    - Thousand Needles. It can't be unflooded at this point, but at least make better use of the Needles instead of everything just being around the fringes.
    - Westfall
    - Badlands
    - Loch Modan. Bring back the Loch!
    - Tirisfall, this one should be obvious.
    - Update the BC starting zones for flight!
    I will eat my hat if they revamp anything. That'd be Blizzard doing what people want.

    Potato potato. Beast race perfectly fits things like worgen and tauren.

    Anything else that I missed?
    Agreed! The logo was dropped, I don't have the link handy though. Talent trees, possible images of a new class with red mist and sparks, a character customization screen of the same dragon model, and screenshots from the cinematic also dropped.

    Yeah but at least Elwynn still looks good. Most of my top ones for "please fuck this zone up" are actually "please unfuck this zone you fucked up in Cata."

    It's basically the list of zones I prefer Classic over Cataclysm, wholesale.

    I know right? If they are in the preorder, then they will be taking my money today.

    Even as a whole, most of the choices combined were still non-impactful passive percent-based bonuses. There were few that drastically changed how the class was played. Most of the time it was going a major in one spec and a minor in another to get a form of soft dual-spec. Even that was really light where again, most of the benefits were passive that really didn't change your core gameplay, just boosted some variables.

    Whereas now, using frost mage as an example. There are three clear playstyles, the 'Icy Veins, Ice Lance spam" build, the "Glacial Shard Mega-Cannon" build, and the "Ray of Frost" build with minor adjustments like double blink, or move while casting. Or choosing more cleave, more aoe. The choices players have are WAY more impactful in this new system despite having a less perceived choice. The big problem was balancing these specs. "Ray of Frost" build never really saw the light of day in any expansion, it was always severely under-tuned in most content. "Icy Veins" build was meta in Legion and Shadowlands for the majority of both expansions, and in BFA "Glacial Shard" was the only dominant choice.

    Now if they can strike a balance between the two, possibly building in some of the more interesting azerite traits and legendary effects, then we might have a real winner here.

    I already saw the potato cam picture for the talent trees, the mists, the really bad quality creation screen aswell as that one potato alextrasza image with the weird orcy statue. Looks like I was quite up to date yesterday before going to sleep.

    In other news - the new Veilstrider title is awesome and it's good to see that they made it a big casual achievement this time instead of "you must by a mythic raider and gladiator - champion of azeroth".

    Feel like the revamp might be off the table now, the first dragon flight leak seems like a lucky guess on the name. What we will get might be far less ambitious.

    Also, fuck having a new class and race. I main a single character, its my main, that's all I play. Watching Blizzard potentially take some new mage specs and section them off behind a new class wall is really fucking annoying.

    I doubt the dragon class resembles the dragon race. If the dragon class is structured after Alexstraza, then it’s more likely the traditional four legged winged dragon with the humanoid form being whatever race you are.

    Yeah, the entire game should just be one race and one class; human warriors.

    Feels like some Blizzard devs just joined the thread, lol...

    And when they actually bother to make proper models for digitigrade legs instead of stretching the leg textures and having all 3D elements clip horribly then I'd say they do them properly.

    I think so, but it's still possible it's not. It almost looked like after casting a dragon breath and leaving behind some kind of healing fire mist.

    Well, the dragon people are cool and I'll play as them if they're the new race, but I would have much preferred actual dragons to be our next race. Who doesn't want to be a dragon? We still get to be a humanoid race half the time.

    I believe the class will allow you to play an actual dragon.
