So either all those elves are going there to live out in the woods, or we'll never see them again because the raid will always be a raid.
    The tree isn't fully grown in the Raid or the Dream, there isn't a settlement yet.

    Eclipse is the new <X of Dragons>.

    Imo still firmly against basic name marketing that Blizzard employs. Eclipse is totally and completely generic. Is it about Elune? Does it just take place on the moon? Is it metaphorical and referring to void invasion? Is it metaphorical and a play on light and void?

    It's also worth noting that Fyrakk's attack on Amirdrassil along with bringing the Firelands over is similar to what Ragnaros tried to achieve when Deathwing summoned him.

    And since Iridikron is reserved for the next expansion (supposedly), he's gonna be the next "Deathwing" and bring about an elemental chaos with the Primalists helping him (who we still know nothing about their organization.)

    Not to mention the Elemental themes throughout most of the Dragonflight dungeons as well as with each of the previous expansion dungeon pools, dungeons with very on the nose elemental themes have been chosen (Vortex Pinnacle, Throne of the Tides).

    Saying DF isn't mostly elemental, next to dragons ofcourse, is quite the take. We have Elemental dragons. An elemental pre patch. Every zone has one element as main influence and the list goes on.

    No clue how representative the detailing is but that looks like 2 separate WoW demo areas?

    Noticed that as well - would make sense one for classic one for retail.

    A "Corridor of Time" being inbetween the retail and classic demo areas makes sense in that case as well.

    Cuz right now I'm under the assumption that 10.2 will be the final major raid.
    Very possible, since there could potentially be another mega dungeon like Dawn of the Infinite where we kill him.

    I do believe the argument was literally that Dragonflight is an elemental expansion. Which is nonsense.

    There is a World Quest where a little Pandaren is having a dream and creating monsters by accident in the Emerald Dream. You have to get rid of them.

    There's also a few dialogues scattered around from Druids saying they had dreams about the Dream when they were young. which may be some new lore they are seeding.

    If you combine the two things, then its implied that Panda is set to be a Druid when he grows up.

    Well Drustvar itself displays just how much the Drust involves death. It's all over that landmass.

    The Bwonsamdi storyline was pretty much small fry. Certainly not enough for it to be considered the secondary theme of an expansion. It was a HvA expansion with the Old Gods as the secondary theme.
    Bwonsamdi alone? No. Bwondsamdi alongside the Drust alongside Sylvanas using the war to collect souls for the Jailer does make it a secondary theme. Which is why BFA so easily led to Shadowlands.

    A lot of elemental stuff doesn't mean that it's an elemental expansion though. Everything elemental-based in this expansion is in service to the overarching dragon themes.

    Dragons came from elementals.
    They're literally proto-dragons. They're simply infused with elemental power, just like the flights are infused with order magic.

    Yeah, you're clearly overblowing the influence of elementals in this expansion. If you want to believe that this is an elemental expansion instead of a dragon expansion with an elemental sub theme., that's your opinion and you're welcome to it.

    To the point that they became Elementals again yes.

    I don’t see how this expansion isn’t an elemental one.
    Prepatch was an elemental invasion. Main villains are elementals/elemental cultists. So far 2/3 raids are heavily themed around elementals with the next patch having us fight and kill the lord of fire.
    Zones are heavily involving the elements… the list goes on.


    You want an elemental expansion? You’re playing one now.

    A WoW Corridor of Time Installation 100% points to either a multiverse themed expansion or an old world revamp.

    I'm beginning to thing you wouldn't accept an elemental themed expansion is elemental themed unless it has the Elemental Lords. Because we have a dragon made of fire summoning the firelands in order to burn up the world. They couldn't be more elemental if they tried.

    Funny thing is too that we even fight an elemental lord this xpac and it’s still not enough.
