That looks really nice, even though it looks not much more different from the already existing troll settlements. But it's good that the Darkspear recieved their well-deserved capital.
Will there be boat transport between Darkspear Strand and the Echo Isles / Darkspear Isle?
Also, is it the same Darkspear Isle the Darkspear trolls originally came from, or another one, from the Echo Isles, that bears the same name?
And... what on Zanza's name is a big Azshara statue doing on the Echo Isles?

Wow, look at that.. Very interesting. But why are half of the huts on the isle burnt down? And it seems very bare, like it was abandoned or never finished.

But look! Stone structures! New ones! We'll finally move past the huts and go back at least partially to what we used to have.

The things happening outside Orgrimmar are interesting too. But.. Where are the zeppelin towers? Are we abandoning zepps in favour of ships? (the dock seems to suggest that) But.. you can't take a ship to Thunder Bluff. (Or can you? O.o)

And to answer your question, Snicka.. If the isle is visible from the Durotar coast, it's -not- the Darkspear Isles that we originated from. Smile The lie just a few miles south of the maelstrom.

Concerning what happened to the Southfury River... maybe you can.
And about the zeppelins... maybe the Steamwheedle Cartel refuses to loan their zeppelins to the Horde after the Bilgewater Cartel joined them?

from the pictures of Orgrimmar i've seen, it looks like we might be catching the zepps from the top of that building in the middle ( roughly where the flightmaster is now) similar to how it works in Northrend.

Also like how each of the races seems to have their own little area in Org (the city seems a lot bigger than it does now for some reason).

I think the huts on the echo isles might be burnt by Naga as there seems to be a statue like you see at their usual places on one of those pics. The Darkspear trolls may spend some time having to fight to keep their new homes.

Where did the Zandalari go?

I guess, after Hakkar was defeated, they were no more interested in Zul'Gurub and returned to Zandalar.

that's what i found odd, they took the time and effort dismantle the whole camp including a stone temple?

Sees a bit strange. And does that also mean all the Zandalari will have returned to Zul'zadar and we can't interact with them any more? Sad

That was your "rouge", Vypra!

Yes, it is change that they took away the temple... unless if that was destroyed in the Cataclysm as well, even the ruins being washed away...

Garrosh spits on Vol'jin? The bastard!

Well, it is not only the trolls of the Heritage of Zandalar that get into trouble when they disagree with the orcs on something...

On one hand, the Zandalari will disappear from Stranglethorn (not from Northrend, though); but on the other hand, Shatterspear village will be a LOT easier to access.

Well, if they disappear, so will the faction and the achievement, most likely.


Also, from what I've read, it seems that the dialogue between Vol'jin and Garrosh was faked. Sad

Very interesting video. But it's obviously an alpha, with changes yet to be made. I'm sure we'll get more than that in stv.


Hmm... beta signups... Part of me wants it. But part of me doesn't. I mean, if you get to play the beta.. then, once cata comes out.. you did it all already, you have already explored it all. It won't be new and shiny anymore.
