So, why not support stuff for people other than yourself? grats on your late may ra-den kill. Now can you be happy for others and what they want?
and if the current trend continues with sub losses, we would see about 5.5 million towards the mid/end of next xpac.
A new class? Highly unlikely. We just got monk. Even tho, there is a slight chance of a new talent for buffing, they might just might maybe go for a class that focuses just on buffing tho.. That would be very boring therefor highly unlikely.
A new race? Likely.
Bring back Legion? Errr.. Am I the only one who did not like TBC?
- Level cap raised to 95.
- New race models including worgen and goblin(Now before you say they won't change worgen and goblin; They have said several times they want to re-do the worgen and goblin because they were not satisfied with what they got at launch of Cata.)
- New race(s).
- New continent; Why you may ask? Blizz has also said several times the majority did not like visiting azeroth again(People loved Northerend and Outland). People like new continents, therefor the possibility of a new continent is something that could happen. Or if they really are going for a place that already exist they have to remake so much it feels new.
- New graphic mechanics.
- Updated NPC models
- And alot of other new things to come.
Also; Am I the only one who wants to see the return of Lich King and the scourge?
We never actually saw the scourge invade azeroth so why not make that?
But what do I know eh?
South seas expac.
Naga and old god(s).
Wow, you guys sure know how to dream up and exciting, original expac.
What I propose:
The titans arrive on azeroth in advance of the legion, running from them, as it were. They've been at war with them for some time now and have little choice but to run, as the legion has conquered most of the known universe. The new path of the titans feature is introduced in the pre-expansion patch. We each choose one of the members of the pantheon to champion (who all reside in the various titan cities around azeroth), and go through "the path of the titans", as they prepare us for the coming invasion. The titan you choose will act kinda like wrathion did throughout MoP. The titan you choose will probably be acording to your role, but maybe it could be per class...less regrets down the road with that scenario.
The invasion happens in 6.0, and the first couple leveling zones are us repelling said invasion. We use the various parts of the legion invasion ships to repair the exodar, and we use it as our hub as we go to various legion and titan held planets to fight this war. As each major patch comes out, the exodar can park in orbit of a different planet while we port down to the new dailies zone or whatever it is.
Beats the heck out of naga.

There's just as much chance that we'll get a new class as we'll be getting a new race. Especially given that Blizzard is working on new models for vanilla races.
A new class won't effect Monks much. Monk players will continue to play Monks even if a new class is introduced. Just how it is.
You totally dropped the ball here. I asked what the difference between an Enigneer and a Tinkerer is.Engineering allows you to build mounts and items. A Tinker class would allow you to perform a role (tanking/Healing/DPS) using abilities, CDs, and talents.
If the next xpac is a fan favorite for lore, it will probably see a sub increase to 9m or so. If not it will see an increase and quickly fall again. If the xpac has a good theme and is mechanically good, subs may rise to something like 9m and fall substantially slower then normal ending the xpac at 8m or so.

Now if there's an issue with the name "Tinker", there's also Technician, Inventor, Mechanic, Machinist, etc. to choose from.
I un-subbed pretty recently until the new xpac, I was honestly fine with the game until MoP was released, the whole Asian theme of the expansion really turned me off after a while. Going to Blizzcon this year so I'm pretty stoked for a legion expansion though.

If Blizzard deems the lore too close (for some reason), then Blizzard can call the class anything from Artificers to Technicians and have Tinker as a spec. The point is that the next class will be technology-based, and have abilities from the WC3 Tinker hero.
Deal with it.

Nor is it guaranteed that the next class will have a tech theme. An XPac with an Emerald Dream slant could justify a Dragon themed class for example.
To be honest, the engineering profession should be renamed "Tinker" as it signifies a less professional, amateurish dabbler. The tech class itself should be called engineer.
Or - radical - the Engineering skill could be removed, and reworked into a secondary profession where it simply gives the player the ability to use tech gear without mishap. Crafted items can then be split between other professions or maybe even become a class skill.
A Tinkerer is someone who has devoted their life to the pursuit of technological advancement and uses it in every task, challenge, goal they face in life.
It's the difference between an adventurer who dabbles in archaeology and a lorewalker.
Or the difference between a hunter, who utilizes a bit of magic to enhance his weapon's shots, and a mage who devotes themselves fully to studying the arcane.

The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was... inconsolable.
