    Mind Games is absolutely gonna stick around for Disc and Shadow.
    And i can potentially see Boon stay as well, perhaps as a holy talent.

    Fairies and Nova are just not engaging or interesting enough, and don't fit the class theme.
    (Though, i am gonna miss the resource fairy)

    It's a part of the new Alexstrasza model. Surprised you didnt catch up on that given you have her as your profile picture.

    I don't think they will just blanket give every class a specific covenant ability, but rather pick and choose whether one (or more) of the abilities really fit a specific class or spec, then potentially reskin the abilities if necessary.

    Death Chakram makes all the sense for Survival hunter, not so much for Marksmanship or BM, in which case Flayed Shot or a reskinned Wild Spirits respectively would fit much better.

    Would have to be a pretty impactful late game talent in that case. Execute is deeply ingrained into the Warrior class identity at this point. I would have to imagine it would be on the same level as when Lone Wolf was originally added to Marksman hunter as a level 100 talent.

    Really hope Hunters get Wailing Arrow and Withering Fire as baseline or talents.

    Pretty sure you can see that it's her belt buckle or at least somewhere on her lower belly in some of the promotional material.
    I think if you find the full version of the picture you are using it's on there.

    I dunno, withering fire is a bit dull as a mechanic, just being a worse version of the passive Volley, and while Wailing Arrow is cool I can't really see where it would really fit into the hunter rotation currently. If we had old ranged Survival then absolutely, but it's not exactly screaming Beast Master or Marksman, not in appearance nor in ability.
    Maybe if it was part of a larger Dark Ranger package that changed a bunch of MM spells into Dark Ranger ones like how you could play Protection as a DPS spec in WoD.

    Well that changes things. Thought I knew, but I guess not. Though you could stretch and say that it's maybe on her back?

    In any case I have no idea if that isnt where it's from.

    In a way yes that is correct, its a way of choosing a playstyle that the player prefers(Like me I don't really care too much about Executes).

    This ability had a little element of surprise in it, the leap would also not be effected much by slows and such and could have been used to get behind pillar way faster compared to steed and all sort of better uses. It was a cool ability, but a few fixes coud have made it into a much better and cooler ability. I would have enough ideas about the animation itself, no problem.

    I agree it shouldn't be a teleport.

    I mean, we have Light based Teleporters.

    Paladins getting a teleportation spell wouldn't be far fetched, it just needs to look the part.

    Paladins will get a teleport-based skill, in anticipation for the coming of the Ren'dorei Void Paladins.

    *Tinfoil* Those will be Darkfallen Hunter spells.

    Hope they eventually make Chi Burst an empowered ability. Imagine you are like Goku charging up a kamehameha.

    99% the box art version. Afaik it hasn't been released anywhere beyond its initial leak as that "poster" art, which I'm fairly sure is just the mockup for the box cover, but without the ring put on it yet.

    Good. I prefer that version quite a bit more than the version on the official website.

    I'm going to guess the "box art" is the Key Art from the press kit. They used the Bolvar from the press kit key art for Shadowlands.

    The poster is a composite of the two images (The Dragon is from the key art, Alex is from the second picture) , but the framing for it is more in line with previous box art than the key art.
