We have been hoping for a Great Sea expansion since Blizzard first announced a WoW expansion. When Northrend in WotLK matched Lands of Mystery so much, we were all sure that the next expansion would be a South Seas expansion. Two expansions later, still no islands steeped in lore.

A reference to Ozumat's title is what I hope it will be. With the Zandalari still out there, and Azshara attempted to be set up in Cataclysm, I will say maybe. I'm no Leviathon though.

I wonder how much they have left of Azjol-Nerub left over from when it was supposed to be a zone separate from the instances.

But Blizzard doesn't. I can therefore predict the result.

Kyalin, if you're to start bitching about an entire expansion of Night Elf lore, why did you cry when they were ignored? Make up your mind.

Here's to convince you it'll be good:

Guys, guys. Guys!

It's clearly a WoW/D3/SC2 crossover expansion.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

Kyalin didn't cry when they were ignored. She was anti night elves getting more lore in Cataclysm (which is a shame, because despite 4.2, they got a lot of interesting lore....Most of which is negated, or at least made WTF worthy, by the whole light thing, but hey. Horrible decision is horrible)

Now, their just isn't enough interesting left.. Though, to be fair, that didn't stop humans.

I dunno, literary advancement seems to have stopped them flat. Sure, they get lots of presence but they don't actually seem to move anywhere.

The whole Alliance stagnates at this point.

Just my 2 cents, I believe it is a Diablo 3 expansion dealing with where the Angel of Wisdom went....underneath Sanctuary, Hell, Or Heaven which is known as the Dark Below.

I love times like this because I can use my status as an ex-Blizzard intern to score some nerd tail by promising to tell them what the next WoW expansion is.

Hit it, feed them some B.S, then never be seen by that person again forever?

I am fairly convinced that this is WoW expansion for a simple reason that:
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/reaper-of-souls/
There is an alternative link where same image is called teaser Diablo 1X or something like that. My wild guess is that Diablo expansion is called Reaper of Souls.

How boring. Now I can't see any wild speculation no more.

Lol, mmo-champion is onto it.

The text at the bottom of the picture says that reaper of souls is a Blizzard trademark in US or other countries, so I guess its registered somewhere else.

Yep.

Start the wild speculation on what "The Dark Below" really is.

I'm going to be bummed if it's an Azshara expansion, to be honest. I wanna go see Argus.

You guys know.. Blizzard really isn't that original.

The Burning Legion is painted as the ultimate threat in Warcraft. And Wrathion has painted the Legion invading Azeroth. Even nearly fully imprisoned, the Old Gods could manipulate things how they wanted it in War of the Ancients.

We won't see the Burning Legion until Azeroth's threats are finished. Which means the Old Gods WILL be dealt with, and more likely than not, the Titan plot will be concluded before we venture into Argus and Outland and any threat outside of Azeroth again.

With that being said, N'zoth and Azshara are a peculiar threat, depending on how much was retconed. We know there are some pretty major powers out in the world from the Old Kaldorei empire. We run into one in Winterspring where it's heavily implied that it was more powerful than the Sunwell (what with them leaving the Sunwell's radiance a century ago to study this thing, which has to be hell on their addiction.)

Azshara's had the last 10,000 years to collect things like that at the bottom of the sea. AND the remains of the original Well of Eternity.

What was Azshara trying to do in War of the Ancients? Reshape Azeroth. What do the Old Gods want to do? Reshape Azeroth.

I still think it'd be lame if there's an Argus to go to.

I hope its Azshara, and just Azshara. I don't want them to waste the Emerald Dream when it could carry its own expansion. I also don't want playable naga to happen.
