    If the name of the next expansion is indeed "Tempest" and we combine that information with StormRider+Tempest+Map shifted to the right+airlock system we can make an educated guess that the next expansion will explore unknown lands to the west through the storms.

    Blizzard just reserved a domain called "tempest".

    Next expack could be WoW:Tempest, or it could be something else. But Dragonflight leaked this way also.
    Thanks _o/

    Not only is this old, it's part of the ".corp.blizzard" domains so it's just an internal resource portal/job tool for the company employees. Could be their benefits portal or a payroll tool, etc.

    I wouldn't take the name seriously.. Companies try to hide whatever project they're working on under some pseudonym so that way they don't leak out anything. The name doesn't always correlate to the actual theme of the expansion.

    Yes, I know. I just put out the idea because I thought that the name 'Tempest' fitted the overall information that we have so far.

    quoting this for the new page so we can nip it in the bud

    I guess you could say this was a tempest in a teapot.

    No, that's some internal adress that isn't relevant to us.

    I mean warcraft3 tho...

    Edit: I guess www.playwarcraft3.com has been a thing since 2018 and links to reforge boo - so this is just probably cleaning up the reforge link.

    And it dating to 2020 + having corp in the url 100% sounds internal

    Razageth Was the storm eater, don’t think she ever had tempest mentioned related to her.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    World of Warcraft: Tempest isn't as cool as Voidstorm OR Stormbreak. Bet Danuser was behind this.

  14. #26434
    We're almost sure the next expansion is related (at least partially) to the elements. Not my favorite theme but at this point i don't care anymore. just give me a fun and cool expansion both gameplay and story wise and get me out of dragonflight.

    I think name "tempest" is something that blizzard could do- it's easy to pronounce/say and remember, it is short which makes it very good for interviews and marketing.

    Im not a big fan of it, but ye.

    Damn if the Tempest thing is true its another One-Word expansion :| Give me a couple of words Blizz!

    It's not, though that doesn't mean it won't be one-word.

  19. #26439
    I wonder whether Blizz can use the Airlock-technology thing to make a zone ABOVE other zones, like an archipelago of isles in the sky within a storm. I think that could be cool for a max-level zone etc.

    Surely this should stop the rapid speculation surrounding Tempest.
