    Eh, I like them. I would definitely play as one but as I said before I don't want them to bring in any of the afterlife NPCs into the realm of the living as Allied Races. It would make no sense.

    I'd at least consider it just so i don't have to go through weird hoops to turn up my nose on anything.

    Blizz added two new CDN endpoints overnight for future encrypted products. My gut feeling says they might be closer than usual to public testing than they usually are when making announcements.

    I'm sure MMO-C/Wowhead will do a fine job at that, there's no way I'm going to be able to keep track.

    What is a CDN endpoint? Why wow3 and wow4? Is WoW1 PTR and WoW2 Classic PTR?
    Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

I'm also expecting to see all five Dragon Aspects appear since, you know, the expansion is called Dragonflight. It's about the other four as well, not just Alexstrasza.

    I stole that one from @ro9ue! I believe...
    I just like the concept of that one, as a sort of return to form. My favorite cinematics are vanilla and wrath. And that concept echoes both. At least subjectively to me.

    I saw some people speculating that there could be a playtest of some kind after the livestream. Could this point towards something like that? Maybe a short trial where we get to try out the new class or explore one of the new zones briefly. BlizzCon had one, but this is completely remote so I don't know what to expect.

    The "v" in wowv3/wowv4 stands for vendor. We don't know for sure what these are, but Overwatch's vendor products are used for testing at vendors like AMD/Nvidia/localization partners, so these likely have a similar goal.

    For WoWs other vendor products, they usually push things like PTR and Beta builds to these products closely to them being released to the public. For example, vendor 2 is currently a few builds ahead of PTR.

    Playtests wouldn't happen on the vendor products as these builds aren't meant for public consumption and releasing one vendor build to the public means all vendor builds ever become public (encryption key becoming available).

    However, if they were to update/reuse one of the old demo/event products and push a public build to that, that is definitely an indication of something public being on the way (or well, out). They could hold off until they literally announce something like a public playtest before doing that, though.

    I think it's better than nothing for sure, but I doubt as content patches Blizzard would do more than 10% of all zones of Kalimdor/Eastern Kingdoms, and that's because patches feel so light in content these days. For instance, in BFA we got a full revamp of Arathi on the expansion release but Darkshore was barely touched in a later patch.

    Duck mount!? Yes please.

    I see, thank you. Guess then that they are something for 10.0 and WotLK Classic. Makes sense.

    If they were to make something for consoles, we would not get a wowv5? It will have to be something that appeared only in consoles, right?

    To be fair, those talks of Loreth'aran, NE dragon riders and dragon elves is the thing that got me the MOST hyped! I'm here for it! Maybe the Dragon isles were part of the ancient pan-continent and were risen to the skies during the Sundering!

    And the Duck Mount is... inevitable

    Denathrius is not a Venthyr. He's their creator. Besides, he doesn't really fit your "vampire elf" standard, either.
