    Well, uh... Fits the idea of them being old then, ancient.

    Being in stasis isn't any different from travelling through time into the future. They don't age during it.

    Sure, Dracthyr are from ancient time, but are they elderly as individuals? No.

    Well that's why I said idea in the second post, people would look at a dragon and think "damn, this lizard must be pretty old".

    I think they were around for a while tbh. They are lvl 58 when you start after all and they all have vague memories of the first war against the Primalists (many of them seem to have a faint memory of Raszageth they cannot pin down). We do not know the timeline but I don't think the war against the Primalists happened immediately before the Sundering; I'd assume Neltharion was not mad yet.

    Imo it actually looks quite good ingame, although the riding animation is a bit weird. I guess the intention is to give us a mount that's usable in dungeons, hence no dragonriding customization although imo that's a bit of a shame. Gladiators once again get the top notch fomo stuff while pve people are only getting another mythic drop that will be farmable in future expansions ...

    The scism against Primalists happened sometime after Galagrond's fall and the titanic empowerment of the Aspects. Becoming the Titans' pet was the whole thing that fractured the dragonkind.

    Dracthyr were sealed during or shortly after that war.

    So that means the Dracthyr are fucking ancient.

    But they are not old.

    Which fits all the other races. We were always a young/fresh adventurers. Even DK's and DH's were new recruits.
    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.

    I was expecting a flying mount, or/and a custom skin for Dragonriding, but regardless, this one looks great.

    When we started, anyway. Well, between the time all that adventuring took and the DF timeskip, any Vanilla hero is in the business for well over a decade. So not that young.

    I am saying maybe they were old when they got frozen.

    I mean given the customization options, it's your choice. You CAN make your character look old and you can start as a level 10 Nightborne. My main started as a paladin in his mid 40s. He was the town blacksmith in Darrowshire and had some militia training from the Second War but he did not became an adventurer until being displaced and ending up in Stormwind.

    Assuming these are actually Vanilla heroes, and not someone who started much later.

    I'm glad the voice-lines for the Dracthyr are in!
    What are your thoughts?

    You would be 20000 years old. Just because something is frozen is ice, doesn't mean that time freezes as well. A mummy that is 10k years old is not 60 years old just because thats the age they died. Age is time spent being around. Not time spent being active.
    I will not reply to posts that are non-constructive or contain flaming and/or trolling.

    Sure, numerically they are old, but if they were stuck in stasis, then their entire physical/mental progress completely stopped. So they can have 10000+ years, but mentally and physically they are the same as 10000+ years ago. So their age is nothing more than a number now.

    Age is nothing but a number, if you were preserved for so many years you are still that many years old even if you were not active within that timeline.

    Boring, outside the one trolling the playerbase, which is going to cause the playerbase to troll that playerbase to the point it's insufferably annoying.

    The female dracthyr also sounds... off.

    Yeah for some reason I would have assumed the Dracthyr to sound a bit more arabic.. since Wrathion is also a bit inspired by Arabic/1001-nights with his getup.
