding her corrupted whelps from being destroyed. And I'm fairly certain she gave her sister Ysera a corrupted flower that she planted in the Emerald Dream, which gave us the Emerald Nightmare. (Exhibit A1 and A2)

    We know of Nozdormu's fate as Murozond. We also know someone tried to kill Chromie during Legion. (Exhibit B)


    Sources:

    Exhibit A1
    https://www.wowhead.com/quest=53171/...twilight-scale

    <The worn scale of a twilight dragon, it has seen many years of fighting. The twilight dragons were thought to have been defeated with the fall of Sinestra, how were there so many on the island? And who is leading the flight?>

    Shh! Step back! We can't let them see us!

    What are you doing here? Who sent you?

    <Eryna listens as you explain the twilight attack.>

    Yes, we know. It's those damn stone troggs, nothing stops their digging! They dug far deeper and further than we thought possible.

    What's more, when I really concentrate, I can feel the heartbeat of thousands of tiny creatures in there. We have no idea how many more eggs remain...

    Since you're out here, one of them had these gems on them, take them.

    Exhibit A2




    Exhibit B




    JUST SAYIN

    Imagine having Void as a threat and not introducing a class that uses Void when only one spec of Priest uses it. But in all honesty, I don't expect the threat to be Void-related since Zovaal said "cosmos divided", he meant the cosmic forces themselves need to unite. If anything, it implies that the Void needs to be part of the unification.

But changing a warlock to necromancer? Completely changing all your pets and going from fire to frost will very much change how your class feels (especially for something like Demo).
    Another thing of interest would be talents though. I insist that the most important part of class design that they keep missing the mark on is talent viability; there are multiple specs in the game that have no reason to EVER change their talents in PvE. Make multiple setups viable in the same spec and you might have a character with two demo locks only one his locks he plays with Demons and focuses on Demonic Tyrant while e.g. the other is a Necromancer and focuses with the Necro equivalent of Nether Portal.
    I hadn't even thought about talents, but that could make for a very interesting adjustment to a class were they to go that direction. A Demo Warlock becoming a Necromancer (while it might not fit with the feel of the class) could be interesting, but give them a talent like DK's Army of the Dead (which would fit well) with a couple other rotational talents & you've largely changed the feel of the class with minimal effort. That could be a ton of fun!

    I probably would've gone with "The Burning of the Original Plot" for 9.0, but I think yours works well too.

    Its the most guessed title for a reason so yes it is.

    The fact that they are interrupting the cosmic arc in order to introduce Dragons does show that Blizz bends to the community's whims to some extent. Unless the Dragons become part of the cosmic lore which is another new perspective altogether.

    As a priest who only plays Shadowpriest, I hope I had a dedicated class instead of being part of the predominantly healer class that uses the opposite element. As I said multiple times before, it's a bummer that the Light gets Paladin on top of whatever Priest is using, while the Void is only that one Priest spec with no further representation.

    Thank you. A lot of people ignore this and say Void Lords or some shit. But the Void, Death and Fel are all parts of the cosmos and whatever scared Zovaal is external to the cosmos. Something else.

    The other forces are still a threat, though. Remember what Firim wrote in the final log.

    And if the Jailer, in his act of malevolence, left behind but the most imperceptible of cracks in that pattern, then I fear what is tiny now will only grow, until the balance itself is prone to be shattered by another force applying relentless pressure.
    Yes there is this seventh force but it also sounds like any of the other forces could do this.

    Its not like the other forces will just be like "yeah sure let's join up", its going to be some sort of battle them into submission sort of thing first.

    I also think the title Dragonflight could allude to flight being a central feature of the expansion, with flying available very early on, and zones designed around flying mounts.

    My gut feeling was that this might be the case with the next expansion, for a few reasons (including the CE mount possibly being a drake) but the title kinda clinches it IMO. I think we’ll be flying around on dragons early and often in 10.0.

    Battle for Azeroth
    Battle for Pandaria
    Battle for Draenor
    Battle for Argus (but mostly for Azeroth)
    Battle for Sylvanas
    Battle for the Shadowlands
    Battle for the Dragon Isles

    What if they give a borrowed power that allows players to transform into Dragons for the whole of the expansion? The reverse of what Dragons do all along.
