    I would generally be inclined to agree, but then again, we had plenty of curveballs thrown our way long before now: consider WoD or MoP. Neither of those were precisely expected locales in the progression of expansions.

    MoP was a sudden turn and change of pace. I initially had doubts, but the amount of world-building erased those doubts. MoP was an expansion in every sense...and there in lies why I was so damn disappointed in WoD.

    No chromatus....so far not mentioned at least.
    Which is a damn shame because he's so powerful he went toe to toe with multiple aspects

    Dang, this video just dropped a few bombs about upcoming lore...

    https://youtu.be/Qo12dBwqNYQ

    - Nozdormu and Muruzond story coming up, along with "evil Chromie" (Morchie, lol). Resolution of the story promised.
    - Galakrond.
    - Iridikron is up to something really naughty.
    - Timeywimey badness guaranteed.
    - Encrypted stuff going to talk about another dragonflight group in 10.1.

    Based on how much time they spent on the Bronze here, it seems like it'll be in the megadungeon. Which is sweet as heck.

    So I wonder what the megadungeon will look like.

    It seems pretty obvious that the entrance is the one in the Temporal Conflux.

    My guess is that we'll hop through time a bunch, a bit like when we chased after Chromie and that infinite dude?

    One boss encounter could be ancient Galakrond, or alternatively he could be a penultimate boss before Muruzond, sort of like a risen Galakrond (or being resurrected).

    The return of the Old Gods is all but confirmed and I obviously called it long ago.

    Their minions Galakrond and Murozond will be dealt with, and so the Old Gods will return.

    Since Galakrond and Murozond are mere puppets of the Old Ones, the return of their Eldritch Gods is inevitable.

    We cannot say that they are not trying to get us back on board. WoWCAST video is pretty cool and they have the balls to tease us a lot about what is coming next (minute 41:00).

    Cannot wait to see 10.1.5 because Galakrond and Murozond and evil Chromie are coming. Plus another Dragonflight that I am guessing that is the Infinite but who knows.

    I dunno if all of that will be in the megadungeon, maybe Fyrakk or whatever that incarnates name is that is a bit mindless(But thats his role and I am ok with it).

    Along with every sentient creature in the Milky Way Galaxy, and one small pebble somewhere on a beach in South Africa.

    I do not see Fyrakk being defeated in a megadungeon or in a quest. I think that the Incarnates will survive DF, not all of them, but at least one. Having Galakrond defeated in a megadungeon would be pretty weird too, so I wonder what the hell will they do with him.

    This is wrong, I was one of the very few people in this thread who knew the Old Gods would be involved in 10.0 even before Dragonflight was announced, while most of these guys were sure that the Old Gods would not be revisited until at least 11.0.

    Come on, Varodoc. Dragons and Old Gods are linked. One cannot live without the other in WoW lore. In fact, I think that Old Gods have been present in one way or another in every WoW expansion, except in WoD, maybe?

    Wow, this sounds a little bit like an ego-boost to be honest
    And, well - as exciting as the lore drop is - how does Murozond/ Iridikron / Galakrond confirm the Old Gods presence?
    As far as I know, Murozond is related to time stuff, not necessarily the Old Gods. Iridikron - we have no idea what he's up to yet. I guess Tyr suggests that Galakrond grew to it's size due to drinking the water corrupted by Yogg-Saron, but it's still: A) not a canonical thing atm; B) even if it is, it doesn't mean they will explore that part of his story.

    Also, the Old Gods are ever-present in I guess every expansion to some degree, so to say that simply because they appear by name in a story, it must guarantee their major relevance to the story, seems like a stretch to me

    That's how it usually goes in these threads, one day I'll not find it annoying, probably.

    I am the only one dreaming about Galakrond's visage? How absolutely and insanely cool would that be?

    I think CoT-like megadungeon is the most likely outcome. Especially with the technology they have now, basically running through a whole myriad of timelines but in a single dungeon would be a lot fun.

    Well Bronze Dragonflight does mean time travel. So defeating an older version of Galakrond from before his fall wouldnt be that weird.

    Wrong, Murozond was created by the Old Gods when they revealed to Nozdormu his own doom and manipulated him. Murozond and his Infinite Dragonflight are just puppets of the Old Gods and that is why they were trying to usher in the End Times in Cataclysm, a timeline in which the Old Gods are triumphant and wipe out all life on the planet with their Hour of Twilight.
    Iridikron - we have no idea what he's up to yet
    It's obvious that the Old Gods are keeping track of his movements as N'Zoth literally predicts 10.1 in the Chromie questline, furthermore Iridrikon is the Incarnate of Earth (just like Neltharion was the Aspect of Earth, wink wink) and the Old Gods have deep connections with the Earth.
    I guess Tyr suggests that Galakrond grew to it's size due to drinking the water corrupted by Yogg-Saron, but it's still: A) not a canonical thing
    He doesn't "suggest" it, he outright states it when he says that Galakrond's corruption was caused by "drinking unfiltered water". And since Yogg-Saron's body sprawls all across Northrend (this is evidenced by pieces of Saronite, his crystallized blood, showing up all around Northrend), it's obvious that the Titan Keepers discovered the truth.

    even if it is, it doesn't mean they will explore that part of his story.
    There is nothing else in Galakrond's "story" to explore.

    Galakrond is nothing more than a brainless animal.

    The only contribution he can give the Story is to bring the Old Gods back into the spotlight with his actions.

    Kind of surprised that Bronze seems to be the Megadungeon but it should be really fun and it does mean the ending of the expansion will be a little more interesting than LOL MUROZOND/GALAKROND.

    I assume Galakrond will pop up in the Bronze dungeon, but I guess Iridikron could rezz him somehow.

    Tazavesh was kinda like that. Though I think they could have leaned way more into time travel, and way less into the Broker stuff.
    All kinds of fun stuff could be a boss in a time travel dungeon. We could fight villains from the Murloc timeline, or Aqir in the Black Empire. We could have ancient proto-elves using druidic powers, or even just fight a boss from a previous expansion.
    Worst case would probably be 4-5 Infinite dragonflight bosses, then maybe one or two time travel bosses for flavor.

    Based on speculation from twitter I think this is going to be the Netherflight, as apparently there is a Blue Dragon connected to them that hasn't been seen in a while and the Blue story is encrypted. It could easily be the Storm Drakes as well and connected to the encrypted Tyr questline.
