Am I the only one (didn't read a huge part of the thread!) That wishes it would be something with the burning legion, and a sort of re-hash of TBC?
Let me explain; I don't want them to take outlands and re-do it. Outlands is my favorite zone, anytime one of my IRL friends is leveling a character is at my house, I hop on their computer and level their character through all of outlands. I don't know why, I cna't get enough of it. Besides outlands, my favorite zone would be vashj'ir, then it's a weird list from there. Yeah... Anyway, I don't want them to take the time and effort to completely re-do outlands like they did in Cata -- that's time an effort completely wasted on a good expansion. I just want there to be a bad-ass world that's like outlands from 90-95 (I presume those levels), where the continents are unique as hell looking.
Nagrand was nothing special, least favorite zone of TBC. Blade's edge ran second in there; it was unique, but overall it just seemed like a boring barrens with spikes in the way. But other than that, every other zone is so unique and bad-ass looking, it looks so.. different. Like a real fantasy.
I'd love it, I don't know, that's just me. Watch them make it a burning legion expansion, but have zones like cataclysm, there 4 of them are bland/the same thing we're used to with maybe one unique zone that's completely different. I'd be maaaaaaaaaaad...
