    It'd be hilarious if it turns out the dark below really is the next wow expansion, and blizzard has just gone out of it's way to make us believe that WoD is real. Infinitely small chance it's true, but still.

    HONESTLY!
    JUST WAIT AND SEE! WoD CAN'T BE THE NEW EXPANSION!

    Oh, wait... Damn!
