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.

    Can't wait that's for sure! ;D
    Not really, Draenor is a good occasion to introduce ogres as a playable race (Horde?) and maybe demon hunter as new hero class.
    That way we're left with the same problem from 2006 - who could be the new Alliance race. Broken (+ more dreanei lore)?

    On the other hand, I for one am still (foolishly most likely) hoping for a new Warcraft RTS "Warlords of Draenor" would make for some awesome campaigns.

    WC4 isn't happening anytime soon with WoW furthering the story in the Warcraft franchise.

    I'd like to see a revamp of Outland and the many scattered unused Portals take us to new areas.

    I dont think you get it yet: I'm agreeing with you, and you with me. Messing with time is a horrible idea, both realistically and for an expansion. If, indeed, the expansion revolves around time travel.

    I think I like the dark below better if I had a choice between the two titles. My first thought of "Warlords of Draenor" is "Draenor had Warlords"? Who knew!

    I'd prefer a faction of Ethereals for Alliance.

    What's with all the hate about the title and what not. I personally think the title sounds great (much better than Mists of Pandaria, and yes I love this current expansion nonetheless). And if those "leaks" prove to be correct, a return to Outland would be awesome, and perhaps we even get to see Draenor in it's prime, you know, pre-Outland, assuming time travel is somehow involved. What if it actually is? Why all the hate on time travel? Just think: we finally get to see some major old school lore characters, maybe even take part in major lore events etc. There's just so many possibilities. As to making Grom the antagonist, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how and why would Blizzard do something like that. Whatever the next expac brings I for one have faith in Blizzard.

    I've long thought Blizzard could easily do an RTS title that is set in the past. I actually made a thread at one point about how it could revolve around the war between the Titans and Old Gods. WoW progressing the story means nothing when you have such a long timeline of events.

    I think it could work if it was a sub plot. Just not over the course of an expansion. As it is we have no context to work with so fearing the worst is not wise.

    If he repaired the whole planet all by himself(No artifacts involved) I will join the Thrall is nuts crowd.

    I don't think they will, they already said that revamping Azeroth took too much time away from creating NEW content.
    Although Outland is slightly smaller than entire Azeroth and would take less time to revamp, but i still doubt they'll do it.

    It's possible to go back to Outland without it being another Cataclysm of recycled feeling content. Draenor was smashed into pieces and radically altered in the form of Outland, they could make it look like a totally brand new place when incredibly distinct alien forests and landscapes covered the places we've seen that are now just massive harsh deserts and shattered floating rocks, imagine Netherstorm or Hellfire Citadel more like Nagrand or Terrokar. They could feasibly alter things enough to make it feel like a brand new place in all but name for the most part with certain universal features to the land you'll recognize underneath it all at times I think.

    Warlords of Draenor doesn't sound well. The dark below sounds ten times better. I mean when you pronounce it/write it. I don't believe it's expansion name though BC-like exp would be nice.

    Alliance will get Arrakoa as playable race.

    Id prefer Arakkoa or Baby Gronn. Can you imagine the rage if Horde got ogres and Alliance ended up getting their badass big brothers?

    Time travel could work, if the passage through time is one-way only. Think about it.
