    Blizzard is seldom playing 4D chess. They see something IRL that gives a cool visual, they throw it in the game. If the players like it, they leave it open to player interpretation to fill in the lore about it, and if they like the lore they may make it canon eventually.
    IMO this is 100% as it should be in fantasy games. Overexplanation leads to less creativity and coolness. I'd rather have a a cool jungle with fantasy twists that don't make sense in the real world than a recreation of an earth rainforest in any fantasy game

    What secrets are you hiding from us Blizz?!?!
    Not a fan of the Anduin news but I'm dealing. Not even remotely saying DF is bad. No, it looks pretty good.

    Overall interviews give overwhelmingly food news.
    Also on the zone scale what is interesting is that they said the DF zones individually are bigger than the ones in SL, but also that its one of the largest continents in general that they did. It's a 4-5 zone continent (depending if they count the starting zone) and most of the other large ones have at least 6-7 zones

    Plus they will have big verticality.

    Probably each zone is effectively two zones; the leveling part and the endgame part. If each rep is getting its own campaign at max level, they need the space.

    The new dragon lore, and Kalecgos, Wrathion, and Mithras’ story arcs already sound a thousand times better than the Shadowlands BS.

    The additional infos trickling down through the interviews sound promising so far. Except for the disgusting dragon mongrel race class I'm looking forward to what this addon shapes up to be. Maybe Blizzard has finally overcome the marvel retard addon style that is going on since Legion.

    I don't think the number of zones really matters. Remember that Pandaria was originally only very large 4 zones + Vale of Eternal Blossoms to thematically correspond with the Celestials. But they later split Valley of the Four Winds and Townlong Steppes into 2 zones each without changing the overall size of Pandaria.

    Zones like Jade Forest and Kunlai felt very massive to me in MoP and supposedly the Dragon Isles zones will be even larger.

    The Preorder pet is supposedly a Tuskarr child. That alongside the new models, and a female Tuskarr is pushing people to believe that Tuskarr are potentially a new AR.

    They're not going to be fully armored because dragons aren't fully armored, despite their visage forms.

    Dracthyr are pretty much this;

    Almost none which is the whole issue. They have stuff encrypted so we can't see the biggest changes yet.

    Their scales are essentially their armour... Anything extra is usually ornamental.
