    Isn’t the “Chinese leaker” that people talk about not an actual leaker but just someone who pointed out a pattern in expansions?

    Correct. But he's currently 3 for 3 with having correctly guessed the themes of 8.0, 9.0, and 10.0.

    He believes that 11.0 will be focused on elementals, 12.0 will "somehow" connect to the faction war of MoP, and 13.0 will deal with Void Lords.

    Yes and he wasn't even that accurate about 8.0, calling it the Old God expansion without mention of the faction war, but calling 12.0 the faction war expansion. I mean, he prefaces it all by saying it's just a prediction, but people treat it as a leak.

    Maybe the city is built into either side of a chasm with the streets being open like looking into a doll house on either side and you can use elevators at the backs of alleys to go up and down between the levels, or use dynamic flight to get up and down and across.

    Could be something like Zion from The Matrix. dwellings etc built into the side with bridges cutting across the chasm.

    That's what I'm picturing if they actually built a city in the fissure they went to explore.

    Can someone remind me what caused Cataclysm to leak in its entirety? How did Boub get the info, I mean.

    I know they had datamined Goblin and Worgen hallow's end masks which kinda of leaked the new races.

    Yeah but Boub posted the whole Cata leak on MMOC that was WAY more than just Blizz accidentally adding those masks and then trying to backtrack and pretend they weren't the new races. This was the actual expac, name and all.

    Google tells me the alpha client leaked and was datamined.

    Not sure what thrall has to do with underground so i gotta ask.

    It took us this long to reign him in at least now he's attributing everything to an elemental theme. Gryphon Riders? That's wind. Thrall? That's a shaman. Underground? That's where rocks live.

    He was the Earthwarder and still almost exclusively uses earth-based abilities, with a tiny bit of lightning for good measure so we remember he's a shaman.

    IIRC, Blizzard also panicked and added a bunch of other race masks like Ogres and Murlocs to try and cover their tracks, but the cat was out of the bag by then.

    I don't think Ethererals or Brokers will be involved.

    I think potentially we have The Robot (Blingtron) War, Nerubians, (possibly) Rakalaz, Gallywix, Elementals, Kobolds, and whatever Iridikron and Xa'latath have planned.

    I think we'll have our hands full.

    We're not sure about Gryphon Riders being a part of 11.0 just yet. Again, all we got is Thrall on the key art, Khaz Algar via the Algarian Stormrider, and Toweliee dropping hints about caves and scarabs.

    If the void is involved the Ethereals will be, at the very least the ones allied with the Void elves.

    Come on, where are the "real" leaks we used to get around this time?

    i remember those images for dragonflight leaked, showing the stone dude, the dragons and the logo, i need something like that to fire up my hype.

    Man i remember people doing some hacker lv shenanigans to prove how they were fake, those good times

    We've only really JUST hit the expected time period for real leaks. Realistically probably still another week if we're lucky.

    To be fair, didn't THOSE leaks happen the morning of the actual announcement?
    We are still 2 weeks away from that timeframe.

    i think it took some days, a week perhaps? i remember it was some photos from a graphic or something, before we already had the expansion leak, without the images

    Nothing. Just mental gymnastics. A month ago he was insisting, post after post, that the exact same Thrall art piece was evidence for a Yrel/Lightbound invasion, because something something Thrall is important to AU Maghar and AU Maghar = Yrel.
