    The race is "Pandaren," "Pandarian" is the descriptor. This fits established conventions.

    Also, every expansion has new NPC races that aren't listed as selling points. Like the Djardin in DF.

    Sort of like Maldraxxus being a place, and Maldraxxian being a term for something related to Maldraxxus

    So, Algaren for the race Algarian for things related to 'em?
    If the race was called Algaren, I think I'd use Algareni or Algarenian for things related to them.

    But I suppose Algarian still works for things related to the broader zone of (Khaz) Algar, so it's not really an issue. However, I take issue with some of the other details in the "leak", mainly the lack of any mention of the Agg'ora.

    4 zones. Art looked like jungle, desert, snowy peaks and rocky peaks.
    Khaz algar capital city partially underground. Like IF if half of it was above ground.
    No new specs. Some specs turned into support specs.
    lightbound titan keepers
    storm dreadlords
    fancy dragon/moth hybrid things
    Saw what looked to be a boat piloted by a player character.
    Image of Silvermoon with a harbor and a lot of nightborne asthetics around as well.
    gilneas repaired with night elf asthetics around and a harbor where the worgen starting zone is.

    Here is one. Similar city description. Bard rogues, too. https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...torming-Shores

    And thank you @Rathwell, I think that is the actual one I've seen before. And that has the dragon moths, too! Interesting! It's funny that one says no new specs, but this new one says new specs.

    Probably because the biggest and most legitimate leak is a steaming pile of crap actively killing Blizzcon hype for retail.

    Its similar because they are all copying each other because for some reason it makes them think it sounds more real.

    An expansion with only four zones using a ton of rehashed assets and a rehashed setting will be essentially the death knell of this game.

    In fact, it's almost like the devs would be trying to Kamikaze the game on purpose.

    I just find it weird that these images leak and a few days later you show up spoiling the entire thing. Yeah, I have my doubts.

    I guess the relationship would be,

    (Khaz) Algar (place) -> Algarian (related to the place?) -> Algaren (demographic)

    Pandaria (Place) -> Pandarian (related to the place) -> Pandaren (demographic) ?

    Pretty much...

    Dragonflight is as cookie cutter as it gets. In fact they've been pretty much following the same pattern since Legion and DF even has the arguably smallest "expansion feature" on top of that the content patches are extremely basic.

    If we are being rational here there is no reason to expect anything else for 11.0.

    • Continent: Avaloren: Four zones – Khaz Algar, Agg’orand, The Everward, and Greyveil Glade (Stormy
    snow-covered mountain region, rocky desert plains, a lush living jungle covering titan ruins with
    unique moth-looking green dragons, and misty forest think of a more open space Grizzly Hills)
    • The Algaren capital city is in Khaz Algar, think half above ground, half underground, more rocky and
    less precisely carved looking Ironforge.
    • Eight dungeons at launch (Four of which are 11.0 Season 1 Mythic+ dungeons).
    • One raid at launch.
    • One new battleground at launch.
    • Dynamic flying carried through into Avaloren.
    • No static flying at launch.
    • New dynamic flying glyphs, one I’ve seen previewed is a really fast lightning boost.
    • Level cap raised to 80.
    • New support specialisation for Shaman at launch, and support specialisations in the works for
    Demon Hunters and Rogues (assuming Bard).
    • Assuming in 10.2.7 or the pre-patch, Dracthyr will be able to play as: Warrior, Hunter, Rogue, Priest,
    Shaman, Mage, Warlock, Monk, Druid, and of course Evoker.
    • Assuming in 10.2.7 or the pre-patch, every race will be able to play as Shaman and Druids.
    • New race: The Algaren, are large (Orc sized) stone dwarves that come in various rocky colours and
    styles.
    • The Algaren starting area is a small island off the coast of Khaz Algar, here they come across the
    Tyr’s guard, Horde, and Alliance for the first time. After the Alliance and Horde help the Algaren fight
    against the hostile forces of Odyn some Algaren have decided to pledge allegiance to either the
    Alliance/Horde much like the Dracthyr and Pandaren did.
    • No new profession, but the Archaeology revamp might as well be.
    • Pre-launch event includes helping the reformed Tyr’s guard fight the forces of Odyn (Travard has
    received a unique model and plays our Khadgar, Magni, Bolvar role).
    • We venture to Avaloren alongside the Tyr’s guard and Tyr himself in pursuit of Odyn.
    • Odyn is in pursuit of Iridikron who is in pursuit of a “powerful titan artifact”. Odyn enraged by the 5
    Dragonflight’s betrayal and the Horde/Alliance/Tyr’s guard’s choice to align with the Dragonflights
    has turned him hostile towards us.
    • The first portion of SoA will focus more on Odyn than Iridikron and the void.
    • Xal’atath is back (and has also received a unique model).
    • Silvermoon, Gilneas, and post-launch Lordaeron revamps with more to come.

    These are the major things I can recall, feel free to ask any more specific questions, and if I can answer them I will.
    Support specs and Avaloren

    Literal nightmare scenario

    So uninspired I'm almost certain this is true

    No offense but touch grass.

    No one outside of MMOC really cares about leak season in WoW. Its like a % of a % of a % of WoW's playerbase. No one cares.

    I'm pretty excited. These "leaks" are getting me more and more pumped for BlizzCon. Might even be better than DF (one of my favorite expansions ever).

    And it's fake because it used AI to generate the image of the storm dwarf.

    Yeah honestly I do feel like some of y'all are really kinda going overboard with your doom and gloom about things.

    I mean I get being disappointed and worrying but just...its like this expansion idea ran over your collective dog or something.
