    Ok so... if the next expansion is about dragons, what role exactly will they be playing since they lost their powers, and ability to reproduce after Cata to empower the Dragon Soul for the final raid.
    I guess Blizz forgot about that though since they keep popping up and still have powers....

    3. Dragonflight is something new, maybe a mix of the two options above;
    4. Dragonflight is not the next expansion!

    Personally, I'm hoping for option 2... for obvious reasons.

    It's either 1. or 3.
    And knowing how lazy Blizzard is it's going to be 1. I still don't see the benefit of revamping the old world besides some people in this thread (me included) really wanting it. A revamp is pointless if it is only for levelling from 1-50 (people stay merely hours in this level range) and I absolutely don't see them revamping the whole levelling process and making old world content (even if it is newly created for the revamp) being relevant at max level. Historically only max level content counts and this will probably completely be on the Dragon Isles.
    That said, this is of course my personal opinion but as someone waiting for a revamp I wouldn't set my hopes too high. Perhaps they change some buildings and/or mobs to those with higher resolution but that's all I can see happening.

    Lordaeron for the scarlet crusade

    Quelthalas for a story about the void flight or maybe infinite

    Dragonblight for galakrond

    Then twilight highlands for chromatus getting revived

    Dragon isles with two zones at launch
    1 for the finale of leveling and the new hub city
    1 for endgame stuff

    I imagine they can make a story about the next generation of dragons getting empowered by Azeroth

    Honestly? The most like scenario is that the story will focus on us undoing the end of Cataclysm so that the Dragon Aspects can guard us from whatever extra cosmic BS the Jailer was afraid of.

    At this point I am more surprised that the dragons havent done anything yet, seeing how we have the Pillars. But yeah even if they cant reproduce no more atm, there are still dragon eggs left over for the time being

    Tbh I think the dragons are the link to some Life realm due to the fact that some Oracle in ZM talked several languages:
    -demonic
    -void language (can't remember the name)
    -draconic (which can be interpreted as life language?)

    Had a long think about this, and I guess it comes down to what the Dragon Isles look like.
    If it's just another island then I would definitely want a focus on a world revamp instead. We have enough normal islands at this point. We might as well just reuse older areas instead.

    If the Dragon isles are floating and generally more high-concept, then I would definitely prefer just the Dragon isles with maybe a couple of revamped zones instead so Blizzard could focus on making the zones good instead of just having lots of them, which is the mistake Cataclysm did.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    WotLK Classic for sure will launch around its 14-year-anniversary mid November.

    By the way, halflings in WoW? This sounds so bad.

    I can totally see that. Launch Wrath Classic this year so they can again talk about how strong the game is doing despite being a non-expansion year.

    As for Halflings....my only problem is that we already have dwarves, gnomes, and goblins. How many variations of midget do we need in a setting?

    Are you so used to people agreeing with you that you treat anything else as people being hostile and toxic?

    Have you never had to argue your case?
    Eh, you are calling them sheep. What argument can be made when your initial position is "People who like this playstyle are incapable of critical thinking" You do it in multiple spots; the people who prefer solo play are decorated with any number of devaluing descriptors by you, without argument as to why. So yeah, you are not someone worth arguing with because you do not form statements but rather attack people's preferences.

    Idk… since legion the zones all feel the same to me…Like they all give off the same vibe. They havent been exciting and fresh to me at all. Thats why i lean towards a world revamp, but honestly i dont see it happen (as leveling zones at least).

    So yeah i hope Blizzard really has been experimenting more with zones design and how we progress through them.

    I mean with LFR just released they really could have gotten away with no dungeons and a much larger raid. Instead of three more dungeons to queue for, 2-3 more wings of LFR to queue for.

    They really serve no purpose. WoW has so many cool races that came and went and are completely unused, which is a shame, because they’re great: Arakkoa, Saberon, Botani, Taunka, Sethrak - just to name a few. We don’t need new races at all, especially not when it’s just a midget human.

    The Pillars were a MacGuffin. I hardly think they thought out the full implications.

    Honestly I really liked the zones in Kul Tiras, but I can understand where you are coming from. For me it was a happy accident as I like the gloomy gothic aesthetic. If Pandaria had one of those I would sub just to hang out there.

    Your mention of Taunka reminded me of allied races and how Tauren got Highmountain Tauren instead of Taunka or Yaungol. The wirst offenders were the Lightforged. How the flying fuck we did not get Broken yet is beyond me.

    Looks like a slightly distorted version of Draenor.
