Blizzard Expansion Leak

So a buddy of mine said I could either get the expansion name or the premise and features so I went ahead and asked him for the latter. In less than a week you'll find out it's real so just sit tight.

-----

Velen's pursuit of empowering the world to fight against the Burning Legion leads him to adopt spells drawn from Twilight energy.

The Naruu and the Council of Exarchs believe Velen is following a dark and selfish path to power although Velen's true allegiance lies with the armies of Azeroth.

The Council of Exarchs agrees to remove Velen's power to which Velen reacts by anchoring their souls to the void.

Doing this, he discovers that for every being he anchors to the void he is able to summon another.

Now without the fear of losing his powers to the Council, Velen seeks out powerful beings from the void to join his army of followers, at the cost of anyone unwilling to serve his cause.

With his army of followers, Velen summons an entire world known as K'aresh from the void to the west of Kalimdor.

- level cap raised to 105
- new continent: K'aresh
- new race (neutral): Ethereal
- new Priest specialization: Twilight
- Warlock redesign

- Ethereals will play a major part in the expansion.
- Dimensius the All-Devouring and his minions will be the immediate threat to the players venturing into K'aresh.

Planned raids:

- Void Spire

- Farahlon (the Draenei city residing in what was previously known as Fields of Farahlon) will be featured in an upcoming patch when Velen summons a missing piece of Outland. Turalyon and Alleria will be discovered here.

- The Exodar will be the final raid with Velen being the end boss.

Can I make the world burn, if it is real ? I mean, Draeneļ players have lost Maarad, surely Blizzard wouldn't be stupid enough to force us to kill old man Velen...

Looks like shit.

So yeah, could be legit . Would work better with just a Caverns of Time expansion, but well.

Still think the best thing for the story would be:

* Naga expansion
* Burning Legion expansion

And then be done with WoW, or continue with Old Gods or something else.

A Blizzard president with a name like Tom Brown or something like that introduced this guy dressed like Marty McFly (but looked noting like Michael J. Fox) who break danced for about 30 minutes while this girl hung from a pipe doing an unfunny comedy routine. After he was done dancing the reveal ended.

Velen is the end boss because Blizzard were concerned that WoD alienated the Horde playerbase too much. An Alliance end boss was necessary to make it fair.

Part of me wants this to be the expansion just to see the complete meltdown of every WoW fan forum in existence.

Seeing what a stupid curveball WoD turned out to be lorewise, I can't really tell apart the bad leaks from those that could be considered plausible anymore. I have no idea what Blizzard's vision for WoW is anymore. Are they just slamming out filler expansions to introduce new future end-bosses and stupid plot twists? Because that's what MoP and WoD felt like.

MMO-Champion found the thread? I couldn't find any mentions of it anywhere besides one post on the official forums.
