Blizzard Trademarks "Warlords of Draenor" - WoW Expansion
Blizzard just trademarked "Warlords of Draenor" in New Zealand. It was then registered in Australia shortly after.

  • Computer game software, computer game discs, downloadable computer game software, computer game software downloadable from a global computer network, interactive multimedia computer game program; downloadable electronic game software for use on portable electronic devices such as mobile and cellular phones, laptops, handheld computers, and tablet PCs.
  • Entertainment services, namely, providing on-line computer games; providing on-line non-downloadable computer games that may be accessed via a global computer network; providing online news and information in the field of computer games.

It's also worth mentioning that warlordsofdraenor.com was registered a month ago.

I do realize that we had a lot of fun times with trademarks in the past (*cough* Dark Below *cough*) but let's just say that on a personal level I'm pretty confident about this one. I'll leave the speculation up to you guys until Blizzcon.

    Again? we haven't had a demon based xpac since BC so its not like they flood us with demons. Also i very much enjoy Legion lore so just assuming its Legion based ( not even sure that would be the case mind you) doesn't mean magically blizzard will roll all their ways of doing things back to BC.

    I'm not buying this whole "Grom is the main villain" rumour. That'd be too much of a repeat of Garrosh. No doubt he'll play a central role, but the main villain again? I actually think they might be trying the whole "no main villain" thing they were going for in MOP. Just building new lore and characters, with each patch being it's own sidestory.

    It could work in theory - but for the 10th anniversary it's a risk. People are expecting something big.

    I dont buy this. First of all nozdormu gave up his powers which means no way of going back in time second of all if we go back in time we would screw up all the progress we have made deathwing would have destroyed the world ragnaros would be trying to burn our world no orcs would have made it to azeroth which means no lich king and the old gods would be free to roam the world now I am not saying that screwing the timelines up is a bad thing if u are alliance than that means a shit tone of loot but horde well it wouldnt of been formed without thrall soo that means the alliance gets bigger.
    Also a new race, bronze dragonflight would be cool but it still sounds very unlikely I am more convinced at it being a future time travel but then again I am not even sure if nozdormus dragonflight has the capabilitys of time travel over diffrent worlds I thought that he only had power in azeroth

    As someone who supported the idea of the Dark Below, I welcome this with open arms and I am glad we finally have a name.

    I hate the burning legion, while I had fun in tbc I hated everything lore based around it with Illidan being an exception. I hope that stays away.

    seems all those bitching for a burning legion x-pack are getting their wish

    i just hope they redo outland at the same time

    Sure you will. Regardless I doubt it will be that.

    The name at first would lead you to think time travel. It could be a xpac set on the rest of draenor but i am not sure how that would work out. I had hoped for a legion based expansion but i am not sure about this. It hints at time travel which may have some legion stuff but mostly orc and infinite dragon flight. The more i think about it the more i am not 100% sold this is it prob more like 60% sure atm.

    It only says Warlords OF Draenor...maybe they will be coming to us instead of us going to them? *shrug* putting it out there anyway.

    I don't see why that Jinyu's vision for the Emperor doesn't come true by the Burning Legions/various demons falling down on us again

    Honestly, if you are hating on the Legion then you are not a real Warcraft fan. The Legion are the biggest baddies we can go after, and if you ask me it's about damn time we went after them before they can come to us. Not to mention that this probably means we get to meet up with Illidan again, and maybe work with him instead of against him (time travel would be the only way though). I doubt they would add another class in, but it would be a perfect time for the Demon Hunter class.

    I just don't get the hate from this community. All people do is complain. They can never be excited from anything and expect everyone to cater to their wants. We are following a storyline and this is where it was naturally going to progress. If you didn't realize that before then you haven't been paying attention AT ALL. There have been numerous hints to us fighting the Legion head on, or at the very least it has alluded to their return.

I don't think even Blizzard is that dumb. Outland again might not be bad, but having a main villain just like the last one seems way too repetitive if that leak is true now. Also having a whole expansion be time travel.. where you already know the story and the outcome, could be boring.
    I agree with you so much. I don't want the entire expansion to be time travel, I would prefer having one zone and maybe 2 dungeons as maximum

    There you go! Did just read this on twitter:

    @Loreology Will we ever find out what happened to Alleria and Turalyon in Outland or have me and my friend missed something important?

    .@ladycazzeh Not allowed to say at the current time. What I can say is that they are not forgotten.

    It's the original leak, from a few days ago.

    Some of you have forgotten that there are unactive portals in Outland. For example in Zangarmarsh, Nagrand and Blade's Edge Mountains. So I don't know why you are even thinking about "coming back in time".

    Well is draenor outland. Didn't the draenai come to outland from somewhere else. or was that the orcs. If either race is from draenor then we're going to their home planet to fight a bunch of maniacal tribal leaders?

    http://www.wowwiki.com/Draenor

    Or do we use the other portals to travel to other continents/planets. hmm.

    In any event, bring it on. This panda, China crap is sooo boring. Only cata bored me more.
