Oh, sure, no one has ever trashed male characters! Garrosh, Thrall, Anduin, Malfurion, Illidan, and Rhonin were all clearly female!

Characters aren't trashed because of their gender, they are trashed because they are shit.

Star Wars, as Jaina Solo was sane and responsible, unlike her idiotic brothers.

Tyrande has been annoying since well.. when they started using her which was around cataclysm.

When she went from night elf to Spanish elf.

Small leak, probably fake, but reporting here anyway. Guy claims he saw a sketch of the expansion map and was told the overall story. Very little details, making it somewhat believable, but the story how he got this info is very fishy. (Also, Kul Tiras look like a dick)

The shape of Kul Tiras is less the fault of the "leaker" and more on the source he copied it from. That's the map shown on one of the armour pieces.

That said, although I'm sure it's a fake leak, I wouldn't be surprised by a story like the one he described nor by Kul Tiras being expanded like the Broken Isles were.

That looks more legit than half of the shit we've seen so far, to be fair.

They also misspelled "Kul Tiras".

I was just joking about the shape, due to the red tip (the Horde base) being strategically positioned in the worst place possible.

Well, the guy does claim he's just bringing info he heard back then. The mispelled name does not matter in this case.

Speaking of Quel'Thelen, I wonder what kind of 'dorei void elves would be.

Legion's trademark wasn't discovered until after the announcement at Gamescom. So they've probably found a way to keep it hidden until it's announced.

Also, leak from MMO-Champion by way of 4Chan. The most legitimate sounding one I've seen so far, though doesn't really match what the armor files imply so I'm doubting it:

Quote:
The Sunken Empire

New level cap 120
New continent: Nazjatar
New neutral race: Naga
Kul Tiras and Kezan capitals
Customizable mounts
Player-designed scenarios
Relics for armor
Also, I think we can safely rule out Tel'Abim being in the next expansion:

I know you have NDA and all, but can you tell us what obviously fake leak is your favorite?
Anything involving Tel'abim (Muffinus)
I thought we agreed not to give any hints, Jeremy? (Celestalon)

In the case of Legion, however, the expansion title alone wasn't trademarkable, so Blizzard would have no hurry to secure "Legion" before anyone else.

If new expansion have a more unique title, it could be found at any moment.

I was thinking about that too.

However, "void elves" may not even be the final name of the race, just a development name. Until they appear in-lore, we can't be sure.

I tried to find thalassian or darnassian words for "shadow", "darkness" or similar names, but found none. The closest was Deathwing's name, Xaxas, which means "chaos" (or "fury"), but doesn't fit.

The coolest name I came up with was "vordorei" (based on Vordrassil), which would be something like "broken children".

Taldorei.

tal = death.

alternatively something with shal, but that is already taken, but given they are most likely high elves....

QUeldorei.

Think we'll ever get mounted combat, or would that be too broken?

Only as a zone/garrison/quest/vehicle gimmick, I think.
Best case scenario, it will be limited outdoors in non-instanced content.

Too much of a balance nightmare. Plus how would it work? You'd have to have mount only skills given the fact that certain specs like feral couldn't exactly work.

We already sort of have it in WoD Nagrand. I agree with Deicide that having it as a zone/quest gimmick will probably always be the extent of it.

Mounted combat is okay if you're a melee class but it's boring and doesn't add much if you're ranged. We have mounted combat in that WQ in Stormheim- Bareback Brawl- and it doesn't really add much to the game.

I am almost willing to bet money that they will have "STAT SQUISH" as a thing in the trailer.

I'm expecting not a single leak to be true at this point.
