    The only thing of importance to the main story narrative seems to be Iridikron and his disc. The Infinite stuff doesn't seem relevant to the rest of the expansion, though it may feature late (and who takes on the Aspect role will definitely play into the story)

    Pretty much every single dragon-type mount has been reclassified to MountTypeID 424. Not entirely sure what that could mean, but a tinfoil hat theory could be they're becoming dragonrideable.

    Woot! This seems to include the ravens, hawks, and other mounts that use dragon rigs.

    I feel like this has to be reused in the Dream somehow.

    Am I the only one to think that the fact they added all these dragonriding races to the old world pretty much confirms a world revamp is dead at this point? Why would they bother implementing such a cool feature and awesome races for them to become irrelevant next expansion if they revamp the old world?

    Now that the third spec is actually confirmed it's funny looking back on how this forum treated that one dude who was actually speculating off of real honest to good data. Everyone calling him an idiot and stuff for saying Evokers were gonna get a third spec. Maybe now some of those people will learn to actually use their noggins for once.

    Maybe they will port it over if there's a new phase? That, or the geography will be very different in a revamp.

    That's my point, if there is a revamp, I'd imagine the geography to be different and therefore the races couldn't be ported over... so they'd stay in the old version of the old world? That seems like a missed opportunity. I don't like this Team World Revamp... smells bad to me

    There's a brand new version of the WoD harrison model in the raid, so there's the revamp copium.

    Also possibly they don't change the geography at all.

    No, because we've been assuming the physical topography of the old world would not change, (IE: No cataclysm or sundering causing the world to change) only the buildings would be updated & the quests & creatures would be revamped: So that wouldn't affect dragonriding in the old world.

    Could they still revamp the old mountains that look outdated as hell without changing the topography? If that's a thing, then I guess it can work, but I don't see a revamp happening where we keep those disgusting transition mountains in between each zone- the transitions look much better in newer zones, KT, Zandalar and DF being perfect examples. I guess in my mind that meant the topography would change, but I guess it could roughly stay the same, and just be redone with newer technology?

    Also dragon riding through all those ugly old trees is going to be... ahem, something.

    Actually, the VERY fast turnaround (during development of an active expansion) on old world dragon racing makes me think were already fucking around with Kalimdor and EK. What do we think about that?

    Yeah I guess, and we still haven't seen any signs of the Human inn building or the Orc ones, right?

    Look at previous Megadungeons. That's likely the timeline we can expect as well as the type of setup.

    Could be, but then it would mean the turnaround was never truly that: who in their right mind would redesign EK and Kalimdor without thinking "oh yeah, dragon riding is gonna have to be a thing here too"? So if we go down that slope of "they were already tinkering with EK and Kalimdor", then they must have known since day 1 dragon riding would be expanded outside of DF, therefore it's not a turnaround and more them hiding this from us and pretending they're thinking about it and all that jazz.

    ...There wouldn't be stuff like that where the Anduin Lothar and Grom fight is...? That seems unlikely

    I wonder how much effort is actually needed to make it work. It might not be all that hard to do, compared to making them accessible for flying which basically required a full terrain rebuild.

    It would make a lot of sense if it was there indeed, haven't seen any on the screenshots so far, I hope we'll get to see more soon! Although it's strange that such assets would be developed so early on for that patch. I'd rather inhale a bit of copium and think those assets were designed for the World Revamp and then reused for that patch; but as it turns out, we get to see the patch first! *inhales WR copium*

    Yeah it's at that part, but why bother with a new version at all? Just suspicious.

    I agree, really they could have used the Garrison assets...

    I feel NOT giving the Infinite Dragonflight a full patch would be a *bad decision* — please dream lords/Green Dragonflight and Ysera fanbois — that stuff can be its own patch too! Even a .5… sorry not sorry

    My money is on backside of Azeroth / Avaloren, but a WR would be absolutely fantastic!
