    Arcane Forge has appeared in Valdrakken and has a countdown timing for less than an hour from now. Any idea what this thing is??

    The Mimirons Jumpjet secret is the likely answer. Get three pieces and use it on the arcane forge.

    These are some really good looking tier sets. (more in the link above)


    This one is supposed to be a bugged version without the crop top. That means the crop top is a separate part of it? Like the poster says though, I hope they make both available, with some fixes of course, like the creases under the breasts compared to the first "non-bugged" one.
    Hmm, that's easily some of the best mail armor I've seen in a long time. I'd be interested to see what the male version looks like.

    If the Hearthstone Tavern has been in the files since BFA, they have clearly been working on a revamp for a while now.

    If they are planning to do a revamp, even if it is something as low level as a visual upgrade, it is still work that would take years to prepare while also doing everything else.

    They would have been working on it for years though. Remaking all the old NPC models, enviromental doodads, textures and skyboxes. If they alongside this have been making quests and fiddling with old zones then they could have had plenty of time to do this.

    Granted, the tavern was for a scenario that apparently got scrapped and has gone unused since so we know its "intended use".

    Re: those sets I really want to play an Evoker, I just can't stand the look of the Dracthyr form. If the login screen at least allowed me to see my Visage form permanently, then it'd be all right.

    Besides the tavern, is there an older updated asset in the files that still hasn't been used?

    I think there is an HD Night Elf dock/bridge with a round part in the middle, which wasn't used in Darkshore.

    Ah, I see. You're basing your opinion on wowhead searches, not realizing that wowhead doesn't actually accurately tally quests, especially during an expansion like Legion where world quests appear in multiple places, every classes' version of the same "use the artifact forge" or "pick a new weapon" quest are duplicated 12/36 times, or that another 70 are just trigger quests for which artifact you're using or keep track of what "raise weapon animation" to use and the like, several hundred quests are just treasure tracking and scenarios, because when Legion was made they used quests for literally anything.

    You're welcome to go actually look at a list of proper quests and see that I'm correct though.

    I don't think they are intended for housing, but there are so many prop items (especially after Legion) added each expansion that would make for very simple furniture items.

    This one? It is used in only the Horde phase of the Darkshore warfront, for some reason.

    As for older updated assets that still haven't been used, I think there is a version of the Sentinel Hill tower added in BfA that hasn't been used yet.

    There are a lot of things which technically were used, but for trivial reasons.

    For example, the Warfront feature, in hindsight, basically looks like an early attempt to create a quick feature using assets they were already making for the revamp.

    Why did they revamp Darkshore, Silithus, and Arathi Highlands? Why did they super randomly revamp Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin?

    New content has been set in old zones many times, when the zones weren't overhauled.

    I think the WSG example is extra notable. Sure, it might have been them just salvaging the resources for a scrapped Barrens Warfront. Who knows. But why did they make Warfronts the way they did, with updated assets?

    WSG contains truly excellent assets for Ashenvale, the Barrens, etc. So much detail, and it just sits there. I know WSG is an evergreen feature, but most people don't PvP. And if redoing old battlegrounds was so important all of a sudden, why did they only redo two that are on Kalimdor and EK?

    It's almost as if though they initially intended to slowly redo Azeroth, zone by zone according to their old mantra "when it makes sense in the story". But then quickly realised that it'd take forever, so they instead opted to keep the new assets mostly close to their chests, while working at a real revamp in silence for a few years.

    Ah, I see. You're basing your opinion on literal claims and nothing more while casting aspersions based on supposed objective reasoning.

    I'm not trying to derail the thread again. You've come back with a bunch of broken links and some hand waving. You seem to forget the weekly/daily variants of quests, the follower quests from renown, the various cosmetic quests, pickup item/rep item quests, profession quests and a whole host of currency related quests still appear within Dragonflight.

    Please, feel free to provide any form of evidence to refute the actual numbers I have given you. Or, better yet, just stop. You've made a fool of yourself enough as it is.

    I really wouldn't except any big differences between male and female versions anymore.

    I believe it's used in the Alliance uninstanced, and Horde instanced. Just to show that the old dock has been repaired to some extent in the Alliance controlled version.

    Doesnt do anything though, I certainly don't remember any world quests using the area either as Alliance, besides as a backdrop Forsaken flying in over it.

    Interesting. That reminds me they redid the whole Night Elf inn model, but just used it as a prop in the ruins.

    And the tower is very suspicious. Hopefully Ion's comments mean this is all for a revamp and NOT "lol new settlements on Avaloren"

    That still doesnt avoid the fact that 7.0 had the aforementioned 12/36 variants of the exact same quest. "Go to Mission Table and do X mission Y times", "Go to the Artifact Table and inspect [Artifact]". Each order hall had about 6-7 quests that all did the same thing. "Talk to recruiter for [mission table fodder v.1] "Talk to recruiter for [mission table fodder v.2], "Talk to lore person to access lore tablets".

    Legion was packed with quests like these because of the focus on individual classes.

    Apparently Thrall is in the files for 10.2 but I haven't seen him yet. Maybe they really are hiding the Earthen Ring until after Blizzcon?

    If it's a revamp/Cata 2 then it would make sense why they held back on them in DF.

    Looks like I missed a lot...

    Vyranoth might be the 6,the aspect post raid???

    Also all this talk about Elune being the one who truly empowered the aspects makes sense if you go back to the Oracle in zereth mortis.

    If you guys remember the vision where the Oracle spoke in different languages.

    All of them were "cosmic" languages, except draconic.

    But what if draconic is the language of life???

    Then again, how can Elune be Involved, outside of the embrace, if the dragons were clearly empowered via the Titans using the keepers as conduits?
