    There's a saying, "there's no such thing as halfway crooks" - in this case there totally is, just because NDA is broken on one thing doesn't mean you can go ham and spill everything, especially when what is being said is ambiguous to a fault.

    Exactly. As soon as you say "Hey, we're working on a Dragon-based class for 10.0!" You've crossed the Rubicon into violation territory, and if Gleepot's story is true, the Rubicon was crossed over and over again. So why is the name of the class and race suddenly off-limits? If this source is willing to break the NDA on 10.0 and even 11.0, then giving you the names of the next race and class shouldn't be a problem. You want to know why it's a problem?

    Because it's fake, that's why. Again, a group of forum users would have great difficulty coming up with a name for a future dragon race or class, but a Blizzard dev would not. If a Blizzard dev is dumping this much information on you, they're going to tell you what the next race and class are called (or you're going to ask). If you're going to ask the status of Dark Rangers and Tinkers, you're going to ask what the next race and class are called.

    And btw, if you're worried about getting your source in trouble, you wouldn't be posting this info on a forum in the first place. Just saying......

    I am more than happy to concede here but just as a thought experiment/analogy what about this:

    The speed limit is 45 MPH - as long as I'm below that I'm cool in the eyes of the law

    I'm at 46 MPH - I am currently breaking the law but not by much

    from what you said once the law (NDA) is broken why hold back?

    There's a big difference between going 46 MPH and 60/70/100 MPH (a simple ticket to jail time/car being impounded)

    I would say 46-50MPH would be giving vague hints at future features vs 70-100 MPH giving away very specific things the new xpac would have to offer

    And both with the law and NDA's - the enforcement of said things are fluid up to a point, as long as you are being cautious (don't go too fast/don't leak too much) you can get away with it!

    Yeah, it doesn’t work like that. Not even close. Just confirming that the next class in WoW is Dragon-based with two DPS specs and a Healing spec is not vague, it’s highly specific. That alone is a massive NDA breach, because from that you know that there’s another WoW class on the way, what it can do, and that the next expansion heavily involves dragons. Doing that ruins Blizzard’s big expansion reveal, and the perp who did it probably isn’t going to hired by another gaming company after Blizzard fires them.

    Honestly, just confirming that the next expansion will have a new class or race alone could illicit a similar consequence.

    I can leak 10.0 for everyone here. the new torghast will be your character taking a leak.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    False equivalence. Speeding has different degrees because when you start going faster, you begin putting lives at risk. When it comes to contracts, you are hurting yourself and the company you work for. Companies don't care if all you did was breach the NDA just a little bit. ANY breach is serious and you will be severely punished for doing it.

    This is the only "leak" worth taking the time to read and devote any amount of thought to thus far, and is certainly well-timed. It is generic enough that it is most likely just a pairing of some firmly established desires of a portion of the playerbase with some untapped dangling threads. Wrathion, and Chromie too, were pretty heavily teased in Bfa after all, so it's fairly safe to bet on dragons playing a role in an upcoming expansion. I find playable Black dragons to be unlikely though, even if Wrathion's revival of the flight is bound to play a major role when we finally visit the Dragon Isles. I suppose Blizzard could have come up with a satisfactory way to handle a single race that chooses a faction so long after MoP, but that bit reads like wishful thinking to me. These forums have long associated 10.0 with a world revamp, whether minor or major, but I wouldn't write that off too hastily. I am biased due to being strongly in favour of a revamp, so wishful thinking is absolutely swaying my opinion on this aspect, but I do believe that it would be convenient to implement as a follow-up to Shadowlands.

    Blah blah blah. Basically... I know better than to put my faith in this concept, but I would be very satisified if elements of it came true. Bring on the world revamp and Black Dragonflight rebirth. Toss that Azeroth talent tree and all those expansion-specific abilities in the garbage.

    The same question has been going on since WOD? Come on, you have 10 years here you should know better already. It's NOT going to be your precious Dragon Isles.
    Remember recently before SL was announced? MMO-C was spammed nearly daily with "omg Dragon Isles is next!". Can you see the pattern ?

    Well, there always is some truth in leaks like this.

  9. #389
    I think its pretty dumb

    also story seems illogical (anyway when did Blizzard ever care for logical continuation of story?)

    and cosmetic stuff mentioned. I think it is not real

    while Blizzard made such concept before and later even used small bits of it (remember in WoD there was concept of adding quivers and ammunition and updating their visuals as player progresses?and it never made out)
    so I think it too makes no sense

    anyway
    2/10 for attempt and too bad concept even for Blizzard standards

    cinematic would be neat tbh

    I mean look at all the shit they promise at the announcement of an expansion that ends up laying on the cutting room floor. Dark Trolls, Abyssal Maw raid, Azjol Nerub as a zone, new capital cities in AU Draenor, Faralohn and the Ogre Isles, Path of the Titans, Dance Studio, etc. And those are all the things we KNOW of.

    So if a leak even gets out that's 100% accurate, then it's very likely going to contain some internal concepts that just never make it live, and never even get announced or publicly known unless it gets far enough down the pipe to actually be datamined-before-being-cut. If not, stuff like Mongrel Horde could be absolutely leakable information, while we wouldn't know about it being legitimate had the developers never released concept art and talked about it existing. If it weren't for the interviews, people would be all 'remember that fake Mongrel Horde idea'.
    this post explains leaks and concepts nicely

    mongrel horde idea was very dumb. glad it did not make it. idk if it would be worse than WoD

    Sorry bud, but 100% the isles will be 10.0.

    So now you've seen one that isn't just a random guess. An actual leak from before WoD was announced.

    This was leaked by insider information. You can see, there's still information wrong, very likely because of in-development changes, or 'telephone' inaccuracies/assumptions being made.

    Posted 4 days before actual announcement.
    Right. Even if we assume that one is an actual honest-to-god leak from a true WoW developer, how does that change my original statement that 99.9% of the """"""""""leaks"""""""""" are either pure bullshit from those who want to stir up drama (TiNkEr NeXt ClAsS!1! FoUr SpEcZ!1) or just dumb wish-lists poorly disguised as """"""""""leaks""""""""""?

    It's the meme for these fake leaks. People have meme'd Shadowlands as WotLK 2.0 since that leak season, so of course this time around it would be Cataclysm 2.0.


    I await supposed leaked images/artwork for the beginning of the real leak season.

    "Friend"? You assume a lot. And even if the poster and this "dev" are actual friends, if it is something you're interested in-- to the point of not just allowing but enabling your friend to break NDA, which would put him in serious legal trouble-- I doubt one would not ask for specifics on things that would be of interest to the community, namely the name of the new race.

    Remember that this "dev" gave specific names for Shadowland's last world boss (Garaddon, son of Galakrond) and also the name of Azeroth's titan world soul (Azeroth the Eternal). But somehow the playable race's name is too much to reveal?

    NDAs don't have "varying levels of punishment", in which you only get a slap on the wrist if you reveal a tiny thing. No, if you break the NDA, no matter how little, you break the NDA. And even if NDAs had "varying levels of punishment", the amount of information this supposed "dev" has leaked would put them way past just a simple 'slap on the wrist' and would likely already be facing heavy punishment if they got caught.

    You didnt say 99%, you are changing your original statement of them either being fake or random guesses. Don't lie. I have no reason to point out your own statement if you had said 99% were fake.

    You said all the ones you've seen were fake, so I was clarifying whether you were acknowledging the existence of any that you may not have seen as real insider leaks, or if you were dismissing them all. Don't just change your original statements for the sake of it, I'm not looking to point out anything you said being wrong, just clarifying what you said. Again, stop lying about it for the sake of 'being right', just clarify and move on jeez.

    Uh-huh. My first post in this thread, in its entirety:

    I don't think I've ever seen an actual "real leak", and those that get lauded as "true leaks" just end up being those who just managed to guess SOME things right in it.

    If this is real, I wonder what the dragon racials would be.

    Every race has at least one utility racial and one throughput racial. One is usually passive and the other is active.

    Maybe have throughput be a passive ramp up racial. Call it Draconic Blood. Stacks as you do damage / heals, at X stacks they get consumed to give you a dmg buff or stat buff. Animation is a pair of draconic wings sprout from your back, like the Cata rogue leggo.

    Now, if we're gonna have a racial that turns us into dragon form, then this will be the active/utility racial.

    What if when we activate it we lose all of our class active abilities and gain access to a handful of draconic ones.

    Maybe a wing beat for push back, tail swipe for knock down or short stun, Fire breath is a given. Maybe have the transformation give a health boost, like a mini BM trinket.

    There is zero chance something as complex as that would be a racial. At best, it might be a simple brief cone attack for a small amount of damage. The utility part would obviously being a flight form, like Worgen's Running wild.

    Must be combat utility. Tauren for example have brawn that gives added crit dmg as passive throughput and warstomp as an aoe stun as active combat utility.

    Orcs have their blood fury active dmg boost, and Hardy passive to reduce stun duration.

    Thats what I mean by utility.

    Maybe your right and that might be too complex, but the active ability MUST turn you into a dragon somehow in combat, otherwise whats the point of playing a dragon.

    Maybe make it a channel ability where either you breathe fire or beat your wings to knock back depending what you choose and have it share a CD like the goblin racial. On top of the dragon blood racial I mentioned.

    this is still the most "logical" leak, at this point all the leaks hint towards dragon isles which most think is likely, or maybe its all misdirection from blizz

    as for the NDA talk... there are various levels of punishment for breaking NDAs. I've been and am under countless NDAs and it comes down to data classification (Again something I've dealt with in corp and military environments) Leaking the next expect involves dragons will get a light punishment, leaking the detailed features, and maybe even images will get you sued/fired/black listed in the industry.

    No it isn't. This was the most logical leak:

    https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...nge-Of-SolGate

    Fast Questions
    -No world revamp, they only plan to update zones 'as needed'
    -No new races in 10.0 but Nelfs get 'night fae satyr' and horde gets san'layn with venthyr looks
    -New class is 'Dragon knight' mail class, only two spec, DPS or heal, all races
    -There's no big timeskip, that was a misunderstanding from an interview, apparently they joke about it a lot
    -Next was already supposed to be Light/Void fighting over 'life' and then 11.0 would be 'Time', but the feedback on cosmic stuff made them decide to make the light/void stuff 'more grounded' so it's on azeroth and not in the 'lifelands' so it's all up in the air
    -No player housing
    -The big new thing is 'more player choice'
    -Pre-Expac event has Botani from WoD going crazy and trying to mulch people to turn them into energy for the planet to keep it from dying
    -Rather than having one big flying achievement, there's a different smaller one for each zone
    -Blizz is very happy with how keystones worked, and are gonna make them a timewalking thing too


    SL end stuff
    -We stop Jailor but Azeroth is starting to die from having her energy drained into the first ones machines
    -Pelagos tries to put the energy back but then the machines break because of the damage from our fight with Zovaal
    -The rift is closing so we have to leave soon but they don't close anything off in gameplay it's purely a lore thing to flavor the 9.2.5 patch
    -a devourer gets out of shadowlands and it's talked about as 'really bad' apparently devourers are gonna be 'the new void' after light / void stuff

    -Arthas is freed from Anduin's sword and says goodbye to Jaina and Uther before turning into a kid and running off to ghost Terenas
    -Tyrande tells Sylvanas to work forever fixing souls in the maw who don't deserve to be there
    -Bolvar stays in the Maw to keep an eye on Sylv and do the jailor's actual job, Taelia is all sad but is nursing anduin back to health

    -Tyrande and winter queen fix the nelf souls in the maw from Teldrassil with her night warrior power and cause a 'nightfae satyr' type allied race to spawn for alliance, some of the revived nelfs are even more faithful to Elune and others 'don't forgive her'
    -Giving up night warrior power and surviving 'weakened' Tyrande so she has to rest, to explain why we don't see her for awhile.

    -Kael and Sylv teach the San'layn and her loyalist dark rangers/forsaken venthyr stuff and they join the Horde to help forsaken and belfs, but also to 'balance Calia' who has some ominous lines about 'eternal light' cause death sucks

    -Pelagos swears he and the eternals will make the shadowlands 'a realm of choices'


    10.0 Stuff
    -Azeroth is dying but it's slow, thrall talks about how it's reminding him of Outland crumbling. Magni says Azeroth can't speak anymore, Basically a coma.
    -Anduin is still all traumatized and nearly shanks Wrathion when he shows up, Wrathion says he found a way to use the Dragon Isles to heal azeroth
    -The Dragon isles are floating islands that move, which is why mortals almost never find them
    -With azeroth dying the islands are slowly lowering, with the Black Dragonflight isle finally touching the sea and is the 'gateway' to the others
    -The islands are being invaded by light/void forces that both want to be the ones to 'heal' azeroth and gain influence over its power
    -The Aspects imbue some mortals with power to help fight back the invasions, this is where the new Class comes from
    -Turalyon wants to help the Light and Alleria wants to spy on both invasions

    -There's like, a whole bunch of new kinds of dragons that only live on the isles cause they went extinct elsewhere
    -The dragon isles has 'dragon kobolds' that guard the dragons and are super serious, apparently the ones in the game before were all cursed exiles
    -Dragons are 'evolved elementals' and every planet has them, ours are just special cause of titan blessings 'speeding up their evolution'

    -Malfurion helps 'channel a new aspect' for green dragons since, unclear whether they meant that Malf is doing the aspect thing like Thrall in Cata or whether he helps pick a new green dragon
    -Ethereals and Brokers are both doing jobs on the Blue Dragon island and players get to pick a side
    -Bronze island has Nozdormu 'lightbound' and then we make Murozond when we free him with void energy and he splits into a bunch of copies and escapes, apparently the one we kill in endtime was only a piece of him
    -Red Island has dragons being hunted by rebel dragonmaw that are voidcrazy from Twilight Highlands and the Horde have to kill them
    -Horde capital is the black dragon den where Deathwing got corrupted by old gods
    -Alliance capital is 'Tyrs secret base'

    -Odyn and the Valarjar are invading cause he thinks dragons can't do their job
    -Yrel will show up in a patch with AU Garrosh
    -There are arakkoa on both the light and void invasions that want to take the energy from Azeroth to fix Draenor
    -Anduin will do something with Xal'atah
    -Sire Denathrius is going to get Lightbound, the Dreadlords are split between serving him or trying to free him
    -Asked about Azshara and was told she's not in this expac cause 'she's not thinking about just one planet anymore'
    -The void is corrupting sky whales
