    If it makes money, why not?

    Everquest's still going strong. 30th expansion due out this December.

    Some of it is the latter, I'm sure. There's always those weird Chinese leaks that annoy the hell out of me because they're just so weird. Doesnt' help that they're also often like "Oh you're here?" and the like to be even more vague.

    You hope that whole excitement from reveal will be crushed cause it will cause butthurt for few people? It was so boring to watch reveal when you knew everything, both with 9.1 and 10.0. SL also had leaks, but it was very subtle, just Bolvar picture, logo and Bastion art.

    Btw, since Blizzard also "leaked" Dragonflight name even before Scaleface, I think it's possible he had green light from Blizzard for his leaks. Notice that Blizzard was in panic mode and extremely careful with revealing new things, like they wanted "test" reaction in smaller part of community before official reveal. They still are, we knew/know about underground zone for 10.1, Galakrond/bronze theme and emerald dream for 10.2.

    I remember plenty of us were fairly excited with the Bolvar leak, mostly because we hoped he would put up a good fight against Sylvanas

    That's a good possibility. I recall opening some inquiry into the magazine next to the guy who leaked the image. I also recall my folly in assuming the Dracthyr were bullshit. What a nostalgic time already.

    It would of been fine if Bolvar was more involved in the story. Sadly it was not to be.

    They should have kept Jaina and co home and given all those parts to Bolvar, perhaps they could remember that Bolvar and Anduin were fairly close.

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.
    Sounds like good fun that would allow a lot of creative designs! I'm always interested by the pirate fantasy bit it's rarely been done in a way that works on me in warcraft. I find more enticing to follow the story of the fleet of kultiran vessals that were trapped in the storm rather than the pirate shenanigans in freehold. So if we're able to have a new aspect of the pirate life that's a great opportunity!

    I think we can forgive them because they were still trying to figure out how to create an expansion tied to the narrative. They were so lost with the story that there wasn't even an Illidan model until the patch he showed up. You meet him only once in the entire level process, and he's nothing but a talking crystal.

    In hindsight is kinda hilarious, if you ask me - there was zero reason for us to go there, or even raid his temple and kill him. But hey, many years later, I'm in the Dragon Isles and I have no idea why either. I think there's some golem that fell of a tower or something? It's vital that I take pictures of animals and climb mountains though.

    Note on the filename part of the video before people take that the wrong way.

    It's basically just the same thing as has been discussed in here for the last several years, but condensed into a video for the general public. It's a good video speculation wise but it's nothing thread regulars here don't already know about nor contains anything that hasn't already been discussed here at length.

    I'm leaving the world revamp to a tenuous "Maybe" I do want older areas to look better to sort of "compete" with other MMOs and well really represent what we imagine a highly detailed WoW would look like.

    Nice attempt, but I recognize that "B" logo.

    Well, that's what you get if you just skip through the quests. You're there because the Aspects invited you over. And you're coming as part of a research expedition, which explains the pictures and climbing. Most of the rest happened after we arrived on the Isles.

    Meanwhile, in TBC we went to Outland because somebody left the door open and beat up Illidan because A'dal promised us purplez... or something. About half the raids made no lick of sense, least of all Hyjal which didn't even have any kind of explanation. It was just there for some reason.

    Oh yeah, Bellular. Isn't he the same guy that thought the First Ones "ordered" the Shadowlands and whatnot, instead of downright created it?

    I ain't trusting him worth a penny.

    The epithet of An’shuul (“The Cosmic Wanderer”) sounds similar to the Phantom Stranger from DC

    "Great video" and Bellular do not belong in the same sentence, dude just clickbaits to the extreme.

    Do any YouTubers like him do anything other than recap the findings of threads like these?
