    The system of judging souls was broken and that was kinda the story of the expansion but the explanation of how the souls works has nothing to do with it
    Then my point was the dichotomy makes no sense & it sounds like you agree with me. Such as Kairozdormu saying our Garrosh was the worst possible version: Why a single iteration deserving Revendreth when the rest didn't is the part that makes no sense.

    Again the point of this thread was an argument why the next expansion shouldn't revolve around time travel.

    Could be mail wearing
    With a sword and board spec for tanking called Warden
    With a healing spec called Weavers
    With a ranged dps spec called Watcher

    It doesn't have to be so IMO. If they added a Dragonsworn (whatever the name) class and it followed your suggestions, this could work as :

    - Tank spec = Black dragonflight follower
    - Healing spec = Emerald/Ruby dragonflight follower
    - Ranged DPS = Bronze/Azure dragonflight follower

    In this case, only the tank spec would be a melee obviously and it could fit the fantasy of a Dragon Knight wearing 2H weapons (polearm/2H mace/etc.). I think dragons themselves are mostly casters when they are in human form except for Deathwing which wore a 2H Mace and thus would have been a melee.

    TBF Chronomancer or Timewalker are really close and one could just be a spec of the other if a "Time" class was added

    It is probably worded awkwardly so that the leak can be "true" in various different scenarios. You know, like the old "If you cross the river you will bring down a great empire" prophecy.

    That CEO does that kind of thing all the time, it's actually kind of fun to watch when he shows up on stage at Fanfest.

    Arcane mages have one iconic ability - Arcane Explosion. It’s Explosion of Dragons, folks!

    I would be okay with it. We need more healing and ranged specs.

    Well he has to be a chill dude if he also gave the okay to be turned into a NieR Automate boss.

    Anyway, I think I got it. The new class is Evoker. It definitely gives the "huh, but we have mages" vibe, and Evocation is an Arcane Mage ability. Just an Arcana Mage ability. And it isn't even totally unknown to WoW.

    Haha, daddy hit the jackpot.

    Assuming it's an Evoker, going off the top of my head, most mobs we've seen with the Evoker title have been fire and frost and shadow. I think Dwarves had nature damage.

    Of course, using Dungeons and Dragons, Evocation magic is more or less just pulling on energy and creating something from an unknown energy source. Could be waved as a class of the First Ones, with some cosmic bruhaha..

    Should be interesting to see how close everyone gets

    It could be completely off field and be a spellblade. Gish (arcane warriors) are probably one of the most popular archetypes in fantasy fiction (they really are the Mary Sues of RPGs). While several classes have specs that sort of play like a gish, none actually meet the fantasy because they are very far thematically (enhancement may be the closest but it is a completely different theme)
    Spellblades of many types already exist in game, from Aluriel to the Silvermoon Spellbreakers (and even Kael'thas himself since his most iconic fight was a melee one).

    And dragons are THE melee magic users of fantasy.

    Since we have Defias Evokers as well, I doubt they would wield First One magic. But they DO have ties to dragons as Onyxia was the behind-the-scenes force for them.

    The range of Evokers is pretty wide. Defias, Twilight Hammer Cultists, Scarlet Crusaders, Drust witches and skeletons, Arakkoa, Loads of orcs, Iron Dwarves.

    It kinda gives me the vibes of drawing out elemental powers without being a shaman. Maybe the race is somehow related to the elements instead of being draconic.

    Or, you are just evoking the powers of each Dragonflight.


    Formerly known as Arafal

    I will assume you are joking anyway but how would you ever distinguish this from mages? You can distinguish it from Destruction, Balance and Elemental because it thematically would be tied to a very different looking class but how would it not feel like a mage?

    Chronomancer? Enlightened? Incanter?
