Isn't the Lordaeron symbol also just the generic Alliance symbol that shows up on any player/NPC flagged for PVP?

Probably the last time we'll mention 7.3 until Antorus drops, but something interesting I found.

Those lightforged bunkers on Argus actually have animations for crashing into the ground as crystals and then opening up into bunkers. It's not used anywhere for whatever reason.

It was something that popped up in Amazon some time ago. No official announcement so far.

Early American settlers called bison “bufello” due to the similar appearance between the two animals, and the name "buffalo" stuck for the American variety.

https://www.livescience.com/32115-bi...ifference.html

As far as I know, there aren't any actual buffalo native to North America.

The Taunka horns look more like bison than buffalo. Also their culture seems inuit to me, so I would associate them with American bison rather than European buffalo.

I want to say it was used in the beginning of Mac'Aree on PTR, but then on live it cut straight to you standing in front of it. I may be misremembering.

I'll make a few predictions here:

1- PTR patch 7.3.5 will probably be released next week. I guess it will contain heavy spoilers about next expansion, which is why it was delayed for after Blizzcon.

2- If I counted the 11 weeks period right, Antorus will probably be released the week after, on 11/14.

3- In anticipation of Antorus, I guess we will get some sort of hype content next week, kinda like we had the Magni scenario one week prior to 7.3. I think it will be a new small chapter in Argus campaign (chapter 3 ended with us getting the Crown of the Triunvirate and Velen declaring that we were ready to attack Antorus directly, so I guess we will have a small story in which we advance towards the entrance.

These predictions may be a little off by a few weeks.

There was as shot questline on the 7.3.2 PTR that opened Antorus. Not sure how it will work on live since there you couldn't use the instance portal until you'd done that quest, and it required all previous Argus quests including the dungeon one to be completed. Maybe they'll make it account wide, but still seems unlike Blizzard to make basically an attunement quest for a raid nowadays.

There's also those still unused Argus visions of Eonar and the Pantheon's souls.

Years ago, Loarderon lamp-posts drive the forum wild.

Now, the loarderon symbol drives people nuts.

Time is a flat circle.

1. Possible.

2. They won't release a raid the week before Thanksgiving (as that makes mythic the following week unless they were to delay mythic) or Thanksgiving week. I'd guess the first week of December for the raid.

3. There's stuff we've yet to see and the raids currently blocked off so that makes sense.

Good call. I was just using the usual 11 weeks schedule to predict the raid opening, but it's possible they may change it this time.

Given we see Sargeras attacking Azeroth in the skybox from the start of the raid I'd guess theres a quest that leads to that.

Also Blizz has apparently removed the pics with the Lordaeron symbol.

We're going to suddenly get Lordaeron based 'leaks' now.

is it going to be a statue like Kerrigan's diorama or like the bronze(?) ones outside their headquarters?

EDIT: nvm i googled. I know this Lena-person is disliked but i loved this comment of him

"Is Blizzard going to guard it? Because based on some fans reactions to her they will either try to mate with the statue or destroy the statue."

That's a given.
I'm half-tempted to update my "Lands of Conflict" concept to post-Legion landscape and call it a leak, lol.

Possible it was just due to the company info on the box.
