    The only things in WoW these remind me of would be some kinda demon, like the Dreadlords, or those gargoyle creatures from Revendreth.

    Nothing in Dragonflight springs to mind.

    They have been hyping the damn tree/dream for every patch since the end of SL so I can see them making this a big event.
    Fair point, forgot about those cinematics.

    Funny you mention the stoneborn from Revendreth. They are the closest thing we've seen ingame that look like this creature. The gaunt, monstrous face; the "horns"; the ear; the nose is similar.
    The only issue is the teeth. Stoneborn have long upper-canines/fangs like a vampire, whereas this one has long lower-canines/tusks like an orc or some demons.

    It looks mostly like a fucked up Orc or Drogbar which I can see having some tie to a new continent connected to Kalimdor. And we know Thrall will be a main character...

    Haha I'm so stoked, this is like wrath of the Bolvar all over again.

    If this is legit, the background figure must be iridikron

Not just that, but it's also only a Hand because the Dead God Tir from Dungeons & Dragons' symbol was a hand. Like Selune/Elune, they just cribbed that.

    I guess I can get past that by rationalizing that Alonsus Foal originally chose that symbol, and he's Forsaken now.
    The silver hand is both a reference to his hammer and a literal silver hand he used to replace his missing hand. Both DnD and WoW are referencing the Norse god, this isn't wow ripping off DnD.

    It clearly seems like some sort of Orc. The armor seems like an Orc armor. May he be a Life Orc? Could the Heretics of Avaloren be evolved Orcs that Aggramar brought from Draenor thousands of years ago?

    Ion stated in a recent interview that Orcs would have new lore coming soon, so...

    I think that Orc looks Undead. Sunken in eye sockets, glowing red eyes, the amount of deep wrinkling and visible bone structure on the cheek, missing nose etc. Instead of a large ear on it's right, screen left maybe those are wounds.



    If it's an undead Orc maybe it's another timey-wimey thing either Dargonflight patch or 11.0 dealing with an alternate timeline where the Orcs got the Scourge treatment instead of the humans.

    What bothers me is the upper right corner. It looks like the picture is supposed to be rotated a bit when you would actually watch it on your screen. But then it would be crooked or am i wrong?

    So, i did the nelven heritage quests.

    Personally, i think the questline on its own is actually quite good.
    I had my fun, it was nice playing alongside Maiev (despite that absolutely horrendous escort quest), the other 2 nelves were interesting enough.
    And running around Shadowhold slaying demons was pretty cool.

    However, it was so lacking in any culturally relevant content that i just do not get how they designed the questline and said "yeah, this is the heritage questline"
    Whole questline spent in Felwood, no other character pops up other than Maiev, larger nelven culture and history entirely irrelevant to the context of the questline.

    Not a single mention of the current status of nelven society beyond "we big sad".

    The only piece of culture in that questline was the marking ceremony at the end.
    And while i enjoyed that part, it unceremoniously ends by getting ported to sw to receive your set.

    I feel like this should've been additional quest content ala Baine or the Eredar quests next week, not the actual meat of the heritage quests.

    They're both the same type of creature. They have this red scarf thingie around their necks, and similar shoulder pads.

    It honestly doesn't feel like it fits anything.

    Closest thing I can think of is if Blizzard does something very unexpected. Like, really unexpected. The Void attacks Azeroth, and all of a sudden, a surprise to everyone, some kind of army rushes out from the Shadowlands, or Draenor or whatever, unexpectedly and inadvertedtly saving Azeroth when they meant to invade it.

    Or, Life goes bananas after the events of the Emerald Dream, causing both a revamp and some kind of uprising by creatures like the Botani and others.

    What if, they're some void creatures and they're staring down a naaru, about to stomp it out.

    Cuz it looks like they're staring at a light source.

    To me it looks like the camera is panning over the scene, briefly showcasing these brutes busy with something, and it's the sunset.

    I do think they will give us some detail about what comes after 10.2 other than the expansion reveal, at blizzcon. They're not ever going to make a fully rendered cinematic for a patch, that's an expansion-only thing.

    That being said, the Nelf Heritage armor has an in-game cutscene that looks like one of the pre-rendered machinema cutscenes. It was really good. 11.0 is going to be really impressive.

    • Calia is not a commoner, she was the Princess of Lordaeron. Bolvar is from a Noble Stormwind family. We know from Jaina's backstory that the Human Kingdom leaders would have parties every year where they all intermingled. What she looks like now doesn't matter if she introduces herself as "Calia Menethil" which she does.
    • That's not how Bolvar described his wife's death.
    • Bolvar calls her his wife, telling us they were married. Calia specifically states they were not married.
    • Calia is told her husband & child died in a scourge attack but at no point were Bolvar & Taelia declared missing in action or dead, whereas Calia used this to fake her death. Meanwile Bolvar is so famous he became the High Regent of the Alliance in Varian's absence. So who told her they were dead? If someone did it would be promptly debunked by a second opinion.

    If I was team Light-invasion, I'd say that's a Lightbound Draenei-Orc hybrid. Perhaps the son of Yrel and Garrosh?

    If that is an Orc, is either a Lightforged one or a Life one. I am more inclined to choose the second option.

    Honestly is about time that they develop Life.
    Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

    honestly the picture doesn't look warcraft to me, but we're not seeing much of the characters
