    Season of Mastery will launch sometime in November with 9.2 releasing end of q1 2022.

    I have seen some art and assets for the next expansion. It will feature a remade Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. Gnomeragen is an actual city the undead have cleared Stathholme and that is a new city.

    I have seen some models for player housing beds, drawers and different house tiers ect but I don't know how it will be implemented.

    You should've posted this on 4chan. At least there is no chance of your info being handed over to the lawyers for breaking NDA. The fact that it wasn't makes me inclined to believe that this is a LARP.

    Bleh if true. Would be more fun if Anduin shanked the Jailer and became the final boss.

    Quite the coincidence that the climatic battle of Shadowlands would resemble the climatic battle of Shadowbringers, with the final battle taking place atop a tower that the heroes had cleared in a raid long ago.

    Would be cool but I doubt the writers care about the old world. They certainly wouldn't care enough to revamp Gnomeragen or Stratholme.

    If WoW player housing was done on the same level as Lego Universe, it would be the most amazing housing system ever. Doubt it will be, though. Being on the same level as FFXIV would be pretty good, though, especially if WoW was able to side step's FFXIV's atrocious issues like having such a small decor cap or the limited housing spaces. Please allow decor to be resized and tilted like in Wildstar.

    Starting soon this year, aren't we?

    Also, throw some creativity in there, no 'wow factor' whatsoever, just plain blandness.

    the sad part is that even if this leak is true, all it does is make me wonder how they are gonna screw it up again. shadowlands sounded awesome. and yet the story, game design, class design, systems, and almost everything else has led to the biggest exodus of players in the games history. we may not know the numbers but the last time wow had a big exodus (wod) another mmo didn't suddenly become popular and gain tons of former wow players.

    i genuinely prefer wow over every other mmo on the market and would leave ff14 in a heartbeat if wow became a good game again. but i doubt that's going to happen. it seems blizzard these days only deals in extremes. extreme grinds, extreme lawsuits, extreme egos, extreme pandering.

    I doubt they would remake Kalimdor and the EK in their entirety. WoW continents have been getting smaller and smaller with each expansion. Shadowlands just had 5 zones. 5 zones isn't enough to do even half of Kalimdor.

    If Blizzard were to remake Kalimdor or EK today, they would either 1. only remake certain zones, or 2. would remake the continent at a far smaller scale, probably omitting a lot of zones.

    The OP's account was made the day of the post, and half of you are replying as if it's real. First off, an intern saw and heard things? That's a lot of detail for an intern from one specific department to see and find out about. I mean who's he interning for Ion? John Hight?

    Stop being so dumb MMoC, it's not real.
    I don't care if it is real, this kind of stuff is just too fun to let it pass

    This makes the thing a bit more believable tbh...

    That does make it more believable TBH, "No 'Wow factor' whatsoever, just plain blandness" is a good description for the SL story so far.

    I think you're underestimating the dire situation blizzard is in right now. they are finally relinquishing to player demands because of the very real threat of financial loss from their cash cow.

    at this point anything less than an entire old world revamp won't cut it for 10.0, and blizzard knows this. 10.0 will be pulling out every straw to reinvigorate interest
