Nov 1st 2010 3:13PM actually, continuing my thought....it seems like the elementals are like Plato's Forms, they exist on a higher plane, and merely instantiate themselves in the physical world. So Azeroth, Outland and every other world will have elementals, who are merely avatars of the ideal elementals who exist on the Elemental Plane.
Nov 1st 2010 3:08PM I think it does, though. I mean, the elements on Azeroth and in Outland are certainly connected- otherwise, why were they summoning Ahune to Zangermarsh? I mean, he's supposed to be Neptulon's servant, but Neptulon is on Azeroth. It seems like the elements are universal.
Oct 23rd 2010 1:37AM so here's my idea. Outland and Azeroth are being somehow drawn into each other by the Dark Portal (let's assume an Old God is behind it, they're usually behind everything). You could get bleed over in some areas- those creepy spore things show up in the wetlands, or Centaur wandering around Nagrand. It'd be a fun use of phasing. You could do a whole world event like the Shifting Sands was, but focused around fixing the balance between the two worlds before they destroy each other.
Incidentally, this is inspired by Noozles. Best 80s cartoon.
