    Can we stop talking about this ""leak"" now?
    wush thank god.

    Hopeful they WILL actually focus on then, beyond adding multiple hair color options, cause i mean, there is a limit of colors the human eye can see

    While I agree this leak is probably true and just jumped on Scaleface info. There is still no confirmation.
    The dev basically say have no sure plan for 10.0 and that they focus on Drac'thyr

    Which mean that if another race if already done for a 9.2.5 or another update before 10.0, an allied race is still a possibility.

    maybe its not an allied race but a new customization like the night elves night warrior.

    if it has to do with calia, maybe a undead customization with the undead dark ranger elf model, or the undead humans like the scholomance bosses

    maybe they didnt announce preorder yet because its not properly finished

    still too early to know tho

    Nozdormu says: Still, in time, I will... fall to madness. And you, heroes... will vanquish me. The cycle will repeat. So it goes.
    Nozdormu says: What matters is that Azeroth did not fall; that we survived to fight another day.
    Nozdormu turns away from where Murozond died and looks up at the Hourglass of Time.
    Nozdormu says: All that matters... is this moment.

    So bringing him in to be a raid would be a retcon. Note in the above dialogue, Nozdormu knew this moment was coming.



    And yet, the new raid could take place during any moment of Muruzond's life between now and the day he dies in the End Times dungeon.

    Jesus, Dark Ranger friends. Your shot was in Shadowlands, it's over. No Dark Rangers, sorry. Move on. We're on to Dragons and Adventure. Just be happy Tinker friends didn't get what they wanted either.

    Here's a DeepL Translation of the relevant question from this interview:

    Will we be able to play as a Sethrak?

    Patrick Dawson: "Allied races are a very important topic, a lot of people come to us even colleagues who ask "can I play as a sethrak?" or murloc, or centaur etc. There are always ideas though when we add a race to WoW we want to make sure that there is a clear intention behind the decision. We'll discuss this with the team, you never know what we're going to add, there's no clear plan for 10.0 we're really focusing on the Dracthyrs."

    Just what we need, the Terminator sequels of WoW expansions. As if the alternate universe wasn't enough.

It could explain why pre-orders are not out even though some of their Dragonflight e-mails have "pre-purchase" as part of the link in the e-mail.
    Dates get shifted and pushed back all the time, so I wouldn't discredit anyone on dates alone.

    A lot of people in this thread don't seem to take into account that Blizzard are highly unlikely to add an Allied race for only one of the two factions. Most likely, it's going to be a race for both factions.

    In that regard, Tuskarr would make sense. Darkfallen, not so much.

    After what Danuser said about the plot of Dragonflight, no they are not.

    What did he say? I mean I'm not expecting them to come up with good stuff, I just could see them be less dismissive about the details, unlike the stuff their predecessors made.
    #1) MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    #2) Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    KayRule is spreading false information. That Breakflip interview specifically asked about "Centaur, Furblog, Murloc, Sethrek & Gnoll" allied races, to which they said there's no storyline that would facilitate them being allied races in 10.0.... There's no confirmation a different allied race isn't coming in 9.2.5 - Only those 4 are ruled out.

    Will we be able to play as a Sethrak?

    Patrick Dawson: "Allied races are a very important topic, a lot of people come to us even colleagues who ask "can I play as a sethrak?" or murloc, or centaur etc. There are always ideas though when we add a race to WoW we want to make sure that there is a clear intention behind the decision.

    This doesn't rule out anything about 9.2.5 - Fine that they're focusing on Dracthyr because any allied race designed for 9.2.5 would have been created before them.

    That's just one timeline. We're already past Endtime because Deathwing didn't destroy the planet.

    Case in point. We could fight Murozond in every single raid from now until WoW gets shut down and kill him each time and it would still never be a retcon.

    If they're fast and start testing by mid may, we may get a november release - as "leaked" by Scaleface. If they're on the slower side of things, I'd say february 23 would be a good bet.
    I really can't see the logic of november release. It seems too soon, no matter how I turn it around. Given we still have 4th season of SL ahead of us and I think that they are buying time.

    Q1 is where all my money is(feb. more specific).

    Shadowlands wasn't done when 9.0 released.

    Then again, while i don't give a rats ass, more people want those than Ogres and i can get behind them as a more unique thing. We will see if this isnt just another stupid hoax.
    Yay more dev time wasted on a race that nobody will play just like mecha gnomes and fat humans. People like to play attractive races I realize that mmo champ doesn't understand this but numbers show it. If anything the vampires from ICC would be a much better use of time because people would play them.

    I cant answer your question but i can tell you that the dude you where asking the question to has literally not had anything positive to say about anything in a long time. All his posts are negative, every single one. I wouldnt expect any reasoning behind it, he is just angry.

    I honestly think Blizzard has tried to take the lore seriously but i think they have mostly done a poor job of telling their stories in wow lately. Especially the motivations and feelings of the characters that we are supposed to root for or hate have just been really hard to follow in general.

    The Sylvanas book really did a lot to explain what was going on, but its not in the game. I think their major problem is that they are trying to push too much of a narrative into too short of a spawn of ingame time.

    A character in a game that changes allegiances multiple times in an expansion(soul split or not) is just really hard to follow.

    Anyway i'm rambling: i just hope blizzard learns to tell smaller stories in the game or at least span them out over a longer period of time.

    You think it's standard/expected, that they are releasing unfinished projects or what should I understand from the message?

    Revendreth was the only zone I enjoyed of SL and even I'm lukewarm on the quasi Vamps as ARs.

    Gargoyles wouldve been a better choice imho. But I'll gladly settle for vampires.
