    Blizzard already said there will be no pirates and that there is nothing on the other side of Azeroth. But I support Thrall becoming the focus again. I am sick and tired of being forced to take from Tyrande and Khadgar who murdered many loyal members of the Horde.

    Tanaris Wastelander should be included in that hype train image.

    Why though?

    The wastelander set is not any more conspicous than the corsair, fire plum or darkmoon set.

    That's true. Maybe have Metzen decked out in the gear if its possible to get a good angle on it.
    The world revamp dream will never die!

    Oh but it is my friend, Tanaris as never been described as that kind of wasteland - with a Mad Max/Borderlands vibe. This... could point to a revamp!

    Why not just add all 4?

    Absolutely not. Tanaris is a desert, but it's never been depicted with the whole Mad Max / Borderland vibe this set seems to be drawing inspiration from. Please if you quote me, quote the whole thing!

    Good one. While i do hope thrall is a focal point i hope its more so an Exploration thrall leading us then a Elements are calling us thrall
    Also when did they say there was nothing on the other side of azeroth?

    Can't quote an edit.

    The primary human faction of Tanaris are called wastewanderers, and the set's aesthetic is just the normal wastewander aesthetic + goblins.

    I mean they would just have to upscale. There are the wastewanderer bandits. And from the 4.1 trailer: "Zul'farrak, once the shining jewel of Tanaris; now nothing more than a wasteland".

    So yes it has been used in the same breath. I think giving Tanaris a bit of a more rough, unforgiving climate would be cool. They could have frequent heavy sandstorms, which could or could not play into a feature.

    I fixed my grammar, not the content of the message and yes, I know about the wastewanderers, but I've never seen them wearing anything else than typical desert attire, even less so goblin-inspired mechanical armor gear like this:



    So yes, when I say this is not typical for Tanaris, I stand by it. Even Gadgetzan is not tech-heavy at all in WoW, it's very far from its Hearthstone depiction. So to me this set is an indication that things changed in Tanaris and could be an argument for a revamp.

    Is that clearer?

    I'm not saying the wastewanderers were not a key lore feature of Tanaris, don't get me wrong, I'm just saying they've never been depicted in any way with that Borderlands/Mad Max aesthetic, or wearing what appears to be a gas mask? It's very much a continuity for Tanaris, as you said it's a very unforgiving climate... but the aesthetic feels like a big change from what we saw at the time in Vanilla and then later in Cata. Of course now the game is more modern and they can do cooler things but still, for me... it could point towards a revamp amongst other things!

    Btw, I'm not saying I'm right, this is just my opinion and y'all can disagree as much as you like

    Don’t they literally have a thunder dome?
    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.

    I mean, the city has the "Thunderdrome", a 1:1 reference to Mad Max's Thunderdome as its central feature, complete with movie referencing NPCs. In Legion they even renamed the Inn to "The Road Warrior". I'm not even saying the set must be nothing, but there's nothing particularly new about the aesthetic of it, Tanaris has always been Desert stuff + Goblin stuff.

    I'd actually expect a revamp to lean away from the mad max vibe because one would assume they'd bring Gadgetzan closer to its Hearthstone look and away from scavenger-waste-goblin-city.

    I agree that would be super cool!

    Yeah you're right, I stand corrected! I had completely forgotten about the dome and the other Mad Max difference. I guess it's time to drag an alt to Tanaris again
