    We all call it the old world so often but for people who don't dwell on forums I guess it is not a common term?

    Ion just said they want to keep the iconic old world vibrant and relevant. We'll probably get more revamps beyond TLT.

    + definitive confirmation that they'll remagine Quel'thalas in the modern game, and expand it. Nice.

    Maybe. Ion seemed eager to shut the lid on it though.

    So it’s not unlikely she was told next to nothing about it beyond “titans did it”.
    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.

    Excited for this. For how they talked about it is probably coming in 10.2.5. I hope that it is a step into a Journal feature. Guessing that it is a tab in which we collect Lore books around the world. Hopefully a bestiary too.

    Sounds fun. Just give me an excuse to explore old content.
    Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

    What did he say so I don't get excited that we get a Lore Tab.

    Got to say, I have to play SoD. It seems so interesting. Imagine if it had updated models . . .
    Just finding it impossible to decide what to play.

    Ok so he didn't really explain much about what it might be. I wonder if it's like the encyclopedia feature FFXIV added in the latest expansion where you can look up names of persons or terms of important stuff like "the black empire" or "the war of the shifting sands" and have a couple of paragraphs of lore about it, in game.

    Personally I never cared about Loading screens, but they seem to be obsessed with the notion of the entire planet being seamless. This might be part of that. If they can get past the technical limitations, it might be possible to fly from The Dragon Isles to The Broken Isles over Quel'thalas by the end of Midnight. And Probably be able to circumnavigate all of Azeroth by 16.0

    That'd be wild. Instead of a "fatigue" bar you get a "sonic boom" buff and you start flying at 4-5 times the speed you normally would with dynamic flying.

    Wonder what talents will look like come Midnight/The Last Titan
    They added Hero Talents as a way from preventing the current trees getting bloated.

    They should just go the D2R with Classic. Enable update graphics with a Toggle option.

    If nothing else its worth noting that Overwatch Content Plan had a Overwatch Lore "thing" on its schedule and well maybe this Azerothian Archives is the equivalent for WoW?

    If it is I'd be extremely happy but if not, oh well.

    I expect they add a random amount of new Hero Talent sets (that name is so confusing. I'd rather they called them Hero Specializations) each expansion. It's either that or they extend the existing Hero Talent trees....but at that point it would be wild to balance three full interchangeable talent trees.

    Not to mention, anyone guessing they're adding another DH spec before 11.0? Considering they're designed to have multiple options, giving Druid 4 but Demon Hunter 2 seems like a cruel joke. There's no reason for there to be a specific number of these.

    I think it would be smart if they combined a bunch of related UI panels into one, with tabs. Similar to the Adventure Guide but more focused on past deeds and lore, rather than content you could be doing next.

    So bring over the three tabs Achievements, Guild, and Statistics.

    But also add something like...

    > Heroic Deeds - your major achievements, like completing the entire storyline of Dragonflight and all its related content
    > Azerothian Archives - a lore book that grows over time as you explore Azeroth, complete content, collect in-game items and books, etc.

    Preferrably, there's also some place in Ironforge or wherever, where NPCs will guide you along this system. Perhaps a seasonal vendor with nice loot, or a massive tome in which they'll log your deeds and grant you some currency perhaps, or cosmetics.

    Extra credits if portions of the Archives are narrated. For example a lengthy chapter about the creation of the Dragon Aspects, and somebody narrates it (optionally).

    Imagine if the Narrator of the Starting Zones could narrate that, would be really cool.

    But hell, time to wait and see what it is before we overhype it beyond belief.

    Which one? The Classic-Cata one sadly passed away a few months ago.

    Well, that sucks.

    Oh well, Azerothian Archives could be a Gameplay system/location too. So best to just wait and see what it actually is.

    How about a few choices.

    For example, Jaina Proudmoore could be one available narrator if you like the voice of Laura Bailey.
