    So, regardless of whether or not this is "real" or "fake", are we excited about it or not?

    I think it looks really cool, though I think people who are enjoying the down to earth style of Dragonflight who were hoping for a world revamp are gonna be disappointed.
    The designs of the two creatures in the twitter banner look awesome.

    I remember a “leak” prior to Legion that was clearly a mock of WoD. It was called the Dragon Kings of Azeroth. It had Jaina going back to pre first war Eastern Kingdoms and helping the rulers from back then to enslave the Aspects and funnel their powers in order to wipe out the Horde when they invade. I think it was:

    - The Menethils of Lordaeron with the red flight.
    - The Sunstriders of Silvermoon with the bronze
    - Archmage Antonidas and Dalaran with the blue
    - The Bronzebeards with the black flight with Ironforge being the first raid.
    - I can’t remember who had the green flight. I want to say Gilneas but it may have also been the Arathi.

    I imagine most would have hated that, but I’d have loved it and still would if we got anything like it.
    I don't think we need time travel. Zone revamp could include sprinkling in some stuff that should probably already be there. A lot of stuff like the old gods and such weren't really fully developed concepts in vanilla to the level of world building history they've established today.

    Nothing crazy, just tuck some mysteries into like border areas and hard to reach areas for flavor and maybe future content npc areas.

    Question is, IF it’s real, where is it?

    - Nathreza?
    - K’Aresh?
    - Beyond the Umbral Veil?
    - Avaloren?
    - Somewhere created for the expansion?

    Nope. This is giving me Argus and Shadowlands vibes. Terrible direction to take the game if this turns out to be real.

    Is it possible that those "images" are of a world revamp of Azeroth? In other words, we got cracked and that's the result.

    doesn't look like azeroth so it's not avaloren. nathreza probably not because the zones in these pictures don't fit the dreadlord style. it's probably k'aresh or the umbral veil

    That creature in t&e left corner or at least the head of it reminds me of a mix between ysharjj and the devourers from SL who were supposedly a force that wants to consume all

    What are you even talking about.
    Argus was one of the best pieces of patch content in the game so far.

    As the final patch for an expansion.

    An entire expansion looking like that? Terrible idea.

    Tbh there’s so much potential things that the images COULD be. People keep jumping to the images instantly meaning the expansion would be entirely in the void.

    Hypothetically if Blizz adds a new race again next xpac, it could be the starting zone. (Like K’aresh if Ethereals are a new race)

    it wasn't for me. Thinking back I guess the most enjoyable patch was the second half of suramar story with Karazhan and Trial of Valor. I've greatly enjoyed time rifts more recently. But one of the greatest patches would be Isle of thunder

    No entire expansion looks like their main theme. Legion wasn’t all green. Shadowlands wasn’t all black… etc etc.

    If we're going to a literal Shadow world, the vast majority of the game will look like that. Again, a terrible direction to take the game in.

    If Argus was a whole expansion it would've obviously been more than fel green. I mean hell, Argus as a patch wasn't all fel green (just two thirds of it).

    Just like how the shadowlands were all just death death death aesthetic, right?

    You’re being purposefully obtuse. That’s not how blizzard operates.
    They’d make it diverse enough. Maybe with various different flavors of void… maybe a zone where the light has a foothold.

    There’s speculation that Elune could be a void lord focused around how her magic looks a bit like the Cosmic Void stuff. Maybe a zone around her if that ends up being true.

    The majority of it was, which was my point.

    That sounds like Shadowlands all over again. Even down to the light having a foothold in a zone.

    Not really?

    Maybe half of it, at best. Bastion sure wasn't death aesthetic, nor was Ardenweald outside of the decayed portions. Maldraxxus was sure, and I could give a large part of Revendreth, but it was already pretty varied and far different from how the Shadowlands had been presented previously.

    This idea that a shadow-based expansion, or Argus, or whatever would be too narrow and not varied is silly.

    And I say that as someone who was arguing similar with an Undermine-themed expansion!

    Don’t bother. He is always purposefully obtuse. If something isn’t what he wants or he’s made up in his head that he’s right then no matter of reason or logic will work with him.
