    I'm reasonably sure that Cata being the disaster it was means there will never be another world revamp.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Maybe this is done to age up certain characters. Like for instance, depending how long it ends up being Moira and Thaurissan's child should be a young adult at this point, I think? Otherwise I agree, its weird to do this specifically for DF.

    World revamp has to happen, can't see it not happening, every expansion that goes by without one makes the game feel like older and older.
    The main focus in my opinion should always be around Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor

    Would also be nice to see Northrend included with a world revamp, maybe in patch content.

    Or Cata being the disaster it was makes it more likely we will get a world revam done right, since Cata already did all the mistakes once.

    The best argument for a world revamp will always be that Blizzard will at some point race a choice between something players already enjoy, or something they have never heard of before. And given Shadowlands was also a disaster I think Blizzard will go for a revamp to date players who want to return to old favourites instead of making a zone noone cares about.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Just curious; are daggers still only transmogable with other daggers or have they opened them up to the other 1h weapons?
    AFAIK they are only mogable with themselves on Live Retail.

    If they aren't, I feel like Dragonflight would be the perfect time to allow it. They are opening up white quality gear to be eligible, and daggers are pretty much the only weapon type left out of their hand-class (all 2h weapons can be mogged with each other, all 1h weapons (barring daggers) can be mogged with each other, guns/bows/crossbows can be mogged with each other, heck - wands can be mogged onto 1h weapons and vice versa IIRC).

    It would open up so much more transmog options.
    By Blizzard Entertainment:
    Part of the reason is that Battlegrounds are like ducks.

    Not really. All the cata zones are like 5 years behind or something anyway. If the revamp comes after DF that just means everything in the new zones will be set after DF.

    That is true.
    Really I don't think they would have Wrathion on the loading screen and have his first interaction with Sabellian show him completely outclassed if they did NOT intend for him to pull a reversal. And I think Anduin will show up by the end of the xpac.

    The timeskip also explains why the Nelves are gone from Stormwind, though it does call into question where they are.

    Where else would they be other than rebuilding around Hyjal?

    He was already a drake at the end of BfA. He was, at worst, a dragon teenager there. Anduin was also a teenager.

    Blizzard: "Oh, we will make your character part of the story!"

    Also Blizzard: "There is a x year timeskip and your character somehow is unaware of anything that happened"

    Cool B)

    Yeah, the idea of a timeskip would make so much more sense if we actually had housing in the game. Atleast we could say than we retired haha.

    Renown only has a cap of 30, and its account wide.

    With it being so low, i wonder how long progression will take.

    I knew it'd be account wide yay!!!

    Seems like the Dragon Glyphs are account wide also. Seems to me the GRINDING part of DF doesn't reallt exist for alts which is nice

    That would be my guess. Seeing hidden side quests in 9.2.5 leads me to assume that prepatch will have us mostly around Uldaman in the Badlands, but also have some short chains for important stuff during time skip.

    What if prepatch is time skip? I don't remember how long it is said to have passed but what if like prepatch lasts for 4 weeks and every week content opens up for 1 year of the time skip
