    I'll be waiting for the apology once you're done with mealy-mouthed slight of hand.

    In any event, August 2023 is silly, yes. I'd say late 2022 is sillier.

    Honestly I'm just waiting for leaks to catch up to Dragonflight enough that people start throwing in why we should care. Because we all know the Aspects aren't turning evil so why are we going to the Dragon Isles if not to kill them?
    I don't know... Alexstrasza's definitely looking a little agro in that leaked art.

    If you mean the actual dragon, pretty sure it's not Alex.

    We’re probably gonna help fight threats to help the aspects regain their true power. It was lost after cata as they fulfilled their purpose in protecting azeroth, but now that Azeroth has been losing her blood, stabbed, and whatever zooval did by draining her in that opening cinematic in sepelchur I can imagine Azeroth needs some help.
    Still don’t get why ppl complain about needed a big bad threat, look how the jailer turned out. Let’s revert back to world building and a localized story

    Hard to tell, but it looks like it has her signature golden horn caps.

    If we get "player housing", do you think it will be true player housing in that each player can individually buy a house wherever they choose? I worry they might fuck it up and not go all the way with it and instead do a "guild housing". So one person basically gets to design the guild hall and everyone else just contributes. Hate those.

    Whatever it is, I hope it's instanced housing. As in, there's a house in the game world, anyone can buy it, but there's an infinite supply of them. Have a dozen or so of these littered around popular zones so people have choice.

    FFXIV's system would be good... if there were infinite subdivisions. Cause currently, I think FFXIV's stops at 24 subdivisions, and given the massive playerbase of that game, a house is pretty impossible to get.

    So she’s not in the maw at the end of the novel?

    It will be instanced

    At most it will have multiple places in the world that players can choose but one access point for each

    As long as I can set my home point to my house and hearth there at the end of every play session I'm set.

    As long as I can do everything in my house and never have to go to a city and be exposed to the morons in Trade chat, I will be good. Give me my garrison but with actual customization, thank you.

    I don’t think Alexstrasza is supposed to look evil in that art I think she’s supposed to look badass; we’ve never seen her with a weapon before, I think we’re seeing her step up to the plate as a warrior dragon queen, not an enemy.

    Like how Bolvar was used for SL marketing

    So she's going to stand in the expansion capitol hub and do nothing for the entire expansion?

    Honestly?

    I hope. I hope they keep her there and do nothing to butcher her character. PLEASE.

    Only decent way to do housing imho is to instance it, including the exterior if needed. It was one of the few good things that even worked in early EQ2 (I liked how one of the first tasks was to become a citizen and get a roof over your head). Just have different pricing tiers for houses/flats so that people can try it with low tier stuff first and can buy some of the better stuff later if they enjoy it. For all the cool stuff FFXIV does, housing is a mixed bag. An ideal solution imho would be to phase plots and have some central place where you can switch who is displayed next to you, that way you could select guild mates to be displayed nearby and maybe switch off those that start to make penis sculptures in their front yard.
    You are welcome, Metzen. I hope you won't fuck up my underground expansion idea.

    I honestly don't know why this is a point of discussion. Based on the systems and design of WoW, player housing would 100% be instanced. They would build off the Garrison system. I don't know why people are even fearing a FF14 style situation, when the games engine is built entirely not to work that way. Like, why on earth would Blizzard go out of their way to to do something completely different than what they've already been building off of since your farm in MoP?

    The Sylvanas novel was much more likely pushed back due to the paper shortage that occurred earlier this year due to Covid cutting supplies.

    Because you can't trust Blizzard to be smart. Chances are they go with the wrong conclusions again about what people like about it. Maybe they want to emphasize some community bullshit PR mantra and instead of instancing it like garrisons (which was just corner cutting really), think covenants; meaningful choice!

    Hey guys miss me??

    So I saw that reference Blizz made of me and Teriz in the April fool's post. I got to tell you I'm super honored.

    Now I know you devs are actively monitoring this thread.

    I got to ask you devs, how does it feel to know that I've figured out the essence of 10.0 and 11.0 before SL even released.

    As you can see in https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...sbile-Spoilers

    And

    https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...s-Dragon-Isles

    Looking forward to the reveal and the tinker announcement.


    Btw, that Alex art is 100% real.

    This is why my avatar is so appropriate.
