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.

    I don't think the website is bought by Blizzard, go to www.theburningcrusade.com www.cataclysm.com www.wrathofthelichking.com or www.mistsofpandaria.com and none of them are official.

    But it still doesn't debunk Warlords of Draenor as the next expansion.

    For people just getting here let me sum up most of this thread:

    "OMG GUYS IF THEY ADD [ANYTHING, EVERYTHING, NOTHING] ITS SUCKS AND IM GOING TO TAKE MY TOYS AND GO HOME! HAHA SUCKERS"

    I still love the game, still going to play it, still going to laugh at all the whiners...

    Warlords of Draenor realistically sounds like a guild name.... hence the website buy a month ago. and then a "leak" on this site with the same name that some random probably saw and was like "hmmm imma have fun on the forums today" and then someone else picked up on it and registered it as blizzard ala "Dark Below" style

    but who knows. i could be eating my words next week

    I don't know but to me this does not seem right they built up Vol'jin, Jaina, Lor'thamar, Anduin and Varian over an entire expansion just to have them be like oh well Outlands 2.0 THE WARLORDS EDITION (TM). I feel like this is alot of lost story line potential just to bring back the "FEELS" in my opinion The Dark Below is a much more logical lead into the legion. Think about this Jaina brings Kul'Tiras back into the fold, Vol'jin enlightens us in his knowledge of the trolls and could have some insight into Zandalar and the Zandalari and Lor'thamar being of high elf decent and by that extension highborn could have some knowledge about Queen Azshara and her people. I Don't know but this lore line seems a lot more elegant and thought out compared to the return to outlands. That's just my two cents.

    Huh... Well this is interesting... Going to revamped Outland? Another piece of Draenor? Time Travel? What warlords? Orcs? Orgres? Mok'nathal? Naga? Illidan? Legion?

    I have no idea! Doesn't indicate anything in particular leading to Old Gods, Azshara or Legion. So yay, oblivious'ness! So excited for next week! ^^

    I really think it's a Hearthstone booster pack that you will be able to buy in-game (remember that the game is F2P but you'll be able to buy cards and booster packs, right ?), Hearthstone cards are about characters, and this title is about characters (Warlords), so I think it would make much more sense.

    Well Outland was huge before it was destroyed. If we go back there pre-explosion that would be epic. But if they re-skinned Outland via Cata style that would be good as well. Its win win for Blizz imo.

    first patch -> go to revamped Outland where is some corrupt Drandei group gone wild. a Drandei raid (yay slaying goats).
    second patch -> a reintroduction of Halaa with a raid focused Time Travel, some bosses from the past. Illidan anyone?
    third patch -> Legion returns full time, some world event in a style of what we seen with SoO and Vol'jin. some world quests, scenarios and a Legion themed raid.


    my wild guess how its gonna be.

    I just really hope there is a new class. I'm really looking forward to playing a new class (preferably ranged).

    I guess some of you didn't pay attention to the last part of the Legendary quest line. When Wrathion mentions the return of the Burning Legion. So I am not surprised about the return to Outland or something similar to a COT Draenor

    While this MIGHT not be the expansion, it's most definitely a product of some kind. The trademark says that it's been approved under Blizzard's name so.. It's something. We just don't know what yet

    EDIT: Read something wrong, it was the indexing that was approved. My bad

    Yes, because the Legion invading logically implies traveling back to another planet's past.
    Wait.
    Wat.

    But What if the next expansion is mix of with Azara and The Burning Legion???

    Like Azhara is the raid boss and Sargeras is the next expansion end game boss??? :P

    I will be waiting for the affirmation that this is a hoax or unrelated to WoW. Pleeeeease just be a Hearthstone card set!

    Sometimes I wonder if Blizzard is creating these just to fuck with us. Like, created 10 of them, and MAYBE one of them is an actual thing, the rest are there just to frustrate the playerbase lol.

    Seems odd that it was filed in New Zeland, like fake odd. Where does Blizzard usually file their trademarks? The US patent Office.

    That would be too damn obvious.

    The question is, if we are going to the Dreanor (either revamped Outland or back in time to the original world) which is a homeworld for the Orcs (yea yea, and Draenei - lol) - should we prepare for another Horde-tied arc-story? Quite frankly, this is what bothers me the most probably.
