    What could the "surprise" we should expect from Blizzard be ?

    Remember how they said it was nothing big, yet we'd be happy about it ?
    I'm thinking "missing" tier sets for Monk and DK (7 for dk, 11 for monk if i'm not mistaken)

    Thoughts ?

    I'm hoping that we'll get a release date for the new Vanilla Eight models and the dance studio will release with them.

    Awesome sig by Elyaan is awesome.

    the new models and animations will most likelly come with the next expansion, it's too big of a 'feature' and it can very well be one of the selling points for the next xpac. it's possible that a few old players will return back to the game cause of this aswell

    Oh, I'm almost entirely certain that new models won't be something put in during an expansion's lifetime. I'm just saying I expect to at least see teasers of the new human and orc, and that the dance studio will come along with them.

    As for the 5.4 surprise... well, warriors can TG polearms in 5.4 which will by spiffy. Otherwise, I dunno. Probably the ability to save action bar layouts; they've been talking about it a lot lately as an alternative to more spec slots.

    People will be returning regardless. I think it would be smart for Blizzard to curb their end-expansion losses by adding those features early. Or maybe not...the last time they did that we got Dragon Soul.

    Didn't it have something to do with old raids, or a new major feature like what LFR was?

    Animations (dances) were promised already in an expansion and taken back while they were in beta. I wouldn't hold my breath for them.

    The 5.4 surprise is some feature for the whole game, not something for one class (think of it how they added transmogrification).

    Well since they are playing around with gear scaling and stuff, maybe old raids scaled to current level, or us scaled down.

    I think it will be old content dungeons/raids scaled up to level cap every expansion for LFR/LFD, with subsequent achievements and valor/jp for completion.

    Didn't they say it had something to do with old raids? I don't really remember, but I have a weird feeling their "new exciting" feature will just be them rehashing old raids, perhaps with scaling or with LFR for older raids. Then again, perhaps having a MC LFR for level 60 characters could be fun, who knows, would probably be stupid though since I'm pretty sure level 56 gear now is far better than level 60 gear was back in Vanilla. So I'm not too sure, either way I wouldn't hold my breath for anything too good to be honest.

    They wanted to get the new dances in with Wrath, but the models gave them a lot of trouble and by the time their plates were cleared enough to pick at them, it was time to start work on Cataclysm; ditto for MoP. My guess is they eventually just decided to hold off and bring them in with the new models to kill two birds with one stone.

    Did they actually hinted at old raids already, or is just players' speculation? Of what I've been reading so far, they were always refering to it as "the unanounced feature". Can you give a link to this please?

    Cross faction dungeon queuing/lfr/scenarios.

    They've done a lot of letting Horde play as Alliance and vice versa so it could be some kind of system like that to make queue times faster. Could make it optional too so that the factionally prideful can opt out.

    In MoP they've been playing around alot with more world content, trying to give players things to do outside of instances. So I think it may be something along the lines of dynamic world events.
