Bilgewater Harbour, Hardwrench Hideaway and the Goblin Slums are not appealing places to look at. It would need a massive shake up and a ton of diversity.

    As for the image not working, I’m not sure how to get that to work but the image was the steampunk city Columbia from Bioshock Infinite.

    I hate bilgewater aesthetic - it hurts the eyes. Bring back the Booty bay style of goblin buildings.

    It's all the same. We're not getting real leaks until we're a week from Blizzcon. Everything else is fan fiction.

    Nothing blissful about this indulgence. Y'all are just bickering constantly. Not that there's anything else to do.

    Yeah I much prefer the Steamwheedle aesthetic seen with Ratchet, Everlook, Gadgetztan and to a lesser extent, Booty Bay (more pirate themed) than the awful Bilgewater aesthetic.

    Not true. That last one was interesting. Ultimately proven false by Warcraft Rumble of all things, but it was interesting nonetheless.

    Huh. This would be an insane leak if real - I don't think the entirety of a single Blizzcon's announcements have come close to being leaked before, at least simultaneously. But this is the first one in a while, the rulebook might be out the window as far as how it is being organised.

    But that Hearthstone write up seems... inspired? The simmer keyword doesn't sound like something pulled out of just anyone's arse. Dunno, the Hearthstone section is making me lean towards this maybe being it, despite my brain screaming that this is sus.

    'Sky mastery' is a very blizzard approach to renaming dragonriding, too.

    Not surprising. I guess we’re back to Thrall, Toweliee and Khaz Algar being the biggest hints to 11.0.

    Tbf, the rumble day release is so miniscule, i don't really think we should immediately reject it solely because that tiny bit of inaccurate info.

    Yeah the HS bit is what makes it really believable to me. I'm not saying I haven't seen some theorycrafters come up with similar ideas but none of them ever seem to have that Blizzard touch to them like this would. Simmer and then Chi for a Monk class is so inspired that even if this leak is completely fake I hope some HS dev sees it and uses the idea.

    On a shaman support spec. What I hope for is...

    The same concept as classic totem buffing, except instead of stationary totems you get "spirits" of each element that follow you around and hover. If anyone remembers Oak Sage from Diablo 2, you summoned a spirit that circled you and buffed you and your parties HP or something. That's kinda what I want from a buffing shaman spec. Depending on what elements you use, different spirits get empowered and they interact with each other. Legion enhancement had some of this.

    Would like to see racial cosmetic differences as well. Maybe floating tiki masks for Trolls, floating skulls for orc, animal ghosts for Tauren, Draenei get crystals, and elemental spirits for Dwarf.

    Earthwarden should be kept for a future tank spec name, but something like this they should name 'Spiritcaller'.
