WoW: What are the Leaks in 8.3 and 9.0? Alleged Blizzard employee holds AMA
WoW (buy now 14,99 EUR) Patch 8.2 is almost here and many questions remain about the future. There is a lot of speculation about the lore and the game itself. What role will Sylvanas, the Old Gods, play? What will happen in the next expansion of the empire? Will there be new classes? These are just a few of the big questions that WoW fans have been wrestling with. These questions are being answered by Blizzard, who take their time. They aren't going to reveal too much.
Although... a Blizzard employee was in a very talkative mood on 4Chan recently, He offered to answer all questions about Battle for Azeroth, the upcoming expansion, in an informal AMA (Ask me Anything / "ask anything you want") round. First, we don’t know if he was a real employee of Blizzard or if he just wanted to share their speculations about the future. His statements should be taken with a grain if you take them seriously. We also want to warn you about spoilers at this point.
Sylvanas, the BfA storyline
- BfA will not see Azshara die. In the final battle of BfA it will be our job save Sylvanas and seal the prison of N'Zoth. She was willing to give everything to stop N’Zoth. But not all her actions are forgiven. There is some debate about whether Saurfang and Thrall will eventually sacrifice themselves to save Sylvanas. Baine is made the new Warchief and makes peace with Anduin. Sylvanas and her allies flee to escape from the Alliance's wrath. Patch 8.3 takes us to Nya'lotha, the sleeping city. The largest zone we have dealt with to date is being divided into multiple areas. We will be able to reach the zone through a portal.
The next WoW expansion
- The next expansion will focus on the return and rise of the dragonflights.Furorion will play a correspondingly large role in this expansion.We will fight against the forces of death and Elune will stand by us in battle as a kind of aspect of light.In future expansions, more hidden islands will come to light.So far, plans call for 10.0 (the expansion after next) to take us to Ka'resh, the home of the Astrals, which was attacked by the Void Lords.There are plans for some sort of time travel to ancient Azeroth, where we will meet the Elven Queen Azshara.For 9.0, more leveling adjustments are apparently planned, plus, according to the leak, the developers are considering how to bring the factions closer together in the future without making War Mode completely nonsensical (the supposed Blizzard employee doesn't think things like mixed guilds or capitals open to all races being talked about will ultimately be implemented).Even before 9.0, the level squeeze to level 60 is supposed to happen. The expansion will allow us to reach level 70.3 and one expansion is already in the concept stage. A tank uses special power armor. A DD relies on stealth, bombs, and cannons. Healers use healing robots.VulperaMechagnome and Ransomed Undead. There is also talk of Ransomed Undead shifting to Alliance side. There are also plans to create a new tribe Wild Boars to use Worgen Skeletons and join the Horde. No version of WoW has proven convincing. There are no plans to offer WoW free2play at any time.
Information about Blizzard
- Many employees at Blizzard wouldn't have any passion for WoW. It is a regular job. Many of them don't even play the game. Communication between them would mainly take place through notes and paper. According to the source, direct communication would be rare. Blizzard employees don't get Blizzard gaming for free. The source stated that it wouldn't make any sense because most WoW players are men.
We want to stress that it is not clear if the 4Chan user is actually an employee of Blizzard. We don't know whether his answers are correct. All the answers this employee could have given could be incorrect!
