    Finally completely caught up after four hours of chasing the thread, and after all of that I only have one genuine question left:

    Is Teriz some WoW terrorist everyone hates or is he more like that one friend in the group that gets his balls busted by everyone else incessantly?

    Tyr/Keepers are definitely the thing bridging the two expansions. Like pissing off Odyn one week and then waking up Tyr the very next??

    This feels like a serious grasping at straws.
    Like I said to Sondrelk, literally at the top of the page. This one wasn't about the reused assets themselves, it was about the other guy saying that if it were using a lot of those assets, it'd be a bad look on an announcement. It isn't. This happened around a time where it already wasn't the norm to see shots like these in the announcement trailer, where WoW was on a decline, which still would have been a bad look, literally no difference between the quality 'norm' between those days and current days. Literally nobody gave a fuck about these two in MoP. So they can do whatever they want, so long as the showcases look good. The assets don't really play a role, seeing as they can even squeeze in unfinished assets in a deliberate shot. People were more butthurt about Pandas than they were about awkward shots in an important first look at the new land. They can get away with it again.

    Regardless of the validity of the "leak," at the very minimum, it has been something of interest to discuss over the last 20 hours that has resulted in almost 100 pages!

    Just someone with the tendency to override threads with their own desires for a future expansion while also lacking the ability to admit to being wrong... ever.

    The pandaria trailer argument is very valid. We have four screenshots and nothing to compare it to. Reused assets should be expected especially this far into developing the world, a world on which this continent also exists.

    To be clear, I’m not supporting or refuting the realness of the leak images - just that reused assets or lack of something you expect doesn’t mean much.

    It isn’t valid because it’s from a video over 10 years old, and if you don’t think anything changes from technology, presentation or marketing in over 10 years then I honestly don’t know what to tell you.

    It’s in fact, a very disingenuous argument.

    Cuz, you know.. Underwater fish people. They don't really gotta worry about flying through a storm, you know?
    Exactly! Now that would be an unexpected development, imagine if they were still deceived by Azshara, and she would visit them in her night elf form, them having no idea she's a naga witch now. Well I could run wild with this.. top marks for totally unexpected.

    Which one is he talking about? The one that's in Portuguese?

    The thing with the leaks that raises the most questions for me is the usage of Titanic architecture. It would be a really odd thing to go to a long hidden continent with people the Titans considered heretics to only see it nearly identically match the way the Titans built their architecture.

    I thought it was real then fake, and now im not sure. Lets find out in a week shall we?

    Maybe Towelie's dream isn't far and we get a Reese's Cup type expansion.

    "Delicious!"

    Even then you would expect the images to show something more specific. I don't think it's incorrect to state that each Vanilla zone has a core landmark of some kind. Marauding in Desolace, the word pakkes in Thousand Needles, the dam in Loch Modan.

    You would have expected images of revamped zones to show off those parts, not random bits.

    But will you get Elf fatigue with some elf questlines happening? Just like in Dragonflight, the expansion isn't about elves, but they do show up occasionally. It is about Dwarves, but if Goblins show up and Vuplera, but then we have a section for elves.. would you feel elf fatigue then? They are the most played race in the game, I don't think it wold be terrible if they had something.

    The laptop web/mobile Khaz Algar leak, which I think he is conflating with the 4 screenshot leak. I think the two have similarities but more inconsistencies which is adding to confusion.

    But regardless of what you’re saying, you’re using a video that’s over 10 years old as evidence that it’s something that would be used again in practice, over 10 years later.

    Compare it to Shadowlands or the BfA feature trailer instead. Comparing it to a feature trailer from 2012 is just incredibly disingenuous.

    Depends on how many times he has mentioned tinkers, or made weird leaps in logic that day.

    Usually it's the second one.

    Literally nothing has changed. They still do the same "showcase zones", then a string of shots with "New Continent/Whatever", "New Feature", "New this, new that", it is simply the most awkward example of it they ever had, because it's the first and only time they just used showcases that were very blatantly unfinished or otherwise not at the quality of the other images/camera slides they used and it literally didn't vex a person at the time, so the precedent wouldn't necessarily be any different now if these 4 images were real and part of the showcasing and they were simply reusing that many assets. Nobody. Gives. A. Fuck. Past. This. Forum.

    Unless the titan influence and architecture was there first?
