    Yes, he was. Some got the theme right by accident, but we didn't have any comprehensive leaks and only got that Bastion image very late before the reveal, with nobody actually being able to tell what it was and many mistaking it for some more Arabian themed thing.

    I still think the expansion should have been called WotB, though.

    - Follower system expanded on to allow NPC followers to group up with players in leveling activities only such as world questing and normal instances. This is to make up for the player base being split up amongst 4 factions
    I know the "leak" is obviously fake but this doesn't make sense at all. Why would the devs create a 4 way split into the player base, then knowing it's a problem they create an AI NPC followers system to fix it. If anything, the more logical step to take with the current game is to allow cross-faction play, not split it further.

    Also, 4th spec will never happen. It's just not realistic to expect them to do this. Some classes already have really clear class fantasy designed around each spec, like Mages, Priests or Druids, while others have a core class fantasy and specs are more or less declinaisons of the essence of that class, like Warrior, Hunters or even Paladins. For the Demon Hunter they only managed to make 2 specs that made sense. Most 4th specs lists I've seen on forums are almost always a big stretch and fan-fiction-y. Other people already commented on the balance issues this would bring.

    Overall, this "leak" focus too much on systems and not enough on the setting. I like to speculate and get creative even if it's not that realistic, but the OP doesn't give us much to go on...

    From what I gathered, it is not an actual split, but something similar to the covenant system. Warfronts are mentioned as an example with some similarities. This is basically what New World's end game PvP will look like minus the NPC's.

    I don't think all classes will get a 4th spec either, but only where it makes sense and is something players have been wanting. Doing so is easier than creating a whole new class since you already have the class kit and all you have to add is max 4 new spells.

    AI helpers during questing and doing normal dungeons in story mode/questing inside a dungeon is a good idea imo, but does not have to replace playing with others if done right, provided it rewards less than if playing with others and is harder/takes longer, rewards cosmetics only, provides a variety of solo activities to fill time with (instead of pet battles... lmao).

    Sorry, I stopped reading after a few lines. This is as false as false can be. Not going to happen. I know because my middle name is Nostradamus.

    But that's not what you said in your "leak".

    You said : "Factions split up into 4 instead of 2 due to leaders going against the will of the citizens".

    You're clearly talking about a 4 way split, Alliance and Horde becoming 4 new factions.

    I have to be clear : I don't think your "leak" is true, at all, so it doesn't matter really. But when trying to make up leaks (I've already said it's fine and fun to imagine stuff, speculate), try to make it make sense from Blizzard point of view. Talking about New World doesn't make it more credible, I'm sorry, because New World is almost only PvP focus and WoW is the opposite (and this will never change).

    Also, Warfronts were poorly received (because they were poorly made - great idea, badly executed), so it's quite obvious this system will never reappear without a really large overhaul.

    You're just throwing things in the air here... If you want this to be believable, please elaborate.

    In your OP, you said "4th specs gradually released throughout the expansion".

    This makes no sense. How could you expect players to switch to a new spec (with gearing in mind) midway through the expansion.

    Also, an hypothetical 4th spec is clearly a selling feature for any expansion, it makes no sense to delay its availability.

    And players will obviously complain if their class didn't get anything while others did.

    The fact that after developping a new AI system with Island Expedition they did almost nothing with it shows that they're not ready to go in that direction in PVE content.

    The only place I saw that AI system used is in Torghast with the improved Mirror Images on my mage. Mosts pets are still as dumb as before, NPC during quests (escorts or trainees during callings) didn't avec the AI system either.

    I think NPC following you around like with Legion followers as bodygards was fine in outdoor content, but it's a bad idea for dungeons. You'll either wait for your NPC to catch up with you or need to follow them around with no control over them, because with the AI system they'll act on their own. If not, they're basically pets that attack what you attack and it's pointless, really. Dungeons then become like Torghast, and it's not supposed to be that.

    Dungeons are really accessible right now - more than ever actually. You can experience the story with ease doing the Normal mode, with really low difficulty. If your idea of dungeons with AI is smaller or trivial rewards, it's already that with Normal mode.

    Looks like somebody gathered a bunch of player wishes form this forum and wrapped them up into a possible leak, pure bs.

    The OP is not a credible source. Not like that was needed.

    Not even a possible leak. It's just a collection of mechanics with no information about the setting, which makes no sense given how Blizzard works.

    exactly. I'm sorry, forgot to add quotes. into a "possible leak"

    Why post this spam if you yourself admit to it being not credible?

    Besides, as Huth said, not at all how Blizzard operates. They'd have some vague theme first before going into mechanics, especially this early.
