Yeah. As opposed to general burning legion lore.

Well I wanna know why there are Moose Tauren, it just seems really weird to me that we've got these tauren variants in every other expac.

Also what the fuck is a drogbar?

It also seems like we'll see something with Sylvanas and the Val'kyr judging by the Vrykul.

The highmountain apparently changed design since we last saw them, because we can't just have a race in another location, they need to be visibly different.
I guess Drogbar are dark trolls, or some sort of troll-related race. They look rather close.




The zones really should be separate islands. Having them mashed together like this doesn't quite make sense with what the broken isles are supposed to be.



Also, Anduin's new model looks dorky.

Yeah, no sailing in the island expansion allowed

I feel like my tweet accurately sums up this expansion:

Last time they were this terrified about sub losses, we got transmog. Shows how desperate they are now.

I'm partially excited. Mostly for the Legion stuff and Illidan. But I'm afraid they're gonna cut features and questlines again, and it will end up a jumbled mess. Obvious casualties are gonna be Genn and other Alliance characters. And Bad writing. Lord knows how bad they can fuck it up.
And it does show the desperation. They lost so many players so they just threw all the contents people asked for in one expansion. It can either end good, or most likely, very bad.

Ok, until now the story just makes me wanna puke, just because the intro cinematic is Gul'dan finding Illidan.

BUT

That class and spec-legendary shit is just simply AMAZING. Plus, we get Vrykul, Val'kyr, Broken Isles, Dalaran lore (maybe) and I saw Genn Greymane in the Legion website which could be cool.

Can't say I'm happy with it, lorewise, but the game as a whole seems really fun.

Oh well

World trees are popping up everywhere, damned.

I hope there's some focus on Tyrande in addition to Genn. This expac seems like a shoo-in for her, short of an Azshara-centered one.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

A waste of time, a waste of emotional tension, a waste, if you fail to grasp the significance of narrative, of money.

Want to make sure that she is all right.

Why would timey whimey Gul'dan seek Ilidan?

Why would Ilidan help Gul'dan?

Why would Ilidan help us?

How is Ilidan alive?

>No Transmog revamp/overhaul
>Class Halls [for several classes] make fucking zero sense from a Lore or Story POV, the immersion is fucking terrible
>Demon Hunters, a class we didn't need or, in many cases, especially want
>Illidan is back because oh boy we need more emo whining
>Gul'Dan-Timey-Whimey has a big hand in all of this, joy
>It literally is 2/3 expansion ideas smashed together


So utterly not interested from a Lore or Immersion POV.

Gameplay wise? Eh, there's some interesting things there but it's still light on details and I'm far from sold given what we have heard. Need more info before I decide on a purchase or not.

Don't be so naive, we all know it's going to be about the Wrynns.

I'd be more happy for Illidan coming back if the writers weren't terrible at their job and it was in the same vein as a Deadpool-style character redemption.

Gul'dan rezzed him after Maiev brought his body back to the Warden Jail. He was a half demon, so his soul was in the Twisting Nether. Not much to bring him back.
