    Adding some unknown "classes" like Minstrel And Cronomancer (calm your tits, not saying it doesn't exist or doesn't work) while using bigger known archetypes as skins.

    If something I think Minstrel and Cronomancer would be class skins.

    Though, I think this leak mostly just got the name correct. Will probably be some more info in this leak that will turn out to be true, or true by interpretation, as well.
    The leak also got the Lordaeron/Tiristfal revamp correct along side Eversong and that is already happening on PTR in 9.2.5. How do you guess a name, 2 revamps so early on? It was posted back in February.

    The only red flags to me are No leveling, Dalaran main city again this would be 3rd time..... and the 4 micro classes.

    Also, the Dark Ranger skins make a lot of sense there is a questline with them in 9.2.5 if I am not mistaken.

    So I don't know it's very interesting. However, I do remember Blizzard stating somewhere that the next expansion is going to be VERY different from previous and unusual and honestly this fits the bill. We have to wait and see.

    Please no. You can't blame it on Afrasiabi this time Danuser.

    I think this might be a case of getting the name right but the details wrong. Imagine Blizzard finally introducing Tinkers and it's a one spec micro class. And Dalaran as a capital city again? Not without a major revamp.

    Dragon expansion would not be my favorite pick but aslong as we stay on azeroth and keep away from cosmic stuff that they are not doing a good job at im good.

    Also i remember the hype before bfa and sl and we know how that went so my hype levels are pretty low this time around.
    Do you hear the voices too?

    They randomly pick a fake leak that's rarely being considered/talked about, they take that name and register it on their site, and they also create some throwaway 'promotional art' with a fake logo on reddit to throw everyone off the scent.

    Think it's possible they're conning us with this one? Like they intentionally might know someone would try and datamine the website so they purposely throw a red herring our way?

    No leveling? *sadaltnoises*

    The leveling part at the start of every expansion is one of the best parts

    Also: Mini Tinker class. Oh boy. Some people will absolutly loose their shit in this forum.

    While i guess it is pretty much confirmed OP was on to SOMETHING. I am not convinced about the micro classes.
    Rest sounds plausible i guess. Proto-Demons is weird. Also nothing expect a bit of the classes and skins has anything to do with dragons which is a bit weird if the expansions NAME is dragonflight...

    I think its supposed to be the level cap stays at 60 while Shadowlands gets moved into 50-60, and everyone is squished back to 50 again which I doubt.

    There’s a chance, like with shadowlands, that people just took a shot in the dark on the title and got it right without actually knowing anything.
    We had a dungeon boss straight up name drop the expansion though, what in Shadowlands has pointed to the next expansion being about the dragonflights?

    it wasnt screenshots, it was descriptions of concept art they had to work with.
    the screenshots was just of the description, guy eventually leaked em all though, and it was not what we see here.

    Makes sense if player housing is a thing. Plans for chairs, tables, beds, cupboards, drawers etc. Tailors could make wall hangings, bed sheets, curtains and so on. Blacksmiths could make other stuff for the house. But I think everything except the title of this leak is fake.

    datamined dragon mount
    dragon bundle
    tons of dragon stuff in bfa
    a bit of dragon stuff in shadowlands including the oracle speaking the major powers, void, demonic, death, and then... draconic?

    IMO, One of the best changes wow brought us years ago were the multi-specialization system. At least in Vanilla or BC where the system wasn't implemented, If you wanted to play a class and their specializations you could farm money and change your talents. The new micro-classes system is even worse. In Fact, now you are restricted to play only 1 spec, and you cann't change it. Same with the gear, in Vanilla and BC you could play as a Tank and could get the gear that nobody needed and play other roles. Now you have to farm gear for every micro-class alter. I suppose that the logic is just money. They suppose that we will spend more time playing wow cause we have more characters to equip.

    I love when new classes are introduced, even if I didn't play them. But if this become real, i'm not playing this xpa.

    Yeah, this is BS, OP just guessed the name right, which wasn't too hard.

    Plus people would be upset about all the alts they spent time leveling. It's a much better system, WoW can't easily go to it after so long though.

    If microclasses is real it sounds like an awful leveling experience that's for sure.
    Microclasses do not make any sense whatsoever. 1 spec and if you want to do anything else then reroll a new class?

    Healer want to farm/do world content? I mean its possible but no thanks lol.

    Its not happening. Like there is no reason to even intertain the idea. It would literally be the worst idea ever.

    It does feel like somebody saw that FFXIV did it and then forgot to read the part where FFXIV allows one char to be every class.

    Since the expansion title seems to be probably correct, I'll humor this one with an analysis/commentary of my own.

    Quote Originally Posted by Chromatus View Post

    I had to look up Chromatus on Wowpedia because I had no idea who you were talking about. If I'm not mistaken, Chromatus has only been mentioned in novels until now.

    Normally I'd say that makes for a pretty poor expansion villain since most people won't even know who they're fighting, but seeing as Blizzard pulled the Jailer out of their collective ass without any prior set-up, Chromatus would actually have more legitimacy as a major antagonist than the Jailer ever did. +1

    6 disconnected zones (2 of them being revamps).

    Dragon Isles. Technically its own continent though it’s just one zone split into multiple maps. Floating islands between the Broken Isles and Northrend.
    I really dislike it when they do disconnected zones, and I think Blizzard is aware that they're not super popular either, so I somehow doubt that they would give us just more of the same after SL. I don't want another hub-style expansion setting, and I don't think Blizzard does either. -1

    4 new micro classes (1 spec each) instead of one full new class.
    The only way I can see this happening is if the classes are usable only in outdoor content or some other type of limited activity (i.e. Blue Mages from FF14). But if these "micro classes" were all usable in PvE and PvP without any limitations... Well, I don't even want to consider the balancing nightmare that creates. -1

    Class ‘skins’ for some preexisting classes.
    Plausible. Sub-races were also just a popular fan theory until Blizzard made them into Allied Races. In a lot of ways I feel like class skins are the new "sub-race fan theory" in this regard, and I think Blizzard must have realized the potential in implementing them. +1

    Player housing.
    I don't care for player housing personally but it has been a popular request over the years so I can see Blizzard caving in to the demands. If they can pull it off in a good way, good on them I guess. +1

    Carpenter and Logger professions.
    Makes sense if Player Housing is being added. It would be about time we got some new professions, actually. I don't remember the last expansion that added any...

    Dalaran capitol city.
    Don't fix it if it ain't broke, lol. I mean, it does make sense to bring a floating city with us if we're going to a bunch of floating isles. But I find it funny that Blizzard would just keep recycling Dalaran over and over—but I also can't blame them because it's a really well designed city.

    No level cap increase.
    Rewards from Shadowlands just get scaled down. Everything in 10.0 is max level content (level 60) with no level squish, so there is no need to level if you already have max level characters. Progression is just endgame progression.
    This. Sounds. Stupid.

    Leveling is a core part of the MMO experience imo, and working your way up to the new level cap (or trying to speedrun it) when a new expansion rolls out is almost like a massive community event. Removing levels and focusing purely on endgame progression sounds extremely anti-fun and anti-MMO. -2

    Lordaeron. Revamped Tirisfal/Plaguelands. Scarlet/Light focus.
    Quel’thalas. Revamped Eversong/Ghostlands.
    I think this is trying a bit too hard to make something out of the datamined Tirisfal/Ghostlands stuff. I don't think any of these zones will be revamped. -1

    Silvermoon is a hostile city like Suramar.
    Sounds terrible. So they would finally revamp the city to meet modern standards after ~15 years and then turn it into a hostile get-fucked zone like Suramar that we can't even hang out in? No way, lol. -1

    Undermine. City-zone beneath Kezan. Criminals and Uncrowned story. Fully underground.
    Eh, maybe. I don't really see how this fits with the overall dragon theme, but I could see Undermine added as a Mechagon-style patch zone. +1

    Balor. Halfling race dealing with primordial fel enemies (think proto-demons, like what the Shadowlands creatures are to undead).
    I don't even know what the hell I just read here but I don't like any of it. -1

    Uldaz. Second fully underground zone ever on Azeroth. Titan/Elune story here.
    If anything, Dragon Isles should have Uldorus. Uldaz sounds too exotic/Troll-ish for this setting. They're probably saving Uldaz for Tel'Abim. Yup.

    I do think there will probably be a Titan facility on the Dragon Isles so I'll give this one a point. +1

    Dragon Knight. Only one tank spec. Uses two-handed weapons, fire, plate armor and shouts.
    Why would they waste a dragon-themed class on something like this...? Especially since we know dragons are more than just tanks. This might work for a Black Dragon themed class, but Red dragons are healers, Blue dragons are mages, etc. etc. -1

    Tinker class. Only one damage-dealer spec. Uses guns, mail armor, gadgets and mech suits.
    Minstrel class. Only one healer spec. Uses leather, lutes, violins and panflutes.
    Chronomancer class. Only one healer spec. Uses cloth, time magic, and sand magic.
    I'm just gonna go ahead and say no to all of these at once. This entire "micro class" idea sounds stupid and completely impractical. -3

    Dark Ranger skin for Hunters. Dark spell effects. Tames undead instead of animals.
    As I mentioned above, class skins have been a popular fan theory/request for a while so they'll definitely happen sooner or later. So while this is the most believable part of your leak, it's not the most original. +1

    Necromancer skin for Warlocks. Plagues instead of curses. Summons undead instead of demons.
    Sounds cool, sure, why not. +1

    Nightmare skin for Druids. Corrupted spell effects and animal forms. Can unlock wildly different forms (that play the same as normal druids) like snakes and spiders.
    Blizzard loves handing out more cool shit to druids, don't they?

    Dragonsworn skin for Shamans. Draconic spell effects and forms.
    No. Dragonsworn are going to be a class, not a random-ass skin for SHAMANS of all classes. -1

    Warden skin for Demon Hunters. Uses arcane and holy magic instead of fel.
    Sounds neat but kind of far-fetched as a DH class skin imo. But I guess that depends on how they plan to do them.

    Continued Order Hall stories, though only a select few and you pick them like Covenants. There are no gameplay differences between them, just different campaigns, mounts, mogs and companions.
    I'm all for bringing back Order Halls, but when your leak's new ground-breaking system is described as "like Covenants, but ...", I just find it hard to believe. It sounds lazy and unimaginative. -1

    Expansion announcement February 28th. Announcement for the announcement planned for the 18th. Goal is to release Q1 2023.
    Announcement date is already wrong. It's not even the date of the announcement of the announcement. -1

    Q1 2023 as a goal sounds awfully early to me but I guess it can happen if it's something like late March 2023.

    as much as I think it is bs as well
    let's be fair here
    we don't have classes anymore since a few expansions
    we have specs
    and each one is so "unique" you dont even feel you play a certain class anymore but a specc (or hero from a moba)
    back then you had one class with like 20 shared base abilities/attacks and 5 from each spec
    nowadays you have like 5 shared base abilities and 20 from each spec

    and as a healer you can do stuff in the open world since wrath

    The point is, that without a squish/reduction your stats would grow infinitly. Also MoP was the last Expansion that really added something for you to unlock through leveling. I don't know what you think you would lose through a stat squish. But I guarantee you that you will lose everything covenant and legendary related either way.
