    The eye color was the main argument I remember against the Bolvar image but that was pretty silly.

    I'm pretty sure every legit leak gets called a fake at some point. Some people claimed the BfA logo was fake because it was too dark.

    It was his weird chonky wrist haha

    Sorry, to clarify, the part of his arm people were pointing at was his wrist. I think they were calling it his elbow and claiming it was wrong but it was actually just a really thick wrist.

    Funny because the eye color is what made it obvious.

    Like why would a fan make a detailed fake but have his eyes a different color. That's only something blizz would do for story reasons. Fans stick to established shit when making believable fakes.

    Classic nerd psychology

    At this point people have caught on that the real leaks always have things that make no actual sense until you have the bigger context. So you now get fake leaks that are a bunch of random gibberish like "Khadgar turns into Kalec and flies away" because they know the more random and not based in anything we would assume, the more likely to be real. But they get way too outlandish with it. "Vol'jin is an urn" was silly and random but not ridiculous. Khadgar being evil and turning into Kalec is just stupid.

    The name is a real leak, but this is probably just someone that threw this together at work in a couple hours after reading about the expansion name leak.
    Bro do u understand how high quality that art is? Not only is it similar to one of the artists blizz frequently uses (his name slips me atm) this piece would take weeks to complete. So the fact that this leaked alongside the name off the website WITH an entire new logo concept for WOW. If this was a fake the person would copy the exact concept of all the wow logo’s over the past 8 expacs as they’ve all been the same style, this one is modernized and going in a new direction. This cannot be fake stop smoking whatever you are lol.

    Bayard Wu is the one who people have been comparing it to. Check out his previous Alexstrasza.

    The resemblance is uncanny. Anyone who disagrees is just being a devil's advocate.

    Wrath of the alexstraza is real without a doubt

    Or someone had been working on a fake leak for a while ahead of time related to dragons and only stuck in the name right at the moment they heard the Dragonflight name leak online. Everyone suspected dragons and 9/10 leaks were about dragons. That's probably why the expansion name on this "leak" doesn't have a nameplate like every other expansion name has had in the past, because they just stuck the name on there at the last second.

    Another hit against the image is that the Seneca tobacco company with that logo is located in Eugene, Oregon. Which means it's very unlikely that both Blizzard and Seneca would use the same printing business to make their materials when they are in different states. Blizzard would be using a company in California, likely in the same city, while Seneca would be using a company in Oregon. That's assuming that Blizzard doesn't just make their materials in-house, in which case they wouldn't be making Seneca products as well.

    I honestly hope that all these leaks have been wrong. I would really like Blizzard to knock it out of the park next week and surprise us all. BBBuuuutttttt....I think we're getting dragons.

    We also just dealt with a Death expansion so I highly doubt we'll see another undead final boss, even though it would be pretty fucking dope to fight Galakrond
    Honestly, they could do them all. All could be their own tier.

    I kinda want to see a dead aspect council fight. Undead Deathwing, Malygos, and Ysera all at the same time.

    sadly, anything could be true

    - could be a blizzard designer (a smoker) with some tobacco brochure on his desk (for whatever reason)
    - could be a design company that does marketing design for Blizz and Seneca
    - could be somwhere else, with layed down fake Alexstrsza pictures
    - could be a designer at seneca doing the fake leak

    all is possible. we just don’t know it.

    Really? I think it's pretty clear that now we need something more down to earth. If not Dragon Isles, if not revamp, then what?
