My real question is what will happen to Darnassus and Undercity as capital cities. Will they still be there? Will we swap? They said that they would be intact for leveling players, but if they're truly changed, this could be the start of some hardcore whole-zone phasing.
Finally we come to the only point that catched my attention during this Blizzcon (Wow wise). This part of the story is what really intrigued me.Can't wait to see where this leads to.
"Glistening substance"? Those are lights from the people living on Teldrassil. Look at the Warcraft movie concept art image of Teldrassil, they exist there as well.
Quite a lot of suspense!
All I want is for Sylvanas to not be involved with the burning of the damn tree. And if that really is Vereesa... should she die... Sylvanas would probably go ahead with her former plan of raising her, yeah? Then, if you add Alleria... not quite how I imagined that Windrunner reunion would go but I'll take it :')
Amazing roundup of speculations. Always nice to think ahead of ourselves... and maybe even get some stuff right! hehe...
Whoever burned my tree is going to suffer...
Guessing that the Desolate Council is an offshoot of the many Twilight's Hammer cultists we saw in Tirisfal during Legion artifact chains and were the ones to spark this war (just like they did in Cataclysm). There's obviously some shady ^&*! going on beneath Tirisfal and luring the Alliance to amass a siege there is probably a really bad idea for everyone without tentacles.
Very cool consept arts !
I think this is just purely a trade-off between Alliance taking Lordaeron first, so they go to burn Teldrassil next and take over Night Elves' territory.
Feels really sad about that we will not be able to defend our home (not just Teldrassil, even Undercitty as Horde). :(Even if we loose in the end, it could be the most epic scenario. :(
Inb4 8.2 siege of undercity
Interesting history! For the Horde! For the Azeroth!
I believe they are misleading us, the name "Battle for Azeroth" is ambiguous it could refer to both the war between the factions and the war (to come) against N'zoth. I believe that the Desolate Council, as Nobbel said, might be the responsible for the burning of Teldrassil and the start of the war between the Horde and Alliance. However, I think this is not all that will happen in the expansion, I believe that as the war goes on the Old Gods will begin to show their filthy tentacles and take advantage of the conflict between the factions.
I always knew that Sylvannas was cooking something, from when I started playing and, astonished, witness the acid attack at the Wrathgate. But I didn't expect this turn, using the whole Horde against the Alliance, I thought it would be more of the Forsaken against all the living. I'm not sure how I feel about it, though I'm certain I just don't like it: everyone fighting one another, while Azeroth suffers... -.-Teldrassil burned? Man, I'm Horde and I cry. How are they going to repair this? Cataclysm destroyed many, many places and stayed that way, but... this is a capital city :(
I was hoping for an Old Gods exp, after all that has happend one would think the factions could make up and be friends but nooo.
