    Stop hating. People love Gazlowe and Gallywix. Also there’s more Goblin players than Dwarf players.

    By the way, why are people time and time again clinging to the world revamp stuff? Now it’s just a partial revamp? When will you guys finally stop, it’s not happening. Every two years the same revamp shenanigans and people never learn.
    Its definitely happening at some point per Ion.

    The images basically leave out all the good bits about Avaloren: a completely new kind of dwarf (not just "hi, I'm grey now") wielding storm hammers atop his gryphon, a massive and raging storm covering the continent, and an underground cavern where Elun'Ahir's roots delve deep, or Xal'atath and the Void.
    I would be disappointed if Elun'ahir isn't underground Un'goro

    The background in the picture with the harpy looks painted af. How can people not realize this is made with AI?

    Have you seen AI images recently?

    If this is real then I assume the Everward/Jungle Zone is actually underground, it fits way too much what Elun'ahir was described to be (upside down world tree)

    It's definitely not painted...

    I mean, technically everything in WoW is painted. But I don't think that's what you meant.

No major character?

    Here's the thing. If it's not an old "major character", people are going to be sighing, like as if new characters can't be major players. What if the main bad, presumably given current circumstances would be Iridikron. He'd be a major player all things considered, but the counterpoints IMMEDIATELY would be something along the lines of "blah blah writing", "blah blah not very established, so not major".

    Yet he literally is. What if it IS Thrall. What if it's Magni, or Brann or any of the brothers. There's so little to go on. It's insane how much copium people huff to warrant shitting on the presumably new thing because they still haven't gotten Barrens 3.0 so they can then go on and complain ad homimen about how Barrens 3.0 looks exactly like what they said they wanted it to be. An update of the Barrens. It'd be "Oh no, Botani in the Barrens, literally just copying Gorgrond now for the revamp KEKW".

    It could be, but I'm not sure why Blizzard would tease a world tree there of all places. Keep in mind Freya planted multiple world trees within the dream. It's not impossible for one of them to have been in the Dream-version of Un'goro, sort of seeping its life-giving energies out into the physical realm. Another might have been in Scholazar, doing the same.

    I've wanted your expansion concept to be real ever since I first came across it in the "Twofold Light" era.

    Yeah, that what I was thinking. While it would have been dope to use Un'goro as a newly rootlike area like in Elden Ring for Elun'ahir in Un'goro as part of a world revamp, having it in another place would still work. What I don't really like is that they're overusing the world tree concept a bit too much already.

    This does not look 3D to me.

    Yeah, I agree. I love the lore around the world trees, but it really was perfect already when it was just Nordrassil standing tall on Mount Hyjal.

    I loved Teldrassil, but lorewise it always felt a bit "+1" compared to Nordrassil imo. Then going through multiple expansions with similar trees, like Shaladrassil, the Heart of the Forest or whatever it's called in Ardenweald, and now this... it'll be nice with a shift away from that.

    Hear me out, it might be the pixelation (highly likely to be), but the titan pillars with the orbs here look a whole lot more like they are filling the "lamp post" role more than anything. The Golems running around also are the same sort of Golem model we've had, they use for the ones in old Un'goro Crater (obviously those are/were a bit dated in looks). But you know what looks weird to me? The shit that's kind of looks like small, very thin rays of Sunshine poking through across the image. It doesn't actually look a whole lot like godrays and more like rays of light coming from a different light source. What if this actuall is an Underground Un'goro, like an underground Hollow Earth (I know we've had this topic before) jungle and those rays are coming from bigger titan orbs or light sources hung up around Elun'ahir or somehow coming off of Elun'ahir, like the top of the tree is actually the biggest light source of the cavern?
