    Huh? When was BfA ever advertised in the same way as Dragonflight is?

    Literally just compare their reveal trailers. BfA starts with actual genocide narrated by a heartbroken Jaina, who is quoting her father's words about peace being ephemeral. DF starts with the dragons playing with the fucking water while happy music plays in the background.

    And besides, no one liked N'Zoth's ending cinematic, so they shouldn't repeat it. It is quite possibly the least liked and most disliked cutscene they've ever posted on their YT.

    Calling it now! The Azeroth Titan/Avatar form will take inspiration from Athena.



    Though I don't think we're gonna see her anytime soon.

    I have pondered it for quite some time, I have observed the evidence, and I have concluded that Azeroth will look like a Void elf. She will have the form of the Void elf.

    She will have the form of an Elf, for her wound turned primitive savages into the first elves. That is her power and her influence derived from her wound.

    She will have the influence of the Void, for during the encounter in 8.3, N'Zoth began merging Ny'alotha with the very Heart of Azeroth, the Chamber of her Heart, which would have left her twisted, at least in some ways. And as Il'gynoth says, the Old Gods have been drawing the strength from the "earth" for aeons. Strength from the Titan. There will be consequences to this fact.

    It is now clear that the Void elf is the form most fitting to depict the Titan of Azeroth.

    I have said that many times before myself.

    Her getting a Pallas Athena look is inevitable.

    There is no lore about then using anymore and they don't use twilight drakes(i pretty sure it was bacl drakes before), but they are not taming proto-drakes. They are not suing the artifact, just the chain of it, i doubt this is any more problem that anyone using a sword, that is a weapon that killed many

    Also even on proto-drakes there's still some dodgy implications on "taming" something that can self-determine
    In wow ever animal can "self determine" if thats what you are saying, wolves, horses, griffons, wyverns, they are no different from then.

    We have had C'thin who is all eyes, and Yogg'saron who is all mouths.
    Maybe Xal'atath was once an old god that was all noses...

    In all seriousness, if they do push such a thing the next creepy thing to have too many of after eyes and mouths is probably hands. Just like, a thousand creepy humanoid hands.




    There's something terrifying about too many fully shaped hands. Hell, to make it creepier each hand could imitate a known species, like elves and trolls and dwarf hands emerging and you're left wondering if it's mocking you or if it's an amalgamation of dead humanoids that have been assimilated over millennia and that it has no true form of its own

    I think it would be cool to have one that is all wings. Both on Azeroth and on Draenor, wing serpents are connected to some extent with the Old Gods (Sethe, Arikara, Hakkar). What if one of the Void Lords is a creature of feathers/wings. Something that looks like Miata's awakened form from Claymore:


    or like a D&D chichimec

    So, an Old God or Void Lord based on biblically accurate angels?

    Yeah, an Old God seraph.

    If you consider the relation between Old God and Void Lord given that each Void Lord hurled pieces of themselves across the universe then e.g C'thun is not just the Old God of Madness on Azeroth but he is an Old God that may have appeared on multiple planets and that it is just an aspect of the Void Lord that created it. So there may have been a C'thun in Draenor. I mean we assume that what the Skethlon were trying to summon in Shadowmoon was just using the model because that's the mode they had built but what if that is just the form the Void Lord of Madness takes? That could even help explain other things like Yogg'saron being a Void Lord that has tried to assault the Shadowlands and thus Void Necromancy originating from them and having Yogg actually be an Old God of Death.

    Eye think the wings they have by the book would do just fine.

    Who wants to bet they designed unique hairstyles for the Venthyr because they intended to reuse them for Darkfallen?



    The Venthyr women even use a few blood elf hairstyles so they must have compatible phrenology.

    Yeah, it makes sense in so many ways that's hard to imagine something else.

    I can see her taking a form of an elf, but surely not of a void one since titans are Order beings, not Void ones. But I think it's unlikely because an elf form would trigger some people while something based on Greek/Norse mythology, which also happens to be the general rule for titans/watchers/stone ppl, wouldn't.

    Btw, does anybody knows if Argus was based on Egyptian mythology?

    I think Varodoc meant the many periodic attempts at corrupting Azeroth is what would make Azeroth a Void Elf. I personally thought of Azeroth being a Troll, but the Well of Eternity theory makes sense. Maybe an elf with tusks.

    As in Argus had horns & pointed ears, a bit like Draenei. So it makes sense they would look similar to the sapient races who originated there.

    Nah. Elemental based form. The elementals predate Old gods and the Titans couldn't kill them as they would always manifest back on Azeroth. So they had to be imprisoned. It seems pretty clear the elementals are tied to the world soul. In Dragon Flight we even have dragons empowered by the elements that rivals the power of the Titan empowered Dragons.
