Is there any pattern behind these tremors?
Could always hope that Queen Aszhara is moving the continental plates or whatever preparing to raise things from the depths of the sea. or sink things, but prbly abit more simple just to put out more land instead of changing the world once again.
I trained some random elite turtle a few weeks ago that was bugged in this way.
It's always possible that it is "something", but this is quite a bit different from how the Cataclysm event played out. It is true that people dismissed the early Earhquakes before Cataclysm, but a LOT of people were saying they'd seen them. This time it has been relatively few people, and people have been "noticing" these "earthquakes" for months and months. So unless Blizzard has been running a pre-expansion event for almost two years (since before Mists)--It's nothing more than various effects caused by pets, items like the racer, etc.
Not to mention that, as has been pointed out above, this would mean them repeating the exact same pre-expansion event as Cataclysms. Which I can't imagine they'd do since, one, people get angry about the effort in expansion events, and it seems logical they'd put a lot of work into the next one... and two, the most likely expansions are Legion-related (Legion come from the sky, not below the earth) or Azshara-related (Naga come from the sea, not below the earth). A more likely event is a carefully implemented increase in the amount of rain and thunder storms in all zones.
Or it could be something else entirely... I wonder what the aqir are up to after all this time?
They are the two choices that are by far the most logical.
It is completely possible that Blizzard will go in a completely unexpected direction.
A lot of people brought up Azjol'Nerub, and how the dev team was disappointed with canceling the questing zone, when The Dark Below was in the trademarking process, since its name could easily be applied to cavernous places underground. -- And believe me, I would LOVE a Nerubian expansion. But the truth of the matter is that the game has lost a lot of subs, people were largely unhappy with Cata, and Mists, while it was an amazing expansion, received a lot of criticism for being an expansion based on a lot of new lore given to a minor (Story-wise) location.
Do you really think it's more likely for Blizzard to risk another new unique type of expansion?
I really hope they would, but it seems to me to be a rather low chance.

I dunno - Blizzard seems to consider Mists a smashing success. So yeah, I'd be willing to bet they'd go out on that limb again.
If we do get some Azshara based, you can bet there'll be land risen. Blizzard has admitted that there were problems with Vash'jir - an entire expansion based around that wouldn't work. You can almost guarantee that the Tomb of Sargeras will be back - and that needs to be raised from the ocean floor where we left it in The Frozen Throne. Somewhere, there's going to need to be a good solid landmass that we quest on - something that doesn't have funky weird mechanics in it (take note, I liked Vash'jir, but am willing to admit there are issues there, especially if you're melee).
Something digging up wouldn't necessarily have to be the entire expansion concept - it could be a precursor. There are massive places underground where even the elementals don't like to go, massive caverns. This mentioned in the same text that discusses Thrall discovering an island in the mist and a dwarven consciousness protecting the eastern continent, shortly before encountering Deathwing in an underground location (during Charge of the Aspects). Why don't even the elementals want to go there? Why could the Legion not be working on a new attack vector we aren't anticipating?
Personally? I think something's coming. I don't think it's the Legion, but I think it's still a major threat. Wrathion was simply using imagery we were familiar with - the fel fireballs falling from the sky - to show us it. He makes us believe the Legion is coming back, but it's something that, in his eyes, is much worse. (I want to bet on it being the Infinite Dragonflight, but I know it's probably not.)
We'll see what it is in time.
Sure it wasn't someone's pet core hound/devilsaur?
If not, maybe I should spend less time in Shrine and see if I notice this in SW.
probably people bringing back mammoth parades
but no i havent noticed tremors when im in SW
All I can say is, stay off the ground!
Keep my feet off the ground?
I was in Exodar last night on my hunter, and I noticed the game shake. I thought nothing of it. But who knows?
