    There are other issues with the two logos, but the text just seems like it was a poor effort.
    I figure English is a second language of whoever wrote this based on all sorts of evidence. Aside from the poor spelling in some areas and the use of British English' "customise" instead of "customize", this makes me think the leaker isn't an English-speaker, which is a shame, because that always makes leaks less fun when they aren't immediately reasonable to believe.

    I'd say that "Tinker" and "Artificer" ought to be merged as concepts. That would allow for more races to be used for it—perhaps Gnomes and Goblins ought to start using Titan technology more, allowing for both Tinkers and Artificers to use similar magitek systems instead of relying upon entirely different systems that would alter gameplay too profoundly?

    The execs were still hiring union-busting firms to stifle criticism and organization. They're also making the bulk of the money off most transactions. I'm not totally planning on cutting Blizzard off, but I'm not in the mood for wistful thinking along the lines of "oh, they're just the poor little guys who didn't know : ) ) ) )". It's best to be reasonable with where to draw the line with criticism right now.

    "Fate of Eternity" more like "Fake of Eternity".

    Regardless what is important is that this got less internet traffic that that terrible leak of "Ghostly Stormwind" from 8.3. The desperation for a Stormwind Raid is real but it's not happening ever
    The illustrious Alliance of Stormwind is driven by tradition, nobility, and faith. They are staunch defenders of justice and duty who protect the realm of Azeroth against any aggressors, including the savage Horde. In a time when chaos and uncertainty reign, the Alliance remains steadfast in its determination to illuminate the darkest corners of the world and preserve order in Azeroth.

    How is that relevant?

    This is a good point, but I don't Blizz will remove Cataclysm zones from the game as they did with Vanilla zones this time.

    Well, the only thing I could figure out of 6x6 would be "Zereth Mortis". I checked, and the third letter of the second word is not the same as the fourth of the first. I don't know what else would be 6x6 that would fit, but it would have to be something where the letters are consistent. Consistency between the letters is, indeed, the only way of figuring this out.

    To be specific, it almost certainly can't be a code because there is NO CONSISTENCY across the letters. Unless it's a six-by-six phrase that doesn't contain any repetitions of the same letters, it can't be a code. There are no relevant connections I can think of to Shadowlands that would fit that.

    "Borean Tundra" and "Zereth Mortis" are the only two I'd figure, and both have repetitions.

    Actually if you’re trying to use a broader term, going with mechanic over tinker makes a lot of sense. Tinker is very race specific, tending to mainly apply to only Goblins and Gnomes. Going with “mechanic” allows a much broader reach and design pool to work with. I could see a human mechanic before I could see a human tinker. Also mechanic sounds better as a class name.

    This is really no different than when Blizzard went with Monk over Brewmaster for a class name.

    It's not. He is purposely making broad, generalized statements that aren't currently being discussed while not directing them to anybody in particular, only to incite trollish/flaming responses. Per usual.

    Maybe.

    But for sure tomorrow there will be lot of internet traffic when they bring out the cash machine that is Arthas.

    Not even that, we are skeptical, given Blizzards recent track record of things. I hope it’s good tho

    Way too many people want 9.2 to be on Azeroth tho

    Again, mechanic has a very specific connotation in American English that does not make for a good class name. "Repairman" does not sound interesting and super cool, and they are never going to add a Tinker class that is not just called Tinker, the thing everyone expects a technology class to be called within the universe. Racial-tinge of the name is clearly not an issue since they were willing to theme monks, available to many races, entirely around Pandaren and the August Celestials. Also I'm not going to get into this with you, because you might be able to kid yourself, but it's super, super obvious you just really want this leak to be right because it means Tinkers are being added.

    It does seem to be some sort of message, but it's unlikely to just "be letters" since every symbol is different. For the record, they seem to fall into three categories, triangular, diamond and then square/H shaped.

    I think it’s pretty safe to assume that the twelve lesser runes are representing the twelve classes in game.

    Yeah, pretty much, but it keeps on giving.

    I don’t know, 12 classes + 3 roles sounds a bit too easy. But the symbols for sure must have a meaning.

    I just combined the bottom three.


    This mean anything to anyone? Seeing some obvious 'sacred geometry' lining up, or maybe the 6 cosmic forces on our cosmology charts.
