    missed this! i sry.

    oki so, yes. imo the margins are kinda weird. howeverrr

    i was just playing around with different screen sizes on the Dragonflight website, and there are sections with equally weird spacing .__.



    so i'm a lil up in the air about that part now. i'll check out other expac sites – i've been away from Azeroth a while (:

    but i definitely stand by what i said about the text! (and potentially any non-essential images)

    It's weird that this is identical, but then the entire body is totally different conceptually. Like the adult is a naturally formed individual instead of a sculpted construct, with a completely different sort of stone and structure. The horns flip around to be curving the opposite way, the mouth goes from being rocks to having an actual tongue and biology.

    Suspect.

We know they wanna keep Dragon/Dynamic riding going forward so the zone size will have to be large enough to accommodate that. I mean honestly I could even see the first and third screen shots being in the same zone where it starts out as a prairie and as you go further in turns into a dust bowl/desert kinda thing.
    I want an Arabian desert. Slap some brokers in there and give me a Middle East inspired zone instead please.

    Yeah, it's not perfect. The more interesting detail about that leak, to me, is that they went out of their way to specify that the stone dwarves have real hair as opposed to hair made out of stone—which we can see is indeed the case based on the screenshot.

    Seems like an odd detail to share.

    But imagine all people from Blizzard reading this thread and traversing through the despair, denial and utter dissapointment in a situation the leak was legit. Damn, that would be a bitter pill to swallow
    To be fair, Blizz is probably used to people insulting legit leaks these days. The community has been dismissing legit leaks as stupid and something Blizz would never do since at least Wrath and probably also TBC.

    I would legitimately love to see that too. You could do so much with it and also be a cool way to bring the Djinn back into the picture but I also think a cool Old West Cowboy vibe zone would be awesome too.

    In our defense, High Elves on the Horde and retconning Eredar to be Draenei and also friendly remains still pretty dumb to this day. Not that I haven't enjoyed Draenei storylines since then.

    iono, smtms u just gotta work fast, u know?

    truth is, depending on their web dev flow, "mobile ready" could come at many different stages of rolling out a new website. and we have virtually no frame of reference for when that picture was taken, so ...

    This is why we need Karesh.

    I don't think it's reasonable to compare changed ideas over the game's lifetime to the situation in question. 11.0 has been in development for like a year at this point, this would be immediately 180'ing on a position, or even saying that they weren't going to change specs while actively working on changing specs in the background.

    Except they did when they discovered that list of datamined achievements, with one of them saying "Algarian Stormrider - Heroic Edition"

    I mean it all depends on if we view the three leaks as one complete three parter and not three leaks that have a nice overlap.
    There are a lot of possible combinations of validity possible besides none of them and all three.

    If this is real, everyone should be disappointed and Blizzard should be ashamed.

    Or they made both leaks and wanted to head off people claiming something like "why would a stone dwarf have real hair? OP was just too lazy to make rock hair!" =P

    Some of the Dragonflight ones that they covered ended up being fake, the name of the expansion was there already on the report, but not all the info turned out to be truee

    Started in closed beta, probably before your class was even in the game.

    I think you can pretty safely associate the website leak with the screenshot leak because of the Ogre/Dwarf in the background. So with those two either they're both real or neither of them are. Even though they may not be from the same person.

    The other text only one tho is so vague with it's descriptions and actively goes against thing's we know for a fact aren't happening like specs being reworked into support that it should be viewed as it's own entirely separate thing that probably just happened to get lucky by using vague descriptions of things.
