Have there been any more of those annoyingly obtuse Chinese riddle leaks? Or was that nipped in the bud after last time? I can't recall.

Not that I've seen, they've likely been trimmed down so they don't leak anything ahead of time.

There was a riddle leak, yes. It claimed that we would get vrykul, ogres, drakonid and subraces.

Yes, too good to be true, but if I could choose which leak I wanted to be real, it would be that one. Since it's written in riddles, you end up filling up the blanks with whatever you expect to be real, so it seems real.

Notice that this leak came out 8/22, so it was before Gamescom. However, it did say we wouldn't get news on the expansion so soon. It also was posted way before we knew about the Silithus thing, and there's some riddles there that may (or may not) alude to that event and the power of the spilled blood of Azeroth.

Here is it:

• Thank the lord of ravens for his gifts.
• Once he already lied.
• The king of diamonds blindly believes her words.
• The third death is coming.
• This is for my son!
• Her heart is a crater, and we have filled it. Yes, yes, yes!
• Do you think it's horrifying? This is just the beginning of your nightmares.
• Thank the lord of the ravens for these five gifts.
• We create new covenant, the better than Horde or Alliance.
• Her wrath is comparable to his, and they have common goals now. Only he does not know about it yet.
• They need a new Twilight Father. You know him pretty well, sir.
• My children are rushing from the depths.
• It was a mistake to entrust this thing to a pirate scum.
• I gave it to you for a great feat, but now I return it as my lady ordered.
• Stained-glass windows don’t lie. Never.
• Our strength is in the blood. And let us not leave their blessing in these dark days.
• The prophet would not have lied, right? Yes, no, I'm talking about another.
• What about a really big bad voodoo?
• His sacrifice was in vain. Alone, in the middle of a cold emptiness.
• I chose the Abyss. Will you follow me this time?
• Our revenge on their kind is not over. There are still two out of five.
• Mortals have the right to know the fate of one who was forged by fire.
• Someday I'll fall. Or already fell.
• My true strength is not in the army or the sword, but in the crown.
• All hands on deck! Hell... it's about time.
• Now you travel the sea, then to ascend to the sky.
• The Realm of Shadows is full of cries of pain. Your cry will join this choir.
• The serpent saw her. He's on his way.
• What can be purer and sweeter than the soul?

New playable race:
• It's an honor to receive the gift of wyrm skin from you.

Alliance:
• Draenei: stay with us, who forged by light.
• Dwarves: true iron is hidden in the darkness.
• Night elves: high bloodline - high responsibility.
• Others: it's only the beginning!
• Not all of us despise our children, and someday we will stand with them shoulder to shoulder.

Horde:
• Orcs: purity is the hope for redemption.
• Undead: not only the humans became Forsaken.
• Taurens: the winds of winter call us.
• Others: it's only the beginning!
• You are not the Horde without us.

Zones:
• Where did she go? Something is wrong.
• Our wisdom in these depths
• Praise the god of the depths!
• Where did the bananas go?
• Is it possible to lose what has already been lost?
• Let the Loa tell us the way.
• They say, it was a city under the city. But the deeper lies the more evil place.
• Where does the ruined way lead?
• Under the frozen ground, only death awaits you. Our brethren are also ready to meet you.
• Ny’alota is a fairy tale for fools.
• You were so close to touching the great. And you need to swim a little more.

Afterword:
• You'll never guess whether it's true or not, until you see for yourself.
• Don’t expect news in the near weeks.

Any leak that's a crapton of info is obviously a fake. A leak always is going to come from someone on the low end of the totem pole who only has seen something like the trailer that will be shown at Blizzcon (since your actual devs tend to not want to get fired and be unhirable)

What the heck, let's have some fun:

Alliance:
• Draenei: stay with us, who forged by light. - Lightforged?
• Dwarves: true iron is hidden in the darkness. - Dark Iron?
• Night elves: high bloodline - high responsibility. - Highborne?
• Others: it's only the beginning!
• Not all of us despise our children, and someday we will stand with them shoulder to shoulder.

Horde:
• Orcs: purity is the hope for redemption. - Maghar?
• Undead: not only the humans became Forsaken. - Undead Elves
• Taurens: the winds of winter call us. - Taunka?
• Others: it's only the beginning!
• You are not the Horde without us.

Ironically enough, the riddle leak makes sense with void elves, nightborne and highmountain tauren.

Dragon trolls incoming?

There are a few things in that leak that make me think its legit.

1.) We didnt know about Illidans sacrifice yet. The "His sacrifice was in vain" is pretty close..

2.) Im unsure if we knew of void alleria yet. But I dont think we knew it was her choice.

3.) The bananas one is... hilariously on point with another leak

As Deicide said. The way it's setup makes it so you can fill it in basically any way you want to make parts seem like they are referring to something later. It's like trying to say Nostradamus predicted 9/11 because the vague shit he wrote could be twisted to seem like he was talking about it.

I don't know, "winds of winter" scream Taunka to me, not Highmountain.

Same. There is snow in Highmountain, but that zone was designed to be set in spring, according to the zone preview, and Highmountain tauren aren't nearly as associated with winter as taunka. After all, taunka are straight-up called "winter tauren" in concept art and a Horde quest.

Taunka comes to mind first, but Highmountain is a wintery place with strong winds and snow.

The riddles are vague enough to be interpreted in both ways.

Same is true with the night elf one: "high bloodline" may be talking about highborne, high elves (and void elves) or even nightborne. Any of those that ends up being true could be "predicted" by that.

The big question that remains unanswered: are taunka European or American Buffalos!

May be nothing, but the boys at MMO-C are freaking out because they found Lordaeron symbols in the arena area shown in Blizzcon videos and are now believing the expansion has something to do with Lordaeron.

But, just in case, if we get a Lordaeron expansion, I totally have "I told you first" bragging rights over it!

Lordaeron symbolism makes sense. After all, its Queen has her statue featured at the Blizzcon venue as well :p

People are thinking the symbol has to do with the expansion's themes.

"Lordaeron expansion" is the new hot topic in MMO-C megathread.

Someone also noticed that "The Troll Wars" novel also is linked to Lordaeron's origins.

I think it's nothing, but I'd be very happy if it ends up being true. Way happier than a South Seas expansion.

Could also be something completely unrelated to World of Warcraft.

I think they're meant to be American bison, since Wowpedia notes that the name "taunka" may be derived from "tatanka", the Lakota word for bison.

"The Troll Wars" novel? Haven't heard of this yet. Something new or something old?

Ok so a very popular Warcraft symbol shows up...again...and people freak out and think its related to an expansion.
I think they are reaching way to much into it and looking for anything they can grasp onto at this point as a leak
