The Dragonflight leaks aren't over yet - and this one looks particularly credible.
WoW Wednesday: More Dragonflight Leaks (Probably) Reveal Main Villain
Dragonflight was finally unveiled last week. And thanks to the torrent of leaks (and accurate speculation) preceding its official announcement, it arrived as a surprise to basically nobody. That's not to say, of course, that it didn't stick the landing. In fact, the vindication made the reveal all the sweeter. Which is why we're still clawing around for even more Dragonflight leaks. And as luck would have it, there's still a trickle or two to look at.
The Dragonflight leaks we reported on were just a few of many. And needless to say, some were more credible than others. But there was one in particular that hit the nail on the head with all of the information that the Dragonflight announcement revealed - but included reveals that are yet to pass. Be warned: spoilers regarding the main villain (probably) lie ahead.
The leak was brought to public attention by Red Shirt Guy (yes, theRed Shirt Guy) whose friend directed him to a 4chan post from a couple of weeks ago. In it, one poster listed all the following information:
new race Dracthyr
new class Invoker
dragon isles 5 zones
rework talents, dragonflight covennant [sic], no player power".
'Invoker' typo aside, everything here is spot on, assuming the 'dragonflight covenant' relates to the new Dragon Riding mechanic. But below that are three other tidbits that are yet to be confirmed:
"new allied race preorder bonus
wrathion and alexstasza main heroes, villain is murozond
release q1 2023"
So if this Dragonflight leak is to be believed, we have yet to see Murozond confirmed as the archvillain, and a new allied race (separate from the Dracthyr) that will come as a pre-order bonus, with an expected full release in 2023.
Although this leaker has already proved their credibility, what's even more promising is that these other bits of info are very believable. The leader of the corrupted Infinite dragonflight is a prime choice for the Dragonflight big bad.
As an aside, the delayed reveal of the main villain is interesting in that it forms one of many parallels being drawn between Dragonflight and Mists of Pandaria. If you fancy jumping down that particular rabbit hole - there's a compelling Reddit thread dedicated to it.
