    Has any of the leakers ever been a regular poster? I assume that even if they are, they might post on an alt account.

    I think that could be a solid show.
    Gameplay for the survival game too + I'd say a Starcraft IP game.

It could have been quite more striking (and offered a much better dungeon to accompany 8.3 than the void vomit we got which could have just been part of questing).

    I suggested earlier that we could have the last raid be on the outskirts of Avaloren. We get there to stop Iridikron from getting inside and the raid is in a Titan facility the natives repurposed which generates a shield that keeps the rest of the island safe. We stop what we have to stop but the shield is damaged and then in the prepatch we assemble there as we wait for the shield to fail (which it does at expansion release )
    Then Avaloren could have a mix of Pirates (we protect the Isles from the Nightsquall's invasion), Void and Titan.

    Wrath's theme wasn't really the Lich King. It was Northrend.
    Northrend is the SETTING! Almost everything in Northrend was connected to the Lich King though, including the Vrykul.

    So TBC was about the Burning Crusade even though most of the expansion has nothing to do with it?

    And troll? I am just having an opinion. Just sad of you to go there. Do better.
    The focus of the expansion was about fighting the Scourge and the Lich King. Northrend is the prime setting, yes. But it's not the theme in of itself.

    The Shadowlands' setting is...well...the Shadowlands, but the main narrative is focused around the Pantheon of Death, the function of Death, and how Zovaals influence affected not just it, but the greater Cosmology as a whole.

    Settings =/= Themes.

    I mean it makes sense. It sucks to have your ideal next expac theme be debunked for one. Second, there is so many fake leaks here that it is really a needle in a haystack and its easy to just dismiss it. Even after the leaked screenshot of the cinematic it was still questionable, because of its best quality.
    It's fun that we had a leak that was actually true, but I will still not ever take a leaker seriously until they build a rep. Which is hard, because I think said person might make an alt account since his name is kind of related to the expansion he leaked.

    Except his cloak literally whispers to you and tells you you are special. The Silent Star is definitely an entity of its own.

    Setting = location and visuals
    Theme = subject

    If we're talking about visuals i'd say you want to be discussing the setting and not the themes. Sometimes they are strongly linked (setting: frozen continent, northrend -- Theme: Scourge, undead, Lich king) and sometimes they are not linked at all (Setting: Pandaria/uldum, -- Theme: Old gods).

    Oh, then it's probably a Void star or some shit. J doubt there is just 1, and if there is, then it's unique in its own right.

    Among other things he predicted (successfully) he also left us the trail of crumbs for MMO-C to uncover the name of the Evoker class without him directly spoiling it. It was pretty fun, those 2-3 days. I remember some meme images specifically one with Drek’Thar in the background? I forget the context of it.

    I have three theories on An'shuul:

    1. An'shuul is an asteroid, meteoroid, or comet caught in the orbit of An'she, which it employs to eradicate the influence of the Void. My reason for thinking this is because "Shuul" translates to "death" in Shath'yar. Either its translation is a truncation of the translation of "death (from) An'she" or "An'(she's) death(-bringer)".
    2. It has nothing to do with An'she: An' as a prefix in Shath'yar seems to be analogous to "the" (though it is not the only word serving in the capacity), so it may simply mean "the death, the Cosmic Wanderer". Since it is also a "cosmic wanderer", it may be some kind of astrological object of some importance to any number of cultures. It may, for instance, be the shadow of death cast from the Void that wanders from planet-to-planet.
    3. This one is solely a matter of headcanon and has no basis in canon. An'shuul is the reflection of An'she in the Void; more precisely, it is everything that An'she is not, could have been, or any other opportunity cost from the existence of An'she.

    So Anshe is a naaru?

    Not strictly. My assumption is just that An'she is roughly Light-associated. As for the bit I specified as falling under the purview of headcanon—An'she having a reflection at all—I usually assume that every entity has a reflection in the Void, regardless of their associations. I envision every inhabitant of the Void as an embodied opportunity cost of everything the entity that exists in its place could have been and what could have arisen instead of it or in its absence.

    There's definitely going to be more than one.

    I think its just the narrative shifting and giving us a non-Old God void influence. I'll even go as far as to predict there will be some retcon that Deathwing was possibly directly corrupted by the void and not N'zoth. It matches the cloak whispers saying those unworthy can't hear them. Which is something repeated in the Legacy short story as well.

    I imagine he's in the Pantheon of Life, but represents the solar aspects of it, I.R crops growing, farmlands, valleys, etc.

    I really wonder with some "leaks", is it that they are not trying at all or are they not fluent in english and translating something through google?
