It seems to have been removed from the game files entirely, as trying to load the model from old news posts on Wowhead just gives you a generic horde ship model, and modelviewer won't work for it all on MMO-Champion.

However, based on what MMO-Champion named the image, it is in the expansion 5 folder, rather than any expansion 6 or anything. Though within that it is labeled "6HU."

it may sound silly, but it feels to...small. the lack of doors, the simplicity of it. feels like more placeholder then usable. Like a model we would use in a cinematic, but never actually see ingame.

The "transport" ship type that's still used in Tanaan and the garrison doesn't have doors either and is about the same size.



I updated the picture post with the file name. There is a six in it, but it could mean nothing.

Expansion 5 equals Warlords of Draenor. 6HU refers to 6.0 though. All Alliance Garrison stuff is labeled with 6HU.

As for being removed from the files, that isn't the case. Loaded up in the actual model viewer. Afaik, wowhead/mmochampion use models linked to npcs and similar things, and due to them changing those into the forsaken ship/ icebreaker it is of coure linked to that instead.

Ah, that makes sense. I wonder why they're not going to use it then?

One possibility: Alliance versus Horde design. The transport was used by both.

Another: all old ships have a more similar quality, while these new ones DO stand out.

Still, given that they created them in the first place tells me that they intended to use it in the near future for something, too, as else they wouldn't spend ressources on that NOW.

The Iron Horde ship is used, but it's faction neutral for the "carrier" ships.

TLDR:

A poster on this forum named Curll was also a Chinese forum MVP and chummy with some aspects of Blizzard's fandom while living in LA. We became IRL friends while I interned at Blizzard and I suggested he apply for a job as one of Blizzard's translators, and he got the job. He leaked the plot of WoD a few days before Blizzcon to some of SoL's members, who blabbed about it elsewhere. At the time I was taking a break from WoW and SoL so I wasn't following it closely, but when I heard the rumors I contacted him and asked if he was responsible for the leak. He told me he wasn't, and I believed him.

A day or two before Blizzcon, I got a call from one of Blizz's lawyers. They asked me questions and they knew the leak somehow involved SoL, and they knew that because I was an intern at Blizzard in 2012 I was apparently a suspect for the leaks. I told them that some people were claiming that Curll was responsible for the leaks, and I told them his real name and his department in Blizzard because I honestly believed him when he said he wasn't involved, and I had hoped they could talk to him to clear things up. At this point I should mention that while Curll's leaks were accurate (we'd be going back in time to Draenor and fighting the old chieftains of the Horde), I actually didn't believe the leaks were real because the idea sounded so fucking stupid to me. I later found out Blizz talked to him, discovered he was responsible for the leaks and canned him the day of Blizzcon. A lot of people on this forum felt I threw him under the bus to maintain a good relationship with Blizzard, though I maintain I thought I was looking out for him based on the information he gave me. Had he told me he was responsible for the leaks I would've clammed up and played ignorant.


(for the record, Blizzard also suspected Tommy Newcomer and Mike Sacco, because they had posted on SoL too. I actually thought Mike was behind the leak and if anything, I fingered him rather than Curll and I hope I didn't cause him too much grief)

And the tl, dr version of that is: A talkative idiot and a snitch. And yes i'm talking about Ruishin (iirc) and Omacron. No, i dont give a shit if he told you he wasnt the source.

Cringing at us losing Curll for WoD of all things.

Don't blame you there. I remember the leaks and thinking that it sounded absolutely idiotic.

Anyone who has inside info like that and leaks it to others is, honestly, an idiot. Its just not worth the risk to your job.

The take away here is that Omacron fingered Mike.

But yeah... WoD seemed pants on head when the leak reached me... and... it's held up!
