That's why it's an in-universe book clearly written with an in-universe bias.

    Interesting.

    Nothing in 10.2 so far looks to be tied to any of that, maybe 10.2.5 or 10.2.7 will actually have some questline involving various races outside of dragon isles?

    Inquisitor Fairbell (not be confused for Inquisitor Fairbanks)
    and Huntmaster Scarborgh.
    These three along with large numbers of the Scarlet Crusade fled.

    Though it is unknown how the Scarlet Crusade had access to Fenris Isle when the area was under the Bloodfang Pack's jurisdiction.

    As for the whole Calia's child business... we still don't know, but it is a set up for the "upcoming revamp" (I say that because there are multiple hints suggesting that we're gonna go to some area to the west.)
    Seems like those 3 named NPCs are just lesser versions of the ones we know, Whitemane, Houndmaster etc. Interesting.

    I dunno. Bad things tend to happen when Aman'thul pulls things out of Azeroth.

    If I had a nickel, everytime shit happens, when Aman'thul plucks things from Azeroth, I'd have two nickles. Which isn't a lot, but it's weird it happened twice.

    Imagine if Aman'thul removed the Sword and sank Silithus, created an ocean and significantly altering the geography there. we could even have a whole expansion around it. World of Warcraft: Adventures of the Sword Coast or something similar. Rolls right off the tongue

    Come on now, you're being extremely negative now. Maybe Ol' Aman has a weird plucking fetish. Maybe he plucked all kind of stuff out of the planet. And now people still keep bringing up just the two times things didn't go exactly the way they wanted it to be. Negative Nancy's.

    To be accurate - he plucked Sargeras from Azeroth too. Its not like its a bad thing overall. 2/3 I must say.

    Well, that was more of a combined effort right? And it also kinda left Azeroth with a giant sword in her side. Maybe a 2,5/3. If we're generous.

    So this NPC from the latest build could just be a new M+ addition to Throne of the Tides (we'll have to see this testing weekend), but it would be eyebrow-raising given these blokes didn't exist at all in the lore back when TotT was current.

    If you take a looksee in the view in 3d option, it's a K'thir. :thinking:

    There is also a 'Mysterious Entity', but the placeholder(?) model is a decidedly squat frog... possibly devs having a laugh.

    That said, we don't know how much more Scarlets are there now, those pamphlets or someone is really trying to convince a lot of people to join their cause and push the Forsaken out.

    This could be due in large part to the Scourge being out of control now with the Helm of Domination gone, so now the Scarlets are extremely bolstered to root out any undead they see.

    I’m quite thankful for that.
    Weird to be thankful for something unconfirmed.
    It’s like being thankful for Undermine/Tinkers being in DF before the announcement.

    It’s very possible we get the Legion treatment with Ethereals starting on K’aresh and fleeing to Azeroth as part of the starting zone experience, just to return in a future patch.
    Perhaps Xal’atath, Azshara, or Iridikron would want some fragment of Dimensius’ power/essence that could’ve been left on K’aresh in trying to destroy it.

    Would explain why he was just a dungeon boss in BC when he was known for destroying planets. (Murmur was the same but it was at least explained that it was just a whisper of his power or whatever)

    So much would be solved if Zereth Ordos had send Aman'thul to a proper dermatologist instead of some aesthetician . . .

    Meh, he still absolutely makes sense given the context of the dungeon. Why not use them?

    He pulled an old god right out and that is what ended up creating the Well of Eternity in the center of Kalimdor.

    If he pulls out the Sword, he's gonna repeat the same thing and create a second Well of Eternity.

    Or Azeroth will just bleed out and die.

    But it being a gift from Elune? It was made by Freya. That much is fairly specific, from the artifact quest chains. I'd take this at it's face. A legend.

    But if I had to guess, G'hanir was in Hyjal/Winterspring.
    It's probably Un'Goro crater. It's a crater. Surrounded by deserts. With lots of unusual flora and fauna. It has a world tree in the Emerald Dream (Ylgynoth is parasiting it).

    Ok what if
    when Tyr wakes up we tell him everything that has happened since he died, he talks to us about Elun'Ahir and proposes we plant Amir'drassil THERE in order to seal the corruption we described finding in the Nightmare? New NElf Capital in Un'goro, close to Feralas were they have significant holdings.

    I hope Azeroths dies so we get a reset , on either a new world or on the ruins of what is left

    And if Blizz wanted to add more continents, there's big space on the north of Kalimdor and to the left of Northrend same way they added the Dragon Isles.. or they could've added one to that BIG space between the Eastern Kingdoms and Pandaria?
    No, no, they don't have to clarify anything obviously since you dismissed that moving Kalimdor has anything to do with making more space on the west side with:

    During BFA they updated the artwork for the maps, but they messed up by having Kalimdor too far away from the Maelstrom so in DF they fixed it.
    I thought someone mentioned that in an interview or something.

    But yeah, right side of the map seems to be a little overcrowded and it's just off-putting aesthetically so by moving Kalimdor closer to Maelstrom people jump to conclusion that they will place next thing to the left of Kalimdor. The whole concept of continents placement has been brought up on multiple Blizzcons, during many interviews and so on, therefore people love to go wild about ideas like "what's west of Azeroth?"
    That idea just adds up a little bit of topographical balance to the existing map, not that it has any particular impact on the gameplay really.
    And I believe that there's some magic to the "west" direction, whenever I think of that, it's always the missing part of the map: Middle-earth, Westeros, even Columbus discovering the path to India eventually sailed West, obviously for different reasons than just let's go West, but then again, kinda encapsulates the idea of "adventure"? I guess?

    And now the book talking all about the west. It' just fun to speculate on that

    I would indeed say that Squally and the Algarian Stormrider are very much related to eachother, both by key and by name.
    Same goes for the Fyrn pet and the unknown elemental mount, but by shared assets instead of key.

    Based on all that and some more, personally leaning into towards a Dwarven / Elemental combo expansion. Less than a month until we find out.
    About time I get to bust out my Wildhammer/Flight Master dwarf mog again!

    Unironically though, I just want the Alabaster gryphon model but you know, not made out of stupid stone. That model knocks both the classic and Grand Gryphon ones so hard they should be ashamed of themselves.
