we will definetly see Galakrond Jr. with his evil looking monocle and mustache.
Honorable mention should go to Chromatus, he isn't technically alive or dead, he is locked in an arcane prison in an inactive state.
No way in hell will Blizzard be able to do Galakrond with the way WoW is now. Deathwing was garbage when it came to implementation and he was the size of Galakrond's toe.
We may have the origin story of the infinite dragonflight that for sure the is an opportunity they can't pass and they can use cromie maybe develop the fan favorite character learning more of her 😉
A whelp of Galakrond or a Galakrond "reborn" is possible because they could include a younger, much less problematic model than Elder Galakrond. Chromatus and the Old Gods? Also possible (The Old Gods never truly die, haven't we learned yet?). The Infinite Flight? Sure enough!But so far one thing we were told is the "Elemental Proto-Drake Lords" will likely be unleashed... They COULD, bring Galakrond back, or their elemental overlords from each plane (except fire is a bit compromised right now ain't it. The new fire lord is probably still just a spark).Many options, some not even discussed ofc. But with enough planning I say nothing is impossible.PS: I agree, please let us kill Chromie. No second thought on what they are or anything, Chromie is just an annoying character and I hate them. Plus, the fact someone has brought so many plans together to do so already probably speaks for the fact they will be corrupted to become infinite or something, and probably NEEDS to be destroyed BEFORE it happens.
I really hope they include the infinite dragonflight and Murozond!
Sounds like they wanna keep it shrouded for a bit longer, which suggests it might be a threat from the "inside" or a currently friendly character. Such as Wrathion, Dragon Isles probably hides some crazy Titan Tech in a raid called Uldaz or something that he wants to use against the future Legion or Void attack that he is so adamant is happening. So mostly our enemies will be Titan Defense systems (to make people nostalgic about Ulduar), Blacktalon Agents and maybe some cloned black montrosity Wrathion created.But maybe not, a lot of things could happen in a place that been abandoned (?) for 10,000 years.Hell even Chromie could be the BBEG with Blizzards writing.
ChromatusThe only perfected Twilight Dragon, the powers of all 5 aspects, defeated but only imprisoned
I feel like Nozdormu becoming Murozond would be interesting to see, maybe we somehow bring about his corruption via our questing leading to us having to empower another bronze dragon to become leader of the dragonflight. This would mean that Alexstrasza would be the last of the original aspects to still be alive and maybe a mentor to the new leaders of the other dragonflights.
If Murozond is going to be tricked by the Old Gods in the future, then obviously the Old Gods aren't dead. I think this is going to be the next story arc, and Dragonflight is just the introduction.
Galakrong 1000% sure is boss fight in 10.0 , after stone guy shutdown/made that huge yellow energy beacon active again it invoked power of dragons ... and some other bad guys will use that power to re-animate or resurrect the father of all dragons.First raid will propably be gnoll themed after that galakrond and last raid will include bad guy from alliance side.
Considering the aspects sort of were infused with the powers of certain titans , Galakrond could also have been infused with the powers of a certain member of the pantheon of Death, considering his necromantic abilities. This is a potential link between the 2 latest expansions. If Deathwing was manipulated by the Old Gods , Galakrond could also be another of Zovaal's pawns (or the Primus' if the theory about him , which I love, has some truth in it).There were also the theory that The Primus could use time magic to see again and again the outcomes of battles, so there could also be an infinite dragonflight connection over there. Tbh, the Primus theory is far-fetched, but I would immediately fall in love with Shadowlands' narrative if it was even partially true.But even if the Primus isn't bad, there might still be a connection between the infinite dragonflight and Zovaal, considering his plan was very elaborate and needed certain things to happen, he would possibly require at least future foresight and for the certain task, time dragons could be really helpful.
100% Murozond! He will not be "our" but a dominated Nozdormu from a different timeline!
Somehow I feel that those four "primal protodragon aspects" will eventually give their energy to resurrect Galakrond/create a new one etc.There is also that leak from several days before the announcement that said about Murozond being the villain. Imagine if Nozdormu turns into him and tries to undo his own spell that prevented Deathwing's destruction by the Dragon Soul from being altered. So that he could revive Deathwing, because without him the End of Time cannot come or something like that. Just a thought I had, could be pretty cool imo.
