    I don't know about cutting edge, but AOTC will be.

    I think. I guess I'm not sure about that but I could swear I've read they were.

    Why would their be one?

    They are elemental spirits, manifestations of primal elemental energy.
    Their 'seat of power' is literally the whole planet.

    Draenor didn't have a designated HQ for its elements either, and their elements aren't as chaotic and unhinged as Azeroths are.
    The chronicle map doesn't help either as that's just how the Black Empire segregated them.

    AOTC no, but the mount will still drop 100%, which alleviates most players fears.

    I stand corrected. Kind of.

    The Achievement will be gone. But the mount will stay.

    Vanilla also launched the week of Thanksgiving in 2004 so it shouldn't be ruled out as a date just because of the holiday.

    I wonder if they will remove it for 10.0. It will be nice to get it when soloing old content even if that likely won't happen until 11.0+. I wish Blizzard would have a "moose mount" event at the end of each expansion where they encourage guilds to carry people for free somehow. That was a pretty cool thing for the community to have happen back then.

Chronicles brushed over it because it wasn't important to flesh out at the time but I think we will get some hints this expansion.

    Since it is pretty clear the theme is the Primordial Azeroth vs Titan and it is implied the aspects get their power back somehow. I'm guessing the Titans don't come back and we will see more elemental/early lore defined. Maybe even some first one lore.
    The map does show where they were based though.

    Why would it be 9.2.5 instead of 9.2.6? Why skip a numbeR?

    Just going off the precedent they set with 8.3.7, no particular reason.

    It shows their territory after the war the Elementals had with the Black Empire. So it is possible that they had a different "home" then the territory shown. We have yet to see a map of what the Elementals ruled over prior to the Old Gods conquering them.
