    that is 100% a new version of the typical log in screen you are right... could they maybe play it during the going live soon for Blizzcon?

    Edit: at 0:56 it says khan modan 100% dwarf xpack confirmed

    Uh I never said the BlizzCon mount was the Algarian Stormrider. I said the BlizzCon mount could be a hint that 11.0 is an elemental expansion.

    As for the Algarian Stormrider, I said it is likely an air elemental due to a similar mob in the Storm Peaks. Whether or not that turns out to be true has yet to be seen.

    OT: The NE on top of the BlizzCon mount wearing dragon riding gear is interesting. Perhaps they plan on expanding dynamic flying to Elemental mounts?

    There's no way people are this clueless. The "datamining" literally says "Heroic" in front of "Algarian Stormrider." The Algarian Stormrider is clearly part of the 11.0 pre-order.

    Certain individuals were trying to say it wouldn't be a Dwarf-centric expansion but instead an elemental-centric expansion after the image of the mount from Blizzcon went out. Now that that is ruled out, the gryphon textures are the safest bet for the Stormrider mount.

    Why would it be? We know from the Achievement title it's for the Collector's Edition of the expansion, as the Achievement name is literally "Heroic Edition: Algarian Stormrider".

    This thread is filled with people who have regularly been unable to properly understand explicit text in a 3-paragraph story found in an in-game book, this shouldn't be surprising.

    The only time a Blizzcon reward ended up being a teaser was the Gunship/Zeppelin mounts in 2017, the same Blizzcon BfA was revealed. Even then, I think that more just happened to work out, as the year prior they had done Horde/Alliance Murlocs, and the year after was the infamous Faction capes, so they were already on a Horde/Alliance streak.

    Every other time it's been a reference to an expansion/patch already announced, or the "Blizzard" theme.
    hi. i was mostly joking. The only link the blizzcon bundle could have with the new expansion is the elemental mount, but just because we're speculating 11.0 is going to be an elemental themed expansion.

    I couldn't find any text on the bundle page saying if the bundle goes away at some date, the last bundle for blizzconline had a date and eventually went on sale before it went away hoping this one does too to get it for a little bit cheaper even if I have to wait a while.

    The elemental model for a mount is always a pass for me. Just covers too much of the screen.

    Yeah, I havent decided if im getting yet. Gonna wait to see what they announce for all the games this year first.

    Also, does anyone know if you can stack battlepass unlocks? I have a diablo 4 BP unused, and if I buy this will I have 2, or will it overwrite one?

    Well no big surprise the Frost elemental is NOT the Algarian Stormrider.

    But its specifically the login music screen. Good catch on the Khaz modan, didn't even notice that.

    Khaz Modan could mean nothing, or it could be a little cheeky include if we do go to Khaz Algar. No way to know, but very cheeky blizz.

    I legitimately have no idea where people got the notion that the BlizzCon mount was the same as the Algarian Stormrider. It's quite bizarre.

    Not really. You should consider that support specs are going to be limited to a very small number of classes. Probably 3-4. If we include Evokers, that leaves 3 classes, and Bloodlust/Heroism is a very powerful support effect.

    That said, you could be correct that they wouldn't use that criteria. However, I still believe you're only looking at 3 additional classes getting support. There's also the possibility of Blizzard dropping a new class in 11.0 with a support spec, and then them releasing an additional support spec for another class mid-expansion. This may occur because I don't believe they're going to allow Augmentation to be the only support spec in the game beyond Dragonflight.
