    The base color of the energy on the Blighted Brute is 50 255 255, like I said: Cyan. Drust magic uses basically the same color range as Ardenweald's anima gamut.

    The gryphon is using something like 60 200 170. It's a significantly greener color. It's approaching Maldraxxus anima in color.



    It also just isn't really drust aesthetic.
    How about comparing the gryphon with the green background energy from the Void Dreadlord pic?

    It's almost certainly AI and AI doesn't know how to handle structures that aren't basic limbs. You'll note that it also couldn't figure out that wings go to the back--they're lined up with the spaulders. That's also why it's full of just poorly reading jumbles (the head section, the wing, the legs, the non-claw hand).

    Well assuming it isn't AI then the only thing I can imagine is that the left side of his body is slowly phasing out of reality.
    The wing being weird, his hand being weird, the left side of his chest being weird.

    I think that more so because that is how you make something look smoky than because they are the same.

    Yeah that was my first thought, but if they really wanted to go full bang "Chaos" then it would fit for the design to look weird.

    The colors of the "aura" matching like that is very sus.

    I mean they are basically the same Aurora Borealis type color and effect, which I think may be the inspiration for both.

    But the color of the glow on the gryphon mount DOES match the drust blight environmental effects in Ardenweald. And the eyes of the Kul Tiran druid forms.

    The picture looks painfully AI, but it's possible it was generated to hint at something without leaking real images that could get someone in trouble, and the color is part of that.

    Ah, whatever, we'll know soon enough I guess.

    Why are we calling it a Void Dreadlord? Looks way closer to a fire elemental like Smolderon or Baleroc in my opinion.

    The violet colour coming from the creature itself also stands in stark contrast with the background, which has that greenish hue. So assuming the image is real, which I don't think it is, my bet would be that the creature is in a location where he doesn't belong. He's a Void creature invading someplace, or a creature native to that place (perhaps a fire elemental) that has become corrupted by the Void.

    The location itself screams "Yogg-Saron" to me, since that's his colour, and it looks to be underground.

    I don't really agree that it matches the environmental effects.

    It matches the KT druid form eyes, but the KT druid forms also have noticeably more green effects than actual drust magic does (I assume specifically to make it readily clear that they aren't just using the exact same dark magic). They also specifically have a much more naturalized organically grown wicker look isntead of the bundled together artificial wicker look.

    I just don't see this thing being at all drust related. Especially since nothing else about it is drust-like.

    if you look at the full texture pack there is also dark purple

    It being a gryphon, and also very much NOT a normal gryphon with any spell effects we know, makes me wonder if we are getting another OCshit Shadowlands 2 expansion.

    Do we know what wowexdev's header is from? Unlike the "Void Dreadlord", this one doesn't look AI generated, and is in a way higher resolution. It's also a bigger but cropped version of this: Which is Scaleface's profile picture.

    Haven't really seen anyone talking about this picture, but it looks interesting. Two big dark blue creatures on the side of the person with armor that kinda reminds me of the Dreadlords, and what looks to be the tail of something (Azshara?) hovering in the big purple orb.

    That's my feeling, as well. I checked the metadata and didn't find anything (though I may have not been sufficiently meticulous), so if it is a hint at all, it's presumably in the content. The giant sword has me convinced Houle was on the money with something happening with C'thun in Silithus.

    The blue stuff looks incredibly fake to me.

    Well, the armor looks pretty Draenic. I could've sworn I've seen it before as a WoD or TBC armor set, down to the green details, but I sadly can't find it after combing through Wowhead's dressing room sets. Either way, I'm not sure if that looks AI-generated or not to me. There's some odd details and textures that read as AI fuckery to me, but it may be due to distortion.

    Really? That one looks especially AI generated. Generic dude in purple ish armor that doesn't look like anything specific, and which avoids common issues like hands. The big things on the sides are what really get to me though. One had one big eye on one side, and kinda three eyes on the other. One has the weird visor thing. None of them look like they were designed with a specific intent behind them, but rather just generic blue aliens.

    All the features bleed into each other like what you usually see in AI creatures.
    One of the ones in the back look like they have the heartless emblem from Kingdom Hearts as well.

    That's my feeling, as well. Then again, those might not be creatures and could be some kind of weird ridges we're reading as looking like faces. Either way, I'm still pretty suspicious of this one. It strikes me as an eclectic mishmash of aesthetics from Shadowlands and TBC on top of its distortions and peculiarities.

    Looks more like StarCraft stuff to me honestly.
