    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.

    That'd lead to some very cluttered raid encounters.

    That being said, in the very long run it might work out better. Saying there's six primal forces but that only one is the worst and most dangerous robs it of nuance and this way the narrative becomes more about coexisting of differing ideologies against something more explicitly existential. Now you can explain it that SARGERAS just feared the Void most the same way that the Void feared seemingly Death most from the Windrunner comic and the whispers.

    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
    Sinestra was underground when we fought her. Stands to reason that her eggs are, too. Not sure where you're getting this nonsense idea from that it was Alex.

    Same goes for the Nightmare: We know it's the Old Gods doing. There's no reason to assume it involved Alex or Ysera in any way.

    We know about Nozdormu, but it appears the Infinite are acting entirely seperate from the Void, with unclear goals.

    You'd just have to Katamari the camera far enough that you can barely tell you are a dragon in the first place. And bosses would have to be bigger, of course.

    Only way i can see that happen is if they completely redesign the flying mechanics.

    Everything else aside, I would legitimately love it if whatever the resolution of this expansion is results in the creation of the metallic dragonflights in WoW. They've been conspicuously absent.

    Probably because WotC would sue the shit out of Blizzard.

    We already have mounts that make you a dragon.. such a sandstone and leggy mount.

    Are they bronze, though? I always thought they went with that term because "Yellow Dragonflight" or "Orange Dragonflight" don't roll off of the tongue all that well. They certainly don't look metallic.

    They're practically a trope at this point.

    So long as they are legally distinct enough it should be fine.

    I mean, we have beholders in the game which is another creature WotC tend to be very sue-happy about.
