    Hmm, I must have missed that tweet. But they could also be lying to keep the train going for a while longer since their first leak was dismissed so quickly. Had no idea these backgrounds were also used in the official previews though.

    Yeah and if we wouldn’t have gotten the Dragonflight leak two weeks ago the hype would have been 1/10 of what it is now, at best. A leak was clearly helping getting the pages.

    No, Blizzard uses this background for official previews.

    To add: 200 pages ago... so by timestamp start looking last at night around like 8 PM (CEST) or older

    You're not alone there, I've seen like 80% negative comments about it so far across multiple mediums so I hope Blizzard didn't fuck up and make that race look like that. In any case, we'll see in a few hours.

    And they mentioned it on Discord, not Twitter.

    Also in the "leaked image" there seems to be a texture over the background while Simaia's images look more like just a gradient

    Void elf, possibly.

    Worgen, no.

    Dark Iron, unlikely.

    Pandaren, no.

    Kul'Tiran, unlikely.

    Orc, maybe, if a bit awkward because of their past.

    Undead, unlikely.

    Troll, unlikely.

    Tauren, maybe? because of Ebonhorn?

    Blood elf, probably.

    Highmountain, unlikely.

    Goblin, no.

    Nightborne, possibly.

    it's called information bias

    How about all of them?

    It's a shapeshifting dragon.

    Me too, and more so, I never felt they really *fit* into WoW. I mean, strictly speaking, they do in the sense that we've seen humanoid dragons in the past. But something about them sticks out like a sore thumb. I feel like they are so thematically narrow that they are going to feel really out of place after the next expansion.

    It's kind of like Pandaren and Demon Hunters. They fit neatly into their own expansions, but they seem thematically the odd-one-out in all other settings

    I think the right, bulky mog can definitely make the race into something good still. Not ideal, but hey.. personally my reception was very MEH at first, but now I kinda dig it. Still holding out a little bit of hope that this is the "female" version and there are males that are a good bit bulkier and more.. square?

    I just think Warrior is the most basic class that can be played by every race.

    Healer classes are difficult due to lore reasons. Dragons binding Elementals? I don’t know. Dragons become a Ghost Wolf? Uhm… Druids? I mean Ysera and stuff and a lizard cat or whatever would be cool, but kinda awkward too. Mage again is one of the basic classes that can be played by basically everyone, so pretty much a go.

    Alright, so, not debunked yet then! Also, keyboardturn doesn't seem to use drop shadow on their previews the same way Blizzard does. So the leak is definitely more consistent with the look of the official slides Blizzard does.

    Chromie is one of the most famous dragons in WoW and she’s a gnome. Also there have been several dragons in lore who have disguised themselves as goblins.

    All races would have access to a dragon class, because dragons disguise themselves as any race they choose.

(Although I doubt Pandaren were on most people's radar before Mists)

    I just don't feel any excitement about it at all
    I can't say I'm excited, intrigued definitely as I love my aura in ffxiv.

    All that really proves is that the background is publically available.
