The Allied races thing seems to be real. Slightly odd choices.

The theme makes me worry that we're going to be pressured into PvP (or pseudo-PvP) even more than before. I hope that's not the case.
I also saw new lizard (warpstalker skeleton) types and sort of isopod/beetle ones that the snake people ride as mounts.

Ugh do you think this'll make people go back to arguing over who's better Horde or Alliance? I don't want the forums to go back to that XD Peace man.

Beta can't come soon enough, that looks so good. The beasts they showed were awesome, including those tree cats.

I have a feeling a certain old god will be showing up in this one. Being that it's the sea and all.

may have lowkey teared up seeing Sylvanas kicking butt and rallying the Horde so I guess I'll come back to WoW for this one. :,D VERY excited, both factions look amazing and this expac looks like it'll have everything I've been hoping for- pirates, dinosaurs, trolls, and kul'tiras.

I got first post in that new thread, woo. Thanks Wain.

Back to this topic of general info, I am not too keen on the idea of the artifact neck. I know he tried to make it sound less god awful than the RNG clusterF at the end of Legion, but I'm nervous about that happening again. They'd literally be choking us with artifacts.

I'm worried about how global zone scaling is going to affect farming old content. Even if there are caps on scaling, will it mean that Broken Isles content is going to scale to 120 and so be harder to farm in the next expac than it otherwise would have been? How about Draenor content and raids? :/
