    Yes, because not understanding something and not knowing something are two completely different matters. And not "what the story is about". They're ignorant of what the story is. I.e. they don't know the story proper, their complaints are just based on some random bits they snapped up.

    For that matter, this lack has nothing to do with the story being to hard for them to understand (because it really isn't that complex) and a lot with them not bothering to even check what it is.

I'm kinda old, so I'm probably not the best person to judge how to avoid stuff because for me it's as simple as not going to wowhead, here or the forums for a bit. I can understand that it's harder for other people.
    I tend to avoid spoilers and I still got spoiled a couple of times on wowhead just by glancing at the screen while researching for an item, my eyes caught the name of the article that was something along the lines of "Four horsemen attack on the chapel of light scenario". They are the worst in the journalistic world.

    A few days ago someone in this topic shared his discovery when looking into the js files on the official website and catching the name DragonFlight. Of course wowhead made an article about this but never once cited mmo-champion forums or the post in which he detailed how he caught of this...

    Think it was the same for DH in WoD. You could get the pre-order bonuses like the mount, but had to wait until later to get the DHs.

    Imo it will be spring or summer, so we will see 'before 21st June' or 'before 23rd September' dates. 2022 is obviously out of picture, they would have a)start Alpha this month b)cancel season 4.
    Pre-order should start in 19th april.

    Unless the Tirisfal thing is super super spoilers on tier with 8.2.5, its probably related to preorder bonus. They did the same thing with Bolvars AR DK throne being encrypted until the preorder bonus was released.

    Could be Darkfallen AR, a Dark Ranger skin or both. Seeing as the Dark Ranger questline is hunter only it could be both of these?

    It passes when alpha begins and you get to soak in all the models, icons, music, etc., and when it's time to plan your big adventure on a new continent.

    But yeah.

    Anyway, let's get hype!!
    That's true. Definitely the worst time to play when you have to go back to the current zone you are alreadyy kinda done with and just sit and think about how long it is until you get to actually gather the new mounts and transmog, or clear the cool new dungeons and raids.

    Realistically if there's some amount of pre order perks (new race earlier) or 9.2.5 hits with something of interest (SL Allied Races, Dark fallen, whatever) it'll soften the blow... marginally.

    Preorder was available immediately with SL announcement. Preorder wasn't available for almost 3 months after BfA announcement.

    BfA announcement was during Blizzcon. I say it again, there is no reason to have the announcement as late as we are getting it if they aren't handling out pre-orders and possible alpha instantly.

    If there is a world revamp of any size I can see it being tied to early alpha or preorders. Maybe the revamped areas will come with an early prepatch?

    This is kind of why we're expecting a combination of both situations: There are pre-order bonuses encrypted in retail right now, just like in Shadowlands, but the Shadowlands pre-order also included allied race Death Knight access in the following patch.

    It would be weird if unlike BFA & Shadowlands, Dragonflight pre-order only had cosmetic bonuses, that's why we're expecting something more substantive, like new allied races to come in 9.2.5

    But then it could also be like Legion, where pre-order is just early access to a new class or something, but that'll mean we still have to wait months.

    Iirc Cataclysm had the revamped areas in a pre-patch earlier so you could level up in the new zones. MoP had pet battles earlier I think. Legion had DH's early, BfA had the first 4 allied races and Shadowlands had DK's for all races. So yeah, if we are getting new classes/races we will prolly see them earlier atleast. If we get some kind of revamp but it's only for lvl 60's we won't get it early I guess.
