Wait wait wait, I thought the Nerubians were Old God worshippers (like the Aqir and Mantid), which set us in the middle of a Scourge vs. Old gods fight.

But the I remembered the Nerubians in the Azjol Nerub instances sent us to kill the Faceless whatshisname in Ahn'Kahet.

But then again, as far back as 2007, Blizz stated Nerubians and Old Gods were B.F.F... Could there be some kind of philosophical split among the people of Nerub? Or did they ask us to kill the Faceless as "acceptable collateral" or just as a backstab against a rival?

Hmmm. Not sure. After reading up a bit it seems C'thun was friends with the original Aqir, but it's unclear what happened with the Sundering when the Aqir were split into the Nerubians and the Qiraji. Obviously the Qiraji remained loyal to C'thun but I'm guessing the Nerubians lost contact/broke free.

The quests in AN states that when the Nerbians fought against the Scourge they dug a little too deep and discovered the faceless ones, who they also warred against. It seems like they're not huge fans of the Old Gods at all.

The Old Gods are not exactly friendly with each other either - so while the Nerubians might still be loyal to C'thun it doesn't mean they're loyal to N'zoth.

In the Frozen Throne campaign, Anub'arak was also terrified of the Faceless Ones.

Yeah, so most probably the Nerubians lost contact with the Old Gods, found freedom to their tastes, and would be horrified at the prospect of becoming slaves again.

Which makes the Mantid a nice twist on the same concept, actually.

The big issue I have with that pastebin, is that its based on the old 10-level expansion premise.

I saw a blue quote not a week back that talked about 5 level expansions as a given at this time (something about getting new abilities when you get 5 more levels in a new expansion - nb! not verbatim)

So this seemslike ooold specuulatioen - which probably means its based on something that blizzard once worked on (and where cataclysm was 80-90, with no pandaria), so some of it will probably be true, but I still call BS on whoever is posting it actually knowing anything xecpt 5-6 year old thoughts and ideas - maybe with a little personal speculation mixed in.

At best it could be early-concept stuff, where the final product ends up significantly different.

Remember how much changed between what Blizzard said Cataclysm would be like and what launched? At Blizzcon the Maelstrom wasn't involved at all, Deathwing came up through a hole north of Stormwind, and that hole was where we'd have to fly to enter Deepholm. They also said Deathwing had gone down under Grim Batol after flying around the world making Deathwing's Scar, and that was where we'd face him, IIRC.

But really, I think this is all just guesswork based on the name and the likely storylines.

I just want more underwater zones. :D For questing, that is. Maybe an underwater 5-man, but I think raiding in water would get frustrating fast. :roll:
But definitely more underwater questing zones! Loved it. Oh and more mushroom forests! Give me a mmmmmmassive cave that you access from under the sea, with a huge mushroom forest growing inside it!

It does look like as just random speculation.

However, it does make sense. Would like to discover that the expansion is along those lines (even if zones are completely different, the storyline proposed in that post sounds very plausible)

Well the datamined Hellscream weapons were for levels 90-100, with the caveat "don't take the level range as indication of anything."

Plus remember people have complained about 5 levels not really giving much content to enjoy as it ends up in being almost no leveling istances, making leveling by istancing extremely boring.

Leveling by instance is always boring.

I understand that level 100 is a big deal, and a nice round number, but would anyone REALLY care if every expansion was 10 levels and the game ended on level 120 or whatever? I know I sure wouldn't give damn in any direction.

People are weird and like specific numbers. Some people focus on "pssh, only 5 levels so obviously it is less content than if it had 10 levels." which ignores that Blizzard could make it so MoP leveled us from 86-125 if they wanted it to.

The pastbin will probably wind up being about 60% accurate. The idea of subraces is really interesting (and evil way of Blizz to get more $$$ from race changes).

But even if we get 60%, it sounds like it will be an interesting expac, if they designers deliver.

I'd be pretty pissed if we don't get a free character customization on every character when the new models come out.
