    I hope the next expansion doesn't thin out the lore like that.
    I didn't liked the MoP lore but the music is epic Wow has tons of lore that is more interesting for me than Pandaria. Although this is personal opinion. I also didn't liked dailies and never did them. Judging from 5.3 and 5.4 patch Blizzard finally understood that dailies is a "cheap" way to gate content and tell a story.
    The trick of selling a PvP-MMO is creating the illusion among gankers that they are respectable fighters while protecting them from respectable fights, as their less skilled half would be massacred and quit instead of “HTFU” as they claim.

    Breaking a code would lead me to believe that you have some sort of answer or hypothesis on what all this may mean. The OP has not given any such information, only a possible puzzle with no solution. Unless someone can link these things together in a manner that involves no straw grasping, then this is purely just wild speculation.

    "Shapeshifting - Druids can assume a variety of animal forms to aid them in both travel and combat. The Night Saber panther and Storm Crow are just two of the shapes Druids will be able to assume." I found this on a archived version of the beta website.

    Sorry i cant post the link.

    In lord of the rings storm crows brought news of storms.

    So storm crows are going to bring us bad news to the druids of a large storm happening and we know Queen Azshara can now control the tide.

    This is reaching. Why would flavour text for a buyable mount that has no relationship to the ingame lore hint at the next expansion? It's just flavour text.

    Not, World of Warcraft: Hastur Hastur Hastur? (And as an extra bonus it will have a stage play mini-game! And there'll be an NPC called the Repairer of Reputations, who will be able to restore your lost rep with factions!)

    you're right, wonder if he is actually still alive though. last thing he said was "i shall take my place among the legends of the past" and then never seen again. would be pretty cool to have medivh back.

    Wrathion: ...Great Crane. You have not seen what I have seen.
    Chi-Ji: You underestimate me.
    Wrathion: ...the fire that once burned the sky will return. It is inevitable. The Burning Legion WILL find Azeroth. Seas of blood, cities in ruins! Who are we - one divided world - to stand against a legion? You speak of hope. Believe me, the thinnest silver of belief that we might somehow survive the coming devastation is all that sustains me.

    Looks like I broke the code, too.

    You can find references to Storm Crows:

    1.) with the Druids of the Talon (in Mount Hyjal)

    2.) with the Cenarion Expedition (Zangarmarsh)

    3.) Ysiel Windsinger (Zangarmarsh) uses a Stormcrow Amulet to transform you into a Stormcrow.

    The term "Stormcrow" seems to be very druid centered. I don't think it necessarily means that we'll see an Emerald Dream expansion, but more that we'll see a return of the Druids of the Talon. The Druids of the Talon were actively trying to protect and restore Mount Hyjal after the effects of Ragnaros and the Druids of the Flame (and previously, The Burning Legion). They're also the more aggressive group of Druids. It makes sense that a "Stormcrow" mount shows up about the same time everybody suspects a Burning Legion expansion.

    an entire expansion on Emerald dream wouldnt be advisable. as said above, its been touched on in Books......

    what I COULD see happening - is a compilation expansion.

    Emerald Dream, Tomb of Sargeras, Argus/Legion Held realms, Zin Azshara, Kul Tiras...... all could be regions, Patches, Raid content and so forth....

    Not necessarily. It is very widely assumed the final expansion of WoW will be burning legion, and the final boss of the entire game will be Sargaras. Wrathion was likely referring to that final xpack, not the coming one.

    It would be weird to reuse Ragnaros as a storyline for the third time, but maybe they're using his essence to open a portal.

    Anyway, it's not impossible for this to be a hint. Maybe the OP is grasping at straws, but Blizzard does like to leave behind hints. Only time will tell which is which.

    Good grief, OP. Seriously? It's just a frakking mount.

    I found a better clue: Wrathion shows us Azeroth being bombarded by what seems to be asteroids. If that doesn't imply the Burning Legion is coming, I don't know what does. He also says we need to stand together to fight this foe, which is a foe unlike any we have ever fought against.

    Whether it'll happen in the next expansion or the one after, I have no idea. Just have to wait for Blizzcon I guess.

    "Sky torn from the sea...", sounds like the dawn of creation in various folklore. Storm Crows according to WC3 lore are shape-shifted druids. The living flame could be a reference to arcane magic, something Archimonde said during the ending cutscenes of Undead campaign in WC3 (he said something about foolish humans trying to use the gift of flame, before wrecking Dalaran).

    I think we have a demon invasion on our hands. And they will be attacking the Emerald Dream.

    Diablo 3 took forever to come out. Meaning this is a hint for Half-life 3.

    I'm so confused as to why this got infracted...

    OT: It's Legion expansion.

    I don't see it as a hint at all!
    I think you're reading too much in this.......
