    Iirc they explicitly said during the announcement that - for Dragonriding to continue in the future - they would need to build the new content around it. Which means they would need to do the same for the "old" content. And while a revamp is a tremendous task that requires much work, even more so with Dragonriding in mind, it's way easier to just create a new continent where the 5 or so zones are created with Dragonriding in mind. Creating a handful of zones on a new continent for Dragonriding is way easier than adjusting 30 or more old zones for that system.

    Well my interests are: mounts, transmogs, pets, achievements, mythic raiding, m+20, pvp solo q, alt play, updated professions. Wait, that's exactly what Blizzard is giving me. Maybe that's the reason why I love Dragonflight?

    None of it kills the game, it saves the game. Thousand times more than any "Borrowed Power" crap could ever have lol.

    I have surgery later this evening, so I'm hoping for a public build before that or just after so I can soak it all up!

    Any chance we see the Pantheon during Dragonflight? We now have access to them and we have some dragons looking to become Aspects (though I think that instead we will see the power dispersed across the flights to revitalize them).

    The only way to fix that is to give anyone with early access only access to an encrypted client, but with that also comes the danger of someone leaking the key and (some) sites datamining it anyways, or even worse, gives access to earlier builds encrypted with the same key as well. There's currently 2 armadillo encryption keys out there, 1 for wowdev builds and 1 for vendor builds, neither of which Blizzard probably want to see hit the public.

    If they were to roll with a secret client for the early access event they'll either have to create a separate directory on the CDN for it encrypted with a new key specific to this event (with the danger of it still leaking early), or by doing the entire preview outside of the public through VPN and/or remote cloud-based sessions or literally on location at Blizz (which is possible in Towelliee's case but not so much for Taliesin). Hmmmm!

    Either way, I'm going to be keeping a close eye on things tomorrow as that should be set-up day for whatever happens the rest of the week.
    Good for me I didn't sign up any NDA, will just push the buttons

    The Pantheon is stuck at the Seat of the Pantheon. They cannot leave their position unless they want to free Sargeras and again since Sargeras will always try to counter Order it makes zero sense for that to occur other than something or someone disrupting the Pantheon.

    We will receive new Titan Lore via Tyr's own Disk via the new Uldaman chambers akin to what we received in Vanilla from the Discs of Norgannon (Name not canon anymore but ayy lmao memes). There's also likely a candidate titanic testing facility on the Dragon Isles although with the current images that is a bit more unclear as it could be the Testing area is the seat of power itself and what not IDK we'll see how this one goes.

    Note that current speculation is: 10.1 is Drac'Thyr Island with Raid most likely being centered on Neltharion's threat he saw underneath the Drac'Thyr Island and made the Drac'Thyrs for to fight whatever that is, 10.2 being the final patch (is joke, or is it?) with Murozond obviously. So there might not be a Titan Facility Raid tier. Although who knows. Maybe it is a quest hub, dungeon or something else.

    Although knowing this Narrative Team we have a theme switch in 10.2 and we end up at the border of the Universe fighting Galactus and Voidlords.

    I no longer reply to quotations beyond if you're asking a genuine question or have a non-confrontational stance.

    I mean they could do anything. It is what makes the prospect of the fact Dragon Isles is set on a 4 zone island and with very little buildup beyond the Primal Raid Tier and the Drac'Thyr Starting Zone Raid Tier a bit worrying as it means the Narrative Team can once again do the extremely annoying narrative theme switch in the middle of the expansion which usually always lead to complete disaster and meltdown of any laymen person understanding the narrative.

    Plsno - completely avoiding any cosmic related WoW lore should be the main goal for the next 3 expansions at least. Build up the big void lord threat sure, but if they take us to a new "zereth" every other expansion i'm gonna be mad.

    Imagine Dragonriding ends up being really fun and they stop doing it after DF. That would suck.

    I'm gonna make a leaderboard with my guild about who can dive bomb closest to the ground without dying. Plus if they make me leave behind my beloved dragon after I braid it's hair and give it shiny armor, I'll be sad

    I don't think we can make it three but I at least hope for two as well. Maybe someone can change the channel for the narrative team so they watch less MCU and Game of Thrones and more The Boys? Heck let's go to classic fantasy and have them watch WoT.

    At the very least I'd expect to keep it as a normal flying mount.

    What I want is mounted combat

    Oh god no. I like "The Boys" but I don't want that grimdark stuff in my WoW. The MCU is awesome and the best story universe out there and I would hate it if Blizzard would change their current style. Also, didn't the WoT series flop hard? I only watched the first few episodes and it got boring quite fast.

    And yeah, the dragons will prolly end up as normal mounts in the worst case, just like artifacts which became normal transmogs down the line.
