    I am assuming a 10.3 happens.

    I think it was my scenario so I'll repeat it. What if the arcane prison dimensions that the Blue flight uses originally had a central hub and that hub is Vakthros. Nowadays the blues access them individually but what if there was a central location were those dimensions were tethered?

    Hm I suppose that could work, though feels a bit of a stretch. I'm still leaning toward something decay related, myself.

    Well, if they want to revive the Blizzcon, I'd say expansion reveal is a must. At least, it would make a lot of sense from the marketing perspective. Also, it'd fit into the narrative of a quick and regular content delivery.

    So if the Blizzcon is to happen in late 2023, new expansion and 10.3 reveals taking place there seem pretty logical I guess

    I am so ready for Xal to be revealed as the 5th old god
    Ebyssian to be revealed as a traitor
    Wrathion hearing titan voices and not void which explains why Sabellian didn't hear them.
    Sabellian and wrathion both holding aspect powers
    Alex dying because she's ineffective and very VERY biased against the black flight

    Oh, wait, that's Siamat...
    But your duty to Azeroth is not yet complete. More is demanded of you... a price the living cannot pay.

    Dragonflight was announced in spring because they didn't have a Blizzcon.

    Blizzcon needs big announcements. Sure they could properly announce the new survival game they were hiring for, but I doubt it is far enough already. Or they could announce Overwatch 3 so we could finally get that PvE mode.

    Most likely big announcement is next WoW expansion.

    About the only thing i can get behind is Xal, and that's mostly because it's not so much being hinted as shouted from mountaintops.

    And where is "Sabellian doesn't hear voices" coming from? Seems to me he finds them rather annoying and distracting. Maybe he can't understand them, but he very much appears to hear them.

    What would be the point of that? She's very much the Bolvar of dragonflight. The Aspect of exposition if you will. And even in being that she fails by providing no real context to the story.
    Not that the story of dragonflight really needed her at all, but killing her off wouldn't have an impact very much because of that. If we start killing off every ineffective character we are left with a fraction of what we have.

    Chromatus is the definition of a mary-sue villain and feels like it was written by a five year old.

    Galakrond might not be much more complex, but atleast it's not Chromatus.

    Like, just read that description and tell me that's not shitty fanfiction-tier

    Chromatus' body is enormous, far larger than even a Dragon Aspect's. It looks misshapen with its color of an ugly purple bruise on pale skin. In some places, bones are visible. Scales had fallen off, showing skin that was healthy and skin that was decayed. Each of the heads was a different color and seems to have something amiss with it: a missing ear or an oozing eye. In Thrall's eyes, Chromatus was not just a dragon, but such a dragon as might have been conjured by a Forsaken's worst nightmare.[10]

    Each head of Chromatus has a brain that knows all the skills of its flight, and is able to attack as separate entities or act in eerie unison, with such furor that the entire blue dragonflight had become rattled and panicky.[11] Sometimes his wings would not bear him, yet the blue flight was unable to stand against him and the twilight dragonflight. His green head fixed Ysera with an intense stare, attempting to send the green Dragon Aspect one of her own nightmares. The bronze head can breath out sand. Instead of five separate hues from five separate heads, the flames the creature can spew are dark violet and far more powerful.

    Gygax often did write like a five year old, it's true.

    Tiamat was not invincible and she also wasn't the most powerful user of each magic-type.

    Man I’ve never actually looked into Chormatus but this description makes him seem so dumb.

    Reminds me as the silly Kimeramon from Digimon.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    Chromatus



    is just WoW's version of D&D's Tiamat.


  15. #5075
    Well Tiamat is always a fun fight to have.

  16. #5076
    Pretty much. I don't care for Chromatus as a villain. But I want him as a boss fight

    This year Blizzcon won't have much to announce outside of Warcraft games since both Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 are still fresh, and AFAIK Starcraft doesn't have any new projects in development, so unless they reveal the Survival IP the event will focus mainly on the next WoW expansion, HS expansion, and probably WC Rumble.

    Last live Blizzcon was in 2019, so they may simply focus changes to the format.
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    I could see them at least reveal some stuff about that survival game. Maybe not a full blown reveal but some teases.

    Gonna go off current topic, if that's fine.

    I often hear about Anduin's future love interest.

    IMO, he should not have one, be it a straight relationship or not. At best, a supportive partner, akin to what they did with Mayla and Baine and are doing currently with Emberthal and Ebyssian.
