10.0 WoW Expansion Leak Logo, Artwork, and More

Recommended Posts

hKtSX1i.jpg
 

We've already seen the most recent and most likely leak for the next WoW expansion, coming out of the official game site's source code, but now we've also come across the actual logo and some art for that same leak!

This one is looking very real, and aside from the logo and the art looking good, we have some potential additional evidence that this might be it below as well. But first off, here's the actual logo and concept art for Dragonflight, via Stalrore:

And here's the previously datamined armor that looks relatively close to Alextrasza's new look (as spotted by B3K1ND) :

And while that may not be a 1 to 1 match, with the source code name leak and the best looking art so far (which also came VERY close after the original name leak, which would mean a faker would have had little time to whip up something that complex), this one is looking like the real thing. We can't be certain, of course, but it's definitely the most likely leak so far, and considering the post-April 1st timing, this one is looking to be a potentially purposeful one as well.

We'll have to wait until April 19th to find out if it's real or not.

Well, whoever was supposed to keep those things a secret did a really poor job. 😁 If it's genuine, it means they dressed up Alexstrasza. It still doesn't beat the Cataclysm leak when all of the info was leaked. Also that logo template looks quite a bit like Cata.

All I hope for is no more borrowed power systems. I doubt that'll be the case though.

It looks different from HotS model. She has now a full armor chest, with what looks like green and white stripes.

The 5 dragonflights will be the new covenants / order halls. Pretty straight forward approach

Or 4, without black dragonflight, since there are too few of them. Anyway, if it were so, I assume majority would pick Red Dragonflight (guess why 😀).

I hope they don't exclude the Black Dragonflight. That would easily be my choice on my main. Lead by Ebonhorn or Wrathion.

That would have been a very small flight, although same can be said about blue. Ebonhorn certainly sounds like a wiser choice for a leader.

Knowing them, they would be lazy and copy and paste the soulbind system and have you pick Ebonhorn or Wrathion.

Yeah small, but it's not like there haven't been small factions in the past. Maybe the whole goal/quest chain for the flight could be to grow/hatch a new brood or find more Black dragons from a different timeline or something.

Yep, which is why I said they would likely reduce it to 4 dragonflights at best, so they won't have to make more Dragonflights than there were Covenants. That or if they are super lazy, they could just make another faction of united dragonflights working together, like Wyrmrest Accord. But then it's just like every other faction.

I think dragons in current story were unable to hatch new eggs. There was a quest chain in Legion beta where Wrathion found some intact black dragon eggs, but this was removed and Ebonhorn was turned into a different dragon (as it wouldn't make any sense for Wrathion to suddenly become a trusted advisor in his guise).

It is the Cataclysm logo.

      Heartbond Lupine received a new flying animation in Patch 9.2.5. In this post, we compare the old and new animations in more detail.
      Heartbond Lupine is a mount added in Patch 9.2 that comes from Protoform Synthesis. Its current flying animation makes it look as if the mount was swimming in the air. 

      In Patch 9.2.5 the flying run animation has been updated as you can see below. The mount no longer swims but walks in the air.

      Which animation do you prefer? Let us know in the comments!

      We have a pretty great new Easter egg coming with patch 9.2.5, featuring all the Windrunner siblings, a musical scene, and some props! As spotted by The Lost Codex, Windrunner Spire is getting a reference to the recent Sylvanas book in the form of 4 items scattered around the statue (with the bow actually being related to Sylvanas, not the arrow as noted later):
      Some theorized that the order in which the characters disappear after the scene ends had some meaning, but it seems to be random, and sometimes they stick around for quite a while longer as well:

      Magharathon Man programmed a run into their treadmill that follows along with an in-game video of their character running from the Scarab Gong in Silithus to the Broken Bridge in Winterspring.
      The run's at 7 miles per hour (half of the player character's speed) and mimics terrain changes. The total run lasts 1 hour 17 minutes and 20 seconds. It covers 9.02 miles with 266 feet of overall elevation gain. The whole run was live-streamed on Twitch and uploaded to YouTube.   The run begins approximately 10 minutes into the video.   Source: Reddit

      You can't do outdoor world content and matchmaking activities (LFR or Normal/Heroic dungeons, Random Battlegrounds, Arena Skirmishes) with players of the opposite faction. Guilds will remain single faction. Communities can be cross-faction and they act like guilds. You cannot walk up to a player of the opposite faction and invite them. You must be members of the same cross-faction community, Battle.net friends, or the person must be listed in the premade Group Finder tool. The system comes with some restrictions that you will find here. New Race-Specific Questlines
      Dark Iron Dwarves at Level 50 who completed their Heritage Armor questline can embark on a new quest to earn a mount and Heritage Weapons. The weapons can be used for transmog without any restrictions. Here's Grimhowl, the mount you can get.

      Blood Elves Exalted with Silvermoon City can start a new questline in Oribos that rewards a Green Hawkstrider mount and a polearm (Veil-Touched Ranseur).


      Blood Elf Paladins will additionally gain a Blood Knight armor set.


      New Enigma Arena
      The Zereth Mortis Arena will become available in the Patch 9.2.5 update.
      Encrypted Content
      Blizzard stepped up the game with encryption in Patch 9.2.5. There's a ton of encrypted content related to Brill, Lordaeron, Calia Menethil, and the Forsaken in the new patch.
      One of the splash screens is encrypted in Patch 9.2.5.  There's a rumor of an Allied Race coming as a Dragonflight pre-order bonus circulating in the community. The theory points toward Darkfallen, which are Night Elves and Blood Elves with reddish eyes. There's a new questline taking place in Tirisfal Glades. A new minimap, suggesting Brill will be remade. The map of Lordaeron refers to the post-blight stage. Brill got a new flight path in 9.2.5. We know the encrypted Lordaeron content has something to do with Calia Menethil. One quest named Eyes of the Wolf wasn't encrypted. Still, it doesn't give much away. There is an encrypted armor set. Patch 9.2.5 could be the new standard when it comes to hiding content until the update hits live servers. Torghast Wings Availability
      Torghast will have all its wings open in Patch 9.2.5. They will no longer be on a rotation.

      New Stay Awhile and Listen Conversations
      We have two endgame gossip dialogues available in 9.2.5. The first one's between Jaina and Khadgar.

      The second dialogue is available between Taelia and Bolvar Fordragon.

      Updated Reporting Tools
      The report player tool has been updated in Patch 9.2.5. We covered the changes in a separate post. Here's a preview of the new report UI.

      Social Contract in World of Warcraft
      Social Contract is a new policy that you must accept before playing World of Warcraft or leave the game. It's also coming to Wrath Classic.


      Flying Lupine Mount Animation Updated
      The Heartbond Lupine is getting a brand new flying animation in Patch 9.2.5.
      Updates to Stormwind and Orgrimmar
      Stormwind and Orgrimmar have been updated with new stable areas and their purpose is still unknown.

      Renown Catch-Up Improvements
      Broker Mark of Distinction will increase the Renown of your active Covenant to 60 (up from 40). Renown catch-up is accelerated through Renown 60 (was 48). You'll gain 1 Renown from the following activities in Patch 9.2.5: Mythic and Mythic+ Dungeons, Torghast Layers 9-16, defeating Shadowlands raid bosses and winning Rated Battlegrounds. New Oribos Portals
      In preparation for Shadowlands Season 4, Blizzard is adding new portals to Oribos to make it easier for players to reach the new dungeon locations.

      Legendary Leveling Improvements
      Leveling up base items for Legendaries will become a lot easier in Patch 9.2.5! The experience required to reach higher base item ranks has been drastically reduced to allow more players to engage in the system late in the expansion.

      It only takes 3 crafts per rank to reach the next Base Item rank in Patch 9.2.5
      This article was partially inspired by MrGM's video linked below. The post contains some information not present in the video. Let me know in the comments down below if there's anything else missing!

      A player in World of Warcraft tried out how many times they could fit the word "Silvermoon" into everything game-related and the result is pretty amazing.
      Heavily inspired by the Revolver Ocelot meme, we present you Sílvermoon of Silvermoon member of the Silvermoon guild located on the Silvermoon server in Silvermoon City!


      Now let us break things down a bit to make this less confusing:
      The character's name is Sílvermoon. They obtained the "of Silvermoon" title from Exalted Champion of Silvermoon City. The player plays on a server named Silvermoon and is a member of the Silvermoon guild. The player is located in Silvermoon City.
      Next, Sílvermoon summoned a companion who also happens to be called Silvermoon.

      And to conclude everything on an epic note, Silvermoon (the companion) received a silver moon mark above its head...
