Sounds good if it's real, a decent fake if not. Not holding my breath but this would be enjoyable.
I mainly call fake, because we were told that K'aresh was consumed by the Void, and all the Ethereals who had escaped were already on Azeroth/Outland.
Sounds very, very fake. I don't think Blizzard would be crazy or stupid enough to do an expansion that is, in essence, a heavily phased Outland. IMO this was written by someone who very dearly wants Outland to be rewritten to reflect the 'present' in game lore.
I doubt it's legit.
I did love BC, but I also believe that game mechanics have hit a wall in this game.
Blizzard uses an intranet, and specific, proprietary program for sending and receiving internal messages. The only way something legit like this would be leaked is if someone hacked the computer and got the files (lol this isn't PSN...) or if the person receiving it leaked it, personally, intentionally, and the kind of people that would have their hands on info this sensetive would never be so stupid, or disloyal, to do such a thing.If, in the long run, we see many similarities, I wouldn't be surprised, however, I wouldn't give any accreditation to this, at all.
The shadow priest comment is way weird, and sort of really hurts the chances of it being real. The wording of the document however is classic corporate prepwork for presentations.It's prolly fake, but it's worth looking at, at least.
I say fake because i dont think blizzard would make Deadwind Pass a level 1-10 area down from a level 50-60 area. Although it would make for a cool expansion if it was/is real
I love this! It's like if Blizzard is making content obsoletion into LORE! That's right! Think about it... Players don't give a damn about outland and only clear the Legion's forces in Hellfire, Zangar/Terokkar and Nagrand. Every time a player forgoes leveling in the inefficient Shadowmoon, Blade's Edge or Netherstorm (you should be 68 by then), then the Burning Legion gets stronger. It's so smart I can't believe the B-Team would come up with this.Note: Sarcasm is a beautiful thing. Also, even if this is rumored, the B-Team isn't smart enough to create any worthy content so they'll probably just steal this "rumor".
I...don't know what to think. Or what to hope for, really. It sounds awesome, and I LOVE the idea of the new Shadow Priest lore, among other things, but....Oi vey.
http://wow.joystiq.com/2011/07/03/vengeance-of-the-void-leak-is-a-fake/ internal sources at Blizzard confirm it's a fake... plus the memo format was completely wrong. bad troll is bad
The other WoW news site just confirmed it as being fake. Trolls love posting fake crap on MMOwned. It's best to just assume that anything 'leaked' there is fake as it's just infested with people who just want to screw with the thousands of anonymous and non-contributing leeches on that site.MMOwned normally gets their information 3rd hand anyways when it comes to actual leaked info (IE, they get their leaks from ANOTHER leak site). So I honestly don't know why people even bother with that site anymore.
mmo champ has said it's fake. Though I suppose that isn't an official statement either.
This is a great idea, as I love Outland, but yeah, the Shadow priest part is sketchy..."lore for the 'neglected' shadow priest class"?
Then again maybe they are trying to cover this leak up who knows WoW has taken a lot of weird turns lately this may be real...
