Huh, so I wonder if she's his apprentice or something?

Today I was looking for a room in the files to use in an image and I found this...

http://i.imgur.com/SjPf1bE.jpg

It's something called 7dl_dalaran_postoffice, I don't know what the hell it is, I've leveled up every class except for the Rogue, is this used in his campaign?

I saw too the Aegwynn Tower without texture and the KulTiras Lighthouse without texture too, I know we talked about this before, but man...they just spent some time doing this, for what? Could there be some kind of relation between Aegwynn and Kul'Tiras?

The only link between Aegwynn and Kul Tiras I know of is that she worked for Jaina.

I've never seen that mail room before. If Aram's sources about a 7.4 are correct, maybe its for that?

Well, them being Legion-made bodies wouldn't account for Eonar though, who's supposedly evaded capture by the Legion all this time.

As for them being able to create avatars, there was a specific reason they didn't want to physically come down on Azeroth in particular: they didn't want to injure Azeroth's soul. Conversely Sargeras (and probably Agrammar) wouldn't have that same cause to be concerned about collateral damage when using avatars to hack through swarms of demons on the surfaces of infested planets without world-souls. Structural damage to a world whose inhabitants have already been corrupted or killed could be repaired, but wounding a world-soul while extracting the Old Gods potentially couldn't.

Honestly Blizzcon reveals for expansions make more sense to me anyway; you can build up the hype better with a crowd that's there for Blizzard and for WoW than with a crowd that's half comprised of industry publication people who are just there to take notes before checking Blizzard off their list and heading off to another publisher's stage presentation to take more notes.

I still remember watching the Legion reveal at Gamescom when they brought up that it was the biggest demonic invasion in Azeroth's history, and the sheer indifference was palpable; I could tell hardly anyone in the audience knew enough about WoW to even know what they were talking about, let alone care.

This was really the only realistic result; after all, I don't think we've had a 7.3 panel yet, other than the bit at the end of the 7.2 one. It's not like the corporate hype machine was going to miss a chance to pull the "and you can play all this epic content when it goes live... BASICALLY TOMORROW" card that makes the normies piss themselves with glee.

Honestly yeah. Talking about next expansion when 7.3 would be coming out basically the same time wouldn't have made sense, they'd never miss that opportunity to drum up people talking about it.

It never made much sense yes. However, I wouldn't be surprised if they talk about 7.3.5 aswell, as the PTR for Legion has been up constantly, and my assumption would be that 7.3.5 would be on the PTR like a week or two after 7.3 is live. Something something, 77.

Now 7.4 talk would be truly surprising but I won't count on it.

But they already did this with Pandaria... they did this with WoTLK, I mean, there are precedent about this... So you can't say " It wouldn't make sense ".

Those expansions weren't announced the same week a patch came out.

My guesses for whatever the "big news" is are: Warcraft 3 remaster, some kind of Ruby Sanctum-esque 7.4, or a WoW/Destiny 2 cross-promotion.
You mean like a Wow Annual pass but this time for Destiny 2? Could be lucrative, I think I'd get it. It'd take advantage of their high numbers right now to lock people in for the content drought between 7.3 and next xpac, and give them a good size player base for Destiny launch, and they'd be able to show great numbers for both games over the next year. This is quite possibly what the encrypted mounts are for as well.

Months ago they announced it would be the first non-Blizzard game within the Battle.net launcher (now simply called Blizzard launcher).

Could they just be leftovers of early Dalaran designs?

Isn't Eonar just a face on a screen or something?

But they wouldn't injure the World Soul if they were just avatars!

It's definitely the case with the tower. Look at its earlier concept art.

Both areas in Azsuna, maybe.

Yeah, and the current tower is even still called Aegwynn's Gallery, isn't it?

As for the mailroom, my guess is they were originally planning to alter Dalaran more than just updating textures and adding the tower. I don't know what role a mailroom of all things could have played though; maybe they didn't know either and that's why it was scrapped.

If said avatars had to be made powerful enough to extricate the Old Gods they could, which is something Sargeras wouldn't have needed in an avatar used for just battling armies of demons. Using avatars wouldn't amount to anything if doing so safely meant having to withhold the power necessary to actually overpower and remove the threat.

Projecting themselves into smaller bodies wouldn't mean it'd take less power being needed to uproot the Old Gods from Azeroth. Unleashing that much power through avatars on the surface would probably pose the same sort of risk to the world-soul as reaching down and ripping out Y'shaarj directly did, if not even greater risk, as it would be the whole Pantheon (sans Sargeras) doing it instead of just Aman'thul.
