    Without joking, I think there was a scenario in a recent expansion where you enter the stockades and it is hinted that the hogger in there was only someone in a suit.

    There must always be a ominous crash of lightning Hogger.

    I don't really care for a world revamp for reasons of modernization, but I think it would be really cool to see what the passage of time has done to the "old world". Especially with probably less death, destruction and worldending doom happening than in Cata. More room for "classic" adventures and so on.

    Figured I'd assemble some tweets from WoW devs. Got any more?

    Christie Golden's "Azeroth is home" part is really fun to read. My heart hopes it's a revamp hint.

    I kinda like Chris' bit about "how the world unfolds over the next few years". It might be nothing, but it feels like the world will see some major development.

    Whether that's a revamp, or major new landmasses being found, or even just the story branching out into more games and stuff, I dunno. But I'm excited!

    I honestly struggle to think what could bring as much hype as a revamp but I refuse to get my hopes up.

    Cataclysm was the hypest expansion reveal WoW has ever had and I don't think anything will ever top that.

Teldrassil at least does that (but not much more).

    I think every WoD, Legion and BfA all did amazing reveals.

    My issue with the big Cataclysm-like world revamp theory is the Dragon Isles were designed to be the new player leveling experience, replacing BFA. It strikes me as odd that they would then immediately revamp the old world to yet again create a new player leveling experience.

    I wonder when people think of starting zones if they think of Vanilla or Cataclysm. I still tend to think of Vanilla zones, but I'm sure for most players those versions are unknown or distant.

    That being said, Tirisfal is right on the money. Cata Forsaken were awesome.

    Do we know that for a fact or is that just something we assume? Honestly Dragon Isles as the new player experience is fucking weird to me. New player experience to an entirely different game maybe. Ofc they can follow it up with more of the same.

    100% agree. Best reveal trailer for sure.

    Elwynn in particular lost so much when all the Defias were effectively converted to random bandits.

    Totally agree. Post-Cata I've always been Horde, but the Vanilla Human leveling pipeline of Elwynn > Westfall > Darkshire will always have my heart

    Hope the Human heritage quest indicates we'll see a form of them again.

    Don't get me wrong, they all had great reveal trailers, especially BfA and Legion (and then again, I am biased because it hits different because that was the one reveal I was there for in person), however, nothing comes close to Cata.

    They dared to scrap the entire world.

    This shot of the Barrens having a huge chasm broke my small kid brain.

    Along with that, having Goblins and Worgen, two of the most requested races, and Tauren Paladins or Troll Druids, new race and class combinations, something unprecedented.

    In hindsight, yeah, it's quaint, but back then it was the hypest shit ever. The only thing that came close to that was the shot of a Blood Elf wielding the Ashbringer and then the reveal of Artifact weapons.

    I'd need to find the interview but I'm like 99% certain it was confirmed a few months ago

    I agree. To this day I'm sad that we didn't get Worgen Alpha models. Especially the female ones. I kinda wished they introduced updated models in 8.2 based on them. Still not too late to give us a taste in Cataclysm Classic if it happens. And then the Beta came... Regardless of all that, I remember being 12 when it came out and was super excited to open the christmas present that had the CD box.

    Dragonflight as the new player experience is a bad idea. It's not a good way for people to get used to the Warcraft setting at all.

    It's really not. It's the most independent expansion. There's hardly any old characters.

    Edit: I take it back a never watch any of the mythic+ races and don't care for any of these guilds outside of race to world first. Even then world first is who has the most money now.
