Old Shadowlands Leaks, How Much of Them Came True + Rankings!

Recommended Posts

With the season of leaks upon us for 10.0, we thought it might be interesting to take a look back at this same period before Shadowlands, with all the many leaks (89, in fact) and see just how many of them got things right for the current expansion, and to put some of these 10.0 "leaks" into perspective!

Darth_infamous brought up this very fun and useful google sheet which goes over all 89 leaks for Shadowlands, as well as takes a look at what features it got right and wrong, even ranking them all! I'm still reeling from the fact that there actually were 89 leaks for SL (and probably more that aren't covered here), but the WoW community always has been creative.

The really interesting thing to see here is that a LOT of the Shadowlands leaks are pretty much copy-pasted over to the 10.0 ones (with some modifications for theme), but it's a fascinating thing to look over in any case, so dive in if you have some extra time or are just curious!

Now the scoring system on the table is... questionable at best, as the highest one, "Wrath of the Bolvar", basically has nothing that came with Shadowlands other than Bolvar being involved, so I'm not quite sure what the principle of the system is. However, there are some pretty spot-on ones, like the "Cinematic transcript #1", which really looks like an early version of the intro cinematic we actually got. Then there's the more well-known ones, basically any that involve images, like the "Shadowlands #1 ":

And of course there's the most famous one:

In any case it's pretty fun to look through all these and especially compare them to some of the more recent leaks on 10.0, some of which we've covered already and a lot more that we'll get to soon. So head on over to the huge google sheet and let us know what you think of some of these!

I remember these, they were made before patch with N'zoth. Some people assumed N'zoth and Void Lords were located in Shadowlands, Ny'alotha included, so these were based on this assumption. That "tilted" look to make them appear as they were taken in secret was quite funny. And of course, there was Siege of Stormwind, also made before last patch was revealed.

The fact we didn't get Wrath of the Bolvar in Tel'abim Island is proof evil exists

Can't wait to find the source of those Tel'Abim bananas! 🍌

Anything that mentions Tinker needs tossed on the rubbish pile from the start, that was settled back during Alpha/Beta, when it was removed as a class and reintroduced as the Engineering profession.

Funny how this has been in so many fake leaks for a few expansions now. It keeps reappearing, current exp "leaks" also have Tinker in them, so did Shadowlands, BfA, Legion.

      We have a very Dracthyr-looking piece of concept art from way back pre-Vanilla, as xperio28 spotted a bulkier version of the new race coming in Dragonflight in the Art of World of Warcraft book!
      There's been a lot of talk about the look of the Dracthyr, mostly focusing on their size and bulkiness, and while the art below almost certainly isn't of this specific race, as it was made pre-Vanilla WoW, it's looking very similar:

      Source: xperio28.
      The text is very hard to make out, but enigmapenguin and YendorWons in the thread may have figured it out, at least partially:
      Greater whelp grown to man size will hunt other dragon whelps then larger dragons feed on The whole "feed on" aspect is particularly interesting, as there's plenty of speculation going around on whether or not Galakrond, the OG dragon-eater will have something to do with Dragonflight's story (especially with the potential for the Infinite dragonflight's involvement).
      We've have plenty of bipedal dragon-like creatures in WoW over the years so the connection isn't direct, but it is interesting to see how far back the idea of playable-looking dragon race goes, especially since we know the original plan was to have many more playable races, including naga.
