Mind. Blown.

edit: I guess Granger wants me to put a guess here.

Best I can come up with that someone hasn't already said is "reskin of the portico" and "new form of charterstone." Pretty lame, right?

Honestly, all I can say at this point is that I hope all this talk of "dungeons" and "other realms" are wrong. Part of HnH's charm is a complete absence of this traditional MMO schlock that appears. Admittedly, I trust Jorb and Loftar to do it on a far more interesting level than any other developer would, but honestly, it'd just be a letdown. The grounded, down-to-earth nature of the fantasy/magic in HnH is what has drawn me to it for so long.

Dryads are nifty, sure it may be nice to have something done involving them, but nothing that makes them NPC like. The quest givers being natural features in the wild is perfectly in theme, I feel that a humanoid element you could interact with any further than that just... leaves our target area.

Dungeons? Ugh, can this not become every other MMO? The other players in the world are my instances and raid dungeons, and most of them are higher level battles than I can typically hope to conquer.

I'm hoping it's walls we can walk on and houses that are no longer instances but exist in the world... I believe the tech involved in making these would include bridges. Also, given that the rendering update would go hand in hand with accomplishing these goals, it seems like a likely combination. The same thing would allow for far more customized houses and improved aesthetics all around. So that's my guess.

Walls/Houses/Bridges update.

I bet it’s gonna be something to summon the end of the world, like the end of w8 (I think it was w8 anyways, I know it was somewhat recent
Video games were a mistake.

about a week ago loftar added some map related code to the vanilla client which could mean either
- a support for multiple worlds (or "pocket" worlds)
- just a fix for the lingering map tiles after world reset

It will be something related to the 100th independence day of Finland.

It will be like everything else that's new to the game. Either overpowered or underpowered.

It's never anything we think it is, so it's gotta be the most obscure answer.

It's the new wound system!

Had a moment of deja vu today and for some reason i thought a village mate was complaining about it raining outside and not wanting to go out. so i was thinking maybe we get the client optimization with weather like rain and snow and wind, although would that be classified as seasons?

My bet are Dragons! Somewhere deep in my memory I remember Jorbtar willing to add them as some kind of devastating fore, so I bet on Dragons and this pile being their bones!
