    It's kind of sad that they wear mail. I would've preferred to see the visage forms in robes.

    3. priest (this is my only guess as it has no definitve priest traits except for the colour)

    4. monk (ninja and beeds)
    5. paladin (light runes and light crystals)
    6. warrior (stones, boulders, rough)

    7. death knight (horns, looks similar to previous DK sets, dragon skulls on knees)
    8. warlock (horns, ritualist type set)
    9. evoker (dragon face)
    10. demon hunter (demon hunter horns)

    11. shaman (looks similar to the T10 set, animal skull and crystals)
    12. mage (mage orbs on shoulders)
    13. hunter (dragon skull as a helmet, lightweight)
    You’ve got a lot right! They’ve officially revealed the classes, though

    3 is Shaman

    7 is Evoker (it’s got dragon horns, dragon boots, but is also made of scales and mail)

    8 is Priest

    9 is Warlock

    11 is DK, which is cool, we never get ice-themed sets for them

    Others are spot on!

    Yellow definitely is the most easily identifiable set

    You got most right, but you mistook Shaman for Priest, Evoker for DK, Priest for Warlock, Warlock for Evoker and DK for Shaman.

    I.e.
    3. Shaman (it's lightning and craggy rock, come on)
    7. Evoker
    8. Priest
    9. Warlock
    11. Death Knight

    Well, between Shamans and Evokers, there still should be some.

    And Mail is currently the least used type, so it makes sense they'd want one more. Besides, they naturally wear "scale mail".

    I'd like to see the details and in-game model, in that image it looks a bit too much like the DS Warrior set, but we'll see.

    Well, all of the sets are themed after elemental protodrakes. That's kinda par for the course.

    Don't know if I'm just acting like a sore looser or if it's because the warlock set on a drakthyr would be really sweet looking

    I agree, but the leak said Moruzond is the final boss. The leak 4 days before the reveal that got everything right. They said 3 things.

    Moruzond final boss

    The pose of venthyrs would look great on them. That snobbish, arrogant, powerful pose would fit perfectly.
    Honestly yeah. They don't even have to make a new idle pose from scratch, they really can just tweak the Venthyr one.

    You can use your eyes to look at the many people still guessing wrong, right now, in this thread even though the class the sets belong to have already been identified.

    And trying to say use robes as a disqualifier for paladin is melting my brain: They've given Paladin robes for their tier more times than any other non-cloth wearer.
    OK, but through the powers of deduction you can tell the Paldain set is obviously plate. And has holy runes on the shoulder things like the priest set. Its the first set I identified. Of course I have mained a paladin for 15 years, so it was easy for me.

    The problem with Galakrond imo as a final boss, unless they build him up character wise in the expac, he's just a mindless devourer.
    Yeah, Hes Deathwing level, but even dumber. I know he has some dialogue in a book, but I don't think they have time to build him up. Although they successfully built up the Thunder King for MoP's 5.2 patch, so it could be done, but I have less faith in blizzards narrative ability these days.

    Moruzond is still very powerful, and charasmatic/intellegent. Its much easier to make him final boss.

    Same man, in same post, also claims it is "copium" to say the rig predates the Incubus.

    Holy shit.

    They've been particularly bad at representing class fantasies lately, they seem to focus more on the tier theme. Contrast that with many old sets where you could instantly see what class something is, or at the very least see instantly which sets are cloth or plate.
    There are obvious bits and pieces that tells you at least what 9 or 10 out of 13 are clearly. Deduction can give you the rest. But eh, clearly some people have trouble with it. Idk how, but its obvious now that they arent as easy to tell apart as I assumed they were. So ill partially concede that point.

    I'm going to love being in the capital city with dragons flying all over the place. I loved that about Wyrmrest Temple.

    See I was under the impression that Titans molded some into Dragons, but it was natural evolution? I guess they were dragon shaped elementals until the curse of flesh hit?

    Prob a few different themes. Black and glowy for sure. Also could have a lot of bronze sandy time themes.

    Probably more diverse than ZM tiers, but less diverse than the Dragonflight Primal tier.

    Yeah, I suppose that makes sense. Or it could be as simple as they realized the sets being made fit better into the primal raid than the next one. Perhaps they weren't sure that was going to be the first raid yet, but the artists already had them concepted out. Who knows.

    They spent an entire expansion building up the Jailer and he went over like a wet fart. As folks love to point out, we learned more about Stoney Boy in one trailer than we did about the Jailer in 2 years.

    Heck, Blizz seems content to let the Dragonflights be the driving drama of this expansion anyway. Look how little they talked about the Primalists and the Primal Dragons and how much they spent talking about "The Dragonflights have to decide who they want to be in this new age" and about the vacancies in the Emerald and Black flights.
    Speaking of which, I wonder what the catalyst will be that finally makes Nozdormu snap? If he's ever going to do it in WoW this is the perfect time.

    Hmm.

    I now wonder how many versions of "Baddragon" names have been claimed already...
    If you don't want to fight big dragons, this might not be the expansion for you.

    Eh, they have elemental and arcane spells sure, but half their abilities are likely going to be dragon based instead of casting based. I don't think they are as similar as we think. Who knows though.

    I buy it.

    Also I’m positive that the new AR will be Tuskarr. That should make up for people who wanted a new race for the existing classes.

    He is deeply entwined with Titan lore, so you could bring Ulduar into the story.

    And of course there is the big mystery of why he went bad to begin with, which is an intriguing story hook on its own.


    Just have someone ressurect him, have the Dragon aspects philosophize on why they banded together to stop him in the first place, and then have some sort of payoff with Ulduar and the keepers.
    Done deal, and you have yourself the climax to a decently good story.
    Yeah, if done right it might be easier for blizzard to make him a compelling villain than it was for the Thunder King. Idk if they have the narrative chops to do it, but I think TK is the in the top 5 villains in WoW and he was invented in an expansion about Pandas.

    Charged Aimed shot gives a haste buff.
    Charged Aimed shot is almost always a guaranteed crit.
    Chardged Aimed shot Hits 2 targets for full damage.

    Lots they could do with it.

    11.0 could be a world revamp but they might want to do cosmic again, so it very well could be 12.0.

    I do think they will do it in the next 3 or 4 expansions, but aside from next xpac being the 20th anniversary, it makes more sense for 12.0.

    11.0 Cosmic Light or void xpac.
    12.0 Down to Azeroth back to basics world revamp with housing.

    If I'm not mistaken, the curse of flesh only affected the titanforged creations, like the mechagnomes and Earthen.

    I'd liken the Primalist drakes to Homo neanderthalensis/erectus while the Aspects would be the Homo sapien equivalent. Same common elemental ancestor species different fantasy evolutionary pressures.

    Is there gonna be physical boxes?
