    They're not making new starting zone either way. Nelves will start in Exile's Reach or Teldrassil. They just get phased into the destroyed Teldrassil phase once they enter BFA.

    Only issue I see with Teldrassil 2.0 is that the original was essentially a mutant that only grew to such extreme sizes because it wasn't blessed by the Aspects. If the new one is properly blessed then it would be more similar to the size of the other world trees and not capable of housing an entire zone.

    Unless being juiced up by Night Elf souls and the Winter Queen's power makes it some crazy megazord tree.

    Time magic + Ardenweald magic + Elune magic = lol @ logic

    The tree will be ready the moment Blizzard decides to have racial cities again.

    That's a fair point I hadn't considered. I just assumed it would be ready to go right away but they could hold off until then.

    Teldrassil was blessed by the Aspects, and it was blessed when it was already grown.
    Same with Nordrassil.

    The blessings have nothing to do with the size, Fandral and co. just grew a really big tree.

    No dungeon last week, so hoping for 1-2 today. Also, new zone. Also locks (most likely). Also, they said they are working on fixing priests, so new talents when???
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    Unless a major shift in their modern game philosophy happens, this will probably never be the case.

    There's not really any sense in not just planting the tree in the island that Teldrassil grew up from.
    It's a giant burned husk, burnt dead plant matter makes good soil. It also plays into the theme of "renewal".

    The art is building up for it, unless we are having new cities in the next continent.

    It'll be interesting to see if we might see some Druid changes as well as their dedicated talent tree dev is taking a break from Blizzard.

    But what would be the point? It's pretty clear they don't want to split up the player base into multiple cities. And aside from the visuals, there is no point in being there when there is a central hub.
    They need to build a major plot line behind those which is not worth the development time.

    It definitely could be a new Nelf city ala XIV cities spread around but I doubt it. It raises dangerous precedent (Ghostlands and Azuremyst getting updated but not brought into the new world)

    That being said... the Underground "Zone" could just be a mega dungeon, meaning the island could be a lot of different things.
    I have yet to see Blizzard succesfully write a not obvious bait & switch. I think we should just take it for what it seems.

    I don't need to google it. I saw the tree first-hand. It isn't suitable in the way Teldrassil is at all.

    Blizzard will not develop a city without gameplay function for it.

    Stormwind and Orgrimmar are the faction capitals so they get updates occasionally.

    Expansion hubs are, well, expansion hubs so they get made.

    Unless Neo Darnassus somehow ends as the expansion hub for an expansion, it is not happening.

    "Neo Darnassus" could also be patch content reminiscent of Suramar. It being more like a quest zone than a capital.
    But for rp and story purpose it is a new faction capital (just like Suramar being the Nightborns capital)

    They're not going to leave Night Elves and Forsaken without a capital city.

  18. #65678
    where build build build build build build

    sad orcy if no locky talents

    "Cities need a gameplay function" is a bizarre argument, because clearly an expansion that takes place on EK/Kalimdor would have new quests and gameplay associated with said cities. This is just another "THEY WONT DO CATA AGAIN!!!!" fight that goes back and forth pointlessly.

    I'll just keep taking a look at all the Alliance/Horde assets they are updating and the giant walls/buildings they are putting in the files. I really doubt its just housing and I also doubt they are going to make a new continent with giant Alliance/Horde bases.

    Having a capital is a minority thing these days.
