Thread: Eclipse

  1. #1

    Eclipse

    World of Warcraft: Eclipse

    1 new "old" Zone: Feral Wilds
    Desolace and Feralas will be joined into a new zone named Feral Wilds, stretching further west than before. Part of a revamp scheme to slowly revamp old zones to size and graphic standards of modern WoW. Centaurs, Gnolls, Tauren and Night Elves will play a roll in the story as a transition from Dragonflight. Major antagonist of the zone are the Botani that came to Kalimdor with the Mag'har Orcs. They tapped into the resurgent nature magic of Desolace and Feralas to spur a rampant growth in the zone. New Dungeons: Maraudon Bloom, Dire Maul Core.

    3 new Zones
    Three new zones that are part of a undiscovered Continent to the west of Kalimdor. These zones are part of a larger landmass, instead of the island like zones of the past. Future Patches and Expansions will open up more of that landmass as the story progresses.

    First Zone: Khaz Algar
    A giant underground cove, with a landmass atop of it. both places are full with quests and activities. Residents are dwarf like creatures, the Azgar. They are the descendants of Earthen that got lost ages ago while forming the underground. New Dungeons: Archives of Ul, Defense of Algar.

    Second Zone: Tiral'Dozar
    A snowy area, and home to a tribe of snowwhite and ashgray skinned creatures that resemble a mix between Elf and Troll. The Allaridor are a splintered people, fighting for survival in the harsh climate while clinging to a deep religious believe to their moon loa. New Dungeon: Trial of the Second Moon, Freezepeak.

    Third Zone: Kalmarsh
    A swampy area and place of the Expansion Hub, Ava'Loren. This town is home to a motley crew of sailors and pirates that managed to come to this new continent. It will be a place that will change over time. It starts out as rather small and crudely build, but will be build up as a new major city that will rival Stormwind and Orgrimmar in time. Raid: Mothers Remorse.


    Features:
    Construction of Ava'Loren
    Help in the defense and construction of Ava'Loren. Earn a place in this new City as it build ups. Players will have the chance to pick one building that is created during Ava'Lorens construction that will become available in a personal phase to decorate and use as you want. Some buildings will have access to some convenient features such as crafting stations, bank access, auction house access, training facilities and more.

    Chosen of the Eclipse
    Face a new faction that will challenge what you think you know about Azeroth and the Cosmos. Will you join them or oppose them?

    Eclipse Surges
    Discover and participate in Eclipse Surges, a public event that will turn a place into twilight and summon creatures and challenges for epic rewards.

    Multiclass Challenges
    Gain temporary access to another classes abilities and face exiting challenges. Cosmetic rewards for abilities that will make them look and feel different.

    Additional Profession Revamps
    The revamp to professions that started with Dragonflight will continue. Archaeology will get a total overhaul to be ready to explore this new continent.

    Talentree Improvements
    The Talentrees will get wider with more choices and new abilities to mix and match, including new starting and end nodes.

    UI, Guild Systems, Cross Faction and Cross Server Improvements
    Many improvements for a better play experience.

    Wow, that's quite underwhelming, even for a fake leak.
    No new features, re-branded Garrison, only 6 dungeons.

    Khaz Algar was found in Dragonflight files. And no Botani in Feralas or Desolace seems odd. And I thought Avaloren was a new continent?
    FOMO: "Fear Of Missing Out", also commonly known as people with a mental issue of managing time and activities, many expecting others to fit into their schedule so they don't miss out on things to come. If FOMO becomes a problem for you, do seek help, it can be a very unhealthy lifestyle..

    I almost didn't believe this one until this part. Now I'm fully on board with "World of Warcraft Eclipse", this must be real.

    Funny how a lot of these "leaks" always sound like they were written as marketing blurbs to make them sound more plausible.
    But one would think that marketing departments would have better editors making sure the blurb looks great before being sent out. But maybe they were facing "exiting challenges.".

    Unless... This is a made up leak. But surely not.

    The fascinating part of all these leaks is that nothing stops anyone to do a :" This is the xpac I would like" or "This is the xpac that I think Blizzar will do".

    The fact that they try to embelish it with the hilarious "leak" context just screams a narcissistic need of attention , a quasi-pathological :" Look at me!! Look at me!!!" but well....this is the world right now, isn't it?

    While this sounds fun, we all know Blizzard hates trolls so we'd probably kill most of them during the expac or something.
    I don't play WoW anymore smh.

    uhm, we got new guild tabards datamined recently. I think this was the only leak so far that even mentioned guild system improvements.

    When I first saw the Botani in-game I really hoped for a druid form. Even though they are evil creatures for the player, loved their design and as a druid player I was really excited to think the tree form would be updated to look like a Botani

    Today we'll get a third thread called "Eclipse" with even more clearly false information.

    Minor correction; they've datamined new mono-color tabards that match the mono-color wanderer and vagabond gear they've been adding to the Trading Post.

    The notion that they're for guilds is presumptive, and IMO somewhat unlikely considering these new tabards appear to have about 1/3rd of the color options that the current guild tabards do, which would be an impressive step backward for an "upgrade."
    confirmed by my uncle nitnendo and masahiro samurai

    This sounds like what Blizzard would do tho.

    If we look at the timeline, this post looks quite legit and seems to be ideal candidate for the next expansion.

    See you at Blizzcon!

    This isn't real. It was posted in July. The multiclass challenge is also nonsense from a gameplay standpoint. WoW is not designed with multiclassing in mind, and even if it is just a few abilities, I don't see how this creates compelling gameplay.

    Warrior/Paladin - Warrior with wings, steed, consecration, judgment, bubble, blessings, auras. Who cares?

    Other than utility most classes have overlapping kits with abilities that fulfill the same roles. For example, Warriors have Cleave and Whirlwind, Paladins have Divine Storm and Consecrate. Giving a Warrior Divine Storm is just button bloat. They already have an AoE kit.

    Keep in mind these are also challenges with temporary access to abilities like a scenario or mage tower. No fun instanced PvE or PvP synergies.

    There's no way they'd ever implement a feature like this.

    This is also going to be WoW's 10th expansion and coincide with WoW's 20th anniversary. It will not be named Eclipse. It will be something that strongly invokes Warcraft. They will want to draw in both new and former players. It will not be a filler expansion with mediocre features. This will be a huge marketing opportunity for them.

    This may be why 10.2 is the final patch for Dragonflight. They wanted to dedicate more resources to 11.0 to truly knock it out of the park. Dragonflight may have been a testing ground to capture lightning in a bottle.
