"The Dark Prophet" - Expansion 'leak'.
« on: July 19, 2015, 02:11:14 PM »
Hey!

New potential expansion leaked, topics below! If correct, would ensue a rather Troll-centric expansion, with a new class 'Shadowstalker', a rogue/hunter, with spell slinging ranged action as either a Dark Ranger, Shadowhunter or Spirit Mender!

Obviously the authenticity of the 'leak' is highly dubious, but as ever, the topic of future expansion is rift with speculation and always sparks interesting conversation!

What do you think about the leaked information and what would you like to see in ; "The Dark Prophet"?

Seems decent enough, though I'm keeping my eye on Eye of Azshara, as that's what is trademarked by Blizzard.

As much as I think it's fake, I can't help but feel excited. It sounds like it'd be a cool expansion, as we'd get to see more of the troll homeland, The broken isles (Tomb of Sargeras!), and a return to Kezan! Plus the new class would be awesome. :P

While the content in the leak might be true to some parts. The name is not as reply #5 or something in the mmo-champ thread put it. No Trade mark applied for.

The name very well may be up in the air, yeah, I wouldn't hold out for any particular confirmed trademarked title though as Blizzard have had a history of trademarking potential names and never following through with them.

As for the content, it looks pretty sweet. I'd definitely play either a Troll Shadowhunter specced Shadowstalker or a Orc Spirit-Mender! People are moaning that the idea of that class is pointless as it fills roles already filled, but frankly, any new class wouldn't suddenly generate another role without a huge game overhaul so meh. I do think Shadowstalker is a rubbish name for the overall class idea though, any better ideas out there?

Yeah a Troll Shadow Hunter specced Shadowstalker, Dark Ranger Forsaken og an Orc Spirit mender all sound like really cool character ideas that I could see myself playing. :D Let's hope that part is true. xD

Interesting concept even if its all nonsense. I mean we all know WoD troubles at heart are that it lacks any Troll based pve content. People just arent happy unless there's a reason for a Troll based genocide.
