    It's based on the affixes that are coming in a later patch for Season 4.

    Basically raids that scale up and have an affix. They are already experimenting with it for Shadowlands Season 4, but for now it's more of an "last season/anti-draught" thing.

    No clue, what this is referring to. There was a new Classic Survey that had options for 1/2 new HD Mounts for the upcoming Wrathgate Pass/Northrend Pass/Icecrown Pass (?). That's about it, I suppose. I have no idea what else it could be.

    A cursed thing. The expected outcome from the experiments in Season 4 which will be iterated on into a system titled Raiding+ which will basically be Mythic+ but Raiding.

    I've always theorized that Renown as a System is going to be iterated on the next expansion to become a Battle Pass System and that it will be a new vector for monetization for Blizzard.
    I no longer reply to quotations beyond if you're asking a genuine question or have a non-confrontational stance.

    9.2.5 and Shadowlands Season 4 will have a system in which older raids (in this case Nathria and Sanctum), will have an extra layer of complexity similar in vein to the M+ seasonal affix, that is coupled with the ability to gain rewards similar in strength to the current raid.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    The interesting part is that this pet was added in Shadowlands. And people like to think that promotional pets and mounts are clues of what's to come, so... who knows. This at least confirms that Blizzard also believes that a Lunar dragonflight should be white in color (with some blue bits, potentially).

    I hope we visit the moon, esp. if there's a titan facility in one. Fly me to the moon...

    Although it may be too much considering we're burned on cosmic stories.

    I like the predictions you've got here.

    But what's Raid+? Like Mythic+? Raiding with affixes?

    EDIT: Oh, I see you already answered this above. My bad!

    I suggest everyone gets a good amount of sleep tonight. Announcement week starts tomorrow and as we all know the day before usually isn't one to not be paying attention. Don't forget to enjoy the ride, everyone!

    No idea. Several of the HD retextures are PvP exclusive though. Would be nice for them to be slowly available for PvE. PvP has by far the most exclusive mogs and mounts and unlike PvE you cannot just slowly work for them a couple of xpacs later.

    Looking forward to it! I fully expect to get tied up in something at work & come back to 45 extra pages of discussion after someone found a datamined armor texture we missed before.

    That's why I want 1:1 remakes similiar to the Alterac Anniversary Mounts. That way the PvP ones are still special and we can get rid of the horrible ugliness of the first generation of mounts that stick out like an old sock next to newer ones. Basically what they did for character models back in WoD.

    (Oh and also I wouldn't mind if you could earn Vicious Saddles/Rating via random bg's, similiar to the old classic pvp system)

    I won't be able to watch the presentation on Tuesday because of work so I'm kinda sorta hoping there's lots of leaks tomorrow when I have the day off to enjoy them.

    Should have already happened tbh.. it's weird it's not imo.

    Thanks for the answer on raid+ everyone!

    That system sounds cursed!

    My normal wakeup time is 130pm eastern (I work nights).

    So either I wait or get up a bit early.

    The event starts the second my work ends.
    Luckily, I work from home that day; just gotta hope there's no emergency calls in the last five minutes of the workday.

    This is where the fun begins, hoping to see some PTR updates as well!

    At the point we're headed for Wrath of the Shdowlands Dragon Isles Lich and tinkers.

    Agree with most things in there. But you think we won't get class skins? I think those are more likely to happen than the micro classes knowing Blizzard.

    Already missed that boat. But I'll still force myself to get up at the usual hour so it's all good.

    I can't be the only one who's had a hard time falling asleep the past few days because I keep checking MMOC on my phone. I wish I wasn't as excited as I am, but I guess I can't help it. A new expansion announcement is always an exciting time.
